1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / top down raglan, increasing arms only? on: December 26, 2007 07:34:57 PM
im doing wicked and was wondering if it would look funny to increase up to a large and increase only the sleeves for a few rounds cuz i have big arms....would this look weird?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / can someone whos done wicked help me! on: November 27, 2007 08:05:06 PM
i just cast the large on and did 132 sts.  i did the first row which is p2 k2 p2 crossover and repeat.  so im ending this first row and the last 6 sts are...

crossover, p2, k2

the row ends

and in the round the first 6 sts i did show up

p2 k2 p2 crossover.

X p2, k2/p2, k2, p2 X

that doesnt follow the pattern, im missing a crossover to make it right!  (yes i double checked to make sure i did the pattern right)  is it supposed to be like this?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / simple but dumb bind off question on: November 03, 2007 12:09:56 PM
when it says bind off two sine binding off takes 2 stitches does that mean i do the knit, knit then pass over once or twice?  should there be one stitch on my right needle or 2 when i bind off 2?
4  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Drops 103-1 Jacket knitalong on: November 01, 2007 08:34:21 PM

i TOTALLY want to knit this jacket.  u can knit it in worsted or bulky and 3/4 sleeves or long sleeves.  i see TONS of great jackets on ravelry (currently 121 projects!).  thing is, ive never knit an elizabeth zimmerman, drops or any patterns that aren't completely written out in ROW 1, ROW 2 form.  this is a MUCH more involved pattern that assumes u know how to knit.  im like an adv beginner.  also this would be my first seamed sweater...first anything bigger than a tank top really =T

i hear its easy but im having a hard time translating certain wording.  does anyone want to knit this with me, i will def need some support and id like to help anyone else!   i have the yarn and needles...and still have sizing and other issues.  any takers?! =)
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / best way to join cotton yarn in lacy piece? on: October 31, 2007 11:00:07 PM
would a russian join be too obvious (thicker) in a smooth cotton (rowan all seasons cotton)?  it works SO well with wool blends...or anything fuzzy but im not sure bout something with such an open stitch (knitting with 17's and purling with 10's)  what other joins would be good?  a tie on join would show like crazy and i cant even really weave it in!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / can someone help me decipher this row in my pattern? on: October 30, 2007 08:30:27 PM
Help!  can someone make sure i deciphered this correctly?

Row 24 (WS): P1 (1: 0: 2: 2), P2tog, *P1, (P2tog) twice, rep from * to last 5 (4: 4: 6: 5) sts, P1, P2tog, P2 (1: 1: 3: 2). 48 (50: 52: 56: 58) sts.

if im doing the medium...

p2tog *p1 p2tog, p2tog rep from* to last 4 sts p1 p2tog p1  = 52 sts

does this sound right?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / hole in thumb gusset on: October 02, 2007 07:20:26 PM
i am doing the peekaboo mittens from magknits and everything is going swimmingly.  i am up to the thumb gusset and if i follow instructions i see 2 holes on each side.  i tried picking up more stitches but they gape as well.  how do i minimize the appearance of/get rid of the holes!  this will be a gift and i want them to look presentable =T
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / having a problem understanding part of a pattern on: September 25, 2007 09:36:28 PM
i am working on the charming capelet that vogue gave out for free.  the side decrease wording makes no sense to me...if anyone can help me decipher this, id appreciate it.

Side shaping
Dec 1 st each side on next row, then every 4th
row 6 times more69 sts. Work even until
piece measures 14"/35.5cm from beg. Dec 1
st each side every other row 13 times43 sts.
Bind off 3 sts at beg of next 4 rows, 4 sts at
beg of next 4 rows. Bind off rem 15 sts.

my questions: 

decrease where?  just like k2tog or p2tog on the first 2 stitches and last 2 stitches?? 

so this is how i deciphered it:

dec, 3 regular rows,
dec 3 regular rows,,
dec, 3 regular rows,,
dec 3 regular rows,,
dec 3 regular rows,
dec, 3 regular rows

then just work regular rows (no dec rows) until i get to 14 inches
k2tog or p2tog on both sides every OTHER row 13 times (so 26 more rows total)

i dont mean to confuse...im just a little confused.  does this sound right?  thanks in advance!
