Hello to all of you wonderful people, here at craftster. I hope that you're all having a great day.
I have a few questions and, I'm really hoping that you could help me out.
First of all, I bought some beads to make some stitch markers. Because the cheap Red Heart ones break on me and, the only ones available to me are in a small box with assorted sizes.
In order to get all of the sizes and number of stitch markers that I need, I'd have to buy a few boxes.
But, why bother if they're just going to keep breaking on me?# 1 -
Sorry I don't know the name of what I actually need to make my own stitch markers but, they're closed rings with smaller closed rings attached to it.
To the smaller attached closed ring, I attach my pins and beads.
BUT I need those closed rings with smaller closed attached rings, in different sizes. Mainly the most popular sizes.
As small as possible in case I want to knit up some socks, would be great.
And in larger sizes, as well.
Definately, in the more popular sizes. Like 4 mm, 5 mm and 6 mm.
Hopefully in 1/2 sizes as well.
Would anybody happen to know of a good web site
that would sell these closed rings, with the smaller closed rings attached to it?
So that I can make my own stitch markers.
And hopefully they'll also sell the pins too. Because the ones that I bought, I'm not sure if they're strong enough.
Hopefully a site that would also carry a good assortment of other knitting supplies, as well. Possibly a good assortment of yarns and, maybe buttons too?# 2 -
Also, I'm in need of a good tutorial on how to pick up stitches.
Would anybody happen to know where I could find a good tutorial, about this?
One that shows step-by-step instructions and, has clear coloured photos?
One that is good for printing out. Very easy to understand.# 3 -
And one more thing that I was wondering about.
When it says in a pattern to pick up and knit stitches.
Do you just pick up a stitch or, do you in fact pick up the stitch and somehow knit it?
I would love a good explanation of this.
Thank you very much everyone and I'd appreciate it if anyone could point me in the right direction, and help me out.
Have a wonderful day and, happy knitting all!
