I did it: I added Japanese short rows to Green Gable! How did they turn out? You'll get to see! I took pictures along the way.
The first shot is of all my pinned loops. I pinned 6 on each side, following Nona's directions. See the green stitch markers on the left and the peach ones on the right? The green ones represent the knitside turning points; the peach represent the purlside turning points.
This next picture shows a close-up view of the pinned loops on the backside of my work. They are green and therefore were done at the knitside turning points. The loops are actually between the stitches you see on the needles. At this point in my knitting I was preparing to "take care of" the stitch markers; or as Nona says, "close the gap." See the Nona link above for directions.
Here's where I had to figure out what to do about the purlside loops. If my work wasn't in the round, I could just turn it and purl up to these loops. But that's impossible now that I've already picked up the green knitside loops and am forced to continue ITR. So, I figured out a way to mimic Nona's directions. After taking care of the green knitside pinned loops, I knit around to the peach markers, stopping one short, as you can see in this picture.
I proceeded to pull the pinned loop past the 1st stitch and onto the needle, correctly mounting the stitch. This might be easier to do using your right needle tip: insert tip underneath pinned loop and place it on left needle. Whichever way you choose to do it, the pinned loop will cross behind the former 1st stitch. Now K2tog.
This last picture represent the result of the purlside Japanese short rows. I was quite pleased at the uniformity and tightness of the stitches. If I had to be knitpicky, I'd only say this: the purlside short row stitches don't lie as flat as the knitside ones. Maybe I could incorporate some twisting of stitches in the process of the K2tog? I'm definitely using Japanese short rows from now on - they look so much better!!!!!
