1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / PSA: Do not knit Rogue while angry. on: December 19, 2006 11:56:35 AM
Who knew?  I guess I should have.

I finished the whole sleeve chart and about 20 more rows before I thought, hey!  I should check my gauge again!  Yeah.  6 st to the inch.  In some places 7.  It was a perfect 4.5 when I started.

I know cables make my gauge tighter and being livid doesn't help either.   Angry Grin

Moral:  When visiting mom, only knit things where gauge doesn't matter.  Like nooses.   Grin
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Most invisible increase in middle of row? on: December 06, 2006 09:53:12 AM
I need to increase 1 purl at beginning of row and then midrow. At the beginning, I just purled twice into the same stitch and it's perfect. Midrow, that made a tiny eyelet that annoys me and because it's sleeve increases, the same increase will appear every six rows all the way up - I know I'll be really focused on it.

There are cables adjacent - could I do a bar increase without ill effects you think?

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I need some help with ribbing... on: October 19, 2006 08:26:28 PM
So I'm knitting my second pair of socks and I decide that I want 5 inches of  P1, K1 ribbing, right?  As I get ready to start the transition to K every row, I realize I've turned my work inside out on my DPNs and the attractive part of the rib is on the inside.  Usually I can knit either way on DPNs, but at this point in the sock, I can't go the right direction if I turn it back right side out.

Does that make any sense whatsoever?

What really confuses me is that I thought K1, P1 rib would look the same on both sides and I was flustered when I realized it didn't.  On the outside rib as it stands, the purls are the raised stitches when I wanted the knits to be the raised stitches in the rib.

Does anyone know how I would avoid this in the future?  This is so what I get for fiddling with a sock pattern when this is only my second pair and I'm a sort of new knitter. :sigh:
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink Paisley Schlep-All Messenger Bag *pic heavy* on: June 20, 2006 10:33:21 AM
This is the second bag, this one with interfacing on the interior as well as exterior - hello!  It's tough as nails.  The outside fabric is decorator weight.

Thanks for looking!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Flip Flop Summer Bag on: June 19, 2006 04:09:14 PM
This is the 4th or 5th thing I've sewn and I feel like a real seamstress - I bent two needles in the process and pinned the webbing of my thumb to the interfacing.

Thanks for looking!
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Fabric Journal Cover - chunky image on: May 06, 2006 09:23:23 AM
Underneath this fabric cover is the ugliest plastic cover ever; the pages inside are perfect for art journaling and for writing, so I bought it with the intention of making a cover.  Unfortunately I don't have a before pic, but you can trust me: it was hideous.  Smiley

Thanks for looking!
