11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / SeeMe>Cabling= SeeMe Wins! on: April 21, 2006 04:45:59 PM

This is my... sort of latest FO. However, since my latest FO is a sneaky surprise for my mum, I canna show it. (She might find it!) So. Yes, here it is: Made from a Paton's pattern, with Paton's Classic Merino Wool in, uh, natural mix. I love the cables. I love cabling.  I don't lie the bobbles though. It makes it look like I have many nipples. At least to me...

You can see my blocking towel/blanket in the background. And lots and lots of dolls. Those are my mom's dolls. Anyone want to buy one?

Ph33r teh cablz~~~

I like it. And if you live in Brantford--go see it. It's going to be hanging up at Len's mill. And you can also lok at my big felted bag, tickertape jacket and biiig long cardigan made out of The Most Horrible Yarn Ever.

More FOs on my blog.


Ghooooost Gooooat!
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Starting a Knitting Group. Wish me luck. on: February 12, 2006 01:07:02 PM
Well, on Monday, I take the first step toward starting a knitting/crocheting/whatever group in Brantford, Ontario. Going to scour the town for places to hold it. Wish me luck, folks! <3

Hoping that this is posted on the right board... anyways...

Also, I have a question: If you were to be lured into a new knitting group, what would do it for you? Fancy posters, a snuggly warm cafe? I'd like to know so that I can lure people into my trap group. ^_^
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with reading pattern? on: February 10, 2006 06:43:16 PM
Eh, working on this darn pattern and it's got me all confused at this point:

Shape Sides: Dec 1 st each end of next and following 10th rows 4 times more.   contt even until work from begin measures 22 and a half ins, ending with a purl row.

Inc 1 st each end of next and following 8th rows twice more.

Oka, uh, what the heck does this pattern want from me?! Do I decrease every tenth row? Gah! Stop not making sense, pattern.

Edit 'coz I'm a dork who doesn't know how to use her laptop keyboard just yet.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Question about a Patons Pattern--anyone made this? on: February 02, 2006 03:14:48 PM
So anyways, I finally decided to try my hand at knitting a store display. Len's Mill in Brantford put the bug in my mind, so I've been kind of dancing about the issue for a while--excet, yesterday, I went for it. Went in, talked to the yarn department manager. She eyes me warily, not expecting one so young to not only be a knitter, but an honest knitter. Finally she explains the rules to me, in short sentences. I understand this--I am a teenager, my hair is short, and I wear a big coat. I get a lot of suspicion. (especially since, when I'm holding something, my sleeve is long enough to cover the item. Plus I have this bad habit of putting thing sin my pocket when I don't want to hold them anymore. Unconcious gesture. Anyways..) She explains that I get yarn. I knit something. Something is given to store. Something is showed in store for three months. Something is given back to me. I say okay. Say, does she need someone to knit a Yarn Of the Month Display? Yes, but for april. Yarn(s) of the month are Glittalic, Silverlash, Bohemian. Okay. I go to look at patterns. My mum falls i love with a long cardigan from the Karma series. So I get my yarn, take it home, blah blah.

I haven't started it yet (will as soon as I finish my current progjects) and I would like to know: Has anyone knit the long cardigan from the Karma Three book? If so, are there any glaring errors? I checked the Paton's site and nothing, but it -is- the newest book, so,.. lemme know?
15  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / I call it 'DarkMarky'. ^_^ on: January 21, 2006 11:12:52 AM
Well, completeld my first sweater. Did this in about ...uh, well, I started last friday and finished this Sunday. So about a week and two days?  (of knitting after I got home from school)  Proud of myself. *puffs out chest*

But I didn't want skulls and crossbones. I wanted the Dark Mark! After realising that I can' chart ut a snake coming out of a skulls mouth, I settled for inartsiaing a snake below the skull. I think it looks kinda lame. Oh well!
Didn't use Lambs Pide buly, either. For a couple of reasons, really.  1. It's too expensive for me. 2. It's not availablein my area. 3. Wool is itchy. Yay for cheap 1lb of bernat chunky!

s'still warm.
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with Ripe with Indescision? on: January 17, 2006 12:40:12 PM
Hi. I'm starting this pattern, from the anticraft, but this has got me confused.

Right Slant:

1: (Color A) k2, [sl 2, yo, k2tog] repeat to last 4 sts, sl 2, k2
2: (Color A) k2, [sl 2, p2] repeat to last 4 sts, sl 2, k2.
3: (Color B) k2, [yo, k2tog, sl 2] repeat to last 4 sts, yo, k2tog, k2.
4: (Color B) k2, [p2, sl 2] repeat to last 4 sts, p2, k2.

Uh, do those numbers indicate rows?

Yeah, I'm proobably just an idiot, but I don't get it. Here's the whole thingy..

Help, plz.

17  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Skully help? on: January 09, 2006 05:14:52 PM
Silly question, but I've just gotten to the neckshaping bit. And the pattern says to "BO 2 sts at neck edge at beg of every other row" ... uh, what does this mean? Do I bind off at the neck edge, or at the beginning? Yeah, confusing.
 Thanks in advance!
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with Knitty's Branching out pattern? on: November 27, 2005 11:03:00 AM
Hi. I just started knitting a couple of weeks ago, and I've never really done a pattern before. I decided to try branching out because I just recycled a sweater and got this superthin lace quality yarn that I wanna use up, quickly. (It's 98% Lambswool, 1% Spandex (ee.) and 1% God Only Knows.) But, I can't really read the pattern, so couldya give me some help?

Row 1 [RS]: k3, ssk, yo, k5, [yo, k1] 5 times, yo, k5, yo, k2tog, k3 (31 sts)

That's the part that's giving me trouble. Do I do the yo kn1 for the k5 before? Or is this something else? Probably something eveyrone else knows, and I just can't get. Ah well.
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Free Yarn. Yay! on: November 25, 2005 02:05:41 PM
http://furyarn.com/main/  I don't know how big of a sample it is, or how long it takes to get here-just signed up for mine today, though. Just thought I'd share this with the knitting community. Seems to be open to all, not quite sure on that though.
 It doesn't seem to be very animal friendly, though. o.O Made from beaver, fox and something else. So, yeah.
