1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pinwheel blanket help on: March 15, 2008 06:38:05 PM
I'm a bit confused...

> Cast on 5 stitches, knit around. Place a marker to mark the beginning of the round.

Next round, make 1 stitch in each stitch (10 stitches).

Round 5: *k1, yo* around to marker. (20 stitches).

...So what is done with the 2, 3, and 4th rounds?

Continue increasing or just knit the rounds.

I feel so lame for not getting the pattern.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Penelope the movie on: February 03, 2008 05:12:12 PM
Is anyone else as excited as I am to see that Penelope the movie is coming to theaters?

I've already ordered my yarn to make her purple and green scarf Smiley  SQUEEEE!!!!!!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Understanding gauge.... on: February 02, 2008 06:03:50 PM
I have this fabulous amount of Malabrigo Merino worsted that I ordered to make my first sweater ever...the Tilted Duster from Interweave Knits.

Now, I've avoided anything that requires having to knit a gauge swatch - shame on me.

The gauge is asking for 17 sts and 21 rows = 4 in St st. If Im going to gauge correctly.I should have about 4.25 stitches per inch going across in my little susan bates gauge knit check metal plate correct? And about 5.25 stitches in a inch for each row, correct?

I was watching thisHow to Gauge on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZR_JyJgoGm4

My 3rd swatch with regular tension using 9's came up 4 stitches per inch horizontally and 5 stitches per inch going vertically. Something tells me Im totally overthinking this.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn for a good cause on: December 15, 2007 08:51:43 PM
This may have been posted again, but for those of you that love alpaca...the pricing seems fairly reasonable....the cause behind even better.


3 skeins for 29.95, I put in my order for purple Smiley
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Meet Kingston the Lion - The cousin of Roxycraft's Winston the Lion on: November 24, 2007 08:08:38 PM
This is Kingston, originally Roxycraft's Winston the Lion...only Joann fabrics didn't have the same type of yarn for his mane and I had to improvise using Lion Brand suede.  The body in all took about a week for me crochet and assemble.  His hair on the other hand is all individual crochet loops and took me about 8 hours in one sitting.  Thank goodness there was a TV marathon going on.

Anyhow, our 5 year old brings him nearly everywhere and holds him dearly.  I was originally going to make his scarf in Rastafarian colors to go along with his name.  Thanks for the pattern, Roxycraft...now our boy has a true handmade keepsake Smiley

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lion Brand Wool-Ease - SALE at JOANN's for 1.99!!! on: September 05, 2007 11:04:58 PM
While I realize that it's not the first choice for many, I came upon their sale tonight...and at 1.99 per worsted skein, I would be crazy not to buy it.

Just wanted to give those who are interested a heads up!  Happy Sale-ing Smiley
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Winston the White Lion - Roxycraft on: September 02, 2007 04:24:54 PM
Has anyone else here made Roxycraft's  - Winston the White Lion?

I'm sorta stuck on the first part of "add 10 rows" after row 8 of the head...do I continue to increase or stay steady at row 8's instructions.  (staying at row 8's instructions so far isn't working) Huh

This is my first crochet project in *gasp* since I was 10.  Any help is warmly welcomed.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Scarf of a Different Stitch... on: January 30, 2007 09:17:35 PM
The name of the stitch is a bit questionable, but I do love how it turns out... Faggot Stitch.  Can someone please tell me if there's an alternative name to this.

I used Caron's simply soft in watermelon pink and a bright green.  It's a late gift for a friend.  I also seamed the ends together to so it's just a circular scarf to toss over your head once or twice.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Clapotis - FIN!!! 100% Bamboo Yarn on: January 07, 2006 08:02:59 AM
I made this using 2 1/2 skeins of the Southwest Trading Company's 100% Bamboo yarn on #6 circular needles.  It felt like I was literally knitting with DMC Floss!!!  It's about 6 feet long, so it drapes nicely as a scarf and wrap.  I doubled the increase portion.

The material is beautiful, wonderfully soft to the touch, and light. 

I'm giving it to my bestfriend for her birthday on Tuesday. I'll post a pic of her wearing it Smiley
