Knitting Night...

Or should I say ripping night.

I was further along on my tank before I left to go knitting than I am now. This short row thing has got me bummin. I'm not liking how it is looking. So I ripped out what I had done for a second time and looked at some books to see some different techniques. I gave up(I'm more of a visual person than a reading comprehension person) and went home a bit earlier than usual. I was upset. I'll have a go at it tomorrow, my head was starting to hurt. i think i might write the designer again and ask for some close up pictures of her tank and short row shaping. Who knows maybe I'll just keep going and in the end I'll end up liking it. Maybe its a design element:) hehehe. Well I've got to work in the morning and i should go to bed, but i think i might do some work on something simple... i think the scarf is calling my name.

Happy knitting to all and to all a good night!

It took me awhile to catch on to short rows too. Did you see these instructions on Knitty? (summer 03; under articles; written by Bonne Marie - ChicKnits).

Just keep at it, it will all work out in the end, a good idea to do something else for a bit then get back to the problem item
