1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: New (Free) Mystery Shawl on: April 03, 2007 06:09:04 PM
I'm so excited that people are joining, I can't wait to see how everyone's turns out. I'm knitting the square myself, so I'm really eager to see the triangle versions Smiley

Hey folks,

I thought I'd drop a line here, I'm running a mystery shawl that's also a testknit over at:


The pattern is my own, for either a center-out square (approx 3000 yds) or a top-down triangle shawl (approx 1500 yds). The first clue was posted today, with much more to come in the next few weeks. Anyone who's interested is welcome to join Smiley

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you let a muggle down nicely when they ask you to knit something? on: January 29, 2007 07:39:48 PM
Grar. Random people asking me to knit for them hadn't been much of a problem until this year. Suddenly, I've got people in the bus thinking "Gee, could you make me, RandomStranger, one-a-them shawls like you've been working on for three months, only super huger with all these swanky details and no thought of pay much less materials cost?" is small talk. Them at least I can laugh and ignore, like it's a joke, but now I've got a new co-worker who's only seen me working on my Icarus for two weeks and has already started hinting pretty heavy that she'd like a scarf. Add to the mix that she's my immediate supervisor and has already turned down my offers to teach her (it's too hard, she'd never have the patience) and you have one decidedly awkward work environment.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: what to do with deep yellow mohair? on: January 03, 2007 07:23:45 PM

Is it like a schoolbus yellow? What weight is it? What's the yardage? Chances are, it would make a fabulous shawl. Mohair fluffs nicely, so worked up on (relatively) large needles for it's (usually) thin weight, it looks fabulous as lace. As a shawl, you can wear it over other clothes for extra warmth (in temperature and color, sounds like!) without the scratchiness being a problem. I've been working up an Icarus shawl in a similar color (cadmium from handpaintedyarn.com, I'm really liking their stuff) and it's so cheery. Yellow is my most favoritest color Smiley In all seriousness, if you can't find a thing to do with it and want to sell it, drop me a line?

Does anyone know where to put the hole in the back for the charger? I'm making my little brother one for christmas, and I don't own one myself, so I can't measure it out in person. I'm using a size 7 canvas as well, but with the chart as written I'm getting the right size (so far as I can tell). I'd like to be able to have a charger space, without clueing him in to my gift.

Yup, definitely hairpin lace. Here's a bit on making your own frame:


And using it once you've got it:


And a stole very similar to this scarf!

The knots in the middle of the loops make me think it's not knitting, though I may be able to try and work something out that way. I wonder - could it be hairpin lace? Maybe I could do something with pearl tatting. Hmm. If I figure it out, I'll post how Smiley
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How would I clone this scarf? on: November 28, 2006 05:03:08 AM
A dear friend of mine wants a scarf for christmas, and I came across this one and know she would love it. The problem, of course, is that it's crazy expensive and also no longer available. Does anyone know the stitch pattern for this one?


It looks like a long line of knotted loops that are gathered with crochet into the wavy pattern. I think I can figure out the crochet part, but does anyone have an idea about the knotted loops?
