1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / question about urchin hat.. on: January 29, 2009 12:51:35 AM
so i decided i'd give knitting a second chance.. (in the past i've only ever done the most basic hats and scarves) and started making an urchin hat from knitty yesterday. so i got to the end of the first wedge and got a little confused by what the pattern meant in the 6th, 7th, and 8th row because it doesn't seem to follow with how it looks in the picture... so here's the part of the pattern..

"There are 5 wrapped sts on the wider side of the wedge; this edge will form part of the hat brim. There are 8[9, 10] wrapped sts on the narrower side of the wedge.

Row 6 [WS]: K to end.

Row 7 [RS]: K all sts.

Row 8 [WS]: Sl 1, k to end."

sooo i already knitted what i thought it meant so ill just tell you what i did and you can tell me if i'm wrong...
so after row #5 there are about 5 or 6 (i forget exactly how many now but i think its irrelevant at this point) sts that are in the row that are not wrapped sts, and then on one side of those there are 9 wrapped sts and 5 wrapped sts on the other. so in row 6 i knitted all the way to the end of the needle including the wrapped sts. then for row 7 knitted all the way to the other end including all wrapped sts and same for row 8, except for the slip stitch at the end.

if i were to only reading it, it makes sense to me, so i guess the only reason i've been questioning myself was because in the picture it doesn't seem like that edge of the wedge has a whole 2 rows of knitting...

a little help would be greatly appreciated  Smiley thanks guys!
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Camp Pluckyfluff on: September 19, 2008 03:46:44 PM
so i'm signed up to go to Camp Pluckyfluff Seattle this weekend!
eek i'm so excited!  Grin

i was just wondering if anyone here is going to the Seattle one also? or who has gone to any of the other ones? i'm not really sure what to expect...

for all of you that don't know about it..Camp Pluckfluff is a 2 day "freestyle spinning workshop" with Lexi Boeger, the author of Intertwined.

i'll definitely be posting all the stuff i make at the workshop!
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / how can i make a large book? on: September 12, 2006 02:43:42 AM
well i had this great idea(i thought) to make a big book that i can keep all the printed out tutorials and ideas i have from craftster in so i can keep track of them all and make notes on modifying them if need be.

so Ive been reading a lot of tutorials on craftster on how to bind books, but by following those the biggest it could end up being is a half sheet of paper and i really was envisioning something quite larger.

sooo does anyone know how i can go about doing this? is it possible to bind whole sheets instead of half(with the pages still being able to lay down flat)? any suggestions on book binding in general are also appreciated since this will be the first one i make....

thanks  Cheesy
