So it's been awhile since I mentioned this swatch :
I thought I had the duplicate stitch thing all figured out. I mean, sure, it was a little ratty, but I did it while watching TV, so the real deal was bound to turn out better, right?
Wrong. OK, maybe I'm jumping the gun here, but this looks like crap. I'm going to take it out and re-do it, but first I'm trying to figure out just what the heck I'm doing wrong. I'm using this tutorial as my guide, and as far as I can tell I'm doing it right..... (except that some people claim that my stitches are twisted, no-one can tell me how to fix that, )
Gack. I'm knitting another swatch, will update later. If you spot some glaringly obvious thing that I'm doing wrong, by all means PLEASE speak up @__@
