1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Problems with YO, how to read it?Sorted :) on: December 11, 2006 01:29:50 PM
I cast on to knit argosy (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTargosy.html) from Knitty, but when I got to the third row and began to knit as I thought I should from reading the pattern and the chart, I ended up with at first one extra stitch, then I changed how I thought I should read it and ended up with too few stitches.
So, basically, how do I read/knit the YOs?

Do I put the yarn over the needle and knit a stitch and that counts as the YO?
Put the yarn over the needle and count that as YO, then knit the next stitch with the yarn over?
please help Smiley
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Is the interfacing really necessary? on: October 24, 2006 08:18:57 AM
I recently bought the jacket pattern Vogue V2873 and it calls for interfacing on the front, the flaps and the back of the jacket. Thing is, the fabric I bought is already fairly stiff and I don't want the jacket to be stiff as I'd prefer it to be wearable and comfortable.

So really if I have sturdy enough fabric could I omit the interfacing on the front/back and just use it on the collar?

Oh and also, would it be easy enough to add a zip a la biker jacket rather than the buttons on the double breast?

thanks Smiley

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Removing diamantes on jeans? on: August 26, 2006 02:43:05 PM
I have a pair of old jeans I've been planning to recon but the only problem is there are some diamantes on the back pockets which seem to be firmly stuck on  even though they've been washed quite a bit so how can I remove them? I picked a couple off but they left a mark on the fabric and one left the shiny back behind.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What to do with 2.5m of polka dot crepe?? on: May 29, 2006 06:26:54 AM
I bought this fabric with the intention of making a top . . . 3 weeks later and the pattern still hasn't arrived and I've gone off the idea of making the top already  Roll Eyes

that's the fabric, black and white polka dot crepe. I wondered about making a dress like these from Rachel Pally, but it seems like hers are jersey type fabric and also the dots might look a bit too busy when paired with my tallish frame.
Sooo any ideas on what I could do with all this fabric?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Fluorescent polka dot strap top type thingy er yeah. . .tute on P2,Pic obese on: April 23, 2006 01:33:38 AM
Weell been lurking here for well over a month now gathering ideas Wink but this top came to be from browsing a topshop website and thinking 25 for that? Psshh no way! Soo I bought some fabric, made a mini pattern and got to work. I think it's pretty good for a first from scratch own pattern thingy seeing as I've only used my machine about 4 times since I got it 2 years ago *hangs head in shame*
Oh and this is actually my first wearable project sooo therefore its my first post Smiley
