1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: vegan yarn on: October 25, 2007 04:46:21 PM
I LOVE bamboo yarn. I've used the "bamboo soft" yarn by Rowan Classic Yarns and it's great (and totally vegan as far as I can tell).  Your options are mostly as follows:

-Bamboo (lots available, actually)
-Soy (check out South West Trading Company)
-Hemp
-Cotton
-Corn (http://www.knittersreview.com/goto.asp?goto=cornucopia )
-Linen
-Acrylics

There's actually a lot of options for vegan knitters, you just have to do a little more looking!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Get published! on: October 25, 2007 04:41:11 PM
Hi Craftsters!  I'm the author of a forthcoming knitting book called *Picture Perfect Knits* and my publisher, Chronicle Books, is sponsoring a contest for knitters. The book is all about intarsia, and we want you all to submit your own intarsia charts. The top five designs will be included in the book---how cool is that? Plus, you'll get a free copy of the book when it's published and huge Craftster bragging rights!

Here's the link:

The deadline is November 29, 2007, so get cracking on your own awesome designs! Good luck, everyone!
3  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / EUROPE / Yarn in Budapest, Hungary? on: July 10, 2007 04:10:11 AM

Anyone notice the dress Jordin Sparks wore on American Idol tonight? Here's a refresher:

 Here's a link if the pic doesn't work : http://www.americanidol.com/photos/view/?set=168&seq=68

It's DEFINITELY a wrap dress. I can't find a pic of the back of it, but she had it crossed across her back in an X.

I, iwriteplays, claim Militant Pacifist for goodies from the USA!

I am from the US (Los Angeles to be exact) and this is my first claim.

1. New Zealand/Australia - YARN YARN YARN. Arnott's Tim Tams! Smiley

2. Germany - Fabric, candies, yarn, anything really.

3. UK - Yarn, candies, fabric, anything.

4. Anywhere -- Yarn, fabric, trims/ribbon --- I'm really open to anything! I'd love to get something that I really can't get here in L.A.

I'm a crazy knitter, so I love any and all kinds of yarn! (Could you tell?) I'm really open, though!
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: A Very Dishalicious Gallery for knit dishcloths! :-) on: March 16, 2007 12:17:28 AM
I received my package from Iwriteplays today! You'll have to pardon the pictures, I'm really lazy since my computer has a built in camera. They are pink and green. She calles them Naughty and Nice. Great job on the ruffles! I tried a new pattern (lace. and round.) then when it wasn't coming out verey pretty, I chickened out and sent my standard pattern. So I guess what I am trying to say is that, even though you think the ruffles are a pain in the butt, Way to go!! Thanks!

Ginamonster, I'm so glad you like them! I promise to take pictures of your cloths soon! Gina also sent me an awesome handmade bar of soap which is currently cleaning hands in my bathroom Smiley

I have some more pics of my dishcloths (that are a little more color accurate). This was my first attempt at double-knitting AND ruffles. I like the double-knitting better --- ruffles hurt my fingers!









This was a really fun swap!

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Peruvian Baby Sweater on: February 23, 2007 12:06:21 AM
I can't believe I've never posted this on Craftster, as it's one of my favorite knitting projects! I designed a baby sweater based on some Peruvian chullo hats and I think it turned out pretty well. Check it out:
