what's this about the joining row??

I have been hearing people stress about the joining row, and working it on three needles. There is no reason to work the joining row on three needles. I work it on five or even six if I have an extra laying around. I worried that somewhere in the editing, the pattern had changed to require a knit-on-three-needles row, but that is really not the case. I think either a) some people are misinterpreting the instructions or b) I am misinterpreting the stress.

So I made a thread here to discuss it:

knucks joining row: don't do it on three needles.

I feel bad that poor Tonya has disappeared from our KAL and the stars are not being kept up, etc. I'm not officially a moderator of this blog, so there is nothing I can do. If you want to have more real-time chat about this pattern, go ahead and come over to my forum. Bring your photos!

There have been serious problems with Blogger lately. That could be a problem as well.

I'm not criticizing Tonya, I'm actually a bit worried about her!

Hi, Pamela. First of all, i'm Brazilian and my english isn't really good, but please try to understand me!! I saw your knucks at the knitty.com and i'm SO in love with them! Sadly, i can't understand a word of the pattern. Would you send me the most simple pattern you have? Maybe i'll understand then.. who knows? I just really want to knit one!

my email is marina-marquess@hotmail.com and i'll really appreciate if you send me something!
Thanks, anyway! =)

Hmmm, I haven't really had any probs doing it with 3 needles... It's a bit fiddly at first, but then the next row I divide the stitches between 4 needles to continue.

I've been emailing her to join since last fall and never got a reply, maybe she no longer has access to the internet or something?
