1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What sizes does Interweave Knits offer? on: January 26, 2007 05:58:47 PM
They gernerally offer their patterns up to 46 or 48 so you'd do well with them.  They are much better than Vogue knitting for that.

My favorite too   Wink  And I even have some cascade 220 in my stash.  I'll have to see if I have enough to make it.  It'll have to be stripes.  I really shouldn't start another project but I haven't felted anything in a while and miss it.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Yarnholic Seeking to Start a Support Group on: July 13, 2005 03:40:48 PM
I applied for membership as well.  I haven't bought any yarn in about 2 weeks but that's pretty good for me.  So now I'm going to use up what I have until it's all gone or I pay off my credit card.  Which ever happens first.  I have yarn for about 8 sweaters in my stash and enough for a dozen scarves.  So if I'm not buying yarn but using what I have does that make me a cotton or wool member?  I'll take a photo of my stash and post it on my blog.... nothing quite like public humiliation.  Undecided

Count me in for the Yarn-a-holics group.  Since I started knitting sweaters my stash has exploded!  You just need so much yarn for a sweater.  And I love the web ring idea with different badges to indicate if you've bought yarn in the last month, 2 months, etc.  I'll strive to be cashmere  Roll Eyes

I love elann's 100%alpaca.  But it is very warm and not really springy.  It does drape really well and makes really yummy scarves.  Here is a review of the yarn from another knitting forum....

This is quite timely.  I just finished a sophie bag in a blue green color and am starting a pink one.  I think I'll be making about 8 of them by christmas.  So if anyone wants to see the progress...

It's a really quick fun project... and they turn out quite well.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting books - which is best? on: September 28, 2004 03:43:49 PM
I own both and think Felted knits is the better book.  I have made a few items from felted knits and haven't made any from knit one felt too yet (although there are a couple on my to do list).  Felted knits strikes me as a bit more classic and the other as a bit more trendy.  But you could skip both and do a search for Fiber Trends patterns and pick and choose.  They have great felted patterns.  I've heard great things about the felted clogs pattern.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: saying no to stash on: August 27, 2004 05:04:20 PM
i have declared that my knitting stash is necessary to my creative endeavours. it isn't shop-a-holism, it is a foundation for artistic growth Smiley


I have quite a stash.  I've been knitting for about 2 years and really love yarn.  There are so many different pretty fuzzy kinds.  I actually agree with the above.  My stash is required for my artistic groth.  It's not that I can't pass up great yarn on sale.  I need to organize what I have just to make sure I haven't forgotten what's in there.

10  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Shaving felted marsupial bag on: July 27, 2004 06:43:06 PM
I was also wondering if anyone here knew of any types of yarn that felted up less fuzzy. The LYS lady told me to try yarns without mohair, but maybe someone has a specific brand they know of from experience...?

My favorite non-fuzzy yarn for felting so far is cascade 220

good stuff and tons of colors.  I use it doubled and knit on  #15 needles.  creates a nice firm fabric.
