1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Amigurumi Fraggles? on: September 20, 2007 09:19:49 AM
I've hunted through Craftster pretty thoroughly in the hopes of finding some brilliant soul who's attempted an amigurumi Fraggle Rock character. Anyone know of a pattern for one or perhaps know of a pattern that could be altered slightly to make a Fraggle?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Stuck on socks! on: February 22, 2007 03:24:03 PM
EDIT: Ignore the following. I'm a doofus. Figured things out for now but I assume I'll have another crisis and get back on here soon enough.

I'm knitting my first pair from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks - specifically the Gentleman's Plain Winter Sock. I've scoured craftster and other sites for help, including knittinghelp.com but still am confused!

I finished the cuff and the leg, arranged the sts as per the pattern (18 on Needle 1, 33 on Needle 2 for instep, and 19 on Needle 3). It then says: Knit across sts on needles 1 and 2. Does this mean I proceed to do this now? Or keep this in mind while I'm doing other stuff?

I thought knittinghelp.com gave me the answer and that I was supposed to just be knitting back and forth on one needle to make the heel but the pattern continues with...

Heel flap instructions: Set up for working 37 heel sts on 1 needle as foll: Sl 1, k17, p1 (center st), k18 sts from needle 1 - 37 sts for heel. Hold rem 33 sts on 2 needles to be worked later for instep. Work 37 heel sts back and forth in rows as foll: "blah blah..."

Okay, now I get that I need to set things up in order to knit back and forth to make the heel but the set up instructions baffle me.

Bottom line: can someone make the "set up for working 37 heel sts on needle 1 as foll" instructions more clear? I have no clue how I'm supposed to do this and finish up with "k18 sts from needle 1"...  Huh
3  Washington / Washington: West / Knitters at UW? on: February 08, 2007 09:48:04 AM
I'm starting at the University of Washington at the end of March (SPR 07 QTR) and was wondering if there are any established knitting groups, or any sort of yarnish folk, on campus. I did a search and was surprised nothing popped up!...especially since we're so close to my fave LYS, The Weaving Works.
