As soon as I get a photo I will post it.... Ive already started thinking about christmas presents this year and thought that stockings would be a nice gift for family, friends and co-workers. I found a pattern book at my LYS and have recently started knitting away. They are not knitted in the round, strange huna. Anyho, I was wondering what everyone else is working on, or planning to start working on for the holiday season. Please post picts if youve got em!

Also has anyone figured out how to convert the sushi ornaments that were posted last year from crochet to knit?

No, Im still confused. I dont understand where the decrease happens. How do I go from 13 stiches to 5 all of a sudden?
215  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help me figure out this knitting pattern! on: July 04, 2005 01:26:30 PM
I have started early on my xmas presents this year. Right now I am working on a christmas stocking that is knitted flat, not in the round. Im to the part where Im starting on the heel and this is what the pattern says:

Divide for heel: From (RS), Slip first 13 sts onto holder for right half of heel. Slip next 27 sts onto 2nd holder for instep. Slip remaining stiches to free needle for the left half of heel.
Left half of Heel: From WS join  secondary color if desired. Row 1 P, Row 2 Sl 1, k12 Repeat 8 times. Work short rows to turn heel as follows: p2, p2 tog, p1, turn ......theres a little more to the heel pattern from there.

But there are 2 places that I sort of got stuck. The first thing that was weird was that when I was transfering my stiches to the stich holder it told me to do so from the R side (my knit side) so to transfer my stiches to a needle for the left half of the heel the needle was pointing the wrong way. I had to take all those stiches off the needle and put the needle in backwards so Id be ready to purl the next row. I thought that was strange. So I got through rows 1 and 2 and then got stumped at the "work short rows part" My stiches arent decreasing..... and according to the pattern at the end of my 16 rows I should have, what 5 stiches, in order to do the p2, p2T, p1 turn?
I dont get it. Whats going on, and what have I done wrong if anything? If I need to post a pict of my work, or the picture of the stocking from the book let me know. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shocked

218  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Ran out of yarn, need help! on: May 11, 2005 03:16:45 PM
Oh, Im 2 skiens into a beautiful scarf and I ran out of the yarn Im using. I have thought about adding a different color to the ends so that the scarf will be long enough, but I really want just the solid color that I already started using. I was using Sensations brand, Whisper in pink. Apparently Joanns doesnt cary the yarn anymore, and I havent found any on ebay. To make matters worse the scarf is a gift Im knitting for someone who is moving in a month. Does anyone out there have an extra skien? Or heck, even half a skien? I can only hope against all odds. Thanks!
