Okay, I tried twice to knit one of these, because I love the look of them, and they seem like they should be so easy. But I'm having trouble with a couple of things:
1) With the coiled one, how do you know which stitch to 'pick up' and knit with the one on the left needle? And how do you do it without cutting the circulation off in your finger? The tension is just so tight during that stitch.
2) I can't seem to stuff it at the very beginning. Should I wait until there's actually enough room to stuff stuffing into, or is there a trick to stuffing very small areas? I've tried using the needle to push in a bit of stuffing, but it comes up over the edge and/or gets pushed right through.
3) I want to do the striping, and I've finallly figured out how to add a second colour, but does anyone have tips for keeping the two colours separate?
Thanks!! I thought this would be easy but I'm having a simpler time with my cabling project...
why don't you try self stripping yarn instead?
lookin' good, shortstuff!
