Halfway mark


I still don't know what I'm doing wrong on my purls - they are too loose, but I haven't been able to figure out why. I'm just happy that I can tell there are hearts in there, lol.

I'm going to try to finish this one tonight and start the footprint one tomorrow.

That looks great, AMG! You are a natural, dahling. My first knitting attempts looked nothing like that. lol

With your loose purls, make sure you are wrapping the yarn the right way around the needle. Make sure you are wrapping the yarn coutnerclockwise. It is a fairly common beginners problem to wrap it clockwise and that will make it purls looser.

Also, tension can make all the difference. You may not be pulling your purl stitches tight enough, I had that problem at first.

I *think* I'm going counterclockwise, LOL, but now I'm not sure...I did notice about 2/3 of the way through it that they got better if I pushed the finished rows toward me when I purled - I'm not sure if that makes sense - but it seemed to help.
