I'm learning to knit! And I'm having more success this time! I think the key for me this time was trying the Continental Method as opposed to the American/English Method... I finally pulled out The Absolute Best Way to Learn How to Knit with Leslye Solomon dvd that I bought from this nice little local yarn shop when I was living in California. The owner was so nice and helpful and told me that a lot of crocheters have an easier time knitting Continental because they can hold the yarn in their left hand and primarily move their right hand, just like in crochet (unless you are a left handed crocheter). She's so right! I haven't moved passed the knit stitch yet, as I want to make sure I really have it down before moving on to purling, but so far this dvd is great!
For those of you who can crochet and knit, which method do you use to knit? Did you learn to crochet or knit first? Do you prefer one over the other?
