Thumb trick question
For the first time I tried EZ's thumb trick (not in an EZ pattern -- it was the balaclava pattern from Homespun Handknits). From what I read in EZ's books about the thumb trick, it sounded super-easy to undo the waste yarn (just pull one end and zip! -- out it comes) when it's time to pick up the stitches around the hole. However, I found it difficult and time-consuming. I had to laboriously unpick each stitch individually. Is that normal, or did I do something wrong?
