so... wouldn't i then have one extra row on one side of the center stitches?

I'll post the rest of the pattern (I hope it's not violating any copyrights, i just need help!)
"continue straight for a further 1 1/8 ins. Work 2 sts tog over next 3 rows (1 st remains). Bind off, leaving a long enough strand to sew up side seam on thumb.
Rejoin yarn to remaining stitches and work 2 ins in st st. work 2 sts tog over next 4 rows. Break off yarn, leaving a long enough strand to sew up side seams."

the book is called "Stitches, Patterns and Projects for Knitting" by Wanda Bonando
(originally published in Italian apparently in 1979)
I got it at a thrift store. It's a pretty neat little book, but I'm confused.

I also am under the suspicion that these are children's mittens. It doesn't give a size. I just wanted to get through a more complicated project than a scarf... and my Stitch and Bitch book is on loan to a friend.

Hey, I'm quite new to knitting and I'm teaching myself from books mostly.

I am currently trying to knit some mittens (from a pattern i have in a book)
and I'm stuck on this one part.

Ive done the first part of the pattern:
CO 32 sts, work in single rib for 1.5 ins
Continue for 3/4 in in st st

this is where I'm stuck:
"Leave all except the 2 center sts on a spare needle (or slip onto a length of yarn)" <-- i *think* i have that part.. it seems pretty self explanatory... I put all but the 2 center sts on another needle.

"Working on the 2 sts, continue for 2 ins, increasing 1 st at each side of central sts on every row until there are 12 sts."

It's not the increasing I'm worried about, it's that the yarn that I'm working with is on the spare needle (because now I'm working on the 2 center sts.) and I don't know how/what to knit next!

I really hope I explained this properly. It's probably something simple that I'm missing.

Thank you for ANY help!

well i actually went today... i went to textile importers. they had a tonne but i didnt have access to them so i couldnt look through all the colours! i had to just say "green" or "brown"

why are all these places closing??! im sick of paying $3.45 for a zipper. sheesh. (perhaps im just cheap)

(i wonder what they're donig with all the zippers when they close?)

9  CANADA / Ontario / zippers in downtown toronto? on: June 24, 2005 01:40:02 PM
i was just wondering if anyone knows any good stores that sell relatively cheap zippers of various lengths/colours? im kind of looking for a place where i wont have to dig through a bin of random zippersto find what i want.

(i live in kensington market) and i dont really want to go to fabricland, cause they are kind of expensive.

i havent yet checked king textile, but i will.

there used to be a store on queen near spadina called leather something or other.
but it is closed!!!!! i was so sad to find that out because they had all the zippers in bins according to their length/colour and they were soooo cheap.

now im lost.

everywhere else i have been to is just random zippers. gargh!!.
