    Excellent advise Busy. I don't know if you have joined one shoulder or two. I have done similar things and I would say it's best no matter what they say to only join one,that means it's a lot easier to get around a neck and if you don't have circulars(sometimes the case) should cause less problems. I think there are quite a few ways to pick up and knit. sometimes I just pick them up like little holes instead of proper stitches. is it in stocking stitch? I wanted to do that vest and I know what you mean I had problems with that stupid Evie pattern. I ended up wasting it totally. Busy is probably right and I think she has given a far more through explanation. Also I'd go on Yout ube video jug or instructables even when you have donea thing a load of times you might just have forgotten a tiny step(especially if you are good knitter and it sounds like you are!) ps hope that ddn't sound patronizngI have often been reduced to near tears by this matter.

    Thanks I have been meaning to read some of the new wave of knitting related fiction so I'll keep an eye out as I haven't read friday night knitting club either. Isn't it going to be a film? maybe went straight o Dvd? Hope not.
