I'm pretty new to knitting and this is my first big project. Here's a link to the project http://knitting.about.com/library/blbear2.htm

My question is what does it mean by turn in row 9 - k1, inc, k25, t, p24, t, k22, t, p20, t, k18, t, p16, t, k14, t, p12, t, k10, t, p8, t, k6, t, p4, t, k15, inc, k1=32 st

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm working on the "Knit-Round Scarf" in Book 1: The Knit Stitch by Sally Melville. First, let me say, this looks more like a capelet to me, which is what i'm shooting for, we'll see i guess =)
I'm using a lovely hand-painted yarn that doesn't give me the self-striping look as in her picture, but is lovely nonetheless.
My question, this is just straight stockinette - i was wanting to use an open work kind-of-a-stitch about 1/3 of the way down just to break it up. i've made that drop stitch scarf before but don't know if it would work. also consulted the Vogue Stitchionary and didn't see anything that might work.
would you creative folks please give me some ideas and instruction?
thanks =)

Sweater:
Pattern: The Danish Nattrojer by Beth Brown-Reinsel, Interweave Knits magazine Winter 2004, modified from adult size to a unisex baby sweater.

Yarn: Dale of Norway Baby Ull %100 wool, machine washable. Color 5755 (dark blue), 3 balls.

Needles: 3mm (between US size 2 & 3), two 20" circular needles.

Gauge: 8.5 sts/inch stocking stitch in the round, 10 rounds/inch in stocking stitch.

Time to Complete: It took me about 5 days to complete the pattern modifications, calculations and charting, most of that time spent filling in the graph paper and checking my math. Knitting time = May 22 through June 6, 2006.

Finished size: Chest 12", length 10.5" blocked. Approx. size 9-12 months.


Socks:
Pattern: Ann Budd's Knit Baby's First Sock (PDF file).

Yarn: Dale of Norway Baby Ull %100 wool, machine washable. Color 5755 (dark blue), less than one ball remaining from sweater, and a bit of left-over dark blue Koigu for the last half of the 2nd sock.

Needles: US # 1, 4 dpns.

Gauge: 20 sts and 26 rounds = 2 inches in round using basket weave stitch pattern.

Time to Complete: They should have taken a few days but I hadn't finished the 2nd sock in a timely manner.

Finished size: About a 4 inch foot circumference, about 12 months.

Photos and Notes of Baby Sized Danish Nattrojer and Basket Weave Socks:Collapse )


What I liked and what I'd do differently: I love the boxy cut and how the checkerboard pattern frames the neck, hem and cuffs to emphasize the lines, and how the diagonal pattern in the stars and zigzag motif contrasts the stiff vertical and horizontal structure. The Baby Ull yarn was great to work with, the garment is super light and will be just right over an undershirt. If I were to do this again, I would tinker with the sleeves. I'll have to see how it fits on a child to determine if I want to keep the armhole shaping the same on the body and add more stitches to the sleeve, or if the sleeve is perfect then I would bind off for the armhole higher than I had done originally.

I needed some kind of a project to do while I (compulsively) watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer during my free time. I wanted something with a relatively repetitive pattern, but nothing too simple. I found elann.com's Bed of Roses shawl, but due to a lacking of yarn and patience, I stopped wayyyyy early and did a lot of tweaking with it.

Only two pics, since I'm camera stupidCollapse )

So way back in December I decided to try out kool aid dyeing. I had a gift certificate to Jo-Ann's so I bought a skein of lion brand fisherman's wool and a then went to the grocery store and bought a ton of kool aid.

I tried out four different colors and they all turned out great!Collapse )

So I just saw the link to this pattern at Drops design and I did a double take.

Isn't this pretty much the exact same thing as the infamous Panta on Craftster?

So is this infringement by someone or just a coincidence?

My mother is looking for baby yarn... plain ol' baby yarn. She used to buy Jamie (Lion Brand) but it's been discontinued. The stuff is priced wildly on eBay, plus she would be wanting a more permanent substitution. Not sport yarn, but one notch thinner, ya know? Doesn't anyone use baby yarn anymore?

Gauge of Jamie: Knit: 24 sts & 32 rows = 4" with size 5 (3.75 mm) needles

Requirements: WASHABLE/DRYABLE!

Hi,

Forgive me if this has already been answered. I tried looking through the memories and LJ Google search and couldn't really find the answer to my Q. Well..I did sort of.

Anyway - I'm a beginner knitter and I'm trying to change colors for the first time and I don't know how to do it! I'm making a baby hat using circular needles. I already read some entries about the trick of doing the jogless color change when using circular needles. However, I don't know if I'm doing the basic color change the right way. How do you do it? Can someone explain this to me in (very) plain English? ok, even in dumbed-down English? I'd really appreciate it. So far I've tried two color changes (doing thick stripes) and I've done both of them wrong. There's a jog in the first one and the 2nd one there's a weird hole. I'm going to try to fix those and sew them up best I can when I'm finished...but really I want to know the right way to do it so I don't have to "fix" anything!

Thanks so much
Angela

Since so many posters here don't have cameras and use their cellcams to photograph their knitting, I hope the mods won't object to:

Tips for getting better pictures with a camera phone.

(Many of the tips are actually pretty useful no matter what kind of camera you're using).

hi everyone! i'm somewhat of a beginner and i've just started knitting the cleo clutch and i'm on row 6. i just noticed that along the way that i seem have to messed up a cable or two a few rows down. it doesnt look bad and none of my friends knit so the only person (other than myself) who may notice the mistake is my very observant boyfriend, but i digress...anyways, this is my 3rd attempt at the clutch so i've frogged twice. i'd rather not frog again even if it is to just where the mistake is, so being that i have never felted before,  my question is - will felting hide my small cable mistake? it seems that i may have C4F when i should have T4B or something to that effect. =\

thanks in advance for any help!

Anyone knit Eyelet Chemise from IK summer06? I am having a world of difficulty, and was wondering if someone had tips or a row-by-row write up? (I know that would be too much to hope for) If not, I might have to break down and spend a day at my LYS, but that is a last resort. It is 90 degrees here and they don't use their AC!!!

Thanks in advance!

hmmmmmm...would you knit this with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Multi? even though there are the holes would it be too warm using wool?

oh, and would it be striped? would that look good?

just trying to figure out my next project, even though i haven't even finished my clapotis yet. hehehe...

thanks!

finocchio
220 yards, medium-bulkyCollapse )

it's not really enough to make something big, but it's pretty thick. it's wool, incredibly soft, hand spun and not even by any means-it was therapy spinning that netted really good looking results.

so what would you knit with it?
