41  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Rochester, NY KNITTERS? on: May 24, 2005 11:09:19 AM
I already posted this in the "City Guides" section of Craftster, but thought I might have better luck in the "Knitting" section, for obvious reasons.  (I hope I'm not breaking any Craftster rules!)  Anyway...

What do you guys think about forming a knitting group in Rochester, NY?  I know we've got knitters in this city, but I don't know of any knitting groups (for crafty hipsters).  Anyone interested???

43  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Greatest Triumph!...so far... on: May 20, 2005 10:47:30 AM
I knit these cabled, elbow-length, fingerless mitts for my sister and it was definitely a labor of love, emphasis on "labor".  Not only was it my first attempt at cables, but it was also the first time I'd knit something on smaller needles and smaller yarn.  But I knew I had to break my addiction to big needles, chunky yarn, and (almost) instant gratification...



Here is the free pattern: http://www.crystalpalaceyarns.com/cpy/patterns/mikado-gloves.html

I was NOT thrilled with the pattern.  Some of my frustration might be due to the fact that I often have no idea what I'm doing, but I had to add more decreases in the wrist so that it wouldn't bunch up, and I think they could have used a slightly heavier yarn.  By the end of the first glove, I was so frustrated with them that I ignored the directions for the thumb and hand shaping and modified the mitten pattern from Weekend Knitting that I was already comfortable with.

But my punky younger sister loves them!! So all's well that ends well, I guess!  Smiley

My first sweater and my first post... How exciting!



I used New York City Lights pattern from Berocco, omitting the Laser FX yarn.  Novelty yarns are not usually my thang, so I knit the whole thing using Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Truffle.  I could NOT, for the life of me, get the tension right on the ribbing around the arm and necklines (it was always too tight!) so I did 3 rows of crochet instead and it worked out pretty well.

Here's the pattern! http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/nycity_lights.html
