1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Handsewing Silk on: October 12, 2005 06:03:56 AM
Ok, this is kind of a silly question, but I don't sew a lot, and its rather a desperate situation.  So... managed to step on the cuff of the lining of my suitpants and split the lining this morning, right along the butt seam.  I noticed that the seam was serged, and that the fabric ripped right along the surge.  Is there any technique I can use to make a secure mend?  Or should I just hand sew in the normal way?  I don't have a sewing machine, and would love not to split the silk again in the future.....
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What's the quickest shrug/bolero you've made? on: October 06, 2005 02:34:41 PM
Hi guys,

I have a wedding to go to next weekend, and I just got an awesome dress.  However, although it was about a billion degrees here in Boston today, it probably will not be that warm next week.  I need something to cover my shoulders! (Plus, although it is an evening wedding, and thus cocktail dress appropriate, it is also a Catholic wedding, and thus needs to be non-scandalous)  I also have to be able to knit it FAST FAST FAST, as I have other things than fancy dress up preparations to attend to. As fast as possible.  Any awesome pattern suggestions out there?  I really like the UO circle sweater that people have been doing but it seems that most have found it a little time consuming.
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / TV Needlepoint on: May 01, 2005 08:27:20 PM
So, I was exstatic to see the new Family Guy tonight.  And there is an awesome scene where Stewie is working on a cross-stitch in bed that says "Die Lois".  Anyways, there is a thread about knitting in the movies/tv shows on the knitting discussion board and I took this as a sign to start one here.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cable Mitten! on: March 02, 2005 09:21:08 PM
This is my first post and third project that I've finished:


  My mom dug up this pattern from my grandmother's desk.  She has Alzheimer's disease now, but she taught me how to knit the first time when I was about five.  Seventeen years later I actually figured out how to do it.  My grandmother used to make these mittens for her seven children, and this pair is for my sister.  I used Noru Kureyon with brown Cascade 220... I'm super excited because cables are easy to do!  It is freezing here in the northeastern US so I will be doing mittens for a while for family, but then I hope to do some sort of tank tops for spring/summer!
