Ok I need to catch up! I have been so busy I forgot to tell you Barb what a great job you have done conquering a sweater and lace it looks great. I am looking forward to seeing yours and Nina's again when they are all done and blocked.

Cool.. there you go.. .I have to still finish my first...

Then I have no clue what to do.. Bonnie said I should practice on a scarf.. (lace) but I forgot which one she said I should do... never got lace right..

I was reading another post that gave a link to a blog.. called...

IT takes balls to knit.com This guy has an 88 row repeat cable ... I just think about doing something like that and I just cringe!!!

I think it is called "the berkshire cable" .. how appropriate, eh? Gorgeous and hard to get to...

Should we try that?? I can't get simple K1P1 rib to go right....

I'm stuck. I need Bonnie.

Here's where I'm stuck:

Next row forms center front of sweater: turn, and with right side facing and using cable cast on method, cast on 39 sts for center front. do not turn work.
K across sts of right front (right=right side of sweater as worn) and right sleeve without increasing.
Place a different color marker to designate this as beginning of rounds from here on.
Next round: *K1, yo, K to 1 st before next marker, yo, K1.* Repeat between * around, joining the round.
K 1 round without increases.

OK! here is my confusion: after I purl the last row and get to to these instructions, I put 39 sts on my left needle. How do i continue knitting the right front without turning? Not sure how to do this. Or am I just over thinking it?

I have no clue.. but.. maybe it's a short row? but even that would be turned???!!!

Is there anything left after you CO 39sts? from before?

Weird.. is it backward knitting???

Am I making you further confused???

How about just following exactly as written and worry about it when you hit it... sometimes I don't get it.. but if I do exactly as written then the lightblub goes off as I work it..

I just looked at the pattern and I am probably wrong but the next instruction after that one you join it and knit in round this is probably why you don't turn....( maybe)

I'm tinking out the row I did because I'm sure it is wrong. I need to think on this one, or wait for Bonnie to come to the rescue!

Ok, I couldn't sleep. Not sure if it's because I slept so much when I got home from the hospital yesterday or if it's because I couldn't stop thinking of this sweater. I just don't get it. The last row before the add on stitches says purl. If I do that then I'm purling the right side. I am so confused. Unless that purl row is just the last purl row as in #7. But then when I add the stitches and knit back without turning I'd be knitting the left side instead of the right side of the sweater. I see this when I hold the stitches so it's top down. Where oh where am I going wrong! (6:45 AM and I need a drink!)
