Here I am working away on my first sweater and hit a snag... in the middle of the back of the darned thing so, what do I do?
I come here looking for someone to help me figure out what is wrong with this stupid pattern... *&*&%& (blush!)
So I start to type in the part of the pattern I'm having trouble with and there it is...
I can see it clearly now... It's not the pattern; it's the way I'm reading it! LOL!:aww:
Well, I feel that stupid... I just had to share...!:wink:
I was reading it... dec 1 st at each neck edge every 5 rows but what it was saying was... dec 1 st at each neck edge every row 5 times... Makes a big difference....
Pardon me while I go tink a few rows.... groan!

Ditto - it's my favorite place to visit, whether I'm having problems or not!

And I think we've all done the same thing. A lot of times it's the way we're reading the pattern and not the pattern itself.

Thank goodness the sweater pieces are now knit... now I can start on something different... like blocking... LOL!
Yes... I totally agree... very nice people here!

Ah yes--blocking--the funnest part of any knitting project (not). As you might note, I don't like doing blocking. But I still do it because the results make it totally worth it. :)
