1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: are there any knitting/crocheting/quilting/crafty magazines gone digital? on: May 02, 2011 11:21:25 AM
right, and I've seen those, but I guess the issue for me would be having to grab every month and place it on Mom's nook for her, instead of it automatically downloading into the library - Mom's *so* not tolerant of technological processes, and cut and paste is a nightmare at times for me (believe you me, I've tried!!)
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / are there any knitting/crocheting/quilting/crafty magazines gone digital? on: May 02, 2011 09:37:59 AM
Mother's Day is coming up, and so is my Mom's birthday.. . . same month, but this time at 2 ends of the month. .. . barring that and the fact that she's so hard to buy for, I'm thinking of a nook color, but to keep her interest, wanted to get a subscription that would auto deliver to the device every month. ..  she loves to quilt, crochet, and knit.. . but I see nothing on bn's website for this. .. . can anyone help by chance with my predicament  Huh
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / berocco comfort substitution help on: July 16, 2010 11:00:58 AM
I'm absolutely dying to make this afghan:
and it's made from Berroco's Comfort Yarn line: http://www.berroco.com/shade_cards/comfort_sh.html

Well, I can't really justify spending that much on yarn, especially with the stash that I can never seem to work down (it just *never* has in there what I *need*, nor can I yet part with any Cheesy) and saw the colors I wanted in KnitPicks, but unfortunately, it calls for one of the multicolored balls (antipasto to be exact). I wanted to make a cotton/lighter-not-heavy-wool-fleece afghan, and just loved the sunny look of this one (I know, I know, it's really nothing that great, but I like it!)

Can anyone suggest anything anyway that I can substitute for this? I don't think I can buy the colors I want, and then walk into the yarn store and try to mix and match with something else right Sad

Help with suggestions please? Sad

well I don't really need the yarn until the 10th (when I leave for vacation), and in doing a general price between Joann's Lion Brand and KP .. . we're working out near the same. . . as KP I wouldn't have to pay tax, but shipping (unless I bump up to the $50, as my ttl is about $34 + $5 for shipping!)

Can anyone voice for the comfy quality of KP's cotton yarn by any chance? I'm wondering now if to go with the cotton, or a worsted weight non-cotton (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_beQN8Gq55xA/RsMajacn6rI/AAAAAAAAAQk/oMXYdN2rgyI/s320/FanKimono.jpg). . . Plymouth Fantasy Naturale was the yarn recommended. .. . opinions anyone again. . please?

. ..  and thank you so much for all answering the post, your help has been great!!!

ok, sounds good - and would you recommend/think I should go with this vs going with knit picks? . . I think they're is about $3 more orso. .. 

thanks again!

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / cotton yarn substitute on: May 19, 2010 08:19:34 PM

I really want to make this knitted kimono that I have a pattern for. . . it calls for 1400 yards of worsted cotton. . .  but here's the thing. . . I actually want to use the kimono, and want something nice n soft n comfy. . .. I don't want to spend a ton of money on the yarn, but still want something sort of nice/cuddly. . .can anyone suggest something reasonable? I've looked at Lion Brand, and at Knit Picks, and I've had the pleasure of using other nice yarns before, but darn 1400 yards is a lot of yarn Cheesy

Suggestions please anyone? I'd love to get it in time for my vacation coming up - the plane ride's going to be long enough to get a good start Cheesy
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Big help needed with reading instructions on Debbie Bliss pattern :( on: November 19, 2008 06:44:29 AM
I'm working on the Debbie Bliss seed stitch shoes in one of her books (I can't remember which exact one), and I have the following instruction:

"inc last st on next and every foll alt row."

For the 1st part I've to do this to increase from 22 to 32 stitches.

Help!!! I can't figure this one out.

I looked at the picture and it looks like it's one increase for every consecutive row. ..
so you'll have:
. ..

or should it be increasing for every other row so you have
. .

Huh  My mind reads it one way, but the picture looks like another - can anyone assist me with this? pleasseee?
