212  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: seed stitch and stockinette help, *please!* on: December 12, 2004 10:59:33 AM
I get that problem every now and then, too... hmm, the best advice I can give is to make sure all the stitches on your needle are facing the same way, and aren't twisted in a tizzy. Also make sure the yarn from stitch to ball is hanging free and in the same spot.... usually when I get those extra three loops, i go back, straighten my stitch out and adjust my yarn, and re-do the stitch. Seems to do the trick. Hope this helps. :-T

Thanks a bunch! Much obliged for all your advice!  I don't feel so goobish anymore ! Wink
214  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How to hold my needles and yarn... on: December 12, 2004 06:47:13 AM
OK, I have no problem knitting taking the yarn between my forefinger and thumb, But I feel like such a goob not knitting with the yarn correctly stranded between my fingers... It's probably a more efficient way and I could be knitting a lot quicker, right?

I followed the way Debbie suggests in Stitch n' Bitch, and it feels comfortable, but when I go to knit, I don't get how the yarn is supposed to go over the needles in that position...

Any suggestions on how I can get into the habit of knitting this way?

217  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Urban Outfitter Scarves! on: December 11, 2004 01:16:00 PM
I finally finished my urban outfitter's knock off... unfortunately I ran out of pink yarn to crochet all the way around... so I improvised and used green for the other side... I think it looks kind of cool like that though. Anyway, here it is!


Thanks again to everyone who helped me out with the pattern!  Kiss

I used some zara merino wool I had left over from a scarf I finished crocheting to make this:



CO 8
Row 1: K8
Row 2: P8
Row 3: K2, CB4, K2
Row 4: P8

Repeat 1-4 until desired length around neck

Cast Off, (get your crochet hook) sc in next two spaces, c2, sk 1 sp, sc in next two spaces, and tie off.
Sew a button on opposite end ( I used a small pearl button)... and voila!

Find any flower to crochet and sew on so that when you put on the choker, it'll be to the side. I got snazzy and tacked on a star stud. Enjoy!

 Kiss
219  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / CHANEL does the crochet thing too! on: December 10, 2004 06:29:05 AM
I found this Chanel bag in Elle magazine and thought it would be something really great to try and replicate. It looks tough but if anyone's interested in saving a couple grand and helping to come up with a pattern for this gorgeous little thing...  Wink

i remember doing something in 6 grade with cardboard looms...hmmm...im sure its possible...might be interesting to make it long enough though...http://www.allfiberarts.com/library/aa01/aa040201.htm has intrustions for a cardboard loom but you could probably use a wall...hmm..ok i got it

Hah, when you said Loom, I jsut had a flashback to kindergarten for some reason! Thanks for all the amazing advice guys, I started working on the diamond stitch scarf and it's coming out pretty well... the sides are looking a bit muggly (<--- yay new word invention!) but i'm sure it'll clean up once i finish and crochet the edges. I'm assuming it's normal for there to be small slits when rows of the same color are crochet together form the star.  I'll post it when I'm done.  Wink
