1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Question about Super Happy Cute Crochet on: November 01, 2007 06:10:22 PM
I May be looking way too much into this but when the book says:

"ch 14, working in back bumps of foundation ch, sc in second and each ch across (13 sc)"

Now, Does that mean sc in the back loop? or the bumpy bit on the wrong side of the change cause then there's this part..

"pivot work to work along opposite side of foundation, sk first sc, 6 dc in next sc, sk 1 sc, sk last sc....."

That would lead me to believe im working in the back loops. But I want to make sure. This is my first amigurumi and I'd like to start off on the right foot.

Thanks in advance!
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Throw Pillow Swap on: October 10, 2007 05:08:46 AM
We could see how creative we can get on a 12x12 or 16x16 throw pillow, they could reflect our skills and include some interests that the swap partner has.

It may sound silly now that I type it out  Roll Eyes would anyone else be interested?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / February Baby Sweater from Knitter's Almanac Questions on: October 06, 2007 07:08:44 AM
I'm knitting the baby sweater for a cousin and after reading the "pattern" I had a few questions, mostly to seek the opinion of some other knitters

1. When doing the increase rows, do you count those seperately and then do another 4 ridges or do you count them in the 4 ridges?

2. When did you begin the button holes? I looked at the final product of the sweater and saw that there are infact 6 buttons and only instructions for 4 holes, this i will probably finagle with and start a bit earlier on, say after the first four ridges. but that's not for certain yet.

3. has anyone knit this completely seamlessly? I figure it could be done, i havent tested out the pattern to check.

That's all I have for now Cheesy I'm just curious, i know Elizabeth Zimmerman sets this up as more of a touch and go and decide for yourself type of pattern, I'm probably over thinking things.

Sort of like the spinning board has fiber friday, maybe we could do a weaving day where everyone shows what they're up to?
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Lost swap...again? on: November 09, 2006 09:50:40 AM
I'm just now catching on to the Lost craze and I have to say I'm totally impressed with it. I've also got a ton of Ideas streaming about crafts to make. Anyone interested in rehashing this idea for a swap?
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Blue haired sockmonkey!! on: July 04, 2006 08:42:05 PM
My sister's birthday is tomorrow and she requested from me a sock monkey, she didnt care what it really looked like as long as it was a girl. So i thought this would be a good time to try and expand some skills. I really looked into giving her hair and had looked into some tutorials but I figured the best way to learn is to experiment.



I used lambspride worsted in aztec turquoise, I think it really turned out great in the end!



To tack down the hair a little better I embroidered bobby pins on both sides! I think she'll like it! I'm gonna make it something to wear so she's not quite so naked and that's really about it! I have to thank Tamara of Sockmonkeyfun.com for really lighting a fire under my butt and getting me motivated for this hair thing, up until then I was content just to make bald monkeys!
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lulabelle has come along! on: June 29, 2006 05:51:31 PM
This is Lulabelle my second sock monkey and my first independent sewing endeavor.



she's a bit smaller than my last sock monkey Earl but none the less a good pal for hanging out and watchin tv with.  I bought and altered some doll clothes from target and they seem to fit her near perfectly, aside from the really tight shirt but it doesn't matter too much.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Monster Weekender Bag on: June 29, 2006 05:40:33 PM
After seeing all those adorable monster bags, I decided to buckle down and make one of my own. Mostly it will be to carry around knitting projects and taking on weekend trips, which are the best to take.

Front view



Inside (the fabric doesnt match but it was the best that I had on hand)



Close up of the face



he's a little too green in that photo, the best color is on the edges of the second picture, unfortunately it doesn't really give a decent example.

And the last one for size comparison:



Over all, i'll make the next bag a bit smaller and hopefully it won't be as time consuming, this one took me about a week total putting in a couple of hours every day. The final sizes were 19" x15" for the front of the bag and about 4.5 inches wide.

Enjoy!
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / making doll clothes patterns? on: June 14, 2006 10:23:00 PM
I have a couple of sock monkeys in need of other clothes, and was wondering if its deceptively simple to make them or what? I have heard tracing works but getting a stuffie to lie flat is seemingly difficult. Any ideas?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / replacing a heel flap with a shortrow heel on: June 07, 2006 05:11:21 PM
Can this be done? I bought the book sensational socks today hoping maybe it would have a mix and match section about customizing the way a sock is knitted but there isnt such a thing. I googled it and searched the boards here but still havent really found what I'm looking for. Is there a simple explanation starin' me in the face?
