Re: Big Wool Keeps on Turning...Wednesday

I had my knits and purls backwards . . .I didn't even realize it until someone said my purls were looking good as a cuff . . . .

Yea I got some superwash . . .I don't have the pattern with me at work (I'm on break for another minute) I'm hoping 400 yards is enough . . .if not, then I guess I'll be turning that yarn into something else

Re: Big Wool Keeps on Turning...Wednesday

I'm right there with you, Kristi! Waiting for my coffee to kick in. What yarn are you knitting with?

And speaking of yarn, I need ideas please. I promised myself this yarn: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7772421 when I learned to knit. It's about time I purchase it. But it's only 70 yds of bulky. So do I want a scarflette (I actually don't have a scarf right now) or should I use it as trim for a different project for me? And if so, what project -- any suggestions?

are you on Rav? (if so, what's your username there?) I think 400 yds is the top end amount for the SMSS Kimono...going to check

ooh yummy yarn!!!! I'd do a small scarf or a hat. Definitely something next to the skin for you.

ETA: coffee would be soooo nice! But avoiding during the pregnancy as it can potentially cause lower birthweights and well, I have issue with growth restriction as it is.

400 should be enough, I know I made a 2T size one (different pattern obviously) and 400 yds was more then enough -- so you would think that in most patterns it would be close to the same.

I think it will be great for a sweater!!

If you look at the pattern you are using, it should tell you how much yarn you need for each size.

Morning mamas.

OK- I am stuck and I need some help pretty please. So I completed my waist band, did my increases, started into the colorway and am ready to start short rows (which have me totally baffled). I have a couple of questions.... Thus far I have not used stitch markers and I guess I need some huh? I do know my exact starting point, so, where and how do I place the stitch marker and what common household item can I use if I own no stitch markers? I am confused where to "begin" with short rows. HELP!

Good luck Kristi!! Don't feel badly... knitting is literally like another language completely foreign until you learn it. You're doing great!!!

I have no ideas but I just wanted to say that it's beautiful. I love it.
