1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is the name of that non-stretchy stitch....? on: November 21, 2007 07:30:51 PM
Thanks to those who replied...it's actually a skirt I'm thinking of, rather than a bag strap. Is the linen stitch the same as the fabric stitch?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What is the name of that non-stretchy stitch....? on: November 20, 2007 07:52:20 PM
I did do a search. A non-stretchy (or only slightly stretchy) knitted stitch which I seem to recall someone suggested using for the strap of a bag.

What's it called? And has anyone every tried using it for a skirt (=avoiding saggy seat issues)?

That looks really, really nice, and it is such a beautiful fit as well!
I'm tempted to try out a similar idea on a scarf or something.

I have this really strong belief that with any kind of hobby or pastime, you should really avoid "pushing" yourself to do it when you are reluctant for any reason (unless it's something temporary like getting though a patch of boring stocking stitch on a pattern), because your mind will just start to categorize the activity as a chore, and you will feel less and less motivated. Why not just give yourself a real break? Before you know, you'll be wanting to do it again.

And as for the presents? Is there a particular reason why you have to give these as Xmas presents this year? If not, maybe you could just shelve them and finish them for next year, or as birthday presents later on. I don't think it's worth spoiling an enjoyable hobby for.

Wow, I normally don't like variegated yarn at all, but that is lovely. I think it is something about the way the panel thing in the middle contrasts with the outside edges.

With second-hand yarn, you could make it for next to nothing, I should think.

By the way, it's cute but isn't it kind of bulky? (ponders how it would look on a real body....)

Great sweater, great shawl. I really must make one of those simple knitted bodices.

Aw, bless! I can't imagine making a toy pattern from scratch...

Oh no, it must be so sad to frog after all your hard work! It looks really beautifully finished laid out like that, but yes, I think the fit just isn't quite there, so I'm not going to advise you not to frog...there is just no point having garments you aren't quite happy with taking up space in your wardrobe.
