2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / IK Spring 2006 anyone? on: April 11, 2006 01:04:48 PM
Hello all!
I have an extra issue of the new IK - Spring 2006. Would anyone be willing to swap? Im looking for a IK Spring 2005. PM if you're interested.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / differences in cotton yarn on: March 03, 2006 09:08:59 AM
Ive been researching yarn for my Orangina by the lovely Glampyre. The recommended yarn is Rowan 4ply cotton. I hear great things about it but Ive been to lazy to actually go out and feel up a real ball.
In my understanding, mercerized is a process that makes cotton yarn slick and shiny so it doesnt pill. But the Rowan cotton is superwash, so does that mean its mercerized? Someone knit the tank up in Jaeger Siena, which has more appealing colors but its mercerized. Im afraid Ill get something really shiny. Anyone know of another 100% 4ply cotton thats cheaper than Rowan? or somewhere where I can get the rowan yarn for under 6 bucks a ball?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hourglass Sweater Question on: February 26, 2006 06:20:36 PM
Im up to the raglan decreases! Presently I only have two stitch markers on and I have a sinking feeling that I need to have four. Arent there two sets of decreases? Two on the left and right on the front panel and two on the back? The pattern says decrease three more times, does that mean decrease three more times in that row?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / m1 issues on figure 8 cast on on: February 12, 2006 06:28:00 AM
Ive decided to dabble into toe up socks. The figure 8 cast on is quite nice actually BUT I hate how m1 makes a purl ridge on certain sides. I know that it depends on wether you lift the bridge from the front or the back but I cant figure out when to do what. Does anyone have an answer? or another totally invisible form of m1?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / jaywalker socks on: December 31, 2005 10:16:28 AM
the pattern has been a breeze up until now
Continue even in established pattern (including the slipped stitches mentioned above) until foot measures 2 inches (5 cm) less than desired finished length. End with round 1 of zigzag pattern.*
does that mean established pattern including the decreases --
*Round 1: Work to 3 sts from end of needle #1, k2tog, k1. Work instep sts in established pattern (round 1 of zigzag pattern). K1, ssk at beginning of needle #4, work to end.
Round 2: Work to 1 st from end of needle #1, sl1. Work instep sts in established pattern (round 2 of zigzag pattern). Sl1 at beginning of needle #4, work to end. *
or just the original zizag pattern?

i continued with the decreases and i had a very pointed foot. i stopped when i had only  stiches on the 1and 4 needles. so i frogged an entire nights work and started working the original pattern. im so confused any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
