71  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Do you own a fiber animal? on: September 11, 2006 06:32:05 AM
I was just wondering if anyone here owns a fiber producing animal, goats, sheep, angora rabbits, llamas, etc?

I have been talking to an Angora Rabbit breeder lately because I've always had this dream of having cashmere goats for their milk and fleece, but I don't have the land for a small herd.  I figured that I could try living a mini-dream with an English Angora (minus the milk) to see if this something I'd really like to pursue with larger animals.

Also, Angora Rabbit fleece can be spun without carding or processing, you can literally spin it as soon as it comes off of the rabbit.

72  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Must find US1 60" circular needle! on: September 07, 2006 05:27:51 PM
I'm looking for a 60" circular knitting needle in a size US 1 (2.5 mm) and would like to trade with anyone who is willing.  I posted this in the classifieds and on knitswap, but I know that not everyone checks those very often.  I started on my Swedish Heart-Warmer Shawl from Handknit Holidays, but I only have a 29" circular and have run out of room already. 


I have a pair of Punk Knits US 13 skull needles (http://www.punkknits.com/needles.html) I'm willing to trade and I also have some handmade stitch markers (set of five).

Or I can trade one or two of these books (your choice) for the needles:
-GORGEOUS KNITTED AFGHANS by Fatema, Khadija, and Hajera Habibur-Rahman
-100 MORE AFGHAN SQUARES TO KNIT by Debbie Abrahams
-THE KNITTED RUG by Donna Druchunas
-25 BAGS TO KNIT by Emma King
-Vogue On the Go WEEKEND KNITS

Let me know! Thanks!

P.s. I've already spent more than my DH knows on the yarn for this project and I can't possibly go out and buy anything else  Embarrassed  Teehee, any help would be greatly appreciated.
73  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Vintage Knits Scarf on: August 11, 2006 06:16:24 PM
I finished this pattern from Rowan's Vintage Knits (which I LOVE that book).  Instead of using the Kid Silk Haze, I used two balls of Moda Dea Sassy Stripes in Crayon.  They were just sitting in my stash and cried out "LOUD SCARF."  I love it, too bad it's going in a craft show  Embarrassed

I made the hand warmers, too, my own pattern, but you really can't see those very well.



74  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Do you Copyright your patterns? on: August 05, 2006 11:08:58 AM
For the designers out there, both professionals and hobbists, do you actually copyright your patterns before sharing with others (via internet, mostly).

I have several patterns that friends have asked for, I want to send them, but it makes me nervous just putting them out on the internet.  I'd love to see people knit my designs, but I don't want someone to smack it in a book or magazine or website with their name on it, possibly making money off of my work.

So anyway, have any of you gone through the knitting pattern copyrighting process?
75  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Does anyone else sell quilts? on: July 24, 2006 06:24:37 AM
I was talking to a friend just yesterday, and she expressed to me that she could NEVER sell any of her quilts or knits.  I don't mind, myself, 75% of my projects are for me and my loved ones, but the other 25% I sell to pay for my personal crafts.

Anyway, does anyone else here sell their quilts (NOT ON CRAFTSTER) in general?  I see such a variation in quilt prices, I've seen full size quilts from $150 all the way up to about $600, I guess it depends on the pattern and time put into the quilt.
76  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Thimbleberries Quilting for Harvest on: July 18, 2006 06:28:54 AM
Has anyone else picked up this book?  I'm not an avid quilter, knitting is my forte, but I've done my share of quilting in the past.

I picked up this book because fall is my favorite season... my daughter's name is Autumn for crying out loud.  There are some very lovely projects, my favorite and first on my to-do list is the Harvest Log Cabin Quilt.  Just wondering what the rest of you thought.  I, personally, think it is a wonderful book.

Hey, so this only my second post, but first posted FO.  I'm a long time knitter and have lurked for ages.  Anyway, here she is.  This is actually for our expecting tattoo artist, thought this would be perfect.  Thanks for looking.
