Holy Spirals, Batman!!
So I'm knitting some leg warmers as a gift. I've always had problems with DPNs causing a gap in my work where the needles transition, even when tugging that stitch a little tighter. I remembered reading a tip somewhere to keep moving the transition and the gap won't be as obvious so I tried moving it ahead 2 stitches each round. Wow, was that a bad idea! Now instead of a line-gap down my work I have very obvious spirals! I can't be sure but it almost seems like this time I have the opposite problem: transition stitches are too tight rather than too loose. I'm wondering if I'm forced to rip it all back or if it should fix itself when I wash, stretch and block?? PLEASE say it'll fix itself!!!!!
