Question about blocking..???


So, I have started the SC, and well, I used the pm's that I had.
I think they are too big....lol...
So, I have holes.
Will these go away when I block? or should I Frog and
start over using smaller pm's?
Thanks
Tasha

quick question: do you think your marker is causing that hole? or is that hole occurring where you have an increase? It's possible you need to change the way you are increasing. if you are increasing there by picking up the bar between stitches and making a new stitch, that is what is causing the hole. Nancy Wiseman has some great tutorials in her book Finishing Techniques. I've also written a of sorts from when I was knitting Lady E and was getting those holes, on how to increase by picking up the stitch below the next stitch (or previous stitch depending on which way you want it to slant). Voila, no hole)

I am using the Kfb to do my increases.

That doesn't look ... quite right. A shot from the front would be helpful, but that almost looks like a yo to me...

Well, I think I am gonna frog it...lol...try it again, using a smaller pm. Hopefully that will fix the problem. UG lol

Yeah. It does look like a yo. You could rip it, or you could make it a design feature

Yes, it looks like you must have had those huge plastic rings in and that your tension is tight.

It could also be that you are doing something other than the traditional Kfb, which does create a jig, but not a hole.

If you are wondering if you are doing Kfb correctly, you could Google it, or look it up in a stitch dictionary or even request an explanation in this forum. I'm sure many people would love to lend a hand!
