1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Caftan Pullover from Spring IK on: June 04, 2006 09:28:31 AM
Looks great & thanks for posting.  How tall are you?  I like where it hits on your hip, but am wondering if I would have to shorten it for myself.

cuff down or toe up? 

also, do you recommend the pattern you used?  i've never done cabled socks (though plenty of socks and plenty of cabling) and was wondering if this would be a good first cabled sock.

Would be easy to modify to an apple w/ a worm coming out of the top.  That said, the gold fish intarsia is cute, cute, cute!

If a)you're into the toe-up thing and b)you can get past the ugly, distracting yarn in the pattern, I'm working this one right now and liking it.

Oooohh!  Looks good!  And I bet you loved knitting with the cascade quattro!  I just saw it in a greeny colorway at my lys and had to restrain myself.

You can use any gauge you want!

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sock with YO at end of the pattern!? on: April 06, 2006 08:35:24 PM
I am using a free sock pattern found here: http://secure.elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=4024 

Here's my sorta, kinda, not-so-big problem...I finished the toe and am now on the foot, ready to start the pattern.  Pattern is worked over 11 stitches, which is why I chose this pattern in the first place. So I knit 1 repeat of the pattern and all is good.  I knit the 2nd repeat of the pattern and notice that it ends with a YO.  And, indeed, it needs that YO so that I keep the original number of stitches on the instep needle. 

So, all you sock/lace experts out there, how do I do this YO at the end of the row and *not* have it end up on the next needle?  In other words, it seems to me the extra stitch created by the YO should stay on the instep needle, but I don't know how to accomplish this. 

BTW...the project is cashmere socks for Mother's Day.  Won't she just love me! Grin
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: felting by hand HELP!! on: April 06, 2006 08:28:44 PM
No, no, don't use the dryer.  I actually prefer to felt by hand (yes, I'm a martyr) because I prefer the degree of control it offers.  I use a combo of these three methods:
Add some dish soap.
Hot water is good, but "shocking" it with cold water, then hot again, will speed things up.
Use something like the side of a spoon to sorta scrape the stitches.  Pretend like you're scraping them away. 

Good luck...your bag sounds super cute.

Ole Ole looks quite promising.  Thanks Emms!

And, to ozarkcat, if I knew that cotton would take an easy dye (like kool aid) I would cut up my collection of old tshirts into "yarn" and dye them...

Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

I had thought about the Knitpicks Spinnaker, but the colors are too pastel-y...not bright enough.  Same thing about unravelling old sweaters...limited color control.  But it would be awesome if I could get the righth color.  Must make mental note to keep an eye out when I'm in thrift shops.
