1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Are there any ballerina's out there? on: September 19, 2005 09:11:38 PM
Hope this isnt too off the wall but....
I work part time in my landladys dance wear shop. Not only do I get to see all sorts of legwarmers and things that make me want to knit more...there is this wool that we sell for pointe dancers to put in their shoes, it seems to be unbleached (?) cleaned and carded wool. Since I get anything in the store at cost I am always really tempted to snatch some and try out felting it. before I did though, I wanted to see if any of you have used this sort of wool for felting...

oh yeah, and I can dye it and then felt it with no conflict between the two, right?

i feel like such a noob.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / ssk and k2tog ? ? ? on: June 04, 2005 10:47:42 PM
Im not sure if I am over-looking something, maybe its just late and i should go to sleep rather than try to put together a new project, but I have to ask you crafty craftsters out there to help me understand something....

what is the difference between a ssk and a k2tog?

forgive me ahead of time if this is the stupidest of all stupid knitting questions.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / stitch pattern in the round on: May 19, 2005 09:55:21 PM
so I found a stitch pattern that i really like....

to make this stitch work for in the round I have to invert the pattern for every other row....right?

heres to timid knitting and having to ask you craftsters out there for help constantly.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Intarsia project question on: May 17, 2005 06:05:29 PM
I have never done Intarsia before but I think I have a very good grasp on how to do it, I just wanted to see if there were any problems with the project I am wanting to start....let me know if I am looking at this the wrong way or if there is some inherent flaw that I am unaware of.

I want to knit then felt a bag, rather large (not huge though), with Noro Kureyon. Its a pretty simple design, knit in the round, basically a bag version of the Rosedale United from knitty (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTrosedaleunited.html).

I guess the only question I have is would I carry the main color along behind the intarsia and then clean it up after (before felting) with a few scissor snips and weaving in ends?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cross hatch stitch? I dont know what its called... on: March 12, 2005 04:20:14 PM
Alright, I cant seem to find this stich anywhere, and I dont know what its called
I think i orginially found it here :


but its not a free pattern anymore. I dont want the pattern, just the stiitch.
Anyone farmiliar with it? Someone help me out.

I put off writting down the stitch until i got my yarn, now I have it and no stitch.

this blows.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / ideas for not so much yarn on: April 29, 2004 11:51:07 PM
Ive been hitting up the thrift shops lately and its wonderful how much unique yarn I am finding, only problem is there isnt much of each kind I find, I am at a loss for what to do with smaller amounts of yarn that will do this cool yarn justice. any ideas for smaller stuff?
