1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Moon River Socks on: March 15, 2008 01:30:19 PM
I'm trying to knit one pair of socks per month.  So far, I'm on track and here is my most recent pair--The Moon River Socks.  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/moon-river-socks  Had a hard time taking a good photo of the lovely cable.

The Hazel Knits artisan sock yarn is really wonderful.

Bought the yarn at Stitches West in the spring, finally finished this pair.  Loved the pattern, loved the yarn--Shelridge Farms.  Sorry this pic is ginormous, can't figure out how to size it here.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / tips for knitting with seasilk? on: August 29, 2007 07:13:44 AM
I have attempted the Montego Bay scarf (from IK) 4 times and I find I am having all kinds of trouble with my seasilk sliding off the needles.

Though I have knit more difficult knit projects in the past, I have used wool and Addis with no problem.  The seasilk isn't working so well with my Addis.  It's sliding off, I'm dropping stitches, etc.  Sad

I tried to switch to wood (my Clovers) and though it was better, it was still tricky. 

Any suggestions? I am starting to wonder if I should pick up the Addi lace or maybe I need to the other way and get better wood? Rosewood? 

I am so desperate here since I luuuuurve the seasilk and I really want to have a great project experience with it.  Thanks in advance for any advice.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / desperately seeking 1 ball of Rowan Orkney All Seasons Cotton on: August 29, 2007 07:04:00 AM
I am 80% of the way through Flair (knitandtonic pattern) and realized that I underestimated my yardage  Sad

If anyone can sell or swap me 1 ball of Rowan ASC in Orkney (it's sort of a mustard yellow), I would be forever grateful. 

I tried to order it here http://www.yarnsunlimitedpa.com/index.php
 but never received an order confirmation  Huh
hope my sweater is not cursed. 

Thanks.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help - I'm allergic to my sock yarn! on: November 20, 2006 12:42:17 PM
I just bought the lovely "Petroglyph" colorway from Lisa Souza Sock! yarn and it's making me crazy.  After winding it yesterday and knitting just one inch of the cuff, my eyes were running and my throat and nose were itchy.  Yikes. 

It's already wound up so I don't think I can wash it.  Is there anything else I can do or should I just take a Benadryl?!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can you name that scarf pattern? on: May 14, 2006 10:26:25 PM
Does anyone watch West Wing?  In the series finales, when Matt Santos is getting sworn into office, they show Kristin Chenowith in a coat and scarf.  That scarf is so nice...does anyone have a guess as to the pattern?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help - tweed yarn on a cone...in oil?? on: January 26, 2006 09:17:50 AM
I have fallen madly in love with the Debbie Bliss Felted Tweed book.  However, since I can't afford to spring for Debbie Bliss tweed yarn or the Rowan Yorkshire Tweed ($14.95/hank!), I searched desperately for an alternative and found this one:

http://www.yarn.com/yarns-knitting/2-4-highlandTweed.html

Now, I can do yarn on a cone, but what's this business about being in oil?

"The yarn is still in spinning oil. The water will be a milky white as the oil washes out; the fabric will be soft."

I feel like I am buying tuna.  How on earth do I knit with oily yarn? Am I supposed to unwind into skeins and soak in hot water??  Huh
