what is 'pearling' about
Hello. I want to learn to knit. I bought two sets of needles, different sizes and some yarn. I printed directions online and also bought a book. I am still having a little trouble getting started. I always cast on fine, and do the first row of stitches. Then I don't know where to attach the subsequent rows and I get stuck. I don't udnerstand what it means to pearl and what the purpose is. If anyone could help me out, I would love to know. I will keep playing with my sewing machine until I can master knitting. Thanks for any advice.
