1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help with Illusion knitting sock: Cuff down on: March 08, 2013 02:43:17 AM
Got it sorted on Ravelry.
Anyone who wants to knit these cuff down. You don't have to change the order of the rows. Just persevere.

 I was having a Skype convo with my sister in Italy yesterday and when I showed her the sock I was knitting, she said I dont know what youre complaining about I can see the tail just fine. When I looked into the little video box of myself, she was right! Lol. I guess its just one of those, had it too close to my face knitting optical illusions. Wink

I'm knitting these socks off Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/wonderland-socks
They are toe up in the pattern, however I'm knitting them cuff down instead. I've flipped the chart vertically, but I don't know if I have to change the lines of the chart.
Each chart row has 4 rows to it:
Round 1: (CC) knit one round plain
Round 2: (CC) knit the blank boxes, purl the filled in ones
Round 3: (MC) knit one round plain
Round 4: (MC) purl the blank boxes, knit the filled in ones

I'm knitting it this way, but when I tip the cuff towards me I can see the pattern quite clearly, and when I tip it down (as if wearing it) it's not as obvious. I have knitted to chart row 5 and I don't want to continue if I've made a mistake and then end up having to frog loads, if I'm doing it wrong.
I'd take a picture, but it's hard to tell.
Any help would be great.

I like your's it's adorable.

Most people's reaction to mine is "ahhh cute is that a little hippo? Hang on a sec..... ewwwwwwhh its's got too many legs, wot-is-it?"
Personally I think she's cute.

This is Isbella the little pink bedbug, that I found on my bed.

He's lovely, I made one of the bedbugs, without the hat. Easy project to pick up and put down. Love the fact that ur Moose is Purple. Now u've got the techinque, u could move onto socks, or just about anything. Smiley

Yours is gorgeous it's a lovely colour, I've looked at that pattern, quite a few times, but I haven't found the right colour/yarn to make it for myself.

Is yours red? Cos the pic makes it look a bit raspberry coloured.

I've been really busy at work and just logged in, wow 625 peeps have looked at this, THANX EVERYONE. Grin

The yarn I used was Reflections Creative Collection, its a acrylic, mohair.. so its quite fluffy and knits up gorgeous, it says on the ball band that its dk/8ply, even though when knitting it, it looks and feels like 4ply/fingering weight. The mohair fills in the gaps.. if u know what I mean. I used size 5mm/US 8 circ needles. 100g with 500m, Yep I said 500m
so plenty for any size shawl.
This is another one I did back in June this yr - non-blocked. leaf and flower bu Linda Choo.
Silver Birch Leaf Shawl

You can also buy it with a metallic thread running thru it as well, for a bit of added sparkle, which is on my to do list.
Thanx again for lookin Smiley

Labour of love... well done to keep going, I've had the same issue when charting things in the past, they always look huge...!! I've even changed the yarn thickness from DK/8PLY to 4ply/fingering weight.. and then its  too small and the definition is lost.... Roll Eyes

I did a post a little while back, which is on page 3/4 now.. flame cowl... and brimmer hat..!! Lots of people looked at them.. but I didn't get any comments.. maybe it was something I said in the post that offended them...? Embarrassed

Found this on Raverly,  pattern is Wings of Peace by Anna Baltzer.

I was very lucky with how the colours came off the ball. Grin

Just need to figure out how to make the feathers longer. Any suggestions? Huh

Comments welcome Smiley
