3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Fall09 Knitty - - what strikes your fancy? on: September 14, 2009 09:50:13 AM
I liked the cover pattern, but more as a blanket or throw than a wrap.  I also like Renaissance.  I love Hydrangea too, and I'm curious about the Hat Heel socks.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Short row mania! on: August 13, 2009 12:34:25 AM
fun with short rows!

This is basically Veronik Avery's short row hat rotated 90 degrees and joined to be knit in the round. I used good old w&t for my short rows - much easier to read. (I tried and failed to knit that one about 15 months ago --  too much toddler interference.)

not sure if the images will post. links to flickr below.

Needle size should not matter so long as it is appropriate for the yarn you're using.  Size 8 should be a worsted weight or aran weight yarn. 
Make sure your edges aren't rolling up obscuring the area with the stitch pattern.
Do a couple repeats across (maybe with a P2, K1, P2 panel in between) and a couple repeats (or more) up.

Knit Simple from sometime last spring had some I-cord patterns.  One I thought was a neat idea was kind of a curtain dealie.  Bunch of I-cords in various lengths and several nicely contrasting colors.  Tassels on the end.  Not sure how all the individual cords were connected (wasn't shown in the pic). Looked pretty nice, I thought.

Oh - another interesting one was a bag that was knitted from I-cord.  Would take huge needles, and, if you're using the spool b/c you don't knit with needles, I don't think it would work for you.  But the bag looked nice, and would probably be sturdier than most knitted bags.

Fern and Faerie has a pretty easy one that is free.  You basically knit a rectangle for waistband + an inch or two, then decrease down to a point.  Fold the two sides of the recangle together so that the edge is front and center, then fold the point of the triangle up to the seamed edge of the rectangular part.  Sew part-way down, leave holes for the legs.  Knit cuffs as desired (knit flat then seam them up as well.

DPN's/circs make soaker knitting really fun though; I'd definitely try to find some short circs and a set of DPNs for the weight of wool you like to use.  (I like 3.5mm - 4mm in 16" + DPNs.  Magic loop would be doable with 36" I think.)

I definitely do not have answers for you, but I wanted to commiserate anyway.  I hate buttons!!

go for an LED or several... not light bulbs.  No messy melting or shrinking.

Funny though.. instead of washing and blocking a guage swatch, you could wash and microwave it to see how it held up.
