1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Shrug Size Troubles on: December 30, 2008 03:22:06 PM
I'm having issues.
I want to knit myself a shrug, but the biggest bust measurement I can find is 40 inches.
I have issues having ALL of my clothes fit, not only because I'm plus size, but because I'm also erm...Well endowed.
Does anyone have a shrug pattern that can be adapted for a 40 inch body with a 49 inch bust?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sweater Stone vs. Dollar Store Pumice? on: March 28, 2008 01:10:39 PM
Alright, I've been looking at KP's sweater stone for a while and wondering if the ones I can get at the dollar store would work the same way.

Does anyone know?
Or is it worth the extra 7 bucks?
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Environmentally Friendly DIY Cleaners? on: February 27, 2008 06:27:33 PM
I'm not exactly sure where to post this, but I'm on a mission.
I leave for college in a few months.
I'd love to make my own floor/bathroom/whatever cleaners.
Chemicals play havoc with my skin and such.

Anyone have any favorite recipies?

I don't have any pets or anything, sorry for the confusion Smiley
There might be a hamster in the equation at one point, but as of yet, nothing ^.^
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lifeline on KnitPicks Options? on: February 22, 2008 07:48:17 PM
So, the key slot is big enough to get a lifeline through, which I've heard people raving about.
However...I tried it the other day, knitted my row, and the lifeline just...came out.

Am I missing something?
I must be...
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Q Wristband? on: February 06, 2008 06:21:42 PM
Alright, so here's the story:

My best friend on the planet is obsessed with the letter Q.
Don't ask why, it's a very long, confusing story that after 3 years, I still don't understand.

In any case, I was perusing the interweb looking for something to make for him for his birthday (which is in May).
I found this awesome knitted wristband that had the letter Q on it.
Firefox decided to wipe my bookmarks and I can't find it again.
Does anyone know what pattern I'm talking about?
I'd love to see it again!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fun Fur on: January 20, 2008 07:28:19 PM
Alright, here's the story:
I leave for college in August.
As in moving.  As in limited space.
I have an underbed tote thing that I want to get all of my yarn to fit in by then.
I'm well on my way.
I got all of my yarn to fit in it without smooshing it or space bags or any of that crap.
Except the fun fur/other novelty garbage.
There's about a craft tote full (roughly 20 balls of the stuff).

The problem I'm presented with is this:
I can't throw it out - That's blasphemy.
I can't make anything I can think of with it - I only have 1 ball of each kind.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Quick hand fix? on: January 13, 2008 06:14:16 PM
Alright, here's the story.
I live in a cold climate, so when winter strikes, small rodents like to look for warm places.
My room/basement has mice.

I've spent the last two days cleaning EVERYTHING, ripping out carpet, dusting, scrubbing and just going nuts.
In this time, I've gone through almost a full bottle of Windex.

Well, contrary to the belief of the dad in Big Fat Greek Wedding, Windex doesn't help cure Windex-based ailments.
My hands are cracking and bleeding.
Lotion burns (I've tried everything, even the baby's lotions burn so bad I have to wash them off).

What can I use - that is generally around the house - to save my skin???
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fantastic Yarn find! on: January 04, 2008 02:09:44 PM
I'm sorry, I was excited Smiley

I was at Meijer yesterday getting some groceries and stuff.
I stopped down the yarn clearance aisle.  They keep the cotton near the clearance, so 2 birds with one stone, right? :p

Well, I looked over at the rack and OMG.
Right there in front of me was a PERFECT CONDITION SKEIN of superwash 75% merino 25% nylon fingering weight Lion Brand Magic Stripes for A DOLLAR FIFTY!!!

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Magic Loop Length? on: January 01, 2008 09:14:03 PM
Alright, I'm ordering myself a set of Options interchangeable circs.
I want to magic loop with it, so I want to get another cable to do so with.
However, I don't know what length to get.

On the site they have
and 60"

What size would be best?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Keeping pets out of yarn? on: December 30, 2007 05:16:41 PM
Alright, here's my delimma. My dog gets in to EVERYTHING.
She's a German Shepherd and I don't really have anything she can't gnaw through.

To date she's destroyed 3 rubbermaid tubs to get at my yarn.

I came downstairs to my room today to find my yarn splurge (alpaca, soy, cashmere, and bamboo yarn) strewn across the floor cause she tore through what I had it in and got at it.

So, aside from stashing it somewhere, which has obviously failed, how can I keep my dog out of my yarn?Huh
