My friend asked me
I went knitting with my friend tonight. She’s pretty new to knitting, and asked me what the hardest thing in knitting is. That’s a tough question. All knitting is just one stitch at a time, and when it comes down to it, it’s not hard, it just might take practice, or a tip from another knitter to really get it. I finally had to say that while knitting lace used to seem the hardest to me, before I learned to really read my knitting, that I wouldn’t avoid any knitterly activity because it seems to difficult. I should have thought of sl2tog, k1, psso. (Slip 2 stitches together, knit 1, pass the slipped stitches over.) that always seems unnecessarily hard to me. So I don’t do it. I prefer sl1, k2tog, psso. (slip 1, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over.)
I keep thinking about this question though. Do you have an answer?
