so, after spending 3 hours at knit new york today, i've remembered why i haven't tried knitting from a pattern lately... it is incredibly discouraging if you can't figure it out. in the pattern i've chosen (hand warmers), there are k2tog/yo's, this part i figured out with the help of my little blackberry and i made it about 10 rows in when i got to the part where i'm supposed to be forming a thumb and it tells me to knit, working (k1,p1,k1,p1) into yo.

i must have harassed this lady (charlene) about 5 times before i felt guilty asking so many questions considering the woman does get paid to teach people these things. needless to say, i've managed to mess it up because i do not in fact, have a hole for the thumb.

i can figure out k2tog, yo 4 times, ssk, knit to end of round but i cannot figure out how i am supposed to knit and pearl the same stitch the equivalent of 4 times. anyway, i've put down my hand warmer and picked back up my kerchiff that i'm making because at least, i know how to make it.

if there is someone out there who can tell me how i'm supposed to knit, working (k1,p1,k1,p1) into yo... please help.

feeling slightly discouraged,
