Oooo that's a pretty knitted...wrap. All the ideas sound good.... now just to decide .... Thank you all!

Oops, one question: Does the size needles affect the length of the drop, when you're dropping stitches? Or is it ....something else?
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Ribbon Threaded Scarf: Help? on: November 15, 2005 05:50:21 PM
See, I think those ribbon threaded scarves are pretty cool... and I want to make one. The problem is, I have no idea what to knit a scarf in so you could thread a ribbon through. The one that I could tell the stitch was crocheted, so it didn't help much.

Does anyone know?

Here are some, in case you don't know what I speak of:
This one is crocheted, I think:

And it says this one is knit:

Thank you very much!!
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting question- Monty the Monkey on: November 09, 2005 04:31:09 PM
Ok, so I'm knitting http://www.save-on-crafts.com/motoymoknpru.html. Monty the Monkey, in Red Heart Medium Worsted, because that yarn seems like too much for me. But I'm unsure about some things, maybe some of you experienced knitters could help me?Huh ?

(Row 1) * (KP, K2) 6 times. (24 sts)
(Row 2 and alt rows) Purl
(Row 3) * (KP, K2) 8 times (32 sts)
(Row 5) K2, * (KP, K2) 10 times (42 sts)
Work 3 rows stkg-st.
(Row 9) K2, * (KP, K3) 10 times
Work 3 rows.
Inc 1 st both ends of next row. (54 st)

These are the lines that are confusing me.
First of all, I get these little purl bumps in the middle of all the stockinette, but I assume it's supposed to be like that. My 2 questions
1- I worked row 5, then went on to 'work 3 rows stkg-st.' But if I did that, I would be knitting on the (so-far) purl side. So I did reverse stkg-st (I think. Where you start with purl, right?). Would that be right?

2- And the work 3 rows. Does that mean work in stkg-st?

I have a question kind of pertaining to this...I like the hooded scarf, but if you wanted a hood that was more drapey over your face-like, could you maybe make it straight on the back, and then increase on the front, to the middle, then decrease? So it was like a triangle? I don't know if I'm explaining myself at all. But then would the increases look sloppy? I'm not that experienced a knitter.... Roll Eyes

Yeah, Krysta, I guess it could have something to do with humidity...cause my house is usually pretty humid. Hopefully then that would clear up now that it's becoming winter.

Those cut books are so cool!! So are the purses...I always like the idea of book purses/bags. *sigh* So many awesome things....
28  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / How to attach wings?? on: October 24, 2005 08:15:38 AM
For my halloween costume, I'm being a faerie, and I've made some wings. They're so extremely ugly, I don't want to show them, but they're like.....downward facing with a split into two at the bottom.  If you don't get what I mean:



I know about using ribbon, but I heard something about using v-shaped wire?

Wow.....those pages look good.....

No, I do not have any pictures of my progress, but I'm posting to ask you guys a question. What are you using on your pages to make them not stick together? I was using mod podge to seal it, but they stuck together. Then I bought some Royal Coat decoupage sealer, and found out that it's made by the same company. It worked a little better, but the pages still seem sticky......
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Survey: Continental vs. English on: October 16, 2005 06:46:52 AM
1.Where do you live? MD, USA
2.What style do you prefer? Continental
3.Who taught you how to knit? (do you know their lineage?) I learned from books. At first, I only knit English, because the book I had only taught that way (it was for kids). Then, when I found another one, I tried Continental, and it was much easier for me.
4. Have you tried, successfully or not, to change styles throughout your knitting life? If yes, why? Continental seemed a lot easier to me, but that might be also because I was only just starting to knit, so I didn't know either very well. Now, I can barely knit English (this post made me try), I'm very slow.
