1  OWS19 in The Swap Gallery by kjd on: March 18, 2007 12:18:54 AM
I finally got a chance to digitally photograph my beautiful footies from eenodol.  My mom also thought they were cute & comfy-looking.

Thank you eenodol!

2  Buttons for Baby Sweater in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by kjd on: February 24, 2007 03:52:21 AM
I'm currently knitting a couple baby sweaters
for my cousin's twins & am stuck on what buttons to use.  I bought the buttons below, but am honestly not in love with any of them.  I like the number ones ok, but since there are five buttonholes per sweater...  Any suggestions?  (Buttons online?  Or what combination of buttons to use below?)  I'm looking for the primary colors (red, blue, & yellow) & green mainly.

3  Re: WS in the round... in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by kjd on: February 19, 2007 10:25:12 PM
1. Do you think "work sts. as they appear" is asking you to work in stockinette stitch, essentially?
Essentially, you're right.  If the stitch looks like a V, knit it.  If -, purl it.  (So in stockinette stitch fabric, the RS would be all knits & the WS all purls when knit flat.  When knit in the round SS is all knit stitches.)

2. If I'm working in the round can I just keep right on knitting those yarn overs on WS rows?
Yes because a purl on what would be a WS row when knit flat is a knit on the same row in the round.

3. What the heck do I do with the ktbl's on WS rows? Since I would ptbl if I was working on the wrong side, would that be the same as ktbl on WS rows when working in the round?
A ktbl on the RS is the same as a ptbl on the wrong side.  Both create a twisted stitch with the right-leg crossed in front of the left-leg.  You're creating a "column" of twisted stitches.

Edited to add the photo.

4  Sun & Star Needlepoint Kit in Needlework: Completed Projects by kjd on: April 14, 2006 11:46:35 PM
Finally, I took pictures of the most recent needlepoint project I'd finished, Dimensions' Sun & Star needlepoint kit.  Next time, I think I'll actually count it out instead of just following the painted on pattern.  I'd much rather end up with exactly what's on the front of the packaged.  It'll probably never get framed, since I tend to stitch for the fun & relaxation of the process.  I present the unblocked & unframed front & back.
