absolutely gorgeous!  and I hope you don't mind me saying, but you're really cute and you have great skin!  Grin  OH and my name's Kaitlen  Cheesy

I want to make one now, but I think it'll look funny on my bald-ish head  Cheesy

Aw, you're sweet! I signed up for craftster a year ago and was FLOORED that my first name wasn't taken as a username. There's so many of us, even my best friend is named Katelyn! Glad to meet you!

Gourgeouso. You guys are not very good influences on a 17 y-o who just read through all that stuff. Luckily, I'm mildly terrified of alcohol, so I don't think this is going to make me want to try it. Truly, though, your calorimetry is beautiful, and you actually look quite lovely in it, messy hair and makeupless face and all. 

Aw, thanks!

Now I'm thinking about putting a disclaimer on my post, just in case! I don't want anyone drinking underagedly thinking that it'll grant them super knitting prowess or anything.. hehe!

that is absolutely beautious!!

god i tried knitting while drunk last night. i am attempting to make a hat with brioche stitch in the round. um, DIDN'T WORK!!!! lol. i get confused enough trying to knit the thing sober. but man, that was work last night. i should try it with something more simple in the future.

it's hilarious, knitting and alcohol together...such a strange combination...

It's one of my absolute favorite combinations! I love to sit in the living room while getting a little bit liquored up with my mother-in-law as we knit and giggle at the morons on TV.

It might not be the most productive way to knit, but it certainly keeps things interesting! Definitely a straight stockinette endeavor, though..

My knitting group knits at a pub on mondays. We call our group the purl and hurl. I try not to knit anything too complicated on these nights.

HAHA, my husband (the only man I know of who knows what a purl is) gets the pun and thinks it's absolutely hilarious!

(I live in too small of a town to have a knitting group, and there isn't a yarn shop for 300km in any direction, so I'm jealous!!)

oooohhh i love it? is it difficult to knit? is there a pattern for it anywhere? (I'm asking for 'learn to knit' stuff for xmas, and this better than a hat)

Calorimetry is a free pattern from www.knitty.com's Fall 2006 issue. Search it up in the archives. It would be a great beginning project, after you learn to knit and purl, because that's all there is to it! Great job, post pics when you're done!

I just finished my calorimetry last night too!  Cheesy all but the button, go figure I can't find one in my entire crafting stash Angry  I loved how quick and easy it was. The yarn you chose is gorgeous! What is it? 

Hey! I love the colors, too. I used Paton's Classic Merino in "Harvest". SO SOFT. I just have to hand wash it, I'm horribly afraid of felting it.

I don't generally advocate doing things that require concentration while drunk, heh, but I find knitting after I've had a bit just makes the piddly, slow rows you plug through sometimes just that much more bearable. Certainly helped me get through this tiny project!

I'm going to test my theory on a sweater shortly.

Ahhh, the virtues of alcohol.. LOL.

So I finally got around to making my Calorimetry. I started it last night and knit until I was too drunk and sleepy to knit anymore. Grin I was surprised at the fact I never dropped one stitch that whole night! For those of you who like to knit while sipping something special, this is definitely an easy one, even after you've had a few, lol Wink. I finished it today, and I'm so proud!

Pardon my funky hair and my no-makeup face, I'm just too proud of this to let it go another day without a photo.







(a couple more pics and further details in my blog!)  Grin

Yeah, lap size sounds about right! It's not hard to do at all! English paper piecing is the easiest, most brainless thing ever!

I don't quite know the best way to explain it, because I was shown in person, but I'm sure your library would have a book about it! It's totally foolproof, and you get perfect hexagons (or whatever other shape you're working with) every time!
40  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Hexagon Flower Quilted Pillow! on: September 27, 2007 06:50:38 PM
My good friend (who frequents the knitting/crochet board of this site, hee heee..) deserves a present. My mother in law is teaching me to make my own hexagon quilt using the English paper piecing method, and we came up with the idea to make my friend a pillow out of one of them.

This is what we came up with! The sides of the pillow look wonkier than they actually are...  Cheesy
(it was also my very first attempt at appliqu!)



I tried to take a picture of the quilting detail, but forgot to turn on the macro function, so I failed and it turned out blurry. Oh well! What do you think?
