1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: CHEAP Yarn. on: January 12, 2006 06:44:59 PM
I know, I've never seen yarn there before either but there's tons of it this week.

If you follow the link I posted, you can find out if there's a Garden Ridge in OK.

I went back there after I bought the yarn and bought some other cool craft stuff dirt cheap. I bought miniture wooden clothes pins that were painted. There were four different colors in each package and they were only $1 a pack. There was other stuff I bought too, but you catch my drift. I glued some paper roses onto some of the clothes pins and I'm going to use them on a collage. I found a couple of really cheap but nice frames at Garden Ridge (one was $3.99 and the other was 50 cents!! ) and they're having a huge sale on art. Some of the art work is worth buying just for the frames. Huge frames cost a bundle but if you're willing to buy a huge picture just for purpose of using the frame for something else, Garden Ridge is the place to go to this week. :-)

For those of us lucky enough to live within driving distance of a Garden Ridge store, there is now a HUGE yarn sale. 2 skeins of yarn for $3. Here is a link if you want to find a store near you;

I picked up some mohair blends and 5 skeins of a 60% wool yarn. I'm happy with my haul and already started a scarf. Smiley

Faraboverubies, I'm dying to try knitting socks myself. I decided I wanted to use circular needles and ordered the QueenKahuna book. Once it gets here, I'll be right behind you wrt hitting the sock trail. Smiley

If you need graph paper, here is a free online source for SPECIAL graph paper that is handy for knitters. It's asymetrical, so what you plot out is how your row would actually look like, unlike standard graph paper that uses squares. Since knitting rows are more like rectangles, this graph paper is more accurate.

Did I mention that it's free and easy to download?  Smiley

HTH.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sock construction questions - heels, toes and reinforcement on: December 19, 2005 12:28:45 PM
I've been wanting to learn how to knit socks for awhile and just today, I bought some inexpensive yarn to try to learn.

Anybody here feel charitable enough to post your favorite sock pattern? I'd love to hear from you sock knitters. Before I came to the board today, I ordered QueenKahuana's sock book. It'll be here in a week I guess but I'd like to know what everyone else uses.

Thank you. Smiley

Depends on your printer. Most printers can handle it. Just be sure to put it in the printer the right way, meaning the paper side is the one that gets printed on. If you do the plastic side, you'll end up with a mess.

Plus, you need to get the paper the right size to feed it in. You can take a piece of regular printing paper (copy or computer paper) and use that as a guide. Then you need to make sure the freezer paper lies flat. You can stack some books on it overnight to flatten it out. The corners can't curl up or you'll jam your printer.

Some quilting shops have freezer paper already packaged and sized for printers. Quilters use them for appliques and templates and use their printers to print them out on.
