1  Bike Help in Discussion and Questions by peacesign on: January 13, 2008 05:22:11 PM
Because I was accepted into college, parents bought me a bike. Here it is:


So far, I knit it a sweater along the top bar, teal and pea soup green stripes, and have a little basket for the front in the mail, I plan to sew a lining for it. Do you have any other ideas on how to make it cute?
Stereotypically I am a little indie girl, so like any other hipstah I crave to be original and creative. Fellow bike kids have adopted polaroids in the spokes and painting their bike neon colors. (I don't want to paint a brand new bike that I didn't buy.)

3  2 questions (pattern help and advice) in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by peacesign on: October 28, 2007 10:32:31 PM
Hi, I'm Ali and I've been knitting since January-ish. No problem so far except I'm knitting this hat:

Here's the link:http://knitonthenet.com/issue1/patterns/clochestashhat/

This is the part I do not understand at all: Change to 5mm DPN's by knitting across 48sts on first DPN, and the next 48sts with second, pick up and knit 20sts down open back seam of hat, then 20 up other side of open back seam with third DPN. (136sts).

Would you all mind helping me out?


Also, I have a question, I'm what you call a nervous knitter. Weird awkward social interactions result in me pulling out the latest project. People don't really care, but Dr. Shrink says that it's being used as an unreliable escape. But i disagree, it's relaxing and challenging, I could be smoking crack as such  "escape" What is your opinion? Do you knit to calm yourself and you're a tiny bit obsessed with yarn running through your fingers?

Thanks so much for any help offered, I appreciate it.

Ali

so i followed this most awesome pattern:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194445.msg2050958;topicseen#msg2050958. i just used size 11 circs instead...because i wanted it to go quickly.
