131  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Crochet for the Knitter on: March 05, 2007 12:28:39 PM
I am currently working on Ms. Marigold and have 12" left on the body and then the sleeves.  The pattern calls for a crochet ruffle and to pick up the sleeves using a crochet hook.  I purchased the right size from my LYS, but have no crochet skills.  Are there any online resources with videos (free if possible) where I can watch this technique of picking up stitches and singel crochet being done? I did purchase one of the Stitch n Bitch books on Amazon since there was a description that included crochet help.  I think that I'll be finished my sweater before it arrives however and can learn better through a video versus a illustrated picture.

I did think about the different fibers, but I usually keep my front open and then use shrugs for extra warmth in the back.  Fingers crossed - it should be fine on that front - although - if I'm wrong, I'll end up with two oranginas in coordinating colors.

I really want to try it, but at the same time, am afraid that after having the front and back of the top close to completion, I'll ruin it with this last attempt.  (I'm getting cold feet I think.  Smiley )

I am very green new to the online blog thing, but love it.  I have this strong desire to have people share my knitting experiences with me.  I think it's the same reason I've been joing knit alongs which I'm also new to...it's fun to knit which is usually a solo even, yet with the internet, you get to share your experience and not be solo.

Here's my blog:

I downloaded the schedule even though I can't go.  The classes seemed to be a dream come true (if I was going of course).  Does this always happen in the same spot or do they move around? I'm in San Diego and would LOVE to go.

Keep us posted on what happens.

I'm not sure that they are the same diameter.  I get the correct guage using different needle sizes.  I'm almost finished the back lace portion of the peice and need to decide soon.  I guess I can try a mini-rib swatch (I'm horrible at swatching, but I don't want to ruin a great peice either).

136  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Corrugated Ribbing on: February 17, 2007 10:10:58 AM
I'm currently working on Orangina to Stephanie Japel with the Glampyre Girls.  I have chosen to use Svale by Dalegarn in a lavendar color for the front lace portion and then do the back in Nature Spun by Brown Sheep Company in Amethyst.  I would like to bring the two colors together by using the Amethyst at the bottom 8" of ribbing for both front or back, but then had an idea to do corrugated ribbing with both the lavendar and amethyst.  Having not done corrugated ribbing before, I'm wondering if it will work out since they are two different materials - one wool, the other one is a silk, cotton, viscose blend.  Any suggestions?

I finished my Wicked last month.  I actually was able to finnish it in a couple of weeks by knitting with the Sexy Knitter's Club knitalong.  Everyone knit either Wicked, Eiffel, or both.  I used Soy Silk for a total of 7 skeins.  That was just to make the short sleeve verison!

I think that if you check out www.sexyknittersclub.com you can probably find a few people who either knit the 3/4 sleeve or the full sleeve to answer your question about decreases.

I finished mine last month using Karoke soysilk.  It was great fun knitting it and fast as well.
