Minor help can help me in a major way! I bought the wonderful wallaby pattern Sunday and started a wallaby for my newphew’s 1st birthday (September 16th). I have all of one sleeve done and most of the second, and want to start the body.
Today we left from northern New York State for a 3hr trip to my sister’s house, and tomorrow we will be driving another EIGHT (8) hours to Virginia. My major problem? I LEFT THE PATTERN AT HOME!
A friend is going to go to my house tomorrow and scan and email the pattern, but that doesn’t help me out tomorrow morning. I don’t want to waste an 8 hour ride in the car without knitting.
All I need is the number of stitches to cast on for the body, and then the number of stitches to increas after the ribbing. Because I’m using DK yarn, I am using the stitch count from the second to smallest adult size. I don’t remember the name of the size, but it’s not the extra small but the next one (the first number in parentheses in the adult patterns)
I would really appreciate if someone could give me those two numbers. That should last me the eight hours and when I get to the next computer I’ll have the scanned pattern ready to join the sleeves and do the yoke. I’m sure every knitter out there can sympathize with my situation. Please help if you can! Thank you!
