I'm not sure I understand this part. Could you point me in the direction of the posts in the forum. I'm not sure what to search for.
Thanks so much for your help.

I'd be happy to link you to it, but I'm still searching for it.

I found the post in What'cha Knittin'? section! Post from ArtLady1981 "WIP: short rows will "even out" your buttonbands"

(I am almost certain it wasn't a figment of my imagination.)
(So relieved I found it. )

Artlady thank you!
Artlady so much of what you've posted has benefitted me already!
I've spent days just reading thru old threads & found some wonderful pattern ideas & design issues I hadn't even thought of yet.
This is the most wonderful place to spent my day!
(((HUGS)))Verna
I've even started knitting when waiting for something to search or download, so I'm not wasting knitting time. So much to finish & so
little time!

OffJumpsJack thank you for taking the time to help me out! I think I've finally figured out what I need to do & will just design my own scarf from start to finish.

Has anyone used this program yet? How'd it work for you?
I found out the pic I'd seen of writing on the sweater was done after the fact.
I have made large blocky letters, but I want more simple ones so I'm gonna keep trying different things until I get it right. (((HUGS))),Verna
