1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Rowan Neaty Instructions on: August 17, 2007 01:33:14 PM
I think I know what this is saying but i just want to make sure....
instruction (in red is the part i dont get)

K2, M1 (by picking up loop between last and next st and knitting into the back of this loop) K to last 2 sts, M1, K2. [83] sts. This row sets the side incs. Inc 1 st at each end as set in 2 foll 6th rows. [87] sts. Cont straight until back meas [33] cm, ending with RS facing for the next row.

So I'm going to increase one stitch at each end (just like it says to with the m1's set in a couple of stitches) then knit five rows (in stockinette) then do another row where I increase at each end....right? 

This pattern in stinking easy and the new cocoon yarn it uses is so dang luxe....I love it. I got a surprise weekend off and a nasty nasty cold. Perfect knitting weekend.

oh and if anyone doesnt know which pattern it is here's a link to chec it out.


the pictures a little dark, even in the book. but i assure you. super cutness.

3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / bamboo kitchenware on: February 06, 2007 08:43:13 PM
About once every month (ok, maybe every 5 months) I go through my kitchen and oil down all of my wood stuff. Cutting boards, spatula handles, knives ect. My question is this: do you guys oil your bamboo equipment too? Nothing i've bought ever said it needed oiling, but at the same time it is wood.....
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / box of r2 rag. what to do what to do. on: February 06, 2007 05:11:28 PM
So today i took home a FREE box of r2 rag in several SEVERAL colors. i easily have fifty balls of the stuff. I dont really like the r2 book so im wondering if anyone has suggestions for hoodie patterns or anything else since i really do have enough for a ranch house. I also got about a dozen balls of "paper". its not my favorite but i may just come of of this with a new "paper boa". i really didnt find much in the blog circuit. maybe because when searching for r2 i come back with every pattern to have a r2 (row 2) in the directions. I'm thinking multi colored hoddie with a white skull on the back. anyway... thanks for any guidence you can give me. silly rowan and their discontinued cool yarn.

*****EDIT EDIT EDIT*****

holy crap...i dont have fifty, i have 121. yup. and there were a few of the books and some patterns at the bottom.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what would you make with 2500 yards of worsted hand dyed? on: December 19, 2006 08:40:26 PM
Yup. I just received approximately 2500 yards of hand dyed wool from one of my favorite people in the world. She hand dyes yarn for the lys i work at and its all freaking gorgeous. This particular color way came about when i fell in love some koigu, but "f" if im gonna actually knit with fingering weight, a few weeks later my lady comes back with this beauty.  Now as cool as the yarn itself is, the super huge ball of yarn is almost just as sweet.

So, what would you knit with it? Im definitly thinking hooded cardigan, bell sleeves, wood buttons.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cashmere Paneled Zigzag Scarf on: December 01, 2006 11:24:33 AM
So, I started tis scarf last night, worked through ugly betty, greys anatomy, and men in trees. Then this morning I woke up and worked through Regis and Kelly, Rachael Ray (i HATE rachael ray, but its what was on, no cable here!) all my children, and right now im into mister rogers. so its just long enough to show off.

so here we are!

right now its 14 inches long, ye ha.

Enjoy! (greaaat christmas gift people!!)

oh, and its artyarns pattern p101 and color cs141 in artyarns cashmere 5
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / artyarns cashmere 5 and neck warmer questions on: October 25, 2006 06:11:40 PM
Anyone who has had the chance to handle some cashmere 5 knows that its like knittable butter. My wonderfull boss ordered me four balls today, so hopefully Ill be getting them within the next two weeks. 2 balls (color cs141) will be made into a christmas scarf for the love of my life...my great-grand-mother. Ive accepted that im going to be doing some lace on the ends of this to add some length. Suggestions?!?!

the other two balls (color140) will be a neck warmer for me. id like to do a cable/rib pattern but i thought id see if anyone knows of a good pattern that i can take a look at to get a feel of how big this thing needs to be. (i want it to go over my head obviously, but i do want it to be snuggish against my neck) (rib...)

I just picked up a third job to help cover the christmas gifts and gas traveling home for thanksgiving and christmas as well as just have a few extra bucks....point being i want this scarf to be awesome, and im drawing a COMEPLETE blank on what i want to do with it. HELP.

So, has anyone else worked with the stuff? Id love to hear what other people have done with it.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / hat size on: September 28, 2006 05:20:51 PM
Im knitting a couple of cabled hats for an aunt to give as gifts to two nieces, ages 6 and 14. the fourteen year old is no problem, but ive never made a kids hat, my question here is how big around (inches) is a six year olds head?

i think im gonna use the basic cable hat from snbn for the  14 year old, in the picture it looks kinda short, has anyone made the hat and thought this? should i add an extra twist of length?

ps i put this here because my real question is the six year old head thing.....
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / yet another anthropologie question on: September 10, 2006 09:16:06 AM

I REALLY want this sweater, not 118 dollors worth though. anyone know a similar pattern. it doesnt look hard, i just dont take chances on sweaters....too much yarn.
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Subing soy for regular milk? on: July 23, 2006 08:07:22 PM
I just made lemon cake pudding from the betty crocker cookbook (my moms old old one, so i dont know if its still in there). Its my favorite desert in the whole big wide world. We didnt have any regular milk so i subbed in soy, and it came out a little watery. Is there a trick here?
