I made the "pescovegetarian" hat from Ravelry - it's such a satisfying pattern! In fact, I've made it several times, the otheres have gone to charity. This one's for me and it's a lovely yarn, even though it's not my usual colours at all!

Thanks for looking!

I made these for my sister-in-law for Christmas. It's a free pattern from Ravelry, inspired by the ones from Doctor Who (Doomsday episode). Hope you like them!

My mum just finished this - isn't she clever? She doesn't really use the Internet but I persuaded her to let me post it on here as I'm sure you guys will admire it! It's from a pattern out of a French magazine.

Thanks for looking!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / a question of selvages - can anybody help? on: January 06, 2009 11:04:00 AM
i've just finished knitting brooklyn tweed's noro striped scarf, using the method he suggested of slipping the first and last stitch of every 2nd row. it feels like the tension is much tighter on the edges where i carried the other colour, to the extent that my scarf has a bit of a curve along its length.

is that something i can fix by blocking it? or should i go back and reknit it - only i don't know any technique of tightening up the loose edge (between rows 1+2 of the same colour) or loosening up the tight edge (between row 2 of colour a and row 1 of colour b)

has anyone else found a similar problem? i'd really appreciate your feedback.

i used chunky yarn so cast on 66 stitches (for an adult head i'd probably do 72) and knit the seed stitch brim on 4.5mm, then the rest on 6mm. i wanted bigger ears, also both the inner and the outer flaps are done in stocking stitch whereas the original pattern wanted it done in seed stitch, i think.

here's a little hat i made way back in the summer, and have saved to give my niece for christmas. the purple yarn was from a bargain bin - it's really soft. the pattern was adapted from the kittyville hat. hope you like it! (i know she will wear it because she still wears the crappy black cat hat that was my first attempt when i learnt to knit)
