1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first colours on: January 06, 2011 04:59:09 AM
It's 11:55pm 6th Jan in Australia and I'm finally finished my first colorwork project with 5 minutes to spare!! I ripped these out a total of 5 times and actually kept going, which is a record for me so far. Much praise to knitty and youtube for advice on it all. And, of course, to Craftster, whose challenge inspired me to knit a woollen accessory in the middle of summer. Can't wait til it's cold enough to wear these...

Things learnt: colour work! italian tubular cast on! kitchener stitch tubluar bind off!

Knit with Bendigo Woollen Mills sock yarn in the Endpaper Fingerless Mitts pattern by Eunny Jang in a size Large (http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2006/11/endpaper_mitts.html).

The insides...

The outsides...

Both together. Still to be blocked.

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet on the go on: July 17, 2008 04:44:43 AM
Does anyone have a pattern they could recommend for doing while out and about? We're heading to the Melbourne Film Festival soon and I want to have something to do while waiting for sessions etc.
I'm an beginner to intermediate crocheter and would love advice for people who also crochet while commuting places.

Is that acrylic stuffing stuff polyfil washable? I'm making a baby toy and I think washing will be required....
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / What to make for a new mum (or three)? on: April 22, 2008 03:43:14 PM
Three of my friends are having babies at the end of the year. I really want to make them things that they will love and use and not get put in a drawer and forgotten. But I also don't want to spend ages making something adorable but only useful for 2 minutes.

What useful things do first time parents need?  Huh
5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Types of yarn to use (Australia) on: March 05, 2008 04:23:13 PM
I'm in Australia, I just started crochet and I'm confused by yarn. Completely and utterly! Does anyone know of a good reference guide to yarns and how particular yarns (like those suggested in HH) would correspond to other yarns that I don't have to order online?
Is there a system for yarns in Australia anymore? i remember yarn shopping with my grandmother and having to find a particular ply of wool but now ply means something else beyond weight? or something?

I got something called DK from Lincraft which is an acrylic (cheap and nasty for first projects I thought), the info for it is:
Our signature brand of 8ply acrylic yarn. Available in 32 colours.
Composition: Acrylic
Grams: 100gm per ball
Meterage per Ball: 320 Metres
Tension: (10x10cm) 24 stitches x 30 rows
Needle size: 4.00mm
Care Instructions: Machine washable 30 degrees. Do not bleach. Do not tumble dry. Cool Iron

Would this be good for either the sweet pea shawl or fit to be tied?
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Curling on: February 22, 2008 03:18:22 PM
Hi all, this is my first post at the end of my first week of crochet. I can do the stitches okay and I've only been making squares to practice the stitches. BUT they keep curling up! I have changed my tension a zillion different ways and have no idea what I'm doing wrong. I'm using a 5.0mm hook and 8ply wool. Help!
