I’m continuing work on my unfinished mittens (I actually started over so I could really do it right.  I was kind of just making it up as I was going).  And so I’m following directions now (for once!) on this training mitten pattern, and came to the direction “Increase 1 after the 6 and 18 stitch.”  WHA?  Yeah.  I don’t know how to do that.  Well, NOW I do!  Thanks to happening on to:

They have amazingly clear how-to videos for everything from casting on, adding stitches, subtracting stitches and learning different knitting styles.  For instance, my Mum taught me the Throw/American Method which is what I’ve done for years and been just fine with.  But there are other methods too, like the German Method/Left-Handed Knitting or Combined Knitting, or BACKWARDS Knitting!  German Method is actually easier than I thought, and I just followed the videos and WOW!  I know a new method of knitting.  YAY!

This is all well and good because I just purchased this beautiful sweater pattern on Etsy!

OH MY!  It’s so cute but I’m sure I wouldn’t know all the directions.  SO glad I found this website because I know it will help me along the way.  Yipppeeeeee!

Happy Knitting!
