booga questions
Ok, so I will follow your all advice about blowing off the dreaded twisted pick up stitch. But here are my questions...DON'T LAUGH!

I get the part about 34 rows of Garter stitch (yay!) Do I cast off before I pick up? Or when I am done with my garter stitch rows, just start picking up around the edges?

If you bound them off you'd just have to pick them up again!

I get it (after reading pattern more closely)....

Did you guys use 16 inch circulars or 24 inch circulars???? I am going to start this manana....I have 4 hours at a swim meet and the afghan from hell is getting too cumbersome to lug there.

I used 24 inch circs. I started with the 16 inch but it just felt to tight.

I used 16's; there was a lot less pulling and pushing the stitches around. BUT sometimes they fell off the end if i wasn't paying attention... or kitty decided he wanted to play with it.... :rollseyes:

Just need a clarification:

"Pick up and knit twisted ..."
Is this simply knitting through the back loop?
