I had to frog and restart the edging about 4 times before I finally kept going.  Did anyone else find a mistake in the pattern?  This was the reason for my frustration with it. I end up with an extra stitch on the "2nd half" of the edging pattern (after the ssk/attach, k1, p 17, k2 row).  I end up with an extra stitch on every single row...so I just slip 2 when I go to attach it to the main body.  When I go to restart the pattern again, I have the correct number of stitches.  I've had this extra stitch every single time I've done the pattern, it's shown up in the same row (and I'm almost done with the edging, too).  It looks just fine to me, though.  Can't wait to finish this thing and get it BLOCKED!!!

I used the same Knit Picks yarn, but in the darker blue (stream).  I also didn't graft the main panel, I just knit one whole piece.  I don't like the way it looks grafted together.

Email Eunny, there was a problem with the edging and I am not sure if she updated the pdf yet, of if she has and you are working from the older one.  I can't remember exactly what it was off the top of my head but she'll know for sure. Smiley

Finished!!!!  I blocked it on the 4th of July, and I'm so pleased with the magic that blocking did on what was previously a pile of goofy looking blue, smelly mush.  This thing had seriously been knit all over!!!  Started at my aunt's house on Easter, taken to various bars and coffee shops during knitting group (one bar had a bonfire one night), airplanes, the beach in LA....so by the time it was done, it smelled like a combination of my sweaty hands, saltwater, bonfire and beer!  Needless to say, it got a good soaking/washing.  I'll post pics later once my boyfriend gets them off of his camera and emails them to me.

good for you for finishing! i'd love to see pics.

i am still stumped on the edging, mainly that i keep getting it all twisted. so i think i'm going to knit the edging separately and then graft it all together at the end. it makes more sense in my head that way for some reason. i'm not sure how the corners are going to work out though...

I almost decided to just do the knitting seprately, but then I tried dong it onto the body "one last time" and it worked.  LOL.
