I wish I could knit. But seriously, I think it's beyond me. Those kind of skills always get me tied up. Literally!

How are you doing on the Artisan Belt in the Chicks with Sticks book? I need some serious help on getting that slip stitch edge right. I know in a slipped stitch there should be a bar, but mine ends up looking like an error. Have you worked that pattern yet? If so, pointers? I've been looking all evening for videos on multiple slip stitch patterns to no avail.

Can't wait to watch this unfold! I just got the book myself. I'd love to see your progress on the Artisan Belt, too. I haven't started it, but I'm trying to figure out how - if the rolled edges are created by slipping stitches - are they getting a rolled edge on the end of the belt...?
