Today I learned the importance of knowing how to pick up dropped stitches. I wish I would have learned this awhile ago! If you can't see my dropped stitches in the photo above then I did it right. I wouldn't have quite trying to learn to knit so many times in the past if I knew how to do this. So, if you are going to learn to knit, then it is a MUST that you first learn to read stitches, and then know how to pick up dropped stitches. There are many tutorials out there on the web, find them and happy crafting!
