  • Re: working heel flap on my first sock

    OK, now I have another problem. The number of stitches on each needle is different. I wish the pattern specified which is needle 1, 2 and 3 and how many stitches should be on each. I imagine if you're a seasoned sock knitter you know how to keep going once you begin working the gusset. Is there a formula for this? How many stitches should be on

    In fact, I'd be willing to try right along with you so we can suffer through it together. Kind of like a knit-along, but just you and me. We can support each other through our difficulties. I will be using dpns though, I tried knitting a hat using the magic loop method and it was just too much trouble. By the way, amazon has a great deal on sets

    You have two wonderful resources for this: 1. web videos - look up magic loop sock knitting on youtube! Also knitty.com as well as many bloggers have some great tutorials if you just do a text search on google. 2. local library - i've checked out several books from my library (I'm in SF though, so that may be why we have so many books on knitting

  • Re: too many stitches, correct number of rows!

    Hi Zoe, Thanks for the tip about keeping a journal of the sweater. What sort of things do I take note on? I love the idea that maybe one day she will knit this as the first sweater for her own child! By the way, I finished my second swatch with 3.75mm needles and I got five and a quarter stitches per inch! I went back and looked at my first swatch and

    I feel silly now. It only mentioned to check the gauge with the 3.75mm needles, not the 3.25mm needles, so I should assume I only have to check the gauge once and with the larger needles. The smaller needles are to knit the neckband, button band and the button hole band. I got the pattern from a book "Debbie Bliss Easy Knits." And yes, my

  • Re: too many stitches, correct number of rows!

    Thanks for your help Zoe. I understand i have to change needle sizes - I scoured the internet for what to do. But what I was confused about, and which you answered perfectly, was what do you do when you have the right number of rows but the wrong number of stitches. I didn't want to end up with the opposite problem and then have to fix that and
