1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitty's "Fetching" - Picot Bind-off help? on: October 07, 2006 02:03:32 PM
Thanks - I just cast another glove onto the needles this afternoon, now I can attempt to do things right.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitty's "Fetching" - Picot Bind-off help? on: October 07, 2006 08:31:02 AM
I'm really not much for common sense - I can see how it's supposed to look, but I'm not entirely sure how to execute it.  This is what the pattern says for the bind off:

"BO 5 sts, [slip st on right needle back to left needle; CO 1 st using Cable Cast On method, BO 6 sts] until all sts have been bound off, slip st on right needle back to left needle; CO 1 st using Cable Cast On method, BO remaining st."

Do I just repeat the part in the brackets, so that I would first bind off five, make the picot, then bind off six each time after that?   Huh  My tester pair of fetchings were so off on the picot, it's sad.

I think they would be good as accents to bolder beads...but as they are, you could improve the necklace by making it a bit shorter - between what you have now and choker-length would be cool.

He's an older model robot, a little beat up.  I think he was pretty lonely until someone made a little teddy bear to keep him company.

Whipping up the bot was fun, definitely challenging.  It was the first time I'd worked with a felt object that was to come out more than two inches tall, so making sure he could stand up was a learning experience.

You can see the love in his eyes. Smiley

I was sort of inspired by a t-shirt I saw somewhere with a picture of a bear carrying around a stuffed boy as a toy, complete with button eyes.   I thought my robot seemed like he needed something to love.

I'm pretty sure that you just C4F for the left hand and C4B for the right...no switching within the actual piece.  Is that what you mean?

That was me!! Yay, that looks fantastic!  That's got to be my favorite game of all time, I love Manny Calavera. I'm so glad you made it!

Those birds are *adorable*!  This is my first time venturing into the embroidery section, I've only recently considered taking it up.  You're giving me courage!

Just a few weeks ago I wondered if I was ever be skilled enough to knit this, but I finished my trial pair Wednesday!  First time with dpns, picot (as you can tell, the picot made no sense to me at the time) and cable cast-on.  I'm pretty pleased.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Applique advice needed on: September 29, 2006 06:11:01 PM
I think if you used really small stitches it would do the trick - on Knitty Gritty yesterday they did a pillow for which the designer actually put fusable webbing on the back of a knitted panel (for stability) and sewed over the design with tiny zig-zag stitches, then cut it out -  and it stayed perfectly.  If she could get that to work, I'm sure that small zig-zag stitches would hold an applique onto a knitted piece with no problem.
