Sock math drives me nutty I may have to invest in the sock wizard or ask for it for Christmas/b-day ( which is Jan 9th)

I have two questions:
  1. I have about half of two skeins left (147 yards/full skein) and still have the hood and edges to do. Should I order more yarn?
  2. The last row before BO on my sleeves should be the cable ros. Should I cable or skip it?
ETA: I found another 3/4 skein! YAY!
I skipped the cable. I hope that was the right thing to do. I can always re-do the BO if it's not.

Now I have another question:
On the hood, after the pickup row, it says
"Work charted sts in patt, pm, purl to next cabled section, pm, work in patt.
Note: you can cont the cable onto the hood or cease work cable patt until hood measures X from shoulder."
Is it talking about the BACK cable or the side cables or what?

The cable that travels up the Front edges is the cable that now travels up and over the hood near your face. Later you will pick up stitches for the ribbing around the hood and down the fronts.

BTW...I seamed my hood together at the top edge BEFORE picking up stitches for the ribbing. Then you are doing ALL THE RIBBING for both fronts and the hood all in one giant swath...and you won't have an ugly seam at the top edge of the hood. It will be seamless.

I didn't' end my sleeve caps with a cable either. It would be a big lump. Not good. You did right!

Oh and whatever you do...DON'T bring the double-wide cable from the BACK up into the hood. It will unnecessarily suck up extra yarn...and IMHO...it kinda looks like the back of an alien's head...like from Star Trek. That's just my opinion...for what it's worth...about 2 cents.
A lot of folks like the modification and did it!


IMO: Knit the back of the hood in plain st st like the pattern says. "Less is more" so the saying goes.

Oh good! I'm so glad I did it right! Is it going to be kind of floppy around the back of the neck edge with no BO?

I DO like the idea of seaming the hood first. Makes perfect sense to me!

Dollyce, I have another question:
Once I'm done knitting the hood, would it work to fold it in half and do a 3 needle BO?

As I recollect...that's what I did...the 3 needle bindoff...if not...then I did the mattress seam. Either one is a perfect seam.

Sorry to keep asking questions, but I have an idea and I want to run it by you:
My 3 needle BO row is just past my cable row. So I don't have a big gap with no cables and so I don't have two cable twists right next to eachother, would it work to do the cable on ONE side and not the other?

I'm SO close to running out of yarn! I hope I make it!

I ended each repeat about 4 rows past the cable...which is worked on a row 3. So I ended the repeat with row 6's. I like the transition.

Here is a view of the top of my hood:


pencil marks the seamline:

Thanks!
I'm running out of yarn, so I can't add more rows. I think I have enough yarn for a few rows of ribbing.

One more question:
Do I pick up three stitches for every four rows or two for every three (about)?
Thanks so much!!!

ETA:
I knit the first and last stitch of every row like you suggested, and I'm having a really hard time picking up stitches. How do I tell what's a stitch? ANy tips?
