Hi everyone,

as the community's mod I have to apologize for being slow at reacting to recent spam posts in the comm. Also wanted to let you know that due to the latest ongoing slew of spam I've temporarily switched the comm to moderated posting. I'll try to let proper entries through as fast as possible, but feel free to poke me via lj message if it's taking too long for your post to show up.

And to add some knitterly content to this entry, here's a rec: KnitHacker is a great site that showcases inspiring and sometimes strange knitting designs, fannish and otherwise. :)

Netherland's Scarf. Am I doing this right?

Hello~ I'm knitting a my first scarf for Netherlands (from Hetalia) for my brother and I'm having a mini crisis with the outcome of my rows.

First of all, as background, I'm knitting it vertically, for one. But this way I only have to switch colors four times instead of a billion. XD These are my dimensions:

5 stripes; blue, white, blue, white, blue. 294 stitches per row (7 ft). 8 rows per stripe.

I'm using 2, 19", size 9 circulars and garter stitching. The yarn is Vanna's Choice.

So. The reason I'm freaking out is because I just finished what I assumed to be 8 rows on my second color (white), but the yarn finished on the other side. Here are some pictures to illustrate:

So can anyone tell me if I have indeed stitched 8 rows of each? Is it normal for the yarn to end on a different end? I'm I freaking out over nothing?? HELP.

EDIT: Thank you!! I counted the CO with my rows. orz I'm taking a row out so that it'll be even. c: Thank you again~~

A questionnaire and some crafts to share

Hi everyone,
I'm a lurker, crafter, and graduate student studying fandom crafting for my masters thesis, and I'm doing a short informal questionnaire about fan craft over at my journal. If anyone happens to be interested and wants to answer a few questions, I'd really appreciate it!

You can find the questionnaire here.
