1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Ball Winders? on: October 12, 2006 09:00:59 AM
I really want to get a ball winder, but the 2 listed at Joann.com seem to have problems with quality - based on reviews.  I've looked everywhere locally.  For those of you that use them, which ones are the best?  Thanks!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Best place online to buy Trekking yarn? on: October 04, 2006 11:29:11 AM
I've found it several places.  Looking for places that offer discount codes or free shipping or something.  =)  I've bought it from littleknits before but the shipping is pretty high - $10 - $12.50
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need help finding a child's sweater pattern on: September 28, 2006 07:47:18 AM
Looking for something worked in the round - preferably a free pattern.  In a size 4/4T.  Unisex or Boy.  I've looked at all my usual haunts and haven't seen anything.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I need to crank out a sweater in the next 10 days or so.  =)  Thanks!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What to make for someone you don't like very well? on: September 20, 2006 07:03:24 AM
I know it's an odd question, but this year I'm making everyone's (except my children's) christmas presents.  This includes my dad's wife - my stepmummy - of a few years.  She's alright and I don't hate her but I don't particularly like or have anything in common with her. 

So, what would you make for someone like that?  I don't want to make something too labor intensive but I do want to make something that looks like a little thought and time went into it.  She's kinda "rough" if that makes any sense at all.  I wouldn't go so far as to say she's trashy, but she's walking the edge.   Wink
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / A butt-load of yarn and never anything to start a project? on: September 19, 2006 02:30:29 PM
I have a scary stash.  And I don't normally by onesies twosies either.  I have enough of quite a few things to make sweaters.  Problem is, I can never find anything to make.  Is there anyplace online where you can search for patterns by yarn weight or gauge or anything?

For example - I bought some Plymouth Fantasy Naturale with the sole purpose of making a toddler sweater.  Now, I can't find a pattern.  I've looked through tons of my books.  Skimmed dozens of websites....  Any suggestions?

PS - Fantasy Naturale is:
140yds/100gms
18 sts / 4 inches
Size 8 needles
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted Kureyon Handbag - First FO Xmas Gift! on: September 18, 2006 10:53:37 PM
I'm really pleased with the way this turned out.  It really didn't felt up as much as I would have liked, but after about an hour in the washer I said screw it.  I ended up using a suede-like purple lining to firm it up some.  I unintentionally modified the pattern.  The handle part was supposed to be worked in the round, which would have made it stockinette - I didn't read that part and worked it back and forth - which made it garter.  Oh well, I'm still happy with it and hope my sis will like it.  I can't remember the colorway I used.  It took 3 skeins.  1 for the handle.  1 for the front and 1 for the back.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Half-Assed FOs (Is there a support group for this?) on: September 18, 2006 10:47:55 PM
For some reason, I can only do 1 of anything.  I say - "I'll do this one, then one of another then go back and do the match for the first" - but I end up moving onto something else.  Anyone else like this?  I really need to finish these up because these would make some nice gifts, I think.  =)  Well, except for the socks, which are for my little guy.

Someone on craftster posted a pattern for these.  Love 'em.  Done in Caron Simply Soft Shadows.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Working on my 1st sweater and need a little help/support, please on: September 14, 2006 04:59:39 PM
It's super easy, but I'm doubting myself the whole way.  I started small - a sweater for my 4 year old.  Here is the pattern:

http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/kwec-raglanPulloverChild.html?noImages=0

On the "Sleeves" part:
When it comes to descreasing as for raglan armhole shaping for back - just do the dec on either side like I do for the back?  For some reason that doesn't make sense to me.

On the "Finishing" part:
Set in raglan sleeves - what does that mean?

Thank you!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Rowan Denim Yarn Sub? on: September 12, 2006 09:02:11 AM
I'm looking for a sub for Rowan Denim that I can get just about anywhere.  I'm in a hurry and don't have time to order online.  I have quick access to Wal-Mart, Meijer, Hobby Lobby and Michaels.

Thanks!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Organization for Circulars? on: September 06, 2006 09:50:13 AM
Wondering how everyone deals with their circular situations?  I am a freak about organization and I'm going nuts here.  Straights and dpns are easy.  I've got my yarn stash under control - but have no idea what to do with my circs.  I like them to be tucked away but easily accessible and to be able to pick out the right needles quickly.

I was considering a dayplanner type thing and just getting more pockets.
