Hi all -
I don’t think I did a formal intro here but responded to a post waaaayyy back a few weeks when I wasn’t insanely swamped with various life thingies.
Anyhow, HI! My name is Jenn, I’m new to knitting (only in it 6 months or so). I’m a photographer by trade part-time and a SAHM to my son, Patrick, who is a very crazy 2 year old.
I’ve been a lurker here for awhile. LOVE this site and it’s been so incredibly helpful to me in my learning of the craft.
So, now for my question. I’m making the blanket it in first Stitch N Bitch book (it’s the only one in there) and I’m having a HUGE problem with laddering. Part of the pattern is 52 knit stitches and the switch to 52 purl stitches in each row. I’m trying to knit the purls as tight as humanly possible and I’m still getting this ladder effect where the knits switch to purls. Does anyone have any recommendations as to how I can remedy that. I just can’t seem to figure it out.
