1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Small Diameter Stitch Markers on: August 07, 2007 09:23:12 PM
I'm looking for stitch markers made for smaller needle sizes (US 3 or below).  Anyone have a favorite etsy or ebay seller or online store that sells stitch markers with a ring diameter of 7mm (1/4") or smaller (or a seller that would switch them out before mailing)?  I really like the weight & beauty I've seen, but I don't have much of an interest in switching out the rings myself if it can be avoided.

Thank you.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Adamas Shawl Needle Size on: June 20, 2007 01:58:44 AM
I'd really like an opinion on whether or not I should go down a needle size on my Adamas shawl.  I'm using KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud, a lace weight yarn, & knitting on the US sz5s as recommended, but it looks & feels (to me) to be to open.  No I didn't swatch (it is lace after all), but would really like some
input.  None of the pics online I've found (of it blocked) look as open as mine appears to be unblocked.  Should I keep going, try a US sz4, or go down to a US sz3?  (I have no issues starting over at all; it's a very simple pattern & I haven't gone that far anyway.)  Thank you!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pomatomus using skpo & k instead of k2tog tbl & ktbl on: May 06, 2007 12:23:50 PM
Has anyone attempted (or know of pictures of such) Pomatomus without the use of twisted stitches?  The fabric feels rather harsh to me & looks that way as well.  I've tried googling, but most of the results are about how to do a ktbl & related things & not about actually converting the pattern.  I know what the difference is in both technique & look, but I'm wondering if anyone else has thought of changing the pattern in this way.  I'd really rather not rip back ten rows to try it out just to end up ripping it out again & going back to the pattern as charted.
Thanks!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitpicks pdf patterns on: March 05, 2007 09:54:46 AM
Has anyone ordered a pattern as a pdf instead of a printed copy?  Are the pdfs password protected or anything of that nature?  How does the quality look when printed (while realizing that some of that will depend upon the printer itself)?

Thank you!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Buttons for Baby Sweater on: February 24, 2007 03:52:21 AM
I'm currently knitting a couple baby sweaters
for my cousin's twins & am stuck on what buttons to use.  I bought the buttons below, but am honestly not in love with any of them.  I like the number ones ok, but since there are five buttonholes per sweater...  Any suggestions?  (Buttons online?  Or what combination of buttons to use below?)  I'm looking for the primary colors (red, blue, & yellow) & green mainly.


Thanks!
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sun & Star Needlepoint Kit on: April 14, 2006 11:46:35 PM
Finally, I took pictures of the most recent needlepoint project I'd finished, Dimensions' Sun & Star needlepoint kit.  Next time, I think I'll actually count it out instead of just following the painted on pattern.  I'd much rather end up with exactly what's on the front of the packaged.  It'll probably never get framed, since I tend to stitch for the fun & relaxation of the process.  I present the unblocked & unframed front & back.
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Graphs vs Written Word Patterns on: April 13, 2006 03:45:28 PM
I'm beginning to get the feeling that I'm in the minority here in that I absolutely love crochet pattern graphs & hate written word patterns.  This is one of the reasons I hadn't crocheted in years until I recently acquired a Japanese crochet magazine.  All of the patterns in it are in graph form with a bare minimum of information written out.  (Most of what's written is gauge & yarn information.)  I've been very disappointed in the number of beautiful patterns available that are only written words in English.  So I'd like to ask, what do the rest of you prefer?  Written word only, graph only, or a combination of both types?
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Paper Making Pour Mold, Where to Buy? on: March 06, 2006 02:00:39 PM
I realize I can easily make a paper pour or dip mold, but I'd really rather just buy a couple preconstructed.  Where do people get theirs?  The local craft stores here don't seem to carry any papermaking kits or molds.  If I don't want/need the other parts of a kit (although I'll buy a kit if that's my only real option).  Am I SOL?
