1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Addi Turbos or Knit Picks Options? on: April 11, 2007 05:14:02 AM
Addi just came out with lace needles.  I prefer them to the KP.  The cables are ultra pliant and the tips are wonderful.

It looks much more complicated than it really is.  And it's gorgeous.

If you go to your library and look up craft books from the '60's, you'll find several ideas for yarn containers using recycled items.  I recall that oatmeal cannisters were big - covered in wallpaper scraps or somesuch.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: turning a work-entrelac on: February 16, 2006 04:04:29 AM
You just need to turn the entire piece around.  This sounds bizarre if you've never done entrelac before.  When you start a normal knit piece, you go across the cast-on row, turn it over and work back.  In entrelac, you use short rows to knit a series of linked triangles as the foundation row.  When you're done with one triangle, you go on to the next one, until you run out of cast on stitches.

So,

RS   knit 2, and turn the piece over, ignoring the remaining 18 cast-on stitches. 
WS  slip the first stitch, purl 1, turn the whole thing around

RS   knit 3  (knit the two you've just purled and knit one from the cast on row), turn the whole thing around
WS slip the first stitch, purl 2

RS  knit 4  (k3 you've just purled and knit one from the cast on row), etc.

10 sts x 14 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm on size 13 needles.   I've been planning a quickie in this pattern using OnLine 60 Tondo from Elann.  http://secure.elann.com/productdisp.asp?NAME=ONline+Linie+60+%2D+Tondo&Season=&Company=&Cat=ALLY&ProductType=5&OrderBy=+Order+By+Shortgauge&Count=105

The correct gauge for the yarn is 10stx14 rows over 10cm^2 on size 13, not size 17 as per Elann's site.

The yarn just needs to be fairly cold, however long that takes.  The overnight bit is really to give the knitter a chance to calm down.  Smiley
