ha i love them!!! I have been trying to get my bf to knit( he cant stand string and yarn) so congrats. i love when ppl break the deffinition of what it is to be male or female! not to mention great colors!!

I paint these little pictures with a temporary poison. each one just like the other. i wonder why i even bother.

Wonderful job! It's good to see boys knitting.

(Gah, all the boy friend is good for is winding skeins of yarn into balls.)

I love it that the craftster girls go crazy when a crafty boy posts something  Cheesy.  Maybe its cold enough to wear them now, up in Dallas its been in the 20s-40s this past week (yes!!!).

 Cheesy. my boyfriend is excellent at that, too. although he's starting to get the hang of the purl stitch, i think.  Smiley

the scarves look great! you did a fantastic job!

but u definitely have twisted stitches. watch some videos on knittinghelp.com. im sure you will figure it out. its just a small change in the way you position your needles.

try knitting stockinette: knit on one side, purl on the other, repeat. you will see that it does not look like this:

here are twisted stitches:

i tried out ur dot stitch (i think its dot stitch because of the purl bump dots in a background of stockinette stitch) and here it is:

here is picture of how the needles are positioned for twisted knit:

you can see that the right needle goes into the loop through the back

here is a picture of how the needles are positioned for regular knit:

the right needle goes into the loop through the front

i hope this helps!!
this person had a similar problem but she fixed it! look at her lovely stockinette in her second post =)

You probably won't get this as it's been over a year since you've logged in here, but now that you have more experience, do you understand what some people meant when they posted that your stitches looked twisted for the yellow scarf?
