Thanks I think it might be best for me to do the crown in hdc or dc and then go from there.  I will try it out this weekend.

Thanks again!!
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting in rounds on: August 02, 2005 10:45:23 AM
As a knitter, I have been finding certain things in crochet a little hard to understand.  Forgive me in advance if this is a stupid question, I have been crocheting a ton of hats lately, but mostly in hdc and dc.  I bought a stitch bible (which cost me $30, so I am determined to get some use out of it),  so that I can be a little more creative, however, how do you adapt a stitch pattern to make it work in the round?  Like when there are 4 or 5 rows etc, do I just work 4 or 5 rounds following the directions for the rounds, and then start over, and what about the foundation row, since the first few rows are just increases, am I supposed to make allowances for that? 

I guess I am just really confused, and not getting the concept, so any help would be appreciated, thanks!!

Wow, thanks.  It is a tad pricey, but for 225 yards that's not so bad.  I just placed an order for a couple of skeins.

Thanks again.

OK so I know that Red Heart has camo colored yarn, and I LOVE the look of it, however, I have no intention of working with the stuff right now.  Does anyone know of any other companies, (not craft store yarn), that make it, I need to order me some ASAP.

I'm with you Gloriana, l actually let my subscriptions lapseto all of my knitting magazines a couple of years ago and only buy the mags that I know I will knit at least one thing from.  This one I won't purchase on principal just because of the poncho patterns, jeez isn't the poncho craze over already.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Cable 8 from Interweave Knits on: June 21, 2005 04:57:39 AM
That looks really nice.  I have been debating on and off for a couple of months now whether to make this, and then I saw on this guys blog that he made it with Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece and it looks gorgeous.  I might just have to break down and go pick up the yarn. 

And yes there is a mistake in the cabling pattern, info is on their website, and in the latest Interweave.

I  would like to be included in this swap.  I am a knitter, however this is the first swap that I have been involved in, so I might need a little hand holding.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: pay to sew the sweater? on: June 02, 2005 09:10:17 AM
They offer it in all of my LYS's, average price $35.  I hate to finish, so if it's something extra special for an adult, then I pay to get it finshed, (baby and kiddie stuff I do myself). Some people just don't like to sew their finished pieces together, (I absolutely hate sewing), and some stuff while wonderfully and excellently knit, can look like ass if it is not finished properly.  It happened to me once about 8 years ago with this Colinette cardigan that cost me a fortune, it looked like crapola because I didn't take enough care with the finishing.

I don't think it's unreasonable for you to get a professional to sew it up, Noro ain't cheap, so why not make it look the best it possibly can.  I would however suggest that you take a finishing class if you can, you will learn heaps.
