Hello, So my mom requested salt and pepper shakers for Christmas. The ones I got are very plain - like the kind you would see in any restaurant. I wanted to make them a little special/add a handmade touch so I figured I would etch them. Since I've run out of Xmas funds, I'm pretty much limited to etching since I already own the stuff.
but . . . I have no idea what to etch on them besides "S" and "P," etc. it's not a big working surface - maybe about 3" high by 2" around.
Hi, I wanted to buy some clock movements and I'm thinking there must be a website where they're cheaper in bulk (vs. going to JoAnns or Michaels). I've been searching but without luck. I just want the regular little ones that take a battery. If you have any suggestions, could you let me know? Thanks!
I have been clicking and searching on both this and the crochet board, but I can't find the post I'm looking for. It was a lace baby blanket that had the whole alphabet in the center. Does anyone know where it would be?
I've been toiling away on socks from the same old printout several times now. In the past I was working with things like dealing with tiny needles, correcting gauge, picking up stitches figuring out kitchener stitch, etc. I knit about 4 socks from this pattern, but last time had an odd problem where after the heel was done and I was knitting up the foot, merrily decreasing away, all of a sudden my sock looked like it was being knit inside out - there was garter stitch on the outside and stockinette within. I tore back to try to see what happened but couldn't figure it out, so I just purled the rest and chalked it up to "experience."
Unfortunately, last night the same thing happened again! It had been only a day since I picked up the sock and when I had knit it last time it was fine. I looked at it happened in about the same place the other one did - about 20 rows after the heel, with the rounds alternating between decrease and knit across. I know I didn't turn the sock inside out, and the pattern doesn't change at all during this time.
Does anyone have any ideas or experience with this? I feel as though I have defied the laws of knitting and am totally baffled.
hello all, I have been trying to pick up stitches for a sock but the resulting stitches are so tight I can't work with them - especially because the next row is full of decreases, requiring the stitches to have some give.
I had a similar problem before when knitting a penis cozy and made an effort to keep my work loose. Does anyone have any advice that could save my sock?
