1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Double Pointed SPLINTERS! on: May 28, 2005 05:54:26 PM
I have a set of wooden DPNS and they are ALWAYS splintering on me. Not only do they hurt, they tear at the yarn when i try to work. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Anyone have this same problem?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Green and white spiral scarf :o my own pattern! (Now with tutorial) on: May 12, 2005 06:21:52 PM
Check it out. Total accident that it spiraled, but I really like it! Next time i'll make it longer though. Okay okay tutorial now!

IF you decide to make it, I'd like to see your results! Post here, or private message me!  Grin

All i needed was:
Size 7 needle (i use circular because its more comfy)
and Lion Brand Micro Spun Yarn (it makes it really soft XD)





Cast on however many stitches it takes to make the scarf the length it will be in the end.

Knit one row

K1 F&B all the way down.

Then knit knit knit knit (garter stitch)

when you have it as wide as you like, K2tog all the way across

knit across once

Bind off

It should curl naturally, I didnt stitch the edges together, but you can if you'd like XD

Then add fringe. I used a chrochet needle, and one thread of each color to create the frindge on the end of my scarf. Good times XD
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fair Isle on a blanket. Need help please! on: April 24, 2005 04:49:03 PM
Okay, so I help out in a developmentally disabled classroom and last December my teacher had a baby. She's returning this week and i'm hoping to finish a baby blanket by friday. I'm planning on doing a fair isle of a duck in the middle of the blanket. My question is, how do i cover up those threads on the other side? should i just tie off and change colors, instead of doing fair isle?

Im confused and I need help ASAP! Huh thank you so much  Kiss

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Duplicate stitch on a scarf? Help me! on: April 14, 2005 11:08:02 AM
I'm really new to knitting. I only started two saturdays ago, but I'm pretty advanced. I've finished at least 6 hats and two pairs of arm warmers so far. Last night I decided to start a scarf. Size 9 US needles, and a black yarn (im not sure what gague but its about as thick as your average Red Heart yarn)

I want to duplicate stitch a watermelon on each end. I wrote out a pattern on a graph and everything. I'm just worried about the back side of the scarf. Won't it look bad? How do I fix this?


Anyone else had this problem?  Huh

I really want my first scarf to turn out well, and I like my projects to be done in a day Shocked kind of an obsessive behavior.  Undecided


HELP ME!!!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A New Hyper Hat (Rainbow Groove) TUTORIAL! on: April 12, 2005 02:21:29 PM
Since i've been making AT LEAST a hat a day for the past few days, and there is no end in sight, I have decided to give each hat its own tutorial, instead of putting 6 hats and six tutorials to a post (see my first post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31708.0 )

Now heres the hat I made today I call Rainbow Groove  Kiss





I used 13pt circular needles. And Red Heart Rainbow Sport yarn.

Cast on 64 stitches.
Knit double sided stockinette stitch for as many rows as you want the "brim"
Then knit one row.
Switch to thick black yarn (I forget the brand I used) Mine is kind of fuzzy XD
Then knit 4 rows
Purl 4 rows
knit 4 rows
Switch back to rainbow yarn
Knit to top and bind off.

Now it gets tricky. I always just wing-it on the tops of hats, so my directions are kinda... odd



Seperate into four seperate sections to make a "plus" sign.
Stitch outwards on one "tip" till you reach the end of it. Then turn around, and make the first stitch about half way down the tip. This will cause it to curl. Then simply stitch your way back to the middle and repeat on the other tips. Then you're done!


Hope this helps someone!

Hearts and love-
Erin
