That's a really fantastic weave you've got going on there!

I think you did a nice job.

From a design standpoint, perhaps if your center band were not as wide it would flatter you in a different way. 

Good work

With the block you won, I'm guessing your best bet is to do a wet wrap of buckram, then cover with fabric.  If you can find a milliner in your area and ask questions, that might be one route.  Have you done millinery before?
4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Baby's First Tattoo - no seams - pattern help! on: January 30, 2011 10:30:44 AM
I don't remember the exact pattern instructions, but it really shouldn't mess with the shaping.  Just make sure you remember to adjust for the fact that you didn't cast on as many stitches.  I always use markers where the side seams should be just to remind myself.

Thanks!  She is pretty.  I've never owned a cat before and it was an interesting adjustment.

With the sweaters, I've figured out that I have to put it over her head and when she's ready, she'll figure out how to get her paws through, so it ends with fewer kitty scratches!

So, yeah... I put this in the wrong forum initially... I'll put it here instead.

Okay, so I'm sorta horrified with myself that I've turned into this person, but I'm justifying it with... I'm moving to Chicago and knitting things with my yarn is better than transporting yarn, no?

So yeah, I thought it would be funny to knit my cat a hoodie when I saw thishttp://www.craftleftovers.com/blog/archives/774 pattern. I had some cotton yarn, so I gave it a go.  And it was hilarious.  Then I had some sock yarn laying around, so I doubled it up, modified the pattern and knit her another one.  She's not as crazy about it, but seems quite contented at the moment.   I also decided to knit some balls and throw some jingle bells and feathers so she can play with fun things not mouse-shaped.  Those she frickin loves, which makes me contented  Smiley


 Keep in mind, I was too eager to try the damned thing on her that I took pics before I wove in all the loose ends.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / VK Off Center Zip Cardi on: October 24, 2010 07:42:46 AM
I've been out of the knitting/craftster world for a while, but I haven't seen anyone post anything about the Off Center Zip Cardi from VK Fall 2010.  I love, love, loved it and it was one of the reasons I plunked down the money for the mag.  Since I'm considering a move from NYC to Chicago, I'm on a budget  Undecided and had to go with acrylic yarn for this project, since the yarn I really wanted would've set me back around $80.  The knitting was fairly easy, but I was lazy and didn't take the time to adjust the pattern to not have to seam things.  So the sewing of the pieces is what took the most time.

I know it would drape differently with a natural yarn, but overall, I can't complain.
