pictures of me messing up

any thoughts?

here's another picture...

and an even bigger one.

if you look at the holes created by the yarnovers, they seem to be veering right with each row. maybe i'm just being paranoid and should have more faith in the pattern and my ability to read it correctly.

    i cant really see whats going wrong. are you sure it is wrong? the bottom does look a little twisted anyway, look at mine.. any chance you can get a clearer picture up, i just cant tell from those, sorry to be of no help :(

    i added a couple of more. did the pattern look sort of angled for ou at the beginning, or were the yarnovers lining up one right on top of the other?

    Are you slipping knitways or purlways when you do your decreases? Slipping knitways on a psso makes the decrease slant to the left, which counteracts the right slanting of the k2tog, making all the yarnover columns line up neatly. If you're slipping purlwise, then the decreases are going to make the work twist to the left.

    That's the only thing I can think of off the top of my head that would make it twist so drastically to the right. (And hopefully that explaination made sense!)

    that explanation definitely made sense. i've been slipping knitwise, though, so i'm not sure what could be up with it. it's definitely messed up, though, right?

    yep, it's definitely messed up. not sure if that will relieve you or piss you off, sorry..

    i cant see whats gone wrong at all, gah i wish i was sat next to you!

    i could do a photo step by step of the pattern row if you think it might help?

    check each step in the row -

    slip 1st knitwise onto right needle
    pass slipped stitch over


    are you definitely knitting your yarnovers on the in between rows?

    what do you mean by "knitting your yarnovers on the in between rows"?

    i'm not really pissed. i'm just glad that i caught it and didn't just keep screwing it up. hehe...

    i think i may go ahead and have my gf read the direction step-by-step to see if that helps. maybe something is getting screwed up between my reading the pattern and actually knitting it.

    also, i'm sort of dumbfounded because, well, i know how to knit, you know? i've made sweaters, socks, etc., and have dealt with lace before. i've never managed to screw up a pattern this badly before.

    i meant you're doing:

    odd rows - do pattern row;
    even rows - K entire row including knitting your yarn overs made on the previous pattern row

    i wish i was better at explaining myself!

    oh! yeah, i'm knitting the YOs. i had tinking, so i have stitch markers every few pattern repeats so that i can check the stitch counts often. i really need to figure out what i'm doing. maybe i'll post a play-by-play tonight...
