So, there’s this blog I read occasionally: Knitting to Stay Sane. I like it. I think it’s well-written, and entertaining, and sometimes, I learn a thing or two.
I was amused by a recent post in which the writer discovers – much to her embarrassment while in a workshop – that she’s been doing yarn overs incorrectly for years.
“Uh-oh,” I thought, with a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach.
Was I doing it wrong all this time, too? After all, if someone whose knitting blog I respect can be doing her yarn overs wrong all this time, where does this leave me? I am a relatively inexperienced knitter, by comparison to many, many people out there. I’m mostly self-taught, and while good at most of the things I know how to do, I know I have a great deal to learn.
Welp, turns out I was doing yarn overs wrong all this time, too.
Thank you, Glenna C., for schooling me (and I’m sure many others) on yarn overs. Your pain is my gain. While I’m sorry you were embarassed, thank goodness you told the world about it, else I’d never have known!!!
Knitters, if you’re at all worried, please check out her post on the correct way to do a yarn over. I am eternally grateful to her for it, and it is well-documented and described.
