OKay, to answer your question, are you supposed to turn after the k2tog?

Beld.....I knew you'd make a GRAND re-entrance!

I would bet they left out a "turn" after that last k2tog. Try turning & finishing the row & let us know how your NIPPLES are doing after that.

Silly lady!

Do you think you work it like a bobble...you could just wing it a bit until you get back to the correct side...as long as the nipple looks ok

Okay, I'm off to give my nipples a try with the advice I got from here. Julie, thank you for posting the link. I couldn't figure out how to do it on this Mac yet.

My "fix" for it had been to take out a "work 2 sts. turn" so that I only did it once and then finished on the RS with the K2tog. I'll see what the alternative suggestion is to do here in a bit. My "fix" looks okay, so if the other way makes my nipples look too gawdy, then I'll just do it my way.

Kelly, do you think I was meant to K2tog on the purl side? I thought that maybe I would put in an extra "work 2 sts, turn" and then that will put me on the knit side again to finish off with the K2tog.

I'm off to go meet a friend for some fantastic KIP action, so I'll see what she has to say about it too. She has 10 years of knitting experience, whereas I don't even have one year yet.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll keep everyone posted.

(Kelly - would you expect anything less of me?)

My conclusion on the nipple confusion...

I went to my lys lady and she said that the K2tog was supposed to be on the RS because it is meant to push that mini bobble forward. So her instructions were to turn after that and continue finishing the row. My next problem was that I had that middle stitch on my left needle, so I wasn't sure if I was supposed to knit it again or slip it. I slipped it off and then finished the row.

After figuring all of that out, I went back to doing it my own way. The nipple was a little too perky, and in a deformed kind of way, for my liking. My revision has a nice subtle perkiness and looks much better. I don't want people to think that I'm an extremist and knit "lumps" onto my breast cancer awareness boobie scarf. The idea was to encourage friendly conversation, not ram the point down their throats with overly explicit tactics.

I'll be glad when this post is worn out. Everytime my dd walks in the room she tends to doubt that I'm on a knitting site!
