1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: frog hat and sweater for nephew on: November 21, 2005 06:03:18 AM
patterns for charity section

I made the froggy set and the ducky set.  (though, the little guy can't fit into the ducky hat just yet as I purposely made it larger)

I knit up the frog hat (it also has matching socks that look like webbed feet) when I first found out my sister was expecting.  It's a little too small, I told her possible ways for her to stretch it to fit better.  (he was 8.5 lbs. when born on 13 november)
I also knit up the little raglan sweater (he'll be able to grow into it) out of Reynolds Odyssey and a dark green wool/alpaca blend from the stash.

that's an idea.  it's probably wouldn't be that hard to make a roller pillow.  not that i am ready to get into yardage yet.  but, probably sooner rather than later.
i may have to go hunting for those directions...

Does anyone know if you are able to do yardage with a cushion-style pillow?  Obviously, using a roller type would simplify this immensely.  However, i really can't afford to invest the money in more equipment right now.  I would imagine that you could CAREFULLY move everything up on the pricking, but I am not sure.  Any suggestions?

I just started making bobbin lace as well.  I bought a starter kit from Halcyon Yarns.  They look to be a good source for supplies (I also buy yarn there for many knitting projects).
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: vertical scarf fringe? on: December 09, 2004 11:47:05 AM
I made my bf's mom a vertical stripe with knitted fringe for x-mas.  Each stripe starts as its own entity then joins for the body of the scarf (intarsia color work) and separates into separate little strips for the fringe on the opposite end.  I used a pattern from Interweave Knits (don't remember which issue).  It was rather tedious being fingering weight yarns and on #2 needles... but the finished product was well worth it.

I am following the directions.  Now I am starting to feel silly, but I had got it used.   Basically I am putting every other needle down into "d" position.  (as the directions say) with the "weave" knobs in the "down" (brushes engaged) position.  i haven't had a chance to play with the monster tonight, but as you have a relatively similar machine, i would appreciate any input.
i am truly a novice at using a machine.  if you would prefer to e-mail directly, that can also be arranged.

I honestly have no idea when the machine was last used.  Otherwise, more of a fine gauge, and I am currently using a basic 4-ply (halcyon yarns, 3/2 Pearl Cotton) as recommended in the directions (I compared size with the exaples that they had in the instructions) 

what it looks like is going on (I am at work and trying to remember what was happening as I was using it yesterday) is that the hook levers either aren't closing or opening properly for the stitches to form correctly.  could this be caused by my not being used to the action of the carriage?  I am trying to exhaust all possibilities BEFORE having to buy a new part or get it repaired.

I will try to take a picture when I get home from work and attempt wrestling with the monster again.

I just started using it over the week-end (VERY new acquisition).  I seem to keep dropping stitches after the first 2 rows.  the stitches look like they double up on SOME of the hooks.  Would this mean that the nooks are bent? Or, would it have more to do with tension and not being used to moving the carriage.  I realize this is a lot to ask, but i want to get the basics down before i attach the ribber (i have one as well) and atempt to work with that. 
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Studio 360 knitting machine on: December 06, 2004 12:29:48 PM
I just got a knitting machine.  I have all of the directions and have been struggling to work it.  Is there anyone who either has one, or has used one that can give some pointers?
