1  Texas / Texas: North Central / Dallas (area) Stitch 'n Bitch on: June 11, 2004 07:30:39 AM
Hey craftsters!

In case you didn't already know, there is a Dallas area SnB group up and running!

We meet twice a month, the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month (unless there's a holiday) at the Central Market on Greenville and Lovers . . . in the community room upstairs above the cafe.

For more info, there is a website:  http://stitchnbitchdallas.blogspot.com/

Hope to see you there!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Gauge Rage !!?? on: April 16, 2004 06:16:51 AM
Hey y'all . . . I have a question concerning gauge:

I am getting ready to make my first sweater, and the gauge in the pattern is 13stitches/20 rows = 4 inches w/10.5(us) needle.

So, with US10.5 needles, I made my swatch and it came out 3.75" x 3.75".  Argh.  So I switched to size US11, and it came out 4.25 x 5.25!  So, on stitches anyway, I am 1/4" off either way.  Grrr.   I need a size 10.75 needle (which doesn't exist!)!

So, here's what I'm thinking:  Should I use the 10.5 needles and make the sweater a bit bigger to allow for the 1" reduction in circumference, or should I use the bigger needles and make it one size smaller?  I'm thinking the first scenario since the swatch came out closer to gauge overall.  Plus, the pattern is for an oversized sweater to begin with.

I should note that I haven't *washed* my gauge swatches yet; I'm planning on doing that, but wanted to get a little advice in case it makes no difference after the swatches are washed.  

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / fun fur question on: March 08, 2004 08:06:31 AM
I have a question for all y'all out there who have knitted with Fun Fur:  is there a trick to making all the "fur" come out on one side?  Or is it not an issue?  I'm getting ready to make the cat bed from Stitch n Bitch, and have never used fun fur yarn before . . .

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / needles and notions ON SALE, oh my! on: March 03, 2004 03:03:18 PM
Hey y'all,

I'm all outta breath from running up the stairs to my apartment to post this . . . but I had to let everyone know!

I'm not sure if it's a nationwide thing or not, maybe just regional here in North Texas, but worth checking out . . . anyway I slacked out early at work this afternoon to do some errands, and just happened to stop at Hobby Lobby (for a look), and found that they have ALL their knitting needles, crochet hooks, and accessories for HALF OFF!!!!!  

The sale is only until Saturday, but they are willing to issue a raincheck for specific items that are out of stock.  

Suffice it to say that I totally stocked up on every knitting needle size they carry that I don't already own, as well as some other stuff (stitch holders, cable hooks, etc).  But hey, it's not what you spend, it's what you save, right?

Hey, are there any Dallas knitters out there who would be interested in starting a Stitch N Bitch group with me?  I can't find an existing one anywhere, and I KNOW there have to be some other knitters around here somewhere!!   Cheesy
