hello, I am a total beginner when it comes to knitting. I ordered these socks because I was under the impression that this was easy. I do not know how to use 3 needles and the W...abbreviation for a stitich, I have no clue, do you have any suggestions on where I can start to learn how to knit? thanks so much, I so want to learn how to knit socks.
Please, some of us aren't so clever! What do you mean by "Continue in this manner until all the side stitches are consumed" (Turn heel)?
There is an excellent group on Facebook that is titled "addicted to sock knitting" this is a wonderful group that always provides and help you need. 2 other main reference sites I use are YouTube and www.knittinghelp.comKnittinghelp.com has superb explanations and quick videos of EVERY stitch you could need to knit. I can reply back from my computer with the YouTube video that helped me figure out the picking up of the gusset stitches.sock knitting can seem so overwhelming at first but I promise you that you will figure it out and love it! Stay positive. :-)
