Ok, I have picked up my first pair of knitting needles in, oh, 17 years...and I still cannot cast on stitches for the life of me. I seriously used to have my mother do it for me, I could not figure it out.Now I sit in the middle of multiple piles of clearance fun yarns, attempting to make some cheap Christmas gifts of scarves, and I am struggling with the basic casting on of stitches. Can someone point me to a really good, detailed website showing how to do this? I've tried the Lion Brand yarn site and it's not so helpful...maybe a video of someone doing this in close-up?? Thanks!!!StB.
http://www.knittinghelp.com/ Try this sight, it has lots of videos for basics like casting on and also other esoteric things like ssk.Good luck.
I came over here late (I was hanging at Yarn Addicts Board) and saw this. I agree with Axia. Kniting help is one of my favorite sites when I have a mind block. I also like this site:http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/FEATsum05TT.htmlHGTV also has some useful information and although it pains me to admit it the idiots guide to knitting and crochet, at libraries, helped me when I couldn't make sense of the videos.Fluff
Oh - one more site:http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/instructions.phpFluff
