1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Friday Night Knitting Club... the MOVIE on: February 16, 2007 05:46:08 AM
Have you all seen this?  It's got Julia Roberts starring.  Looks like knitting has finally made it big!  Wink
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Finally broke my sock cherry! on: February 12, 2007 04:20:25 PM
My boy wanted me to make him thick indoor socks.  He's been bugging me since my first garter stitch scarf!  I finally figured out what I was doing thanks to Silver's Sock Class.  So without further ado:
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Top Down Socks pattern question on: February 01, 2007 07:30:53 PM
I'm having a hard time figuring out what the pattern is trying to tell me.  I'm using Silver's Sock Class.  My question is this:

Repeat rows 1 & 2 until you have worked a total of 32 24 20 rows.
End after the last slip 1, knit 1 row (right side row). This actually means you'll knit one less that required, but when counting rows, you'll have half as many slipped stitches along either side as rows required, making rows easy to count.

I'm using the big yarn, so I'm doing 20 rows.  So.  When the pattern says to end after the last slip 1, knit 1 row, does this mean that I'm technically only doing 19 rows?  Or do I do 21?  Does that make sense? 

Thanks for your help!  I really want to get my first socks finished!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting socks. HELP! on: January 20, 2007 09:02:57 AM
After much throwing and cursing, I finally figured out the whole crochet-cast on thing.  HOWEVER, using knitty's universal sock calculator Somehow, my D is 5.5 stitches.  That doesn't make sense with the whole cast on thing.  How can I make a sock with only 6 stitches cast on?  I'm so frustrated; I'm at the point of tears.

A = 4
B = 7
C = 11
D = 5.5
E = 13
 Huh Huh Huh

I'm using knitpicks swish superwash (I know it's not sock yarn).  My gauge is 5 stitches per inch.

I don't know what to do or where I've gone wrong.
6  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Sampler afghan? on: January 19, 2007 01:48:04 PM
Anyone want to practice new stitches/cables/lace/etc?  That's what I'm doing with leftover yarn.  I figured it's great for those ADD knitting moments of needing instant gratification.  Instead of following a specific pattern, I'm keeping it random by knitting until I'm bored and then piecing the bits together when I've finally finished.

I've got 1.25 "squares" done!  Wink
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / crochet cast on? on: January 13, 2007 08:31:13 AM
I'm unable to search to see if this has been posted (seach daemon is down, of course!), but can anyone tell me what a crochet cast on is?  I looked on knittinghelp, and she doesn't call any of her cast ons crochet.  Is there a different name for it?  I'm going to be trying socks for the first time ever.  I'm using knitty's Universal Sock Pattern.  I think this will be the best pattern for me because the boy has massive feet (unless anyone has a better suggestion!).

Thanks for your help!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Interesting Sweater Vest? on: January 07, 2007 08:28:32 AM
I've been searching on and off for a couple of months now for an interesting V-neck sweater vest pattern -- colorwork, cables, argyle, etc.  I just went through all the posts on discussion and questions and completed projects.  The problem is that I want something fitted that I can wear to work over another shirt.  I can find things I like, for example http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/ticuna/ticuna.html but I'm not sure I would know how to alter the neck. 

Basically, I'm looking for a fitted sweater vest knit on the round that would be interesting to knit.

Thankyou for your help!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / sampler afghan? on: December 29, 2006 06:24:32 AM
Does anyone have any good patterns for a sampler afghan?  Or even a good link for sample stitches  Huh (I know there was one on here a while back for dishcloths, but I can't find it!)?  I've hunted online and can only come up with a couple that use more than two different stitch patterns.
