21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Baby Blanket Question on: December 31, 2009 03:33:44 PM
I have a 5y/o and another one on the way and have done a lot of reading on baby stuff lol.  So far, from what I've found, it really just depends on the babys skin.  It shouldn't be a problem. I didn't even use baby detergent with my daughter and we had no problems with her skin at all.  If it -does- happen to bother the baby, the parents can simply just wash the blanket again in whatever detergent they use once or twice and the problem will be fixed.  Good luck!
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HELP! - Loose stitches in my ribbing on: December 27, 2009 02:33:16 PM
I taught myself to knit and have been doing pretty well with it.  My problem right now is my ribbing... and well, in turn my cabling too.  What's wrong: Say I'm using a 2x2 rib, the stitch on the right looks perfectly fine, but the stitch on the left is loose and slightly open.  I have tried holding the yarn tighter for the second stitch and just keeping the tension even all across and still end up with the same problem.  It also effects my cabling.  No matter how nice it is, the final stitch on the left is too loose and just makes everything look stupid.  Is this something that I just have to keep working on and will eventually fix? If I wash it, will the yarn even its self out (I'm using acrylics right now until I find something I actually do well enough to use my wool with)?  I have also tried pulling the finished off piece in all different directions but, it just goes back after it relaxes for awhile.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you so much for your time.

Picture added:
It's a bad picture, but you can see on the column where the needle points, my ribs have a space in them.  This is a 1x1 rib, when I do a 2x2 rib, of the two knit stitches facing me, the one on the left is always open like these are but the one on the right is always nice and tight.  Hope that helps some.

That's awesome. I love how different yours is, all I've ever seen before is the long rectangles. how do you finish off the ends so they don't come undone??? I haven't figured out how to do that yet?  Is there a specific tutorial online you used?

Hello again.  I found a another scarf that I want to knit with a yarn that's almost exactly the same as the one this is made out of.  Do you know how to make that large circle in the diamonds and are those wide spaces just made with bigger needles?

(I know I'm all over the place with what I want to do, sorry)

You.  Are.  God.  Those stupid little boxes had me so freakin' confused.  That also leads me to another question... So, the boxes with the YO's, just make that row in the patter look wider than it actually is.  Is that right???
