check this website: http://www.freewebs.com/stencilry/home.htm

go to the bottom and click "onward to the stencils". look under the movie section. it's not the amelie/gnome stencil at the top, though i suppose you could use that too. but there is also one closer to the bottom of the page.

this is wonderful! i love it. i also like Godard though i've only seen one of his movies. i tried renting this movie but there weren't any copies at the library. i'll have to try again.

aynways, the bag is lovely.
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / backyard leaves help, please? on: May 24, 2006 05:17:29 AM
i just started backyard leaves from scarf style. i thought i was doing ok with it, but apparently not. it's turning out horrible!

it's the garter stitch part. i'm thinking that the problem is the slipped stitches. am i supposed to slip kwise on RS and pwise on WS? it doesn't say and i read somewhere that if it doesn't say, you assume it's pwise.

i'm kind of at that in point in the scarf where i wouldn't be too heartbroken to rip it and start again, but also not very pleased to do it. so any suggestions would be much appreciated.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: We can't stop here! This is Batland! (all sorts of bat pattern requested) on: May 22, 2006 09:38:15 AM
a found a chart for a bat:

i don't think a stuffed bat would be all that difficult, either. well, the wings might be a little.

also, try doing a search on the boards. it came up with some interesting results:

unfortunately, there isn't much in the way of bats. but look up keywords like knitting and halloween in a search engine and you might find some stuff you like.

i haven't seen this one. but i did recently see a whiska's commercial. a woman who was knitting was a fairly prominent part of it, because, you know, kittens and knitting always go hand in hand.  Undecided

thank you! i'll be sure to do it the right way on the next project because, believe it or not, i like it alot better. so much easier to knit into the purl stitches when they are done right. well, i was silly and started doing it the normal way about halfway through my project, and now it looks ridiculous. i think i'm going to have to go back a couple rows and do it how i would normally. ohhh, the amount of ridiculous mistakes i've made on this project makes me feel like i should start over. i think they are signs! oh well.

thanks again for your help!

18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / i've been doing it wrong?! on: May 02, 2006 07:17:10 PM
apparently, yesterday i found out that i was purling the "wrong way". i figured this out when i was watching a video on knittinghelp.com about a certain increase. anyhow, i have been wrapping the yarn around the needle clockwise rather than counter clockwise, making the stitch different. i read the blurb on the website about this so-called "combination purl" and it says that the next row would then need to be adapted to fit this change. i haven't encountered any problems so far, i don't think... but could it really cause trouble? what do i need to change in the next row? and does it look any different or can i just go ahead and change the way i do it now without screwing up my project?

what i'm worried about most is that this is going to be a horrible habit to break.  Undecided
