Hi Diana,

Thank you for the nice words. I was a "silent knitter" but after 5 blankets I thought it was time to join the KAS family.

Kind regards, Klara

U r most welcome Diane, I am so pleased you like the pattern and the more hats & beanies we can knit the better. I have now knitted 1 Wendy beanie & 3 ribbed hats with Christine's crown shaping:) and will be doing some more:)

So pleased you're liking the twisted rib Diana. Staying indoors with the knitting needles is definitely better than being outside in -11. The coldest we have had here is -1 so that would feel quite warm to you. Happy knittng. Best wishes Kathy:)

Diana, I just started counting the contents of one tub of small balls (nothing much bigger than a golf-ball) and gave up at a 100. Bearing in mind that I have three or four boxes full I'm looking for a wholesaler of safety pins. Seriously though, I usually try to wind the balls round my thumb which leaves a hole in the middle into which I tuck the end of the yarn so it isn't too big a problem.

I have been asked to rewrite the diagonal square pattern for the Pattern Book, giving the alternative decreases that some of us have found to work. I wonder how many of us found the same thing; seems to be quite a few so hopefully this will help. As I type your neat knitting is passing in front of me and you have certainly made some beauties.

Looks great, Diana!!! You got it!!!

I'm sorry that I couldn't reply sooner. A power outage for three and a half hours late this morning and its not long come back on. Missed the Williams/Scharapova match that I had been 'hanging out' to see.......but still knitted....what else can a gal do without power.....lol.

Well done Diana, I knew you would get there:)

Correction for previous message. If 35 or 39 is cast on you will end with P1.Sorry for confusing things:)

At 12:55am on January 26, 2016, Kathy Chantrell said…

Hi Diana,

I cast on 33 stitches but you can cast on 35 37 or 39. If you k2 p2 and K1 on the last stitch every row you will see the twisted rib. Hope this helps you:)

Hi Diana.

I have just had an epiphany of sorts....lol..

It is really just what you'd call a multiple of 4 + 1 pattern. You need to have a multiple of 4 (so that you will always finish the k2,p2 part with the p2 and then +1 so that you can end the row with a knit one. There is no need to knit into the backs of the knit stitch.

Kathy said she might see if she can find it in the pattern book again and check the name again.

Hi Diana.

I just googled a fisherman's rib and I don't think its the same as Kathy's stitch. With Kathy's, you just have to have an odd number of stitches and start each row with k2, p2 and continue on to last stitch of the row and you k1. Next row you begin again with k2,p2 and end with k1 again. There isn't any need to knit into backs of stitches or into the stitch on the row below....its all very easy and so effective.  :))

I am back to doing squares for a little while.  :))

Thanks Diana! And a happy 2016 to you too! Xx

At 2:10pm on January 19, 2016, Bev Jeffery said…

Well, I have started!!!.....knitted four rows and will get back to it later today.  :))

I am using Kathy C's twisted rib tip and am liking the look of it....better than MY k2,p2, of which I always seem to get an uneven tension.  :))

Oh my gosh, Diana!!!! I haven't even started on the orange yet. Was in a bit of a funk yesterday and didn't start them and didn't start them last night either, went to bed. Have been out walking with Ros this morning....and it rained...and rained ....for nearly 7 kms!!!!! Now I know the meaning of the saying, 'like a drowned rat'. I have a couple of appointments this morning and early arvo...so maybe will get to it later this arvo....not procrastinating, I promise....lol. Good on you!!!!
