I'm not sure why but it is fun to see how many more olives will be in those jars every time I check your blog

I love those olives! I had a question about your cherry pattern? 6 stitches then knit one row, split between 3 needles, knit 1, kfb and then I get lost.. repeat at k1, does that mean I knit around the needles until I reach the first stitch? Sorry, I'm still not good at reading patterns.

I'm glad you're having fun seeing my olives Marissa. I've been having fun doing it all year! :)

Hi soapymoose :)

When a pattern says something like...

*k1, kfb; repeat from *

It usually means to work those instructions until the end of the round/row. When you see that in any of my patterns, that's what it means. :)

So in the example you mention, you would have 2 sts on each needle. If you k1, kfb you would then have 3 sts on a needle and 2 sts on each of the 2 needles that haven't been knit from yet. On the next needle you would again k1, kfb and do the same thing for the last needle. After completing that round you would have increased your overall number of sts from 6 to 9.

Hope that made sense.

Yes, that makes sense now. Thank you! :)

I just found your blog through another blog and saw your panda toast, then I was like, "hey! how does she have my panda toast?!" we're toast twins!

Hi Marshall P,

Yup, my panda toast is my own. I've had the toaster for years and years now. :)
