In the last week or so I've finished two projects from Mason-Dixon Knitting. The baby Kimono for some friends who are expecting and three warshrags for an auction at our family reunion next weekend. I HIGHLY HIGHLY reccomend the book to everyone!

Yah, I've never worked in the round. If I remember correctly, arn't you supposed to knit the knits and purl the purls? Because that's what I've been doing and you can't even tell the difference between the knits and purls! I've been knitting long enough to know the two basic stitches, I'm just stumped as to how to fix this and knitting group is still a week away!!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitty's Thuja on: July 21, 2006 09:38:51 AM
I decided to make my dad a pair of Knitty's Thuja for Christmas. The pattern seemed easy enough, but for some reason, the pattern isn't showing up! It's just a seed stitch rib, but not even my 1x1 rib is showing up. Can anyone help me? There is a picture below of what they look like so far, you can't even tell where I changed from the 1x1 to the seed stitch. This is my first pair of socks, so there is probibly just something I don't understand about sock knitting (they're on double pointed needles, not circs).

See...no ribbing! Ahhh!

Thank you! Thank you! I realized that I was adding an extra stitch in the yo and that's what was causing all of my problems. Once again, the brilliant minds of craftster save me! I'm glad I started these christmas gifts now insted of closer to ....christmas!

I'm attmepting to make the Midwest Moonlight scarf from ScarfStyle. The first row is not working out right. It reads as followes

Co 49 sts. Knit 3 rows. Cont. as foll:

Row1: (RS): *[K2tog, yo] four times, K8; rep from * two more times, end K1

My problem is, the math is not working out. You start with 49 stitches the pattern for row 1 requires 20 sts. per repeat at 3 repeats, making 60 sts. plus one at the end for 61 sts.
The second row adds up to 49 though. Am I missing something? Please help!
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Simple Silver Anniversary Party on: June 27, 2006 06:37:48 PM
My boyfriend's parents are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary in the beginning of September. I told his sister that I would help her plan and exicute the party since her two brothers (my boyfriend included) don't seem to be much help! We were thinking a simple opehouse at their family church with appitizers and a miniture wedding cake (my cousin is a pastery chef!) but I'm looking for other ideas or suggestions on what other people have done.  His parents are very simple people, they live on a HUGE farm in a tiny farming town in Michigan. His dad is a full time farmer (just crops) and his mom is a PT Assistant. I want something simple and classy without being too fussy, because they wouldn't be comfortable with it. It would also be nice if it was fairly low budget, since 2 of the 3 kids are still in college. Thank you for your help!

My dad rides too and my mom bought him one of Harley-Davidson's "Road Tunes" CD's for Christmas. He just bought a new bike with a CD player, but he listens to it almost every day on the way to work and on road trips. It might make his commute a little more fun. You can buy them on Amazon.com or at your local Harley Dealership. Ours is a 2 disc set and it runs about $30 (I think).

I found this a pattern for "My So Called Scarf" (I think it was once a knitalong) and I think that's the pattern I'm going to go with. I'm going to swatch it on some solid color yarn this weekend to see if the pattern shows up as well as with the varigated.
