Hi all,

The Random Knitting-Related Stuff section is intended for topics for which you can't find a home under the current forum structure. I realize this is a huge place, and that it's not immediately easy to fully fathom. Therefore I quite frequently come through this section and move topics to more appropriate areas.

This is not a mean-spirited move, nobody's getting their hand slapped, it's simply about putting content where it makes most sense. So if your post gets moved, please don't take it personally, and please understand that my intent is to keep this Random Knitting-Related Stuff section from becoming an endless dumping ground. Your post is not being intentionally relegated to the Gulag where nobody will see it. People read, fear not.

Thanks!

Clara

Hi Clara

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I drop in once or twice a day so don't have all the ins & outs figured out yet. The Active Topic things is awesome!

The active topics are a great way to keep posts from getting swept away into the black hole of the internet without being read.

You are constantly improving this forum. What can I say except a great big THANKS!

Clara has moved several of mine and thank goodness. I often fret that I picked the wrong spot. But I nowadays I never fear because Clara (wearing a knitted cape no less) is here to save the day!

Here's a tip to keep Clara from having to spend so much time moving posts: Look at all of the options before you post. Sometimes it's really obvious that the poster just dumped her post in the first place she landed, even if the subject has no relationship to the thread.

Yup - and if it's fiber/sheep/knitting related, it goes up here, if not, it goes in OT (or on your own site). A lot of times I see sheep/knitting jokes and that sort of thing in the OT, and those could go in the knitting joke section happily. But if it just made you smile, and doesn't contain sheepy goodness, down to the OT it goes.

When it applies to more than one section, either place is fine - but please pick one of those, rather than saying "I saw this shawl in a movie and want to know how to do that stitch pattern" and not putting it in "Knitting Movies" or "Lace" and plopping it in Random instead... Otherwise Random gets too crowded to search through.

This makes things easier for those of us who try to help as much as we can (so we can find your posts again) and for those that don't want to come to a knitting message board for politics, gross humor, or various other non-knitting chatter.

Though I have to say it amuses me how often spammers actually do get the correct section!

"Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color. Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense, and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable."

I'm new to this forum, and didn't see a topic I thought this would fit under. Looking for a conversion tool. Not mm to inch, but for this kind of conversion: for a pattern that says 15 stitches to 4 with size 10 needles, how many stitches could I expect to get if I use yarn that is gauged for 5.5 stitches to an inch with size 7 needles? What I'm looking for his how the needle size would be expected to change the # of stitches....any chart for that?

Thank you for taking this in the spirit in which it was intended. I appreciate it!

krwabby - I would recommend posting your question in the General Technique Questions area. It is definitely not in the right place here, but I can't move a post within a post. I'm sorry. And generally speaking the only way you can tell what kind of gauge you're going to get with a yarn using different needles is by swatching. Because even when you do use the needles recommended on the label, your gauge may still be different.

Well, now, I'm scratching my head. I posted twice to the Continental Knitting thread yesterday, and neither of them appeared. If I didn't screw up and they were moved somewhere else, is there a way to do a term search to find them and see where they went? Thanks,

Ceil

Click on your own name which takes you to your profile page, and all the threads where you recently posted will be listed there. So if your post was moved, it would show up in the new place.

There are two posts in the "Switching to Continental" thread that you made 5/11. They're both on the second page. Are those the two you mean, or did you actually make 4?

I'm glad I read this...I just put an article in Introducing Yourself which is Clueless & Lost in a Blog which probably doesn't belong there. I'll be more careful. Srigah
