much ado about...knitting?

I love the way the web makes communities visible, that you had no idea even existed. Case in point: web goddess Amy's new blog threaded thoughts, where you can discover just how deep the rabbit hole goes...into extreme knitting, purling and the arcana of the fiber arts.

I frogged the extra two rows as well as the row where I should have increased originally, and then did it again.

Back to starting the fair isle. Quickly I run into two things. First, with the number of stitches I have, the pattern won't be centered or symetrical as written, which seems odd. And, the repeat of 6 doesn't work properly with the number of stitches I have since they aren't divisible by 6.

So, you can't just read the pattern left to right on the purl side.

Amy, I tried running this through babelfish, eep it didn't help ;-) But a warm welcome to the neighbloghood anyway! Now if you can just get Megan blogging we'll really be in good shape. You've got MT running, so how hard can it be?

Imagine my surprise. I stop in at Fred's House for my daily philosophical mobility read, and I find myself a subject. But, I check the date and find that, oh no, I actually got noticed the day before I found enough hands-not-holding-screaming-baby time to start transforming the look-and-feel of my site. Presentation, presentation, presentation. Goes right along with content, content, content. So, take another peek - you might find the on-the-road image familiar. (Shhh.) Thanks for the welcome.
