Now I'm at a lost.


First Cable Round: [CB, p1(2), k4, p1, k4, p1(2)] twice.
Work 9 rounds in Rib Pattern.

There are 13 stitches in it done twice ... is 26 stitches. But there are 21, 11, 12 stitches on the needles respectively.

What do I do?

I don't for the life of me understand. I p2, cable back, k4, p1 then work the stitches off my cable needle. Then I'm left with 18 stitches.

Keep reading along in the pattern -- basically, what you're doing is putting the stitches for the thumb on hold by putting them on waste yarn and then continuing on with the rest of the glove.  When you finish the body of the glove, you go back, remove the waste yarn, pick up the live stitches that you were holding with the waste yarn, and make the thumb.

And I guess that's supposed to sound easy.....


I'm starting tonight thanks for the help and wish me luck! Mathematically, I can see it in my head, and it makes sense... but logically (yeah that makes sense!) I just can't follow it!

Ok. I'm trying it

I'm stuck on the placing the thumb opening?
Place Thumb Opening
Next Round: Work 12[13] sts in patt, k5[6] using waste yarn; slip these 5[6] sts back to left needle and work them again, in patt, using working yarn; continue in patt to end.
Work 18 rounds in Rib Pattern.

I don't understand. I'm suppossed to work 12 stitches, knitting from my l needle to my r needle, knit 5 more the same way in wast yarn - move those 5 back to my left needle, knit them AGAIN, knitting once again from my left needle to my right needle.... and finish the row? I haven't started yet because that's throwing me off.

Help - they're a christmas present!

Not crafty, but magazine subscriptions always go over well here.

Hat scarves wrist warmers.....

sewn bedding.

And food. Really, food is a sure thing.

That's all I can think of!

8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / I'm spinning! Alpaca on a drop spindle on: September 24, 2007 12:09:43 PM
So my town (or actually the town over!) had an alpaca festival. I'd never heard of one, or even really knew what one was, I knew I'd probably be able to get fiber at a decent price.

Little did I know that Alpaca is a wonderfully soft, silky fiber. I am in love. A couple months back, I went crazy, thinking I was going to start spinning, I made myself a drop spindle, tried it (on batting that was specifically made for filling stuffed animals and the like) failed miserably and put it away.

I decided to buy some fiber, picked up a bag  and started spinning!

Pictures to come...

I made my drop spindle and am planning on making a few more toys.

On a side note, also interested in making my own knitting needles!

4.  Inventory my stash (I have about 1000+ skeins)

Just to name a few......

I wish I had 100 skeins!

And I'm making him a hat because we're too poor to buy him a nice hat.... and I can make him a nice one. I just was going through a pissy mood last night - I knit today and love it - go figure!
