1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Embarrasing Question.... on: March 28, 2006 08:36:14 AM
Ok, so, I could ask my super-quilter-mother-in-law this question but I think that it would lower her opinion of me.  I am a beginning quilter and I made a baby quilt for a friends shower (that is this Saturday).  I have finished it except I need to tie it and sew up the binding around the edge (hand sewing it).  I have been so stressed at work, traveling and such and have had no time to finish this and it has become a total thorn in my side. 

So, here comes the embarrasing part...can I use Stitch Witch to finish up the binding or will that turn out to be a disaster?  Do I need to buck up and just sew the damn thing? 

Thanks for your help...and for not judging me  Tongue

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Baby Booties on: December 09, 2004 06:43:11 AM
Help! My boyfriends sister and he husband have been waiting to adopt a baby for a couple years and just last night we found out that they have been chosen! Only problem is, the baby will be here right around the first of the year and I haven't knit ANYTHING yet!  I thought I would have more notice! I am a advanced beginner at knitting and I am looking for a pattern that anyone might have for baby booties?  I saw the Uggs listed on another area of craftster and I might look into those but does anyone have an cute and easy patterns they might be willing to share??

THanks so much!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How to use stitch markers on: May 04, 2004 10:09:22 AM
Hi Everyone,
I am knitting the Sophie Bag from Magknits and in my short knitting career, thsi is the first time I have needed to use Stitch Markers. So, after I picked up the stitches around the base, knit one round, then placed my 4 markers (I just used different color yarn). Now it says decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker on rows 10, 20 , 30, etc. My markers are way down at the bottom, do I just need to follow the imagionary line up from the marker at the bottom to see where I should decrease or am I using these markers wrong?
I know this is kind of a silly question-I hope someone understands what I am asking..thanks in advance!

Has anyone tried this bag? I just bought some yarn to start it, it says that you only need 1 skein?? Sounds too good to be true!

Just wondering if anyone has knit it and if so, how did it turn out?
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Floor Pillows on: March 23, 2004 05:30:34 AM
Hi All,
I am a knitter who wants to extend her craftiness into a little sewing..so, I have decided I want to sew some big floor pillows for people to sit on in my under-furnished apartment.  Does anyone have any instructions on how to go about doing this (dumbed down for a beginner)? I thought I read some instructions on here for this a while ago but I can't find them anywhere...anyways-thanks in advance for the help
