my jaw literally dropped. Both you and the dress look phenomenal.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / the world of increases on: July 12, 2006 06:03:52 PM
I know of two increases: the bar increase and the m1. Earlier today I began knitting an armwarmer, no pattern in particular, in stockinette and I started using the m1 increase. Perhaps it's just me but it left a bit of a hole below which I wasn't happy about. SO I used the bar increase which... well, you know, left a little bar there. Here's my questions: 1) Do you think I was doing m1 wrong?; 2) Is there an increase out there that won't leave a trace?

With Gratitude

The silk is so feminine. Corsets are definitely on my to-learn list now. Excellent work my friend.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Finally! Someone's pregnant! on: January 07, 2006 06:24:37 AM
I never thought I would get stoked about a friend being pregnant, but now i'm starting to make baby socks and thinking about potential sweaters.  They don't know if it's a boy or a girl yet, but when they do, I'm going to town!  I have some white and pastel flecked white  yarn sitting around, so I'm using that to make the socks and probably a blanket  or something in the meantime. 

My fave pattern so far are some really cute baby booties with ladybugs on them from the book <i>Knit Baby Head and Toes</i>.  I got it from the library and have been dreaming up grand schemes.

I went to the craft store and they had a lot of baby patterns on the free leaflets, mostly from Bernat.  Some of those look nice, and I can't have enough free patterns.  I'm also happy that baby yarn is relatively inexpensive and it won't take as long to make an entire sweater.  I don't think my friend will be able to deal with hand washing, so I'm sticking with good old acrylic and cotton.  Though I'll probably cave and make one  pair of angora booties for picture taking, once I'm sure they won't be allergic.

I considered angora because of it's softness beyond imaginabiliy, but I'm not sure if she would be up to hand washing it and whatnot. I do want to make something with merino wool, probably a blanket, for warmth.
