Hi everyone. I am signed up to receive an invite to ravelry... yay!
I am on my 2nd baby blanket. Same pattern as the first, but smaller gauge and I am liking it a lot. I am finding a bunch of patterns I cannot wait to try! My problem is, when reading the pattern instructions, I may as well be reading Chinese. It makes no sense to me. My friend got my started on my blankets so I know exactly what I need to do because I physically watched her first. But sitting down with a brand new pattern and reading and understanding what it is actually telling me to do seems pretty difficult. So it says to triple stitch while standing on my head. Only good if I know what a triple stitch is to begin with (I made that up by the way LOL). So I am asking if anyone can recommend any good sites or books that have good pictures that will explain the various things I will be reading in my patterns so I will know what it means. I have a bunch of books coming from the library, but I think they are mostly just patterns. I do think I am getting a dummies or idiots guide too... but any suggestions would be appreciated.
