1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Dumb/easy questions on: February 16, 2011 01:07:00 PM
Just wondering what the difference is between garter & stockinette stitches...can they be used interchangably? Also, what's the difference between knitting and purling? Any help is good, helpful videos are even better  Smiley Thanks!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / wtf garter stitch?! on: April 13, 2010 07:22:23 AM
So I'm trying to knit a scarf for my friend, and the pattern says to use garter stitch. I've never used that method before (I'm used to stockinette) so I youtube'd it, and to me garter stitch just seems the same thing as stockinette....I honestly cannot distinguish the two .....any links or help is appreciated. Smiley

Also, on a side note, I bought some bigger needles, size 15 I think, and they just make MASSIVE gaps in the knitting....are they supposed to do that? The stitching is correct....it just makes a very thin scarf  Undecided
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Fabric Medium? on: March 08, 2010 08:05:28 AM
So I'm hearing that this fabric medium stuff you mix with your paint before you stencil a shirt is supposed to prevent the image from cracking later on....is there a specific brand of medium that works best? I haven't begun looking for any yet but I'd kinda like to know what it is exactly I'm looking for Tongue Also, what is the usual price range/bottle size that it comes in? Any help is welcome Smiley

I also live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, if that makes a difference at all.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Feel the Pain Pattern? on: December 12, 2009 01:04:16 PM
Hi Smiley I'm a beginner, and I'm trying to fork out this intarsia pattern that I found in a knitting book called "Pretty in Punk". My project is an armband and I can't figure it out...

In the pattern I have to do 5 rows of black, and then do 2 rows of white, and then on the third row of white I have to do 5 stitches of red....I can do all that fine, but when I have to do the bar of the cross, the number of red stitches jumps from 5 to 11, and I'm not sure how to make the jump to start the bar...

Sorry if it's hard to understand, but it's kind of difficult to explain...just think  of a cross I think you'll know what I mean Tongue

Any help is appreciated! Thanks! Cheesy
