1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / cable question on: August 31, 2008 07:13:20 PM
ok, i am having a duh moment right now.  i am starting a basic cabled hat.  there are cables all around the hat.  do i need a cable needle/hook for every cable? i have only done singe cable projects up to this point.  it just seems like the wip is getting awkward to maneuver.  any help would be appreciated.

ok so this is about the 3rd scarf i have made that curls terribly.  the first two were stockinnette when i didnt know better. the newest one is a beautiful cable scarf.  its chunky yarn, so i just did a main cable surrounded by purl stitches w a stockinette border.  i thought it would be fine because the main part is the purl stitch.  apparently its not.  i blocked it and it started off fine.  then after a day or so of being dry it started curling around the cable.  is there anything i can do to fix it? it was intended for an xmas gift, but it probably will just be another scarf for me if this cant be fixed...

5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / 2nd batch of lip balm and some cuticle butter on: July 14, 2007 07:29:38 PM
so i tweeked the recipe for me lip balm to make it a bit softer.  i added some more sweet almond oil and a few drops of vitamin e oil.
for the cuticle butter i used 1 oz beeswax 1 oz cocoa butter and about 2 oz sweet almond oil and some vitamin e oil.  it really came out well! nice and soft and not too oily.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / question about discontinued yarns... on: November 07, 2006 05:12:52 PM
i have started a scarf for my grandma with yarn she bought a long time ago.  it is mohair and i am doing a simple lace pattern.  well, i think i made it too wide and im not sure if i will have enough to finish the lenght i want.  i have not been able to find anything close to the yarn.  of course its red, so its super hard to match.  the yarn is from the nomis company.  if anybody knows of some site that i might be able to go to, i would appreciate it.  i may have to frog it and start over, but its mohair so its super annoying to unravel.  any help or advice would be appreciated greatly
