Knitting Question

hmmmm. Its hard to tell with the dark color yarn, I'm guessing either you twisted the join, or possibly the cast on stitch came loose, or your join was loose. Sometimes I'll have something like that and pulling tight each row for a few rows makes it look better.

Oh PJ, I wish I could help you out, but the fact that you are knitting with 4 needles is too over-whelming for me. What are you making anyway?
I just love that photo of Nugget sleeping you posted earlier. I wonder what he is dreaming about?

Is the hole/loose stitch on the needle closest to the arrow what you're concerned about? It's pretty hard to tell with the black yarn, but I fiddled with your picture in Photoshop until I could see the yarn strands, and it looks like the tail of the cast-on just worked loose a bit. If you tug on the tail, does the hole close up? If not, you may have to work the slack back through the first row, or mask the hole with the tail when you weave in that end (which is what I do if I get this).

From what I can tell in the Photoshopped picture, it doesn't look like you twisted the cast-on when you joined to work in the round. The strands don't cross each other, there's just the hole in the first row. No biggie, and easily dealt with.

Is this the second mitten?

Considering you are talking about the loose stitch, It's just a matter of pulling a bit harder when you start. I don't bother about it to much, you can "correct" (or hide, whatever!) this when you sew in the end. I make sure then I cross the opening, pull it a little tighter and the hole dissapears.

If you think it's something else, feel free to email me! :D

Love the way you ask the question! LOL! Very creative! Sorry... but I haven't any clue...

Thanks for your nice comment on my bandstand.
