Slipping stitches question
I'm attempting to make http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...bump-dishcloth. I know how to slip stitches either knit wise or purl wise, but how do I do that on my first row? Every time I try, my working yarn and the tail yarn are crossing each other and its not making a stitch at all. I'm doing something wrong but no clue what. I'm using the long tail cast on. Thanks!!!

Scroll down to sl1k in the glossary and watch the video. She's not doing it on the first row, but it would still be the same. The tail shouldn't be involved at all.

Did you get it to work right? Sometimes the tail and working yarn seem to insist on getting tangled for me, don't know why, I just move it out of the way. This is a popular pattern, I just finished one today. Then I made a headband using the same stitch pattern. LOL I liked it even better in the round, less purling.

I'm still fighting with it. Lol I did it right, then had to frog the whole thing. I keep telling myself practice makes perfect. How did you convert it to the round? I've not yet tried anything in the round.

Lessee, I cast on 72 sts, worked 2 rounds of p2, k1 (rounds 1 & 2) then knitted 2 rounds (rounds 3 & 4) then did it all again. I used a multiple of 3 and didn't add in the +1 because there is no edge to need an edge stitch. When you knit in the round you always are knitting from the RS so for stockinette you just knit away. The purl rows in this pattern turn into knit rows. It's easy once you know how. Until you've knitted in the round, this probably makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, don't worry, when you get there it will.

LOL!! I've read enough I sorta understand it! I think I'm gonna try a hat for my daughter soon. She did a wonderful job on a garter stitch scarf and wants a hat and mittens to match. She's 14.

That'll be so cool. And she made her own scarf! Good for her! Do you plan to use DPNs or circular needles? If you took a poll here I think you'd find most of us prefer circs. I could be wrong there but it seems that way from what people post. I dislike the sharp ends of sock needles attacking me so I stick with circs as much as possible. Also, after I bought my set of interchangables I didn't want to go spend even more money on a lot of DPNs. Whichever way you decide to do it, you know where you can get all kinds of help. Maybe your daughter would like to try knitting in the round at the same time you do? You could have quality mother-daughter time.

Now I feel so old. My GD is 14.

Don't feel old. I have 18 years separating my oldest and youngest. The baby is 4. I still wonder what I was thinking. Lol.

I've offered to teach DD more than once but she prefers to watch YouTube. Lol. I'll try to remember to post a pic of her scarf!

And, to answer the question, probably circs. I can't imagine trying to keep track of those needles. I'd reach up to scratch my face and lose an eye. LOL
