Huggable Hedgehog - hit a bump already
I am stuck, already. I am only 13 rows in and already confused. I posted this in the KAL section but I am impatiently sitting here waiting and patience is not my strong suit. Please help!

Okay, so I have been knitting 5 and then w&t and then I think I got up to row 12 (sidenote: how do you keep track?, I have heard of 'stitch markers'? what are they and where can I get one?).

So now my hedgie looks like this:

So now it says "LEGS" and I have to knit 4 stitches for 9 rows, which is fine, but am I doing this right? What the heck is the bit I just knitted?
(I am one of those people who needs to visualise it or see it as I go . So I knit 4 stitches from this bit?... or am I on the wrong row and need to go to the other end and start working on 4 stitches from that end?

As for keeping track of rows, I've started using this trick out of Elsebeth Lavold's [u]Viking Knitting Patterns[u]. Just run a contrast color yarn up the side (mine's about 2 stitches in) and change from front to back every so many rows. Every time it changes you've done 5 rows (or whatever number). This is also good for tracking pattern repeats, inc., dec., etc.

Hi Sheldon

Oo - er - I just don't know whether to be glad or sad that you've been bitten by the knitting bug - but if things go pear-shaped on this site and it doesn't get fixed because you just can't put down the stix, well, we'll all know who to blame

All the Best

Ellie

OMG! I'm so sorry - I didn't read your name properly and I thought Amy's hubby had started knitting .

You must have wondered what the hell I was on about - fixing the site if it went pear-shaped, etc.,

I really must get my eyes checked (soon).

Sincere apologies.

Ellie

Ellie, don't worry about it, I am used to being mistaken for one of the important people *grin*

cspooks: thanks for the tip

ritaw: thank you, see you in the KAL!!
