Tuesday, October 17, 2006

Hi everyone, thanks for letting me join. This is my very first KAL. It's going to be fun for me to knit along with other knitters across the globe. I can't wait to get my KSH. I'm so excited to get started.

i sorta feel like i'm talking to myself, but...

that's ok. hehe...

i'm almost done! i decided to do straps that would tie at the shoulders, since a lot of people complained of stretching. we'll see how that works out. i've finished all but one of those straps!

when i get home tonight, i'm going to block butterfly like crazy. i'll be working on the picot edging tomorrow'll will be done. good thing, too, since i want to wear it on saturday. eek!

no pictures, unfortunately. it's really hard to take decent pictures when i'm at work when the sun is out. boo. i need to schedule picture-taking time over the weekends, i think.

updated with a picture. yay for blocking!

row #3 on body (small)

hi, everyone. i noticed in one of the other comments from this blog that, for row 1, i should the knit the first two stitches (instead of k2tog and then knitting one) and knit the last two stitches (instead of doing a k and then a ktbl). i'm also planning on doing this for row 9.

however, i'm confused about how to handle row 3. i'm knitting it in the round, but can't start and end each side with a yarn forward as the pattern calls for. could i just do this...?
first two stitches: change from yarn forward, dec 2 to k, k2tog
last two stitches: change from dec 2, yarn forward to ktbl, k

as for row 5, i'm at a loss. has anyone else who made the small size made changes to that row? it also starts and ends with a yarn forward.

eta: i went ahead and did what i wrote above on row #3, but i'm still lost on row #5. any thoughts?

eta: i figured out something for row 5. good times. i'll post my notes for this sorry excuse for a chart once i'm finished.
