1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help with cabled brioche scarf on: January 02, 2008 08:23:59 PM
Thanks, soozeq, it's only my 2nd try with cables, so trying it without the brioche first is definitely a good idea.

The yarn is a filatura lanorata alpaca- a deal at Smiley's NY yarn sale!

I just finished knitting one of ysolda's hats, with cables, which you don't want- but the pattern was very well written and I love the result. Here are 2 (simpler) others of hers, which I think are pretty:

I got Knitpicks Harmony for Chanukah, and am loving them! I'd always used bambo, and the wood is a close match. The tips are pointier than I was using, and I'm finding that to be a plus. But basically, I agree with what others have said, that it really depends on what kind of needles you prefer in the first place.
Happy shopping!

The scarf I'm making looks like this:

but is supposed to look like this:

Sorry my pic is a little blurry, but basically the cabled bits are not attached to each other, very spread apart.
This is the pattern.
Now, it's my first try at brioche. Is there something I'm missing? Like, does every row I knit really count as 2 rows or something? Sorry to be giving so little info as I ask for help, but I'm really at a loss. Thanks!!

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Curled bound-off edge :( on: November 12, 2007 06:20:24 PM
I'm making convertible mittens, with just a bound-off edge inside, instead of partial fingers. Unfortunately, that bound-off edge is curling, like so:

I shoulda thought of this and done a little rib before binding off. Any way to fix it from here without unraveling and adding that ribbing?

Great stuff! I, too, am partial to that skirt...it's going on my Ravelry queue now!

It looks great! I hope you find it wearable after blocking. Fingers crossed...

Thanks guys!

It's in Knitting Without Tears. The secret message idea was actually in there Smiley.

There's also a general description of how to make it on brooklyn tweed's blog, which may suffice for more experienced knitters. But the book is worth having, I think.
