1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: holes when increasing in mitten pattern on: August 24, 2009 03:39:39 PM
I'm glad you mentioned what type of increase. I was doing a different one from the one the pattern was designed for. That should fix it, I hope.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / felting superwash yarn on: August 24, 2009 06:58:48 AM
So I bought some yarn for various felting projects. The problem is that I didn't notice that it's superwash. I have tried to felt it just by running it thru lots of cycles, but it hasn't worked yet. Is there anything I can do to make it work? HELP! 
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / holes when increasing in mitten pattern on: August 24, 2009 06:55:13 AM
I've been using a mitten pattern that, of course, has some increasing. The problem I'm having is that where I've increased there ends up being holes. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

That's really nice. I think I might have to try something like it.

That's fantastic. And biologically accurate.

I've had this problem before. Depending on how often you're alternating between a knit or purl row, I've left a long tail where I've cast on and stuck up a post-it noting which end the tail should be at for knit or purl. I've also just made a tally of how many rows I've knitted or purled so far
Good luck
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / felting with partially synthetic yarn on: July 16, 2009 08:23:16 PM
Does anyone know if it is possible to felt with yarn that is part wool and part acrylic? I'm thinking that it should work but take longer and/or not shrink as much.
