    I am glad that I only live this life once. It would be tedious in the extreme to think I might have to live it again!

    *You could live it in a different way, the next time. One small change made early on in life, could change so much.*

    Merry Christmas, Olds, hope you have a lovely time :)

    Look forward with hope to the return of the light.:D

    And the same to you olds. (In reality I'm just hoping we come out the other side still smiling.)

    I found the University of Life offers courses that are more valuable than any Oxford can invent, and equipped with the knowledge I learned there, would have no qualms about returning for another life.

    Might this be an opportune moment to ask what the difference between the two are?

    It's to do with the direction the mobile needle picks up a stitch from the stationary needle and the direction in which the wool is wound round to create the new stitch.

    :oops: Just realised you might have been asking that question of someone in particular, DoY, if so I'm sure they'll do a better job of explaining

    OK. What advantage does knit one purl one have over knit one, knit another? Why isn't knitting called purling instead? Or is it sometimes?
  16. kibosh

    Depending on how it's done (by row or by a certain number of stitches within a row) it creates a texture or pattern within the garment
    Don't know . . . I'm assuming because the simpler stitch (knit one) came first, historically. I'm not aware of knitting being called purling . . .but that's not say it isn't by some.

    Where's Mrs Olds when you need her? ;)

    Unless of course you do it the continental way, where the wool is not wound round but 'looped and pulled through'. Definitely quicker as I found out when comparing it to m-i-l who knitted the 'English' way you describe. ;)

    In a couple of year time one of us will be teaching a perpetually grumpy child and we'll know reincarnation exists... ;)

    [grumpy because you are living it again, not because you are grumpy... that's GDW]
