1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cable pattern question... on: August 01, 2008 11:02:10 PM
http://www.vogueknitting.com/node/476

I want to use the above cable for a hat, but I'm wondering if Vogue made a typo on the 7-st RPC.  Shouldn't it be sl *4 st to cn?  I've been knitting a while, but cables still confuse me at times.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Soon to be frogged, but cute at the moment on: July 12, 2008 11:45:59 PM
I love the book Hip Hats & Cool Caps but I vowed not to buy any new yarn until I got rid of what I already had.  So, I had a single ball of this 100% wool that was closest to worsted, but had different weights.  This is the result of what should have been the Soldier hat:



I kinda like it, but after I added the brim, I realized that I should just use a different yarn because it was more of a glorified beanie.



O well.  It will probably be frogged and turned into a Pithy hat (o so typical) but I just wanted to share.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Citrine Skirt Yarn Replacement on: July 12, 2008 04:56:39 PM
So, I finally have cleared out a good portion of my UFOs and I have an pattern from and old issue of Interweave Crochet that calls for Gedifra Fashion Trend Fino Stripe.  That is the "Citrine Skirt" from Fall 2006, I think.  The problem is that the yarn is discontinued and I can't seem to find a good replacement with the same beautiful change in color.  Any suggestions?

So, I finally have cleared out a good portion of my UFOs and I have an pattern from around 2005 that calls for Gedifra Fashion Trend Fino Stripe.  The problem is that the yarn is discontinued and I can't seem to find a good replacement with the same beautiful change in color.  Any suggestions?
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Great Adirondack Yarn Co. Sonata - What is the gauge and/or where can I find it? on: November 26, 2007 11:38:55 AM
I want to try the crochet loom and the following pattern seemed like a good place to start:

The only problem is that I can't find the Great Adirondack Yarn Company's gauge for Sonata.  Any suggestions?
6  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Coriolis Socks by Cat Bordhi Anyone? on: October 10, 2007 01:05:13 AM

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 1st completed project(s) - I've gone cozy crazy! on: October 01, 2007 09:31:26 PM
So, these are my first completed crochet projects.  It all started with the birthday present from my boyfriend... I finally got an iPod.



This led to him pointing out that I promised a knit DS case over a month ago.  So, in stash busting, the DS case was born.



Of course, when babysitting the little girl you taught to knit, who just happens to have a case-less pink Nintendo DS Lite, I had to make one last little pink cozy.  I got the Lucite button from my great aunt's stash when she passed, so it was a more personal touch.



The pink yarn and the multi used for the iPod were picked up at a stash busting swap in Brooklyn months ago.  If anyone can tell me what they are, that would be awesome!

So, have I done the hookers proud?
