Sometimes when you are returning stitches to the needle (if you’re nervous or the yarn is slippery) get them on any which way – whether they are split, facing the wrong way, whatever. Then go back across the row and right the wrongs. You want to take out stitches as if to purl, meaning insert your right hand needle into the stitch as if your going to purl and pass it from one needle to the next. Make sense?
For Carol’s next knitting adventure, she is going to knit this sweater from Knitting Block by Block by Nicky Epstein. The sweater is knit entirely in blocks. We are both excited about it.
Mary Ellen finished her first Building Block square. Well done. The yarn is Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash (Worsted: 100% Merino, 219 yards).
She looked fabulous in her CustomFit sweater. I love seeing people where their finished knits with pride (and joy),
Trammi shared her progress on her Outline. I like the color-play between her yarns. There is a mixture of hand dyed and regular dyed yarns. The variegated yarn picks up the colors in the solids. She also finished the body of her Essence Pullover Sweater in Tahoe (Aran: 32% Nylon, 27% Wool, 25% Alpaca, 16% Yak, 179 yards). It was time to learn the twisted rib pattern for the bottom.
In the end we restored all the stitches to their proper places with a collective sigh of relief and we went on to knit another row.
