I just started last night! If there's a line at my polling place, I'll definitely be working on it there.

Wow, I just realised how totally baffling knitting patterns are to me(i am a brand new knitter, 3 weeks and counting!) I think I will need to seek out some local knit-master help to decode this baby...

So is it just a knit-purl except for the ribbing?

I thought it was knit on the round, which I dont know how to do...But it doesn't look TOO daunting...? Truth is, I just can't read the patterns, and they look so scary...Help?

Lookin' good pink lightning!

Would you like to knit in the round, or no?
I'm going to work mine in the round, because I don't like to do the seaming.

If you work back and forth (not in the round), you will knit on the right side, and then when you turn it around to go back, you will purl.  Just a simple stockinette stitch.

And yes, that is other than the ribbing, which you start with.  It's just a one by one rib, so you will knit, purl, knit, purl... till the end of the row.  And when you turn it around to the other side, just work into them as they are.  So if it looks like a knit stitch, you will knit it, and then purl, then knit, purl, etc.

I hope that helps!

That  sounds so much easier than looking at all the weird abbreviations!

I have never knit in the round, because it seems tricky(and I like the big long sticks...seems more...Knitty...som ehow) but then again, I just started, so what do I know?

Going this afternoon to try to find the right weight of yarn!

For this project, it wouldn't be tricky at all.  You would place a marker at the "end of the row"... and just knit around.  And don't stop... until you've come back around to the marker the right amount of times for the row count.  So if it asks for 14 rows, you knit around to the marker 14 times.  But since you aren't turning it around all the time... you just keep doing the same thing.  So for stockinette... it's fourteen rounds of just knitting.  No purls.

Sometimes patterns are tricky for me as well.  I like to write them out in words that I know I will understand, before I work on a pattern.  I've already taken apart this pattern, and made it a little better for me to understand, for once I get to it.  I still have a scarf to finish this week... and I'm only about 35% finished, so far.

Regardless, the pattern work work on long needles or circular needles... or dpns, for that matter... since I couldn't find any circs in the size I wanted for this project.   Sad

Hi Everyone!
It's a little slow going since I'm knitting both legs at the same time on circulars.
Question: I've never posted a picture on here - does anyone use photo bucket?
I want to show you all the progress Smiley
Thanks for your help!

I used photobucket to upload my pictures. Let us know if you have any problems with it. I want to see more pictures!

How are you knitting them both at the same time? And on circulars? Experienced knitters never cease to amaze me.
