11  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / death of a loved cat... on: February 18, 2006 06:09:52 PM
we had to put my cat down today. it was very emotional. we have had her for about 16 years and she was very much a part of the family. the vet is going to be sending us her ashes and i really want to make something in her memory that we can put above her grave. her name was snowflakeand i was thinking about knitting a square snowflake and putting her name under it, but how could i keep that outside? could i put fabric in resin? any ideas on what i could do?
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting a heart-question on: February 12, 2006 10:54:52 PM
ok i am really confused. being stupid, i started knitting without reading the pattern first, and now i am half way done and stuck. the pattern goes like this
Starting at bottom point of heart, with 2 strands of yarn held together, cast on 3 sts.
Purl the first row.
Row 2- Inc 1 st in first stitch, knit across, inc 1 st in last st.
Row 3- Purl across
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until there are 35 sts on needle.
Now starting on the knit side, knit one row, purl one row 4 times (8 rows)
Divide for heart "humps "-
Knit across first 17 sts, place remaining sts on holder. Purl back on these first 17 sts.
On these 17 sts only, knit one row, purl one row.
Start decreasing. *
Next row, K 2 tog, knit across, to last 2 sts, k 2 tog.
Purl next row.
Repeat these last 2 rows until there are 7 sts remaining, ending on the last decrease row of k 2 tog each end. * Bind off on purl side row.

Slip sts from holder for opposite side of heart hump. Join yarn at center of heart , on knit side, and knit the first 2 sts tog. Knit across. Purl next row. Knit one more row, purl one more row.
Repeat decreasing rows from * to * above to 7 sts, then bind off as above.
Make another heart side in same manner.

my question is when they say to Knit across first 17 sts, place remaining sts on holder. Purl back on these first 17 sts.
On these 17 sts only, knit one row, purl one row. what do i do with the other half of the stitches. do i need 3 needles? how do i purl back across if i have stitches on the other needle? i can't think of a better way to ask, if anyone knows what i am talking about please help me!!!

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting with two colors? on: January 22, 2006 03:41:39 PM
i am attempting to try illusion knitting, but i have never knit with two colors before. i thought maybe i could just cast on with both colors and then alternate after that, but the pattern says to cast on with the main color. how do i add the second yarn so that i can work with both colors? thanks!

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / shrug pattern help on: December 27, 2005 01:54:23 PM

that is the link to the shrug i am wanting to make. it is a pattern for a bond ultimate sweater machine. i just got mine for christmas and i haven't made anything (besides a big square). this pattern is awesome, but i don't know exactly what they mean. what does RC stand for? the RC keeps changing, i'm not sure about much of this pattern actually. my interpretation would be pull out 54 needles and push back every other needle leaving 27 needles. knit 21 rows, increase 1 stitch on each side at row 21, 42, 64, and 85. and from there i have no idea what they mean. if anyone can help that would be amazing, also if anyone has any other beginner bond patterns i'd love it if you'd share them!
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / changing knitting style on: December 26, 2005 10:13:03 PM
i was wondering if anyone has tried to switch from one style of knitting to another and how it worked out for you. i've heard continential is faster for ribbing.
i am a english style knitter, but i am trying to switch to continential (or at least give it a try). i am working on an afgan in stocking stitch and i decided to try halfway through to work it in continential. it is very slow for me right now and i don't know if i will ever get the hang of it.
