After many attempts to coerce friends who knit into making soakers (wool diaper covers) for Phinehas, It has become apparent there are no interested parties and I am forced to explore the world of knitting for myself...
My sister has started me out with a practice ball of yarn and the basic knit and purl. (I figured out what I was doing wrong 7 years ago when I quit learning to knit due to frustrations the first time I picked up needles!)
So this weekend I figured I was ready for my first soaker pattern.
Once again Tiffany set me up, I got the first 5 rows (ribbed k1 p1... waist band) and now I am stuck! what the heck does wl fd mean and how do I k2 together? (I understand that I am trying to make the holes for the waist string to lace through) BUT I don't know what I am doing...
so after 5 rows I am officially stuck!
I have been searching for help on-line... this is helpful but not to the point I need!
any ideas? anyone want to make me soakers? Phinehas will be 12 years old before I finish these ones!
