making even YOs
as i threatened in another post (;-)) i now have to ask if there is a trick to making YOs look somewhat even, like in a feather/fan motif kinda deal. mine just always look so different in size, not enough that i won't do it, but i wouldn't mind if they were a *little* more uniform. can't decide if it's something i need to focus on when i'm actually doing the YO and the tension of the next stitch or how i work the YO in the following row....

thanks!

I wasn't quite sure how to answer this but the simple response I guess would be - aim for as close to a similar tension and wrap each time as possible!

LOL I did think of the blocking issue later but you said it in a way funnier way than I would have :-)

Are you sure you're doing them correctly? For years I did a yo before a purl just by bringing the yarn to the back. It made a smaller yo than before a knit.
