21  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?
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cable-stitch choker w/ flower on: December 11, 2004 01:03:29 PM
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!

23  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
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Urban Outfitter Scarves! on: December 07, 2004 01:34:41 PM
Hey all! I was browsing through <a href="http://www.urbanoutfitters.com">Urbanoutfitters.com</a> for some knitting / crochet ideas... and I came across these which look amazing and pretty easy to replicate... if someone would be oh so awesome and hook me up with some pattern ideas for any one of these I'd be much abliged! (particularily the first and second one from the top)  Kiss

How can you determine whether you're a tight or a loose knitter?
26  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gift ideas for yoga lovers? on: December 05, 2004 05:55:21 PM
My mom is really into yoga. I want to make her something but I'm having trouble coming up with an idea... I'd like to knit her a gift. I know the new Stitch n' Bitch book has a pattern for a yoga mat carrier, but I'd like to be a little more original. (knitting an entire yoga mat is out of the question!  Wink )

Thanx!  Cool
27  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Stitch n' Bitch Nation Belt Cable Stitch on: December 02, 2004 06:21:59 AM
Hey, I just bought "Stitch n' Bitch Nation"... I'm doing cables for the first time, and wanted to try the belt pattern. So I followed everything, but the cable looks nothing like the one in the picture... it comes out as a basic looking cable. Any advice on how I can get it to look like that? Thanx!   Huh
