1  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Pillowcase as cure for crafty-block? on: April 28, 2007 07:07:50 PM
So, I have had a major case of crafty-block.  I don't think I've really done anything since the end of January.  So, we'll see if my crafting tonight means I'm getting motivated again.

Tonight, I got inspired or something and embroidered the border of a pillowcase.

Here's the damage:

2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Finished kittyville! on: October 22, 2006 07:34:58 PM
Yay!  I finished my bright green kittyville hat!

I used Mission Falls 1824 in a bright grassy green (the picture doesn't do justice to the awesomeness of the green.)

It was my first time picking up stitches, despite the fact that I've been knitting for a few years now...

How'd I do?

Yep, I invented a more complicated, messier, and uglier way!  Go me!

I actually prefer the "correct" way, now that I know about it.  And I'm adjusting to the change quite well...

Okay, reading the chart: (first of all, I'm pretty sure the stich n bitch book does a good job explaining reading charts, in general, and I'm just going to explain this one)  I'll use rows in the pattern repeat as examples.  Firstly, read the chart bottom up, and right to left.  Row 17 (RS) says k2, yo, ssk, k3, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k3, k2tog, yo, k2.  Row 18 (WS) says k2, p until last two sts, k2. Row 19 (RS): k2, yo, ssk, k4, yo, [slip 2 sts as if to k2tog, knit 1, pass the 2 slipped sts together over the knit stitch], yo, k4, k2tog, yo, k2. Row 20 (WS): k2, p until 2 sts remain, k2.

I hope that helps you figure out how the chart works...
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anthropologie - Bella Italia on: September 30, 2006 11:20:47 AM
All I can think about when I see that scarf is how much of a pain it would be to cast on that many stitches...I tend to get more than a little antsy at 100...
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: why did you start knitting? on: September 30, 2006 11:18:46 AM
I started knitting to help me in my quest to quit smoking...I had been seing cool books and patterns and I was sitting on my couch watching a movie and my fingers were itching for a cigarette, so I decided I needed something to keep my hands busy, and that something should be knitting.

I had been a crafty youngster, but I didn't really do much crafting in high school or college or grad school, but library school sucked,  and it was really driving me to smoke.  And once I picked up knitting, I realized how much I had missed crafting...so, now I go a little overboard on the craftiness.

So, I taught myself to knit over two years ago, and I just found out I've been doing the long tail cast-on WRONG the entire time!  Now, as far as I can tell, it's never really been a problem or messed up any projects, but my cast on edges have always been a little messy.  And now I know why...It's not really that big a deal, but now I need to retrain myself to do them properly!  ('Cause I actually like the real way better; being me, I managed to make it more complicated...)

I really like the light/dark contrast.  You did a great job!

That is absolutely amazing!  I love that you used the original illustrations, but now they're so much more...
