I Need Help!
Ok you experienced knitters out there...I've been knitting along just fine this morning...I'm on my second repeat of the pattern...and what do I see before my eyes? The Candle Flame pattern is starting on the WRONG SIDE! I don't know how I did that! GRRRRRRRR! I really want to find out though...because I am also working on the Irish Hiking Scarf and my cables suddenly appeared on the wrong side....I've got to find out what I'm doing wrong...THE GREAT MYSTERY!

Thanks for your help!
Merry

You must have repeated a row twice or skipped a row ... which would put you starting a purl row on the knit side or a knit row on the purl side.

Amber, I have four skeins of Lamb's Pride Bulky. Do you think that would be enough to make this shawl? And what size needle are you using? I want to start this one too.

Thanks Debbie!
Thanks Debbie...I figured that's what I had done...I made a mistake and so I thought I had frogged back to row 26 and so I started with row 27...must have done one of them twice...do you hear a frog?

Oh well, isn't this the way to learn?

I got my yarn in a 1 lb cone from Ebay - the auction says it's equivalent to 4 skeins and is about 500 yards total. That's on the low side of estimates for this shawl - I think Contiknitter was figuring on about 550-600.

For bulky weight, I'm using size 9 needles. I could only get so far on my straights, but my knitting teacher loaned me a pair of circs to get me through 'til my Options arrived.

My specific color is called Wild Violet - I love purple too, and it's going to be hard to give this one up!

The Ebay store I bought it from is called Oregon Trail Yarn and Books. Not my store, obviously! They shipped super fast too!

Amber (or anyone else!), did you by any chance save the pattern when you cut and pasted and inserted the corrections? I'm pretty new at knitting, this will be my first complicated project, and I'm worried about getting the corrections in right...

I was hoping someone would take pity on me and email me the correct pattern? Pretty please? :D

I make shawls a lot so the longer length circulars always seem to work out better for me, plus the place I'd order them from the size needle that I'm using (size 8/5mm) the price is the same for all of them, regardless of the length. I didn't figure that because I'm using a worsted weight yarn, I'm going to have to knit a lot more rows to get the same length as if I would've used the bulky weight yarn , so I'll probably wind up with a bazillion stitches on my needle by the time I'm done.

Amber, that color purple is just BEAUTIFUL!!! Where's everybody else's pics?

The line down my "flame" is looks ... different ... than everyone else. I figured out that I am slipping as if to knit instead of slipping as to purl ... I am going to just keep on doing it that way but will change if I make another one. Will post pix soon!
