1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help! I need sock yarn scraps. on: June 26, 2008 07:29:30 AM
Im working on a barn raising quilt from the Larissa and Martin Brown book. If you havent seen the book, the quilt is made up of 42 squares knit from sock yarn scraps, all put together to make a patchwork quilt. Ideally several people would work on the squares and then sew them together to make the full quilt. Ive been working on this by myself as I havent really had time to go to my knitting circle, and Im not sure if anyone else would want to contribute. Thats why Im here asking for help. Ive been able to knit about 12 squares with the various sock yarns I have laying around the house and now Im stuck. I cant seem to fins any yarn that is random enough to go with the color scheme, and when I went to the yarn store to buy a few balls so I could have a few more colors to add on the quilt I felt like I wasnt being random enough in my color choices. I want to make a few of these quilts to donate to a local childrens hospital, but at this rate I feel like I'll never be finished. So here I am pleading if you have any scrap sock yarn that you dont have any plans for can you find it in your heart to donate it to my barn raising quilt? I thought I could knit this project on my own, but it turns out it really does take a community to raise a barn!
Thanks for your help! If you can donate some scrap yarn please message me and I will give you my mailing address. It just takes a little bit of yarn to make a square, so the amount shouldnt really matter.
Thanks a million!
2  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Simplicity So Easy 4909 on: February 05, 2006 04:29:30 PM
Has anyone done this pattern? Let me tell you it is anything but easy, and I am very frustrated as I am new to sewig and this is one of my first projects. I expected a pattern that was very straight forward, easy to read and easy to sew.... a pattern that would take a few hours at the most to complete. Well Im here to tell you that this pattern has made me so frustrated I dont want to look at a sewing machine for a long time. If anyone else out there has successfully completed this pattern let me know. I can tell you exactly where I got stuck, and perhaps you can help me through it.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How would you knit a stressball cover? on: January 06, 2006 02:45:52 PM
I am making a relaxation kit for someone, and I got to thinking that I could make a stressball, or buy a premade one and knit a litle cover for it, but Im not exactly sure how I would knit a round ball. Any suggestions? If you can think of a pattern please post. All I can think of is to cast on about 18, knit in the round an inch and start a decrease, but that would only make 1/2 of a ball.... sort of like a little hat. Your ideas are appriciated.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Ideas for relaxation on: December 29, 2005 10:36:46 AM
I need some ideas to make a relaxation kit. Any and all suggestions are appriciated. I was thinking it might be neat to try to do a little altoids box with relaxation related items inside.... but right now Im open to all ideas. Im still brainstorming.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Nose Warmer? on: December 17, 2005 03:53:53 PM
Does anyone have a pattern for a nose warmer besides the one on knitty? I think the tassles on it look stupid. I know I could just leave out the tassles.... but before I commit to knitting that version I was just curious if anyone else has another version.
Thanks!
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Sale tags and displays, I need ideas on: November 06, 2005 05:11:27 PM
A friend of mine asked me to participate in an upcoming art sale. Ive never sold any of my items before so Im a little aprehensive when it comes to the set up. Il mainly be selling scarves and T-Shirts and Ive coem to a real delemia on deciding how to display them. I dont have a dress form to make a nice little set up of a shirt and a scarf together. So I was thinking about just folding the shirts up like they would be at the Gap or other store, and just lay them side by side on the table. The only thing I could think of to do with the scarves is maybe create a little colthing rack type stand and drape them over it. Gosh, Im at a loss....
Any ideas or pointers are GREATLY appriciated. Also, can anyone recommend any sort of great little handmade looking sale tags? Im thinking about making my own out of some neat looking card stock, but I havent made up my mind yet. The sale is on the 19th and Id rather get tags that are pre-made vs making my own.

Ok, this isnt necessarily craft related, unless your able to sew your own super awsem scrubs, which some people do. But I keep thinking to myself that I go through scrubs so fast, either becasue I get tired of them or want something seasonal, or mess up the pants that go to  a particular top... oh you name it, it happens. At any rate Id really like to get a scrub swap be it locally or via the internet started. My first place to go was meetup.com and when I saw how much it was to join I changed my mind, then I went to craigslist, but for some reason their site isnt loading propperly for me today, so that leaves craftster. Are any of you other craftsters healthcare professionals? Would any of you like to participate in a scrub swap?

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / I need help w/ beading on: October 28, 2005 08:04:48 PM
I want to sew some beads on to a t-shirt, but after giving it a try I think I need some help. I am outlining a stencil with seed beads. Is there a trick or a method to get all the beads laying the same way? Some of my beads were standing on their side and some flat against the fabric. Surely there is some web link on how to sew with beads. I can use all the help I can get, so if you have any pointers or a link to a tutorial I would greatly appriciate it.
