Hallowe’en update #3

Wow, that was fast.

Working with Shine is like petting a kitten. It’s really, really soft.

I think Mom is right and it’s probably five stitches to the inch. I cast on 28 stitches to try it, and that’s what I’m coming up with, and it looks about right.

The instructions for row 2 of the pattern are confusing to read. “P2, repeat [yo, slip yo of previous row purl-wise (new yo lies over top of previous row’s yo), p1]. When you do it, however, it makes sense. Actually, it makes sense to slip the yo from the previous row with the yarn in front, then bring the yarn over and purl the next stitch. It all goes in one motion, and it’s feels kind of neat to do. Then what you wind up with after doing the four row repeat is knitting that looks like crochet.

Anyway, that’s what I’m going to do with it, regardless of what they wind up saying for the gauge in the errata listing.
