Hello everyone! I am new to the site, and to knitting. I started knitting about 2 weeks ago. So far I have learned the very basics (cast-on, knit, purl, bind-off) and have completed one project (a simple little wash cloth).
Now I'm doing another wash cloth of the same pattern, but trying Continental style instead. I found knitting the first one frustrating because I had a severe tendency to knit way too tightly. This time I'm having the opposite problem; the knit seems way too loose and I can't get enough tension in the yarn when my left hand fingers are flying every which way doing the stitches. And knittinghelp.com makes it look so easy...
Well, I have a ladyfriend coming over soon and hopefully she can give me a few pointers since she's knitted that way since she was a wee lassie.
Anyway, nice to meet you all!
