There are so so so many. I bet it you typed "free knitting patterns" into Google, you'd end up with a million! Smiley

Here was my take on the flower washcloth from "Weekend Knits:"

I like how it turned out, but I'm not sure I'd knit it again actually. I thought it was super fussy (weaving in *all* those ends!). Anyone have any other cute and less fussy washcloth patterns?

Here's my felted bag. I love how fast the pattern knits up and the felting is so fun to watch! I'm slightly concnered about how it'll look with my heavy keys and wallet in it!

Hi all,
This is a new knitting website in the vein of Knitty (www.knitty.com--in case you don't know!):


I'm printing out the felted poppy pattern and knitting them up tonight!

Here are two more attempts at Jenny's patterns. These were turned into pillows for a friend who's totally obsessed with playing cards. I gave them to her for her birthday and she loved them! Smiley

I ended up using a little less than 3 skeins (1 1/2 per legwarmer). Here's what they actually ended up looking like:

Hi all,
Here's one of my attempts at one of Jenny's patterns:

I actually turned it into a pillow--the "frame" and back of which were a really nice hot pink.

I have more pix to post! Embroidery rocks!

I just made a pair of legwarmers that turned out pretty well. (I'll post pix as soon as I get my hands on a digital camera!).

I used Noro Kuryeon yarn, which is varigated and totally lovely to work with. So mine turned out stripey, which looks pretty cool.

Here's what I did:
(I knit them on straight needles but you could definitely do this on dpn's)

#6 straights or dpn's
#8 straights of dpn's
darning needle

Cast on 48 stitches (I'd say this is a Med. - Large size) on #6 and work in K2P2 ribbing for one inch.

Switch to #8's and work for desired length. Mine were about 16 inches when finished and they're slightly bunch at the ankle and end below the knee.

After you've knit the entire length that you want, swtich back to the #6 needles and work the last in in K2P2 ribbing again.

If you worked on straights, seam up the sides using the mattress stitch which turns out pretty mch invisible.

Weave in ends and voila! You have a rad pair of legwarmers.

I have an embroidery question. . . I've done a buncha small projects (like pillows etc. and I'll post 'em soon--promise!). But I'm getting ready to embroider a t-shirt (center, middle) with one of those state birds from Martha Stewart (http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=channel183945).

I know you're not supposed to tie knots in your work, but what's a better way to anchor the floss so that it won't come loose in the wash. I was thinking about using fusible webbing and creating a backing or something for it. .. . . . anyone else attempted this?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!
