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

Making a slip knot

A slip knot is the starting point for everything that you do in knitting. It is the basis of all casting on techniques

1. Wind the yarn twice around the first two fingers of the left hand[ref fig 1 sk].Then bend the fingers so that the two loops are visible across the knuckles.
2. Using a knitting needle in the right hand, pull back thread through the front one to form a loop.

3. Release the yarn from the fingers and pull the two ends to tighten the loop on the needle.This forms the first stitch.
