Soooo...

I'm a part of that Sexy Knitters Club.  And I pounced on the pattern when they decided to do Wicked this time around.  It's got the perfect neckline, and I HAVE the yarn already, which makes me uberhappy.

I dove in like a madwoman, finishing the neckline twisted rib and starting on the sleeve decreases.  I worked on it most of the night, watching reruns of Northern Exposure and knitting my little fingers to the bone.

Remember that part of every pattern that's worked in the round that says, "Join, making sure not to twist."?

Evidently, I ignored that part.  I woke up the next morning and noticed something just wasn't quite right....

Sure 'nuff.  I was making a Moebius Wicked.

*facepalm*

Good luck with that.  =D

Oh no!  I'm always SO afraid of twisting my stitches that I check and recheck myself several times before I'll move on.  Roll Eyes

Gr. I hate when that happens. I started a shawl with a intricate lace pattern and about 200 stitches long only to find out 10 rows later that it was twisted (and I wasn't supposed to join). Let's just say I have 4 balls of brown yarn waiting to be knit...

Remarkably, I've only done that once (and after 8 hats and three pairs of socks, that's pretty darn good...)

I think it might have to do with the way I've started to CO but I'm also a fan of DPNs, which I think make it a little harder to bollux up the join than circs.

(It's hard to explain, but I'm sure I'm not alone in this.. Instead of casting on ALL OF THE STITCHES on one needle, I cast on to seperate needles as I go.. so i'll cast on say, 14 to the first, then hold the second slightly behind the first and start to CO there, drop the first, continue as needed. The only downside I've found is that it makes the first round a little loose, but heck, they're socks.)
