color work in crochet. it's driving me nuts. i'm putting a 3 color vertical stripe in the back of a hat and i can't get it to line up straight. i was told that it probably won't. is that true? 4 inches had to b ripped out of the back of my rebecca sweater. i lost a stitch some kind of way. so i ripped out all of my work and started over. looks like my end of the month deadline will b a "before i go to new york" deadline. i've got a lot of work to do. i bought the crocheter's companion. it'll b very handy. i may need to buy it's mate.
