1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Bitterroot shawl question on: December 22, 2009 10:49:45 AM
I really want to knit this beautifull pattern on Knitty: bitterroot
I've started twice, but always came to the point where I didn't know how to knit on. The instruction says "Work Rows 1-8 of Chart A once, then work Rows 9-28 three times. 153 sts." So I knitted row 1-28 but then I didn't know how to work on. I have too many stitches on my needle to make it even.
And I can't even tell my problem exactly.  Tongue Do I just have to work the stitches in red square? Or from stitch 1?
Please please help me!!!

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Handstitched fly (free translated) plus How-to on: June 03, 2008 03:17:00 AM
I love my book from 1976 "The practical handbook for every housewife". And there I found this so called handstitched fly. It was used to strengthen heavy-used parts of a garment like pockets or pleats. And I could use it for a jumpsuit I sew at the moment.
And it came out so beautiful that I also stitched it on the pockets of my trousers. Honestly I want to stitch it everywhere now.  Wink
On my trousers:

On the jumpsuit:

So, here is the picture from my book:

I'll try to translate the instructions:
Mark a isosceles triangle on the right side of your fabric. Go from the left corner the top with a little stitch from right to left (1). Then to the right corner of the triangle . And back to first stitch(2). Is just important to know that you set the stitches always thread besides thread(3) till the triangle is filled (4).

Hope that makes sense...
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / A stupid question about dishcloths on: April 21, 2008 01:55:10 PM
So, apologizes first, I'm not a native speaker. so, what are you doing with dishcloths? It looks like something we use here for touching hot pots to protect your hands. but my dictionary translated it so, that you actually scrub the pots with them while washing up or to wipe your dishes afterwards.
very confusing  Huh
5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / looking for a Starbucks cheesecake recipe on: April 05, 2008 07:12:05 AM
Hello, I'm obsessed with this cheesecake from Starbucks, but it's way to expensive for me. So if anyone knows a recipe that comes near the original?
6  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Knitting with beads - SKULL on: February 26, 2008 06:39:28 AM
I've made this for a friend who loves skulls
I thought that it'll take me not more than 2 hours. Ha Ha.
It was such a pain in the a to get the beads onto my thick yarn.
I tried the nailpolish trick mentioned in the book which leaves me sitting with red sticky fingers (I had only red nailpolish left) waiting for it to dry.
It never dries.
Then I invented a trick (clever me) which includes a needle, sewing thread and something we call Einfdelhilfe here.
6 hours later my present was ready.

She was very happy. that's all that counts in the end, isn't it?

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what are your favourite knitting books? on: December 12, 2007 10:54:10 AM
My mother want to give me some some knitting books for Christmas, but here in germany we only have some old-old-granny-style-books or some who stucked in the 80's without being cool. I already have the both stitch'n'bitch books, but I want more.  Amazon is a good source, but I don't like to buy a book by it's cover.
so, if you could help me out?
9  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / joey ramone doll HELP PLEASE!!! on: December 11, 2007 08:02:13 AM

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / am I stupid? on: December 05, 2007 05:58:30 AM
I really want to start my first knitted sweater. I want to knit "Lucky" from SnBN. but when I look at the pattern there's something I can't figure out, but I think it' easy, it just haven't clicked.
working the back, I have 106 st on the needle. then it says : Maint cont of st patt, dec 1 st at each edge of ext row, then every foll 9th row 3 times more - 98 sts
I can't imagine what this means. and I can't even explain what I don't understand. does it mean I have to increase 2 sts every row on the RS and every 9th row 3 sts till I reach 15''? But then I have increased far to much sts...
thanks for any help!
