1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: wtf garter stitch?! on: April 20, 2010 02:25:56 PM
Definitely not a fail... knitting has so many terms to learn that it takes ages to get them all down!  Now you know you're on the right track for your project Smiley 
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: stockingette in the round on: April 20, 2010 02:22:54 PM
If you are knitting in the round and find your right side is on the inside it is because you are knitting on the part of the round knitting that is away from you.  you won't be able to do what I'm about to suggest w/ your toy project, but if you were knitting a tube (sock, sweater, etc) and your right side was on the inside, just flip the knitting through the needles (basically turn it right side out) and continue knitting with the needles closer to you.  This won't affect the knitting at all, but will show you the difference in needle position in relation to the knitted work and your body.  Sorry if the explanation doesn't make sense, trying it should help...

I agree, it should be fine to reuse yarn and like soozeq said, a couple of times is fine, but not more than that.

If I'm doing a gauge swatch and I need to change needles I just keep knitting on the original swatch and where I change needles do a series of k2tog, yo the number of times to match the needle size.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Social Stigma of Public Display of Knit-fection on: September 15, 2009 01:20:40 PM
I knit in public all the time.  People pretty much leave me alone though.  My family assures me I come across as rather unapproachable. 

Maybe my husband should take up knitting.  He likes to be unapproachable.  Grin

iPod + knitting - eye contact = no questions  Cool

Wow awesome top!  I love the pleating, too.

I used a dress pattern a few years ago that gave a recommendation for avoiding pointy darts and it works pretty well...
Sew along the dart line like normal (from edge of fabric to folded edge of dart), but don't sew to the very edge and back stitch like normal.  Instead right before you get to the folded edge of the dart turn a little and sew along the fold for a couple of stitches.  When you stop stitching don't back stitch; cut your thread long and tie it off, then cut close to the fabric. 

9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Fridge Dill Pickles on: September 08, 2009 03:26:18 PM
I had no idea you could do fridge pickles!!  I just took a canning class on pickling and learned how to do fermented and sealed-jar type pickles.  The fridge idea sounds so awesome since they're edible almost instantly Smiley 
I learned in my class why garlic turns colors and how to avoid it, but of course I forgot...

Great dress!  I need something like that for work Smiley  Did you draft it or use a pattern?  If you used a pattern, which one?
