The Tip Jar

Do you find yourself with holes in your knitting because you accidentally went the wrong way (especially knitting in the round)? Here's how to stop that happening: Whenever you pick up your work, use the yarn to find the last stitch that was knitted/purled. That stitch goes in your right hand and the first stitch on the other needle is the stitch you want to work next.
