21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Rowan Neaty Instructions on: August 17, 2007 03:11:43 PM
That seems right to me. I have a few Rowan books, and they seem to word things oddly. I'm making Isla from A Season's Tale, and it has similar instructions. It seems to be going ok for me by doing what you propose to do.
Pretty sweater! What colour/yarn are you using?

Ball winder! Useful AND entertaining.
(Hey, I'm easily entertained.)
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Rowan's Isla. Tell me your tales of teeny gauge. on: August 08, 2007 11:48:26 AM
So, I have ordered the yarn for Isla from Rowan's A Season's Tale.
It's knit in fingering weight at 28 stitches to 4 inches. This is by far the smallest gauge I have ever attempted to knit a whole sweater in. I will probably knit the 38 inch size, so it's going to be a slog.

BUT--I have also never knit a sweater that I love to death, that flatters me, and that I wear all the time. I've achieved 2 out of 3, but never the full hat-trick of knitting joy.

Am I mental?
Please tell me your (hopefully) inspiring tales of small-gauge satisfaction.

BTW--RYC Cashsoft 4 ply is on sale at elann right now... Just sayin'

25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What yarn did you use for Clapotis? on: August 02, 2007 11:10:54 AM
I am an idiot, and used Rowan Summer Tweed. It was a BUGGER to "unzip" the stitched, but the finished product is awesome. Just fyi, the gauge of the Summer Tweed is way, way bigger than the Lorna's Laces recommended, so I skipped a repeat and ended up with a huge Clapotis anyway.

I would absolutely buy a shirt/card/print of this. Post if you produce anything. I absolutely love it!

I am a huge fan of heavy duty velcro. The walls in my office are metal (don't ask--very weird, old building) and it's holding up a pegboard with all my pens, pencils, scissors, mailing supplies, etc.

You could put the pointy side of the velcro on the wall, and the other side on the magazine holder. (Which looks awesome, btw.)

It's some random eyelash yarn held together with Elann's Peruvian highland wool held double.
The pattern uses a bulky weight, so doubled worsted seems to work well.
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / felted furry slippers on: July 29, 2007 02:00:12 PM
Behold, the felted furry footwarmers from SnB Nation. I winged the pattern a bit, because once I'd finished, I found out there were errors. D'oh. Felting is awesome, though--can't see a thing.
