I have learned so much here with the videos and forums. I have come to love knitting in just the last month of so -- I am a beginner.
I have been working on a scarf that is long and a K3P3 rib. Last night I was working on it and knitting in the 3rd of 4 colors, about 70% done with the entire thing when I realized, about 5 rows later, that I had knit 2 rows the same -- it looked awful and had to be fixed, but I really didn't know what to do, or if I even wanted to attempt to fix it
But I knew I needed to try and it is a gift, so it can't have this ugly mistake in it, so I pulled out my trusty books and looked for the solution. Like I said, I am new to knitting and wasn't sure what to do. I realized that what I had to do was insert a needle into the row before the mistake and unravel it to there and start over. I was SO SCARED!
My DH was sitting there and giving me moral support that I could do it.
So I inserted the needle and unraveled and it worked perfectly! I did the same thing as this video
on here. It worked!
This may not seem like a big deal to many of you, but to me it was and gave me the confidence that I can do more with my knitting
The other day at my LYS I bought double pointed needles to attempt some socks and a circular needle to attempt knitting in the round hats for my girls -- I have the confidence that I can do them now
I just wanted to share!
