I'm using a wine colored bamboo silk that knits up well, is comfy soft, and a pretty color. Pam started a hat at about the same time, she's almost finished. I haven't made it past the first 12 rows yet. I've knitted about 50 rows, but you can't count them since I was technically re-knitting the first ten over and over again.
I think I have however finally figured out why I start with 90 stitches and grow as I go. I'm not completing the sk2p stitch by passing the slipped stitch over. Simple mistake? Yes, but do I have to keep making it. Can I not just learn and get on with it all ready?
Once I make it past the lace-edged the hat is all straight knitting until the decreases so I just need to pay attention. My goal - to finish this hat by Wednesday. I better use my stitch markers!
