2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Noro scarf help on: October 13, 2008 12:55:46 PM
I have no idea how to even begin this scarf. Is it double knit? How are the color changes done? I read something about carrying the yarn up the side, but that didn't make any sense to me either, is there a video out there?

This is the problem with teaching yourself to knit lol. The only way I know how to color change is this, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eW3mBMtx3HU&feature=related

Is that they way to do it, just keep weaving and then changing color as needed?

I searched around and hadn't found any new topics, only 100 days left. Has anyone heard anything lately if YH is doing another one?

Hmmm, where's the whole pattern? The k2 yo k2tog seems fairly straight forward, but if the cast on sts part is after that, one would assume it's later on in the knitting. Is it maybe a gusset? Totally confused.

Ohhhh, such a clever idea. But i can see sooo much going wrong with it. What if you're a super fast knitter, but in the uk like myself and your target is in the states, apo is slow...very slow. Or what if your target lives up the street from you. And you mail yours, and the target walks theirs down and places it in your mailbox. Some mail systems are stupid slow, and some are ridiculously quick. Giving some an advantage over others

I think that'd be super fun though for a local knitting group. Ooo I think I might bring this up at our next meetup. Thanks for this! Smiley

Woot, I started this. I was afraid of entrelac for a while. And I just couldn't figure it out, but eventually I got it with a serious sit down with the gartelac dishcloth.

Here it is, I think i'm gonna tackle eleanor next since my scarf style finally came in the mail.

I ran into a little issue with it and i'm not sure how to fix it. I don't know if ya'll had the problem but i've got these little gaps where i'm knitting into the picked up stiches. I don't think any non knitter would reeeally notice, but they're annoying the hell out of me and I need to figure out why before I blow all that money on yarn for eleanor.

You can see it here

Any ideas?

I don't want to threadjack, but I also don't want to make a whole new thread about it.

But just a quick question. Did any of ya'll order the front flap bag yet? I was just hoping someone had pictures of the inside so I knew if I could put some yarn and a project in there and if there were spots I could put some needles into and not just an open space. There's no pictures of the inside  Sad

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: The Stereotypical Knitter on: December 19, 2007 12:22:55 PM
lol I have to admit after reading this I kinda giggled to myself. I agree it's a bad stereotype though. Most of my friends I know that knit won't knit in public just because they don't want to be ostracized. I could careless what people think, I do it at work, in meetings, in a traffic jam, at the movies, etc.

Then again, if someone says something I kinda had it coming, i'm a big black skater guy sitting there listening to heavy metal and knitting...They never saw it coming.  I like to think that deep down inside though i'm changing peoples opinions on knitting.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Attention all MALE KNITTERS!! (and any1 knitting for men) on: June 26, 2007 10:32:32 PM
WOOOO Finally!!

Though...I have to say i'm slightly skeptical. 150 pages of scarves and sweaters...I'm not sure what else i'd knit, I lack the creativity (*see motivation*) to knit something more. Though if in any book there was nearly the range of knit things as for women, i'd buy it. Though, I have to admit, it'll be nice to knit more for me and not for my lady friends.
