What do they say?  Happy accidents?  I love those.  Sometimes I want to tell everyone that I MEANT to make the mistake that I did, play it off like I'm a pro, but it's just so much more fun to brag about my screw ups!

Looks great!

Awesome, that was perfect.  I'm a pretty visual person, so sometimes learning out of books is difficult for me. 

As much as I LOVE the Stitch 'N Bitch book, I wish there were more inbetween steps shown on some stuff than there is.  But hey, luck for me I have Crafster!!  Hopefully my nest post reguarding this freakin' think will be under FINISHED projects.   Smiley

Thanks again for your help!

UUUGHHH Maybe I'm doing things wrong from the very beginning.  Okay, so I have my 44 garter stitches on and ready to go.  Do I pick up all of my stitches with my LEFT hand needle?  'Cause that's what I've been doing... when people say "join the round" I don't exactly know what that means which leads me to believe I'm doing it wrong.  What's to join?   Smiley  Thanks for your help, I was a little afraid nobody would respond 'cause this thread is kinda old and short, hehheee...

Okay, that's where I get stuck.  Once I have joined my round on the Marsupial Tote, I START with the yarn on my left needle, but after one stitch it somehow ends up on the right!  I just can't figure out how.  I've been struggling with this thing forever, but I don't want to just give it up, 'cause it's too cool for that.  Smiley  Any suggestions?

You could be knitting too tight.  When I first started, I knitted sooo tight that I got a calice on my finger from the needle 'cause I had to PUSH the loop off instead of letting it just slide off.  They really should just slide right off.

Most likely it won't matter if you straighten the stitches out if you knit a little looser.  I like to tidy up my stitches too, but I do it row by row, not stitch by stitch.  And all it consists of is kind of pulling at the section in general, not stressing out too much about each stitch.

Hope that all makes sense!  I promise you'll get it  Smiley

YAY hopefully now I will get some answers... this project has been left undone for days... I have the bottom of the bag knitted and all of the correct stitches picked up... but it just seems like my circular needles are too short!  I have no room to do much of anything.  I used the right length of needles, and my knitting is the appropriate tightness, (what's that called, again?) Did I miss something, or is it supposed to be that way? 

I was tempted so many times to unravel it and knit something else, but I just love this tote too much.  Hopefully all y'all craftster gals can help me out!  Thanks.

I knit contintental and I think I do it like greenchic but backwards... I move my whole left hand, yarn and all, around the needle, and anchor my LEFT needle on my thigh.  (although sometimes it slides towards the crotch area, and, when knitting in public, that usually causes some pretty interesting looks  Smiley)

I also found that knitting to music or a book on tape helps me move faster because I get in a groove easier... or trance maybe is a better word.  I can't just KNIT, I have to be doing something or listening to something.  My guess is in a few months you'll be laughing at the memory of your slow knitting speed!   Wink

Wow, you're quite proficient in Paint!  I enjoyed your drawings almost more than the skirt itself!  Smiley
