481  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re:first cable sweater! on: March 08, 2004 02:19:34 PM
you are awesome! your sweater looks great!

i was thinking of having a go at cables sometime soon, but i was thinking more along the lines of a nice small bookmark or something. (the thought of tackling a whole sweater makes me feel overwhelmed. hehe. let me see if i can get one whipped out in stockinette before i attempt a cabled one.)
482  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / return of the craftster on: March 07, 2004 07:45:50 PM
just wanted to say hooray that craftster is back! i was going into withdrawal while it was down. i think that may mean that i need professional help, but i don't care!

483  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:I want to make a bun cover on: March 07, 2004 07:38:02 PM
hmmm, i don't have a pattern to offer you, but it seems like you could make one up as you go along for crochet. just do it in the round - start out with a lot of increases for the first couple rounds until the bottom is as big as you want. then work them even until it's as deep as you want. maybe make a few decreases on the last couple rounds? or add some elastic thread?

sorry if this isn't very helpful! but there are lots of free patterns on the internet for crocheted hats that are worked in the round. it seems like you could scale one down to be a bun cover. good luck!

this probably wouldn't use the whole thing, but maybe you could sew it to the bottom of a skirt that would cover your derierre? if you had enough left over, you might even sew another strip to the bottom of a shirt to match.

486  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:Need help with knitting instructions on: February 29, 2004 08:36:33 PM
i think this means that you increase once on the 5th row, then again on the 6th row. then for the next 4 rows (rows 7 - 10) you work them even. then increase again on rows # 11 and 12, then even again for the next 4 rows (# 13 - 16) and so on. this means that if you start of with 42 stitches, it will take you 54 rows to increase to 60 stitches. then you work the rows even until you reach the specified length.

i'm not entirely positive about this, but it seems to make sense to me. i hope my explanation is clear; let me know if i need to explain it better. good luck! let us know how it comes out!
487  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re:My Shawl on: February 29, 2004 06:43:25 PM
very nice!

what kind of stitch is that? i like that it is somewhat open, but still looks sturdy and not completely lacy. (like it will actually keep you warm, in addition to being pretty!)
488  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / double-pointed vs. circulars? on: February 28, 2004 01:21:38 PM
hey everybody, i have a question for all the veteran knitters! i haven't tried knitting in the round yet, but i want to get to it soon. i know that working with dpns is supposed to be a bit more complicated than using circulars, but it seems like the dpns are more versatile. what i mean is, you can just buy a set for a particular size and have it covered, instead of buying several sets of circulars in the same size to get each length.

can anyone weigh in on their preferences? are there other advantages to circulars over dpns? thanks for any info/advice you can offer!
489  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re:pining for craft table that is on sale on: February 27, 2004 04:09:19 PM
steph, as much as i like the look of pottery barn stuff, it seems like it's never worth the amount of money they're asking. it is rather nifty though. i'd bet you could make one of these yourself!

what say you, crafsters who have done furniture/tables before? what's the easiest way to do this? i'm thinking maybe find an old table that you can cut holes in the surface, and then drop containers in. then cover them with some kind of plexiglass or something. hmmm... that would be an interesting project!
490  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re:Itty bitty shorts??? on: February 27, 2004 10:42:56 AM
I did it!! I really really did it!! woo!!
They are a little long and and for some reason in the back they are lower than the front * so my undies show when i sit* so i'll just wear a longer shirt with these.
No I don't really care for the fabric..But it was my scrap.
I made a pattern out of a pair of shorts and newspaper..

I think I'm ready to make a shorter pair!!

good job, cherries! unfortunately, i think the problem with them being lower in the back then in the front is related to a larger than average sized derierre for the particular size you wear. at least, that is what i suspect for when it happens to me.  Sad however, you can fix it in future projects using this pattern by lengthening the center back seam. hope that helps! i should make some new shorts too!
