1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Magic Loop Patterns to DPN Conversion? on: September 24, 2007 08:57:57 AM
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.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Darryl's Doubleknit Scarf on: January 19, 2007 10:15:46 PM
I made this scarf for my friend Darryl. He bought the yarn and just asked me make him a scarf, without nay real description of what he wanted. I have been working on a doubleknit star scarf for myself, so I decided to make him a double knit scarf. I made plain stripes for most the scarf. Each stripe is yellow on one side, and blue on the other. Since these are also our university's colors, I also put the acronym on the end. I am really happy with how it turned out.

Hopefully you guys like it too!
3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / My Ultra Femme on: March 09, 2006 05:46:00 PM
I finally finished my Ultra Femme! I had it finished once but it was huge! I frogged down to the first section and went from there in the next size down, and it fit perfectly. The sweater sleeves rolled a little to much for my taste though, so I crocheted a little bit around the edges to keep them flat.

I also decided to wear the bow in the back. I don't have any good cloth ribbon, so please excuse the craft ribbon.

4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Flower Earwarmers on: January 25, 2006 01:12:10 PM
Here is my version of the earwarmer from SnBN. I really love it. I made it since I can't where hats when my hair is in a ponytail, and it is too cold here to not wear a hat! I don't think I am quit done with the decorating yet, but I haven't quite worked out the kinks for the last part.

5  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Yarn subs for Ultra Femme? on: January 21, 2006 05:10:05 PM
I am looking for a substitute for the Rowan All Seasons Cotten in Ultra Femme, as I have a lighter weight cotten I am going to use for the top of the sweater, and Rowan does not have the color to match. Has anyone substituted and had good luck. It would especially helpfull if this was something I could get from a store and not the internet since I need to do a color match before purchasing.

Thanks is advance for your ideas!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Froggy Feet Baby Booties... Now with Hat! on: January 13, 2006 10:09:50 PM
I have been making these for my boyfriend's cousin who recently had a baby. I just finished them tonight. I like them a lot, but I am glad they are done. Turning the heel, and working with such small needles was very difficult for me.

I also should mention that I found the pattern from this website: www.p2designs.com or the link can also be found in the "Manly Baby Boy Patterns" thread in the Knitting Discussions forum.

Hope you guys like them!

and the hat...

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Recycled Plastic Bag Knitted Tote on: January 08, 2006 04:47:09 PM
I saved plastic bags to knit this project. There is a similar one for crochet that can be found here:
But mine is knitted. I used size 17 needles and cast on 65 stitches. When it came to the handles I just made two big button holes. Then I folded up and stitched it up on the side and bottom.

Hope you guys like it!


Tutorial to Cut bags Copied From Kemerald14

First you lay the bag flat on a hard surface. Cut off the bottom (where the "seam" is) and the handles. Then fold it like this:
                      _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
                      _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
                      _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

       the solid lines are where the "seams" are, the dotted lines are where you fold,      and the sides where there is no line is where you cut off the bottom and handles

  Then after you fold it it should look like this:     ______________
next you cut it into strips like this:   
   __l__l__l__l__l__l_ _   when you open them all up they will be in long loops
    (cut on the lines)        hook them all together by overlapping the loops and then
                                    pullng the end of one loop through the other

Make sense? Hope so. I know it sounds really complicated, but I promise it really isn't! Let me know if you don't get it and I'll try to explain better!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Detergent question for Handknits on: September 09, 2005 02:42:03 PM
So, I know that you can buy the expensive detergent to wash hand-knit items from most LYS. But as a cash-strapped college student, I was wondering if there is a soap or detergent that is proper to use on my sweaters etc.., when hand washing them (I know they should be hand-washed, I am just unsure about soap.)

So hopefully this makes sense to someone and people have some ideas for me!

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Purple Hat on: August 30, 2005 10:19:24 AM
Ok, so I know that this is nothing special. But this is one of my first projects without I pattern. I actually did this hat 2 times before, but frogged it because it didn't fit. So this is the final result. I like it a lot. And soon it will have some matching accessories, as I bought the purple yarn (a big skein) for $1 at Jo-Anns. (Gotta love clearance!) I am thinking armwarmers!

10  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / My Alien Scarf on: August 08, 2005 12:43:25 PM
So I made this for my brother for his birthday. He loved it. I had a lot of fun making it, it looks really tough but is not at all, you just need to pay attention to how many more stiches are in your pattern.

Here is the pic:

Now my boyfriend has decided he wants one like but in navy blue/silver and to have police badges as the design. So I will have to work out the logistics of that, and will definitely post pics when that is done.

I also meant to mention that I made this scarf in acrylic, not the recommended wool. I knit mostly for my brothers so everything has to be washable (and cheap!). So for those of you thinking of substituting yarn, regular RED HART acrylic is a good substitute.
