41  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can someone help me with Hawkwind Charting/Pattern? on: May 26, 2006 09:19:22 PM
Hi.  This will be my first 2-color project of this sort.  I'm thinking ahead to father's day and my dad is a huge Hawkwind fan, has travelled with them back in the day, etc, so I was thinking of making him an Ipod case with the hawkwind logo.  I have already made my hubby one with the DNA cable incorporated.  I worked in the round, over 40 sts and it seems to be a perfect fit (I used pretty small needles).  Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone could chart this, or write out instructions or point me in the general direction?  I've included 4 pics, whichever would be easiest.  I wouldn't want any of the text except for the band name.  I prefer working in black and white but, whatever.  I'm leaning towards working this on straights and seaming, but am open to whatever.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks so much!  Erika

I'd just want the top logo:


I really like this one, but would probably be too difficult:


Just band name and image:


42  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Please Help! Need to figure out how to interpret these instructions on: May 18, 2006 04:33:58 PM
Three for the Road Bag from "Bags a Knitter's Dozen", page 16:

This bag is worked in the round and opens kinda oddly.... But anyway, I'm really stuck on this.  I've already finished all my rounds for the base and body of the bag and am now  getting ready to start  on the top of the bag which should be worked back and forth.  There are 130 sts on the needles.  Here's what it's telling me to do.  Can anyone explain what to do here?  I must be understanding it wrong because I can't figure out how this would work if I do what they tell me to.  I understand the abbreviations, I'm just not able to figure out how to work the sts on the holder.

Top Sections (worked back and forth)
Place first 88 sts on hold, leaving 42 sts on needle.  (I take this to mean that put the first 88 sts that would be in the next round on a stitch holder)

Row 1:  Slip first st from holder to LH needle and K2tog with next st on needle, knit to last st, SL1, slip last st from holder to RH needle, SL2 unworked sts on RH needle back to LH needle and SSK.....
Row 2:  Knit
Repeat Rows 1 & 2 10 times more, leaving 110 sts including sts on holder

Next Row:  Bind off as follows:  K2tog (first st on needle with first st on holder), BO until 1 st remains on LH needle, ssk last st on needle with last st on holder, BO remaining sts - 66 sts on a 2nd holder.  Place 24 sts on a separate holder, 42 sts on needle ready to work a WS row, leaving remaining 24 sts on 1st holder.  Work Rows 1 and 2, using sts from appropriate holder, 12 times - 22 sts (including 1 st on each holder)

Next Row:  Bind off as for other Top
43  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Doh! Help needed for Mother's Day.... on: May 11, 2006 12:21:38 PM
I was thinking it was next Sun, not this coming Sun.... so I'm in a rush to make 2 gifts that are fairly quick knits but warm weather appropriate (no scarfs, shawls or gloves).

Recipients are my mom 52 but still pretty hip.  And hubby's grandma, 88

Please, please help me come up with something.  I've got a bigger version of the cabled bag on the needles right now, about 1/3 done.... so that could go to one of them theoretically.

Oh, and I made my mom a spa themed b-day gift so no bath/shower thingies for her.  =)
44  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Plankton KAL? on: May 10, 2006 02:50:11 PM


Hi.  I am a newbie here and fairly new to knitting (about 4 months or so) but have been cranking out lots of stuff and recently conquered cables.  Anyway, thought I'd jump in and start something here.  I have a love of all things plankton, so I'm thinking - maybe a plankton KAL?  Could be a little stuffed one, or a cell phone/ipod cozy or whatever.  I have nothing specific in mind yet so am open to ideas.  I just kinda wanted to throw out the idea and see what people come up with.  I tried to insert a pic, we'll see if it works. 
45  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Twist & Knit? on: May 09, 2006 11:11:23 AM
Looking over the Fake-a-gamo pattern and trying to figure out WTF twist & knit means?

for example - drop 11, twist & knit

I feel like a moron, but want to make sure I do this right as I hope to whip it up by mother's day. 

Thanks!
46  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need Help with DNA Cable Scarf Chart on: May 07, 2006 06:00:00 PM
Hi!  I am just getting to the point where I can sorta read graphs and this one totally throws me off.  Can someone either A) tell me how to read this one or B) translate for me?  I prefer written out instructions over charts.  But, I'll be thrilled with whatever I get.  I think somehow the RS/WS rows on this chart are backwards or something.... which makes it impossible for me to understand.  TIA!
