thank you alexus that did help a bit but what i am confused about is where to continue the pattern . Am i slipping a stitch and then knitting 1 or am i slipping a stitch and then knitting all the way across.
i think part of the problem was that i somehow equated slipping a stitch to dropping a stitch. silly late night brain. Anyway when you are slipping a stitch it is just being transferred to the other needle . so would it be essentially slip stitch to next needle . knit 1. slip a stitch to the next needle. knit 1. till the last stitch?
im learning to knit and i am working on my very first pair of socks and following the Patons Next step four socks and slippers basic sock pattern for yarn weight super fine. The problem i have encountered is that im starting on the heel of the sock and the pattern is a bit confusing. It says *SL1P.K1. Rep from * to last st. K1. This confuses me. does it mean that i slip a pearl stitch and then knit 1 and then slip another pearl stitch and then knit 1 intill the end of the row where i knit a extra stitch. Or does it mean slip one and then knit till the end of the row .
i really want to do this right because if i screw up i haven't learnt to pull out the stitches properly and then end up frogging the whole work. I don't want to do that the 5th time.\
i looked at this swap and wanted to participate. But i need to think about it a bit. It is a really large commitment and i don't want to overwhelm myself. but i know i will be stalking the gallery if i can't
