Allegra, it sounds like you are doing great--after having knit the ((entire)) sweater you'll know what to do with the hem!!
:thinking: I'm getting close to the hemming (knitting it on). I knit 5 and purled on row 6---should I pick up stitches on row 11 or 12. I'm beginning row 11 now, and doesn't quite look like there are enough rows to match the stitches?
