1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: So, what did Santa bring? on: December 26, 2007 09:47:28 AM
Santa brought me the Barbara walker treasury series!!! I've just thumbed through them so far but I am memorised!

Oh and a remote car starter already installed on my car (much needed around Atlantic Canada! Brrrr) and a Sirius satelite radio to go with it!

It's so cute!!  I need to add this to my queue.  Great job!

How about white buttons.  I put some on a darker coloured cardigan and got so many compliments on the buttons.  It works.  But I like the ones you have on there too.

You weren't given a translation?  Did you order straight from Phildar or get the book from your LYS? 

The last few time I bought Tendances, there was a black and white matte paper version of all the patterns in English inserted in the glossy book.

That turned out great.  I have  a question.  Is the pattern well written?  I tried to make the halter top from the book and the pattern was a nightmare, I spent far too much time re-writing the pattern to make the math actually work.  Is this more of the same?  Or better?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: could you help me knit this? on: September 09, 2007 06:46:27 PM
Ok.  that pic was much better.  It knit with a bulky yarn.  It seems that it's a small number of st st for the rope part (maybe 3 or 4) moving over the garter stitch background.  Then in the centre of the garter border there's a bobble every repeat.  Bobbles are usually made by knitting a large number of stitches together so it bulges. 

Here's a link toa tut on bobbles:

To travel the cable it basically involves crossing stitchs on every right side row until you have them to the edge, then moving them back to the centre.  I know I've seen that cable before but I can't remember the name.

I hope this helps

Do you have the link?  The picture is really small and sideways.  But I think I saw a bobble in there somewhere.

I love anything with paired decreases.  I just think they look so pretty and structured. I love increasing into the row below because it is sucha clean increase. And this is not really a stitch but I love fair isle.  It just makes me feel so clever.

I hate, hate, hate bar increases.  They don't stand out enough to be pretty looking, but when they are in the fabric it's all I can see.  And I hate knitting more than two or three stitches together.  As when i sit for an hour trying to get my needle through 7 stitches to knit them together.  Ugh.

Are you making it in cotton? If you are, 2 extra inches might be ok when you first but the tank on, but might bag out in a few hours. It really depends on what you want but negative ease is your friend when it comes to cotton.

I guess it would depend if that line comes before or after the instructions for the colour sequence.  If before a total of 6 times and after 7 times.

Is there a border on the afghan?  If not it may not even matter.  If there is look at the row gauge and then figure out if the pattern fits over 6 or 7 repeats.

So sweet.  Love it!

It looks like your problem with the weaving is just that you can see the spot where you weaved the ends in.  Just kind of rub the fabric around that area and it should blend it in.  Usually works for me.

Congrats on the first FO!!!
