Can someone explain or point me to learn Left Lifted Increase? After RLI, slip marker,
the LLI actually is picking the stitch under the RLI I just did, isn't it?

Is there a picture to show what the pattern becomes around this area?
Thanks!

I found that the increase looked better for me if I knit one after slipping the marker and then did the increase.

I'm almost done with the cables now! I didn't feel like posting a pic of my non blocked sweater so here are the obligatory artsy shots:






I am using Georga 100% wool in the colorway ''Green'' *pretty original name* that I got from Wal-Mart. It is very soft and shiny and I love it!

I just finished the sewn bind-off and it made the end of the sweater so stiff that when I tried to try it on, it didn't go past my shoulders. Anyway, I won't give up, I'll try to find a way to fix this. *Must be courageous*

I have finished completely and plan on posting pictures VERY soon!

I used the sewn bind off, but I did it really loosesly.  As in, ridiculously loose.  But it turned out to be wonderful in the end, because I was able to block the skirt wider without stretching the bindoff at all.  I think the normal bind-off would be too tight for this purpose.

i opted for basic bind off. i did it very loosely so it has a lot of strech.. now my problem is with this beaded bind offs! i cannot make them! i remember i made something similar when i knit up fetchings but then again i was improvising and now i seem to forgot how i did it that time.. ugh.. can anyone explain it to me?

I'm having some trouble with the picot edge along the necline. At the back and in the center front (where I've picked up in my cast on stitches) my otherwise nice edge just folds down towards the outside of the fabric. It's not too bad at the back where I used long tail cast on, but at the front, where I used cable cast on, it folds sharply along the original edge of the neckline.

Have I done something wrong, or is this the sort of thing blocking fixes?

it did the same thing with mine too. i already opted out for picot edge so i knit a few rows more...
