Wow! I'm in awe of your wicked knitting skills! Your gloves look absolutely brilliant!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: THE GENERIC BOYFRIEND GIFT THREAD: A How-To! on: December 28, 2009 10:55:00 PM
I also need some help! I've only been dating my boyfriend for a few weeks, and he got me a ball of yarn of christmas(Yes, I know it isn't much, but I love to knit, and I love yarn, so it works out rather well), but I have no idea what to give him back! We didn't really talk about gifts...
He loves computers, Star Trek, Dungeons and Dragons, and Art. He also has a horrid sense of direction (we tease him about it all the time) and Dr. Who.
I can knit, and make paper crafts, but thats about it.
I don't want to make it too lovey-dovey because we haven't been together very long, but I do want it to be meaningful. I was thinking of knitting him a scarf, but I'm wary of the curse.
Thanks a bunch.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Argyle Bag Pattern? on: June 30, 2009 10:50:15 PM
Hi there!
I want to knit my friend a bag for his birthday. He loves argyle, knitted items, knitting, dice and a few other things. My idea was to knit an argyle bag and stitch pockets into it for knitting needles, dice and other things.
The only problem I'm running into is that I can't find an argyle pattern! I need something that isn't for socks or sweaters, and that's relatively simple.
Can someone help me find a pattern? I've googled it and come up with nothing. His birthday is in two weeks(I'm a fast knitter), so I need this pattern soon-ish.
Thanks in advance.

That is absolutely beautiful! It makes me want to knit one, but I doubt I'll have the patience.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: what do you recommend for a beginner? on: April 13, 2009 05:07:18 PM
I would say that the easiest thing for a beginner to start with would be a scarf. Cast on 20 stitches, knit till you're almost out of yarn, and then cast off. You can modify the pattern for spring by using a fingering weight yarn and big needles(I've done this a few times and it looks incredibly lacey). There are alot of scarf patterns online, just google beginner scarf pattern and enjoy!
I hope you have fun on your knitting adventures.

I know this is an old thread, but I was wondering if you had the pattern up yet? I would love to make this for my best friend, as a grad present. Thanks!

Oh my. These are prettyful!
How did you get the tops so round? Did you just sew them that way, or were they shaped as you knit?
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Puzzle Pieces, An Endpaper Roll, An old Board game and a of a lot of fabric! on: February 12, 2009 09:21:11 PM
Hi there!
I have alot of stuff, that I've accumulated. My mom works at the newspaper, so she brought home an endpaper roll for a project, but it never got used. I also saved an old scooby doo board game from the trash, and a huge puzzle. The pieces are the size of my hand. I have various fabrics that have been given to me, and only a few are the right size to make clothing out of. I have plastic water bottles, and wooden letters and lots of glue.
Anyone have any ideas?

10  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: My FAVORITE Actor OR Singer ALTOIDS TIN + a goodie SWAP on: January 23, 2009 10:27:08 PM
I really want to join this swap but...I don't know what an altoids tin is. I've never seen them in stores around here(I live in Calgary). Is there something else I can use instead, or does it absolutely have to be an altoids tin?
