:XX: Thank you for all the advice. I started the top and it is going pretty well except for the curling on the bottom. But I expected that since I am working in stockinet stitch. If it is still curled too much after the whole top is done, I will figure out something.
I like the zip-lock bag idea. I promised myself not to worry about the twisting. Just from time to time I do the untwisting with the zip-lock bag. Works good.
I am still on my first ball of yarn and haven't done any yarn joining. Thank you for the advice about that too. I will see what will work better.
Silveridger, I like the top you are knitting. I love seed stitch. I haven't done anything in seed stitch though. Just a scarf that is close to seed stitch and turned out perfect.
You cast on odd number of stitches and then:
Row 1: (WS) *K1, p1; repeat from * to last st, end k1.
Row 2: Knit.
Here is the top that I am knitting:
On the picture you can see that the bottom is curled but it doesn't look bad at all. Kind of cute.
You all have good day.
