1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding Program Fan on: June 20, 2007 01:04:24 PM
I want to make paddle fans for my wedding programs.  I have the paper and the sticks.  I have 8.5 x 11 card stock. 
How can I make it into a nice shape?  If I bring it someplace could I get it cut?  Or are there reasonably priced tools that I could purchase?
I bought a couple of fiskars corner punches but they are too small to produce any real effect.
Thanks for any suggestions!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitted Wedding Veil on: January 23, 2007 02:24:50 PM
I am getting married next summer.  I just got my dress.  I want to knit my wedding veil since I don't love any of the ones they sell in the shops. 
Has anyone out there tried this?  I have googled it with not too much luck. 
I think I'd like a simple-ish lace pattern that I could knit in silk or linen.  My dress is a very simple linen gown from JCrew. 
I want to knit something beautiful that doesn't look home made-y.
I have 7months until the big day and I knit daily. 
Thanks! -Kate

I am looking for a hat to make for my nephew.  He is 3 1/2 - but we come from a long line of big heads. 
I am making him an aran knit cardigan and I'd love to give him a hat and maybe mittens to go with it.  I have Googled it and I can't find anything. 
Here is the sweater: http://www.knitting-crochet.com/chiiricar.html

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Banana Republic Merino Cable Knit Shawl on: October 13, 2006 12:37:30 PM
I love this shawl. But I am too lazy to go to Banana Republic.
Do you guys think it is just a large rectangle, with extra ribbing on one side?

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help me understand a Rebecca Pattern on: October 05, 2006 05:57:44 AM
I tried casting on last night for a Rebecca pattern.  It is design # Nr. R1016.013 Romper Suit with Cables and Hat. 
It definitely looks like something I would have no problem with but the instructions are SO unclear and they were definitely written for a European knitter. 
Does anyone have experience with this pattern?  Obviously I can't post the pattern but I need some help!!!
Thanks! -Kate

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / 2 Skeins of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece on: March 27, 2006 01:01:17 PM
I just made a sweater with Cotton Fleece.  I have 2 skeins left over. 
Is there a pattern out there for a tank or a little tee that I can make with the leftovers?  I have been looking, but nothing seems to be the right thing.   Huh
The 2 skeins = 7 ounces, 430 yds.  Weight 3, sz 6 needles.
I am an advanced beginner, willing to try something adventurous!  Thanks!!

I saw these in a few magazines.  I love them.  I know that I can make on for less than one tenth of what she charges.  Has anyone tried it?  Wanna try it?
