1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Eyes are the Window to the Soul. Good stencil idea? on: September 09, 2006 03:45:34 PM
I was thinking of making some kind of stencil where like, eyes and a window and something to represent soul (I don't know what, maybe a heart? or....I dunno) are lined up. Would people actually understand it, good idea or I am just being dumb?

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Hat+ Simple Teddy Bear+ a question on: December 25, 2005 06:42:07 PM
First, the teddy bear. It was from a book, Kids Knitting I think. Something along those lines. A very simple pattern. Btw, please forgive my HORRIBLE camera skills, especially on the teddy bear. Pic is hugely inadequate.

Hehe, as you can see, it still had some ends needing to be woven in.


And here's the hat:

More pics:

It's from the Yarn Girl's Guide to Kid Knits, or something like that. And in case you were wondering, yes, my baby cousin does have a big head, since evidently the hat can fit on mine too.  Smiley hey! It has a santa hat on! lol, I just noticed that.

My question was, since I carried the yarn up the side of the hat, and then seamed it, it has some loops of yarn going up the inside. Do I have to cut those and weave them all in, or not? And if so, what's the point of carrying yarn, because it's the same end product as cutting it?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Ribbon Threaded Scarf: Help? on: November 15, 2005 05:50:21 PM
See, I think those ribbon threaded scarves are pretty cool... and I want to make one. The problem is, I have no idea what to knit a scarf in so you could thread a ribbon through. The one that I could tell the stitch was crocheted, so it didn't help much.

Does anyone know?

Here are some, in case you don't know what I speak of:
This one is crocheted, I think:

And it says this one is knit:
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting question- Monty the Monkey on: November 09, 2005 04:31:09 PM
Ok, so I'm knitting http://www.save-on-crafts.com/motoymoknpru.html. Monty the Monkey, in Red Heart Medium Worsted, because that yarn seems like too much for me. But I'm unsure about some things, maybe some of you experienced knitters could help me?Huh ?

(Row 1) * (KP, K2) 6 times. (24 sts)
(Row 2 and alt rows) Purl
(Row 3) * (KP, K2) 8 times (32 sts)
(Row 5) K2, * (KP, K2) 10 times (42 sts)
Work 3 rows stkg-st.
(Row 9) K2, * (KP, K3) 10 times
Work 3 rows.
Inc 1 st both ends of next row. (54 st)

These are the lines that are confusing me.
First of all, I get these little purl bumps in the middle of all the stockinette, but I assume it's supposed to be like that. My 2 questions
1- I worked row 5, then went on to 'work 3 rows stkg-st.' But if I did that, I would be knitting on the (so-far) purl side. So I did reverse stkg-st (I think. Where you start with purl, right?). Would that be right?

2- And the work 3 rows. Does that mean work in stkg-st?

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / How to attach wings?? on: October 24, 2005 08:15:38 AM
For my halloween costume, I'm being a faerie, and I've made some wings. They're so extremely ugly, I don't want to show them, but they're like.....downward facing with a split into two at the bottom.  If you don't get what I mean:

I know about using ribbon, but I heard something about using v-shaped wire?
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Acrylics and Fabric Medium on: October 09, 2005 08:19:44 AM
Okay, so I started my shirt, with freezer paper, acrylic and fabric medium. I used wrought iron from folkart for the paint. But now that I've done the first layer, it looks greenish (I'm using a yellow shirt). I want it to be black. Could I add another type of black acrylic paint to the mix, or does it have to be the same brand of acrylic and textile medium?

And, a question that I thought I knew, but just making sure.... if you use freezer paper and iron it down well, you don't necessarily need bridges, right?
7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / A different intarsia pattern for Powerful Wrist Protection? on: August 28, 2005 09:50:19 AM
I want to make powerful wrist protection from SnB for my friend, but with different intarsia patterns. I've already seen one for a skull, which I would make in black, but I'm looking for a guitar to make in red and black. I haven't found any, so if someone could explain how to make a pattern (on a macintosh) or make one for me, I would love it!

Pretty please?
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Patterns for monkeys that are not made of socks? on: August 27, 2005 04:33:01 PM
I'd really like to make a monkey for my friend, but the ones made out of socks seem a bit complicated (and involve sewing, which is not a strong point). I'd prefer knitted monkeys. I've searched and haven't found anything.
