1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / tubular cast on on: May 15, 2007 12:14:55 PM
Hi I'm trying to make the endpaper mitts, and I cannot get past the tubular cast on.  It is not stretchy enough to get over my hand even.  I really need help so if anyone has made this can give me any advice it would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Best Circular needles for lace knitting! on: April 26, 2007 04:17:01 PM
What needles do you recommend, the project I'm doing needs either size 00 or 0.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Molly Ringwald from knitscene, and it has given me nothing but grief! on: March 13, 2007 10:07:45 AM
Ever since I started this project it has given me nothing but trouble.  For the life of me I cannot get the gauge right.  I started knitting it on size five needles, and the gauge on the swatch was fine, but when I started the project it was a lot wider than it should have been.  I cast on for the extra small size, and the measurements equal to that of the medium or large size, I'm not certain.  So then I decided to go down a needle size I'm using fours now, and the width and length are still not right.  At the moment the width equals that of the small, but the length of it is shorter than it is supposed to be because the row gauge is an inch short.  I used the classic elite classic silk that the pattern called for and I have no clue what I'm doing wrong.  I've tried a whole bunch of different needles and none seem to be working properly, and I did like five different gauge swatches.  I'm personally just ready to give this project up because I don't know what else to do.  I've made five or six garments, and I've never had a problem like this before.
