Mistake #8 - Letting Stitches Lag On Your Left-Hand Needle

Problem: Not advancing the stitches on your left-hand needle makes you work harder and harder to get into those stitches. Yet many people do it, because they are afraid their stitches will pop off if they get too close to the edge.

Fix: Get in the habit of pushing the stitches up onto the tip of your left-hand needle as you knit. Also see the video for Tip #6, Using Your Fingers To Help You (coming up in a few weeks), to solve this problem.

Please remember to comment if you have any questions or if there's a video you'd like to see. Stay tuned for Tip #7 - Not Using the Right Tools for the Job!
