1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:HELP! binding off for neck shaping? on: April 01, 2004 06:50:07 AM
I can do that--my only thought is that it might make the neck shaping look funny since the bind off will be a row off compared to the other side.  You obviously know a lot more about this though-- is this what you do and does it affect the shaping of the neck?  Is this normal or have I messed up somehow??  Thanks so much for you help!!!!

Thanks for the help y'all!  Now I have another question--I bound off and totally did one side of the tank (the 2nd one) so now I'm ready to work the other side.  I need to purl back to the beginning but that would leave my knit row starting at the outside (sleeve) edge instead of the inside.  The pattern says to bind off 2 st on the knit rown--how can I bind them off when they are now at the end of the row??  I'm really confused Huh

I'm finally to the point of doing the neck shaping on a sweater but I'm confused about where to attach the 2nd ball of yarn.  I know that once I bind off, I have to work the 2 sides separate from then on. Do it attach it before I start binding off and use it to do the bind off or do I start the 2nd ball when I get back to the other side.  I've tried reading several patterns to hopefully figure it out but it hasn't helped.  I'd really appreciate any ideas!!

I've done half of a blanket so far and plan to do 3 in all in honor of my "children" who came from the shelter.  I'm pretty new to knitting so I'm just doing garter stitch, using Lion brand wool-ease thick and quick.  It's going pretty fast and hopefully the little bit of wool in the yarn will keep some kitty warm!!  Glad y'all are in it too!!

starlings--thank you!!!  That was a huge help--I'll try both of your ideas!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting questions--blocking/arm shaping on: March 11, 2004 06:25:53 AM
Hi--I'm making my first sweater (tank style) & have some questions for all you experienced knitters!!  First, can I block some "shape" into yarn that is 50 cotton/50 acrylic?  It is a little too short and a little too wide--not much but I wondered if I could block some length into it and take out the extra width at the same time.  Any thoughts?

Second--my biggest problem is the arm shaping looks terrible.  The pattern says to bind off stitches on 2 rows then bind off more on the next 2 rows.  I keep getting a gap in between the 2 bind off places (because of knitting to the end of the row, if that make any sense at all!!).  What am I doing wrong??  This yarn is pretty thick and it is leaving a big hole!  Thanks for any help!!!

I love that scarf!!  Where do you get needles that big though?  Are they hard to work with and are they heavy (hurt your hands after a while, etc.)?  I've been wanting a black one out of fun fur!

Very cool!!  I used to teach kindergarten and my kids LOVED that story--I had to read it every day!!  Sure wish I had seen those back then!!

another thing that might work with these ideas is foam board instead of cardboard.  I think that's what its called--its like 2 peices of white poster board with foam stuff in the middle--its used for student projects/displays.  It would be thicker and maybe easier to work with.  Also, it is very light so you could just use those 3M tab things to stick it to the wall.  Just an idea!!

BTW, I totally love your room!!  What did you use for those long "strips" that have photos on them?  I love that idea!

Try rubber cement--its really easy to work with, you can adjust the paper if you don't get it just right the first time and it won't make the paper ripple.  When you first use it, you may be able to see it through the computer paper but it will dry clear.  I love this stuff!  Hope that helps!!
