Pattern Question

Hi everyone & happy holidays! I am trying to finish a hat as a present but am a little confused with the decrease stitch instructions. It is the Jacque Cousteau hat. Here are the directions:
"The decreases are KKS (Knit-knit-slip= knit two stitches and then slip the first of these two over the second"

Washington, DC

Hi Guys----
I will be in the DC area for the President's Day weekend. I am looking for some LYS that I can visit. Does anyone have any recommendations? Also if it fits your schedule, would like to meet for coffee. I'll be free Sunday evening and all day Monday.

A short row problem

Hi Guys,
I am doing 2 scarves at once, a reversible cable scarf and this new fangled scarf that spirals. I am having a problem understanding short rows. The pattern is all knit stitch (THANK THE KNITTING GODS) but I am not understanding how to read the pattern. The pattern reads as follows:

K20, turn, leave rem 5 sts unworked

Gansey Sweater

Has any one knitted a Gansey sweater. I was wanting to try one. I attended a Beth Brown-Reinsel workshop for mittens. Now I want to try a Gansey Sweater. Trying to get up the nerve to start after the holidays.

Alice Starmore's Book of Fair Isle Knitting - Great News!

Great news for Fair Isle enthusiasts! I just discovered that the old Starmore book has been reprinted and is now available. I'm happy about this but there is a certain sting remembering how much I paid for my then out-of-print copy!

I think this is the very best book on stranded colour work technique ever.

You can find it on amazon.com for only US$19.77!
