1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: "attempted" dog sweater.... on: October 12, 2005 11:15:40 AM
That poor dog definitely looks like he needs a sweater. He has such short, fine fur!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: OSW Seaming HELP!!! on: September 29, 2005 11:11:53 AM
I hope I can help because I just finished another one of these this weekend. First you do the seed stitch back and forth on the sleeve stitches. Once you have the sleeves worked and bound off, you will have two little sleeve flaps and your back stitches on a holder. Put the bottoms of the sleeve together, matching the seed stitch bands in the round and seam about 1.5 inches only (up to raglan "seams").

I know it will make sense when you get there! Go ahead and do the seed stitch and the place you need to seam will be there.

I haven't finished mine yet, but I am really looking forward to wearing it to the movies to keep me warm.

I made this sweater a while back and I had the same problem. If I recall, the pattern does not go by any number of rows, you mostly knit in stockinette for a certain number of inches. So the row guage is not really a problem.

The top looks really good on you, and I think it is so much nicer and more wearable without the novelty yarn! Good choice!!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: A long long questiony post about *scream* the Boobholder - I am SO confused! on: May 20, 2005 10:30:47 AM
When you join the body pieces, you skip the sleeve stitches and cinch the body and the back together. The first time, the stitch is a little awkward, but there is not a huge gap where the sleeve stitches used to be. You just push the sleeves out of the way and the body continues without them.
I know you will do great once you are actually there! The straight needles must make it really confusing because you can't hold it up and see that it actually kind of looks like a sweater.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sock Sizing Help! on: May 18, 2005 07:53:23 AM
I have a bigfoot boyfriend, too! I just made him a pair of socks and I was worried that after I spent all the time on them that they wouldn't fit. The lucky thing about socks is you can just make them as long as you want, and I covered my bets by making them in a cotton/elastic yarn from Elann so they were stretchy. They fit very well.

So I would recommend making them in the Sock it to me Collection Esprit yarn from Elann.com
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Frustrated with making increases...please help! on: May 17, 2005 06:38:01 AM
If you don't twist your m1's it will make a hole. Knitting them twisted makes it very tight and closes up the hole.

I learned that one after making quite a few holey increases myself!
