1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Can someone help me identify this type of bracelet? on: December 11, 2010 02:55:06 PM
I'm interested in learning how to make these, but have no idea what they're called to even begin looking for tutorials.

When you knit, your yarn should be behind your working needle, and when you purl it should be in front. By not swiching it according to which stitch you're doing, you create yarn overs.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I desperately need your help!!!! on: June 25, 2008 12:31:32 PM
Tried to get help on ravelry, but my thread is always pushed off the board before it gets many reads.
I'm currently working on my first cardigan (Hexacomb cardigan) having only previously finished socks and 1 dishcloth, so I don't have all that much experience.
I'm at the point where I have to divide for the fronts and back, it tells me to work the stitches for the right front in pattern, bind off 8, work back stitches in pattern, bind off 8 again, then work for the left front, & place stitches for right and back on seperate holders.
Now, I've only had to bind off once...ever. That was even months ago. I found instructions for the basic knit bind off, and it seems as if I do that, when I go to knit the back, since the yarn will still be hanging from my working needle, I'll connect the pieces together when they should be seperate. Do I cut the yarn after the bind offs? What bind off should I use?
This isn't clicking in my head, for some reason. I've been breezing through everything else, but this whole cardigan thing is confusing.
Someone please enlighten me! I would be so ridiculously grateful.

I'm working on a cardigan using Tahki Stacy Charles-Sky yarn, and my first skein had 5 knots in it. 5!!!! All in the same general area too, all 5 knots were in a span of about 10 rows of knitting. I haven't had any in my second skein yet.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I don't know where I started my sock! on: March 20, 2008 03:53:15 PM
Okay, after successfully completing a dishcloth and a cabled scarf, I decided to move onto a pair of socks. I had a real hard time with the first one, had to cast on several times and rip out not even a full round later. When I finally got the hang of it, I was so excited that I forgot to place a marker when I joined in the round. I have no idea where I started! I used a long tail cast on, so that string is still dangling, but I don't know where the join is in relation to it. Can someone help?

Ooh! I love it. The yarn is a beautiful color and it looks like it fits you so well.

That outfit is precious, and I suppose that's her room behind her in the first pics? It's awesome. You're lucky to have such a little lady for a daughter, NONE of my friends can get their daughters to cross their legs.

Couldn't make it to the post office yesterday. We had our first bad snow of the year, go figure. The roads were sooo bad that I couldn't even tell if I was actually on one while I was on my way to work. No one was prepared for it so the roads didn't get salted or anything. I work until 3pm today  Sad so it looks like I'll be shipping on the 25th.
