Probably the stupidest knitting question ever asked...
but does anyone have an easy description of how to make a slip knot?? I cannot make one for the life of me :thinking:

Don't think me too dumb..

okay i took some really bad pictures that might have worked to show you and was about to post them until it dawned on me to consult my friend google. The "yarn" they are using is fairly large but i think it does a fairly good job showing what you do. (for the record...when i was asked if i knew how to make a slip knot i said no....when i was shown how i said "Ooooh THAT'S a slip knot?" i would guess you will too! )

I never did figure out the slip knot thing - I do some weird cast on thingy that I learned in Knitting 101 at LYS that kinda makes the slip knot for you. If I have to make one, I look at a picture. DOH!

If you do the long-tail cast on, you don't need to know how to do a slip knot!
