11  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Odessa (Grumperina for MagKnits) KAL on: February 04, 2006 06:55:20 PM
I'm in!  This is my first KAL and I couldn't resist Odessa.  I will be using Debbi Bliss Alpaca Silk DK in white because I went to two yarn stores in Portland, OR and neither had Rowan Cashsoft DK and I wanted to start today. 

I experienced some difficulty stringing the beads, but  once I found the right size needle it was better (not great, but doable).  I am now sitting with a glass of wine and I will be stringing away.

Oh, and because I loved this hat so much, I also got a ball of Rowan Yorkshire Tweed DK in Scarlet.  But one at a time...on to stringing beads.

That's funny because my mom says the same thing about ribbon yarn.  I admit that ribbon yarn is painful to work with,but people love the end product.  I always get frustrated working with it, but when I finally let go and accept the twisting all is well.  Plus, noting shows off dropped stitches like ribbon yarn!

Your shawl is beautiful, and the added charms are perfect!

I clicked on this thinking it would be another cable handbag.  Don't get me wrong I love them.  But I cannot express how surprised I was, this is not just another cable bag, this is THE cabled bag.  I love it!  It's perfect. 
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Disturbing Knit Ads on: January 30, 2006 07:48:02 PM
OK, I have to comment on the Knit Care (by Fairfiled) ads that are in every knit magazine...there is just something not right about them.  See page 31 of the Winter Vogue Knitting to refresh your memory.  There are always three young ladies in knitted bathing suits and although that sounds ok, they always creep me out. And this feeling goes further than disgust at the saggy knit bathing suit crotches, they disturb me. 

Am I alone in this?

I love it!  I need to check out the book now!

Too cheap to purchase Adobe Professional that was mentioned earlier ...

if you are student or faculty there are amazing academic discounts for the adobe professional.

I actually purchased adobe acrobat professional so I could PDF patterns I find online (since they move, disappear, and are taken down and put into magazines - darn crosshatch hat!).  Then I organize them in files on my HD.  I haven't quite figured out the best way to do the magazine thing.  I currently thumb through them periodically but its quite cumbersome.
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: A knitting book you'd recommend on: December 22, 2005 01:11:12 PM
I taught myself with the online tuts, but then our internet went down for a day (so long when knitting can be done!) and bought Knitting for Dummies.  I recommend this book because is shows both English and Continental, shows more than the tips of the needles, and has great illustrations.  I turn to thta all the time when learning something new, or when I can't remember.

Stitch-N-Bitch is great though because the illustrations are memorable, especially which way the stitches set on the needle.

Pretty, I knitted the same using Lion Brand Midnight Mohair, It's very Pretty. 

I admit that seeing yours complete, I wonder if I  knit too small.  I do gauge swatches, but I guess I don't stick to them.

Anyhow, great job!

body parts? whud I miss! LOL

I figured the other knitsters would check that thread out!  It said "fully functional" and I admit that I will check it out from the home computer to see what they meant.
