1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: GRR! on: August 12, 2006 11:36:22 AM
Well, that bugs. Not only do subscribers not get the freebie [don't care what it is, personally. Free=good.] but if you're me, and many other subscribers, apparently, you don't even get the dang magazine until long after it's on newstands.  Someone tell me again why I bothered subscribing...

You might want to check out your local public library.  I got a copy from mine a few weeks ago and was able to keep it out for 3 weeks [long enough for me to decide I didn't love any of the patterns, but that's besides the point].  When I first started knitting, there wasn't much of a selection in my library system [besides Vogue Knitting, all they had was 80's era pattern books, with giant, huge shouldered sweaters and the like] but now they've a great selection of new books...Yay for libraries!

The shrug looks darling! I'm interesting in testing M-L; I just sent you a PM...I've never done a shrug, but I've done a little bit of lace so I won't be, like, totally starting from scratch. 
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Looking for a Domokun pattern, please! on: July 12, 2005 09:02:09 AM
So, um...what's a Domokun?  [Am I dumb for not knowing this?]
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting needles on airplanes? on: July 05, 2005 10:25:28 AM
Yes but the TSA also states that the decision whether or not to allow something on board that may be questionable is up to the individual agents.  So as I see it, it's not that rules vary from airport to airport within the US, but that enforcement varies from agent to agent.  Which sucks, verily, since there's no way, then, to predict who's going to allow my size 12 metal, 14" needles on board.  I've actually had ok luck with my knitting, and you obviously have had good luck sashers, but I have heard of folks who've been denied and had their needles taken from them.  Never hurts to be careful, I say. 
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Phildar Magazines in English on: May 19, 2005 12:38:25 PM
Thanks for all the Phildar tips! I checked out Knit N Tymes website and the prices aren't bad, thanks to the US/Canadian exchange rate.  Shipping costs to the US will up the costs, but all in all not a bad deal.  I've seen some European knitting mags sell for upwards of $15 at LYS's in my area, so $12 + s/h isn't a bad deal. 
And if I can remember more of my good french grammar and vocabulary from school, I'll write a letter to Phildar to encourage them find an American distributor. Though I wonder if I wouldn't be better off just writing them in English--as I said before, I can understand French pretty well [or I used to] and can speak halfway decently but never quite mastered the written portion of the language.

Does anyone know where I could find Phildar in the US, online or otherwise?  The patterns I've seen online are gorgeous, but I haven't yet stumbled across a hard copy of the mag yet. An all-french version would be fine, as I [used to be, at least, and hopefully still am] fairly proficient in French [ie. don't ask me to write it accurately, but I can read/speak pretty well]. 
Have you guys just found copies in your LYSs?
8  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Branching Out scarf knit-along on: May 11, 2005 12:43:13 PM
I know! I still find the Sl2K1P2S decrease really annoying - not difficult, just annoying!
Is that in the Branching Out pattern?  I'm neary done with mine, and I don't recall running across a pattern instruction like that.

eta-I just reviewed the pattern on knitty.com and I think I figured out what you're talking about--in the pattern it's sl2k1p2sso...when I saw "sl2k1p2s" I thought you meant the last two stitches were purled.  Never mind my confusion...I'm at work and it's hard to focus on important things like knitting and the internet when my bosses are hovering.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: knit bicycle bag on: April 27, 2005 10:33:05 AM
Was it Interweave?  I thought it was Vogue [not this most recent, but the one before].  I know there's a bike bag [a really cool one] in one of the current-ish mags I have at home.  I'll check when I get home from work and will post what I find.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Your Fave *CHEAP* yarn?? on: April 18, 2005 04:39:04 PM
The knitpicks yarns are a great value, as are most of the yarns from handpaintedyarn.com, but I have to say I'm also a huge fan of Patons Divine.  It's fluffy, but not too crazily fluffy, and is very soft.  Comes in some lovely colors [apparently there's a great orange version, though I've never seen it in person] and makes a great cozy wrap/lap blanket.  It does tend to get a little matted after a while, though.
