Wow, that's really pretty. I've never knit lace before, is it super hard?

Oh, no, not super hard at all. You just need to make sure you keep track of rows and do some counting, but it's all just a pattern of yarnovers and K2tog.

I think lace knit hats are a great use for sock yarn! I've used this pattern:


with sock yarn and it's turned out great. I've done 2 hats in toddler size, just adjusting the number of stitches for gauge/pattern.

A HA! found it:


This is exactly what happened to me, and she's posted a correction. I wish MagKnits had an errata spot! I'm bummed that I have to start this all over again, but glad that I'm not crazy.

Hi All,

I've started knitting these:


and am having a bit of trouble. I got to the first picot bindoff and realized I had way too many stitches on the needles. It seems the yarnovers on the left side of the thumb area are correct, but the ones on the right side went up in a straight line rather than fanning out, slanting to the right like they should, resulting in there being too many stitches to the left of the lace pattern. The instructions say to YO before the marker on the RS, but for whatever reason it screwed up the pattern. What could I be doing wrong? Any tips? I wasn't able to find pattern errata anywhere. Thanks!

I'm headed to Scottsdale April 11-18 to visit family, and wondered if there were any good craft shows, arts events, etc. worth checking out. I already checked the City of Scottsdale webpage, and found the gallery walk and Sunday arts market info. Anything in Phoenix? Thanks!

I'm pretty sure there's one of these in Deb Stoller's "Stitch 'N' Bitch Nation"you should check out that forum here at craftster!

Well, I got this figured out and made it work. The hat came out beautifully and I've now knitted a second one. If anyone wants the pattern, let me know. It's a baby size hat (like 6-18  mo), knit from variegated sock yarn in a zig-zag eyelet stitch with a ribbed edge.

Hmmm... maybe. I'm also thinking I could just eliminate one set of eyelets at the beginning of the 12-row repeat, and decrease two stitches per row (the pattern alternates purling every stitch on the wrong side rows and following the eyelet pattern on the right side rows). I might need to do a small test version to work it out. I'm such a visual person that I have a hard time looking at the written instructions for the pattern and doing the math to make it work. Thanks!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone else gasp at the thought of spending $150+ on yarn for 1 project? on: January 06, 2007 05:39:33 AM
Friends and I have been discussing this problem, and here are a couple of closeout and discount yarn sites (other than the previously mentioned knit picks) we've found:



Watch the shipping on knitting warehouse though--maybe do a large order with some friends to make it worthwhile.

Hope that helps!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What to knit for a hockey player? on: January 06, 2007 05:31:58 AM
Well, I have three brothers, one who plays ultimate frisbee at college, one who is an artist in New York City, and one who lives out west and likes to snowboard. All of them got wool wrist warmers (like a fingerless glove) from "Last-Minute Knitted Gifts" for Christmas, and they were a big hit. I'd think they would work great for hockey too.
