Hi again all, Well I have finally stepped into the realm of the dreaded dpns!!! After getting over the fear of it looking like some sort of torture device and my husband cringing in his chair thinking someone is going to lose an eye, and pulling the WRONG dpn out of my hand about a zillion times… I have the first 9 rows done… lol, severe accomplishment for me let me tell ya! The mantra of it’s only a piece of yarn until the last stitch has been going through my head a zillion times Anyway, I have a question on my pattern so I turn to the experts
I got a book from the book store called “Lion Brand Yarn Just Socks” and my daughter picked out a beginner (wish they had lower then beginner patterns!) Well, row 10 states; “Knit across 22 stitches using waste yarn. You will be comming back later to ‘unzip’ these stitches and work the heel. After knitting waste yarn, return to beginning of round and knit across the placeholder stitches with B.”
My question, does this mean you would use waste yarn as your main color type deal, then go back and get the real color your working with and knit like nothing is different??? (did that make sense?)
Shaping Toe “Round 1 On needles 1, knit 1, slip slip knit, knit across. On needle 2, knit to last 3 stitches, knit 2stitches together, knit 1. On needle 3, knit 1, slip slip knit, knit across. On needle 4, knit to last 2 stitches, knit 2 together, knit 1”
Is slip slip, you slip those 2 onto right needle, knit then slip those 2 over knit stich and drop off?
Thanks for your help!!
