Knit Success

I know this looks just like the pictures you've seen before, but I swear it's a new one! I finally had success with knits!
Turns out the problem with the jumped stitches was being caused by me sewing too fast. Go figure. I knew I was a lead foot, but I didn't realize it was an issue until I watched this video by Patty Young of ModKid boutique. It contains a lot of the information that is in the Sew Mama Sew link I posted before. But if you are a visual person (like I apparently am), this will be helpful too.
Here's a close up of my sleeve hem.

YAY! I'm not afraid of knits anymore! Actually, so much that I hemmed a pair of pajama pants for my daughter.
Very excited about this and looking forward to doing more soft and cuddly knit clothing! If you are considering working with knits - do it! It's not that hard and so nice to work with.
