11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cute furry bags for lil' girls on: March 16, 2006 01:27:19 PM
These are bags I knitted early on in my return to knitting.They are made from Sirdar Funky Fur Magic. The one on the right was the first for my daughter Georgina. She thought it was a bit boring just knitted and suggested the heart on the front. I had a bit of lining fabric left over and used that. I did motifs on the other 2 as well, they were Christmas presents for my friend's daughters. I'm really proud of them they're really cute and get admiring glances everywhere. I'd like one in black to relive my gothic teens, maybe with one of Georgie's old Barbie heads attached to the strap for a macabre twist! Not so cute huh?

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting patterns for older kids (12+) on: January 22, 2006 04:07:51 PM
Hi all,

I'm hoping to use the collective wisdom of the forum to find a knitting pattern for a hooded jacket or similar for a 12 year old boy, preferably plain. I've found an absence of patterns for children over 11 that aren't 1950s cutesy timewarp clothes. I've looked at men's sizes but they start at 36/38" chest sizes and Alex is 32" and really skinny. I don't know if I'm brave enough to adapt a pattern, especially with the price of yarn. I work in a library so I can get hold of most knitting books, online resources are fine too. Please help!!
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Roll call: any Brit knitters on: January 18, 2006 01:26:08 PM
Hi everyone,

I so wanted my topic to rhyme but 'Brit knit' just makes me think of head lice. But I digress and I'm slightly off topic so I'll get on with it.

I'm very keen to get in touch with British knitters still resident in the UK, just to have you on my Buddy list, I won't start stalking you or anything. I've found that the majority of knitting resources online are American and there is  a difference in yarn description, needle size etc. and it would be interesting to compare resources, yarn substitutions, prices etc. by PM on Craftster. Please make yourself known to me here or by PM, as a newbie I would love to benefit from the experience of others.

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fluffy Gameboy Advance pouch on: January 17, 2006 03:39:01 PM
I seem to be destined to make 'holders' for my kids' belongings, this time it's a pouch/cosy for Georgie's Gameboy. I'm especially proud of this. I used Sirdar Fun Fur Magic yarn and the red design at the front is supposed to be a heart but it gets lost in the fluff. Here are the various stages:

Pieces sewn together with lining

The inside showing the two little pockets made out of lining fabric for extra games

The finished article, with handle

I'm making another in Patons Beehive (anyone remember that one? Mine's been knocking around unused for about 10-12 years!) using jeska's space invaders design. That one's for Alex, and yes, I'll be using the zebra lining. Watch this space!

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Newbie project: Art nouveau pencil case (now with instructions) on: January 11, 2006 01:14:58 PM
Hi folks,

I'm new around here. I've knitted a few funky bags for my 7 year old daughter Georgina and her friends (may post those later) but I'm particularly proud of this pencil case I knitted my 12 year old stepson Alex (hence the 'A'). I told Georgie that I'd be posting it on here and she insisted I take a picture of her with it (she's so vain, and so photogenic it makes me spew!!). This is my first intarsia project.
