2  CANADA / British Columbia / New knitting group in Vancouver! on: May 10, 2006 10:50:05 AM
Hey everybody, I started a new knitting group a few weeks back, and of course we're always looking for people who want to meet up, you don't even have to knit, any fabric arts is more than welcomed!  We meet twice a month, you can find more info here:

Just so you know as well, a lot of the stock is kept in back at Birkeland because they don't have a huge retail area (but the back is massive and is where their 100 year old carding machine is!).  Next time you're in ask, they probably do have it, it's just not in sight (or is high above on the shelves where you can't read the roving labels).

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I'm a knitting columnist! on: March 17, 2006 10:06:24 AM
It's true, yay!  And it even pays!

I wanted to post here and ask if anybody had any topic ideas they'd love to see discussed, no idea is a bad idea!  I want to be sure I'm writing on areas that people want to read about in the knitting and crochet world.  The actual area is over here:

There even discussions and stuff you can have over there (via a simplistic kind of message board), polls and all sorts of fun stuff.  It gets updated twice a week (on article on Tuesdays and a blog entry on Fridays) so I need lots of areas of discussion. 

This isn't just for knitting either, crochet too!  I didn't want to double post though, so I'm just posting it here Smiley.

Thanks everybody!

That's a cool idea!  But there's nothing listed for Vancouver, BC Sad

Perhaps I'll just have to submit some places.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you let a muggle down nicely when they ask you to knit something? on: March 01, 2006 10:00:49 AM
Whenever I get asked to knit people something, it depends on what I'm doing at the time.  First I explain to whoever asks just what is involved, usually that makes them go "wow, that's a lot of work!!".  Uhhh, DUH!  If I'm not working on anything else I'll take the person to the LYS with me and they buy the yarn, if it's not too big of a project for me at the time.

Would I ever knit somebody else a sweater or something like that?  Probably not.  I've only knit socks, scarves and toques for people - easy things that can be done in a day or two, just because I don't have a lot of time!

I've offered to teach a few people to knit, and one or two have taken me up on it.  Those are the people I don't mind knitting for the most, just because at least they're willing to learn and go through the process.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lace for the Lucky Clover SNBN top! on: February 24, 2006 10:25:00 AM
Hey all, I've never knit lace before although I've been knitting for a few years now.  I know how to ssk, k2tog, etc. so I should be able to follow the pattern easily, right?

I decided for my first lace project I wanted to do the lucky clover wrap.  I know there's a few of you who have knit it before on these forums, so I'm hoping for some help because I cannot for the life of me figure out what I'm doing wrong.

So I'm starting myself a little swatch, and I'm horrified to see despite the fact I'm following the pattern correctly (as far as I'm aware?) the clovers are NOT coming out right.

So here's how it's supposed to look:

Here's how mine works:

This is the lacing pattern:
Rows 1 & 7: K

Row 2 and all WS rows: P

Row 3: K2, yo, sl1, k2tog, psso, yo, *k5, yo, sl1, k2tog, psso, yo* rep from * to * to end

Row 5: K3, yo, ssk, *k6, yo, ssk* rep from * to * to end

Row 9: K1, *k5, yo, sl1, k2tog, psso, yo*, rep from * to * to end

Row 11: K7, *yo, ssk, k6*, rep from * to * to end

Row 12: P

..... Help?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lavender socks! on: February 23, 2006 10:00:12 AM
Lavender socks made just for a friend of mine because it was her request specifically, for lavender socks.  Of course since I could make them, I had to Wink.
