Caitfish,
Thank you thank you thank you.
Your blog is really good, by the way. I've been thinking about starting my own but am not sure I have the time. Further, I found out that if I were a villian, I'd be Clayface which is just not nearly as cool as being Poison Ivy.

It's so cool that you read my blog!  I'll have more knitting pr0n up soon, though nothing so ornate and fabulous as yours!  

*snort* Clayface?  That's you in the pictures, right?  Clayface is *quite* a stretch.  Wink

That is such a beautiful top.  I love that you've continued to post your patterns for free, but you could definately sell them - and there is nothing wrong with making money for such exemplary creativity.

It's on my list!

Woo-hoo for starting the new mexico board/thread.

My only addition would be Buffalo Exchange, in Albuquerque....

Where is "around here"?  I do shop at Buffalo, and I trade there - but I don't consider it a thrift store.  It's not exactly a place you would go to find something to rip up and reconstruct.  

It's all about Albuquerque, though.   It's the most creative place I've ever lived, which isn't really saying a whole lot. :B

Here's the skully that I promised to post ages ago.  I was kickin' a pretty funk stomach virus last week, so don't look above the neckline, eh?



Wow, awesome job!

..sigh.. okay, if you say so.  Embarrassed  i'll frog it. second time is faster anyway, right? Smiley

i should have stopped when i felt like something was wrong. thanks for answering my k tbl question. i don't even need a diagram for that one!

Second time is always faster!  And you'll get the extra experience.  Don't worry, everybody frogs.  You're welcome!  I hope it helps.

What yarns/colors are you using for the socks?

even if you end up with an unequal number of stitches after picking up, you need to either increase on one side or decrease (knit 2 together) on the other so that you end up with an equal number before you get very far, otherwise i think you may end up with a wonky sock!

i did that! Smiley i hoped it was right.. but i think there are a couple numerical typos in that pattern.. i also couldn't figure out what the heck "k tbl" meant when picking up the stitches.

this is only my second set of footwear, but it seems to be coming along o.k.

I am glad that it turned out okay!  Post pictures after you're done!  And k tbl means knit through back loop.  This just indicates which part of the stitch to pick up so that you don't get a jog.  I wish you could draw little diagrams in this forum, it would be so mucheasier to explain!  But basically, you're picking up one loop in the little "v" that is the knit stitch.  Pick up the half of the "v" that is farthest back from you.

hey caitfish! did you find a weird stitch-count error when picking up the side stitches after turning the heel? i ended up with 18 on one side and 14 on the other.  Huh

i don't think (i hope) it'll be too noticeable. i can't tink that far back.

I did something similar with the first sock, and it made the heel far too large.  Just a couple of extra rows can really weird this pattern out.  I really suggest that she rip it and go back to when she was knitting in the round.  That's what I did and they turned out great.

[Hehe.  Thanks!  What colorway did you get?  That's what makes these so special, of course.

I got Inspiration #5021- it's shades of blues, eggshell, and black.  

Where did you find your elastic thread, online or at a LYS?  All we have is a tiny, woefully understocked Ben Franklin here, unless I drive 3 hours to Miami.  (Of course, the real question is, what on earth will I do with wool kneesocks in Florida, but I'll address that when I'm done!)


Ooh, that color is very nice.  They will be beautiful to wear in winter and spring.

I got my elastic at my LYS (the best in the world, I swear - if I want something, they always have it) but I am sure you can get it online.  It's called "Rainbow String Elastic" and it comes on a little card.  It should be about $2.  You won't use a fourth of that one card, trust me, so only get one!

I don't know what I would do without my lys.

Cast on, ribbing, knit in the round (on double pointeds), increase, decrease, and kitchener stitch.

No, I had... and I don't have the pattern here, but I think it was 14 picked up stitches on each side.  I did get a tiny little jog on both sides of each sock when I started knitting in the round again after picking up those stitches, though.

4 stitches is a lot here.  I recommend that you frog it back to before the heel, because it sounds like you situated your heel flap unevenly when you started working it.
