Oh, I'm just totally frustrated...I was trying to knit a hat and mitts for my baby cousin. First the hat came out too big. Then I ran out of yarn in the middle of the second mitten (the one I kept dropping stitches on). And then I tried to frog the hat and ruined the icord top trying to do so - it's Moda Dea cutesie and apparently not unravelable.
Um but what I was doing was knitting the first stitch or two with the loops on the needle itself then pulling through to the cord, per Amy's video instructions. If there is no ill effect of knitting that side, then pulling the stitches onto the cord while starting the other side, I think I'll do that. Much easier.
