1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with Pomatomus on: September 18, 2007 08:21:09 PM
Hi. I'm attempting to knit Pomatomus by Cookie A. (in the winter '05 issue of Knitty).
I've frogged my progress on the sock a few times. I think that my problem is with the set up round. The instructions say:
" [Yo, k2tog, (p1, k1tbl) five times] to end of round. (The sequence will be repeated twice for each needle, or 6 times in total.) "

I have looked at other people's FOs and am fairly certain that I should Yo, k2tog, (p1, k1tbl five more times for a total of ten ribbing stitches).

The problem that I'm having is that this sequence needs to be completed over 72 stitches (24 stitches per dpn), so at the end of the round I have a little half repeat hanging out there.

I decided once to roll with it and continue with the lace chart. However, about halfway through the chart I knew that this was wrong because I still had half of a little repeat there (looked like half of a really wonky fish scale).

Is there anyone who has knit this sock before who can help me out? I feel like there's some piece of knitting knowledge that I am completely lacking here. I loved the way that the lace repeats looked before I frogged my sock, so I would really like to continue on with making these.

Thanks in advance for any help!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Favorite Knitting Manoeuvre on: September 09, 2007 03:21:24 PM
I just started my first intense (well, for me) lace knitting experience. The pattern is putting me in contact with many of my favorite and not so favorite stitches. So, I was just wondering...
Are there any stitches you love? Others that you loathe? What are they and why do you love/hate them so much?

I'll start:
I love making the yarn over. I just love how it doesn't look like anything until you get to the next row, and then it opens up and becomes this pretty eyelet. I also love that a mistake that I used to make constantly when I was a knitting newbie is actually a helpful stitch.

I haaaaaate slip-slip-knit. (Can you now see why this lace experience is so intense for me? Every time I get to make a stitch I like, I have to make a stitch I hate.) I just don't like the feeling of sticking the left needle back into the slipped stitches, especially when using wooden needles.

What about you?

Hi everyone!
I have been lurking on this website for a long time (over a year)! I'm not quite sure what compelled me to finally become a member (or what was keeping me from becoming a member for so long).
I mostly knit, so I'm really looking foward to getting involved in some Knitalongs...but I'm also "swap curious."
Anyway, see you around. I'm excited to involve myself in such a cool community!
