1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Just another dress... on: October 09, 2007 04:57:45 AM
Thanx for compliments.

To be honest I was waiting with posting any instructions or tutorial. But now I could prepare a brief tutorial by your request as well as the pattern but please let me know if you really intend to sew it. This pattern I used is for a girl 98cm tall. It's truly a lot of work preparing patterns and making tuts. You know, I just don't want to waist time because I could sew something else instead.

Well, I am sure it would be a well loved tute! Cheesy Is this a pattern that is pretty much shaped like a peasant top with a slightly more narrow top on the body or modeled more after the raglan styles? Cheesy Thanks!

BTW-It is adorable! I LOVE the colors you choose. Smiley

okay, here is what you should do. Cheesy sew all the pieces you just drew together with fabric A Cheesy Then do the exact same with fabric B. Cheesy Place fabric right sides together and sew all the way along the sides, leaving an opening near the shoulder to turn inside out Cheesy Woohoo! Smiley Cheesy Hope that is what you were looking for! Smiley HTH,

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Circular knitting question :D on: September 24, 2007 09:51:54 AM
You don't actually slip the stitches from one needle to the other.

Once they are evenly distributed (ok so this requires some slipping) make sure that they aren't twisted and get your spare needle.

find the first stitch cast on and using the tail which should be joined at the other end knit using the spare needle, which will join them in a circle.

now use this needle to knit (or purl etc as required) all the stitches of needle 1.

Once you have knitted (etc) all those stitches needle 1 is free! the spare needle is attached and needle 1 goes one to knit (etc) all the stitches of needle 2

and so on.

Was that more confusing? I'm sorry if it was.

It easier to give it a go.

That's with DPNs of course, knitting with a circular needle is far easier - cast on, don't turn, just find that first stitch you cast on and keep going...around...and around...and around.

Oh and continuously knitting (without purling) produces stockingette stitch  Cheesy

 Grin Thanks! Cheesy Soooooooooooooo I am going to use circs. I will post here later with an update or more questions! Cheesy Grin
