1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Okay to machine wash? on: January 22, 2006 05:23:59 PM
I have some FOs knitted in Lion Brand.. I can't remember the exact kind, but it's sort of twisty and fuzzy, and nice and soft when knitted.  100% acrylic.  But I'm scared to machine wash it with other clothing because I'm afraid the little wispy fibers will come off and get all over everything else.  Anyone machine washed this yarn with other clothing and had it turn out okay?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with Branching Out from Knitty? Please? on: January 21, 2006 04:21:59 PM
Okay, when you sl-k-psso, you have to first yo, right?

I've been doing that, but my passed stitches have been getting all twisty on the needle afterwards.  After you slip the stitches, do you have to put the yarn back behind the work before you pass them over so it won't get all wonky like this, or is that supposed to happen?

Thank you!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Not sure which stitch to use.. on: December 04, 2005 09:37:26 PM
I'm making a scarf for a friend's Christmas gift.  I just completed my first 2x2 rib and it's great... for a regular worsted weight unfancy yarn.  This time I have a slightly bulkier yarn to be knit on size 10 needles that's textured.. not exactly boucle but similar.  I want it to be fairly even and identical on both sides, but pretty thick as well.  I did a section in 2x2 ribbing and it just looks wrong with such an organic, unevenly textured yarn.  Plus, the ribbed sections don't fold into one another to become half the width and twice the thickness, which is what I was hoping for and what happened with my other scarf.  So basically, what stitch would you guys recommend?  I guess my only options are garter and seed, for both sides to be the same.  Any idea which will yield a thicker scarf?

Thanks!
