I have learned knitting when I was little. My mother
had showed me how to purl and knit.It was enough to make few scarves and pullovers. That
was it. I haven't knitted for years, precisely 30 years. Then I decided to knit
lacy scarf year ago, and realized that I can't follow the pattern. Initially I thought I am knitting wrong. My
mom taught me wrong. After some
reading I realized -I am not knitting wrong, I am just knitting differently.
That different way even has a name -Combined Knitting. But, if you want to knit
lace, or follow most written patterns, you have to make some adaptations. Well,
that is so complicated for me. Since I am not "serious" knitter it
is easier for me to learn "right" Continental western method. And I am
Continental western knitting
My stitches made with combined method are neater.It's very difficult to switch to Continental western
method. I have to practice a lot.
So, for my first pullover knitted continental I chose this
three-shades-green yarn. This yarn hides all mistakes.
