21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone speak or read French? on: June 17, 2006 08:37:20 PM
French major here.  I primarily knit and I know most of the French knitting terms, but unfortunately I'm not so familiar with crochet terms in French.  (So I guess what I'm saying is that I'm not particularly helpful.  Heh.)  Here is a link to knitting and crochet terms translated into 4 other languages.  This site has a little translation tool thingy.  You probably won't be able to translate from French to English due to abbreviations, but if you try to translate a bunch of English crochet terms, you might recognize the abbreviations.  Just a thought.

Thanks for the compliments! 

(I haven't really looked at my knitblog since the beginning of April--I need to figure out how to use my digital camera better.)

Maybe it'll look better on my sister.  Unfortunately, the sweater is 150 miles away (at my apartment at school).  I'll give it a second chance when I see it again (and maybe get a picture of myself modeling it), and then if it doesn't work, I'll give it to my sister.

Oooh, I definitely have some Wool-Ease in my stash.  I wonder if my [long-waisted] sister needs a sweater...

Mine is as done as it will be for now.  I have a very short torso, and I didn't take that into consideration when choosing to knit this sweater.  You can view it at my blog.  It's a cute sweater.  Just not on me.

I'll be interested to see how the final versions turn up.  It looks really cute on the model, but I'm somewhat pear-shaped with a really short torso, so I'm not sure if it's the right sweater for me.  I'm in a huge knitting slump right now and the last thing I need is another sweater that makes me look short and dumpy.  But I'll be watching this thread and cheering all of you guys on.  Go forth, knit, and be happy!  And post pics!  Smiley

P.S.  In the meantime, could anyone tell me what yarn the pattern calls for?

I just printed out the pattern for the Saturday Market Bag.  I have some Lion Brand Cotton that's just sitting around.  This just might be the thing to get me out of my knitting slump.

I also really like Gesundheit; I might knit it up in order to distract myself from the constant allergies and colds.

ETA:
I started the Saturday Market Bag just a little bit ago, and the lace pattern as written doesn't match the photo.  She has it so it's stockinette-based, but the photo clearly shows a garter-based lace.  Mine definitely looks different from the photo, since I don't have the garter stitch bars.  I'm not sure if I want to frog it or just keep it as is.

E again TA:
I tried it with K on every row, and that looked wrong too.  I'm just confused now.  I'm going back to the way the pattern is written and just keeping that.  It doesn't matter that much to me to have the lace pattern exactly right.
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: teva durham's ballet top with sleeve mods on: May 10, 2006 08:52:55 AM
Apparently in the magazine the instructions say to just put the live sleeve stitches on DPNs and knit a tube.  (Note: I don't have the magazine, this is just what I remember from someone else.)  I was concerned that this would cause too much extra fabric bunched up at the armpit, although I asked someone who did it this way, and she said she didn't notice any extra pit fabric.

When I knit long sleeves (actually ended up being more like 3/4-length sleeves, cause I ran out of yarn) on my ballet tee, I followed Option #2 from Grumperina's Long Sleeve Picovoli Tutorial.  It worked perfectly.  Once I had all the stitches on my DPNs, I joined it in the round and just did decreases every few inches as I worked my way down.

Stefanie's gauge is 13sts/4" and Emms' gauge was 16sts/4".  Doesn't that mean that Emms would have needed to cast on more?  The top edge is 15.38", according to the pattern.  If Emms only cast on 40 stitches, then her top edge would be 10".  In other words, Emms actually had more stitches per inch than the recommended gauge. 

Right?  Is there something I'm missing?  My brain is fried from finals.

Luckychere:

For your second question, check out this post I made on modifying top-down raglans (which this essentially is).  If your gauge is 17sts/4", you'll definitely want to recalculate the sleeves and fronts.  Otherwise, the proportions will be wrong.

I think the knitted t-shirt in general is unflattering on most body types, especially at larger gauges (i.e. anything above a US5 needle).  I'm not a big girl, but I still wouldn't knit it--it'd add at least 10 more lbs to my middle.
