Learing new things

I’ve been knitting and crocheting since I was in my teens, my mom taught me.  I’ve always taken to crocheting more than knitting, knitting just seems so much more involved and hard at times.  Then I hurt my shoulder when we still lived in Illinois, and knitting really aggravated it, so I’ve stuck strictly to crocheting for many years now.  But I’ve always wanted to start knitting again.  I learned that continental knitting didn’t have as much arm/shoulder movements, so I tried to learn it, but just never could.  I watched YouTube videos, read about it, I just couldn’t get it so I stopped trying.

Then I was talking with a co-worker and her and I are both on Ravelry, which if you are on there, please add me as a friend.  But she does continental knitting and she reminded me there were groups on Ravelry that might help me learn.  So I looked up some groups and found a good group and started asking questions.  One of the ladies told me of a different video I hadn’t seen and I think I finally understand how to do continental knitting.  I haven’t started learning how to do a continental purl yet, but the ladies agreed that I should just practice the knitting first before trying something else.

I’m excited that I learned something new, and that I might even be able to start knitting again soon.  Right now, my work is pretty messy, but I hope to keep at it.  Only time will tell if it will hurt my shoulder or not.  I hope it doesn’t, once I relax a bit more. lol  🙂

  1. I love the challenge of learning new stitches! Cannot wait to see what you do with this. Love the needles. Currently I am waist deep in crochet….( working on an afghan ) trying to get it done for a Christmas gift.

  2. oh wow you will have to show me how to do that or send the link. I have never been able to. Thanks for sharing it. Love the Molly Green look. Talk soon on that. Love

  3. Crocheting has always been something I wanted to learn to do again–after my third grade teacher taught us to do Granny squares. But it seems I hardly have time these days to do anything new, and not much time to do what I already know how to do.
