A particular obsession with yarn
We'll be mentally capable of obsessing over yarn into our twilight years! And as much stash as some knitters have we need all the time we can get!
I am knitting Sleepy Sam from The Knitted Teddy Bear. I saw on Ravelry that you had knitted this item. I am havinhg trouble with this pattern, which is: I am making Sleepy Sam. For the Head and Body, Side A, I am instructed to follow instructions for Ralph up to Row 52. After completing Row 47, I have 11 sts; I then Dec 1 st at end of Row 50 (I now have 10 sts).I then go to the instructions for Sleepy Sam. On Row 55, I Inc 1 st at each end of row (12 stitches). Then on Row 57 I Inc 1 st at beg of row (13 stitches). On Row 59 I cast on 3 sts at beg of row (16 sts). On Row 60 I Inc 1 st at end of row (17 stitches). On Row 61 I Inc. 1 st at beg of row (18 stitches). Finally, on Row 62 I Inc. 1 st at end of row. I have 19 stitches on my needles at this point, but the instructions say I should have 20.
