1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / aargh- rose pattern? on: August 08, 2008 06:19:10 AM

I always seem to be asking for advice here, but never giving any back. Hopefully one day when I am a bit more experienced I can do the latter!
my question this time is does anyone know of a good rose pattern- am happy to pay obviously. I have Nicki Epstein's kniitted flower book and the ones in their are just not quite what I am after. I also want non-felted.  Basically want to make a bouquet of roses for my wedding day. Have seen what I am after here (well, something similar at least)http://www.theknitmonster.com/ourwedding-momspix001.JPG/ourwedding-momspix001-full;init:.JPG but there is no pattern. i have emailed the author of the blog too but not sure she will be writing up a  pattern. there must be something available online.. surely?

thank You!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / waterfall veil - help on: July 03, 2008 04:58:39 AM

I am wanting to knit this: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_5655813,00.html , but am stumped as to what yarn to use (I am in the UK). I tried knitting with a strand of laceweight mohair and a  strand of lacewight merino held together but I think I need to knit with smoother yarn as I just drove me crazy! It surely can't be bulky yarn becasue that would be heavy, wouldn't it? But then it is knit on 8mm needles. very confused  Huh

Does anyone have any ideas. If you knit this, what yarn would you use? (can't seem to find the yarn they used in teh pattern)

thanksso much!
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / flowers to sew on dress? UK on: April 29, 2008 05:47:57 AM
I am looking for some small flowers to sew onto my wedding dress - preferably blue or brown. But I am not sure what to look for (I know nothing about fabric etc). i've been looking on google for ages but only paper flowers keep coming up. I don't have anything very specific in mind, but obviously paper flowers are not suitable Smiley

so, any  ideas of where I should be looking/ what I should look up online? I am in the Uk but hoping anyone who is a keen crafter might have some ideas. Possibly satin, and about an inch wide? Nothing too heavy though as the dress is lacy.

thank you
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / knit flower stems on: April 15, 2008 12:58:22 AM
Hi there

I am planning to knit some roses for my bouquet (my wedding is only next year but want to start on everything)- I am still working on getting a pattern for them, but wondering how to do stems.. I'm thinking wire with i-cord knitted around it.
What would other knitters do. I wouldn't even know what kind of wire to get?

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Vogue lacy dress pattern help on: April 14, 2008 05:04:59 AM
Hi there

i have tried searching google but bit of a  difficult thing to search for. I am just reading through the pattern for the lacy dress in the spring/summer 07 Vogue Knitting magazine. Its quite a challenging pattern for me but I want to give it a go.
But there is something they do a lot in the pattern and I'm not sure what they mean.

for eg: in the 'bodice' part of the pattern for size small they say ' skip the 3rd space, then every 4th sp 5 times, then every 5th sp 12 times.'

I know this may not make sense out of context but hoping someone has come across this terminolgy before. By skip every 3rd SPAce, do they mean skip every 3rd ROW?

very confused  Huh
Is it something to do with a chart I should be looking at. there is a small chart to go with the lace pattern but I would rather just read the pattern - easier for me. even looking at the (v small) chart I can't see what they mean??

Thank you
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / sub for Karabella lace mohair on: April 04, 2008 03:35:33 AM

does anyone know of a sub for this wool. Its 61% mohair, 8% wool and 31% polyester and guage is 30 stitches per 4 inches on 2.75mm needles. yarndex description: Lace Mohair" by Karabella Yarns is crafted of 67% superkid mohair, 30% polyamidic fiber and 3% wool. "Lace Mohair" is a thin, fuzzy, laceweight yarn primarily used for shawls and delicate, lacy scarves. '

I would be using this on larger needles for lacy effect.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Muench touch me sub??(in UK) on: March 10, 2008 03:18:19 AM
Hi there

just got a copy of simply knitting mag and in it is a pattern for ear muffs that i just love. but the recommended wool is 8 a ball and as its two colours I'd need to. Feeling a  bit poor at the moment so would prefer to use something cheaper. Does anyone know of a  suitable sub. I am not sure of the gauge as my mag is at home but will check tonight.

this is all I could find about the wool:
Wonderful shimmery microfibre mixed with wool velvety chenille from Meunch Yarns. 72% Viscose and 28% New Wool

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help - 5 o clock hat pattern on: November 08, 2007 03:03:07 AM

I desperately want to make this hat but I am confused about the decreasing. i am so used to following patterns that are written out line by line Embarrassed . Is there a  way I can use stitch markers as well to try and keep up with where to decrease?
Also if the decrease rows are only every 4 rows. What would I do for row 5 and 6? I just can't figure it out. i did try work this out for myself but I'm so confused.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What patterns have you knitted more than once on: October 01, 2007 02:54:29 AM
Sure this has been asked before , but what patterns did you love so much you knitted them more than once.

I think this one will come up a lot, but I knitted clapotis 3 times (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTclapotis.html. One for me one for my mom. I have done 'one skein wonder twice. http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id97.html.
I know there are more but need to look through my pattern book to remember. I have made a few feather and fan lace scarves as gits.. thats more a stitch pattern though I guess
