1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Block then weave? Weave then block? on: June 29, 2006 10:30:32 PM
I like to weave, then block.  This is because (depending on the yarn) blocking might cause the ends to fray, making weaving more of a hassle.

Ooh if I ever make one I want to do it in that color, too.  Did you have to modify it?  I think some people have said it doesn't stay up on the shoulders, but yours seems to.

If you make 2 swatches with different size needles and want to end up with your swatches the same final size (length and width identical), the one made with smaller needles would use more yarn.

But if you are not keeping the same width (that is, you are only concerned with making it 4 feet long), then I am not sure.

Anyone, feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

your tubey is gorgeous, and i think i might make one as my first sweater!  i was wondering - do you have a picture of the back?  is there any weirdness at all in the transition from the tube part to the shrug part?  thanks.

Your froggie projects are all very cute!  For the eyes on the hat, did you knit or crochet?  Or wait - are they pompoms?  And did you use felt for the pupils?

I've never done a lining, and I was wondering about these instructions.  It says to knit the lining, and without binding off, to tack each stitch to the inside to the hat with a sharp needle, making sure stithces don't show on right side.  What is tacking?  Sewing with thread?  Can someone show a picture of the finished lining?  Thanks!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: cable cast on on: January 02, 2006 12:13:45 AM
wow i never knew that you have to cast on differently for doing cables. i only know one cast on method and i have used it to cable several times and i have never had a problem... weird

Olivian, it's not a cast on for doing cables.  It's just a name for a particular type of cast on that could be used for anything.  It's my favorite one (not that I know that many) because it is neat and just the right amount of stretchy.

Like Sera, I'm looking for a yarn sub for this hat.  What are you other knitters using?  I think the original yarn looks beautiful and I wish it was available locally, or at least for less money.  Sad

It looks really nice!  But does it itch?
