21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / another teeny dpn broke! on: June 25, 2006 03:39:34 PM
Ahh, I am in the middle of the foot of my first ever sock [the Embossed Leaves pattern from IK with Koigu KPPM] when the second of my size 1 Brittany double pointed needles broke!  They're not exactly cheap and using 3 needles to finish the sock is feeling pretty awkward and I know that's not how you're supposed to do it.

I know there are a lot of expert sock knitters out there so before I spend another $7 on the Brittany's: Are there any double pointed needles that you consider the best?

It's probably my fault for putting the knitting in the bag that I throw around manhattan, but I'd rather blame the needles...
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / designing my own yoked fairisle sweater on: May 17, 2006 03:04:18 PM
Hey! I have graphed out a bunch of little drawings and I'm really itching to try colorwork.  I have Knitting From The Top Down and all the Elizabeth Zimmerman books and the Ann Budd Book of Sweater Patterns...I'm still a little scared to just be blindly designing my own thing.  Do you know of any patterns I could look at?  Any tips?

I looove it. 


Is the bottom seed-stitch?  I think it's some fuzzy-mohairesque blend?

I absolutely love the look of this but I was wondering if anyone had knitted it and if they could tell me anything about the pattern's difficulties or any other pictures? Any additional info would be appreciated. Smiley

This post is all for knitspiration! Because, let's be honest, even I could knit that. Some of the patterns look very simple. Others? Erm.  They're all at least pretty.

27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / first fair isle project? on: February 27, 2006 12:10:20 PM
I'm itching to do an argyle sweater but I want to do something on a smaller scale first.

I once saw a headband on the knitting lj community so a headband or preferably a hat, something along those lines...

Any suggestions?
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / turning the heel on socks [please help] on: February 09, 2006 01:50:43 PM
I accidentally posted this in Completed Projects which makes me feel even stupider. Sorry!

I am making some very basic stockinette stich socks in Koigu KPPM using their fun socks pattern.

I did the heel flap [33 sts]

The Turning the Heel just does not work at all. I've frogged and redone it four times now and I'm really annoyed.

Row 1: K18 sl1 K1psso K1 turn
Row 2: P5, P2tog, P1, turn
Row 3: K6, sl1, ppso, K1 turn
Row 4:

I always have the wrong number of stitches by the time I'm at Row 1 for the third time. I'm so frustrated because I know I am counting correctly.

Any other methods? Or tips? Because I want to finish these socks. I started out with such ambition, lol. I thought I was going to be some sock knitter who only wore handknit socks and my feet are cold! I feel stupid.
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / NY Knitters: Goldman's Is Closing! on: January 31, 2006 09:23:34 PM
Goldman's Yarn Store of Westchester
391 N. Central Ave.
Hartsdale, NY 10530
(914) 761-1222

It's a 70s era yarn shop as you can tell by their orange/brown decor and bubble lamps. I love Mrs. Goldman even though she can't knit. It's like the end of an era.

Anyway, everything is now 10% off. More is being marked down next week. They're closing in 2 months and I only expect the prices to go further and further down.

There are lots of 80s era pattern books to flip through for amusement. And old aluminum needles for 50cents a pair. The 10% off yarn is sucky. But I'm sure the prices will get better.
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / heelless bedroom socks? on: January 25, 2006 06:32:05 AM
I saw the idea of these mentioned in either a Barbara Walker or Elizabeth Zimmerman book a while back and while turning the heel on some socks last night, I was overcome with the desire to make some heel-less bedroom socks.

Any patterns or ideas?
