Last weekend I asked about which method is best for someone (me) who already knows how to crochet and is now learning to knit. I had initially been told that Continental would be easier for me as a crocheter. But you all told me whichever method is most comfortable, so I tried them both. Which I did. And the winner is.....
Continental after all!
I think I am actually getting quite good at the knit stitch. I hold the yarn the same way I do for crocheting. I just learned the purl stitch and while I can do it and my test piece actually looked pretty good, I still am VERY awkward at it and have to figure out how to do that better.
So thanks for all your help! I think I'm on my way!
P.S. I bought The Complete Beginners Guide to Knitting DVD by Nici McNally and that has helped me a lot. The videos here are great but I love to be able to sit on the couch and watch the DVD, pause and start when I need to. I think using both videos is really going to help me.
