Yarn Along: Fourth Time's the Charm...



I have been working diligently on my next project, a seashore cowl, all week long.  Unfortunately, I have nothing to show for it.  I took the first photograph just before I had to frog it all.  For the third time, I found that I had somehow twisted my stitches just before joining in the round.  After rewinding my beautiful Opaline yarn, I cast on for my fourth try.  If I make a mistake this time, I plan to go to our local yarn shop for a little hand-holding.  I feel a bit ridiculous since I have made several things in the round and have been able to prevent twisting all of those times, but my sister  says that it is not unusual to have this problem with such a thin yarn.  She's probably just trying to make me feel better!

I'm still reading The Hobbit.  I hope to finish it before Pascha (May 5th!).

So sorry about your having to restart -- I've been in the same boat with my little house shawl, but we knitters have to persevere, right?! Enjoy the Hobbit -- so, so much better in book form than the movie.

Thanks, Lisa! My sister made my daughter a Little House Shawl! It's a lovely pattern!

That yarn looks very pretty, like it has linen or something, very smooth.

Love The Hobbit.

Thank you, La Chili! I really like the yarn color... It might be my favorite so far!

You will get there! And if you need a bit of hand holding as you call it, well that is what community is all about, right? enjoy the book! I DV will get _Everyday Saints_ for Pascha and can't wait! :)

A little trick for avoiding twists: knit back and forth for 1/2- 1 in. then join and continue in the round. It's much easier to tell if your stitches are twisted on an inch of knitting than it is with cast on stitches!
