I did get the Dynasty yarn for the Clap, and was so excited to start it this weekend, but after I sat down with my yarn, needles, row counter, pattern, four different spreadsheets from my Clap KAL yahoo group, "Gilmore Girls" on DVD and a nice glass of sweet iced tea, I figured out that I had no idea how to pfb. Not one clue.
So out came the knitting instruction books.
Not one of them had instructions on how to pfb.
So I got online (wonderful dialup connection) and went to knittinghelp.com. Found the abbreviations page and looked for pfb. There it was...but alas, no video.
So next I tried the Knitty Coffeeshop board, where I found a great post on the Clap pattern and links to posts discussing how to pfb. Most of them suggested looking at knittinghelp.com.
I gave up.
After all, it's not like I was lacking other projects to work on. I currently have the following on my needles:
- sand stitch dishtowel and dishcloths (housewarming gift, which I've frogged two times each - third times the charm, right?)
- dishcloth with a house pattern purled into it
- prayer shawl
- afghan from "Easy Afghans for Knitters"
- the same sand stitch dishtowel and dishcloth for me in a different colorway
So what did I do?
Started the bedjacket, of course. :-)
