2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / amigurumi question on: December 01, 2007 07:23:30 PM
Well, I don't crochet, but I am looking for a pattern for a knitted (or felted) Boston terrier.  We have one and I want to make one for my boyfriend for the holidays.  I am pretty sure that there is no way I can design it myself.  I have scoured google, etsy....  any suggestions or things that others have stumbled upon??  thanks!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / double decreases (in diamond and smocked blankie)...? on: November 06, 2007 04:23:10 PM
I am working on the diamond and smocked cover.  There are a bunch of double decreases instructed as knit 3 tog and purl 3 tog but I am finding them to be a little messy looking.  I was just wondering if more experienced knitters have a better suggestion for these decreases that will look neater?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / noro silk garden on: August 16, 2007 06:16:47 AM
hi - i was wondering if someone who has used silk garden can tell me a little about the feel of the yarn before I buy it.  is it as rough as kureyon?  i want to make a scarf with it, but not if it is too rough to the touch.  and of course, i want to buy it online, to get the best deal....

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / rowan mag #41 on: April 26, 2007 06:18:42 AM
Does anyone out there have the new Rowan magazine?  They do not give yarn requirements on their web page.  I am thinking of making the "Coastal" sweater, and all they say is that it is made from cotton 4-ply... if anyone has the mag, can you tell me how many balls?  Or if anyone has made the sweater, tell me about it...?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / The Walker Treasury Project on: February 05, 2007 05:18:41 PM
I don't think that this has been posted before... I stumbled upon this while wandering the web today and thought that some of you guys might find it cool.  It is a website that is trying to gather pictures of all the patterns from the Barbara Walker series books.  No patterns (because of copyrights) but they are taking pictures of swatches of the patterns in the book to show people.  I thought that it was pretty cool...

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / raglan neck question on: January 29, 2007 08:21:30 PM
I am planning on making a top-down raglan.... what I want to do is put button band on one raglan shoulder seam, if that makes sense at all.  I am just not sure how to go about this.  I would love to have any suggestions.... thanks
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / softening mohair??? on: January 04, 2007 05:08:20 PM
the topic says it all... is there any way to make mohair softer??  I tried eucalan, but that didn't do too much.  Any other suggestions, or is it something I just have to live with?  I have this sweater my grandmother made me a couple years ago that I love, but it is so scratchy.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / need opinion from craftsters... on: October 15, 2006 05:11:30 PM
I am making the Marseilles pullover from interweave summer 06.  Due to all the cables and my insane schedule as a resident, things are moving slower than I planned.  The pattern calls for knitting the cabled pattern for the front and the back of the sweater.  I need an opinion on this: what do you guys think of making the cabled pattern for just the front and then making the back just ribbed (like the sleeves)?

the sweater is pictured here

thanks so much
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / 3 balls of Rowan kidsilk haze... on: August 28, 2006 04:16:06 PM
I have 3 balls of Rowan Kidsilk haze sitting around and have no idea what to do with it.  See, I was planning on knitting Butterfly, but I started it and discovered that it was a little above my level.  So now I have this beautiful yarn and no clue what to do with it.  Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks.
