1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can you make a tanktop out of cottontots? on: June 11, 2006 03:51:38 PM
I recieved a skein of  Bernat Cottontots from my lovely secret pal, and I'm dying to make a summer top,but I'm worried that it's lack of stretch and such will make it unsuitable. Any of you make a tank top or something of the sort out of Cottontots? Any suggested patterns? I'd be so greatful! Cheesy
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My dinky little bear and ipod cozy (4 images) on: May 25, 2006 11:25:40 AM
Just finished these two. I think they look pretty cute, but aren't as "neat" as I would have liked, but I guess the homemade look is pretty cute.  Tongue



This bear is my first try at toys, hehe. It's supposed to be a birthday present for my boyfriend, but I might try to make something else since I still have a month. Does anyone have any easy pattern suggestions?

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How to bind off armholes for a sweater?? on: March 24, 2006 08:23:50 PM
I'm knitting a sweater flat (it's my first!) pattern #41 in REbecca 28, in case it matters and I can't seem to figure out how to bind off for armhole shaping! It says to bind off 3 at the beginning and end of the row, and then every couple of rows I have to bind one or two stitches off, but I don't get how I'm supposed to bind off at the end of the row and go back to knitting the next row? Do I cut the string and pick up on the next row or what? I feel pretty clueless!
4  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Rebecca 28 #41 Sweater with diagonal ribs and cables?? on: February 13, 2006 10:19:36 PM
Anyone interested in knitting this up?

I was inspired by Lazynono7's pictures of her sweater here:

and I went and bought up a bunch of Lion Brand Kool Wool from Smiley's (for only 2 bucks a skein!!) and I'm all ready to start! I was just hoping someone else would wanna try tackling this with me!!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / stripes....and carrying colors up the side on: August 17, 2005 04:24:36 PM
I'm trying to knit a scarf with some chunky yarn in two different colors. I tried to use the russian join to make the color transition look neat, but for some reason it isnt coming out as nice as I wanted. So, since I'm only doing 4 rows of each color, I wanted to try to carry the yarn along the side, but I was wondering if I can do that on something knitted flat. Where would the carried yarn go? I feel like this is a silly question, but the only way I can imagine the carried yarn not showing is if i knit two scarves and seam them together so that there is no "wrong side". Any hints/tricks/ideas for working with some chunky yarn?
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Record Door Decorations on: August 13, 2005 07:01:18 PM
I'm in RA for freshman at my college and I got a great idea for their door decorations. I want to get records for everyone's door and decorate them and put the resident's name on them. My only problem is that I need to find at least 25 records for really cheap. Do you guys know any places besides Salvation Army where I can get records for $1 or less? Specifically the NYC area, b/c I assume it'd cost a lot to ship them. Also, any ideas of what I should decorate the records with?
