1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Potentially crazy idea...knitting 2 fingerless gloves at once? on: August 23, 2010 11:05:09 AM
I have never done it, but I have a friend who has. The only thing I can really think of is doing it so that the stitches are divided evenly with the part where the thumb gussets will be along one cable rather than where they are split, if that makes sense?

I cast on a Multnomah in Blue Moon Fiber Arts sport BFL. It's a lovely blue/gray/green/teal color. It's a mill-end, but I think it is Typhoon Tina. Hopefully I can pull off wearing it =D If not, I have a lovely friend who can!

So I love all the shawl patterns out there, but I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of lady. I don't really do 'girly'. My normal day is an old navy t-shirt and a pair of jeans with Crocs or Docs.

What do you wear with a pretty lacy shawl? Do you wear them as an every day sort of thing, or only when you dress up? I am having a hard time visualizing myself wearing one, but I really want one.

Is it painted, or iron on?
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: First time crocheting on: March 10, 2009 10:32:55 AM
I would suggest relaxing while you crochet. When I first started, I was always very tense and held the needle too night. Also, nexstitch.com has some great videos.
Another thing is that finding a pattern that uses double crochet usually ends up with less-pointy results because it is a more open stitch.

This type of may not be the specific style you are going for, but the basic crown that she uses for all her hats is a double crochet style that turns out wonderfully. I used to just use her crown, and then double crochet all the way down to make a simple beanie.

Hope that all helps!

Did you use a pattern for the first one? I really like the stitch combination.

Thanks!

I love Jared Flood patterns too. This is the first one I have tried. I am thinking about doing a tweed Habitat, but I am not sure I am quite ready for the cables. I love the outcome of cables, but I can almost feel my blood pressure rising just thinking about it!

The rainbow is Noro Silk Garden, it is a subtle self-striping yarn. It only took about 1/3 of a skein, there are about 4 or 5 more colors in the skein. I am thinking about a calorimetry or another striped hat.

I originally started this hat for my mum, but I am not sure if she'll be into it. She's more a white oxford shirt lady than a funky rainbow stripe lady. I used Paton's Classic Merino (Natural Mix) and  Noro Silk Garden (279). This was the first time I have used circular needles  successfully, I just used a 16 in. no. 7 as God intended. I figured I'd give it a go before I tried magic loop or 2 circs. I loved it, but I wasn't too thrilled when I had to switch back to DPNs because I realized my no. 7's were otherwise occupied in a beret I am knitting, so I finished up the crown on no. 6's.
