1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Trellis Knitalong, anyone? on: May 27, 2005 07:23:36 AM
I am waiting for my yarn to arrive, and I'm getting ready to start Trellis from Knitty.  Anyone want to join me?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a baby cardigan pattern on: May 10, 2005 12:31:56 PM
Here's what I'd like to make for my son for the spring/summer -- he is almost 7 months old now, and I want to make him a textured cardigan or jacket, like with seed stitch, twisted stitches or cables, something with an interesting texture.  I have a bunch of Knitpicks Shine in Cream, so I would like to make him a cardigan that shows off texture stitches.  Does anyone have any pattern suggestions?  I liked the Diamond Seed Jacket from Interweave Knits, but that yarn is too fine -- I need something in sport weight (6 sts/inch).  Thanks!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Baby hat yarn recommendations? on: March 25, 2005 07:11:50 AM
I am making a fair isle baby hat -- I made the first version out of Tahki Cotton Classic and my chart is too tall, so I need to use a finer gauge yarn (My original was about 5 sts/inch with the Tahki).  Does anyone have recommendations for a yarn that is:

1. Washer-friendly
2. (Mostly) natural fibers
3. Comes in pastels
4. Appropriate for an April baby (not too much wool)
5. Knits up at 6 or more sts/inch

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with two-handed fair isle technique! on: March 23, 2005 12:23:18 PM
Hello!  I am making a little baby hat with a fair isle pattern in the round.  It's made with Takhi Cotton Classic and I'm using a two-handed fair isle technique for weaving the non-working color.  The problem I am having is that I get little vertical "blips" of the non-working color showing through to the right side.  I can mostly make them go away by wiggling on the strands in the back, but am I doing something weird with crossing the yarn that is causing this?  I think it is happening more when I am weaving in non-working color from my right hand than from my left.  Or is this just a property of the non-stretchy, non-full cotton yarn (as opposed to wool)?
