Looks like I'm the newest newbie. ha ha.
I really don't like my beginners knitting book. It isn't detailed enough. In fact I purled a whole dog sweater (just a square and two rectangles sewed together btw came out REALLY neat) and after I was done with the sweater I tried to learn something else in the book and couldn't figure it out so I went to youtube and found out I wasn't even casting on or knitting correctly. I thought I WAS knitting. I looked at the book after the video and the photo made more sense. ugh. Most of the time when I read instructions online I can understand it more than the book. I am a more visual person anyways.
Anyhoo, I'm hoping someone can show me how to do stockinette by video. I am doing EXACTLY what the directions say to do but it looks nothing like it's supposed to. I'm so confused.
Also, I don't know if this matters or not but I don't know the difference between the front and back (example: bring yarn to front). I don't know if this is the problem or not.
Photo 1: the correct objective
Photo 2: my millionth try to complete objective correctly. looks nothing like its supposed to
PLEASE HELP. I'm about to pull my hair out !!! ha ha.
P.S. If a video cannot be produced, I can make a video of what I'm doing and maybe you can tell me what I'm doing wrong. I thought it was pretty simple. Knit one row, purl next row, and repeat.
This smiley is me but I'm crying and not laughing. LOL.
