1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: question about making bar increases on: August 15, 2012 08:37:35 AM
Thanks for the replies I really appreciate it!! Problem solved! I was actually wrapping the yarn instead of picking it after I went front to back. You wouldn't think that it would make much of a difference but it was huge.  I also must admit that I was using super crappy yarn for a beginner, I beieve its called Homespun, it consists of basically super fuzzy lint wrapped around a piece of string but the color is so pretty that I can't part with it lol.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / question about making bar increases on: August 14, 2012 10:35:14 AM
I am pretty new to knitting and i am already incredibly frustrated. I am trying to do bar increases, which I know are probably one of the easiest knitting techniques possible but it is driving me absolutely bonkers.  For some reason when I go through the back, wrap the yarn and try to go back through my yarn is so tight on my needles that I can't even move them.  I am a pretty loose knitter so I don't think its my tension. I have watched two Youtube videos on it and I think I am doing the technique properly but some thing just can't be right. Please Help!!

I am a new knitter and I need some tips. I was trying out stockinette and finished a row when I set down my work. When I came back to it I couldn't remember if I needed to knit or purl the next row. Is there a way to keep track or tell the difference between the two ?
