Gatorwrangler - Well, my Mom had to get one, too! LOL

Looks like there'll be plenty of interest in the next round of the dolly clothing swap!

Actually, I've got all the details over at my blog! The purple reads slightly darker, and slightly less red than it actually is, but it's still very nice. I only left one skein out of my photo, I tried to dye light purple with strawberry lemonade then overdyed with berry blue. I bound the mini skein a little too tight though, and it turned out very blotchy and uneven. Thanks for your comments!

I totally love all of the easter egg dyed brights around here! I was kinda surprised though, when a few people mentioned they weren't having luck with dyeing bright colors with Kool-Aid. So, I thought I'd share the fun I've had lately!



These were all dyed with Kool-Aid, over the last couple weeks. I was using much smaller yarn amounts, maybe that's why I got really nice saturated colors. Most of these 1oz skeins were dyed with a full packet of Kool-Aid. Some were dyed with partial packets, and some were overdyed. See my blog for more details! Thanks for looking!
24  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Rapunzel Scarf for Blythe! on: April 17, 2007 07:58:53 AM


My Josie was so jealous of all the Rapunzel love going on around here, that she had to join the fun! LOL

It's made from Classic Elite Premiere, SWTC Bamboo, Malabrigo, and a novelty yarn I lost the band to!
Thanks for looking, comments always welcome!

Yeah, I totally ran out with just the straps left on my first try, and Yarnmarket had just run out of the color I picked! (2 balls Sirdar Snuggly.)

How about adding an extra stitch or two to the single knit channels, between the yo's?
27  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Razor cami knitalong? on: April 10, 2007 11:25:29 AM
No problem! I just increased one into the stitch belonging to the back portion, and voila! Matched sides! LOL I know how frustrating knitting a project can be, when you get to that one point, and you're like what do I do now? Craftster's great like that! Pics when you're finished?  Grin

Well, I guess that's preference, really. I worked in the pattern to where I split (at the end of a section,) and then added an extra stitch, so that the sides would match (k1 yo razor shell column yo k1.) I planned to seam it into the side, when I sew the back ribbing to the front, at the sides, so it wasn't noticeable. Does that help? I can try and be more specific, or maybe take a pic if you need?

Also, I'd suggest NOT splitting half your stitches for the front, unless you are super tiny! I found 6 sections (out of 15 for me,) were plenty wide enough for the front. If you split half, it might end up too wide, just FYI!!!

I'm not quite sure what you mean, when I count the sts in the pattern I get 12. I haven't started the back ribbing for my second attempt, but I remember I didn't have any problems with extra stitches at the top-back of my first (only running out of yarn!)

(k1, yo, k4, sl-k2tog-psso, k4, yo) 1+1+4+1+4+1=12 Are you counting stitches to the sides of the YO channels? One of them should be counted, and the next is part of the next sequence of 12. Does that make sense? (I used markers to help me keep count easier.)

Isn't the lace pattern is multiples of 12, not 14? That adds up to 13 repeats when you've got 156 sts. and there shouldn't be any need to decrease sts when you start on the lace patt. after the ribbing.

That's what I thought... with multiples of 12, I didn't have to decrease any on my first try on the back ribbing section. Since the ribbing is in multiples of 4, and the lace in multiples of 12, and you can fit 3 repeats of the ribbing in each lace section, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the pattern, to me.
