|lindyflash||07:23 pm - Hello all|
I know I just posted, but felt it prudent to introduce myself! I am Ashley. I currently am a nursing student,grow orchids, knit, and swing dance every friday. Pleased to meet you.
I have started a scarf project with a red heart sympony worsted medium yarn in moss green. My question is...how does one keep the scarf from rolling? I am knitting a row and purling a row. I cannot seem to keep it fro rolling up, and I am on the verge of pulling it all out and starting over. Any advice would be much appreciated!
Current Mood: frustrated
Current Music: the pleasant clicking of needles

BEHOLD THE WONDERFULLY EVIL WORLD OF STOCKINETTE STITCH!!!
It'll always curl, you can steam iron it and it may flatten out some, but it's not likly. You could do something to the edge, most likely garter stitch, which is knit every row (that would read Row 1: knit all Row 2: Knit 5 (or any number you fancy for a border); purl until 5 stitches remain (or whatever number); knit 5)
If I remember right, that is a fuzzy-ish yarn your using, so you may also get away with just knitting every row (garter stitch) it's not as smooth on the right size as stockinette stitch, but doesn't show up with fuzzy yarn.
I wanna do swing dancing!! O.O Is is as violent as I've heard?? XD
Thanks for the advice...I think I shall have to unfurl it and start anew. I was hopeing to do something other than basic stockingette, but I fear I may be force to resort to boring. At least the yarn is wonderfully fuzzy!
Swing is not violent. Those who say it is don't really know what it is. check out www.pensacolaswing.com for more info.

Would the seed stitch show off the lovely fuzziness of the yarn? That is at the moment the most important aspect of this project?
