31  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: DPN's Problem on: September 24, 2007 01:23:33 PM
Ok, I started the whole thing, didn't go for fetching after all, cos i find soooo boring and annoying to do cables, even if they look sooo pretty...
So, I went with cider moon's april may mittens here:
http://cidermoon.com/cm0125.html#

I'm using two pairs of dpns and it all seems to be going fine...I thought of using magic loop but i tend to get all tangled up so, i decided to give a try to my first kinda big round thing with dpns once and for all....

Someone advised that if you're missing a dpn, it would be alright to sub one in the next size up or down. There's not a lot of difference in them and you would be rotating the stitches knit with the odd size, so it should be uniform.

Yeah, that's what I thought... but I wanted to ask just to know that I wasn't going to knit something i'd have to frog afterwards...

Completeing a set shouldn't cost you more than $5 for a set of 4.  Extra DPNs are great for cabling. Smiley
The problem with this is that I don't have a decent LYS, when i finally got a pair of dpns it was by miracle and they didn't know anything about them.... just that they had them there...

The other thing you can try is use your two dpn plus the circular needle.  Then you can knit with three needles arranged in a circlar and the other end of your circular as working needle.  Hope it makes sense.

Have fun.  Smiley
Also thought of that, I think it's going to be the way to go... I want them to look decent... Tongue Also the yarn was sent as an extra from a swap and I wouldn't want to waste it...
I'm gonna give it a try and see what I come up with...
33  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / DPN's Problem on: September 23, 2007 08:32:58 PM
Ok, I have a tiny problem... My bf bought me this huge lot of needles from ebay... so now i have 15 sets of straight, 15 of circular and 15 of double pointed needles... but the dpns are just pairs, not the whole set...
I'm dying to try to make a pair of Knitty's fetching, but I don't know what to do... Could I use another pair to complete the set and work with mmmm, size 6 & 7 needles all around... or would it ruin the whole thing???

oh thay're so cute, love the little penguin!  Grin
Isn't he adorable? I was trying to see if I could pull it off... Also, I have a linux obsessed bf, who freaked when he saw it... which was part of the plan Tongue
Also, I think i may have found a way to overcome my present camera crisis... My brother has a new fancy phone, that takes pics with 2.0 mp, far better than my 0.0 mp one Tongue so, decent pics will be taken soon...

I've been reading and reading, but too lazy to write at all... mostly cos i had nothing crafty to tell...
But now i kinda do... Tongue I've been playing with the fimo clay! Cheesy:D:D I made two tiny bears, a dog, a penguin and my attempt at a sugar skull, sadly I just have unhappy colors... Tongue (black, gold, silver, brown, peach and blue) so, the poor skull isn't colorful enough... I plan to keep playing with the clay tomorrow, so I can bake a decent batch... they are all tiny, no more than an inch... and pretty cute, if u don't mind me saying Tongue
Here's a bunch of pretty crappy pics... Might be adding them to my shop in a few days...

I love the screen cleaners kitschkween, they are sooo pretty! Cheesy

I finally did a couple of bear charms (really tiny ones...) with the clay i got from ptarmic a few rounds back on the sts supplies... I'll probably bake them tomorrow and take a few pics... also i'll be adding a few ipod cozies... my nano misteriously dissapeared and it's probably really cold at the moment, since all it's clothes were left behind... sooooo, since my baby vanished i have pretty cute clothes that i won't be using anymore... (ah, soooooo tragic! Tongue) but if anyone would want bigger clothes for bigger ipods i'm up for custom work...
