I really wanted to go to that class but couldn't make it this time around. I have the Scary Doll book so I should try to see if I remember how to do it before I shell out for the class!

That's really interesting.Looks great.Better go dig out my P G-R book. :0)

Lovely short rows you got there! I couldn't take the class as I had some other plans.

I have the scary doll book too.... Gotta go take a look.

P.S. The guild I told you about is on Tues at 7p... I will be sure to tell you when the next one is if you can't make it. (I think you told me that already.) ;-)

I love using this type of short rows. A member of my knitting guild teaches this and it makes the short rows neat and clean.

I'm currently trying this out for doing the shortrows on socks. It's working fine on the knit side of the fabric where you knit the stitch and the loop for behind. The purl side is being a pain though. I'm getting elongated stitches, and it's leaving a gap. I have to trying this again and figure out what isn't working.

I like doing toe-up socks, so I'd like to be able to use this shortrow method with them.

Have a great week there and good knitting!

Hi everyone.

Yes, this short row method is the absolute best for shaping shoulders. I hope to give some more details about it in the future.

Danny, I was thinking of trying to use it for socks but figured it might not work after reading Priscilla Gibson-Roberts' comment; "Do not stack the turns so that they are on top of each other. In order to have a smooth angle on the joining row, the individual short-row turns must be spread apart by a few stitches." When I knit socks with short-rows I use PGR's technique in her Simple Socks book.

I still don't understand how this is going to be a bad thing to use for socks. Why can't you stack the turns?
