11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What's this lace? on: October 13, 2006 01:55:09 AM
Could somebody tell me if they can figure out what this simple lace stitch is called by just looking at it?  I had found it ages ago and copied it onto my desktop, but was silly enough not to copy the name of it!  Specifically, I really need it in graph or chart form.  Anybody?  Please?

Row 1: K1, *yo, k2tog* repeat from * - *.

Row 2: Purl

Row 3: *Ssk, yo* repeat from * - *.

I can't for the life of me work out how to draw it up. 
Muchly appreciated,

Zia  Grin

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knit 2 tog purlwise on: October 03, 2006 05:40:45 PM
Can somebody shed some light on this?  I have googled for about 10 mins trying to find my answer, but no luck. 

My sister has an old Italian pattern and this is what it says in one of the rows: (translated in English) - Knit 2 stitches together purlwise.  Is this an actual stitch?  It sounds simple enough and I can actually visualize doing it myself, but my sister says it 'doesn't look right' when she is doing it (as she thinks it should be done)

And what exactly would be it's opposite slant?

It's driving me crazy, because I want to know too!  Undecided

Thanks for any advice..
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / (oh not another) Finished Knucks! on: October 01, 2006 10:14:31 PM
This is one of the things I've just recently finished for my sister for Christmas.  These babies are going overseas all the way to Italy from Australia!  Hope she like them, as they were a labour of love. 

Working on those few stitches on the dpn's nearly killed me, but they were a fun knit for sure, especially the lacey part.

The colour is more of a torquoise... with a tiny bit more green.  Hope you like them!

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Stooopid Question? on: September 03, 2006 08:53:17 PM
My sister has a beautiful store bought hand knit sweater and I would like to try to replicate it (more or less).  If i weigh her sweater, will that give me the true amount of yarn I would need?  Or am I totally off track?  Wouldn't you just assume that would work?  And maybe add a little extra yarn just in case?

Any thoughts on this would really be appreciated!   Grin

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help with t-twist tee from Knitty on: August 14, 2006 05:55:25 PM
Hi everyone.

I have just started knitting this top.  I'm about 2 inches into it and it's ROLLING LIKE MAD.
Should I be worried?  Will it block flat after washing?  Please help!!   Undecided

I tried emailing the designer, but her email isn't working. 
And as you can see in her pic, http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTttwist.html it isn't rolling at all.  Am I doing something wrong?
I'm using a wool/cotton blend and at first I thought that was the problem.  But now I'm not so sure...  Huh

Thanks in advance.

I'm so sorry AGAIN people.... another mistake taken care of (in purple.)
If anybody picks up more mistakes, I will just die.  Sad

Sorry for the mistake everyone, the purple section is now correct.   Grin

I just whipped this up, a simple top down tee which a lot of you can make with your eyes closed...
But for those of you who aren't THAT confident and have a 36 inch bust, here are my simple notes (please keep in mind I'm rotten at pattern writing!):

I used a blend of angora/wool that gave me 23 sts - 4inches.
With size 4mm circular needles c/on 160 sts.  
Work this row in st st: Place marker after 57 sts, after 23 sts, after 57 sts, and after 23 sts, then join in the round. Keep working in st st and increase one stitch (yo's) before and after each marker, on every second round.

After about 30 rounds start knitting the arm sections in garter stitch.

After about 35 rounds (this is just roughly) place all sts on waste yarn and safety-pin the arm 'points' together - try on.  If it fits comfortably, it's time to seperate the arm openings.  Place sts back on needle.

Knit to arm section and B/O all arm sts.  Join work.  Knit to next arm section and B/O arm sts.  Join work.  Continue knitting in the round until about an inch before binding off.  Work in garter stitch for that inch, then b/o very loosely.

Of course you can add body shaping and a neck border if you want.  I just left mine to roll.

Please let me know of any mistakes or if something doesn't make sense.

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My new sweater on: August 08, 2006 05:37:13 PM
My new self designed sweater, but I'm a little disappointed.
It's a bit scratchy (100% wool), so I'm never buying that brand again.

It bunches up at the back - hate that.

At least I like the neck.

Oh well, thanks for looking.

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Are these easy to make? on: August 07, 2006 02:59:36 AM
Has anybody tried making the Knucks gloves from Knitty?

Are there any tricky bits?  I would love to make these for
my sister for Christmas but only if they are easy, as I have
never attempted to make gloves.  Undecided

I'm open to anything easier to follow if anybody knows of a pattern.

Any advice or suggestions would be great!

Thanks heaps everyone..
