1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Fitted Knits--okay to do sleeves on circulars? on: March 06, 2008 10:28:02 AM
And I do both at once.  That way they're PERFECT.  It's like knitting two socks at the same time on two circular needles.  Piece of cake (once I learned how to keep from tangling the two separate skeins).
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Love this sweater but dont know how to make it! on: March 04, 2008 02:56:18 PM
I am making this sweater now.  It's a joy to knit.  VERY easy even, as someone else said, for a beginner's first project.  It's top down construction, no seams and the "tricky" bits are not at all tricky.  Really, scrape together the $5.00 and buy this pattern.  Or there are free top down patterns all over the internet and you can get the idea of the construction of one as you make it.  You can get the cheapest yarn and needles to match the gauge size and just start.  Truly - THE simplest thing to knit on earth.  Or ... go to Knitty.com for a free top-down T-shirt pattern.  Lots of places to stop and the variations are endless.  Guarantee you will be super happy you did.

Thanks .... yes it's the right time frame and I have that issue but it was purple.  I guess I really do need to just sit down with the stacks of magazines and go through page by page.  This time though I'm going to have stickies and mark patterns that I might like to come back to sometime!!

Nope.  It's cables all around.  I guess I'm just going to have to start looking through every magazine I own and hope I didn't give it away.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help needed locating pattern on: January 04, 2008 12:18:46 PM
When I first started knitting about 3 years ago I subscribed to magazines right and left.  Interweave Knits was the first and Vogue Knitting second and a few others in and out of rotation.  I remember seeing a pattern that I just loved but thought it was too complicated for my beginner skills.  Now however I know I could do it but can I find the pattern again??  No I cannot.  So I am asking all the Craftster knitters who read this to cast back in the memories and see if you can remember a purple cabled sweater knit in the round.  I am guessing the pattern is at least 3 but maybe even 4 years old.  I was pretty sure it was in an Interweave Knits magazine but I have either misplaced the issue or I am misremembering.  I have Googled all sorts of ways and haven't come up with anything so if this is ringing any bells, I'd love to hear from you.  Thanks!!!

Looks like entrelac to me.  Small entrelac.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need advice on knitting and felting a guitar strap... on: November 16, 2007 10:29:13 AM
I made one for my ex-boyfriend out of Lamb's Pride bulky.  I thought the one on Knitty was too girlie for him and he agreed.  Plus which, like you, I wanted to felt it rather than line it.  I used like .. size 10 or 10 1/2 needles and I knit a quick swatch and felted it to see what the ratio would be versus how long and wide I wanted it and then I just knit it up ... garter stitches on the side so it wouldn't curl and stockinette for the body.  I made it a few inches shorter than needed so it could stretch and then when it was all felted cut holes for the button on the guitar.  I cut one or two, maybe 3, so he could adjust it.  It lllllloved it!  I would have written down the pattern but it was dead simple.

Is this too obvious?  Why don't you just duplicate stitch again over the white?  I'd give it a try at least.  I mean .... after all that work!!!
