1461  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: nintendo character motifs? on: January 13, 2009 09:37:46 AM
Hey car_rides! This site might help: http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/ You can upload any picture and just click on one of the two knitting options (portrait or landscape) as well as what size and it will generate a graph for you with the colors and pattern from the picture! What is great about this, is it graphs it using an appropriate size for knitting so you should be able to follow the chart without being distorted. Good luck with your Nintendo-knitting!
1462  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Generations Purse pattern questions on: January 13, 2009 09:33:00 AM
Hi fellow knitters and Craftsters! I have a few questions about the Generations Purse pattern from Knitpicks. Link here: http://www.knitpicks.com/Generations+Purse_PD50553220.html where you can download the pdf for free. This will be my first lace project as well as first pattern following the chart (very excited about this!)

I want to be able to knit this in the round so since there is no seaming does that mean I would get rid of the first column on the left in the chart because it is a selvage stitch? I also want to have the lace both in the front and in the back (instead of a st st back): would I knit round 1 and then go back to the beginning of round 1 and repeat (and then move on to round 2)?

Thanks for your help, I want to keep my tinking and frogging to a minimum if I can help it!  Grin
1463  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Pattern help. Thigh high socks. on: December 30, 2008 09:09:13 AM
I started a pair of these and had the same problem!! What I did is use the Backwards Loop cast-on (http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/cast-on). So when you go down the row with your purls, purl until you can't purl anymore and then use this cast on method to add the appropriate stitches. Then once you get knitting again your tights will look like they have a bite taken out of them (a shape that looks like this "<" I believe it is for the heel slit.

As for the other question, if you want to work it backwards, I don't see why you couldn't. I wouldn't be confident enough to do it myself, but I'm sure other people who have made these might have done that Smiley
1464  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Baby socks with grown up sock yarn... on: December 29, 2008 10:00:46 AM
Hi Amy! I thought I would add my two cents in...I think what I would do is find a froofy baby booties pattern that you can use for measurements, number of stitches, etc and then use a regular adult sized pattern with the numbers from the baby. I've never converted something like that myself, but I think that's what I would do. Also I would make the socks machine washable (if possible)...I suggest this because I have a 1-year old nephew and his mom won't let any clothing touch his skin unless it's been washed..that and babies are always spitting up on things Wink Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

1467  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: a nintendo/video game swap! on: December 26, 2008 06:43:31 AM
Thank you, Michowl!  Grin

I'm excited about this swap (if and when it happens) as it might "force" me to try out different crafts, either that or work on my duplicate stitching  Wink

1469  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Sailor moon swap?? on: December 23, 2008 09:05:18 AM
I could possibly be persuaded to join this swap myself...it would be my first swap too! I was so obsessed (and I really mean obsessed, I'm sure most of you can relate) with Sailor Moon from like middle school through most of undergrad. In fact, I recently re-read all my volumes of Sailormoon manga! XD

I had a friend back when I was a freshmen in high school who drew me a picture (with colored pencils) of all the soldiers (minus Saturn). She used an official picture for reference, but the one she drew me was enormous in comparison. It is framed and hanging in the hallway of my house to this day! :-D

Love this! Ok, but I'm partial to anything Zelda-related, really :-D I think that is a great 1st chart/1st intarsia! Keep up the great work and the Zelda knitting! :-D
