21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: The Boyfriend Sweater Curse on: September 12, 2006 07:01:54 AM
I've never made my boyfriend a sweater, though he's had hats galore and has now requested a scarf. Of course, my first questions were what yarn, what style, cables, lace, etc - and he asks for one like I gave my sister, only in brown. So he's getting a brown worsted-weight drop stitch scarf  Roll Eyes He was concerned it might take too long to make.

Double-knitting and entrelac might also be fun things to try - not harder than lace in my opinion. Also, what about short-rows and both intarsia and stranded color work?

Either I missed something, or they're making a fourth book?

Good suppliers keep their henna frozen Smiley It'll lose color left out at room temperature. Just a note.

The way I remembered it, it was a center cast on, though I've since heard intriguing things about using a figure-eight cast on, like for toe-up socks.

You know what I would buy the hell out of? Their alpaca/silk laceweight before they dye it. I would get mountains of that.
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help Understanding Moebius Knitting? on: August 23, 2006 11:24:40 AM
Okay, so I have knit something moebius before. Once, when I was just learning to knit. I did a basketweave scarf about a year ago, and all I remember is (vaguely) how the cast-on worked, and to use a "reversible stitch" so it wouldn't look funky (I did moss stitch).

Time passes, I've grown in skill, I now know that my favorite knitting is lace. So, in the interest of keeping skills sharp, I'm gonna try a moebius lace thing. And I have a question:

When you do a moebius scarf, and all you do is the knit stitch, like to make stockinette in the round, when it's all finished and you're looking at a section, does it look like half stockinette and half reverse stockinette? If so, then a garter lace would theoretically work, right?

If so, this is going to be the awesomest scarf ever. Grin

Updated that post with pics. ALso, the larger strawberries, when staggered, are like this:

Lemme see what I can find Smiley Another variation is slightly larger strawberries, and that's the lace pattern found in Rowan's Butterfly. That one goes like this:

IIIO^OIII
I\OIIIO/I
\OIIIIIO/
I\OIIIO/I
IIIO^OIII

Looks really elongated in chart form, but it's the same as rowan's butterfly.

In the top picture, there's the band of meshlike lace around the inner triangle portion of the scarf. I'm pretty sure that's strawberries Smiley

Strawberries!

You can do them pattern on every row, or add a plain row between, but they look like this:


IIO^OII
\OIIIO/
IIO^OII

I= knit
O= yo
\ = ssk
/ = k2tog
^= slip 2 knitwise, knit 1, psso

When you stagger them, they make diamond-shapes, like this:

IIO^OIIIIIO^OIIIIIO^OIIIIIO^OIIIIIO^OII
\OIIIO/I\OIIIO/I\OIIIO/I\OIIIO/I\OIIIO/
IIO^OIIIIIO^OIIIIIO^OIIIIIO^OIIIIIO^OII
