Namaskaram - salutations

Namaskaram - salutations I dedicate my blog to the enormous art lovers across the globe I love knitting so much that I have started a blog for knitting.Knitting is a job that I will like to go on.Through knitting I breathe life into many people's life. It is knitting time. When I want to relax I do it with knitting. I am a knitting buff.I love to do knitting on various topics. There is no way that you can stop me doing knitting.I am born with a flare for knitting.My face brightens once I touch the knitting needs.The electronic media has helped knitting to travel across the world.Every stitch made will talk about how knitting has influenced people.I have done some and would like to share it with you. Some patterns have been taken from free knitting sites. Some designs have been created by me. Many a times I have modified the patterns to suite my requirements. Finally I can say that I breathe knitting, I talk knitting, I walk knitting - a total knitaholic

Thank You

Holding the needles

Before starting the knitting project one must be able to hold the needles. You must practise how to get the grip of the needles and yarns. intially you might feel awkard to hold but later you will be able to manoeuvres.

1. Hold the right needle in the same position as a pencil.For casting on and working the first few rows.Feel the knitted pieces passes between the thumb and the index finger.As the knitting grows slide the thumb under the knitted piece holding the needle from below.

2.The left needle is held lightly over the top.
a. If the English method of knitting is preferred use the thumb and index finger to control the tip.
b. If the European method is used,control the tip with the thumb and middle finger.
