1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / thoughts on a unique ball of yarn? on: May 10, 2009 05:44:14 PM

 i got some really nifty hand-knotted yarn at a craft fair and i don't know what to do with it. It's composed of pieces of lace and ribbon and skinny yarn and fat yarn all tied togeter, making the gauge random. There's not a super lot of it, so the project would have to be on the small side. I'm sure there's something out there that would inspire me to use this unique ball of yarn, just need some help locating it. any thoughts?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / little red riding hoodie? on: February 13, 2007 03:59:43 PM
Hey there,

Has anyone knit "little red riding hoodie," from the Domiknitrix book?  I'm seriously considering knitting it and even went yarn browsing today. Just wanted to test the waters before I took a plunge and bought a bunch of yarn.  I'd love to hear how other people's sweaters turned out, problems with the pattern or yarn substitution ideas!

3  California / California: North / spinning classes in the SF Bay Area on: January 22, 2007 07:05:36 PM

I am a knitter in Oakland Ca. Looking for a spinning class.  Any Bay Area spinners have any recommendations? I'm willing to commute, so the class could be in the surrounding area (not necessarily in Oakland, just somewhere sort of nearby.)  Any help/ advice would be much appreciated!

4  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Fluffy bunny assistance for a mega newbie! on: October 28, 2006 05:08:48 PM
Okay, so I'm having a little trouble conceptualizing what I am doing when I start these slippers.  I'm on the first step.  It says "sl st to first sc to join."  I'm not clear here.  This is my first crochet project.  Am I essentially making a bar that I am going to go around and around?  Or does join mean make a donut out of my bar?  Sorry, I know I am being uber confusing, but I gotta have these bunnies.  I'm determined!  

Thanks for any help! --Liz
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / The Mariah knotwork blues. on: September 08, 2006 10:22:31 PM
All right.  So I'm making a GIANT attempt at Mariah from knitty right now.  I've frogged more wonky knotwork than I can shake a stick at.  My problem is that the raised part of the knotwork pattern in chart c refuses to raise.  I'm wondering if this is usually a problem with tension, or if I keep making some stupid error.  Anyone knit this sweater and run into this problem?

I'm starting to wonder if I should just continue the chart b alternating cables up the sleeve and scrap the whole celtic design.  Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance for help/moral support.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help needed regarding weird increase! Oh, boy. on: September 07, 2006 07:31:21 PM
I'm making my first attempt at a sweater and I've run into some trouble deciphering the pattern.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  

I'm working on the first sleeve and the chart (chart c) has two blank spaces and then a mysterious increase.  The Blank spaces are supposed to indicate "no stitch; adjacent increase sts will create a new st to fill this space in the next row."  

Firstly, does this mean that I am supposed to slide the two unknit stitches from the left needle to the right?  Without knitting them?

My second question has to do with the increase that comes after the two blank spaces on the chart. It says, "[k1 tbl, k1] in st, insert left needle behind vertical strand between the two new stitches, k this, makes two new stitches."

Does this mean that I pick up a stitch from between the stitches, after sliding those two unknit stitches to the right needle?  What type of increase do I use?

Okay, so I know that this is a lot to ask of anybody. But, I'm so freaking confused. I really appreciate the help.  A LOT.  Thanks in advance!

Also the pattern is here:  

the first row of chart C is the doosie.  Thanks again!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cheeseburgers and knitting. on: July 07, 2006 11:22:46 PM
Lord only knows why, but I'd really like to knit a stuffed cheeseburger.  Anyone know of a good pattern or link? It would please me to no end!
