11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How many stitches for sleeves? on: March 27, 2007 09:21:38 PM
I'm trying to knit my first raglan sweater without a pattern.  I'm sure it will be fine, the only thing I'm a little iffy on is the # of stitches to use for the sleeves.  I think that I've read both 1/3 of the # on the back and also 1/4. 

Does anyone have a percentage method that works?  Thanks!
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Reinforcing magnetic snaps on: March 04, 2007 05:12:19 PM
I just made my first bag and it turned out ok, but I'm worried that the magnetic snaps are going to rip through the fabric.  I did use a light interfacing (I'll probably use something a little bit heavier next time), but it still doesn't feel secure.  Should I put something behind it next time?  Maybe a strip of ticker tape or something?

Thanks!
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What was it called again? on: January 25, 2007 04:03:29 PM
I'm looking for a pattern for a head scarf.  It's been here on craftster quite a bit, but I can't find it now.   Huh  It's the one where you cross 3 stitches over 3 and get x's in the knitting...  Does that even make sense?
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Braided Hat from Knittinghelp.com on: December 05, 2006 06:59:10 AM
Does anyone have this pattern or know where to find it other than that website.  I'm at work and the site is being blocked because it's a forum...  Sad  I can get it when I get home, but I was hoping to start during my lunch...

Thanks!
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Avoiding "jogs" in stripes in circular knitting on: November 19, 2006 12:57:07 PM
I know I've seen a way to avoid little jogs when you change colors in circular knitting, but for the life of me I can't find it now.  Does anyone know where I can find it?  Thanks!
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn for Rowan's Anna on: November 17, 2006 06:28:41 PM
Does anyone happen to have the yarn requirements for Rowan's Anna socks?  I've ordered the magazine, but it hasn't arrived yet and I'd like to get the yarn!

Thanks!
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Little White Sweater Wanted on: August 29, 2006 09:16:44 AM
So, I've actually been successful in my last couple of sweater attempts and I'm kind of excited.  I made the ballet tee in kidsilk, rusted root, and now I'm working on Diamonique.  I have several fall/winter sweaters I can't wait to get started on, but I keep thinking about a little white sweater.  I'd like the sleeves to be a little longer (kind of like the somewhat cowl) but have a crewneck and maybe I can add a couple of cables...  

I've finally finished a couple of things I can wear, I'm not so sure I'm up to designing something.  Any ideas?  (I've never even really modified anything on my own)  Someplace to start would be great!  Thanks

Hmmm...  come to think of it, I don't think it was even my original idea!  Could I just make this sweater longer?  Would I have to do any decreases on the sleeves if I want them longer?  I guess I should just check my gauge and measure my arm huh?

18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Tried this pattern? I need input on: August 20, 2006 11:46:00 AM
I want to try this, but I'm wondering how practical it is.  It kind of looks like there might be some limited use of your arms because of the construction.  If you've tried it I'd love input!  http://www.kpixie.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=2010

Thanks!
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting clipart/graphics on: August 10, 2006 02:35:46 PM
Does anyone know if there's a website with knitting clipart/graphics for personal use?  I LOVE some of the ones here, but you can't use them.  I'm looking for a little more contemporary stuff.  Thanks!  http://www.cafepress.com/buy/knitting/-/cfpt2_/cfpt_/source_searchBox/copt_
20  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Rusted Root on: August 09, 2006 08:50:56 AM
I know there was a lot of discussion about starting a KAL for this and I've been watching, but haven't seen one yet so I thought I'd start it.  I cast on yesterday...

Check it out!  http://www.zephyrstyle.com/catalog/item.cfm/2367447/3289215
