1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Star stitch (Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks) on: July 07, 2008 08:06:15 PM
I'm making the Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks scarf and I'm having trouble with the star stitch. (Pattern: http://atimetoknit.blogspot.com/2007/10/holding-hands-feeding-ducks-pattern.html)
The part I don't understand is what to do with the p3tog stitch that I originally left on the left hand needle. Do I pick it up on my right hand needly after wrapping the yarn? or do I p it together with the other three stitches?
TIA for your help (:
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / What to do with pokemon cards... on: May 11, 2008 01:09:46 PM
I'm working on a messenger bag, actually, all with clear packing tape because I'm a masochist. No, I just don't have contact paper so I've got good clear packing tape to work with.

In the mean time, I made some wallets. I've only got pictures of one of them, btu i think you get the gist of it. My old wallet(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=198711.msg2107772#msg2107772) was falling apart because I'm rather abusive to it, so I made a new one:




when folded, Charmander and Poliwag are visible. =]
Thanks for looking!

and killing a dogwood in the process. You know, on the clematis.org website they say that clematis are difficult to care for and hard to grow and there's this rigourous regime of fertilizers you have to use and switch every 6 months... we do nothing to care for ours and it grows beautifully. There are some other flower bushes around the house and I got shots of a few of those as well...
The entire album can be found here: Photobucket album
Here are a couple of my favourites:













I want to choose one for the macro challenge but I can't decide which photo to enter. None of them have been modified, and I think I'll just do a little colour/saturation touchups before I enter it once I decide.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / so I thought it'd be a good idea to quadruple strand lion brand homespun... on: March 21, 2008 01:10:49 PM
its really thick, and really really warm. and long.
I grabbed my P hook and went at it to make a scarf...
here it issssss, on my sister, who is about 5 feet tall.

sorry the picture is sideways =/
note that norelle is in the background XD there was an ANTM marathon we were watching all day. and our odd, one armed computer chair.

you wouldn't think that with holes this big...

that it would be warm. but its about an inch thick, so it is incredibly warm/ big air pockets to hold in warmth. (:

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / armwarmer andddd scarf on: March 20, 2008 11:17:32 PM
yes, armwarmer in the singular. I made it in what, seventh grade [I was what, 12 or 13]... I never did the other one. it was like SSS, only it was SAS. funnily enough, both are methods to proving congruency of a triangle.



so I had yarn leftover. it'd been stashed for a while and I was like hmm,. what to do with this yarn... so i found a lovely drop stitch pattern which worked up incredibly quickly (http://christine.typepad.com/photos/completed_projects_2006/drop_stitch_scarf_011106.html) and did it.
people say it looks like water.
more pictures will come when my internet decides to work like it should.


sorry its sideways. (and a sneak peek at my latest crocheted project!)
its not very long, but its still pretty warm.
stitchwork! the yarn is just som red heart in multi blue.



I also made a palindrome scarf, striped, which I've given away already but will post if it gets cold enough for my friend to wear it (:
oh, and a police line scarf back in december. I'll post that when I get pictures of it (:
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn weight equivalency on: February 22, 2008 07:49:30 PM
I know that 2 strands sport=1 strand worsted and 2 strands worsted=1 strand bulky, but do 2 strands bulky=1 strand super bulky?
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / bromstick/jiffy lace and elasticity on: January 30, 2008 05:11:28 PM
how elastic is it? I just need it to be horizontally elastic, and my mind is telling me that yeah, it should be, but I'cve been wrong many a time when it comes to crocheting. TIA for your help!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / felting entrelac or cables? on: January 16, 2008 07:29:52 PM
... has anyone done it? how does it turn out?

here's the dilemma, basically. my friend's birthday is soon, and I don't have time to go out and get new yarn. but she said she saw a grey cabled scarf at a store that her mom wouldn't let her get. the thing is, the only grey yarn I have is 100% wool. so how do cables felt up?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / yarn fiber and warmth? on: January 08, 2008 02:48:54 PM
Hey everyone!
For the last couple days, we've had unseasonably warm weather (mid 70s. yeah. it IS january).  It's going to get cold fast, and I was wondering what fibers you all would say are warmer than others. Does alpaca really insulate better than wool or plain old acrylic? are they really that advantageous over cotton? what about other fibers: corn, nylon, etc?
thanks in advance for your help!
