1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitty dashing - I thought I'd got it.... on: December 02, 2007 07:21:39 PM
Now I'm at a lost.

Help.

First Cable Round: [CB, p1(2), k4, p1, k4, p1(2)] twice.
Work 9 rounds in Rib Pattern.

There are 13 stitches in it done twice ... is 26 stitches. But there are 21, 11, 12 stitches on the needles respectively.

What do I do?

I don't for the life of me understand. I p2, cable back, k4, p1 then work the stitches off my cable needle. Then I'm left with 18 stitches.

Help

Ok. I'm trying it
http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring07/PATTdashing.html
But.....

I'm stuck on the placing the thumb opening?
Place Thumb Opening
Next Round: Work 12[13] sts in patt, k5[6] using waste yarn; slip these 5[6] sts back to left needle and work them again, in patt, using working yarn; continue in patt to end.
Work 18 rounds in Rib Pattern.

I don't understand. I'm suppossed to work 12 stitches, knitting from my l needle to my r needle, knit 5 more the same way in wast yarn - move those 5 back to my left needle, knit them AGAIN, knitting once again from my left needle to my right needle.... and finish the row? I haven't started yet because that's throwing me off.

Help - they're a christmas present!
3  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / I'm spinning! Alpaca on a drop spindle on: September 24, 2007 12:09:43 PM
So my town (or actually the town over!) had an alpaca festival. I'd never heard of one, or even really knew what one was, I knew I'd probably be able to get fiber at a decent price.

Little did I know that Alpaca is a wonderfully soft, silky fiber. I am in love. A couple months back, I went crazy, thinking I was going to start spinning, I made myself a drop spindle, tried it (on batting that was specifically made for filling stuffed animals and the like) failed miserably and put it away.

I decided to buy some fiber, picked up a bag  and started spinning!

Pictures to come...
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What to do when you really don't want to knit.... on: September 21, 2007 06:30:30 PM
and you have to?

I want to knit dd a pair of booties/shoes right now, not a boring hat for DH. He asked me to. Knitting is so flippin slow. (Or I'm slow at it!)

On a side note - I knit a hat for dd - pic http://goodebartschidesign.blogspot.com/2007/09/heres-another-testament-to-my-extreme.html!
5  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / wool roving question on: August 15, 2007 03:45:00 PM
I bought some wool batting from West Earl Woolen Mill and now I need to know what I can do with it. *I think* it needs to be cleaned - how do I do that? It has little bits of stuff (leaves, ect) in it. Does it need to be carded? I bought A LOT - can I needle felt with it or only use it for stuffing?

ok. here are pictures.

NOT IMPORTANT (I think)
it came packaged like this

and here's the tag on the roll

and here's it unrolled (it's not like quilt batting, unrolling, it's like big fluffyness rolled up.
http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa294/familygb/tosell021.jpg

IMPORTANT!!!
here are some shots of the flecks

There are probably 3-7 pieces of stuff every square foot - not too much.

I want to use this to stuff toys and / or needlefelt. Any suggestions - what do you suggest I do and what do I need to do it?

Thanks,
