very pretty! this is one of the nicer knitted skirts I've seen. I can see how time consuming it must've been...those stitches are TINY!  Shocked

what do you think of the knit cafe book? is it worth buying?

blue sky alpacas has a cute mini-skirt pattern...
I haven't knit it myself, so I can't really say anything about the pattern, but Wendy has! and it looks great!

wow, I love the patterns in this book. I saw some of her yarns listed in the patternworks catalogue too, and was surprised at how nice and cheap the Mohair was  Smiley $6 for like 310 yards! no stitch gauge listed or anything, though, which was kind of disappointing, but in the pattern yarn requirements it said the yarn was held double stranded. patterns for the cruise were held, like, quadruple stranded to get that big chunky effect.

your cardigan is beautiful. I started the same pattern a few months ago but kind of lost steam on it, afraid it would turn out frumpy. Seeing yours makes me want to finish it!

really cool. robbie-bear looks fetching  Smiley did you write the pattern yourself?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: i thought i followed the pattern! what did i do wrong?? on: February 03, 2007 07:46:15 PM
"Swatching" is when you cast on a small amount of stitches (usually the pattern will tell you how many, but otherwise its around 20-30 depending on how thick your yarn is) and then knit in the pattern stitch until you have a small square. Then, measure out four inches across and count the number of stitches going across (your stitch gauge) and then measure out four inches vertically and count the number of stitches going up (your row gauge). This will give you the, for example, 18 st per 24 rows=4" in stockinette stitch (or whatever numbers and whatever stitch pattern the pattern gives you).

Here's a link from knitty to explain it better, since knitty always explains everything better.

P.S: ha I just noticed your screen name; my English class recently finished a project on utopias and one of the groups named their island BAMFi.

haha I love the pictures! knittinfiasco is right, this seems like a gauge problem to me--you followed the pattern exactly right, but the weight yarn/needle size you used might not have matched the specified gauge (# of stitches per inch) in the pattern.  don't worry, it happens to everyone Smiley to prevent this, always knit and measure a swatch before you cast on for the actual project--kind of a pain, but worth it.

Wow, this is really amazing! I've never seen anything like it knit before. I love the vintage fit, it's perfect.
