Hi...time for another question re harrison vest pattern...
I am at the section where I am shaping the shoulders, and I keep ending up
with six 'extra' stitches when i am completing the first side, reversing
Here is what it says:
(parenthesis my comments)
Starting a vest (Rowan Harrison vest). Already stumped...grrr...it says:
"beg with a K row work in st st. shaping sides by inc 1 st at each end of 15th row, then on 3 foll 14th rows."
Does this mean at the 15th knit row I increase by one at the beginning of the row and end of the row then for every 14th row I do the same thing three times more?
I had some left over yarn from the Christmas stockings I made recently and ran across this pattern. Double knitting? Why not? LOL OMG I had to frog this 4-5 times before I got the hang of it! I am now making one in cranberry and oatmeal...then packing them both away in all the Christmas stuff for next year.
Haven't checked in for awhile, but that doesn't mean I haven't been knitting! I just finished a Christmas stocking for the husband and a couple of pairs of socks for myself. The light grey socks have a spiraling pattern from contrasting knit/purl stitches - can't see it in the photo too well, but I am happy with the results.
I am knitting Spiraling Square Socks by Jenny Blackburn (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spiralling-square-socks) and am a bit stumped on the heel set up. The directions say:
K7, turn your work so that the wrong side is facing, P34
(Note: Knitting 7 before turning and purling 34 lines it up for the top of foot pattern later.)

I just finished a pair of socks using a very beautiful red/purple/blue yarn that was dyed by my LYS. Past experience with their yarn when washing is that the darker colors bleed and darken the lighter colors. I don't want this to happen to these socks b/c the red is so vibrant.
I remember reading somewhere that you could add salt to the wash water to stop color bleeding.
So I am a thrower (english) and in-between projects. I'm thinking of trying continental for my next (simple!) project, and was wondering how did the switch go for any of you out there? I have given it a half-hearted attempt a couple of times, get frustrated and go back to throwing....but have heard picking is much faster which I would like to be!!
Here is my first attempt at knitting fair isle. I designed the color pattern myself from a hat pattern used at a class taken at my LYS, Piedmont Yarn. I chose to end it with three-points and bound off using the three needle method (so cool). I love the way it came out - and my niece is going to love it!
here is a pic of the hat (finally) that I was having so much trouble doing the decreases. It came out just as it should...trust the pattern...
