My nipples aren't right
I am working on the boobie scarf from knitty.com and am having problems understanding the nipples. Since I am typing this on a mac and am not familiar with all of the features of it yet (like copy/paste), I will just type the part I don't get.

Nipples must be worked on RS. Work nipple on center st of row. Knit into front and back of center stitch. Turn. Work 2 sts. Turn. Work 2 sts. Turn. K2tog. Continue working boobie as above.

Am I supposed to end up on the WS when I K2tog? If not, then I'm stuck because that is what's happening. Here is how I am working it:

RS - Knit into front and back of center st. Turn.
WS - Work 2 sts. Turn.
RS - Work 2 sts. Turn.
WS - K2tog

This causes me problems because it seems to me that I am now working in the wrong direction. I made the nipple in the middle of a row and am supposed to continue working that row after the nipple is completed. For example, I know I am supposed to have 5 stitches in a row, so I would work the nipple on the third stitch. Once that is finished, I thought I would end up at stitch number 4 so that I could finish that row.

I'm confused. Help me fix my nipples please.

me too! I see a peek a boob nursing tank in the archive section!
gotta see the pattern to follow along. I am not "qualified" yet to offer engineering advice, but hey, how else do we find cool patterns...?

gotta love a site where you can say nipples over and over! and yes, they can be hard to understand...hee hee

Curiosity is killing me!
Can't see the word nipple and booby relating to a quirky knitting pattern that many times and not go crazy wondering where it is!
I did look at the archives and found a hillarious "wig" pattern "Hallowig" I think I might just try out!
