I've finished most of the neckwarmer. I wish I could visualize a finished project from the pattern. If I could, I wouldn't have bound off all the edges, but just left the sts live. I don't like the way the final steps are in the written pattern, so I'm picking up sts on each side, one at a time, to add a garter st border that will hopefully cure the curling. After all the work I've done on this, I'm having difficulty with figuring out a way to finish this one off. I may still frog what I've done on the edges, frog back to live sts, IOW, frog the BO sts to live sts and add the garter sts there rather than picking up sts around each side.
Found this on Ravelry this morning... Here's the artist, Clara's, blog. Isn't she cute?
A recurring theme with many knitters is "I hate grafting" and all of it's other names such as Kitchenering. I don't understand this. It is so fricking easy to do, on the needles or off them. Is that (some) knitters, in addition to being terrified of numbers (as needed for multiply sts by inches to find out the correct CO number) are terrified of anything that involves a yarn needle? It's so simple. Are you afraid or hate grafting? If so, why????
Kathleen has a beautiful lace scarf pattern on her blog!
