"stockinette" stitch--alternating rows of knitting and purling
As in: last night Lara, owner of In the Loop, taught me and 3 other beginners purling. The knit stitch and purl stitch work together to create the pattern of your knitted fabric.
My progress in knitting has been steady, and I should have something to show you soon. If you're interested in learning to knit, call Lara at In the Loop for details on upcoming classes.
