1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Cottage Teacosy on: April 10, 2015 03:41:50 PM
That is soooo gorgeous, and I have massive respect for the patience you must have to work that many colors at once =)

You rock.
2  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Fair Isle? Eh? on: April 10, 2015 03:39:55 PM
I'm gearing up to start my first fair isle pattern--yay!

Don't suppose anyone wants to take the plunge with me?  I'll be using the cowl pattern from I Can't Believe I'm Fair Isle Knitting, but any pattern would do for discussion of technique and whatnot, methinks.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Mega Sock Frustration on: April 10, 2015 03:37:29 PM
Hokai.  So.
I've been knitting for a lonnggg while, but was always intimidated by socks.  So I think to myself, "Self, it's time to make socks!"

I have tried 2 separate patterns (though both were toe-up patterns), and ran into the same problem--
The area where I picked up stitches for the heel turns out WICKED tight.  Ultimately, they are super comfy to wear once they're on, but an absolute nightmare to get on and off.  Gauge was spot-on, and I've tried blocking with a snazzy sock blocker.

Any ideas?

Retro camper is definitely adorable.  But I'm positively swooning over the Cas hoop =)  That's fantastic.

Thing 1: Thanks!

Thing 2: OH MAN, THAT FABRIC.  That's super exciting haha--Thanks for pointing it out...I never would have found that!  Now to procure fabric, and Star Trek embroider anew...

Alright, so hear me out.  I've been knitting for yearsss, and very recently ventured into the wonderful world of embroidery (which was both terrifying and glorious).  So.  My first dabble with embroidery has turned out as such.  Messy for sure, but I think there's hope ^_^

Anywho.  Start Trek Next Gen quotation.  And that may or may not be Vulcan calligraphy going down the side.  Yay!
