11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / hemp-blend yarns -- anyone use them yet? on: April 15, 2006 01:18:29 AM
i found some hemp yarns at http://www.hemptraders.com/
has anyone used hemp/cotton or hemp/wool blend yarns before?
if so, what was your experience like while knitting, finished product, etc?

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Is Red Heart Shetland Chunky itchy? on: March 29, 2006 01:04:49 PM
Has anyone used Red Heart Shetland Chunky? I've never seen this yarn in person, and was wondering how itchy it is when knit up... I was thinking of using it for a sweater.

Please let me know... thank you Smiley

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / sock yarn stripey hat! on: November 23, 2005 06:31:55 PM
i wanted to see the effects of knit picks' sock landscape, so i made a hat for my bf. here it is (big on me of course)... striped in a swirly kind of way, and started getting a bit irregular up top with the decreases, but you can't really see it  Grin

btw, can a person block something so that the laddering effect that is caused by using dpns goes away?

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / clapotis to shrug then back again? on: June 08, 2005 12:50:16 AM
anyone have thoughts about turning the clapotis shawl into a shrug... and if so, how hard would it be to unseam it so that it goes back to being a shawl? i'm using a thin (lace/fingering weight) merino wool yarn, so i'm concerned that unseaming it would be somewhat difficult.

help please!  Grin
17  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / joss stone's poncho - any ideas? on: April 26, 2005 12:14:11 AM
i'm a knitter, so i'm kind of at a loss when it comes to this... but can you guys offer up any ideas on how to duplicate the huge mesh effect in the poncho seen in joss stone's video for "right to be wrong"? linkie to video:

i'd post a screenshot of it, but i'd probably be violating some copyright and ownership rules ...  Sad

help please, i'd love to make this as a gift for my little sister.

18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / possible pattern suggestions for a cap-sleeved shrug? on: March 29, 2005 05:35:52 PM
i really like the shrug that i've seen this season at the gap -- minus the sequins. any suggestions on how to go about plotting this out? obviously done in stockinette rather than whatever stitch they have going on there.


it looks like it can be done in three pieces... back and 2 front panels... but being that i've never designed something on my own before, this poses a bit of a challenge. help please!   Smiley
