As a new knitter, I'm really enjoying the "aha" moments while learning new things.
For example, I really thought that seaming up a sweater from the outside was a dumb idea until I followed the directions for the mattress stitch, pulled it tight, and voila, invisible seam. AHA!
And just last night, while working on my first sock. I turned the heel AHA!and started shaping the gusset. AHA!
My husband doesn't get it, so I just had to come here.
