11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Finished Noro scarf on: July 25, 2007 07:04:42 AM
That scarf is freaking gorgeous, and I don't just mean the colors. I'm wondering how you get i-cord (that's what I call it, when the knitting looks like you did it in the round as opposed to that diagonal garter stitch thing that pops up whenever I knit flat) when you knit flat?
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Why can't I crochet question. Bwaha. on: July 24, 2007 11:35:02 AM
Thanks for all the advice. After reading this thread, I went and picked up one of the new Boye hooks I got (not plastic, like my first crochet hook, but aluminum) and I think I'm crocheting! It looks good. I think I'll try a hat or something.
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Why can't I crochet question. Bwaha. on: July 24, 2007 08:14:36 AM
I started knitting in January and I'm in love with it. In February, I picked up a crochet hook. I tried and tried and tried to crochet, but everything I crochet is very tight and looks like big messy knit stitches for some reason. I want to make my crochet look like...crochet. Am I using the wrong type of yarn or something? I practice crocheting my ASS off (I bought four new hooks that are better than the one I had before, Susan Bates Crystallites, now I have regular Boye hooks) with Red Heart acryllic yarn. It's so hard to chain and crochet that i have to manually lift the loop over the hook. I know how to chain properly, but it's hard to do so and when I do it still looks all close and bunched together. Siiiigh. I want to one day be able to crochet as well as I can knit. I want to make hats and amigurumis. Everyone's all like, "Crochet is so easy!" Yeah, then why does everything I make look like crap?
14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / What to do with thin string hemp? on: July 17, 2007 03:47:20 PM
I have a full ball of thin string hemp and I have no idea what to do with it. I tried knitting with it and could only do a few rows, it's hell on my hands. I could make bracelets and necklaces but I only know the butterfly stitch...I don't want to waste the hemp. I don't know what to do with it.

That's so cute! I could never figure out how to knit like that...I mean, the knitting looks all arrowy. I have a sweater I bought and it had arrowy knitting like that and then in between it just purly looking stitches.
16  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Can you put pictures on drawstring cinch backpacks? on: March 28, 2007 01:04:10 PM
Can you do iron-on tranfers for drawstring cinch backpacks? Think of the ones you can buy at FootLocker or any shoe store. Most of them are made by Nike. My friend is looking to make a lot of backpacks with her friend's picture on them and she's going to hand them out to friends.

I love it all. Did you have a pattern for the hat ordid you just make it up as you went along?
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting hats in the round on: February 23, 2007 07:42:34 AM
Is it possible to make a hat by just crocheting in the round over and over? Will the hat actually join into a hat? When I crochet small things in the round they usually start to look like little hats so I'm just wondering. I will never be able to decipher patterns.
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP! How do you measure circular needles? on: February 19, 2007 07:32:06 AM
I was going to ask a question about the size of circulars today, but this is already here so I'll ask in the thread. I recently went to the store and bought a pair of "10 circular needles. It is really hard to use them, as the cable is huuuuuuuuge. When I see pictures of other circular needles, the cables are really small and look easy to work with. When I knit with circulars (only for a row or two, it sucks that bad) the cable is all bent and all the work twists. It's also annoying that the stitches will not meet. What is the best size of circulars for a beginner to work with? I hate very long cables.

It looks great! I saw this pattern before and I really liked it until I saw "DPNs" on the list. Those things scare me.
