I love to knit, crochet and do other crafts.  I don't usually have a problem reading directions and creating the item.  Sometimes I can just look at it and figure it out.  However, I've come across a new technique that has me stumped!  It's called "Sashay".  It sounds and looks simple but I just can't grasp the concept.  Anyone ever worked with this material?  I've read and re-read the instructions.  I've watched instructional videos.  Still it just doesn't make sense to me. HELP!

ONE TEST, MANY INTERPRETATIONS...Your thyroid gland plays a crucial role in regulating just about everything, including your heart rate, metabolism, muscles and mood. If your thyroid is underactive (hypothyroidism), it’s not making enough thyroid hormone, so your body starts pumping out extra thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which makes your TSH levels high. Insufficient amounts of thyroid hormone can cause symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, chills, and dry skin, hair and nails. On the other hand, when your thyroid is making too much thyroid hormone, you’ve got an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), which causes weight loss, insomnia and anxiety.
