1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Reupholstered Recliner - a first try jump off the deep end *Pic Obese* on: August 19, 2008 08:25:57 PM
When you said 26 pieces, I thought you were joking. Then I scrolled down. I would have gotten to that point, seen all those pieces, cried, and bought a new chair. You should be so incredibly proud!

I love the picture with the blue fabric and the reclining mechanics hanging out. They look like legs or something.

Thank god! If there was such a word as embroideried, or, (gasp) embroiderying, I was going to seriously lose faith in the English language.
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Embroidery: noun or verb? on: August 18, 2008 01:42:44 PM
I have always thought that embroidery is a noun, and embroider is its related verb. I have looked it up online, and I found nothing to the contrary. However, since I have started doing it, I have heard and read a LOT of people say things like "I don't know how to embroidery" or "that is embroideried" or "I will embroidery that." Am I missing something? I'm not trying to criticize people for improper grammar, it's just that it sounds so awkward to me that I keep thinking they must be doing it on purpose and maybe they know something I don't.
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: cross stitching on an airplane on: August 17, 2008 02:39:15 PM
For what it's worth, I flew U.S. to Europe, to Russia, back to Europe, and back to the U.S. I didn't have any problems until I was going through security for the flight back to the States. I had my knitting, and they took my scissors. I think post-9/11, if something happens, no one wants to be the one who let them on the plane into the U.S. The airline had the 4 inch or under rule, and these were definitely under 4 inches, but they took them anyway. I would say give it a try, just get cheap scissors you won't care if they take.

The first one reminds me of those pieces of toast with Jesus burned in the center. I like it.
7  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Trellis Knitalong, anyone? on: April 15, 2008 08:17:08 PM
I know this is a really old thread, but I have a question. On the collar directions, it says: "Work these sts in Seed Stitch as set, then pick up 6 sts along the lower neck edge. (Note: you will not be picking up sts all the way up the neck edge, only in the first 6-8 rows.) 11 sts on needle." The part that gets me is when it tells me that I will be picking up stitches in the first 6-8 rows. So, I am supposed to keep picking up stitches for the next rows? It never actually TELLS me to, it just infers it in the "note."

I'm working on the back to school vest and I'm up to the bust increases and have run into a stupid problem - after  I do the first increase sequence, where do the stitch markers go for the next rows? (the removable markers, marking the darts)  Am I supposed to keep moving them up each row?  I'm pretty sure that's it, but I want to double check.  Anyone?

I'm pretty sure you should slip the marker. I can check tomorrow for sure, I don't have the book with me at the moment.

stitchlikeaboy, i made mine in the same colorway and it pooled in the same places for me also.  i think it looks good though.  and trust me, it will flatten beautifully.  i made this for my boyfriend and the only reason he didnt like it was because it was all curly & lumpy.  after blocking it he loves it.  and it gets even softer after blocking too!

Thanks for the info! I'm looking forward to finishing and blocking.  Smiley

I agree, it's like a totally different scarf after blocking! Your's doesn't look any lumpier or curlier than mine, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Smiley

That definitely helped! Thanks. Smiley

No way am I frogging! I've worked WAY too hard on this thing. Tongue I always wondered why stitch markers seemed so useless to me...Tongue

Again, thanks a ton! Smiley

I did that EXACT same thing when I first used stitch markers! I also wondered why the heck they had me even put them there, because they seemed useless after a few rows.
