[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???
