It's possible that you're knitting through the back loop of the stitch rather than the front loop. That will make the stitches very tight. Check out the videos again to make sure you're doing the...

Addi makes an interchangeable set. They are great, even though they are more expensive than the others. The tips never, ever come off. I love all my Addis!

I like the idea of putting as many M&M's on the table as there are rows and eating one each time you finish a row. It's a problem with kids around, though.:doh:

Don't think so--way easier to learn to purl.

I'm guessing that you knit continental and have trouble purling.

Try purling English style (yarn in the right hand). Not much different than knitting,...

You're always really knitting from right to left on every row when you read written directions. The only time you read from left to right is on a chart.

If you work each row as written, you'll get...

Many of the books I've read have come through as Amazon Daily Deals, often as low as $1.99. Found a few gems there that I may not have read otherwise.

I agree--if you're not going to wear it much anyway, steek. I imagine that you'll have to pick up stitches along the steeked edges for button bands or a edging for a zipper, just to keep it looking...

I always work 3-needle bind-off for shoulder seams, whether the pattern calls for them or not. They always looks so straight and perfect!

If it's a sloped shoulder, I work short rows rather than...

I would slip those stitches onto your needle, then bind off the 6, etc. It's hard to tell with what section you wrote, but it's seems likely that those first "slipped" stitches are the first ones...

I think that you'll find the cotton will work better since there is no stretch to make it pull it. The type of needle wouldn't really make a huge difference.

I think I would wash it as directed and lay it out to block it dry. This should even out the stitches. After that you can wash it and dry it as directed and it shouldn't need blocking again, and...

You would use any provisional cast on to have live stitches at the beginning of the pattern in order to add an edging, or perhaps make a symetrical other half of a pattern.

It says "each row" rather than "every other row", so you would do the decreases on every row, one at each end.
