Interweave knitting is also known as Afghan stitches or Tunisian Crochet. It is a way of crocheting using one hook and adapted knitting techniques. The finished fabric you cre…ate looks as if it has been knitted, but in fact has been crocheted. There are many stitches and patterns to bring about very unique fabrics.
SSK stands for slip, slip, knit: Slip one stitch, then slip the next. Insert left needle into the front loops of the slipped stitches and knit them both through the back loops…. This stitch is used to decrease the number of stitches in a row with a leftward lean. The mirror image of a SSK decrease is the K2TOG decrease which leans toward the right. Pairing decreases on either side of a decrease line makes attractive shaping in garments.

It is more portable, requires less equipment, and produces stretchier fabric than weaving.
This is a form of knitting using a knitting device called a knitting nanny's. (In Germany they're called Niles) It is a hand held tool called a laced. The yarn is wound around… the prongs on the lust, in a pattern that forms the stitches. For pictures and instructions see The Lost Art of Knitting Nuances below. I believe it is related to the new craze of the "NAFTA Knitter".

K2 is simply knitting for two separate stitches. this is different from K2tog which means knit two together, where you treat the next two stitches as though they are one.
There is no way to knit with only one needle. To knit, you need two needles, one to hold the existing stitches and the other to pull new stitches through the old ones to make …a new row. If you see someone working with a single tool, it probably has a crook on the end and is called a crochet hook. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ That is a lie. I've done a complete poncho with one single needle.

Because you can make things, pretty much anything can be made out of two needles and some yarn, though sometimes you need more needles. Also, once you are comfortable with th…e process, knitting can be relaxing. It can help while away the time when waiting for an appointment or on a long trip. Some knit on the subway, in a train or plane, while watching television. If you need a gift in a hurry, you can whip something up which is handmade especially for the recipient.
Purling is a very common stitch in knitting. When looking at a piece of knitted fabric, the purl stitch is actually the reverse side of the knit stitch. In order to perform …a purl stitch, begin with stitches on the left hand needle. Make sure that the yarn strand you are knitting with is at the front of the needles (the side facing you). Insert the tip of the right-hand needle downward into the front of the stitch closest to the tip of the left-hand needle. Take the strand of working yarn and wrap it up and over the tip of the right-hand needle, so that it is between the needles. Using the tip of the right-hand needle, pull the strand of working yarn that was pulled between the needles through the stitch, making a single loop on the right-hand needle. Pull the stitch on the left-hand needle that was just worked on off of the needles completely. Repeat this process on the next stitch, and so on. This is how purling is done, but in order to better understand the instructions, take a look at some videos: Videos are best to learn, look at youtube or the knittinghelp website linked below. Well, it's just like normal knitting but in reverse. You hold the cast on stitches on the needle in your left hand and the working wool and empty needle in your right hand, then you insert the needle into the first stitch, but this is done backwards, you go through the top, instead of from underneath, so you should hold both needles in an X shape with the right in front of the left, and the working wool in front of both. You then lift the working wool in between the two needles, wrapping it around the right needle. Then bring the right needle to the back, slipping it in between the original stitch and then slip the stitch of the left needle. You should now have one new stitch on the right needle. Repeat this for the rest of the row.
