If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all

9 Sep 2006

But where's the fun in that?

From the knitlist this week:

I am looking for a pattern for a wrap....something to just throw across
shoulders....not necessarily a full shawl or a full sweater.....possibly
with pockets.

Anybody have any ideas if there is even a pattern out there?

- UMM. Surely the time it took you to post this shit to the list you could have googled and scrolled through a hundred patterns? Or did you just have to see your name in lights on that list? Nine thousand people read this message, and eight thousand of them snorted. You idiot.

Does anybody know where the biggest yarn shop is?? I'm thinking
somewhere in the New England area (yes I'm referring to ones in the
states but overseas would work well too).

Living in FL, our yarn shops arent that big. There is a *nice*
selection but it seems as some of you up north and out west have some
NICE yarn shops. What do you all think??



I think you should shut up. Why do you need to know? Who cares?



I want to knit a shawl using Schaefer yarns pima cotton. My LYS had a
completed model which I would like to duplicate. Problem is their did
not use a pattern. They told me to cast on 40 sts, knit 1 increase
and increase at end of row. Repeat this row.

Problem, I followed the instructions using a knit into the front and
back of the stitch for the increase. I am not happy with the results
as it makes a tight edge down the side of the shawl. I am looking for
advice for increasing which prevents a tight edge on a shawl which has
a lot of stretch or is loose. Hope that make sense.


- Um. Why not do a little swatch trying another type of increase? No, better still, why not post this drivel to the biggest online knitting list? I'm sure someone will do the thinking for your, after all that's what they're there for. To cater to your whims. It's all about you.

And stranger things happen - is it just me or do some of these lion brand patterns look more than half decent?
