1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone make things like this??? on: September 29, 2007 12:27:25 PM
HAH!! Under "press" it also gives the EXACT yarn they use!

*goes off to price Karabella Supercashmere*

In their "press" section, did anyone else find it funny that they had five things listed and three of them were just bookmarking sites like wists and stylehive, and the others were blog entries and comments which were actually discussing how overpriced and silly the products were.  I also found their "About us" section nauseating ("a joyous courtship"?  "the knitting atelier"?  Holy abundant pretentiousness batman).

Thankyou!  A logical explanation and a monitory example: just what I needed :-)
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Turned hem - question on: September 29, 2007 06:35:15 AM
Just a quick question: I'm knitting Anna Bell's Bridie and I'm altering the sleeves so they'll be wide with a turned hem.  I've checked out some other patterns with turned hems (like Serrano on knitty) and I was wondering why they're all cast on and knitted with smaller needles for the hem portion.  Can anyone tell me the reason for that, just so I can understand why it works.  Thankyou!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone made NOAH'S ARK, & animals, by alan dart? - knitting pattern on: August 18, 2007 01:26:59 PM
Argh!  I want to make this!  Or at least knit a crocodile and a toucan.  Although I'm concerned by the scale of those mice: I suppose Noah must have taken a pair of Rodents of Unusual Size on the ark.

Oh gosh I've just seen the ladybirds!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you wish people had told you before you started knitting? on: August 01, 2007 07:02:56 AM
Ok here are mine:
1) Don't try knitting your first lace project with mohair.  Mohair is ugly anyway.
2) Go to wists.com and sign up so you won't spend hours looking for a great pattern you saw online, can visualise, but can't recall the name of.
3) Sort out your mistakes if you can.  It takes more time, but you learn more and you finish up with a better object at the end (I have so many early projects I unravel now, which is way more wasteful of my time).

I really like the shrugs, especially the colours on the first one. Congratulations on your weight loss and best of luck for the future: you're beautiful already and I like your hair!

LOVE the dress!  Both FOs look awesome: you're very talented!

That is so cute: I love his skinny little tail!  Is the cozy easy to get on once the teapot is full?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ideas on what to do on my Razor Cami mistake? on: June 27, 2007 01:30:27 PM
I did a screw up making this, and I dropped the stitches around to try and fix it.  It didn't go well.  I recommend tinking it back: it seems like a waste of time, but unless you really know what you're doing you'll waste way more time fiddling.  On the other hand, I now have a way better idea of how YOs work after trying to construct them from dropped stitches!  Maybe you could try a lifelife and the dropping stitches and get the best of both worlds?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What's the best method to seam lace? on: June 27, 2007 01:23:09 PM
I made this last week and had trouble with the seaming too.  What I eventually did was only sew together the "knotty" parts (where the long stitches come together in the stitch pattern?) quite half-arsedly and then leave a stitch-length string between the knots so it looked a bit like the stitch pattern.  I think agonising about the seaming took longer than actually knitting the thing!  But you can't see the seams on mine and it hasn't fallen apart.  I thought of crocheting them, but I would be hesistant as it would look really thick and not be too stretchy.
