Ok, I've ventured into the world of knitting gloves. Fingerless, to be sure, but still. However, I've come across a problem. At least, it is for me, since I can't seem to find anywhere that can show me/explain to me in terms I can comprehend (did I mention that I have extreme difficulty understanding patterns and stuff?). I'm trying to make a pair of fingerless gloves going top down. This wouldn't be a big deal if I just wanted to do a buttonhole for a thumb. But, I thought I'd live dangerously and try an actual thumb..gusset? Or whatever they're called. Anyway, like you'd have on a normal glove (or like on fetching, to give reference). I don't know when to make the bit for the thumb. Help?
Ok, so not a football fan myself, but my BIL is. And for Christmas, I will attempt something I've yet to try. Sew a blanket/throw for him, in his team's (the Beavers, OSU) colors. It's in no pill fleece, (at least, I think it's called fleece), one side orange, one black. However...and this is where I'm coming to you all for.... it's just plain, solid colors. I was hoping to figure out something to do to embellish it. The obvious thing would be a patch/applique of some sort, but I can't get any Beaver patches. I also struck out on getting Beaver printed...anything really. So...suggestions? I don't want to give a boring blanket lol. Oh, he's a man's man, not into frilly things. It can't contain any form of wool (allergies!) and has to be baby friendly. I think that's about it. I look forward to your suggestions, and thank you in advance for your help
Ok, I've tried looking through the previous posts that have fudge in them. However, I couldn't find it. If I missed it, please direct me to the post. If I didn't miss it because the answer isn't there...then I beg you to read on and help a girl out
I was thinking about fudge today, and also about coffee. And, more importantly, incorporating the coffee flavor into the fudge. How would I go about it? Oh, no microwave fudge, please. We use the Kraft mellow jar recipe (you know the one I mean, right?), so any adaptations to that would be most welcome! C'mon, I'm not that crazy, am I? Coffee flavored fudge?
Ok. So I have been (or rather, am in) a few swaps now. I'm still relatively new, but I'm loving it so far. However, I've seen several people mention that they're sending their partners questionaires. Above and beyond the ones you already fill out to get into the swap. So... I would like to know the questions you ask your swap partners. I can't be the only person out there who draws a blank on what to ask . Thanks! I can't wait to see what all you come up with
So I just picked up 4 skeins of Manos Del Uruguay at St Vincent dePaul's. It has something on it that looks like either styrophoam or something glittery. Please tell me I did just skore some good yarn, and not some icky bugs or something
I know I've done these before. I used them for the Voodoo gloves from Knitty. But it's been a while, and now I'm stuck. I re-read the advice I got last time, but it doesn't make sense to me anymore either. The link Voodoo provides, doesn't work anymore, and I have no visual aids on this one. Help?!?!
I was just given some yarn today, by my yarn angel . Among it was some Wool Ease. I've never used it before, but I'm in love with the coloring (Denim Twist). I was wondering whether that yarn would be good to use for socks?? I realize they'd be a bit chunkier than your average socks made with sockyarn, and I know they won't felt due to it mainly being acrylic. I just want regular type socks.
Hi, someone from Holland was asking about crafty magazines in the US or something? I can't for the life of me remember which thread it was in, so I figured I'd take a chance and post a new one. Feel free to delete if it is inapropriate. There's a magazine here called Crafts 'n Things, which has different types of crafts in it. I think that's what you were looking for. Try asking about it at the American Bookstore, or else google it online and see if they will ship it to you
I'm trying to do these socks and I'm stuck! I've gotten to the heel flap, or rather, I've made it. I've got my 36 rows and now am supposedly starting on turning the heel. This is only my second sock, my first used a short row heel. This one...I just can not make sense of. How am I supposed to make 2 socks on 2 circs, when part of my sock is stuck on both needles? And how on earth does the math work for these? k18 in the first row, then p5, k6, p7 in the next ones....I'm soooo lost. Help?!?
