3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Squeezing in increases on body shaping on: June 03, 2005 05:22:55 PM
I need some help with body shaping on a tank I'm working on.  I've been doing the decreases and I started my increases really late.  I have the full details on my blog.  Can any of you offer some advice? 


4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Check this out.. on: April 22, 2005 09:57:22 PM
This is a really cool idea for a scarf/shawl.  i love how the close up shows how perfect the stitches are (yeah, it's machine, but still)  I think it's a really cool concept. 

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Vegan Sock knitting on: April 16, 2005 01:42:38 PM
Can anyone reccomend some vegan sock yarn that will knit up to a gague of 32 sts and 44 rnds = 4"  on size 2 needles?  I want to make the retro rib socks in the winter '04 Interweave Knits.  I see that Bernat Sock yarn may work, but I'm not crazy about the colors.

Any suggestions?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Water-bottle sling from Knit-wit on: March 17, 2005 06:39:26 PM
 Aside from shortening the strap, I like the way this turned out.  I bring water with me everywhere, so I plan on getting some use out of it.  If it looks a little sloppy, well this is my first time with dpns other than finishing off a hat.  I should have started the ribbing on the body a little sooner, but I wasn't really stopping to measure that often.  Anyhow, here it is.  


Ok, I think it looks a little better IRL.  The photo came out a lil funny.  Smiley
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Purse of Any Kind Swap Gallery!! on: March 07, 2005 07:17:41 PM
We should all be getting our purses in soon and I couldn't wait to start the gallery! 

NVA received the purse that I sent her today! 

She said I should post it, so here it is:

The liner is light blue and has sewing notions all over it.  It also says, "Sewing is our common thread."

I'm so glad you liked it!

**Now that I look at the photo, it seems a little lopsided, but I promise the purse is symmetrical! Smiley
8  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Vogue Winter 04/05 #23 shawl~collared pullover on: February 24, 2005 03:25:44 PM
Here's a link to the issue... http://www.vogueknitting.com/vkm/vkm.html

I am just in love with this sweater!!  I ordred some beautiful yarn from www.theknittinggarden.com in a lovely purple for it.  I'm nearly finished with my hourglass sweater and hope to start this as soon as my yarn arrives.

Is anyone else up for it??  This will only be my 2nd sweater!  The pattern doesn't call for circs, but I would like to convert it to be knit in the round.  Who else wants to join?

You know you want to!!!!  Wink


9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fixing uneven sleeve cuff ribs.. aka Shrug screwups on: February 13, 2005 04:24:32 PM
I made a shrug with 12 rows of ribbing on each end to give them a 'cuff' look.  My tension changed from one end of the shrug to the other.. so, of course, one cuff looks shorter than the other.  I like the cuff that was made from the end that I finished with.  Can I cut the end that I cast on from and unravel the sleeve a bit and redo it?  I can add in more yarn if neccessary (which probably will be).

I really don't want to frog the whole thing.  The mix-matched cuffs will be embarrassing for me.  Please tell me I can unravel from the cast on edge and redo it and bind off.   Huh



10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Suss shrug pattern problem on: February 03, 2005 08:52:37 PM
Hi guys... I'm really frustrated with suss right now.  Here's a link to the shrug I bought the pattern for http://www.sussdesign.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=pattern_96&Category_Code=patterns.

Unless I'm a complete idiot, that's ribbing she has at the end of her sleeves.  The pattern is knit flat and the first thing it says to do is cast on 30 stitches and knit 20 rows in St st.  I need to know how to make this a successful rib cuff.  Do I cast on with the same amount of stitches or do I need to increase/decrease them some to account for the way ribbing pulls in the fabric.  I don't want a big poof after the rib.  Do you think it's k4,p4 or k2, p2? 

I've also heard that the back tends to curl up.  I'm thinking a seed stitch would be really pretty, but does it help flatten out stockinette as well as rib does?  How many stitches deep shoud I make the seed or rib border?  I've been speaking with a really nice person in PMs, but I hate to keep bugging her about this same pattern ~ especially when I haven't even started yet!

I'll likely call them tomorrow, but I wanted to start on this shrug the day it came in.  The pattern screw up has just made me avoid it.  I've only been knitting for a little over a month and I'm just not exciting about having to modify a pattern that I paid to have represent the item in the photo.   I hate that I'm putting it off like this because of the lovely 100% alpaca I got to go with this (in the same color as the model's shrug).

Anyhow, I'll probably just call them tomorrow, but thanks so much for letting me rant!  Angry
