1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / PLEASE help me-- chart reading :( on: January 25, 2010 07:48:00 PM
 I am trying very hard to knit a blanket (http://knittikins.wordpress.com/patterns/levis-baby-blanket/, for reference) for a friend having a baby. So far, I have restarted this blanket FOUR times.

 Two things are important in this sad, sad query: I have never read/knit from a chart before and I'm left handed.

  So, the first two times I started I did not realize that patterns are read from right to left. It looked horrible in some places and fine in others and I went to my lovely LYS today to try and get some help. They pointed me on the right direction there and I went on my way.

  My concern now is-- a chart is read from right to left because you knit from right to left? I knit from left to right... what do I do now?!

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Sewing Godesses (and Gods)-- Please, help me out? on: January 23, 2009 04:07:51 AM
To start off-- I know absolutely nothing (and I'm not kidding here) about sewing machines. I've used my aunt's, but I don't know the make or model, because I didn't pay any attention (biting me in the butt now, eh).

I want to get a sewing machine. I've been asking for one for years and it's just not going to happen unless I do it myself. The problem (in addition to knowing nothing) is that I am a poor, poor vet student, so I will be shopping off of the likes of Craigslist, which means I don't get to do a lot of picking and choosing.

In that scenario, a general idea of "good" and "bad" brands (and models) would be immensely helpful. So please, crafty people, help me out and give me some suggestions?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Gretel pattern help, please?! on: December 16, 2007 03:56:48 PM
What does "knit in pattern as set mean"? Any one?

I haven't had time to knit in a very, very long time and I really want to finish this. I'm not having a problem with the actual skills needed for the pattern, except perhaps for reading the pattern itself!

Thanks in advance for your help!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / not your usual icord question on: May 09, 2006 11:02:23 AM
if i were to knit icord a whole bunch of icord, could i then turn around on larger needles and use my knitted icord as if it were yarn?

i'm supposed to be studying for my cell biology final (last one), so i've not been actually able to touch any of my needles for weeks. apparently though, i can't keep knitting off the brain.
