1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitty's Bell Curve yarn sub on: January 24, 2008 01:07:42 PM
So I just saw that Knitty's winter surprises were up, and I love Bell Curve: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTbellcurve.html

BUT the yarn they used is ridiculously expensive! So does anyone have a good replacement idea for Artfibers Zoe? It should be something with some stretch but that can hold its shape.

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Styrofoam ball help needed on: June 08, 2006 07:53:10 AM
So I have a few of those styrofoam balls used in floral decorations and other miscellaneous crafts, and I am going to use them to make something for part of my robot research project. Problem is, I can't stop them from shedding everywhere. Does anyone know how to keep all those little styrofoam pieces from breaking off everywhere? Some kind of sealant perhaps? Any help would be greatly appreciated Smiley

5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Turning Chain question on: April 08, 2006 10:05:14 PM
Sorry for being an idiot, but I'm trying to learn to crochet and it seems I'm to think to be taught even by the great Debbie Stoller.

What I'm confused on is the part in the book on page 32 where Debbie describes the Turning Chain. What exactly am I supposed to do to make the 1 stich high turning stitch for single crochet? And then how exactly do I turn it to keep going? I just did what seemed to work but I think it looks kind of funny. Is there a website with crocheting videos like knittinghelp? Thanks guys.

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Knitted Gift for my boy cousin (boys are so difficult sometimes!) on: February 07, 2006 02:26:36 PM
Hey all!

I wanted to join the xmas 06 knit a long but I first need some knitted gift ideas! Specifically, I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out a cool knitted gift for my little cousin. He is an 18 year old college freshman and I would say he is pretty mainstream and macho. He plays soccer a lot, is an engineering major but doesn't really study a lot so I wouldn't say he is nerdy. He gave me a really cool present last xmas while all I did was sign the family card for his so I need to pay him back. All I can think of right now is a scarf. Any other suggestions? Thanks  Smiley
8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Rasta-ish Headline News and a question on: February 04, 2006 03:21:50 PM
I finished my headlines news cap yesterday. I am so happy with it, it was my first time doing cables, second time making a hat (the first was an easy lionbrand pattern and it came out kind of bad), and I think this is the coolest thing I've ever knit. Most stuff I knit its like oh cool you made that huh but my one friend actually thought I bought this! Yay! Ok sorry for the bragging I'm just super hyped. Here are pics:

I did the modifications to make it more rasta, adding an extra pannel and not using plastic mesh. Sorry for the dark and fuzzy pics.

I also have a question: I have a small ball of left over yarn, (see pics below) and am wondering what kind of matching accessory to make? Any ideas?

9  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Headline News Cable Question on: January 02, 2006 04:36:16 PM
Sorry if this has already been posted I looked through the posts on this hat and couldn't find it.

When making cables, I know you put the required number of stitches on a cable needle and knit some other stitches and then knit those. I'm just not sure when you knit the ones on the cable needle.

In the case of the newsboy cables it says:
*p2, k9, p2, c6b; rep from * to end

What I'm doing is p2, k9, p2, put 6 stitches on the cable needle, p2, knit the stitches that were on the cable needle, k9, etc.

Is this right??

Thanks for the help!
10  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / stitch n bitch journal?? on: June 05, 2005 10:11:51 PM
I am a beginning knitter, (I've made 2 scarves and a boobholder so far), and I was wondering whether the Stitch n Bitch Journal was worth buying. Do all you advanced knitters use journals? Would it be useful for me even though I'm not very advanced?

Thanks for your help!
