1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Video Game (and Other Nerdy) Knitting Patterns on: April 14, 2012 06:43:04 PM
Check ravelry. They have a ton of patterns. Also knitty. Though I think the only one they really have is a pair of socks. http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring07/PATTbmp.html

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / nickel plate vs wood on: February 17, 2012 09:08:59 AM
I'm going to buy the knitpicks interchangeable needles, but I can't decide between the nickel plated and the wood. I've never really knitted with wood before, and I know I like metal. But I bought the try it thing and the wood is awesome and the nickel is just a little pointy. I'm just worried that the wood will loose their points over time. Any thoughts or comments?

I know this is a few months late, but I don't reccomend the boye kind. The knitpicks are a lot better, yes they screw in, but the joint where the cable meets the metal screw in part is so much better on the knit picks kind. I can spin my boyes, which isn't good.

That actually looks pretty good. Edges are always kinda funky until you get the hang of it. But slipping the stitches will make a nice smooth edge or just knit with the same tension at the beginning of every row, which usually means pulling it tight.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / counting rows on: February 07, 2012 07:44:25 PM
So I am actually long time knitter, but something that has always confused me is when you're counting rows, do you count the loops actually on your needle as a row? Or do you just stop at the stitches right below it?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cable Scarf!!! on: November 27, 2011 02:10:16 PM
Recently finished a cabled scarf. It wasn't very hard and it actually didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. It still turned out great but the picture with the pattern made it look more like the cables looked braided, but that didn't happen. Anyway here are my crappy phone pictures!

I got my package a few days ago and haven't been able to post because of illness and interbutt problems. I got a ton of things that are all sooo cool and I love them all. I think my favorite are the horns and embroidery package. I got a pair of horns, a bag (of course), candy (yum!), stitch markers, a needle book, a pack of embroidery designs, a chocolate rat mold, a pumpkin, and bead spider. And here are the pictures!

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / What do you do with your extra tiddly bit floss? on: September 16, 2011 03:13:51 PM
Ok so when you pull apart your floss for finer detail or whatever, and you only need to use two strands, what do you do with your extra strands? (like if you don't need to use the color again in the work)

Also Jenny Hart mentions that you can "strip" your floss before working with it so it looks super smooth, and you do that by running it over velcro. But which side of velcro I wonder. The hooks or the felt-like side?
