Knitting Tips

Catherine tells us that part of creating gauge is where on the knitting needle you work your stitches.

  1. I truly appreciate the tip in the July 2016 podcast about where on the knitting needle you work your stitches. I was in the middle of a project while listening to this, and I immediately realized I was working too near to the tips. I have such a tight tension that I have actually broken two of my acrylic needles! Maybe this will help. It appeared to make an immediate difference (albeit subtle) when I moved my stitches down about 2/3 of an inch or so. Thanks!
