Thanks to all your advice the Weekend Pullover is going quite well.
I’m almost finished with my increase rounds and I’m getting ready to divide for the sleeves.
So far the project is going really swimmingly. I braved the DPNs for 4 rounds before surrending and trying suzeeq’s Magic Loop technique. The DPNs screwed up my tension a little so I may need to knit a couple of extra increase rounds.
I was getting so excited that I did a stupid mistake though. I started knitting a round before checking to see if I had enough yarn on the skein. I got to about where I had 10-12 stitches left in the round but I couldn’t get any farther.
Following the instructions in my Vogue Knitting book, I tried to unravel the ends of both the new and old yarn and twist them together but I couldn’t make the join secure enough so I went back to my usual way of changing at the end of a row of tying a loose knot of the new yarn around the old yarn and pushing it up to the needle. I’ll plan to weave the ends later. This join seems secure but its really only recommended for the ends of rows.
I’m thinking that in the round it shouldn’t make that much difference between changing at the end of a row and in the middle because its all one round, but there may be something I’m missing. I just know that the unravel and twist method was not secure at all, at least the way I did it.
