It took almost an hour to wind 3 cakes of this . we need not revisit the merino incident (see below).I casted on using the Knitted cast on.This stuff is like a dream it is so soft it has fibers coming out and I cant even describe it . This is the nicest yarn I have ever worked with.I was not crazy about the color in the store but once they started winding it I was like under its spell, it is like a pink cloud to look at, and a pillow to touch. LOL at any rate I started the seed stitch and saw where my cast on stitches were uneven so only knitted about 20 stitches and also I had forgot to Sl the first stitch.So I went to the frog pond with it.Pulling to fast caused a you know what right? LOL It came undone pretty easy But I think I will have to be very careful with the stitches as it would be a bear to have frog a bunch of it. I am glad I did it and am going to see if I can get a better tension cast on done tomorrow has any body else decided how they are going to cast on ? it really is a pretty color and it might be nice to find a forest in a rose bud!!
I am getting ready to go to the frog pond again with the stole LOL 142 st. instead of 141 I was puting st. markers every 10 st. when I noticed it. I was on row 5 and I am not sure these nickle plated needles are the best. they are very slippery I may go get some bamboo of course all I have are 3.5 and I need 3.25 LOL another reason to go to the yarn store.
ok bamboo straights are in my possesion, they didnt have any circs in stock so will cast on again to see what these are like.At the rate I am going it may be march 1st before I get started !!
Update; Why didnt someone say Linda, that is not the seed stitch!! LOL looking at the picture, and saw this reread instructions and have started over.....wheres that little emotion guy with his little eyes rolling around in his head!
