1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: socks: cuff-down versus toe-up? which do you prefer on: September 12, 2007 02:23:06 PM
I began knitting socks top-down, but it felt like it took forever to complete them.  The last couple pairs I've completed have been toe-up & they felt faster to knit.  In fact, I had to knit the last pair toe-up because I used Koigu which is light on the yardage.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Small Diameter Stitch Markers on: August 07, 2007 09:23:12 PM
I'm looking for stitch markers made for smaller needle sizes (US 3 or below).  Anyone have a favorite etsy or ebay seller or online store that sells stitch markers with a ring diameter of 7mm (1/4") or smaller (or a seller that would switch them out before mailing)?  I really like the weight & beauty I've seen, but I don't have much of an interest in switching out the rings myself if it can be avoided.

Thank you.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Adamas Shawl Needle Size on: June 20, 2007 01:58:44 AM
I'd really like an opinion on whether or not I should go down a needle size on my Adamas shawl.  I'm using KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud, a lace weight yarn, & knitting on the US sz5s as recommended, but it looks & feels (to me) to be to open.  No I didn't swatch (it is lace after all), but would really like some
input.  None of the pics online I've found (of it blocked) look as open as mine appears to be unblocked.  Should I keep going, try a US sz4, or go down to a US sz3?  (I have no issues starting over at all; it's a very simple pattern & I haven't gone that far anyway.)  Thank you!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pomatomus using skpo & k instead of k2tog tbl & ktbl on: May 06, 2007 12:23:50 PM
Has anyone attempted (or know of pictures of such) Pomatomus without the use of twisted stitches?  The fabric feels rather harsh to me & looks that way as well.  I've tried googling, but most of the results are about how to do a ktbl & related things & not about actually converting the pattern.  I know what the difference is in both technique & look, but I'm wondering if anyone else has thought of changing the pattern in this way.  I'd really rather not rip back ten rows to try it out just to end up ripping it out again & going back to the pattern as charted.

I'd love to be able to show all even when the thread is very long.  Barring that, being able to view 20+ posts per page instead would be nice.

I don't use Firefox (SeaMonkey suite girl here), but hubby does & he's not had any problems with the 2.x line that he's mentioned.  I like ie7 compared to the previous ones; I will not, however, ever switch to it.  Just wanted to let you know it was available.

The newest version of Firefox is, so I'm not sure what you mean by Firefox 5.  One of the features of Firefox 2.x is spell checking in textboxes automatically.  It underlines misspelled words with red.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What should a beginning knitter know to start? Share your wisdom! on: March 18, 2007 02:19:37 AM
All I've got to add is that perhaps think about beginning with a washcloth (or if out of acrylic perhaps call it a square & plain doily to put under something that's fancy enough on it's own).  Scarves are long & tedious (or so I think) & a first project that bores you will not help your interest in continuing the craft.

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!
