I'm doing my first skirty. I'm adding the ruffle to the a-line skirt. After those instructions it says to prevent it from curling to do an edge. Do I need to do that? I would think it wouldn't need an edge like the full skirt

Re: KAL ~ January 2013

An edge like a few rows of seed stitch after you're done? Yes, it will help depending on the type of ruffle you are doing. It will curl up.

Re: KAL ~ January 2013

Or you can just let it roll up if you like it that way, so I guess you don't HAVE to add an edge

I would also suggest adding an edge of some sort if you want it to lay flat

Just had to frog a huge portion of my longies due to pooling, going to try knitting from the top and bottom of the skein and see if that helps

Oh no! What a pain, but it is always worth it to frog for my own sanity. I go crazy if the pooling is too much and hate the finished product.

We have a lot of flooding, a covered bridge is right down the road from us and we keep seeing people drive back by because they can't get out that way. The kids are finding it entertaining. I have no motivation to do anything today and I need to clean.

I mostly DPN socks, but if I do handspun ones I will do them two at a time on magic loop. I can't say what's faster or slower really, because it depends on the pattern complexity. Stuff like Thelonious takes me a while because I end up having to highlight my progress or the constant kid interruptions will mess me up to no end.
I need to learn to ML or get the smaller ones. Making socks with dpns isn't going to happen
