Glad I could actually help!  Let me know how it turns out.

Left hand needle.  Your stitches will be on the right hand needle.  Stick in the left hand needle from the left side and grab the yarn on the right side of the stitches, and pull it to the left.  I think we're gettin' there!

Yeah, some pics will probably be helpful in learning SSK.  It is definitely different than K2 tog.  I will try to explain, never know   Wink

Slip both stitches knitwise (like you're gonna knit 'em) onto the right hand needle.  Insert your left hand needle into both stitches from left to right.  Grab the yarn and pull it through both stitches at once.  It's kind of strange.  You have to do it once and then you'll be all excited and you'll wanna do it more!  It's almost mystical the way it happens.  Try it and if it still ain't happenin, see if you can download a video.

Good luck
85  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re:Fondu?? on: January 21, 2004 09:40:05 AM
Our family does fondue every Christmas eve.  

Caramel Fondue
(Grandma's recipe)

1 bag of caramels (you have to unwrap them, compel some young relatives to help you out)
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Heat it all together.  It is sweeeeeeet.  Dip apples and bananas in it.

Swiss Fondue
(Grandma's recipe, too)

4 cups shredded swiss
dash nutmeg
about 2 teaspoons cornstarch
(shake this up in a Ziploc bag)

Crush a clove of garlic in the pot and rub it on the inside of the pot.  Add about 2 cups of white wine and heat.  Put in 1 handful of cheese at a time, and stir until it's all melted  (takes a while, but don't get impatient and toss it all in or you'll have a MESS) before adding more.  Repeat until all cheese is in.   Dip French bread in it.

Beer Cheese Fondue
(a coworker's recipe)

4 cups of cheddar cheese
1 can of beer
1 clove garlic

Rub garlic on pot, add beer, heat to simmer.  Stir in one handful of cheese at a time.  Dip French bread in it.

When I first was knitting I had your very same question.  The answer is that a k2tog makes a decrease stitch slanting to the left, while an ssk makes a decrease slanting to the right.  When you're making something that has sides, i.e. a halter top, you want your decreases to go in line with the fabric.  

Hope this helps!  Cheesy
