I'm exactly like you!  I've even found some XS pattern sizes that were a tad big.

I like knitty's candy pattern, and I also know that Jenna Adorno makes some nice XS patterns since she's XS also. </is of no help>
3  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dyeing Acrylic? on: September 25, 2005 07:32:19 PM
acrylic is basically fine plastic fibers plyed together to create a yarn.

dying plastic... how does that sound?  Well, to me it sounds like it won't work - which it probably won't.

so pretty!  It's almost a shame to wear it to bed (vs. showing it off).
5  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Butterfly a-long (Rowan 37) on: September 21, 2005 07:27:09 PM
I really *really* want to knit this, except I don't want to pay $20 something dollars plus shipping for the magazine.  I've looked through pictures of the patterns and this is really the only one that appealed to me.  I've checked my LYS and libraries, and none of them have rowan magazines, so.

Does anyone have a well-loved but no longer needed copy of this pattern that they'd be willing to sell or trade?  I want to knit butterfly so badly, but I really don't want to pay $20 for just one pattern!

I think this is a difference between british and american abbreviations

in american abbreviation, a yo does NOT include knitting a stitch, you simply wrap the yarn around the needle.

in british abbreviation, a yo DOES include a knitted stitch right after the wrap.

So, yah. hope that helps.

I'll just echo what everyone else said and say "Fair Use!"
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Copyright stitches? on: September 13, 2005 07:20:08 PM
francey - Thanks!  That makes a lot of sense.  I just have one more question:  how do you know a stitch is in the public domain?  Can I safely assume that anything in a stitch dictionary is fair game?

Probably.  Look in the back to see if there are any credits/footnotes/etc... to see if authors are credited.  I'm guessing that if they were copyrighted, the author would want some sort of credit for it in any published work that uses it.  Also, look in the book to see if there are any copyright notices or anything i nthe front or back.  If there aren't any, I'd assume it was fair game.

actually, I recant part of what I just said.

fair use laws say that you can knit an item from a published pattern even if it isn't licensed for private use - but it doesn't hurt to license things anyway.
