Freezing the yarn...what a fantastic idea! Will have to try that for myself

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / En-gauge-ing on: September 23, 2006 12:02:30 AM
I'm having trouble getting gauge for a few things I'm TRYING to work on.

Firstly Fat Cat Pillow, I just can't get the gauge required

Gauge: 20 sts and 28 rows = 4" in St st. I'm getting 24 sts to 4", and If I go up another size needle the fabric is going to be to open (holey). I've found I can get gauge if I use 2 strands of yarn but seeing as this is a chart pattern, I'm not sure if this is viable or will muck up the chart completley

Second is Whiteliesdesigns Shapely Tee, I've decided to substitute the yarn for Patons Zhivago, so soft and cuddly. Again the problem here is I can't get gauge, it's WAY to open, if I convert the pattern to fit a gauge I like, will I screw it up completley?

If you go to knittinghelp.com, there's a fantastic video on how this is done.

awwww, I'm having so much of an issue with this, I can't reach my gauge Sad

I'll keep trying but the yarn is starting to look too open (holey)

Think I could get away with 2 strands of yarn?

Hey, I think your idea to do something for both of them is great, you could do a whole 'watch a movie together' gift, buy 'em a movie (Rebel without a cause or Joe Dirt?), get 'em some microwave popcorn, do the afghan, all in a nice re-usable basket...
Family stuff can be difficult, the fact that you are willing to give a gift, and put this much thought into it (because we all can go out and buy a gift certificate for a manicure...), should show her (or at least your dad) that you are willing to be adult and mature. Ultimately if it is something you are sure at least your dad will appreciate, then it would be worth putting the time into. Smiley

I really like this idea....might steal borrow it for myself

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / My quick rant on: September 13, 2006 12:26:03 AM
I hate that you have access to beautiful yarns that I don't.
I just want to stamp my feet and jump up and down, then say *please sir, I want some more (yarn)* and have it magically appear at a shop near me.

I don't like the thought of purchasing yarn off the internet because I really like to feel the yarn before I buy it.
I like to hear the ohhhh's and ahhhh's that escape from my mouth when I feel a new yarn for the first time.

Ok, that's it, thanks for letting me have my rant, now back to your scheduled programming.

You could run some elastic thread through it (on the inside of course) if you didn't want to frog it and start agan.
