Greetings and kudos to a great site!
The video section has been of monumental help to be in my knitting escapades. I have a question right off the bat. Bought a great book, "Domiknitrix". I am atttempting to make a bead with yarn and wanted to know if there is an easier way to go about it other than the lift increase, which I cannot seem to perform. What about a bead video!!!?? Just kidding. Thank you!!!!

I'm not really clear on what you are trying to do with the bead. One way to attach a bead is to have prestrung on the yarn and then knit it on. A second way is to use a crochet hook to do it by taking the stitch off the left needle, holding it with the hook, sliding the bead off the crochet hook on to the stitch and putting the stitch back on the left needle to be knit.

Thanks,
Nikita

Thanks for the response. Tha actual bead is made of yarn. The design is called string of purls and involves i-cord and right/left increase. You wear it as a necklace or make one large bead, i-cord, than another large bead like a lariat. Does that make sense? Thanks!

Hi
Hi, my name is Debby and I'm a knitting addict. I started knitting when I was a kid. At first I was a recreational knitter; a scarf here, a sweater there. I could finish a project and then not even pick up my needles or look for a new pattern for months or even years. Knitting was no big deal.

Then, about a year ago, I was vacationing with my family at Lake Tahoe. My mom was knitting scarves for her friends. I remembered how much I enjoyed knitting so I went to the local yarn shop and got some yarn and needles so I could knit along with Mom.

Since then I've become a total "Yarn Ho" (I mean that in a good way).

I've progressed from scarves to sweaters to socks and beyond. Don't even ask me about my stash. :rollseyes:

I'd say that I'm mostly a technical knitter. I love learning about how different stitches and techniques affect the finished product. My knitting library reflects this.

I guess that's why I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this site.

Well, that's enough about me for now.

Hi All
I am new to knitting. When I ever learn how to knit, my goal is to make dishcloths for small Christmas gifts. This is a great website! I especially like the instructions for left handed quilting. I ordered the KnittingHelp.com CD-Rom. Can't wait to get it.

Newbie Here!!
I just bought an awesome set of knitting and crochet stuff on ebay from " yarna " and I'm so excited to start knitting. I have attempted before, but never really got the hang of it. I am usually a crocheter and I LOVE it but there are some things you just can't do with crochet.

I stumbled on your site looking for how to use the Boye stitch gauge checker (never found it!) and am excited to be here. I look forward to learning more about knitting and increasing my skills.

I am a wife and mom of two. David is 4 and has juvenile bipolar disorder as well as PDD (Asperger's) and my daughter Abby is 15 months. I don't have a lot of time on my hands because of dealing with my son and managing his behaviors, but I try to fill all my time with knitting and crochet as it helps me to relax.

Well, I suppose that is all. Thanks!

My first time on a forum!
Hello. I am new to knitting. I make silver jewlery as a hobby, and do stone setting, hollow forms, some small scale forging. my husband is a musician, so i took up knitting as an activity for when he practices. It is a little disruptive for me to be hammering on my anvils while he is playing his quieter instruments....so, by knitting i can keep him company and still be doing something constructive while he plays or sings.

i started about a year and a half ago, and have made a number of scarves, 5 sweaters so far, with another 2 in the works. I also started crocheting (I get a little carried away sometimes). After a brief tutorial from my friend susan, i have been teaching myself. now i've reached the limits of my knowledge, and would welcome some help.

If anyone can explain the following, i've be very grateful. I have gone looking through my reference books, and i am still mystified. I am working on a pattern by Filati. I've reached the top of the sweater, and the instructions read as follows:

"dec for short shaping on every alt row and each end 2 sts once, 1 st once, 2 sts once and 1 st twice, working visible inc."

"visible inc: right edge: edge st, K1, K tog 3 resp. 2. Left edge: 1 double resp. 1 simple slip dec (= slip 1 knitwise, K2 tog resp. K1, psso), K1, edge st."

Thank you, and I hope someone out there can put me out of my misery!!!! I just hate being frustrated. Deirdre
