1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Counting rows. on: April 15, 2007 03:02:25 AM
I'm knitting something in stocking stitch and lost count of the row I'm on. My ridiculously simple question - If I am counting the rows knit thus far, do I count the stitches on the needle as a row? i.e, if I need to knit 18 rows and I have 17 below the needles and one row on the needles, am I done? I have a feeling it is, but I'm confused after a cabling mishap that left one a little scrunched.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sisterly mittens [fair isle fauxgyle] on: February 11, 2007 02:25:39 AM
They're not up to my usual standard of impeccable perfectionism [ahem] but they fit. So. There.

I made these minimittens as a present for my sister's birthday, with a bright future of keeping her hands warm while she reads.

Not the most precise of items, but they fit on hands, so I feel justified.

Slightly more words and 50% more pictures in blogland.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / "Casein Timbergrain" needles on: January 26, 2007 07:57:46 PM
"Made of casein, the protein found in cow's milk, these double pointed needles are made in Australia. Timbergrain knitting needles have the perfect blend of flexibility and rigidity to create a firm, comfortable needle that allows smooth effortless knitting."

I've been wondering about these for socks. I've only ever used metal or plastic DPNS, but I've been looking at bamboo needles for niceness to hands and they're two or three times the price. These casein DPNs are about the same price as metal, but they look really bendy. I'm harsh on needles, so this worries me.

Any testimonials?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitty's Twinkletoes [slippers] on: January 16, 2007 05:44:40 AM
There are no words for how much I loved knitting this pattern. They were a gift, but I'll be repeating the gift for myself as soon as possible. You should always be generous to the deserving. Like myself.

I have a few more pictures and talkaboutit in blogland.
