I nac tink sdrawkcab!!!! (dnA lrup, oot!!)

I was chatting among some knitty friends last night, when someone mentioned knitting backwards. SpinnDiva  came through again, with a cool link to Nimrodel70’s site. There are some neat, intuitive ‘instructions’ on how to learn to knit backwards.  While I couldnt readily think of a reason for needing to purl backwards, I figured I might as well learn that too. So I did. ThankQ Monkee and Nim!

I do know, that backwards knitting  will definitely come in handy when swatching for something that will be knit in the round. Tubey comes to mind, and hopefully will work out.  Look out for swatch pics! TTFN
