1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Very Manly Sweater on: May 12, 2004 07:41:33 PM
Well, that works!  Thanks Smiley  Now I can get started on it...I'm a couple of inches in now.
2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Very Manly Sweater on: May 10, 2004 06:23:17 PM
I'm starting the Manly Sweater in the SNB book for my boyfriend (I know, the curse), and I'm not sure that I'm getting the rib instructions right.

It says:

"Set-up row: K3, p1, *k5, p1; rep from * to last 3 sts, k3. Work in k5, p1 rib as set fo 16.5 inches."

I have cast on 97 stitches, as per the instructions, and if I'm figuring it out correctly simplying knitting k5, p1 across each row won't match up the pattern for the rib.  So do I do the set row, then a reverse of that (k3, *p1, k5; rep from * to last 4 sts, p1, k3), alternating the rows?

I'm so confused!  I've done simply k2, p2 rib, but nothing more complicated than that.  Help?

Not really.  Flare is just a typical women's magazine, only Canadian.  Make-up, clothes, beauty, etc.  They don't have really interesting fashion tips like Lucky or good writing like Elle, so I don't recommend it usually.

If you want to try it out though, and you're a Rogers customer for TV, Internet or wireless, you can get a really cheap subscription (Rogers owns Flare).  Try www.rogers.com.

I'd love to support a Canadian mag since I think the industry needs it, but I'd rather support a good one Wink  So if you're interested in a Canadian mag, try Toro!  Great stories and cool art direction.

I'm in London too Smiley  I just finished school...I should be around for a few more months.

There's a small yarn store at Richmond and Oxford called Needles & Pins...has anyone checked it out?  It's never open when I walk by.  I haven't been to many other stores -- just Lewiscraft in Westmount and Masonville, Michael's in the north end of the city and Wal Mart and Zellers.  I need to get out to Value Village soon and see what I can get my hands on.

I'd love a London Stitch and Bitch.  That would be so much fun!

Between your robots and the felt monsters, I could plotz.  So much cute.

I would pay money for one of those robots.

The fact that they're made from old cords makes them even better, I think.  What's softer than old cords?

Your monsters (and bunny!) are fabulous.  I agree with the others -- you could definitely sell those, online or maybe in local shops.  They look really professional, and have tons of character.

I'm looking forward to the tutorial you've so nicely offered to put up Smiley  I want monsters!

You may have already said, but did you sew them with a sewing machine or by hand?

I'm working on my own kitty cozy for my phone now.  It's grey yarn, and I'm trying to make it so that I can still use my phone when it's on.

I have one side finished, so hopefully it'll be done soon.  I want a kitty phone!
