1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My 4th Doctor Scarf Finally Finished! on: September 14, 2014 01:16:27 PM
Well I cast on this baby months ago, but kept putting it down cause 830+ rows of knit stitch gets boring. This was my primary reason for learning to knit and I am happy to say I have finally finished it, including weaving in all the ends (which was a nightmare btw). I hate weaving ends. I am primarily a crocheter but I wanted to knit this for a more authentic look. I did, however, knit it on smaller needles than the pattern called for (3.5mm rather than 5mm) mostly because I was scared I would trip over it (I am not the most graceful or coordinated person. It's far from perfect, one of my color changes is on the opposite side than all the other ones and I think I somehow picked up a stitch somewhere when I first started, but it is mine and I made it and I will wave my geek flag proud.

I have tons of beanie patterns but none are quite right for this yarn, I think I might just end up winging it with a bit of ribbing and a nice shell stitch
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Some New Hats! (Slightly Image Heavy) on: August 18, 2014 05:37:44 PM
While I am fully aware it is, indeed, August...the weather changes very rapidly in Eastern Canada and it will soon be time for glorious hats. That and I am working on stock for my first craft show (with hats anyway, I have done shows for other stuff in the past). Just wanted to share some new ones Smiley

that's the thing, I really don't have anything too specific in mind, so long as I can make it with my 220yds lace weight, and it slouches. Open to suggestion! Smiley

So I bought this beautiful cashmere lace weight yarn and I have been waiting for the right pattern for it, but I am itching to use it so now I'm on the hunt for a pattern. I thought it would make a nice slouch hat for summer, but I can't find a pattern anywhere for a slouch hat pattern in lace weight. I'd kind of like something not plain, but not too busy. I have about 220 yards. Since I don't want to have to frog my precious yarn, anyone have a pattern I can use?

Love! Is the pattern available?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Blocking - Advice Needed on: June 21, 2014 07:19:14 PM
So a while back I embarked on the journey of the knit 4th doctor scarf. I'm nearing the last few rows, and I know I need to block it, but I haven't blocked anything quite so long before. For those unfamiliar, the scarf will be approximately 8 feet or so long before blocking. The whole thing is knit in Vanna's Choice (100% acrylic). What's the best blocking method for me to use for the piece? Normally for smaller things I would pin them to my ironing board and steam with a hovering iron, but the scarf is longer than the board :/
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: A question about tunisian hooks on: May 18, 2014 04:10:22 AM
What's the cable like on the KP ones? Like what's it made of? I never even thought of those. I have a set of the Symfonie Rose regular hooks that I loooove so I wouldn't mind another KP set. They're kinda pricey so I would have to wait till after my wedding next month, but might be worth the wait.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / A question about tunisian hooks on: May 17, 2014 06:26:14 AM
So I started out with the tunisian stitch a little while ago to do some colorwork, but all I have for a hook is the kind that's about 12" long with a stopper on the end, which really limits what I can do with it. I was looking at getting a set with cables, and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations. I usually use bamboo or other wood hooks, the only time I use metal is when I am using the teeny tiny ones for snowflakes and such. I was looking at a set of bamboo hooks with cables on ebay, like this set

Has anyone used this type before with the bamboo hook and the plastic tube? Did your yarn slide over the plastic ok? I just find the metal hooks so heavy, especially when I like to crochet for hours at a time. Any advice/recommendations are appreciated.
