What I have done in the past is use tracing paper to trace a design twice and then kinda play with the copies to see which you like better.  That way if you goof, you haven't hurt your original.  Also if you are happy with the original line drawing as is you might consider a very very light coat of fixative before you move on to another layer.  I would definitely test it on a swatch first though before I did it on the piece.  Hope this helps!

omg I laughed so hard when I watched that video.  That's too funny.  The band reminds me alot of Color me Badd too which made it even better.  I bet your work thought it was hilarious too.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Why does this yarn hate me?! on: November 02, 2007 07:29:45 PM
Don't feel bad...acrylic yarn hates everyone.  The carrying would probably help with the twisting, but I'm not sure it will do much for the splitting part.  I used to have the same twisty problem before I got carrying down.  It took a while of conscious effort before it became a habit.  It has helped me to keep things straight(er) though.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: i can knit, i can purl, so why cant i do ribbing? on: October 30, 2007 01:27:26 PM
Congratulations on your progress!  The last stitch on a row thing is tricky.  Mine is still loose sometimes.  Blocking is supposed to help and I have heard some people say that the only real way not to have a stitch be loose like that it to slip it instead of knitting it.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Socks.. am I missing out? on: October 29, 2007 03:39:06 PM
I was thinking the same thing about missing out as you....so I took the plunge this weekend and I have a toe!(been lazy too)  It really is nice to be able to make something with some interest to it.  If you are concerned about sizing there is an article about a toe up sock formula on http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTuniversalsock.html where you measure everything after you do a gauge swatch.  Wink Which helps me since I am usually a naughty knitter and never gauge things....Pardon my linking btw  Good luck!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: i can knit, i can purl, so why cant i do ribbing? on: October 29, 2007 03:24:17 PM
Ribbing was one of the hardest things for me to get straight when I first started to knit.  I had the exact same problem you did.  Yos everywhere.  You will get it though!  Before long you'll have it so down you'll get bored with the ribbing bit.  As for tension that will come with practice.  It helped me alot to learn to carry my working yarn instead of just letting it hang.  Hang in there!
