11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What to do with 3 sks of Kureyon other than a Booga Bag? on: August 29, 2006 03:25:35 PM
I have 3 sks of Kureyon that I got on sale at my LYS.  They were the last 3 or I would have gotton more.  I'm thinking something felted as I don't particularly care for the feel of it against my skin.

Any suggestions?
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / A faster pair of socks? on: August 29, 2006 12:39:21 PM
Anyone know of any sock patterns that aren't knit on size 0-4 needles?  Something maybe in a 5 or 6?  I'm looking through my books but everything seems to be for smaller needles.  I'm not ready to invest that kind of time at the moment.  =)
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Addi vs Inox Express Circs? on: August 27, 2006 03:05:23 PM
Just wondering if anyone's tried the Inox Express and how they compare to the Addi Turbos?  I love my Addi's, but wish the tips were pointier.  I'm considering the knitpicks ones but thought I'd ask around about Inox first.

I'm not sure if these have been posted.  They are gorgeous and look relatively simple to knit.  But, I have no idea how to go about making up a pattern for it....  anyone want to help?  =)  Thanks!

Details:  95% Polyamide and 5% Polyester. Use USA size 15 knitting needles. 

I bought 4 skeins of it with no particular project in mind.  =)

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with Gauntlet Pattern @ Straw.com on: July 25, 2006 02:23:57 PM

Does anyone have any idea how to make these so that they stay in place - like something for the thumb?  I dunno if I should make a hole or pick up stitches inside the ribbed area around the hand and make a divider for the thumb.

Does that even make sense?  Cheesy
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Bipolar Knitters? on: July 19, 2006 12:40:15 AM
I have seen ADD knitting talked about here, but any Bipolar knitters?  Anyone else fall in love with a pattern, start a huge project, get so far into it that it would break your heart to rip it out, then hate it with a passion and not want to finish? 

I have several projects like this.  I can't bear to rip them out, but honestly, I don't know if I'll ever pick them up and work on them again because I want to scream when I think about them.

If anyone else is like this, what do you do in order to bring yourself back to a point where you can work on your project again?

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / cascade luna yarn - anyone used this? on: July 13, 2006 01:16:11 PM
I'm wondering how it is to work with and what people have made with it. 

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a pattern for wristwarmers to match a scarf on: July 12, 2006 11:42:20 AM
I'm working on this scarf - called Fanned Rib Scarf from Knit Ponchos, Wraps & Scarves....  I posted a crappy photo below.  Basically, I'm looking for something that flares or ruffles a bit at the hand part, but still has a thumb hole.... 

Actually, perhaps something similar to Mrs. Beeton from knitty.... here:  http://www.knitty.com/issuewinter05/PATTmrsbeeton.html

but, I want them to be longer - and have a thumb hole. 

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance!!!
