1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Vogue Hoodie! on: September 19, 2007 06:54:23 PM
I'm so proud of myself for knitting this. I usually wait until I see at least a few FO's around the internet before I commit to a project, but I just dove into this.  It's actually the only FO from the anniversary issue that I've seen around.
This took me between 3 and 4 weeks to knit.  It's Berrocco Ultra Alpaca, which was lovely to work with, but still smells from blocking.  Any ideas how to fix that?

This one is kind of blurry, but it shows the hood!

I knit this last night using 4 or 5 different patterns for reference.  Misti Alpaca Chunky is soooo soft!

Please excuse the unblocked knitting and my face.

So I am knitting the Hoodie Sweater from the new VK, and I'm having a little trouble with the instructions for the neck and shoulder shaping...

Bind off 8 sts at beg of next 4 rows, then 7 sts at beg of next 2 rows, AT SAME TIME, bind off center 37 sts.

When do I bind off the center sts?  Obviously, at the same time as something...but does it mean just bind them off on the last row?

They are, of course, the same length. One just got pulled up higher Smiley
I actually used the recommended yarn...not even on purpose! Soft touch ultra is a dream to work with.  I made a mistake and used the wrong chart for the foot of the first sock, and it looks funny off the foot, but I don't think you can tell when it's on!!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Setting in sleeves on: April 11, 2007 05:29:21 PM
Does anyone have any tips for setting in sleeves or a website that could help?  I googled it and didn't really find anything.  Should it be this intimidating??
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Vintage Knits Jolie Question! on: April 09, 2007 07:45:23 PM
In the chart it doesn't specify which way to slip, so I assumed it meant purlwise on all rows, but that just made it all bunched up.  Has anyone knit this before?  Is it slip k-wise all the time? Or slip k-wise on knit rows and p-wise on on purl rows?  Or the opposite?  Ack.  I feel stupid .  Embarrassed
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fully Fashioned? on: April 08, 2007 06:27:01 PM
I'm looking through some patterns and I came across alternate fully fashioned instructions.  Can anyone tell me what this means?  Thanks Smiley

Is anyone knitting this? I started it today in Elsebeth Lavold cable cotton.

So, I'm knitting an afghan from an really old pattern, and it's done in three panels.  The first panel went fine, but now that I'm on the middle panel, I can't figure it out!  The first row goes like this...
P1, k1b, p4, (s1b, k1b, pss)twice, (s1f, p1, kssb)twice, p4, k1b, p1.

There's a note in the pattern that says pss means purl slipped stitch.  Can anyone explain how I slip a stitch, knit a stitch, then purl the first stitch?  I don't get it!!!
