1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: anyone for Knitty's I Do? on: May 09, 2005 09:47:05 AM
I just finished the first sleeve and am at this point in the pattern, and ma confused:

ok, it says "Round 60: P3Tog, p4, yo, p1, yo, p4, m1, turn"

turn what? which way?  inside out, flip it around, what? and do i stop after m1 and turn it or is that the pattern for the rest of the round?

i've never taken something from knitting in the round to knitting flat, and have no idea how. help me finish i do before it becomes i don't!

I am so close to beginning the raglan shaping (first ever raglan shaping, so bear with me here) and have a question:

When the pattern says to BO 7 stitches at beginning of next two rows, am I meant to BO 7 stitches at each side of the next two rows, or 7 stitches on the RS and then 7 on the WS? It seems like the first way would make more sense, but I don't know...

help please!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Good summer patterns? on: February 25, 2005 12:27:31 PM
I just recycled my first sweater, a cotton blend. I've never knitted with cotton before--I'm a wool kind of gal--so any recs for cool summer patterns?

I'm in! I've got about 9 inches done, and I'm facing the 'oh-g/d-i-hate-ribbing' challenge, so maybe the KAL will help beat the ribbing nightmare. I'm using a golden/chocolate/brown alpaca/merino blend that I got from knitpicks.com for $2.89 a skein, and it's so lush. I love it.

This is definitely one sweater I want to wear much more than I want to knit it--so whoever said that, I totally, totally agree. I'm thinking of slightly longer sleeves, as well. I love all the changes to the pattern you guys have made!

The flowers are the hardest part, and they're really surprisingly easy once you figure out the pattern. i'm making the earwarmer this weekend. it is such an addictive pattern--and btw, perfect for pixie-haired girls!

It's good to hear good reviews about Scarf Style! I got it with a Hanukkah Barnes and Noble GC and can't wait to get it; I love to knit scarves and shawls!

I've come across two that I like: one from SNBN, from the Head Huggers pattern. Very, very simple and very cute, especially with variegated yarn. And also, the newest Vogue Knitting has a nice one by Nicky Epstein that knits up to look like a rosebud; it's intended to be felted. Both are really, really simple and take only about 10-15 minutes each!

I liberated a skein of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino from my mom's stash, some amazing Noro Iro from my sister, and in about 3 hours had the neckwarmer! It is amazingly cute (I don't know how to post pictures yet, but will try to) and the flower pattern takes about 10 minutes and knits up some really lovely flowers. Highly recommend this pattern--I don't think you need much in the way of skills, so it's a great advanced beginner type thing!

Finished mine in one day--start to finish maybe 6 hours? Made it in a nice charcoal with Wool-Ease, and I think it could become my standard hat-for-a-gift pattern, since it was so easy and fun to knit--plus it looks really impressive and harder than it is!
