Big Wool Keeps on Turning...Wednesday

Good morning everyone. I'm trying to wake up over coffee so I can add my second row of short rows into the Ravensong shorties.

Nuts! How do we fix this? We both started the thread at the same time. . .
Mine can be deleted, but I guess I need a mod to do it?

Re: Big Wool Keep's on Turning...Wednesday

Ok, so here is my question.
I'm planning on knitting a sweater for my lo. Size 2t, (I'm thinking if I start now it'll be done by next winter . . .) How much yarn will I need, and can I use superwash merino? From what I understand that isn't a good yarn for longies, but since this is a sweater will it work?

Love the title Dev! So fun.

Goodmorning ladies. Dh is getting Gab up this morning so I can lay and check email for about 15 precious mins.

Kimann4: That colorway by Blackbird Baby was gorgeous!

And he's done. Gotta go already.

Re: Big Wool Keeps on Turning...Wednesday

OK- I will try again LOL...



Morning mamas.

OK- I am stuck and I need some help pretty please. So I completed my waist band, did my increases, started into the colorway and am ready to start short rows (which have me totally baffled). I have a couple of questions.... Thus far I have not used stitch markers and I guess I need some huh? I do know my exact starting point, so, where and how do I place the stitch marker and what common household item can I use if I own no stitch markers? I am confused where to "begin" with short rows. HELP!

oops, sorry. Timing.

Kristi, just saw your post in the other thread. I'm thinking you could use scrap yarn in a different color and just tie it in loops, maybe?

Do you have a twisty tie or a rubber band?

You can tie a contrasting color of yarn into a loop and use that as a stitch marker. What pattern are you using? I like Sheepy Pants short rows but use this method.

Re: Big Wool Keeps on Turning...Wednesday

OK- yes. Both of those (scrap yarn and rubberbands) So- I know this is stupid but what do I do? just thread it onto the needle? Before or the first stitch in the row? And I need to be able to remove it later right? Anyone have a pic? I know this is the most simple thing ever LOL
