Hello Men (and Women) Who Knit! For those who don't know, I'm the site admin. *friendlywave*
ok. rewrote the trey bracelet ( http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/trey ) pattern so it makes some sense and doesn't leave things out. but i need a spot checker or two.
is there a style of knitting, whether on regular needles, or DPNs, or circs, that lets you avoid purling, by turning the needles somehow? maybe by using dpn's and sliding the stitches to the opposite end of your needle and turning your work, etc?
i'm thinking something where if the pattern says:
knit 5, purl 10, knit 5, slip 2 purlwise
you could instead just:
hi all... looking for a pattern for a hybrid style of gloves... i saw 2 patterns on ravelry that are similar to my brain's vision (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...e-finger-mitts and http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...-winter-gloves) but still not quite... i'd like sort of a combo of those 2 - fingertipless thumb and full-size fingertipless index.
Has anybody attempted/finished a 10-stitch blanket such as http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ten-stitch-blanket ? I've tried and frogged 4 times now. I can't get past the corner stuff. It's either too many instructions, or too many new concepts for a newbie, or I'm missing something, or whatever. I've tried looking for a video of it being made, to no avail.
using size 8 circulars and 3-ply sayelle (acrylic) parisienne DK yarn from mary maxim. cast on 150, joined in the round for a cowl/neck warmer. now, trying to do a pattern of:
* knit 1, yarn over once, knit 2 together once
knit 2, yarn over twice, knit 2 together twice
knit 3, yarn over 3 times, knit 2 together 3 times
repeat from *...
OK, so I usually look askance at these comments about "knitting in public." I knit anywhere I like, public or private, and I have never had a negative experience with it.
Pattern: Hofsos Pullover by Stephen West
Yarn: Brooklyn Tweed Loft (Fossil, Woodsmoke, & Stormcloud)
Needles: US 7 & 8
Since I still consider myself a beginner, I really welcome advice and ideas. I'm making my first sock. If it turns out ok, I'll knit the second and call them a pair. :)
Somewhere, in the last week, I read an article, with great pictures, of
how someone dropped stitches and re-knitted row by row using coloured pins
for each row.
Does that sound familiar to anyone?
Can't find the article.
