Not to technical but.....
To ekgheiy: no it isn't to difficult but I just can't seem to see what I am doing....the idea of the life line is great---I have never done that before but I will try it.
to Yvonne: I realize that it is basically simple and I am just making this harder than it is.....I can do the pattern, I just seem to get confused and was even having trouble taking out stitches that were wrong. Thanks for the offer but I think I am going to try the life line idea, so I don't have to start completely over.
I was beginning to think that I should give up but I will try this again.
Thanks to both of you for the prompt replies and willingness to help.
