Knitting and knots

Taking out my knitting is a real ice breaker in a waiting room. The couple sitting opposite us asked about it, I showed what happened at the end of each row, we chatted about using YouTube to find out how to cast off.

Then we chatted about knots, sailing ones, how they are of two sorts: the type which get tighter when the line is pulled and the type which are easy to loosen quickly.


  1. I am just learning to knit and casting off has been my sticking point. Are the youtube vids for that easy to follow? I have written instructions, but they might as well be in latin lol.

  2. I googled 'YouTube casting off' then chose to watch one which happened to have been done by the Good Housekeeping Institute. Good luck. It is so easy once you know how, and so obvious....I have great respect for whoever invented knitting.
