Knitting is a bit more difficult for me than crochet. I learned to crochet when I was 8 or so. I just learned to knit and purl within the past 18 months or so. I always get the garter stitch and stockinette stitch mixed up.
I am a visual learner, so I googled garter and stockinette. I found another blog called "a year in stitches", that has pictures of all the swatches she created from a pattern book. LOVE IT! There are a lot of stitches I'd like to try once I get better.
