1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Different techniques for "writing" on fabric on: May 30, 2011 01:07:39 PM
How well this will work depends on the fiber content of your yarn, but you might try one Clorox's "Bleach Pen"s. I would definitely try it on a scrap, like your swatch, first!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lavi Scarf- Help with stitch on: February 04, 2011 12:38:21 PM
it's called a "drop stitch" - a cowl might be another choice (rather than a scarf) .

You might even have enough to make some matching mitts!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you make a large pattern for an extra large girl? on: January 25, 2011 11:34:16 AM
1) look at the patterns at knitty.com - many of them are plus-sized
2) look at "men's" patterns - they are larger sizes, and many are more uni-sex than manly
3) get this book:The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes & Gauges
http://www.amazon.com/Knitters-Handy-Book-Sweater-Patterns/dp/1931499438
"Created for knitters who want standard sweater patterns in a variety of sizes and gauges, as well as those who want a template from which to develop their own designs, this book provides easy-to-follow charted instructions for 18 sweaters, three in each of the six most popular sweaters constructions. Each style is then provided in 15 sizes ranging from toddler to large adult, then further divided into six possible gauges: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 stitches per inch combining for 90 options for each of the six styles, or 540 patterns in all. The cardigan and neckline variations make for more than 1,000 patterns."
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: My mom's V-day B-day on: January 13, 2011 01:07:53 PM
Cowls and fingerless gloves are the rage nowadays - you can use any color you (or she) likes !
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Fingerless Glove and Needle question on: January 13, 2011 01:04:13 PM
I think the 12" circs are too big to make a well-fitting pair of fingerless gloves. If you don't care about the thumb gusset, just knit a flat rectangle where the width is your hand measurement circumference at its largest point, and the length is how long you want your mitts to be (maybe do 1" at the top & bottom in 2x2 ribbing) and sew them up using mattress stitch, leaving a gap for the thumb in the appropriate place.

see these for inspiration: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10620.0

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Questions about what size needle to use for yarn on: December 14, 2010 11:10:14 AM
1.) swatch to see if you can get the gauge called for in your pattern; or,

2.) using a needle gauge, see which size hole a doubled piece of the yarn fits through.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Free Crochet Cloak Pattern? on: December 09, 2010 12:38:09 PM
Go to freepatterns.com - you'll have to join, but it's free - and search for "crochet" and "cape". You're looking for "Irish Cape and Scarf" - I think this is what you are lookinh for.
