Danica
I started Danica today---three times. I just can't seem to get it right. Is there anyone that thinks they could help me out? I got through the base triangles okay I think. As I see it, my first problem was where I began the left edge triangle--the first time that you start to use the CC color. Where I joined it in, I get that ugly row of half MC half CC stitches...is it supposed to be like that? In the picture I don't see anywhere that has that...
Assuming that was all that was wrong there, my next problem was at the center square. It almost seems like I have an extra stitch or something--it's hard to explain...it's almost as if my CC color didn't come all the way to the edge of the MC triangle I was working up against so they don't look "even"...does that make sense? I don't know how to figure out what I did wrong and I don't want to just give up. I have my SNB tonight and I plan to take it with me but I'm not sure that any of the knitters there are experienced enough to help. The only one who is very experienced usually doesn't come to our Monday night group...Suggestions? Should I just start over and see if it works itself out?

I haven't made this, but you'll always see where the two colors join on the back. On the knit side, you'll see a smoother transition. Is the problem on the back? If so, it's not a problem. Other than that, I can't really give you advice on the size or 'extra' stitch. It might be worth continuing just to see what happens.

It's weird Ingrid...at one place I can defiantely see a smooth transition on the RS but then at another section--I can see where I joined colors. It almost seems like I was a row off but then my stitches match up. I started over tonight at my SNB but did more talking than knitting so I'm about to get back to work on it and see what happens. At first I thought I was doing it wrong but I made myself keep going and the "problems/weirdness" worked itself out so perhaps the extra stitch will too. We'll see--I'll let you know how it goes...I did start over but I just cut the yarn and kept the part that I had already done so I could look back at it for reference. If All else fails, I'll post pictures of it along with the pattern to see if anyone can be of further help. This is the first time I've done Enterlac..

That's a good idea to save it. I know Amy made this, but I'm not sure who else.

I just dug mine out and and its a smooth change in the color... its been so long since I've looked at this thing I'll have to do a few rows to be of any help.. but I don't have the ugly row you mentioned...let me see if at nap time today I can get a chance to work on it... the center looks even to me looks like its set up right...

ok I got some time today to work on this and I had to rip mine out lol I couldn't find my paper with all my notes.. anways I think I know what might be going on.. when I first PUsts today I forgot to PU them up purlwise to start with.. and then after I fixed that I noticed some of the other color was showing more than the cc.. so I took it back out and noticed that when I PU some of the sts I went through the first 2 bars on the side of the base.. but other times I had went below those 2 bars and picked up more or my MC.. I don't know how to word it so I PU only the sts going down the base checkings o often to make sure I didn't enter the hole below those two.. I tried to get good photos but for some reason my camera is taking fuzzy photos today.. I hope nothing is wrong with it.. Not sure if you can tell what I mean or not...

sort of???

I started over...again...and I am taking it very slow, step by step. So I've just finished this part:

Base Triangles:
Using MC, CO 20 sts.
Row 1 [RS]: K2.

Row 2 [WS]: Sl 1, p1.
Row 3 [RS]: K3.
Row 4 [WS]: Sl 1, p2.
Row 5 [RS]: K4.
Row 6 [WS]: Sl 1, p3.
Row 7 [RS]: K5.
Row 8 [WS]: Sl 1, p4.
Row 9 [RS]: K6.
Row 10 [WS]: Sl 1, p5.
Row 11 [RS]: K7.
Row 12 [WS]: Sl 1, p6.
Row 13 [RS]: K8.
Row 14 [WS]: Sl 1, p7.
Row 15 [RS]: K9.
Row 16 [WS]: Sl 1, p8.
Row 17 [RS]: K12.
Repeat Rows 2-16 once more.

Next Row [RS]: K10. Break yarn.

now I'm read to move on to the center triangles. Here's my question...should I have one stitch still left on the left needle when I finish these directions? Everytime I've done it I have a stitch left on the left needle. I just want to make sure that I haven't done anything wrong up until this point.

I am determined to make this scarf for dh but I am already getting a little frustrated...

Hey Cristy!!

No you shouldn't .. when you work the first Rep of R1-16 you work the first 9 sts but then you K12 on Row 17 which sets you up to work the last 10 sts... When you work Row 16 on the 2nd repeat you should have worked 9sts leaving one.. so when you work the following row of K10 this puts all the sts on your right needle and ready to start your center square.. you don't turn your work you leave it on the Purl side and PU your sts going down the base Purl wise..

AArg...I'll try again. I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing wrong but I'm determined to figure it out. I'll pull it out and start over--I always use the long-tail cast-on and I knit continental(don't know if that makes a difference...shouldn't) so when I do that--that very first stitch kind of looks like two on the needle. I wonder if I've been treating them as separate stitches? That would be odd b/c I've never done that but maybe I am...I'll start over again and see what happens. Thanks for the help--I'm sure I'll ask for more in a bit!
