Just curious, did this swap ever happen?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: In you opinion: Cables on: May 09, 2009 11:13:55 AM
I agree with everyone, cables look more difficult than they actually are.  I started with a beginner's project in a learn to cable book then I was off doing a much harder sweater for my very next project and it came out perfect.  I think a good cable needle is essential.  I tried two kinds and I like the kind that is shaped like a candycane.  There is no danger of your stitches coming off that needle until you are ready to work them.

Thank you.  I found it in an Annie's Attic catalog a while ago but they no longer sell the kit.  You can get the pattern directly from the designer, Mary Buse Melick.  You may contact her through mail:

Stella-Marie Publications, Dept. 876
P.O. Box 5182
Pinehurst, NC 28374

You can also find her on Ravelry.  She has another angel pin I will work on after I finish this one.  She designs beautiful things.

To see what goes on on the needles, I think this is the best tutorial:

I love the glow in the dark.  I got mine on clearance too.  Since I didn't know what I was going to do with it at the time, I only bought two skeins.  I hope they bring it back next Halloween.  Good luck on your project and I hope to see the FO in the completed projects.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  As you can tell by my name, I am primarily a knitter.  I am trying to make this:

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / pattern help, please on: January 28, 2009 07:15:56 AM
My pattern says, "sc in 3 dtr, 2 sc in next dtr".  How do you single crochet IN a double triple crochet?  Do I single crochet in each of the three double triple crochets?

I would love to know how you do pics in knitting, is their a book or a web site that shows one how to make a pattern from a pic?

Me too.  I have some pictures I'd like to knit.  Maybe there is a website to help us?

Is that the Basketweave Baby Blanket from Mary Maxim?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Knitting a comic book page...very slowly. on: December 18, 2008 06:47:16 AM

Basically, I take the image, scan it into the computer, then resize it to how ever many stitches wide I need (ex: 125 pixels wide = 125 stitches wide) Then I opened up a new layer and redrew the picture pixel by pixel in two tones (trust me, the resize looks pretty awful by itself, and you get a lot more control this way) I used to do some pixel art, so I'm used to working that small. Then you size it back up to however big you want to print it (make sure it's not being resampled though, you want to keep all those sharp edges) and make a grid over top of it so you can count each block.

I'm using photoshope, but I'm sure something else could be used

I'm just a simple little knitter.  Is there a site where I could use a scanned picture and get a pixelated image?  I have very little, if any, artistic ability.

By the way, your talents amaze me.
