1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help - I bound off WRONG. on: March 21, 2007 10:52:10 AM
Ok, I'm knitting merrily away, working on my first sweater, and it comes time to do the neck hole shaping.  You know how it is, knit 7, JOIN NEW YARN, bind off 23, knit 7.  Or whatever.

But I forgot to join new yarn!?  I, being too lazy, to check and make sure I actually knew what I was doing....kinda...fo rgot that step, and figured I'd join new yarn after binding off those middle stitches...

Now - I'm hooped and have NO CLUE how to go back and rescue those poor little stitches far far away on the other side of the big scary bind off.  Can I just frog bind off?  I've never tried...

Help me please!

(Thank you thank you thank you in advance)

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / We who are about to receive copious amounts of Yarn....salute you. on: December 30, 2006 11:26:34 PM
Ok, I figure this is the best board to post on.  I'm mean, we're all obviously yarn addicts here, and I don't delve into crochet as much as I like.  So....I have an enormous stash already.  I mean, it's gloriously sinfully amazingly HUGE.  Considering I've only been knitting for two years.

But.  The most amazing thing happened tonight.  My brother told me about this woman who has 10 acres of junk, who he is helping to rid herself of said junk.   And.   Some of that junk is yarn.    *drools*   Enough yarn that he said his toyota van may not have the strength to bring it all to me.   he'dhavetoputitinhisdu mptruck. 

O.o  MY MIND BOGGLES.   And it's not all cheap yukky scratchysqueaky acrylic.   Oh no.   SHE HAS A 50+ POUND BAG LABELED MUSKOX.  ONE LABELED YAK.  And and and...
I find it hard to breathe.   (Oh!   And if I take ALL the yarn, good and bad....she'll throw in her knitting machines....and her automatic looming thingy.   O.O   OMG.) 
But.   I have a -very- limited space...and well....lots of craft junk already...So my man wasn't to please when I told him about my plan to have it all.   But do you folks think that vacuum packing it would help to reduce the bulk significantly?   I mean, if it's all labeled and protected in the attic...it should be safe, right?  And there is -no- way I am going to be able to use it all.  Maybe -ever-.  So I'll probably be selling a large portion of it....The possibilties are endless...

I just really needed to share my insane excitement with people who would be hyperventilating as much as I am.  Yay!   I love Craftster!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Knitted Monsters! on: September 07, 2006 02:31:04 PM
My first post.  Eee.  *nervous*  So, uh, these are two little knitted monsters I made a little while back.  They're about 5 inches tall and 3 inches wide - just done in stockinette.  They have a rock in their bums to help them stand up, and are stuffed with poly-fill.   The yellow one is Nobu, and he's my man's, and the pink one is Kafei - Nobu's girlfriend.  (I attached one of her arms inside out...oops.)  XD   I love them, and they were super easy to make - practice use of swatches and leftovers! 

Thanks for looking!
