1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: help with Cherie Amour? on: January 05, 2008 09:10:03 AM
Thank you thank you thank you!

I am a silly girl. (Slaps forehead.) Cannot trust myself with yarn when I'm sleepy.

My puzzlement might be from lack of sleep due to late-night knitting, but:

The decrease lace chart. Um. Am I to repeat the *entire* charted row for the length of row 1, or am I supposed to follow the chart until I hit the "pattern repeat" box and then use that few-stitch pattern repeat again and again until I hit the last eleven sts, and THEN finish the charted row?

I hope that makes sense. I've been all over Craftster and the interweb trying to figure this out... Undecided

I like it when the red water comes out...

Gorgeous work! I've been meaning to knit up some Salad Fingers gloves; you've re-inspired me Smiley

Hi! I've just started, and noticed when I made the very first cable that it looked awry. Then I checked the Staghorn Cable in Barbara Walker's Treasury of Knitting Patterns and realized that I should be cabling 4 BACK first, then cabling 4 front.

The chart and key make it look the other way around. I haven't experimented to see how it looks the other way, but my sweater is turning out GREAT--thank you, helloyarn!! Finally something my dad will wear...

It looks like Berocco's Brea Bag (free pattern on their site!), but without the cabling. If I were making a couple for gifts, I'd make Brea in a bulkier, feltable yarn and felt away...of course, if it were for myself, I'd be a good doobie and buy the pattern like a good girl... Roll Eyes

Search Craftster for Brea Bag, and you'll see the oodles others have made.

Oh, I can top that.

My sweetheart discarded me in May, we haven't talked for months, and I'm still knitting him a scarf for Christmas. Cuz I lurve him. It's better than stalking, I guess. Hm. Maybe I should've knit him a stocking...

edit: Forgot to reiterate what all others have stated: you have yourself a gorgeous scarf, radically wondrous hair, and, no doubt, a better fella on the way.

After ages of lurking, I had to register just to tell you how FABULOUS these are.

I'm a tour guide on Boston's Freedom Trail, and have been meaning to design a knitted pair of mitts/muffatees for a long time--to go with my voluminous garb...so thanks for working it out for me!

And, though I try to remain authentic, I wouldn't use finer yarn, either. Your yarn choice is pretty close to what the heaviest weight probably was, so don't sweat it--they're gorgeous!
