1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / men that knit on: January 19, 2006 05:40:35 PM
Here's a funny thread on men that knit.


This is just me, and I came to this conclusion today. "Some men don't like knitting and label men that do as homosexuals because you can't win at knitting" .

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What music do you knit to? on: December 26, 2005 05:00:39 PM
I have a mix that I listen to, it starts with the "Cro-Mags" then goes to "Echo and the Bunnymen", straight to "Jet's to Brazil" followed up with some "Jolie Holland" then top it off with some "Postal Service". What do ya'll listen too?

Hey I'm a knitter living in Roswell. If there are any crafty folks in NE Atlanta, OTP folks looking for a place to meet up, Please send me an email at slowpockets@gmail.com. I check it at least everyother day. There is an awesome Caribou right down the street and for you drunken crafter's there is a cozy pizza place called Freelands in the area. Can't wait to hear from y'all.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / *k1. p1* = increase stitch? WTH? on: December 05, 2005 06:26:28 PM

I just started knitting and I've completed one long skinny scarf that I did all in garter stitch. Now I'm trying something a little more difficult and it's just not working. I seem to have a problem when trying to make a seed stitch. Say I start out with four stitches, after a few rows all of a sudden I have eight stitches (but not everytime, it could be six, or five, or 12 etc.). I have a feeling that this is because the edges of my piece always have this ungainly loop when I switch hands and I'm grabbing to much yarn when I make that first stitch. Not only that but my loops seem to cross over the top of my needle and form this sort of crossed over "x" thing. So my question(s) is/are:

1. How do I keep from having these unnecessarily large loops on the edges of my piece?

2. Am I getting these extra stitches and these "x" things because I'm just sloppy knitting, or could it be that I'm doing something wrong with the yarn when I'm switching from a knit to a purl?

Thanks in advance for keeping any ridicule in balance with the question Smiley

Also I would imagine this is a common blunder, however if my description doesn't make sense I'll be glad to post a picture of the said infraction.
