1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Knitty's Askew on: July 05, 2007 07:20:45 AM
Not sure what you meant by the back not seeming to match the front, but I'm going to try to at least semi match up the colors on my back and I'm considering adding the garter stitch ribbing as well; I haven't decided for sure on that yet as I'm just casting on the back today.  Those aren't going to be difficult changes and won't take much more yarn, just a little tweaking and a splice or two.  If you mean using the same bias pattern and handkerchief hem on the back, that would definitely require extra yarn.  Also I'd make the rear bias pieces a bit narrower to allow for the lack of stretching required back there.  Could be interesting!

But it REALLY bugs me that she didn't match her stripes on the front.
The same thing bugged me, but then I saw a completed Askew where the knitter had taken the time to match her stripes and I LOVED it ... and promptly cast on one of my own.  I'm just finishing up the second half of the front now, with matched stripes  Grin and I'm praying it'll fit me and look good because I LOVE it.  Matching the stripes on the front didn't take much effort at all and only one splice.  Now I only need to decide whether I'm going to try to do any kind of even rough matching on the back Wink

You're not the only one who's highly amused by all the plays on words you can do with "rasterbate"!  I do love your rasterbation of this poster though; the whole black-white-red thing looks so awesome.

Cute apron!  and you're right, those would make great Christmas gifts.  Did it take you long to make?

I love your take on Jonathan Fong's corrugated cardboard wall.  You did it slightly differently than he does (you can see his at this link http://www.jonathanfongstyle.com/decor/cardboard_wall.html) and I think I actually like yours, with the twine bordering the squares, even better than the original!

Keep checking your local thrift store.  If it's reasonably convenient, go at least once a week, twice is even better; most thrift stores turn over inventory fairly quickly, so the good stuff doesn't last.  I'm in the process of doing the wall in a stairwell with old family pictures framed in old gilded wood frames, and it's taken me months but I've picked up about 20 of them for as little as $.25 each at the two thrift stores closest to my home.  Polymer clay is another great idea if you're at all creative; you can take even plain or ugly frames and totally transform them with a little clay.

Woot, thanks Weeta!  I have to hit Michael's today anyway so I'll pick up the mats and this is going to be the next project I start -- *snicker* I can't wait.

Way way way too funny -- my boyfriend LOL'd.  Our guildleader (we're geeks, we play World of Warcraft) is always saying Die in a fire! -- if you post the pattern for that one I'll so make it for him for Christmas.

LOVE your kitchen with the kitschy old ads and tins; what a great look.  And the red living room looks fabulous with that bamboo floor, which I really REALLY love.  We've been trying to decide what to use in our family room to replace the current (really hideous and worn) carpet, and after seeing how great your bamboo looks -- let's just say the decision just became much easier.
