1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / A buff / neckwarmer pattern on: January 03, 2009 08:57:23 AM
Hi
I am wanting to knit a  neckbuff for my friend's birthday (in less than 3 weeks).

I have found this simple pattern for http://whorledpeacehandspun.blogspot.com/2008/02/buff-by-whorled-peace-www.html on the Whorled Peace website, but it is for a bulky yarn - the yarn I want to 'stashbust' is Colinette One Zero, so it is thinner. I could double the yarn up but does anyone know how else I could 'make it fit' ie use smaller needles,more stitches etc?

Or, does anyone know of an alternative pattern using finer yarn?

Thanks

Brilliant!

They remind me of 'sock creatures' - have you seen that book?

Or otherwise a bit like those off the Corsa car advert here in the UK.
You can see them here - www.grasmerevauxhall.co.uk/acatalog/Cmon_Pupets.html

I have seen this book, and put it on my Amazon wish list - maybe I should just "bite the bullet" and buy it to join in!

Di Gilpin's new branch on George St. is gorgeous. 

What sop is that? A new yarn shop in Perth and I've missed it?!!!

Shona, I think the mittens were the first project I tried from this book.  At the time, I still considered myself a beginner and I don't remember having too much trouble with them.  In fact, when trying other mitten and glove patterns, I've gone back to that Weekend Knitting pattern to use their instructions for the thumb gusset, because I really like the way it's done.

Thanks Knitchick2 - I'll try them!!
Hmm - now to order some yarn - the other bit of my present is still to come!

I agree with this one as a shorter person - instead of always having to alter stuff!

Hi I have 2 cents to add.  Not all people who work with clay are potters.  I say we have a ceramics board (I know that is high faluten, and not all potters call themselves ceramicists and vice versa, but clay is a medium in it's own right).  Not all who work with clay choose to make "house wares".  Thanks...

Ceramics board would be grreat - I do classes and am always looking for ideas for stuff to make (little imagination, sadly...).

This is an old thread I have dug up!

I bought some 'make your own cracker kits' in the post Christmas sales and am determined to fill them with goodies for next Christmas - so I have a whole year to collect small things! Do you think they are better being tagged for an individual so you can target the gift, or just random gifts? Or people could swap what they get.... hmmm.

Ideas so far - beaded bookmards, or other beaded jewellery, home made fridge magnets... anyone else got ideas?

Or is it just the wrong time to think about this!
