Anyway, onward! As a little addendum to this tutorial on a provisional crocheted cast-on to knitting needle, here's what I do when I pick up the stitches. I had a few questions about it!
I begin by picking out the end of the crochet chain and unravelling the extra stitches, right up to the first stitch in the working yarn.
Then I begin carefully picking up the live stitches one at a time as I unravel the chain.
This is particularly important when you are using a slippery yarn or a really grabby one, like kidsilk haze.
It is time consuming, yes, but no stitches are dropped!
In other news, well, we're all working our hoo-hahs off over here. I haven't been able to do any recreational knitting (or crocheting) at all, so there's nothing to show! But I will say one thing: #1 Son's online school program is completely amazing. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in home-schooling. Wow.
Be well, everyone!
