1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / 2 skeins of Louisa Harding Kimono Angora- Suggestions? on: January 27, 2007 09:46:05 PM
Sorry if I posted this twice! Here it is:

Yarn: Louisa Harding Kimono Angora
Size: 25g (125 yards) per skein
Needles: US 6
Web site: http://louisaharding.co.uk/GR%20yarns.html
(it's in the 2nd row, middle)

I got 2 skeins of this yarn on sale and was going to buy the book, Louisa Harding: The Accessories Collection but I was too cheap. I wanted to make the beanie in the book but figured I could find a similar pattern on the internet. Since I'm not too experienced with hats, I thought I'd recruit some craftsters to help me out here. It doesn't have to be a hat in particular but I'm not too sure what else I could make (the skeins are pretty small).

Thank you!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitty's Branching Out (2 photos) on: January 04, 2007 05:54:04 PM
Welcome, ladies and gents. Here is my first lace scarf, knitty's branching out. Pattern: http://www.knitty.com/issuespring05/PATTbranchingout.html

It's actually a belated Christmas gift for my Mom (she picked the yarn) and, although some parts are a bit messy, I'm pretty proud of it. It's made with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in dye lot 300630 on size 8 needles. I'd like to make a green one for myself with a very light and airy yarn. I love stretching it a little bit to see the holes around the leaves; it's an awesome pattern!





Thank you for looking!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Is bicolour knitting dificult? (ie. Fair Isle and Intarsia) What about dpns? on: October 28, 2006 11:59:08 AM
Hello!

I can purl, knit and do cables but have never tried bicolour knitting. What is the difference between Fair Isle and Intarsia? I would really like to try one of them but I'm scared! Is it hard?

I'm also frightened of dpns and circulars. (Seeing a pattern here?)

Thank you!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Wanted: Shrug pattern knit in a rectangle then folded in half and seamed on: October 14, 2006 10:45:11 PM
Howdy  Cheesy

Okay, here's the deal: I want to make a shrug by knitting a rectangle, then folding it in half and sewing up the seams (leaving space for armholes). I hope that makes sense!

Here is the exact type of shrug on the lionbrand web site:

http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/50902A.html

The problem is I don't want to use the yarn in that pattern and, with a different yarn, I have no idea how many stitches to cast on.

Thanks so much!!!
