Why do my stitches look like this?
They look twisted but they aren't. Is it something about the yarn? It's Dona from Fibra Natura which is 100% extra fine merino superwash. Or could it have something to do with me knitting from the outside of the skein instead of from the inside?
Both yarns are Dona but the red looks worse than the white. And, when I stretch the knitting then let it snap back into place, the white fixes itself but the red stitches don't?
Why is it doing that?
I'm knitting stockinette in the round on dpns, US5's if that matters. Wooden dpns and yarn in my left hand, to be thorough.
I've knit on it over several days and with various degrees of tiredness and/or frustration, and with and without alcohol in my system.
Those weird, twisted looking, not flat knit stitches persist throughout. Why?
On a happier side note, the hospital now has my records and faxed them to my doctor minutes before the office closed yesterday. I had to contact the hospital administrator and mention that my family, including extended family members who work in the medical field, all thought I should be filing a complaint with the state medical board and/or contacting an attorney in order to get them sent to my doctor. But I called and confirmed the records made it to the doctor's office. Yay!!
I didn't tell y'all the whole story but it was a whopper. It was such a whopper, I'm not sure the Administrator believed me. For now, I'm going to keep the story to myself but if a single other thing goes wrong, boy, you will hear me shouting about it from the rooftops and on every social media platform I can find.
Meanwhile, thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers for my health. They were/are very much appreciated.
