1441  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: double knitting - what am I doing wrong? on: October 23, 2009 01:39:09 AM
Does this video help?

http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/advanced-techniques (there's one about double knitting futher down on the page)

I've never done double knitting but it might be easier seeing it than trying to understand by reading it.

My package to pseudo pix should arrive soon hopefully... It's in her country, and it's sorted so hopefully it'll be delivered today or tomorrow. *bounces up and down*

I got the flu shot today so my shoulder is a bit sore. Doesn't stop me from knitting Wink
1445  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: heart pattern? on: October 19, 2009 09:04:21 AM
I found a pattern that was apparently published in the magasince Knit.1, Winter 2006/07. From the comments by people knitting it the pattern seems difficult to follow with some errors in it (and it looks as if it's knitted in the round)

My favourite organ: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTwomb.html (uterus) Not anatomically correct, but cute. It's knitted in the round but it's not a very hard pattern to knit.

I think you should give dpns a try. They aren't as scary as it looks. It is possible to freeform patterns when knitting in the round even if it's not as straight forward as with crochet.

Most patterns like this will probably be in the round, and while you can modify them for knitting flat it's probably more of a headache than to learn to master the double pointed needles.

EDIT: Could this be something? http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/samhain05/curseyourbf.htm It's just colourwork and not 3d so it should be simple enough.

Honestly? I think you're trying to fix something that's not broken. If you get something that's not suitable, either because of personal taste or because of size issues, there are several options already. I know some people offer things that doesn't fit/they don't use in the offer what you have swap for example (with credit given to the original craftster in the cases I've seen). Say you get a lovely hat in the wrong size for example; giving it to a friend or child you know would be the prefect way to give it some love. I think everyone crafting fitted items know that sizing can be a bit of hit and miss, especially if you're fairly new at it and the person you're crafting for is very different in size compared to you.

Another option is to gift the item to friends or family. Come on, even if you don't like pink/green/fun fur/handbags/earrings you should know someone who does.

Also. What you're trying to describe (I think? I had a hard time reading/understanding parts of it) is a neverending swap where things keep getting added to the stash and picked from it, and as I understand it those swaps are not allowed for several very good reasons. I also think that swapping items to get FoC status would become really messy. There is an angel system in place and there have even been swaps designed to let flakers redeem themselves easily so I don't think another way to angel would be necessary.

Basically the "offer what you have" swap would fill the function I *think* you're wanting but without the problems.

Pseudo_pix package is in Gothenburg now according to the tracker Smiley I really hope it gets there before the weekend...
1448  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Useful ideas for things I just can't throw away!!! on: October 15, 2009 04:06:28 AM
I use alcohol swabs to clean up with. They're great for making sure a prceline or glass item is squeaky clean before starting to paint on it for example, and it can be used to remove excess glue.

Woo! I managed to send today despite the fact that this cold is making me achy all over. Success! Then I realised I forgot to include a postcard and the letter explaining it all. *facepalm* Might have to send the postcard later or something Smiley
