Today I've been looking at several of the you tube knitting videos and some are way better than others. I don't know or understand the continental knitting stitch and probably never will. Just don't go there. I got so confused on a circular knitting needle video my brain nearly shut down. There was another one where I finally figured it out. Last week sometime I bought some yarn that said to knit it on circular needles, cast on 106 stitches and knit 11 rows. Well, that sounded just wonderful so I rushed out and bought some of those needles. I started casting on and noticed that everything was all tangled up. I stopped and started again thinking that if I just kept my stuff straight it would all be good. It wasn't. I took them back.
This website has some good videos about how to knit and all the ins and outs. There is the most adorable hat pattern there that I must do. It will require my buying another set of circular needles. One weird thing about the circular ones is that they make a stockinette stitch! How cool is that!

The kid is back today, but not for knitting. She brought a movie....real high brow..."Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo". See ya'll later.
