OK, so I just responded to the first post about provisional CO by licata519. So, I know how to do each method of provisional CO. My two questions concern dealing with the twisted sts in the provisional CO method that is on this site.
[color=green]Here’s my first question: Does anyone else besides me deal with the twisted CO sts LATER ON when they come back to them rather than immediately in the first row following CO?[/color] Just curious…'cause I’m nutty that way!
Though I’m accustomed to spotting a twisted st and know how to untwist it, I have a hard time recognizing twisted CO sts when I work that first row. Somehow they alternate back and forth, one st being twisted, the next not. But, I can’t tell which are the twisted ones since the leading part of the loop is always in front. So I don’t deal with it until I later come back to work the live sts when it’s easier to tell.
When I come back later on and work the live CO sts, I can then see immediately which CO sts are twisted and work those through the back loop. [color=green]So, here’s my second question: Now why couldn’t I tell which ones were twisted when I worked that first row after casting on!!![/color] Maybe I should be content that the way I do it is still correct and doesn’t take any more time. …Heck, I’m not even going to use any provisional COs anytime soon in my upcoming projects. But, being the perfectionist that I am :oops:, I’m curious as all get out!
Darn my curiosity! :wall: :wall:
So I guess that my questions are not so much for help as they are for discussion purposes. :?eyebrow:
Well… OK, the second question is for help. Anyone? Anyone?
