1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: tychus hat from knitty on: September 24, 2005 07:34:30 PM
 Ohh, I really like yours! I made one too. I used 4 strands of sport weight yarn, it was white, and s2 strands of Red Heart Symphony, which is worsted weight acrylic that looks mohair-ish. My  gauge was WAY off so, I did 3 repeats and it ended up about 24 inches. My hat is also  a lot longer than yours, but I didn't use the reccommened yarn, and I didn't check my gauge, so I think that's why mine is so huge.
 But since I only did 3 repeats, the hat ended up a lot point-ier so I had to sew down the edge funny. I think I might rip mine  out and give it another go because it is really fun to do, and it doesn't take very long at all!

 I am working on my first pair of socks now! I have made Fuzzy Feet from Knitty which was a good place to start because they don't take as long as normal socks would. I am using the LouLou pattern from Knitty's breast cancer awareness issue. It's really fun to work from the toe up. By the way, I really like your socks!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How did YOU learn to knit? on: September 05, 2005 06:39:03 AM
My science teacher said that she learned how to knit at the begining of 7 th grade(2 years ago). So then my mom and I were at a card shop and  there was a sign up for the __ Annual Knit and Crochet Out. It was at the mall and there was a circle of little old ladies that had little balls of yarn and some chopsticks. I learned there and then I realized that BOTH of my grandma's knew how to  knit . I have gotten some good advice from both.

 Normally, ( to me) Magknits patterns are hit-or- miss.  I really like the scarf and the cardigan. My mom likes the wrap/shawl and the Alice sweater.

 About the cardigan, at http://www.theknittinggarden.com/ro-woolcotton.htm they say that the gauge for Wool Cotton is 5.5 - 6 stitches per inch( 22 - 24 stitches for 4 inches) and magnkits says 21 stitches. I don't think ou would have to double it.

 That is so cool! If  I made a sweater, for my grandpa, it wouldn't be pirates. It would be like one of Bill Cosby's awesome sweaters that he wore on the Cosby Show!

 I made one! But I had to change the pattern a little bit, so mine looks more like pie than a cupcake!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: lace leaf pullover - from Loop 'd' Loop - finished with pics on: August 17, 2005 11:53:23 AM
  I really like that. I like how you made it more fitted than in the magazine. I don't like how Interweave Knits doesn't say how the pattern was meant to fit. It just says shown in __" size. But what would really help if we knew what the model's size was, IK.

  You should bind off the first set of stitches at the begining of the row. So you don't have to cut the yarn or anything, you should just knit acros the row like normal. Then at the begining of the next row, bind off the same number of stitches then knit across the stitches in the middle like normal.

 I tried one, but it is a little too small. It still fits but I wouldn't be able to have the ends touch like bugster's does. How long did it take to get the Yesterknits pattern? I emailed them like last week and I still haven't gotten it.

 Yeah, thank to guessica  for the idea and ohmystars for trying it out. I emailed yesterknits to get the pattern and I am going to attempt to make something along the lines of the pattern and the one from Urban Outfitters as soon as I finish the sweater I am working on!
