I'm trying to teach myself to knit (I'm coming from a crochet background) and I have a couple of books, but sadly, not an experienced knitter at my side. I did a double cast on and proceeded to knit (English-style) but got stymied when I came to the initial slip knot. How do I treat it? Do I knit it or simply push it over to the right needle, and go forth and knit row 2 (I'm working on getting comfortable with the garter stitch)?
Either my books aren't telling me or I'm a wee dense due to the ungodly hour I arose at
Any help would be most appreciated. People here are an inspiration!
