1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Rogue? on: March 11, 2004 09:54:08 PM
Has anyone knit Rogue yet from The Girl from Auntie? I want to, but heavy wool is not my friend. I heard that it was twisted or something, making it even thicker. Would something like Cotton Fleece work, where it's mostly cotton? Would the blocking be ok?
2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Go with everything cardigan on: February 17, 2004 10:13:13 PM
Anyone made this? I'm 7/8 done, and I'll post a pic (of it at least) here later, hopefully. Knits very well and reasonably quickly.

I knit it in Baabaajoe's Woolpak in Aubergine, with trim in blue/teal mohair something...
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / binding off on: February 07, 2004 08:09:13 PM
Alright, So I'd consider myself a high-intermediate-advanced knitter.

When I actually knit, I have a really good tension, not too tight, not too loose. But I cast on really tightly. So I use both needles. Problem solved.

When it says, "Bind off loosely", what on earth does that mean, and how do I achieve such a trick?
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / hopechest embroidery on: September 02, 2003 11:20:40 AM
So, hope chests are antiquated and anti-feminist. Yes. Anyways, I thought that since I'm starting college this year, I should start stocking up on some homewares while I still have a tiny, tiny semi-disposable income and before I sell my soul to the government to repay my loans.

What I'm planning on doing, besides doing a quilt, which is no sweat, I'd like to hand-embroider some sets of sheets.

Does anyone know if I need to do anything special? Like use a backing or something? Or can I just go nuts?
