21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Coffee Press Cozy on: November 10, 2007 03:49:30 AM
In keeping with the stereotype that any good knitter will make a useless cozy for just about anything, I give you all the coffee press cozy:

In my defense, there is at least a story behind this - because I've moved to Korea, where the apartments are designed more for airflow than warmth, my apartment tends to get quite cold on Sunday mornings, when I want to take my time drinking my morning coffee. So I wanted something to keep the stuff in the pot warm while I drank out of my little mug. . .and I think it's kind of cute. If that helps. Cheesy

The pattern I used is written up here, for anyone interested.

I'm definitely down for this!

Not so sure if I have the commitment to stick to the themes, as I have a lot of sock patterns queued up that I want to make, but the pair-a-month thing is a really great idea!

Right now I'm about halfway through a pair of the Cable Twist Socks from Hello Yarn, in some Lorna's Laces I got for Christmas - I'd post pics, but my camera's being fixed. Sad

 Still, looking forward to see what everyone else posts!

Okay. I'm not *positive* about this, because I haven't had a chance to chart it out. But it looks like they did the following: (from the feet up)

Row 1 (over 8sts) - c2right, c2left
Row 3 (over 10sts) - k10 (one extra stitch on each side of the cable panel)
Then it looks like you work 3 or four right side rows in the same way as row 3, and on the row for the "head," repeat row 1 with the middle 8 knit stitches.
Row 5 (over 8 sts) - k8
They worked a couple right side rows this way, then
Row 7 (over 8 sts) - c2left, c2right.

Does that make sense?

This may be a bit of a silly question, but have you tried blocking the first sock at all? They might not block a ton, 'cause they're acrylic, but you might be able to stretch out the foot that way a little, if that's your problem.

That's gorgeous! Out of curiosity, how many skeins did it use up? I'm debating making my own out of Silk Garden, someday.
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need help with short row heel... on: October 26, 2006 01:16:57 PM
I don't know how to fix the holes in your finished short-row heel, other than attacking that with a darning needle and hoping for the best, but. For future reference, cosmicpluto has a fantastic tutorial on short row heels here, complete with tons of photos!

Another thing you might want to do would be to look up Sherman Heels, which are the way I turn all the heels on my socks. They're similar to short row heels, but don't use wraps, and I love how easy and intuitive they are to work.

If you scroll down to the end of this post on Yarn Harlot's blog, she gives a great tutorial that can be used to scale up pretty much any hat pattern to adult-sized heads.
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cable Design Question on: June 08, 2006 07:15:02 PM
I'm not sure anybody here will be able to help me with this, but I'm posting in the hopes that I can get a hand figuring this out so that I don't have to spend too much time frogging later on.

So, for the Knitting World Cup, in honor of soccer/football being a fairly British sport, I've decided to design my own knitted v-neck vest, with this six-stranded cable pattern up the centre front. I would then like to, somehow, split this at the v, so that a three-stranded cable/braid continues up each side of the neckline.

Does anybody have any advice, or know of any online resources that would help me figure this out, or at least get me thinking in the right direction?

Those are adorable, especially for a first pair.
