1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Gorgeous knits by Sandra Backlund on: April 13, 2007 12:51:38 PM
(apologies if there's already a thread on this--I checked and didn't see one)

Just ran across this website--so gorgeous! I wouldn't even know where to begin if I want to reproduce this sort of thing

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / stella mccartney sweater dress--any patterns? on: March 13, 2007 10:14:56 AM
I love this:


but have never seen anything even close pattern wise. Anyone ever made something like that and care to share their pattern source?

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / cape pattern for slightly-less-cold weather on: February 21, 2007 07:11:38 AM
I fell in love with this cape and would love to make something like it (only knitted!) for when the weather warms up

There was a cape pattern in this month's knit1 but it was kinda boxy...does anyone know of a pattern that's slightly more interesting--maybe with cables or a hood? It should also have the slits for your hands to go through, if possible.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Anyone have a pattern for a knitted heart? on: February 02, 2007 09:46:31 AM
I want to knit something heart shaped for valentines day but I'm not knit-wise enough to make up my own pattern. As much as I would love to make knit1's actual heart, I don't have the time. Does anyone have a quick pattern for knitting hearts?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Seeking pattern help - what on earth are they talking about?! on: January 16, 2007 12:54:39 PM
So...I've been chugging along on Starsky http://www.knitty.com/issuewinter05/PATTstarsky.html  (which is the first sweater I have done....ever, really. Aside from very very very basic ones) and I got to this portion for the R front

(34 stitches on the needle, working in cable pattern)

Shape Neckline:
Next Row [RS]: K2, ssk, work in patt as set to end. Mark work with a safety pin at the beginning of this row.
Work 7[3, 3, 3, 3] rows in patt as set, maintaining 3 sts at neckline edge in stockinette st.
Repeat these 8[4, 4, 4, 4] rows 3[7, 8, 10, 13] times more.
AT THE SAME TIME: When work measures 15[15.75, 16.25, 16.5, 16.5] inches, ending with a RS row, shape armhole as follows:
Next Row [WS]: BO 3[3, 5, 5, 8] sts, work in patt as set to end.

Okay, you lost me at 2 sts--do I keep SSK every other row? How does 6 stitches become 3 in 7 rows? This makes absolutely no sense to me at all--HELP! I know it's supposed to be worked from both sides but it's so confusing. I'm going cross eyed from staring at that thing.
6  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / Safety eyes for knitted toys--where to find in NYC? on: December 06, 2006 01:27:19 PM
I'm in the process of knitting Kate (from Knitty, of course  Wink) and wanted to get the little black safety eyes jess hutch uses. They cost $.49 on the website she links to, but they charge $6 in S&H!! Does anyone know of a store that sells that sort of thing?
