okay so i searched through other peoples questions on this pattern and i have another one. i've made socks before, (once), but i can never get the picking up stitches part right (after you turn the heel) so i'm trying to follow this pattern precisley but i'm getting really frustrated. first, after you turn the heel, it says to K4, change to D, pm, k4 with needle 1. so if you're supposed to knit the second set of four on needle 1, what needle is the first set of 4 knit on? then, it says to hold an empty needl ein your right hand and insert it into the slipped stitch from front to back..i thought i understood that, but then how are you suppoesd to knit it if it's on the right side? are you supposed to turn it around so that the stitch you just picked up with your right hand is now in your left hand, and knit tbl that way? i'm so freakin confused / frustrated, can anyone help?
tonight, after a two or so year hiatus, i decided i was going to start quilting again. since i don't have the time or patience to make an entire quilt, i'm going to make lots of smaller things. tonight's project was a log cabin potholder.
there's tons of things that i could have done better, but i think it came out alright and now i have a potholder for my first apartment!
okay so i'm pretty much going crazy trying to figure this out. i've looked through a jillion different sites on runching, ruffles, gathering etc and cannot figure out how to do it. anyways, here is a picture of the bag i would like to make:
i figured the pockets wouldn't be a problem..but they are. does anyone know how to do something like this / could direct me to a tutorial or something? im getting sososo frustrated ajdsflk.
I lined it with some vintage fabric I had from a previous project, and added a snap (but it came out kind of off center..I'll probably end up re-doing it.)
The lining was really weird to do..I didn't know if you could use a sewing machine to sew into knitted fabric, so i just hemmed the edges and hand sewed it in..probably not the best way to go about putting in the lining but it worked..kind of.
Oh and I made the handles all by myself! Well, my dad did the shape because I can't handle tools and all that, but I stained and finished them! I'm so proud!
I found a tutorial on here for a hobo bag a while ago and made one. I got a whole bunch of compliments on it so I made two more today for two friends who are going to the National Irish Dance Championship in July, as presents. Hope you like
the first one (the black stitching on the bottom is because i hadn't reversed it when i took the picture, it's not like that now)
I just joined this forum and figured I should post a picture of a hat I finished a week or two ago.
(excuse my blank expression)
I made it out of Lionbrand Boucle in Sprinkles and the pom-poms are Sorbet. I hadn't intended on adding the pom poms but it looked kinda plain w/o them. But I had run out of the Sprinkles and had some of the other color laying around, so I figured it'd add to the..eccentric look. What do you think?
