1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / mystery twists? on: August 01, 2005 06:13:24 PM
Oh wise and all-knowing Craftsterettes, please can you help me?

I have a problem with stocking stitch (and yeah, if you've got a problem with stocking stitch you might as well throw the whole thing at the wall and pick up your trusty crochet hook).  I would swear, swear, that I'm doing both knit & purl stitches exactly as a harmony guide, stitch n bitch and Maggie Righetti would tell me to.  And I'll go along fine for a good long time.  But then all of a sudden I'll finish a purl row & the stitches are all presented to me twisted so that I have to knit in the back of the stitch to get them to lie straight.  What could I be doing wrong?  I guess the most obvious answer is that I'm mucking up my purling somehow, but I really can't see how.

Worst of all, this appears to be like a knitter's version of the yips: once the first twisted row shows up, it's quickly followed by others.

I've been a craftster lurker & fan for some time now, but just had to join up to show you this little fella, made for my boyfriend:

slight problem - he doesn't have a name.  What do you reckon?
