As the holidays loom, I am noticing more and more how many little tips, tricks and bits of knitting magic I have discovered over the years that make my knitting so much easier. Some of them are things that are my own little quirks; others are things that friends shared that once spoken seemed so obvious.
Thought it would be nice to have a place to share them.
I’ll kick it off! I always had to look up how to do M1R and M1L. I could never remember which one picked up from the front of the bar and which one picked up from the back of the bar. I jotted it down one day and Voila! For M1R pick up from the back because the R and the B(ack) both have the same top loop. For M1L pick up from the front because the L and the F(ront) are all straight lines. Total game changer for me.
