• Any sock knitters out there?

    Hello, I am knitting my first sock. So far it has been successful, with a few minor mistakes. I have come to the point where I do not know what to do.

    Hello, I am knitting my first sock. So far it has been successful, with a few minor mistakes. I have come to the point where I do not know what to do. I have a hunch on what 'continue pattern as established' means, but I just need some reinforcement. I just picked up the stitches on the heel flap selvedges. I have a total of 78 stitches, 30 on my instep (Needle 3) and 24 on Needle 1 and Needle 2 (which split the heel stitches in two) Here is the section of the pattern I am on. Gusset ... ... ... Rnd 1: On Needle 1, k2tog, knit to end; on Needle 2, knit to last 2 sts, ssk; on Needle 3, cont in established patt-2 sts dec'd. Rnd 2: On Needle 1 and Needle 2, knit; on Needle 3, cont in established patt. Rep Rnds 1 and 2 eight more times-60 sts rem; 15 sts each on Needle 1 and Needle 2, 30 instep sts on Needle 3. What do the instructions on Needle 3, Rnd 1 mean? I assume that I just continue the stitch pattern that is already on Needle 3, as it is? (Which is just to knit across the 30 sts) What do the instructions on Needle 3, Rnd 2 mean? I'd appreciate all the help I can get! Thank you.

    Asaalamu alaikum I have a sincere question I want to ask you all. I attend a University where our MSA is very important to me and so many others. Alhamdullilah I have changed a lot as a person and my faith has become stronger. I am finding the middle path. I see this life as nothing but a dream. So here is the issue, bear with me: Someone told me that people were telling a boy in the MSA that two other girls are telling people that he is into me and that we have a thing. This is false - there is nothing between us and it is a rumour. He is a very patient, very quiet, and very respectful individual mashAllah. A family man and appreciates sincerity. He sits for a long time after prayer - he sees this dunya s nothing but a dream. I've learned this through discussions at University with many other people while we were both there. I don't know how else to describe him. Basically, I respect him very much. He is always respectful around me and everyone else, picking up my books , frequently buying me things. He lowers his gaze and does not touch me or flirt with me at all. So I felt bad about these 3 diffferent things he bought me over a span of a quarter so I decided I would buy him a thankyou gift because of this guilt. On the same day, right after I give him this thankyou gift, I found out about this rumour. When I was giving him the gift, he said Salaam prior to me saying anything as he saw me first. He was respectful and didn't say anything rude. He didn't seem bothered from me, but maybe he was embarassed about the rumour? (Reflecting on the situation) When I gave him the gift he said "I do not deserve this. But, he also smiled and laughed when he saw it as it was something from a book he really admires. He doesn't know that I know about the rumour, but I do think he has a feeling I know. I don't want to embarass him, we are not close friends, we are just respectful towards eachother and I appreciate his kindness. I just feel really bad and I am afraid that he is bothered with me? Can someone give me feedback from their perspective? Is he angry with me? I know I didn't intend anything wrong but subhanAllah I feel terrible for some reason. When my female friend told me about the situation, I sincerely cried because I was worried that he felt upset, or uncomfortable because rumours were being spread about him. If you knew him, you would understand how much relationships with everyone mean to him. If you met this gentleman you would be in awe out of his respect for everyone. Everyone respects him and he loves Allah so much he was so bothered when he found out someone was saying that he was immodest and 'going out with me'. I was uncomfortable too because I do not know how to act around him anymore. i don't want to act but I'm a little bit nervous because of the potential emotions. I get the vibe that he admires me, but I don't believe in dating and relationships before marriage. I also don't believe in creating fitna. My intentions are clean alhamdullilah I am sure of this. But please tell me what is going on in his head because I am embarassed and I do not know how to react when I see the MSA again. I might break down for hurting him unintentionally. Even though my close female friend told me I was doing nothing wrong and same for him. Do you know what I mean? JAK. He is 2 years older than me. I do admire him but I pray every night to Allah to get him out of my head so that I can become a better Muslima. Please help me? JAK.

    So I'm not here to ask you how to lose fat, but I am here to ask you if you have ever felt hopeless about this. The heaviest I've ever weighed is 155 pounds. Right now I am at 138-140 Pounds. I ran cross country in high school ( I just graduated ) for two years and changed my eating habits to healthy foods. I had trouble at first with eating smaller portions even with healthy foods and wasn't seeing any results. Lately, however, I have been eating much less. The problem is, I am anemic. And I also work at a grocery store part time job and get very dizzy. My main question is though...I feel hopeless a bit. I just looked at my body in the bathroom and there is just too much on my body seeing as I used to be a size 0-2 or sometimes a 2-4 slim depending on the jeans.... i'd rather be a 2-4 though. Did you feel hopeless? Will I reach my goal? Did you? silly question, I know. but I just need some motivation please! Let me know your feelings during your weight loss and how you felt on your journey.

    I need motivation. I lost 10 pounds in cross country. I am now 141 pounds and 5'5 but I have abs from running and lost more fat that the scale is telling me. I gained muslce, but I still have lots of fat on my body because I am naturally a size 2-4 but now I'm wearing a size 6-8. I just need motivation. What keeps you going? I always keep it up for about a week and then something happens over the weekend. I also bought DDR but I havn't played it in a while because I've played every song..lol. Okay but yes, please help. I was thinking maybe I could personal train someone and work out with them? I was also thinking Hey my next goal is 130, so I'm just going to run these ten pounds off and eat less for not a loonggg time and Then I'll set my next goal. But honestly, my goal isn't even the number. It is just to lose this fat. That's all I want. To get rid of this fat. So what do you do? Maybe I'm just rambling. I don't know. I also run with a head dress on because of my religious beliefs, and I will be honest, that on some days, because of the heat, i do not run outside. however, i have run my races in 90 degree weather and survived. so yep I think i might be fine. What do you think? any tips?

    My mother received 3 different 1099 MISC forms for working at 3 different schools. She did not receive a W-2. She is married, filing separately, and has 6 dependents. The total amount of those 3 forms was under 10,000 dollars. They didn't withold any taxes at all. Also, she didn't receive any taxable interest from a 1099-INT because we are interest free. How do I know which form she needs to file? 1040EZ? 1040A? 1040? I have a feeling I have to file a 1040A, but I'm not sure. I've just taken consumer education and learned how to file my own taxes on a 1040EZ, but I don't know how to do a 1099 MISC. It would be great if you could help me. My mom and I can't find any help, and can't afford to have a preparer file the taxes. Thanks for all your help.

    I'm in the process of losing weight. I'm a female, 5'5" and 17 years old. I am also a cross country runner, and run track.. But I am not happy with my body because I weight 145 pounds and I don't feel healthy in general. I want to look great and get toned like I used to be. I used to weigh 120. I'm an emotional eater. And I hate it because it isn't healthy for me. I was never really like this and there was a period of time when I was chronically depressed. But I'm changing now. I at least want to lose about 20 pounds. I run every day, and I eat oatmeal for breakfast. I eat a salad, or a sandwich (whole wheat bread) for lunch. Then I have whatever my mom makes for dinner, but I have a small portion of it. I'm not starving myself. But I am wondering how long it will take to lose about 5 pounds if I keep this up? I know everyone's body is different, but how long did it take you?
