Hey Ingrid. I think I get it better now. What I tried to do was add on a new strand of my mc at the end of the graphic instead of carrying it through. I'll just stick with the one strand now so the slip/purl trick will work. I'd love to come by for a demo but you're a bit far :( . Why don't you come with us on vacation? I'm going to be in the car for 6 hours tomorrow - that should give me enough time for trial and error. I'll let you know how it turns out when I get back.
Thanks SO much!!!!!!!
