Okay, I am actually trying this. *shudder -- half of fear, half gleeWink

I am just finishing the first section and about to head into the straight rows. 

My paranoia question it this: My markers are all on TBL stitches; the blurb at the begginning of the pattern makes this sound wrong, but everything is working out, and I can't seem to make sense of it any other way; am I going to run into trouble when things start getting dropped or reduced?  Huh

Thanks for any advice --

I finished one about a week ago.  It's in a yarn by Brooks Farm, but I can't remember which one.  Mohair, silk, very soft.  I was worried about color pooling as I knitted, but I think it came out lovely at the end.



PimpernelSmith, the marker should be between a TBL and a regular K stitch. The pattern should be TBL, marker, K, TBL.  Then the Ks are dropped.

PimpernelSmith: 

Your markers should be in between a TBL stitch and a regular knit stitch, which is then followed by another TBL stitch. When you drop a stitch, it's that regular knit stitch after the marker and in between the 2 TBL stitches that you will drop and unravel.

Does that make sense?

KRUD! Embarrassed

Then I must have messed up on about row two....
I have the markers on tbl stitches with a k on each side....

Please double check me here: Markers always go on the stitch just made, right? So that in "Row 14: sl1, k1, pm, yo, etc" the marker goes on the k1?  Undecided
I think that may be where I got screwed up...somehow....

Thanks for the help --

Markers don't go on the stitches they go between the stitches.

"Row 14: sl1, k1, pm, yo, etc"

Row 14: sl1, k1, pm = slip the marker onto the needle, yo etc.
Next row when you get to the marker you slip it from the left needle to the right needle.

*blinking rapidly in awed shock*  Shocked
           holy crap

how did i not know that? i must have been taught it at some time, modified my habit, and then forgotten the original???

So now I need to assess the situation anew.  I think this means that, rather than ripping out, I can just move all my markers over into the gap, because all the correct stitches are there, just the markers are off....

THANK YOU elijor!!!!  Cheesy

That's what it sounds like to me, PimpernelSmith. Just move yer markers! Every time there's a marker on the needle you should have a TBL stitch before it, then the marker (on the needle!), followed by a regular knit stitch, then a TBL stich. Then k3, etc., blah, blah, blah, ad infinitum, over & over & over & over until you're dreaming about knitting stitches through the back loop, and... okay, I think I've said enough.

Good luck! And what a relief no frogging.
