Purls, not Pearls

Okay guys, this week’s post about knitting is coming at you a little late, simply because I am trying to wrap my head about how to do the purl stitch.

I felt as though I was ready to move on from the knit stitch because I was able to get several rows done with it and felt rather confident in my ability to make it all work! The picture below is my progress with constantly doing the knit stitch! 

As you can see, I am able to keep my knit stitch going consecutively (with only a few holes!!) and I feel like I could begin to make products using this stitch.

For me learning the purl stitch, I have been using this link: How to do a purl stitch: knitting . For some reason, this stitch is not as straight forward for me to do as the knit stitch was. As I had said in my first post, I have terrible dexterity and fine motor skills, which makes this slightly more challenging for me (but hey, practice makes perfect). I plan on posting a video of me fumbling through the slightly different movements of the purl stitch very soon, so stay tuned!

After the purl stitch…the work on my infinity scarf begins! Yikes!

  1. I totally relate to the lack of fine motor skills. Whenever I try to do something delicate with my hands, I always seem to fumble it around or drop it! I think a lot practice with something like knitting is one of the few ways to improve these skills. Maybe I should take up knitting too!
