Yes, please do post the recommended reading. I get the concept of the short row... I use it when I'm knitting socks, but there was something about the second short row in the pattern that just threw me. Ive put this project aside for awhile due to the frustration, but perhaps after reading the books you reccomend something will click and I can move on through the pattern without difficulty. Thank you so much!

I started knitting the afgan, but I had problems on one of the short rows... I forget which one, the second short row I think. I kept coming up short. Do you have any tips on the short rows? Or picking up the yarn where you wrap it in the short rows? I kept missing the spots where you were supposed to K or P them together.

*sigh* Ok, so when I post I want people on the boards to help me improve my crafting skills to the best level possible. Sharing ideas and advice is why we are all here... oh and to gawk at lovely creations we wish we had the skills to make... lets not forget about that. That being said, I found this article that might help anyone who is intrested in taking better photos : http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/digitalphotography/learnmore/composition.mspx

I think you are off to a great start. However I would like to offer some constructive critisim. Your photos are boring. They are boring because their are a million other people with photos exactly like them. One of the best things you can do to improve your photograpy skills is practice compisiton like crazy. In photo school one of the first things you learn is to walk in a circle all the way around your subject and shoot from every angle possible. Shoot high, shoot low, crop in close and zoom out. Do this every time you shoot a subject for a few months and I promise you will get amazing results. Also brush up on the Rule of Thirds. Keep up the good work.

I contacted the editor of knitty today and sent a CC to the designer. Hopefully there will be a correction to the pattern soon. However I am a bit disheartend to hear that Yarnhag contacted the designer and never got a responce. We will see what happens.

Im  not closed mined. If you can find aqua net hair spray, spray the heck out of your liberty spikes and then sorta hold em up while you gently blowdry on the high heat setting. If you do that with elmers your hair will stay up as long as you dont sleep on it or crush it.

So er, as a candy kid I was completely convinced the scene was dead. I guess it lives on to some compacity. Nice candy bracelets hehe....

So does anybody know how to contact knitty to request a pattern correction? Do they have a link to an email on their website? I will put "poking around" their site on my to do list for the afternoon.

I want to start by saying I did not read this post before I casted on. Nor have I read all 45 pages of this post.
Knitty REALLY needs to make corrections to the pattern! I casted on 3 different times all with worsted wt yarn, with the right gauge and Id get a piece that was about 28inches long. Finally I just winged it and found that about 86 stitches is just about right to fit a normal 23in head circumference.
120 stitches is just ridiculous! Ive wasted all day knitting and tearing out. Hopefully tomorrow Ill finish up in just a few hours.
