1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Summer Stashbusting projects on: June 26, 2006 11:05:51 AM
I have a bunch of random skeins of yarn - mostly different types of DK weight

Most stashbusting projects assume that you have a lot of different yarn that all goes together perfectly - but I always have random colours!

Anyway I feel guilty working on mittens or something so does anyone have any ideas for summer stash busting projects?

Not allowed to buy any new yarn!

I was wondering if anyone has any idea what the lace stitch in this sweater is called (looks pretty easy but I have no clue what its called)? A pattern for it would also be awesome!

Thanks! Cheesy

I've been working on this pattern, Simplicity  5006 its going OK but I just cannot seem to get the boning sewn on to the bust or curvy side bit nicely  Sad  Does anyone have any tips for working with non-straight sems? (sorry if im not using the right lingo)

ive already sewn all the pieces together and the boning is between the 2 layers of fabric, its  the topstitching the boning bit that im having trouble with

What are you using for boning?

Just Rigilene Polyester Boning, i havent had any problems putting it in the areas that lay flat

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / looking for nice DK polo neck jumper on: July 19, 2005 09:41:48 AM
I got some gorgeous green Rowan DK yarn off ebay planning to use it for a cardigan, however now that I see the colour I think it would be nicer as a sweater, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a nice DK pattern for a polo neck (or any nice sweater), maybe something with a little cabling or intresting detail and preferably a pattern that includes a 32" size

A free online pattern would be great, but even if its just a recommendation in one of the Rowan books or something, that would be great too

Thanks a lot Cheesy

This is my Brioche Stitch Hat.  It was definitely really challenging.  I think that the description of how to do the stitch in the book is not very good, because I had to rip out my first attempt at it about ten rows in.

I know you posted this ages ago but this hat is fabulous! What yarn did you use? I love the colours
