Norwegian Purl

I spent part of today learning Cat B.’s continental purl, but found that having the stitches twisted was discouraging, because I couldn’t really tell which ones were purl and knit stitches when I was checking my work. They basically all looked like mistakes. She mentioned in the video to expect this, and gives a solution, but I decided to look into Norwegian purl, which she says is similar to her way. I looked around on YouTube, and found several where the instructor is absolutely flying through the work, and I couldn’ t follow what was going on. Cheryl Kemp’s instructions finally were clear enough for me to get it. Now I can purl continental, which I hadn’t been able to do so far.

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management. After work, I practice Aikido, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving, and I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday.
