Knit Your Library - Week 2
I have tried over and over to start the Almond Comfit....I've read the notes on Rav projects, but I can't wrap my head around it...
"Using Figure 8 method cast on 12 stitches, 6 on each needle.....K6, turn
Row 1(RS):sl5 wyib, k1, yo, k1 p5"
My problem is the first part...some people have used Judy's Magic cast-on and said it has helped...but I knit those first 6 stitches and I'm at the end of that row...and I don't know how to get to the other six stitches to start Row 1...because it's on a circular...and the cable is at that end, and if I turn like it says, I have a long float on the other side.......so just don't quite get it...but I know it must work out, because 96 other people on Ravelry have gotten it....*sigh* I may start it on dpns and see if that helps...
