As i jump around in my work....i usually have a couple projects going at once... Today i want to share a great little video on how to start knitting shawls. The one thing that has always kept me from knitting them is that triangular start where the pattern says "turn 90 degrees and pick up stitches"...What the heck does that mean? So...i Googled it.
Google tells me it's called the garter stitch cast on method. It forms the point in the triangular shawl. i found this great little video that demonstrates it. He makes it look so easy!
