21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: I Knit! The Body Cybernetic.... on: August 18, 2009 08:00:21 AM
This is quite impressive...and yet extremely creepy.   I love it.  It kinda reminds me of Silence of the Lambs and the suit that Buffalo Bill was making in a weird way...

Victory is yours!  Tongue

Aside from the top being a little pointy, I think it's fixable.  If you single crochet in each stitch around for a while, it should pull out straight.  Then you can either do some creative tucking at the top, make it longer so its supposed to be pointy, or put some yarn hair on it. 

I found that the books in those kits were terrible for me when I was learning to knit/crochet. It seems like the diagrams are hard to figure out for the beginner and the language will leave you saying "WTF?"  I know for crocheting, The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller really helped me.  I would recommend it to anyone learning.  For knitting, I actually picked up a book for kids and as silly as it sounds, I learned more from it than the kit book.

26  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tunisian Crochet Color Change on: November 02, 2008 12:08:06 AM
In the last few days I've played around with this a bit.   

I've found that, if you want to carry a color, you can wrap the unused one around the working yarn just once before beginning each stitch.   It could get tangled easily but it works.  You can see it from the back but not on the front.  It's similar to carrying unused yarn up the side of the work when knitting, but it HAS to be done every stitch, otherwise you get a carried loop across the back. 

It worked for me, I don't know if it is right, but it works.

I am having the exact same problem.  The video only shows how to do it every other row and there's another one that shows how to change in the middle of a row but now how to carry.  Everytime I try it shows.  So, I am really confused myself. 

I've looked in every book I have and they all say just carry loosely up the back.  Any help would be much appreciated.   Huh

These are just the best!  I would love to see a pair in black with pink laces.   :-D   I have to email this post, I think I know a few people who might appreciate these.
