1  Self-Taught and Picking up Stitches now with Picture! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by MysticZahn on: July 12, 2007 07:42:31 PM
I apologize ahead of time if I completely butcher the knitting vocabulary as I try to explain myself.  Total noob on the other side of the screen here.

I got a "Teach yourself to knit!" kit a few weeks ago because 1) it was on sale and 2) why not?

The instructions didn't have enough information for me to proccess the information adequately, so I went to my friend google.  And I found the knittinghelp.com page.  Sweet.

I know how to cast on, do the knit stitch, and cast off.

Here's my problem:
I started with 15 cast on loops.  And decided to stop because I had FREAKIN 32!!! I stopped because as an engineer, not conserving one of the fundamental laws of Matter freaks me out a bit.

Is this a common mistake for beginners?  And if it is, can someone explain the mechanics as to why if I FLIP my work, the mistake keeps popping up on the same side

I'll try to post a picture if I find the swatch.

Started from L2R.  Don't mind the curling at the right, that's from casting off too tightly.  I really don't know how I managed to add more on one side than the other.

Thanks in advance!!

2  Doctor Who and Torchwood Stencils! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by MysticZahn on: March 28, 2007 08:28:41 AM
Hey guys!  This is my first stenciling adventure because there is nothing better to do during spring break than to geek out.  Grin

Blue - Shirt for my mom with the TARDIS on the front of it.  I got the stencil from http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/art/howto/tshirts/materials.shtml.

Brown: My shirt.  The quote says "You could be squids for all I know!  A two squid transporter.  I reset the coordinates.  To the center of the sun.  It shouldn't be hot, I mean we sent her there at night and everything."  (From Season 1, Episode 7 of Torchwood).  It takes up most of the back.

The white piece of cloth was my tester piece, but I might make it into something.  Any ideas?

What do you guys think?  All feedback greatly appreciated.
