[b]This yarn is so hairy and odd that it's easy to get the stitches back on one by one if you take a few out but ripping back more than a row, I have no clue what to look for insofar as getting them back on ............. but on frogging I was able to measure it and realized it's not long enough anyway ..... I'm using 8 mm needles and 85 st and it was 4 ft long ... I need it about 5 ft. (I measured using a towel :teehee: around myself) ......... if I use 9 mm needles would I get a larger shawl with the same amount of stitches? This yarn says 8 st/14 r to a 4x4".
Here I thought a shawl was easy ............ mine is just a large scarf, it's not even triangular!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :grrr:
We have a knitting night on the 15th .... the owner of the shop is great but if someone makes a mistake she says "FROG IT" so she's not real helpful for getting someone's stitches back on, but one of the other ladies probably is ......... seems that's her answer for everything that is in error ... just frog it ...... even if you are five rows away from completion!! AGGGHHH.
Maybe I'll start something else ........ is there a law against having more than one thing on the go at a time?????
