I am new here. I was reading this thread with interest.... I knit with one needle under my arm as well. I think you have much more control, and it's very fast. I've never been able to master short needles..
I'm working on Violets by the River shawl.
You can see it here.. http://www.blackberry-ridge.com/viosilk.htm
I've always knitted with a printed ( written pattern) which this is.
However, a gal asked me to make a shawl for her for her wedding in August,and I have the pattern and the yarn arriving probably tomorrow.
The only problem is, that it's a CHART..and simple from what I was told, but I have had no experience with charts.....*sigh*
I was wondering if I needed some help with it, would y'all be kind enough to help me with it?
You can see the shawl here:
Anyway, I am pleased to meet you all.
Happy Knitting! :XX: :XX:
