11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What yarn can I Use? on: February 22, 2006 04:55:13 PM
I haven't used it, but I've heard  MIcrospun snags on every little thing---which is why I've stayed away. I'm making branching out in some cotton right now and it's actually working out really well, so maybe it would work for your project. And I think she's right, it prolly doesn't matter what yarn you use. Even Simply Soft in black might work really well. And be cheaper! (one track mind... Smiley )

I haven't tried it, but I hear this is the most awesomest raglan pattern. Even if it's an unpattern Smiley

I'm knitting a sweater in the round and I'm using Stitch N Bitch Nation to talk me through it. I'm basically designing my own sweater to fit my measurements, and while I actually have nothing knit yet, I find it very useful and comforting. There's an entire chapter on sweaters, all the math involved, etc.

I find it sometimes helps to do a row or two of unjoined knitting before joining -- there is a little gap to sew up at the end but it means that you know that it isn't twisted. 

This was my second brilliant idea to fix it. I knit like 4 rows and then carefully laid everything down, smoothed everything out...and screwed it all up. Yep.  I dunno, maybe I didn't have enough chocolate/sugar/coffee today, but in hindsight that's highly doubtful. Maybe it was all the fault of the sugar rush.

"The butts", that's so cool, I'm gonna have that stuck in my head whenever I look at my knitting now Smiley

Thank you for the quick reply! I guess I'll be trying that tomorrow. I'm too pissed at it to do it now Smiley That's a whole day of knitting down the drain Sad

I'm trying to knit my first sweater. It's a top down raglan, really really simple, all stockinette, and every time I join I end up twisting no matter what I do. Does anyone have any tips to avoid this? I've checked around on the internet and it just says "Don't do it." Any help? I really really want this sweater.

She's right you know. I don't use a cable needle, I just use a straight needle and then I can knit the stitches right off of it. But anything will work.
