i just finished spinning my first batch of roving. I have about 6 ounces and it would probably look nice knit up on 13's or 15's. Does anyone know what I can make? i dont want a hat, scarf, or purse (i have about a million of those!). would glampyre's one skein wonder be good?
okay, so this is a minisweater, but stilll, i think it merits its own post. my sister suggested that i put sequins on because i plan to wear it with formal things, and thats not too bad of an idea. the question is- where? how many? waht color? you tell me.
i was talking to my mom a few days ago, and she told me that she put me in a spinning class. i got so excited because i really wanted to learn how to spin yarn and had been telling her about it. then she said something about it being great for track, and how it wouldnt irritate my shin splints. then i realized. im in a stationary cycling class.
when corcheting, how do you decrease? i know how to increase, but i cant seem to find anything on decreasing. I was taught how to crochet when i was 6, then forgot it, learned knitting, then thought i should repsect the crochet too.
okay, so the new knitty has come out (is anyone as excited as me?) and i have immediatly fallen in love with cleaveshttp://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTcleaves.html. the question is- does anyone think that this would look okay with not so, how do I put it, poofy sleeves? like, not make as many increases? and i think you would just have to increase about 10-12 stitches, so where would i put these (increases)? thank you!
i want to knit myslef a sweater and the pattern calls for several lengths of circular needles. if i would buy, say a 16 inch needle made out of wood, and then a 32 inch addi-turbo, would my gauge make a difference? thanks in advance!
okay, so i knit both of the panel pieces for zeeby's bag- and now ive realized i dont like it, and i really dont want to go through with knitting all the other parts. so does anyone want to give me ideas for what to do with it? i thought maybe a pillow, a bag to give away (though it would be relutantly), or just add it to my big swatch quilt in the making? alos, i made it in lion brand woolease.
last year i was quite poor and didnt have any yarn to knit with, so i made a scarf out of fabric strips tied together. it got named by my friend steph the "nerds rope scarf." its a k2 p2 rib, 6 stitches, size 17 needles.
