K2TOG, TBL will be my Waterloo
One day, I envision a world where I will not be constantly asking for help, but I will be able to answer knitting questions for someone else...
I am having some serious problems with a K2TOG TBL. I've watched the video for just knitting one and it seems pretty straightforward. But, I'm obviously missing some vital part of the process..
I went to do the stitch (the K2TOG, TBL, well, and also K3TOG, TBL [i tried the latter first and then the former, thinking it may be easier..]) and it was so tight that it took me a good three minutes to get my right needle through the back of the stitches. When I went to knit the stitch, it again was so tight that as I was fighting it, I broke my yarn (grrr!). If I do anything that I think seems right, the resulting stitch on my right needle isn't flexible, doesn't move, and it just sort of sits there looking ugly & makes me grumpier.
I know this description is pretty vague of what's happening, but surely someone can maybe give me an idea of why this stitch makes me want to exile my knitting onto a deserted island?
