21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Socks on 2 circs?? on: March 01, 2007 09:43:07 AM
You are asking about two socks at the same time on 2 circs and it looks like the tutorials the other posts are pointing you to are just showing you how to knit a sock on 2 circs.  There is a pattern on Knitty here:


that will show you how to cast on for a pair of top down socks on 2 circular needles.  I tried it for my second pair of socks and got as far as turning the heel.  When it came time to pick up the stitches for the heel gusset I simply could NOT figure it out and ended up ripping them out.  I wasn't able to find a tutorial on how to do that anywhere and didn't have anyone to show me at the time.  But that link above will surely get you started. 

Now I do all my socks toe up on 2 circs, one at a time.  I don't like 2 at a time because my skeins were always getting twisted up but someday I just might give it another go.

Good luck!

They kind of look like twisted stitches to me.  They're used a lot in "Knitting Nature".

I don't like dpns.  I used my Denise set and it was very easy because they're flexible.  Oh I used DPNs for the I-cord.  But otherwise not.

I just finished knitting an entrelac bag in the round.  I used this pattern as a template: http://freefriends.org/~mare/pattern1.html
I made some changes to make it the size I wanted.  It was very easy.  Her directions are very clear.  It's a little time consuming but the finished product (pics on my blog) turned out great.

Look on her website.  I believe she's got a how to on this subject.  If no, you can email her.  She's very quick to respond.

Or you could just eliminate grafting and binding off altogether and do toe up with the Turkish cast on.  No seam and no funky turned toe look.

Mind came apart a couple of times until I realized that I wasn't getting the joins together securely.  Now they never come apart.  As for the squeak.... I think it happened once with one of the smaller sizes but they never make noise now.  I've had them for over a year.  Use them constantly! 
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Will you check my logic? on: December 12, 2006 10:47:57 AM
I am making a TDR (top down raglan) turtleneck with a cable panel down the front.  I'm just winging it, as I usually do.  This is the first time I'm putting cables down the front so I didn't think it through completely.  I have finished the first 11 row repeat of the cable panel and slipped the turtleneck and bit of shoulder over my head to check it out.  The neck is perfect and the cables flow out of the ribbing just as I had envisioned.  BUT ... what I hadn't taken into account is the pull of the cable panel.  I am increasing every other row as I usually do but the back has grown much faster than the front.  Ah hah!  I realize I have to rip it out and readjust the stitches so that the front and back are the same size, although they would have a different number of stitches.  That way I can still keep increasing EOR and it should grown at the same rate.  When I divide up to start the raglan increases I have 64 stitches.  The cable panel is 30, 2 for each shoulder and 30 for the back.  What I think I should do is measure the gauge I'm getting on the back in plain st st and measure how many inches the 30 stitch cable panel is and then spread out the extra stitches so that the 30 stitches in the front will correspond size wise with ... say 25 stitches in the back, put a couple more between the shoulder markers and that way the increases will be even as I go down the sweater.  Make sense or am I missing something cruical?

I made a hat for my friend for ski patrol and did the cross (just like your Red Cross cross) in duplicate stitch after I had finished the hat.  I know you're going to felt your case but you might just consider trying duplicate stitch rather than instarsia.  It just might not distort as much.  Alternatively, you could just knit a square, felt the dickens out of it and then cut out a cross and stitch it on.

Look in the lastest Knit 1 magazine.  It's 3D, and pretty darned accurate.
