21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: This will unfurl, right!?!?! on: October 01, 2007 05:17:48 PM
Stockinette will furl like that. If the microspun you speak of is acrylic like I think, it won't block out all the way. You can add fringe/pompoms to the end to help at the end. Alternitively, if you can't live with it, I found doing a 1x1 rib gives the allusion of stockinette, while controling the furling.

I just got this book in the mail yesterday!! I can't wait for some birthday money so I can make a knitpicks order and start mine! I love making doll clothes and have a ton leftover yarn and cloth scraps for making them!

If it just one circ, you can just follow the intructions on pretty much the same on DPNs. But the few patterns I want to do are doing two socks at once. So I don't know what to do to do one sock on DPNs, instead.

I tried to search to see if this was addressed already, but if I missed the thread, I apologize.
I have seen lots of great sock patterns lately that I want to make. But they are all two socks at once in Magic Loop. I really don't want to knit Magic Loop. I want to knit them on my DPNs. Does anybody know how to convert Magic Loop Patterns to DPNs? Any help would be appreciated.

Where is everyone getting the lists for their blogs that allow them to do the WIPs with the % finished bars? I am trying to format and get my blog set up, and would really like one.

That is really gorgeous, and such a creative use of cables. I know we arn't supposed to ask for tutorials and such, but if you could at least maybe walk us through how you charted it and if you worked from any picture in particular, that would be awesome.

I don't know what your local craft stores are like, but a LYS is always a good place to start. If you don't have a something local, I really like knitpicks.com for basic plain colors. Other places like are awesome, but they tend to have multi-colored skeins. And since you are knitting for a man, I am assuming you want just a solid color. Knitpicks has a great selection of yarn, just click on the fingering weight section, and then they have quite a few choices of superwash!
Also, if you have a LYS, I often find that they have solid colors in sport weight but not fingering weight, and I tend to get a good guage for socks with that. Also it seems to be cheaper that way then some "traditional" sock yarns.
GOOD LUCK!

Its the Ballband dishcloth pattern. (google it, or its in Mason Dixen Knitting) I knit it until it was the length/width of my swiffer. Then I crocheted the handles, and viola!
