Stitches - The Knifty Knitter Making the Double Ribbed StitchAs mentioned above, the double ribbed stitch can be done following the knit 2, purl 2 pattern. That is how it is done on a round loom. However, there is an easier way to make this stitch on the long loom. The important thing to remember about this wrap is that you are tracing the yarn back across the loom exactly as it was placed the first time. When you've reached the last peg, simply loop around as seen on the lower right peg of the photo. Once you've wrapped two rows of the double ribbed stitch, you can knit off by using the Knifty Knitter hook that comes with the loom sets to gently lift the bottom loop outward, over and off the peg. There is now one row left on each peg. The Finished Knit of the Double Ribbed StitchHere is a photo of finished double ribbed knit done on the Knifty Knitter long loom.This knit is light and airy because it was done with only one strand of light-weight cotton yarn.

macrame instructions - introduction Macramé is the art of decorative knotting. I am attempting, in the pages shown here, to teach you the basic knots which you can then use to create your own original designs. This is not meant to be a comprehensive course in macramé but I hope to provide information to get you started. I will periodically add new design ideas and tips to this site. The two most commonly used knots are the square knot and the double half hitch. My macramé designs are based on creative variations using almost exclusively these two knots. Cords can be mounted on a dowel or on a horizontal cord using the simple lark's head or the double half hitch for mounting cords. MATERIALS TO START WITH-the essentials knotting board or foam core T pins (available at most craft supply or sewing stores) scissors cord or twine (seine twine, hemp, and jute work well)
rostitchery: i'm a knifty knitter! it's taking a while to get pictures of the opera costumes, but i've been SO eager to get back to regular posting that i'm just going to move on and post pictures as i get them. the fallout from the opera--all 72 costumes of it--is that i can't bear the thought of sewing right now, so with the cold weather coming, i've been KNITTING! and not just any knitting either, i picked up a set of knifty knitter looms and just as usual, i've been trying to figure out ways to do things on my own. actually, i've been forced to do so--there is a pitiful dearth of patterns or techniques available for these neat little gadgets, so naturally i had to come up with something. my first completed project was this little bumblebee hat for ella (click to see enlargement): there--i hope you are duly impressed with my ingenuity. :) whether or not the techniques i used to make this hat are "legal", i don't know, but they worked, and here is the pattern as best as i can explain it:

May 2007 I was asked this question recently, how do I find time to knit. I honestly do take a knitting bag with me nearly everywhere. There have been times I've been tempted to take a small project along to work on while standing in line at the grocery store. I don't know why I have to spend more time in line waiting to pay for my things than I spent gathering them from the store shelves. When I was working on my book, there were times I knit in the car, but just while sitting at leap year red lights. I didn't keep that up for long, as I quickly realized I was not setting a very good example for my daughter, who is old enough to remember this when she starts driving in a few short years! The trick to knitting on the go is to work on simple and/or small projects. Things that don't work for short bursts of knitting are complex stitch patterns, complex color patterns, and large projects that get bulky and heavy to carry around. So where do I take my knitting?

Chasse aux papillons Les papillons en boite qui trônaient dans le couloir de ma grand-mère, au dessus de la commode de l’entrée, ont toujours exercé sur moi une attraction étrange. J’étais à la fois subjuguée par les couleurs et la beauté de ces créatures délicates et mortifiée à l’idée qu’on les ait épinglé là sans ménagement. Surtout que les papillons étaient des créatures magiques et bienfaisantes (enfin, seulement les papillons de jour, les papillons de nuit eux étaient des bestioles maléfiques, évidemment !). Nous l’avions décidé avec quelques amies. Il ne pouvait pas en être autrement. Bref, je m’inquiétais donc fortement pour l’avenir de ma grand-mère qui avait commis le crime de lèse-majesté d’orner sa maison avec des cadavres de créatures magiques. Il y a tout juste deux ans, en me rendant chez Deyrolle, j’ai vu plus de papillons en boite que tout ce que j’avais pu voir jusque-là. Do it yourself Rien de plus simple. Pour le papillon, le pliage est vraiment très simple.
