191  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help! What to do with leftover bulky yarn? on: September 27, 2007 06:32:10 PM
Ohhh... I had to google what a panta was, I like that idea.  I already have a scarf in the orange, perhaps a matching panta is in order.  The problem with this bulky wool is that I'm moving to Hawaii in two weeks, so I'm not currently thinking of all those fun cool weather projects... Although I could make pantas for people on my Christmas list! 

I've started on Urchin with the grey, and am having a little bit of trouble with the pattern.  I need to give it some more effort, then I might have to start looking around for help!

Thanks everyone for helping me brainstorm

I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted to buy this book or not - but now I'm definitely getting it!  Your version of this top looks fantastic!

Wow, that looks fantastic.  Great job!

The way you deciphered it looks right to me.

It's typically a good idea to do your increases and decreases one stitch in from each edge, this makes seaming easier. 
For example on a RS row:  K1, K2tog, K15 (or however many are in the row), K2tog, K1. 

Unless the pattern specifically says to knit a certain amount of stitches before the increase or decrease, you'll want to do them at the edges of the piece.

Hope that is helpful!

Wow, why didn't it occur to me to make hats, especially seeing as I've been browsing the new Knitty issue.  I'm gearing up to head to the tropics, so it's hard to think of hats!

I like the Urchin idea, then I can learn a new CO method as well!

Wow, that's beautiful!  I love the shaping on the neckline too!

Bobble stitch!

Depending on how large the doll is.. That URL has instructions for smaller ones, or as previously suggested in the Boobies Scarf from Knitty.

I know this is a cotton/silk blend but I'm not sure about the proportions.  I think there will be less give and stretch with the silk in there at least while you're knitting it, but I'm not sure what the finished result would give you.  Have you finished and blocked a swatch yet to see how much stretch you get after blocking?  One option is to go with the bigger size, but do a couple inches of ribbing on both sides where you'd seam.  That way it will shrink up the size, but the give will be there if you need it.

I love bulky wool yarns, but I've ended up with an small array of leftover balls and portions of balls.

Does anyone have any ideas on what I could be doing with these?  All are 100% wool but seem awfully bulky for felting... Plus most are Rowan and I think I'd feel really guilty if I felted it!  The project on the left is something I started to learn short rows, and got bored with.

Since I'm a noobie I can't post the photo of the leftover goodies directly, but here's a link:

Thanks in advance for the suggestions!
