1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do self-striping yarns work? on: August 06, 2007 08:36:30 AM
Thank you all! Smiley And when I said "gauge can vary throughout a project," I just meant that some days people knit looser, and some days people knit tighter. I know that gauge is important.

OMG I thought I was the only one who wanted to do this! Great job putting it into action!  Smiley
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How do self-striping yarns work? on: August 05, 2007 05:23:14 PM
I used to think that it had something to do with gauge, but gauge can vary throughout a project. I bought a hank of Mountain Colors "Bearfoot" the other day, which I assume is a self-striping yarn, and it said "between so-and-so and so-and-so stitches to the inch." (I can't remember the numbers.) This would suggest that gauge isn't all that important. So now I'm confused; how do these yarns work?

OH! I see! the thing in the book was about seeing grids in the individual blocks, but your post was still very informative, so, thank you!

9  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / (Stupid) Underlying Grid? on: July 27, 2007 03:30:36 PM
I'm reading Quiltmaking by Hand, by Jinny Beyer, and she talks about seeing the "underlying grid" in quilting patterns. It's making me very frustrated. The method she describes just isn't "clicking" for me. She claims that her way is the easiest, which implies that there are other ways to do this thing. Can anyone tell me how they do this, or at least clairify her instructions? Thanks!

So people are funny, others just scare me...

My friend is knitting, I'm crocheting.  I get up to go throw something away and this chick comes over and she's like "whatcha doin?"  My friend says "oh well, I'm knitting and my friend over there was crocheting."

Random chick:"wait... like... isn't crochet like... a sport?" 

LOL, I guess she was thinking of croquet.
