    Help with Zinnia?

    Hi, has anyone knitted the beaded bag from LK July issue? My sister is trying and has come to a part which she is stumped (i am not experienced enough): It is the row in which she has to add the large beads and is not sure what is meant by: (page 26) Next row: (RS) keeping bead colours correct as set, K5 [(pb,K1) twice, pb, K2, K2tog, K1] five times, (pb,K1) twice, pb, K3. 58 sts she has tried this row but is left with more stitch's than said? Any help would be greatful. Jo x

    Good luck with the race. I know how you feel when you don't see the parents for a long time.....when i say my mum back at easter( had not seen her for nearly a yr) she look very old, but she was in a lot of pain as she was awaiting a hip op, she has had it now, all went well so i am hoping when i see her next week she will look like a new person well not to new i might not know her It's raining again here, where is the SUMMER! >:-(
