Hi rescuewife!  Don't panic!  I had to start the project twice and i am a confident knitter!!  I was losing stitches all over the place in my first go.  I hope i can answer your questions....
When it says to k1 p1 into the double yarn overs, does that mean I knit and purl the same stitch before I slip it off the left needle?
When you have wrapped the yarn twice around the needle in "yo twice" or however it is shown (i don't have the pattern in front of me).  You get two loops on the needle, in effect, two new stitches!  Therefore, you knit (k1) into the first "loop" and purl (p1) into the second loop on your left needle.  However, depending on how tightly you knit, it may seem that the yarn overs have disappeared when you come around to a actually knitting into them.  It may mean you need to do the yarn over more loosely when you initially create them.

Thanks for the offer to post the yarn to me!!  That is so kind.  however, panic over, the yarn has just become available on the website i use (http://www.banyantreeyarns.com/). So if i like the top when it is finished, i will order the yarn and knit it again in cotton-ease!

I hope this has been of help, please don't hestiate if you need me to explain anything else!

Thanks! Yes, I think I must be doing the yarn overs too tightly, as it was hard to see that there were 2 new stitches.

I recast last night and worked through row 4... we'll see how it goes now!

It's in the newest Knit.1 magazine. I can scan it for you but I've never posted a photo on craftster so I can't guarantee I'll do it right!

I LOVE that diamond shawl! Is it a pattern or your own design?

The shawl pattern is from the book Victorian lace today. It's the second pattern in the book.

I keep reading great reviews of the book. I see why!

My leaf camisole is coming along slowly but surely. I have to wait until all 3 kids are in bed so I don't get distracted and lose my place~ I've never done anything but stockinette, garter, or seed stitch. I tried to knit with Conan O'Brien and even got lost listening to him!

I'm on row 10 of the front so nothing worth showing yet!

Here is my progress so far...




I'm knitting it is slightly thinner yarn than the recommended, so it has less structure, but i quite like the more flowing qualities of this cotton yarn.  I'm also making the body about 5 cm longer than the pattern suggests, as most of my skirts sit low on my hips and i don't want to show too much tummy/white Northern Irish flesh!!  Cheesy
