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.)
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.
at my high school, there is a knitting club and as the president (ha) i thought the products knitted could be donated, right? right. well we decided to make hats, but no one has circulars and when i tried to show them how to join in a round, they flipped and went on about garter stitch. blah!
so i was wondering if anyone had a flat hat pattern that can be sewn up the back? super easy peasy? something with needles on the large size too.
age: going to be 17 sex: girl and yes, she loves it interests: smoking, writing overdramatic screenplays, being wild, and her cats. she doesn't really "care" about the environment or even anything. this makes us complete opposites.
basically.. i can badly sew, crochet and kinda knit. but as far as ideas go.. i'm blank. i don't think she appreciate a half baked stuffed toy. she wants to be mature and is convinced she already 18.
any ideas? besides taking her shopping and driving her to the beach, i'm completely blank.
like i said, her and i are total opposites and i'm at a loss what'd she want. wahh help!
