VERY interesting!

1.Where do you live? Illinois (used to live in Hong Kong)
2.What style do you prefer? English
3.Who taught you how to knit? (do you know their lineage?) My granmother of Chinese heritage taught me how to knit, I'm not too familiar with knitting history in Hong Kong but it used to be ruled by the British, perhaps that's where the English style came not (not sure). I used to carry a British passport lol.
4. Have you tried, successfully or not, to change styles throughout your knitting life? If yes, why?
I was watching Knitty Gritty... and the lady was knitting on her left, I tried it.. Didn't like it lol I was sooo slow and all the stitches were backwards the next row.

Thanks chrispykreme! I took your recommendation and used a bigger needle (size 10) I'm about 5 repeats into it and this is definitely looking better, the sides are curling in but I'll block it when I'm done and hope that it stays straight for me lol.

andean treasure isn't too hazy, in my opinion. maybe it's the size of needle you are using. i used two sizes larger than recommended for the yarn that i used.

blocking should help because it can stretch and hold how you want it to look. i made two with Shine from knitpicks and they looked so much better after blocking...and that's just cotton.

stick with it. i am sure it will look awesome.

I started the scarf last night, completed 2 repeats but I can't see the lacey design clearly.. Do you think it's the yarn I'm using? I'm using Andean Treasure from Knit Picks, wbtw is the SOFTEST yarn I have ever felt. oooh sooo nice!

Any suggestion? do I need to block it after? I'm a newbie knitter so I haven't blocked anything, what are the procedures to do it? the yarn is 100% alpaca, is there a different step for it so it doesn't shrink?
