Pushing Daisies and Gun Cozies

[mood |happyhappy]

Hi! I am behind on "Pushing Daisies". I just started watching it and have seen the first two episodes. I was roped in by the knitting. :-P

Okay, are those actually socks for the reward money? I looked at them fairly carefully, and they look like mittens without thumbs.

I am a beginner + in knitting (I have just started using DPNs), but I am somewhat more proficient in crocheting. I am probably going to look for a crochet pattern for a piece of some kind of pie. :-P

Anyway, I am glad this group is here! I got here via the bigdamnknitters community.

I'm glad to have found a place for people who enjoy knitting as much as I and Pushing Daisies! =D I realized last episode that there really is nothing more enjoyable and relaxing in my life at the moment than knitting as I'm watching. a bunch of people would probably think that it would be problematic because then all of your attention is focused on one or the other, but I like it because then, if I feel I didn't absorb PD enough the first time around, I can watch it again and enjoy it just as much!!

No real purpose to this post, just wanted to say 'Hi!'

Knitted gun holsters in theory [Oct. 25th, 2007|01:45 pm]

[Tags|, ]

Hello folks, i was asked to post this here as its very own shiny thread. Please keep in mind while the method works all numbers made up in this are fictional and purely out of my head to illustrate how to calculate the numbers.

To make knitted gunholsters,I think the same method I used to knit a serenity spaceship http://www.texasartcat.com/knitted_serenity/  would work even for beginner knitters

here is what I would do, be grab a paper and pencil, a skein of yarn (with the needle size it suggests), and a holster read what the gauge suggested is and do the math..

For instance 16 sti= 4" 24 rows= 4" you can assume that roughly 4 stitches = 1 row, and 6 rows = 1 inch.

grab a holster from an army surplus, or even better get a gunholster leather kit from the craft store, and take measurements, I would measure the circumference every 1" or so.

say you end up with, 8" at the opening.. well according to your yarn gauge chart that means 4 sti x 8 inches= 32 stitches, an inch down the holster say the measurement is the same, you can safely assume you do not increase or decrease and simply knit purl or whatever stitch you think looks good for that 1" or 6 rows. 

Eventually you will get to a point it will decrease rather dramatically, say it suddenly goes from 8 inches wide to 5, well 8 inches - 5 inches is 3 inches, soo 3 inches x 4 sti / inch= decrease 12 stitches.. to do so since its all on one side, I would start a row by binding off the 12 stitches, and continue knitting .   

If I get a chance, I have a makerov holster at home I could math out for folks, its a small and simple holster.

Or any kind of pie, really.

Dad's Blueberry Pie pattern from MagKnits

Sorry, just had to post that.
We need to get together and collaborate on making a pattern for those gun holsters.

M'name is Sara, by the way.
And how are you all doing today?
Might I ask your name?
