I lost a good hour or so trying to figure out how a yrnfrn and a yon are different from a yo and illustrations to show how they each go. Godddammmit. You think the Rowan people would list ALL the abbreviations in the back of the book, but no. Finally I figure out they're all really the same, just different b/c of the knits and purls that surround 'em. Thanks to one of the online help sites with pics.
But here we go as of midnight last night. It's weird to knit a hat NOT in the round, but I think this will turn out pretty well. It needs pressing so the bumps turn into flat lace -- it'll be tight today, with plans and girls, but another late night should do it!
