1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: WEBS tent sale? on: May 21, 2005 02:06:47 PM
I got out of there only spending $50.  Of course my limit was $50 so I was pretty pleased.  I was looking at the Dive in that color! 

I ended up with a bag (10 sk) of Filatura Di Crosa 501 (100% superwash Merino) in a brown/tan variegated color for $25 and a bag (10 sk) of Bergere Irland (80% wool, 13% acrylic & 7% viscose) in a natural color with brown spots.

I felt so inadequate -- there with my 2 bags of yarn thinking WOW!  I'm spending the big bucks and then noticing the woman in front of me had, literally, a shopping cart over flowing with yarn!

I'm definitely going to be saving up for next year's sale.

Oh that looks interesting, Andrea.  I'll have to see what we have going on that weekend.  Thanks for the heads up.

OH man!  I didn't need to know about this I just started knitting a couple months ago so I've never been to the sale.  But it's less than 20 miles from me.  I *will* be checking it out.

I frogged mine -- took longer to do that than to knit it because the ribbon got all twisty.  I'm really not sure if I'll try it again or not.

I have the Boye set (Needlemaster) and I like it a lot.  I like that it has size 2, 3 & 4 needles -- the Denise set doesn't.  I don't have any problems assembling the needles.  They have never come apart on me.  There is a little tool you're supposed to use (comes with the set) to tighten up the connections.  I don't tend to use that, but that's the only reason I can guess some folks have issues with it coming apart.

I'll have to put in on a dress form tomorrow and see where everything falls.  I actually think I've got the straps above the fullest part of my chest (and I use the term "fullest" loosely  *laughing hysterically*  Well endowed I'm not.  Heck, I'm almost NOT endowed at all.  heheheh)

Thanks for your response.  I know what to start looking at now.

I totally tried on the 7 or so inches I had done in a panic last night, and it looks ok. Hopefuly I can make the straps short enough... my shoulders are weird. School has totally been impeding my knitting, but it is going to rain this weekend, so that may be the opportunity I need!

You mention the strap length.  Really my big problem with this is that the back scrunches up between the straps.  My straps are pretty short.  I'm brand spanking new at this stuff, do y'all think if I try to make the straps longer, will that do anything to help stop the scrunching?

I just finished mine today.  It's the cutest -- from the front.  But mine is too large and the back bows out.  I *will* make it again with the extra small which was my first thought, but I did measurements because I wanted to make sure it fit, *laugh* so I went with the small.

On the upside, I'm a slow knitter and I only started this on Friday evening and I finished it up today.  So it won't take too long to redo.

I'm getting frustrated!  One, I lose track of where I am in the K1, P1 (which is not a difficult pattern, I know). 

One thing I did was say outloud Purl Knit Purl Knit as I did the stitches until I was able to recognize them with the ribbon.  And when I stop for anything -- even just to go get a drink -- I ALWAYS stop after doing a purl stitch.  That way, when I pick it up again I know without having to really worry about it, that my first stitch when I pick it up again will be a knit stitch.
