aahh i see! Have u added more stitches by accident? or is the white yarn thicker than the blue?

almost everyones first projects aren't perfect so don't worry.. and he sounds like he'll like it even if it doesn't turn out perfect first time!

ummm i don't think so. but the white yarn does seem a bit more...fluffy? it that the term for it. he saw it tonight at that astage and he said he loved it. last night when i was complaning about it he told me not to worrie and he thinks it's good. i'm just a bit of a perfectionst and i don't know what's wrong.

the more i look at it the more i see it strate on one side boom poof on the other. again if that makes sence. i swear i'm 21 really

When you finish a knit row and turn, if your yarn is up over the top of the needle to the back, it pulls up the last stitch on the row you just did and it looks like 2. So you may be knitting into both legs of the stitch, but not the stitch iself. So move the yarn off to the side and you'll see the last stitch and where you knit into it.

Ooh, I'm the absolutel DEVIL for doing that with the end stitch Shocked Grin

I've learnt the hard way that I really do have to check my stitches every couple of rows to make sure I haven't picked up some extras along the way  Roll Eyes

That said, if it's only the white bits that are bigger, then the white yarn might well just be thicker - you'd need to use two yarns of exactly the same weight to keep things even, I would think.

Not that I know - I've not long come back to knitting myself, I'm certainly no expert! But I am learning from my mistakes, lol!
