2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / beatrix potter swap? on: March 30, 2011 01:20:30 PM
 loved these books as a kid, and now that spring is here, i find myself dreaming of forest creatures. so i was thinking, how about a swap inspired by the beatrix potter books?  there's a ton of ways i can think of to craft the adorable creatures from her books.

would anyone be interested? i can organize, but i wouldn't start sign ups for a couple weeks probably.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help! need to knit a shawl in a week! on: February 28, 2011 07:16:00 AM
so i am going to a wedding on March 12th so i have about a week of working time to make a shawl, since it will need a few days for blocking (i just bought a dress but realized i am going to need a shawl since it's still freezing...)

so i have a couple questions, i am an intermediate knitter, but i have never knit in laceweight yarn...

i want to make this ishbel shawl
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ishbel

first, does anyone have any tips for this?!?!

second, how long would it take you to knit a shawl like this? in hours? i'm just wondering how much time i should block off to make this

im also planning to use black yarn...does that make lace knitting harder? i heard someone on ravelry say its a bad choice...
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / cowl with sparkly handpsun on: February 15, 2011 01:58:56 PM
i made this cowl and i love it. it is made from gorgeous handspun i bought, that has all kinds of shimmery firestar in it. no matter how hard i tried, i could not do it even an ounce of justice by photo, because the yarn looks so much better in real life. it's a simple cable pattern, and i just happened to have these 2 perfect buttons in my stash.

8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / the chimera on: February 02, 2011 07:19:00 AM
i made this chimera (mythical goat, lion, snake creature) for the tiny stuffie swap, but wanted to post it here as well because i was pretty happy with how it turned out. and also now quite fascinated with crocheting a variety of heads to put on a single creature...oh the possibilities...
