Can we see a pic Dev? If it's tension, you need to frog... but some things just look wonky until they really "get going."

That would do just for playing around I think. Thank you!

I found the short rows too!

I cast on some yarn i picked up last year called cherries by Just Sheepy. I never used it since it looked so different when I got it but I think it wants to be shorties.

And lastly does anyone have the WW short row link? I don't have it on this computer yet. I have been slowly trying all the short row methods, for fun I guess. So far I can get all to work. But I kinda liked that on and want to try it again.
I've gotten brown but you really need to use like, the whole jar of gel to get a good chestnut. I'll go grab a pic.

Dev - if you hate it I would frog it - specially if you are only two rows in....

I am playing on the computer before I have to keep sewing...
I casted on WSK solid trim last night and now I am debating which main colorway to knit with.....the trim is hot pink - should I knit this:



or curtsy.....I am making longies and Curtsy just looks like it needs to be a skirty with natural trim....but its so pretty....

and then I got these yesterday so I could do one of these, after all I am only on my second row of the waist band....

Hi mamas! I figure if there's anyone who would know this, it would be the wool lovers.

Does anybody know of a spinner who will spin up some undyed fiber for you? I need some natural trim for some Malabrigo I picked up yesterday, and have some undyed, unspun merino that I would love to have spun into single-ply yarn. I figure I could post an ISO for undyed 1-ply PW, but this is also an option I'd like to explore. My grandmother taught me to spin years ago, but I haven't done it since I was a child and I don't even have a drop spindle, let alone a wheel. She offered a wheel to me but she's a few hours away and I just haven't been up there to get it yet.

I figured it's taking me something like 7 1/2 rows per inch. There's 104 stitches per row, and I knit english so I'm slow anyway. Oh, and it's in pattern, so I have to concentrate and can't just veg out in front of the tv and knit.

Am I allowed to ask for pricing advice here? I have a pair of longies I don't know how to price for my store.

I usually use 6s or 7s.
