So here's a picture of one of the projects I currently have on needles! :) The yarn is Caron Simply Soft in a color called "Baby Brights Ombre." It's very springlike and light in color, as you can see. This will eventually - hopefully - be an oversized sweater for my mom. I can't guarantee that it'll turn out, because it's the first time I've made anything with sleeves, and I'm not actually following a pattern because really, why would I do that? :) The bottom is ribbed, as you can see, in k2 p2, and the rest is stockinette stitch.

As long as I'm here, though, I have a question for you all. I've apparently dropped a stitch or something in one spot, and then I guess picked it back up again in the next row, because I have a very neat little hole that looks like this:

Any suggestions on how to fix that? (Other than cover it with an applique, which is what I did on my frog bag LOL.)

Also, you guys need to post some pics! I want to see what you all are doing!!!!

FWIW that looks like an accidental increase, possibly from an accidental yarn over, to me - if you look at the front picture, you've got two stitches, then they separate around the hole, and in the next row those two stitches are separated by an extra stitch which then carries on up.

This kind of thing happens to me all the time because I'm lazy and when I make an error like this and don't notice it for a couple of rows I just shrug and keep knitting. I usually just darn it when I'm done - flip it to the back and run some yarn over and around the hole a few times. Or you could just leave it - it's not in any danger of running, as far as I can see.

Agreed. I would also just darn it later if it were noticeable. Useful skill to develop. ^_^
