    I see you finally got the matress stitch right!

  2. Lené Rousseau says:

    I got 6/7. Knitting is basically a combination of plain and purl stiches, so to me what a certain combination is called, is a bonus. The pattern tells one exactly what to knit anyway. Happy knitting, girls!

  3. Syl says:

    I do not know the name of the stitches but I know how to follow instructions. I started knitting before youtube and tutorials. Even have done some lace shawls, lace blankets but I did not know that was lace etc, just followed the instructions.

      Wow, that’s excellent. If my mom were alive, she could say the same thing.
      Don’t stop !

    7/7 By Jove Mrs!! I am in shock , I always crochet ,being a lefty but bbout three years ago a friend persueded me to try continental style and I haven’t stopped knitting since, I just love it, at the grand old age of 78yrs.

  11. Heather White says:

    As I don’t knit often I was really pleased with my 5/7. I admit I haven’t been very adventurous with the stitches I’ve used in the past but have got a big itch to start more complex patterns than just variations of Moss stitch. Starting with cable stitch.

  12. Barbara Stine says:

    I was totally dumbfounded that I scored 7/7, sure about everything except 2 of them, so made a lucky guess. Learned how to knit at age 7 by my mom, knitted off and on thru my life, more on these last 10 or so years. Going to attempt a cable pattern for my beloved step-mom, never done before, but I have some knitting friends and we meet every Sat, I can get some good help there. Thank you for the fun interactive things you offer, especially the knitting tutorials, very helpful. Keep on knittin’ !!

  13. Barbara Stine says:

    p,s, – love knitting and being w/ like-minded friends, it’s therapy !
