1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Left Handed Knitting on: January 09, 2006 04:05:36 PM
Y'all, I need help.

I am a left-handed English throw knitter.  Meaning I hold my working needle in my left hand.  New stitches are worked from the right needle to the left needle.

I have two questions:

1) Should I use k2tog in place of a ssk and vice versa (right vs. left slanting)?

2) Should I follow a chart from left to right instead of right to left (line 1 read from left to right)?

Thanks all!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Messed up Clappy? on: December 22, 2005 05:28:15 PM
Hi all you Crafty Smarties out there!

I have a dilemma.  While working a Clapotee, I got all the way to the end (just about to bind off) before I realized that I overlooked the part where I am supposed to drop stitches at both ends.  So, consequently, I have half a Clappy w/o dropped stitches.  I ripped back to where I should have started dropping stitches on both ends.  But now what?  One side has stitches already dropped when they shouldn't have been just yet.  What should I do?

Please help.  I am desperate... Huh Cry
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Newbie Wannabe Sewing Queen... on: October 18, 2005 11:30:39 AM
Hey all,

I am an intermediate knitter looking to venture into sewing.  I have an older machine, which I can learn to use from my mom.  But what I am wondering is if you recommend any books and/or beginning patterns for me to start with.  I am dying to get started but feel completely overwhelmed right now.  Help me!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / 1200 Yards and nothing to knit...Help! on: October 11, 2005 02:22:44 PM
Hey all,

You guys are so great w/ suggestions and all and I am hoping you can help me out...

I just bought the most beautious cotton yarn from Knit Pixie.
I bought 1200 (roughly) yards of this gorgeous worsted weight Blue Sky Organic Cotton yarn in Tomato, but I don't know what to make with it.  I'd love to make some sort of a sweater/cardi.

I was thinking of the Cutaway Cardi from Bonne Marie at Chic Knits, but that pattern requires worsted weight yarn and I am no good w/ conversion.  I suppose no time is better than the present though.  If I was going to convert the pattern to worsted weight yarn, would I need more or less yarn than called for, or would it not matter?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What to do w/ Rowan 4 Ply Cotton?? on: August 06, 2005 07:38:47 PM
Hey all,

A gal from my SnB generously gave me some leftover Rowan 4 ply Cotton (6 balls, to be exact).  I think I have almost 600 yards.

Any suggestions of what I could make w/ it?  It's a gorgeous blue color...

Thank you!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Strawberry Shortcake Socks on: July 18, 2005 09:16:33 PM
Hi all,

Finished up my first pair of socks!  Love them!

I made them using 1 hank of Knitterly Things Vesper Sock Yarn in Aqua Melon 3.  It's 100% merino, hand dyed to perfection and a dream to work with!  Her yarns can be found at www.knitpixie.com.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sock Knitting Pattern Book? on: June 17, 2005 08:04:04 AM
Hey all,

Can you recommend a great book with sock patterns in it?  I've heard that the Socks Soar on Circular Needles book is pretty cool, but I haven't ventured into that just yet.  I am finishing my first sock (not first pair, first sock) and I am completely enamored.  I have a couple of patterns from Interweave Knits as well, but I'm looking for a great book.

Thank you,

8  KNITTING / Knitalongs / One Skein Wonder KAL Anyone? on: May 29, 2005 08:01:54 PM
I am loving this One Skein Wonder.  It looks like a quick knit and good for some STASHBUSTING!  I have some yellow Woolease I am thinking of using and it will be perfect for this.

What do you think?

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cable 8 from Interweave Knits on: April 25, 2005 07:14:02 PM
Hi all,

I finished this last night (after rushing to my LYS to figure out how to single crochet)!  Whatcha think???

This is like my FIRST finished garment (besides a wretched poncho I am thinking of frogging)!  If you are interested in the pattern, it's in the Interweave Knits mag for Spring 2005.  I used Rowan All Seasons Cotton, two strands held together.  The color is Jaunty! 

10  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Cable Eight Along from Interweave Knits Spring 2005...whose along? on: March 30, 2005 08:51:04 AM
My mom convinced me to try this pattern out.  It looks easy enough.  It's basically two rectanges sewn together w/ a cable pattern that looks like the number 8!  Very cute and great for summer, since it's sleevless.  Also looks pretty simple aside from the cables, which i tried on a swatch last night. 

Anyone else interested?Huh?  I am going to buy yarn tonight! Grin
