31  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Give me ideas for this cashmere on: September 21, 2007 05:40:51 AM
Well, my standard answer when someone posts a question like this, especially when it pertains to cashmere, and even more so at this quantity is that you are more than welcome to give it to me.

I stand by that answer.

But if you don't like that answer, look for a pretty cardigan pattern?

To make a non-tensioned lazy kate you could probably wrap the yarn around toilet paper tubes, stick pencils (chopsticks, whatever) thru the tubes and secure the whole she-bang in a shoebox.  All a lazy kate is really is something to keep the single secure and free moving while plying.  Tensioning helps, maybe you could tie a shoelace loosely around the tp tubes, but its not necessary.

Well, they make lazy kates for spindles, but it really just sounds to me like you need practice.  The tension for the singles you are plying is controlled with your hand, not what the yarn is coming from.  So you're not doing anything wrong necessarily, its just a new technique for you.  Just keep trying.

Oh, and have fun with it!

Wow.  Thats going to be a nifty story for the grandkids.  Congratulations.  I'm glad you are both doing well.  Now I can't wait to get the pattern and try it for my friends kids!

Call me crazy, I like to kitchener stitch.  But I hate that last stitch, its a beeyotch to make it go flat.  I'm kind of the same way with mattress stitch, but in reverse.  I like to do mattress stitch, but I hate that first stitch, it gives me the willies.

I guess I'm a finisher....
36  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: looking for a pattern....maybe you have one......?? on: September 04, 2007 08:32:28 PM
Well...theres the one in Loop-d-loop (Teva Durham), or you could google Tivoli or Picovoli...
37  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is the point of slipping stitches??? on: September 03, 2007 05:02:39 PM
You can skip the slipping, but it will make for a messier edge to seam up later.  Sometimes the slipped edge won't look so neat until its been fiddled with a bit, or blocked.

I highlight the pattern as it is on the page and print selected.

Its one of hers, its mentioned many times on her website, not only during its creation, but also more recently discussing the fact that she's writing up the pattern.  But she is pregnant and has also changed jobs, so I'd expect it to be a while.  Its a beautiful sweater.

I'd be a tester.  Happily.
