1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: subtitute for Rowan Big Wool 8 st x 12 rows over 4 inches on: January 17, 2008 07:31:21 AM
I haven't looked up the gauges, but I like super-bulky yarn!  Maybe try these?

- Burlyspun
- Blue Sky Bulky
- Classic Elite Twinkle Soft chunky
- Cascade Magnum

Row gauge might not matter very much depending on what you're knitting.  Good luck!

There's a mini skirt / boob tube in one of the Stitch n' Bitch books.

My only concern is that your project is felted.  Your yarn will shrink but the thread won't.  I have no idea if that will be a problem or not, but it's something to think about!

It might be good for a baby stuff because it's machine washable.  Know any babies that need knitted blankets?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Batwing style top pattern on: August 18, 2007 11:07:06 AM
Does anyone know of a pattern for a long-sleeved batwing type top?  I was thinking of just winging it (pun intended), but I'd rather have a pattern to follow.

I did this:

It was tedious and awful and I'll never do it again!  Of course, your situation will probably be a lot easier - I was dealing with tripled yarn - fluffy, sticky, tripled yarn.  I think your best bet is to just get someone to help you.  Two people winding at once would probably prevent tangles.

I bet this would be great decorated with shelf paper.  I've woodgrain shelf paper in dollar stores - cheap and easy!
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Bean bag filler on: June 19, 2007 08:52:29 AM
I'm looking to make a bean bag chair for a friend.  I've found several patterns, but have no idea where to get filler.  People have suggested styrofoam packing peanuts, but I think they're too bulky. I know you can buy special foam beads for beanbags, where? (other than online).  I'm in Canada - Toronto to be specific.  Anyone have any ideas?
