Cast on last night...

Hello all! I finally joined y'all in this KAL. I started Clapotis last night, this one's a gift. Had a bit of a shaky start, but once my brain woke up and remembered SSK it's been good.

Question, is everyone slipping their stitches purlwise?

For the slipped stitches at the beginning of rows, yes, but for the SSK I'm slipping knitwise--that's how I learned that stitch.

Hi turtlegirl!!! Welcome!!! And while I haven't started my Clap yet, I second Carolyn's answer to the SSK question.

Turtle girl--

I finally cast on last night. Made it all the way through section one! This felt like a significant accomplishment, as I had forgotten how to do a yo.

Anyway, I learned to do SSK as a slip knitwise, slip knitwise, so that's the way I do it. At the beginning of rows, I'm slipping purlwise (in others words--what carolyn said!).

Yeah that's what I meant. At the beginning of the rows, not the SSK. I learned that as slipping knitwise too, was just curious about the slip at the beginning of each row. Thanks!
