311  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Oh. My. God. I knitted a sweater. on: January 17, 2005 06:19:08 PM
locking really isn't all that painful.  Do you have the first Stitch and Bitch book?  I feel that Debbie Stoller's instructions on how to block are the best.  Blocking can sometimes really do wonders for your knitting.  There were many times when I finished a project and was on the verge of tears because I thought I did something wrong or it was just a crappy job done on my part.  However, after dunking it in some cool water and stretching it into proportions, voila!  It looked somewhat reminiscent of the one displayed in the pattern!  Whew!!

i don't have the first book.  i think i just get so impatient when i make something that detailed.  i wanna get it on and enjoy!!  maybe i should just learn to deal.  thanks for the encouragement.  Smiley

very very cute!!  i about fell over when i made my first sweater.  it was soooo much easier than i thought it would be.  that book absolutely rocks and i've made a few thjings from it.  so so so easy and understandable!!

i have a question for ya...did you block that sweater?  i haven't had to do that yet and i am not (at all) looking forward to having to do that.  :|

i just found this site tonight, saw this post and couldn't help myself.

i was knitting this fugly scarf and took it to work with me to work on during lunch.  had to keep the needles in my bag with the points up so i wouldn't lose my work (duh!) and got into my car to drive to work.  the street i live on is curved for rain and all that fun stuff so when you get in, the door closes on ya, unless you reach out and hold it. 

can ya see where this is going?

it started to close on me, so i reached out and grabbed it.  too late...it slammed onto my hand, shoved my arm down and onto my knitting bag (comfortably resting on my shoulder) and i stuck my arm with my knitting needle.  it didn't just pop right (through two layers of clothes, too!!) in and pop right out.  oh no!  it was stuck and i had to pluck the jerk right back outta my arm.

fortunately i missed this huge blue vein that runs right up my arm and points right to the crime scene.  i nailed a muscle though.  ouch. 

i don't really use the knitting bag anymore.
