201  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: lion band suede please help on: December 04, 2005 06:10:40 PM
That stuff is the bane of my existence. I hate, hate, hate it. When the revolution comes, the creator of that yarn should be first up against the wall. That aside.....

I just got done doing a hideous poncho for my beloved, yet abysmally tasteless mother. It was done mostly in stockinette, but there were sections that were lacy, a really simple, yo, k2tog across the rs rows and purl on the WS rows, that ended up looking really nice.
202  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Suggestions please! (found yarn in the stash) on: December 04, 2005 06:03:44 PM
I just found 2 balls of Wildflower DK Fancy from Plymouth Yarns in my stash. I got them on superclearance at the LYS before I ever even learned to knit. (i'd planned to crochet something but crochet just didn't hold my attention)

There isn't a lot, just 2 50g balls. I'd like to make something for a family baby shower thing, All I could think of to make was a couple hats, though, and I haven't quite got the hang of the dpn's yet.

Any suggestions? It's really cute yarn and I hate to see it just sit.

This is perfect! Not only did I have the yarn in my stash for the "bag for all seasons" but I was also getting desperate to find something for Christmas for my cousin. It's on the needles already!

Both of my kids (11 yo girl and 8 yo boy!!!!!) have asked me to teach them to knit. For Christmas they are both getting some handmade needles (I'll make my son's "manly"), and a ball of cool chunky yarn so I can teach them to knit up a garter stitch scarf.

Thanks emms! I have some Woolease thick and quick that a family member got for me on sale at michaels. it's an awful color, but it will fit the gauge, and it'll be perfect to knit up a practice sweater before I spend the cash on good yarn for it.  Wink  Besides, it's so pretty I could almost stand the ugly color to wear it.  Grin

I'm so excited!!! I'll be casting this on tonight as soon as I finish up the hat I'm making!

Edit: I just went through my stash and found 2 balls of creamy mohair blend in the exact guage!! YAY!!!!  now to figure out how many extra stitched to contain my sweater kittens.  Wink

second edit. Looks like I will need to cast on 64 stitches for a 41" bust. I know that I will just need to increase the number of stitches between encreases and markers when I edit the pattern for myself, but what's got me confused is how I split up the stitches. Any ideas?Huh

OMG! Finally a sweater pattern I think I can manage. I've been all itchy to knit me up a sweater. I've got some questions as well.

Is there a link to the original post to see a picture of it?

Does anyone know what weight rowan polar is?

And when you say 36" bust, is that the underbust measurement or the full bust measurement?

it's been a good teaching tool. I've learned how to read a pattern, even though it's a pretty easy pattern, and I learned some increasing and decreasing stitches. Best of all, though, I've learned how to get my husband to quit trying to steal all of my FOs. It's the first thing he hasn't asked for immediately upon casting on. (this includes the mohair shawl I made for my aunt that he wanted to keep so he could cuddle with it)  Grin

Here is the pattern for said ugly poncho, I'm telling you. the craze can't end soon enough for me.



I'd post the pic of the finished ugly poncho, but alas, it is not yet complete.

apixiegirl, that is sooooo much prettier than what I'm working up for my mom. I am glad to hear someone had a good experience with it. Maybe I'm just still a yarn tard, But I've have several breaks since. I think it may just be this particular ball of yarn, so I'm in the process of ripping back to where I added this ball in, and will start with a new ball. Wish me luck!

it's my dad that loves homespun. I just got done with an evil homespun scarf for him for christmas. I have a TON of it in my stash because I had this killer idea for a crocheted afghan. Then I started crocheting with it. EEK! I had loops to crochet into where there shouldn't have been loops. I finally got the hang of it, but for a long time I was only able to produce some really spectacular knots. I found that knitting with it isn't quite as bad though. And at least it doesn't break like glass.  Wink
