I did some Amy videos tonight as part of my little self imposed syllabus, and I now know exactly
what you mean. It DOES help to see what the stitches are doing. Thanks for that. I hadn't thought of it. Gives a whole new level of understanding when you need to do something different than what you already know how to do, or are trying to figure out what you're doing wrong.
Joel - I can relate.
I spent 4 or 5 years allowing my anal retentive bend to stop me from KNITTING. I was stitching along ok, but I never got to knitting
cuz I never got past an imperfect row...which was all
of them at first. :rofling:
I decided that I'd rather knit, than unknit, :rofling: so I decided to take another approach this time.
Glad you are working on that too. I'll be reminding you (and me!) with Kelly...
