401  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:The Stereotypical Knitter on: March 23, 2004 10:17:21 AM
I came back to knitting when my youngest sister was pregnant with her second child (that would be about two months ago  Wink) and have found it to be more fun this time around. My other sister and I went on a yarn buying binge when I was in Ohio earlier this month and I loaded my carry-on luggage with yarn, needles and other knitting stuff. Suffice it to say, my luggage was searched but I was allowed on the plane with my knitting as I followed all the Trans. Safety Information guidelines (check out their sight if you want to knit on a plane - knitting neeles YES, Chinese fighting stars NO).

The "grandma" thing doesn't really bug me that much but I have been dragging my knitting everywhere and knit whenever I might have a few spare minutes (waiting for the kids are their lessons, waiting for the kids at the movie theater, before church, during a 'boring' movie). Most people who make the comments about being a 'granny' are probably wondering how you can knit.

The LYS snobbery extends to any small craft store. I also scrapbook and was in a great store, but they didn't have a particular brand of paper that I needed. When I asked about it at the checkout, the owner said that she didn't carry it and I asked if she knew of another store that carried it, she said that hers was the only store she shopped at. I relpied that it wasn't the only one I did Grin!

Okay, now I am jealous and just might have to ask my husband to buy one for Arbor Day (or whatever other 'holiday' I can think of). Can't wait to see what you make . . . if they look as half as good as the swatch I will be even more jealous - WOW!
403  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:Stupid question - what exactly does "turn" mean in knitting? on: March 23, 2004 09:40:42 AM
The rest of the directions are: Beg at face edge, cast on 60 sts. K1 row, p1 row, K1 row. K1 one row for turning row. Then cont in St st for 5 from turning row. Next row, (RS) K 30, turn. Leave rem sts to be worked later. Next row (WS) bind off 1 st, (center edge) purl to end. Cont to bind off 1 st from Center edge every other row twice more, 2 sts 4 times, 3 sts onse - 16 sts. Bind off. Rejoin yarn to work rem sts reversing shaping at center edge. The first part makes some sense, but after the K30, turn . . . am I turning my knitting around as if I have finished the row and then binding off as stated? It is so helpful to have an experienced knitter near by, but when you live in the mountains, the internet is a god-send Grin. This is from Family Circle Easy (Ha!) Knitting Fall 2002

Thank you so much for posting this! I live in Stroudsburg (and often think of Allentown as the "big city") so finding anyplace other than Wal-Mart that sells good yarn is wonderful!
405  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Stupid question - what exactly does "turn" mean in knitting? on: March 23, 2004 05:22:59 AM
Okay, I have recently begun knitting again (after a 4 year hiatus) and have come upon a phrase that always baffled me before. When the pattern says, "K1 row on WS for turning row. Then cont in St st for 5 from turning row" what the heck does turn mean? I am knitting a poncho for my sister's daughter and have a ways to go before I have to "turn" but that part of the pattern is beginning to scare me Shocked. Thanks - Jill

I just finished this purse and it was relatively easy (kind of boring, actually). I added "purl polka dots" half way through and they turned out okay, not great though. Now I have six skeins of Lion's Brand Microfiber left over . . . think I might have to knit a purse for my niece  Cheesy
