Welcome

 Hi, It's time to pick up your needles and start to get itno the loop.

I had planned to video myself knitting, but it's already been done - soo many times.

I had a look around and the best I found on the web was from WikiHow.

(also check them out for how to crochet)


Knitting

Knitting is basically a row of loops around a needle.

Using another needle you pull another loop through the first.


There are 2 stitches a knit and a purl. 

You either pull the stitch forward for a knit or backwards for a purl. 


Have a look a a piece of knitted fabric, a jumper, t'shirt or a sweatshirt. 

Look carefully at one stitch, on one side of the stitch there is a V and on the other side a loop. 

If you turn around a knit you see a purl, if you turn around a purl you have a knit.

Since you turn your knitting at the end of each row to make a face of 'V's you need to knit one row and then purl a row. (1 row is pulled forwards and since the knitting has turned the next row is pulled back).You either pull the stitch forward for a knit or backwards for a purl. 


Everything else is mixing these 2 up to create different effects.
