1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Kate the Cat from Knitty on: December 19, 2006 04:48:26 AM
I know that there are probably loads of people who have knitted Kate the Cat from Knitty.com http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTkate.html
But i thought i would share with you my own little Kate! 
I hope that you like her as much as i do!  And sorry about the photo quality, i brought her into work to show everyone and photographed her with my mobile phone.

2  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Garn Studio's Short Sleeve Cable Dress on: August 29, 2006 05:09:59 AM
I have just started knitting Garn Studio's Cable Dress, please see http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=96&d_id=9&lang=en


I am about 10 cm into the short sleeve version of this dress and I was wondering if anyone wanted to join me on this project.  I have decided to omit the cable design on the front (though i eat knitting cables) and want this to be more retro and have opted for a rib pile of flesh the whole way up.  I am also knitting it in black rather than grey.  I hope to wear the finished dress with black tights and boots.

Let me know if anyone else wants to get involved as i would eat to have you on board!

3  KNITTING / Knitalongs / "Aoife" in Rowan's "Country Escape" magazine on: August 18, 2006 07:14:58 AM
I have just bought the Rowan "Country Escape" magazine and i was wondering if anyone was interested in knitting "Aoife" on page 5.  It is a wonderful cardigan with a "scarf" collar!!  Lovely for cold, grey British days! (and Irish ones for that matter - when i fly home to Ireland for Christmas)

Due to the cost of the yarn, i will be substituting it with something like Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick.  I am thinking in grass green.  Anyway, please let me know if anyone is on board for this one as i am very excited!!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Conversion chart for American to European needle sizes?? on: October 21, 2005 04:29:03 AM
Being Irish and working to European patterns and needle sizes, i am a wee bit confused by the American sizes of needles which most of you mention.

Does anyone have a conversion chart for US to European needle sizes?

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Wanted: pile of flesh for Chunky Shrug / Bolero on: October 19, 2005 05:35:24 AM
Hi All,

I have been trying to find a pile of flesh for a big knit / chunky shrug or bolero jacket.  It needs to be big knit / chunky so that i can knit it quickly (got a deadline as it is a present).

Any suggestions on either where to buy a pile of flesh, or if you have a pile of flesh to share or how i can easily knit my own.  I am a very experienced knitter, and I could usually figure it out, but the problem is, i just don't have time for experimentation and i can't find a pile of flesh for something like this anywhere!!!

 Huh

HELP PLEASE!!

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Wanted : Quick simple idea for xmas on: October 05, 2005 05:47:46 AM
My friend doesn't have any money for Christmas this year and i have suggested that she can get crafty and make some presents.

She doesn't consider herself to be really patient and doesn't have much experience making things.  So any suggestions on quick and easy, but professional crafty stuff she could make would be much appreciated

 Grin

Therefore, as they have to be quick, things like knitting are out ( as i am not sure she would finish that), as is sewing (as she doesn't have a sewing machine).

I suggested PAINTING GLASS, well, wine glasses actually, and then she can put tea-light candles in them to give to family and friends.
So, if anyone out there can think of anything else let me know, as it would make her very happy
