1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: A Series of Cautionary Tales or What NOT to Do in Knitting on: September 01, 2006 02:41:49 PM
I really appreciate this post.  I thought I was the only one who had to reknit things over and over and over to get them right!  I too have a bunch of FO's that just didn't work out Embarrassed  I keep on seeing these beautiful sweaters posted on craftster and it seems that some knitters don't have any problems!  However, I can be a perfectionist...

excellent job!  the two ring system is a great idea...I may have to use that myself.  I have been wanting to make my own stitch markers for some time now but didn't want to delve into yet another craft and all the tools!  thanks for the inspiration.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Interchangeable Needle Sets - pros? cons? Let's hear 'em! on: August 15, 2006 12:10:07 PM
hi.  I just recently got a set of Boye off eBay for about $25.  I was researching the different sets of interchangeables too but didn't want to shell out lots of $$ if I didn't like them.  Here are my thoughts:

1.  it is great having all the sizes and lengths at your fingertips.  the versatility is awesome.  you can even use the cords with a stopper on the end to use as longer knitting needles or they are great as stitch holders instead of scrap yarn.

2.  what I don't like about Boye:  they are incredibly heavy!!  especially the larger sizes like 15.  I don't like the finishing on some of the needles (they are aluminum).  I think the Denise are much lighter in weight but I have not tried them.  I think when I really feel like investing in some good interchangeables, I will go with what I really like: bamboo or the nicer KnitPics.  hope that helps.

Paton's wool is not that thick, even with two strands.  I am surprised that it turned out so nice!  I also knit the handles an inch and a half too long so the handles kinda flopped over and didn't stand up strait.  I was so dissapointed after all the work I had put into it!  As for blocking this bag, you can stuff with shopping bags and balled up newspaper and it holds it shape very nicely.

Your Lopi bag looks great!  I too tried this pattern but with a different yarn than called for.  However, I made mine too long and it didn't shrink enough and it looks like a big bucket  Undecided

maybe I will try to make this one again.  How many strands did you use of Paton's wool?

Could this pattern be just knit in the round on circulars?

thanks

you could request the issue through your local library's interlibrary loan service.  I have requested the summer IW knits and am thinking of ordering a few of the others.

that is a really cute original project.  i love the color.  it would look great with one of those toggle type wooden buttons.  thanks for the inspiration!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is the most inappropriate place you've seen people KIP? Discuss. :) on: July 22, 2006 08:54:46 PM
I was told about a professor knitting during a college graduation ceremony.  this lady was not sitting in the stands but was seated with the graduating class.  I thought that that was a little inappropriate even though graduation ceremonies are extremely boring.  I would love to knit during class but I can see when not giving your full attention is disrespectful (it's like when you are talking to someone and they are not looking at you).  that's my two cents!
