I have a new newsgroup where people can learn knitting and crocheting basic. If there something I don't know I will hunt it and place it on the group for you to grap and save. Regular talk besides knitting and crocheting is welcome also.Its for all ages. But be warn any cussing or any spamming or any type of porn will be reported to the FBI or spam cops. No body needs that type of behavior.

Lazy cast-on for faster knitting.

If you guy didn't feel like doing a regular cast-on for knitting but wanting the cast-on to be knit looking, well here is one way to do that. Take the yarn and sort of fold or twist it a little between your thumb and finger and place the now made loop on the knitting needle. Keep doing this until you feel you have exact number of loops you want on it. Then start knitting away. Its great when you can do fast things and not tell anyone you did the cast-on the lazy way unless they caught you doing that.

Knitting Both Ways Without Turning.

It real easy to do. Just go the other way with your left or right hand that you have use to push the loops along. The both way method of knittng also seen to make the rows a little neater also. Best way is to garter stitch to get use to the feel of it. When knit-you have the yarn in back and when you go the other way you would purl-you have the yarn in front. I hope that explain how to do the Knitting both way method. Have fun.

Knitting Lesson and tips.

To do a cast on there are many way to do it tie a loop and then use that loop on the knitting needle to make more loops by pull them through the loop with the other needle and placing back on the main hand needle. Another is just twist the yarn into a loop and placing them on the needle. After that just start pulling through the loops and letting them stay on the other needle. That is knitting.

Knitting Tips:

Use ziplock bags to keep your yarn from rowing off on the floor. Also you can use empty bags that has zippers as bags to hold your yarn in too.
To untangle the yarn is easy. Just do like you do with knots. just follow the lead string and pull the middle of them out.
