okily dokily... sorry i haven't been keeping up with this thread, i've just moved and have no internet at home.  but anywho...

i made this hat using the following formula:

a dash = three orange stitches (ooo)
a dot = one orange stitch (o)
space between dots and dashes in the same letter = one white stitch (w)
space between dots and dashes between letters (but within one word) = two white stitches (ww)
space between dots and dashes between words = three white stitches (www)
so.. the words *i am a* would translate to
owowww  owooowwooowooowww  owooowww (separated into words with space at the end)

i hope that helps.

i used fair isle to knit in the morse code.  i figured the wearer of the hat might object to the message and try and remove the morse code; thus, i didn't just duplicate stitch it in because that would be easy to remove.  had i not, i think the message would have been changed to *i smell beautiful* or something... and that's just unacceptably nice.  negates the whole hidden message thing...

yes, i revel in my evilness.

Project: Morse Code Hat!
Pattern:  k2p2 ribbing, decrease for crown same as kittyville hat from snb.
Yarn:  (all left overs) alpaca yarn (brown), merino wool in *glazed carrot*, and some tweedy ecru rowan yarn (rowan cork?)
Needles: US 8's, Denise Interchangeable
Dimensions:  7.5' in height, fit's one redhead's head in diameter

the orange intarsia says *i am stinky la la* in morse code.  it's subtle enough so that most people won't realize that there's a hidden message, yet the inside joke is so fun!  i think the next hat will be done in the round and will feature a spiraling message in morse code.  whaddya all think?  

p.s.  this is my first post on craftster!  
thanks for all the comments  Grin
  • for morse code goodness, i used this website to translate: http://www.onlineconversion.com/morse_code.htm.  but googling *morse code* comes up with many great resources, too.
  • yes, the wearer of the hat knows what the hat says
  • each orange letter (whether it's one or three orange stitches) is separated by one white stitch.  words are separated by two white stitches.  i marked the beginning of the reading frame with a ^

wow! i'm so impressed with all these great knitted gifts! Shocked  y'all did such fatabulous jobs!  i myself just finished the hand warmers (woohoo!).  i used my denise needles (i only have one set) to knit these by using two circular needles and putting a size 5 on one side and size six needle on the other side of a single blue wire.  you just need to place the size 5 needle so that it is always going to be in your left hand.  that way, your gauge will always be determined by the size 6 in your right hand.  hope that makes sense...

thanks for posting the erratas, too!  i didn't see them before i finished and thought i was an idiot for not really understanding what the pattern was saying.   Undecided

oh and i used rowan cork to make the handwarmers which gave them a more *lacy* look Smiley

take care and happy holidays!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: The BIG wool debate...formerly known as the purple purse post. on: September 23, 2004 11:47:30 AM
i hate debating on-line.  it's just too easy to read something in a way the author didn't mean or get bashed for no apparent reason... not to mention bad grammar and trolls (not talking about this string or site).  but anywho...

just wanted to add this small company that not only has great wooly yarn (i've never heard a bad review), they're actively trying to help people around the world.  i don't know how they treat their animals, but it seems like they have a philosophy that would be against animal cruelty (as well as cruelty against humans).

i've been trying to figure this pattern out myself.  i've consulted the local yarn shop personnel and a couple of master knitters in the knitting circles i belong to.  i've even consulted divinity students (they learn german for studying da bible) on translating the original german pattern.  no clearcut answer on how to interpret the stinky pattern.

fisherman's rib is a lot softer and stretchier than k1p1 rib so i think imma gonna take the extra time to figure this out.   so far, i think the easiest way (not to mention the sanest) is to do http://knitting.about.com/library/blfishermanrib.htm

  it comes out very neatly, prettily and very very stretchy.
