1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Oct MagKnits is up! on: October 01, 2007 09:49:58 AM

Love Bitty Boo!

The afghan may become a wedding gift for my brother and his gf (he hasn't proposed yet, but will soon!), very nice.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Noro Sakura on: January 15, 2007 08:16:05 AM
Ok, so for Christmas, my mom got me 2 skeins of Noro Sakura, in the #1 colorway


My question is this:  What the heck should I do with it?  It's so yummy, so pretty, and I can't think of what to do with it!  My thought is to get a few more skeins of it and make a Clapotis, what do you think?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Colors on: July 18, 2006 10:28:29 AM
So, are you drawn to certain colors over others?

I've been buying so many yarns in blues, purples, greens...lots of mellow colors.  Same thing with the yarns I've dyed.  How weird is that?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Paint for upholstery? on: May 20, 2006 07:36:25 PM
So the wife and I found some great chairs for the living room.  Except for the fabric, that is.  It's PINK!  Well, rose-colored, at least.  Ugh!

So, doing a quick search online, and I found this:
www.fabricspraypain t.com

Has anyone used this?  Any thoughts?

I promise to get pics up soon.  Too tired tonight!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Second Booga on: May 10, 2006 06:14:17 PM
Love the pattern, but probably won't do it again for a while.

This was done in Cascade 220 Quattro, color 5012.  Handle was done in Lamb's Pride Worsted, color M105 (RPM Pink).  I added grommets.  Wanted to line it, but had a hard time finding a fabric I liked.



It's a Mother's Day gift, and I hope she likes it!  She's a sucker for pink.

ETA:  This is my second one.  My first was done for Knitting Olympics.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Name change gift ideas on: April 18, 2006 08:21:29 AM
Ok, so my partner is changing her name from "HerFirstName HerLastName" to "HerFirstName HerLastName MyLastName" next month.  (She currently has no middle name, so she'll take HerLastName as her middle name)

I need ideas for gifties!!

And they don't necessarily have to be craft-related.

So far, I've come up with notepads.  And that's about it.

HELP!

(btw, my dad wanted to put up one of those "It's a Girl!" signs in their yard.  Think he's honored about all this?)
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Booga Boogie on: February 28, 2006 11:50:06 AM
What happens when you take home-dyed yarn, a nice circular needle, a driving trip through Texas, and a Knitting Olympics challenge?

See for yourself:

Pre-trip:



In the parking lot of the laundromat:


And after all is said and done:


Booga bag pattern, adding 20 stitches to width, 20 rows to depth, and about 15 rows to height (I lost count).  Not pleased with the handle, may change that down the line.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fixing a yarn over? on: February 14, 2006 12:13:46 PM
Ok, so somehow, while I was mindlessly working away on my Booga bag for the Knitting Olympics, someone snuck in and put in a yarn over.  Of course, I didn't notice it until I'd completed 2 or 3 more rounds.

So I probably only have 3 choices:
1.  Ignore it, hoping that the felting will fix it.
2.  Wait till I get home, whip out my handy-dandy crochet hook, and drop the stitch.
3.  Frog it completely back to the row, remove the yarn over and go back to knitting.

Any thoughts?  Any other techniques you'd recommend?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can you stand another question about Knifty Knitters? on: January 29, 2006 06:25:06 PM
So here it is.  My dad wants to be able to do something with his hands.  The problem is, he's diabetic, and has little feeling in his hands.  He used to be able to knit (in the 60's, of course!), and he's tried to knit now, just because I'm picking it up now.  It's tough for him.

What I'm wondering is if he might be able to use the Knifty Knitters a little easier.

Any thoughts?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / 4 skeins of Teseo yarn on: January 13, 2006 08:15:44 AM
Ok, so it was an impulse buy!!  I've got 4 skeins (98 yds each) of DiVe's Teseo yarn, like this:
http://www.knittingzone.com/catalog/product_info.php?pName=teseo-21763-riviera-blue&cName=bulky-weight-teseo

Any idea on what I can do with it?  May do a scarf, but might look at other ideas, yanno?
