4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Elbow Patches? on: August 07, 2006 09:06:07 AM
I am making a red wool sweater for my sweet DS (his request!) and need to find elbow patches appropriate for 5 year old elbows.  I am so afraid of him felting or piling the elbows of his sweater just being his 5 year old self.

Does anyone know how to make elbow patches, or where to buy them?

Any and all ideas would be appreciated!

They sure look like the needlemaster set, only higher quality (nickel finish, better cables, etc).  I wonder if they'll unscrew like NM...

AStringThing-- can we get a review when you get yours in?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: It's okay, because I have another eye and I can get by with one. on: June 17, 2006 09:28:48 PM
Don't feel so bad...  I tried teaching myself how to knit when I was a frosh in highschool.  I couldn't get past casting on.
So as an adult I had to try 3 count them 3 times (with a couple of years in between to calm down) before it "clicked".
I taught myself to crochet while I was waiting to chill out and found that when I started trying to knit again that continental was easier because it was a similar hand position.

So keep your chin up, put the needles down, take a deep breath, and a little break.  You'll get it eventually.

Best of luck!

Be careful not to tighten the connectors too much!  I got too enthusiastic with mine and split the connector (I used the key).  "hand tighten" only!  Have fun, I love my set!

I'm thinking that maybe silk city bought that company up because they have a yarn almost exactly like what you've shown.

Here's the link through elann:

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Mystery circs... on: May 16, 2006 10:50:38 PM
Okay, I went to the thrift store and scored a bag of yarn (Penimaid Lainette, ever heard of it Huh?), a mostly completed knit skirt (it fits!) knitted on size 3 needles, and two size three circular needles.

I can't figure out what brand circs they are and I really like them.  They are all metal and the cord is some kind of small coil, but its a smooth coil if that makes sense.  The yarn doesn't get caught up on them.

Since the only circs I've ever knit with were clover bamboo, susan bates, and boye I know they aren't those...

Can anyone solve this mystery?
