Hello all, I have been knitting for 55+ years, basically figuring it out on my own. In the past 2 years I have been studying techniques online. Wow! There are so many ways to make my knitting better. I just read Clara Parkes' Knitters Book of Yarn. Now I can begin to understand why some of my creations didn't really turn out. Parkes recommended Knitter's Review - and - here I am. Most of all, I need to learn beginning and ending and finishing techniques. Basically I can knit almost everything from fair-isle to lace to intricate cables and knots. It's the edges that are problematic. Example: I spent almost 50 years doing only long-tail continental cast-ons. Blah blah blah. I feel like Dorothy having landed in Oz. I hope to make new friends and keep on learning.
