i have a question about the chart...is it all done in knit....no purling i mean, just knit...sorry newbie here.

The Bat symbol is knitted in stockinette, so you would knit one row and then purl the next row. Does that make sense?
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Elann Peruvian Pure Alpaca - Anyone used this? on: September 23, 2007 12:38:06 AM
I just used it! I loved it. A teensy bit splitty, but not too bad. But, I definitely feel like I paid a good price for what I got.

Also, HOLY MOLY does that yarn smell when it's wet! I've never made a big project in alpaca before, and the smell in my bathroom was amazing.

Your hat looks AWESOME! So much better than the original. Way to stick it to Banana Republic!
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: OH..kitties eating yarn on: September 20, 2007 10:42:41 AM
My cat will try to eat just about anything. Feathers from her feather toy, yarn, string, random pieces of paper she finds on the floor, the cord to my Mac's power adapter (!!!!!) ANYTHING.

But if I'm eating something and I offer it to her, even if she's clearly curious about it, she won't eat it. She'll just look at me like I'm nuts and then walk away.

I don't understand my cat. I love her dearly, but she's one psycho kitty.

Yikes!!! Keep an eye on your kitten, if he has diarrhea or if his poop looks black, take him to the vet ASAP and tell them what happened. I'm sure he's fine though!

Once my kitty found a piece of thread that I left on the floor, and decided to try to eat that. The thread wrapped around her tongue, and the rest was going back down into her stomach. After she spent all night throwing up and acting listless, I rushed her over to the vet. The vet snipped the thread and it passed through her digestion system, but if I'd waited any later she might have needed a $2,000 surgery to save her life. Ouch!

If you have pets, always clean up after yourself and keep your crafting supplies somewhere that your pet can't get to.

Oh no! My pattern hasn't arrived yet so I can't see what you're talking about  Embarrassed
Maybe try e-mailing Ysolda?

I'm sure that I'll fall in love with Mr. Greenjeans once I start seeing some FO's. It does look really pretty and would be totally flattering on me. I would most definitely NOT knit it in a variegated yarn though. I would probably go for a bold solid color, like a deep brick red or a vibrant olive green. And it would need the right pretty button.

I look for combination of things when I pick out patterns. I want it to be interesting to knit, something a little challenging so I get to learn something new, and it should be functional and flattering but not so generic that I'll see it at Forever 21 next week.

I'll join you! I just ordered this pattern. I'll be knitting it in Cascade 220 in a cranberry red.

I love the lattice cables on this hat, and slouchy hats are totally for the win!

I do have to say though, the one group of people I cut some slack for are are service employees. If I'm at a restaurant and the waiter asks me about my knitting, I usually assume that they're just trying to do their job well and I'll happily answer any questions they have.

And a server has never done the "So when's the baby due?!" line at me. Usually when it happens, it's an obnoxious older man with a bad sense of humor.
