1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Bust shaping OR short row in the round on: September 25, 2006 12:24:25 PM
Ok, I've Googled and looked everywhere...maybe I just don't understand, but I'm finally waving the white flag and asking for help from you talented gals! (are you buttered up yet?).  So, here it is; I am working on the Leaf Tee and I'm now about 3 1/4 inches past the armhole. From what I've been reading it's a good place to start some bust shaping. I was thinking short rows, but for some reason I can't wrap my brain around short rows  in the round for a top down raglan. Can it be done and how? Websites I can look at? What other methods can I use for bust shaping besides short rows? I just need to make room for the girls (I'm a DD). HELP! Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Mother's Day 2006 KAL on: April 07, 2006 01:07:30 PM
So, Mother's Day is rapidly approaching and I decided that I would like to try and knit my mom something. Of course, I am really bad with deadlines (I never did start my Knitting Olympics project!) so who knows when she will actually get it, but dammit, I'm going to try. I started another Clapotis, frogged it, and decided to do this one: http://www.candis.co.uk/mediastore/FILES/100646.pdf

But that may change! I did cast on last night and after much confusion about yarn forwards, frogged and cast on again. I'm using some HPY.com yarn, double stranded, that I bought from someone destashing last year; it's pretty, with red & orange & brown. My mom's colors. So  I think I have it figured out now.  Someone please KAL with me! I am sure I'm not the only one making something for mom's day (for any mom, not just your own!)! 

Mother's Day is 5-14 this year BTW  Grin
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for easy beanie pattern on: December 12, 2005 11:56:37 PM
Ok guys....I'm thinking of making my husband a beanie of some sort to keep his head & ears warm. He has an ear infection and goes to work at 5 am down at the port so it's always cold & damp. But I don't know how to use DPN's and don't fancy learning right now, just need something quick & easy.  Something with seaming would be fine. I have the yarn in mind for it - I have one skein of Cascade 220; hope that would be enough. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Smiley
