hey i made some of these today the only problem i had was near the knee it looked like a weird little pocket thingy..like all the fabric got bunched up...did u have that problem too? haha and i made mine a little too tight! hahaha
i am really stupid when it comes to sewing so is there any way that you can post a step by step? ok so i understand that you wear them inside out and pin them up, then you just sew that up? ack i am so freakin confused
ok so i can basically sew...like super simple stuff. i just get really easily frustrated when i try to do something new and i cant! especially seeing all these crazy things you guys make! so is there any super basic tips you can share that will make sewing a little bit easier? any help is really appreciated!!!
thanx to all who have been helping me and giving me advice throughout the past couple of days! i finally think i have got the knit stich down! YAY. im starting to do a scarf...so hopefully that wokrs out, though i keep getting scared that i will drop a stich. ok anyways the videos on www.knittinghelp.com really helped al lot when i watched them like 44857395 times each! thanks guys.
ok so i am pretty sure that i have the cast-on part down. and i can transfer it to the other needle ( this is called knitting right?) but then when i switch needles i get confused! i dont know where to put my needle in. i also have no clue what the difference between knitting and purling is.i dont even hold the yarn wrapped around my finger! it feels so uncomfortable for me to do that. and dont even get me started on gauging, diff size needles, omg all i want to do is knit! ha i never imagined it would be this hard!!! i have read all the websites, i have the stich n bitch book, and i have a knitting book for kids! why oh why cant i get the hang of this? damn me for being a virgo and a perfectionist! any help is oh so greatly appreciated!
ok so i just randomly today started to try knitting! yay! ok so anyways...i picked up some red heart and canon (sp?) simply soft yarn, and some 8 knitting needles...(dont mind me if i am down on the lingo!) i statred doing the slipnot and then i started knitting...i got kind of discouraged and stopped for a while...i wanna know if there are any other items i NEED to have for knitting...i am going to walmart tom so any info is appreciated! thx
im trying to either learn how to knit or crochet. i bought both sets of needles and some yarn today and i just can't seem to get started! i bought 2 how-2 books and they both seem to be confusing me more! any help will be appreciated!
