The first rule of holes: when you're in one, stop digging.

- Molly Ivins


Knitting Backwards

Instead of switching needles back and forth, try knitting backwards (also handy when doing entrelac):

With yarn in back, insert left needle, purlwise (with tips facing), into back of stitch, wrap yarn around left needle up around back and down around front, lead wrapped yarn through stitch and off of right needle. Backwards purl stitch: With yarn in front, insert left needle, knitwise (with tips parallel) into back of stitch, wrap yarn around left needle up around back and down around front, lead wrapped yarn through stitch and off of right needle.
