11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitted monkey! on: October 05, 2006 02:37:18 AM
hi! i have a friend who is OBSESSED with monkies (don't ask!) and I quite fancy making her a knitted one for christmas (yes i know i'm early). I did search for a pattern, but couldn't seem to find one. Anyone know of any? Am I being dozy looking in the wrong place?
Either way - if you know of anything, please let me know... you'd make my friend very happy! Cheesy
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Gauge help needed :) on: September 05, 2006 10:28:34 AM
I posted in the completed projects board about a pair of baby booties i made --> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=102116.0

it's a great pattern, although the booties are incredibly small (obviously due to the fact that they are for newborns - 3 months).
I was just wondering if some clever crafter(s) could help me scale them up a little bigger.. i.e. I'm not sure which bit to scale up or by how much.... Huh
any help would be appreciated - thanks!  Smiley
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Leg Warmers.... technicality... :) on: August 15, 2006 10:27:35 AM
Hi - just seen the new edition of elle (uk) and legwarmers were a feature. it was knitted love at first sight. I think i get the gist of knitting in the round.. just a couple of questions..
(1) how many stitches do you reckon would be enough? (i have pretty "regular" size ankles/legs!)
(2) Not really a question... but can someone explain the whole dividing stitches across the 3 needles (i think i read somewhere that it had to be a particular no - divisible by 3/4) Huh
thanks for your help Grin

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Just a quick question... I think :) on: July 27, 2006 10:22:57 AM
Hi, the pattern here -->http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62377.10 is for the most adorable lil knitted yoda Smiley i want to make one for my friend - the instructions in brackets like this [e.g.] - do i repeat the instruction inside these brackets? for example if it says [knit1 make 1] do i knit, make, knit, make along the row?
sorry if i sound a bit dozy but i would love to make this little guy great starwars master Smiley
16  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Yet another tampon holder!!! on: July 25, 2006 09:09:31 AM
I was inspired by the many other makers of these pretty holders and decided to have a go myself. This was one of those projects that was pretty much on the back burner but after my computer mouse died and another one was bought - it came in a box that just asked to be made into a tampon holder!
Here's the front:-

Here I used old magazines to make a collage base, and then found an image on the internet of these cute looking skull and crossbones (at this point the printer ran out of black ink - so i had to use felt tip to colour it in!)
The side panels:-

Again i did a magazine collage for the background and then the black and white images are from a perfume advert featuring Rachel Weiss.
The back panel:-

Here I wanted to make a faux book review page (similar to ones out of magazines) and was lucky in finding this book online - which i thought was appropriate! I used this style making up quotes from "readers" Cheesy all in all it was a mickey take - something to cheer me up when I'm feeling blue....
The top of the box:-

more perfume images and a red shoe (random i know) but every girl's gotta have a red pair of high heels haven't they?!
Inside storage:-

it has the capacity to hold much more - just a quick demo  Cool
well girlies, whaddya think?
17  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Crafty Charity Shop Finds! on: July 21, 2006 11:05:09 AM
Hi! This board is for posting all of your crafty finds from charity shops - some of the most amazing things I've got for crafting have been from these places - I'll now share with you my latest find...
Well, I recently finished my exams, but whilst I was revising for them I decided that I wanted need a break and so I cleared out my room and donated a huge bag of stuff. I took my wallet and boy was I glad I did  Grin
I found two lever arch files bursting with knitting patterns.... it's one of those things where you buy a magazine weekly/fortnightly and build up the collection. Firstly they tend to be very expensive, secondly the person who'd donated these had collected practically two series full Shocked
Here's the files :-

Just showing how many patterns are in there:-
(remember to times this by two!)
Examples of some of the patterns:-
I would love to do this in navy and white....

it looks so soft!
  an evening knitted top...
Sorry about the flash on these pics...
These are just a few of the patterns, the files also include tips on different stitches/ buttons etc..
all in all i think that was a very satisfactory find! and the best part? the files (plus a set of dpns) came to a grand total of........2!!!!
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / These booties are made for walking! on: June 20, 2006 11:57:33 AM
Well I wanted something different to knit - and came across these gorgeous booties here http://www.dreamweaveryarns.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=22_77_146&products_id=741 (original post faraboverubies)

I don't have a specific recipient for these, so I didn't do them in the ruby red (but when I do I will!)
So here they are in green (with pearly buttons)

There's one on its own....

and this picture is because I couldn't get over how small they were (excuse inky fingers - just done a three hour exam)

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting in the round shy - what's a good first project? on: June 19, 2006 07:45:54 AM
i'm trying to wean myself off simply using straight needles. I don't have dpns (yet!) but recently bought myself a pair of circulars which i'm determined to use (unlike my last pair - tried to untangle them and broke them Sad)
so what do you reckon would be a good first project on them? preferably something in the round as opposed to knitting flat but just taking the weight off the arms Smiley

thanks! Kiss
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / :-[ i feel so stupid - please explain! on: June 18, 2006 09:01:17 AM
 Embarrassed i can't believe i'm even posting this - a pattern calls for me to add stitches. now this doesn't mean increase by 1 does it? if it doesn't, then what do i actually do - co some stitches and then add them?
my brain is all fuddled and i can't understand the logistics Sad
some kind craftster please take pity Smiley
