Knitting and Crochet Tips

A while back, a woman asked about how to knit or crochet. Here is what you do:

You make a loop with your yarn and place it on your knitting needle, that will be your lead needle. If your start with your right, it will be your right lead. If you're a lefty, it's your left lead. Then you just start making loops by pulling through that first loop by using the second knitting to help the loop come through. After that, you would slide loops off the needle as you are pulling through the loop you are sliding off with the knitting needle. The loops that are going though loops that are sliding off will be on the second needle that, in turn, will also become the lead needle when it get through with the number of knitting stitches you want. As for crochet, it's just pulling loops with one crochet needle and turning the yarn around and pulling loop through the crocheted loops, that's all.

One simple thing to remember. You are using two hands to knit with knitting needles and you are using one for crochet. There are a lot of sites too that you can find on the internet for certain pattern stitches and stuff for both. Also there is a new way to knit with looms too and all that is wrapping around the stick or fork, stubs if you want to call them, with yarn and after wrapping twice for the start of it where you can pull one loop over another.

I hope others that want to learn can get this. If it's not clear enough, let me know.
