1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Socks!? on: May 06, 2007 12:12:50 PM
IF you get a chance, there's a great book called the Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns that has calculations for generic patters in different sizes and gauges.  It may be a little too late for that now, but I love having it around-- it's great for hats, sweaters, mittens, gloves, socks, vests.

Ah, thanks for the advice.  I was thinking of doing very little stretching-- aside from making it longer.  But I'm not sure how I can avoid it growing too much in the arms.  I bound off at the neck to prevent that from getting too big.

I hope I'm interpreting your question properly. 

When you knit back and forth flat you get garter stitch (wavies).  When you knit every row in the round you get stockinette (triangles).
When you knit RS and purl WS flat you get stockinette (triangles). 
When you purl in the round you get garter stitch (wavies). 

As far as I can tell, your knitting/purling looks fine in your socks.  There are places where your knit stitches aren't exactly even, but that happens to everyone.

Aw!  Everyone's been so kind-- thank you so much!  I'm dying to wear it-- but it's more than 70 degrees here and so I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to wear it until winter!

I know this isn't really an original-- but at LAST I've finished my Hourglass Sweater!  I started this about a year ago and then set it aside when I got to the sleeves.  Then, last month, I decided to frog, refresh and re-knit!  I took a break around the end of the month and then started knitting furiously in the last week and a half to get it all done-- just in time to put it away for summer!  Ha! 

The yarn is knitpicks.com Andean Silk in Sangria-- I used about 7 skeins total.  I'm so excited that my first sweater fits and is wearable!  It's not perfect-- my increases are still messy sometimes and I think I should have made the body a little longer-- (it may get longer once I've blocked it) but it's awesome!

For more details about my experiences with this sweater, you can read about it <a http:"http://tinyurl.com/ywjcvd">

I've never seen a crocheted top I actually liked... until now!  That's gorgeous!
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: The Crafty Wedding Craftalong! on: March 12, 2007 11:13:13 PM
I agree that it totally depends on your circumstances Smiley  I just wanted you to know what you could be getting into if you didn't know already! 

Again, technically, ettiquette says you shouldn't put your registry information in your invitation.  Period.  That includes registry cards that you slip into your invitation-- the stores don't give those to you because they're helping YOU out, they give them to you because they're directing people to buy something from their stores.  We chose not to put our registry information in our invites because I had LOTS of family on my invite list who would have been offended and because I think the rules are there for a reason.  Instead, we included our wedding website on the invite where there was a TON of wedding info (directions, hotels, places to eat, etc.) and included a link to our registries there. 

And Emily Post would be okay with registry info on a bridal shower-- someone else is throwing you the party-- you are not asking for gifts yourself.  That's the "technical" difference.

The fraying looks like feathery angel wings Smiley  You may want to sew down the edge of the frays once to keep them from fraying into nothing.  Super cute top.
