11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What Do You Listen To While Knitting? on: December 30, 2007 08:16:59 AM
Not really a resource for textbooks (unless, I guess, you're in English or Classics or something), but I love listening to Librivox. They've got tons of audio files of books read by volunteers up for free. It's really nice for when you're doing something mindless (stockinette), especially to a deadline, when you have lots of time to listen to something the whole way through.

Otherwise, I just listen to the TV/movies. Nothing subtitled, though... that doesn't work so well. Wink

No, it's totally cool! I would definitely love to see some images of your installation! This coming semester, I think I'm going to kind of continue with this idea (I only really had the two balloons and 6 drawings this time, because I only had 2 weeks to get it all done), and hopefully when we put up out class group-show I'll be able to get some more images.

There are some pretty amazing artists out there doing knit installations... there was one guy featured in Interweave Knits (this last winter issue). I was definitely excited to see the article, so I have a little bit of the same "knitstallation" obsession as you do. Wink

Veru cute! Did you knit it top down? Or bottom up with earflaps attached at the end? Either way, I am definitely a fan.

I'm not a needleworker by any means, but this caught my eye. WOW. It's really a very charming little portrait!

i love it!
my boyfriend came up with a great idea.
to knit like a balloon shaped sack, then blow up the balloon and use watered down elmers glue to keep it stiff. then pop it and add a stick. like those invisible dogs kind of. haha.

so, did you knit like a hat that was closed at both ends? i'm not sure i get it :]

I actually dipped them in sugar water. Because there's a helium shortage, I couldn't fill them and make them actually float, so I just hung them with fishing wire. When the balloons deflate, the knitting will keep its shape, which is pretty cool.

I cast on something like 6 stitches, and then increased from there until it was wide enough, and then knit a few rows with no increases, and then decreased like a hat near the top...

OOh! I definitely second the Ribbed Lace Bolero. It's a ridiculously quick knit and very easy to dress up or down. Good luck!

Thank you both for you help. Shadowstealer, that's exactly what they are! I'll send that right to my friend!
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help identifying stitch pattern? on: December 06, 2007 08:27:24 PM
Hi everyone! I need a little bit of help identifying a stitch pattern for a friend. A while back, her roommate's mom made her these mittens, but she's since had a falling out with her, and can't ask her how she did them. We've figured out that they're made with two different yarns (durr), and as far as I can tell, there's no cabling, just some popping out sections in garter stitch (orange), and little craters in stockinette stitch (rainbow!) Has anyone seen a similar pattern before, and if so, do you know where we can find it?

You guys are usually pretty on the ball, so any advice you can give would really help!

I usually find it pretty easy to say "well, I'm also busy, but I try to make time for knitting." In situations where the knitting=weird/time-consuming/grandmotherly situations come up, I usually end up encouraging people to try knitting. I figure that, after all, if they don't get it now, the only way for them to understand is to do it themselves! And more knitters in the world can't possibly be a bad thing. Wink
