I am so mad I am about ready to quit and find another hobby!!!!!!
I know there were threads on this very problem and I have read them and hoped all would be ok.. .but I am so frustrated at trying to knit in the round!! I am trying to do this #$%^&* hat
on my Denise's size 10.5 16" and it is RIDICULOUSLY TIGHT !!!
I cast on two diff. ways, 48 stitches, even watched Amy's video (she has such a calm voice... ohhhhmmmmm) but no matter how i try to keep the first joining stitch tight... it is IMPOSSIBLE to continue all the way around. I got about halfway around just the first stinkin' row two diff. attempts and finally just cut the yarn... cussed..(thus scaring the cat)
and have basically vowed never to attempt knitting anything in the round... EVER!!!!
(breathe, 1,2,3,4.....) Thanks for letting me rant, but I still QUIT!...
anybody know of any hang-gliding / javelin throwing websites as well done as this one....just curious... :rollseyes:
