11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Project advice? on: May 12, 2008 06:11:11 PM
I bought some beautiful yarn (woolen, unplied, variegated, worsted-ish weight) on sale, without a project in mind. I would like to knit it into a big square, to use as a shawl or perhaps to throw over the back of a couch. I was thinking of doing this with large needles (17s?), and possibly with fringe around the edges.

Does anyone have advice, or a pattern like this? What kind of stitch would be best? Garter or seed?

Thanks!

The yarn end in the armpit has since been taken care of Smiley

This was intended to be a stash-buster. Unfortunately, I miscalculated and ended up with more yarn than I started with. But I got a warm and neat-looking vest out of it!

Paper crafts aren't really my thing, but I would like to glue some fabric onto the plastic cover of a binder, and I'm wondering what type of glue would be the best. I would appreciate any advice! Thanks.

The Scoop Neck Vest by Blue Sky Alpacas. I substituted Lion Brand microspun and Paton's Lacette because I'm a cheapskate, but it turned out beautifully. It is also very warm.

My name is Amanda.  I go to UNC-Asheville (about to graduate), I'm 21, and I'm studying criminology and math. My roommate encouraged me to join this site, and I am looking forward to participating in swaps and such!

I knit, make jewelry, and sew, but I am open to learning new crafts as free time permits...
