i just pulled out this issue the other day for some inspiration and remembered how much i loved that top.. but you know when you get the feeling it just won't look as good on you as it does on the model? your top looks awesome and you've done an amazing job!! this is definitely going on my list of to-knits.. great work!
2  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / Re: HELP!! Re-locating to Greensboro area from Toronto Canada... on: September 20, 2007 11:20:23 AM
I relocated to Greensboro from Raleigh 2 years ago and I love it. Yes, there isn't as much to do here as there would be in larger cities.. but there are crafty things to do if you look hard enough. We live in Southside (downtown), which makes things a little bit more accessible and we don't have kids so I can't speak on that but I think you'll be just fine. Friends of mine who live in more suburban areas (Lindley Park, Kirkwood, etc.) love their homes and it seems there are lots of places from which to choose, both for rent and sale. I had to use public transportation last year when I was without a car.. it's lacking, to say the least. My favorite LYS is Yarns, etc. downtown and I love them! Good prices, really friendly staff and great classes.
Hope your move is going well and welcome to the area!!

i love that pattern! i've got a whole bag full of cotton twist that i'm hoping to empty by the end of february but i like the variagation of the yarn you used.. it reminds me of a scarf i did in artful yarns 'fable'

i love how yours fits! i have one on the needles that needs to be finished this evening for a very late birthday present. i hope it turns out as well.

this weekend i went hiking in the app. mountains and ran into two girls wearing them on the trail.. how random! it must be wonderful to have a pattern that's so well known Smiley
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: the new trend: ribbon covered bangles...TUTORIAL!! img obese. on: December 08, 2006 07:31:50 PM
those are awesome! i am in desperate need of some new jewelry. i tried same idea (only with earrings) a few weeks ago. i didn't have any cardboard around so i used some covered floral wire and shaped it into circles, then covered them in ribbon. i left them at work but i'll try and get a few pictures. have you tried making other kinds of jewelry like this?

7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Casey's Coat Help? on: November 26, 2006 11:37:55 AM
I'm working on an UGA-themed Casey's Coat from SNBN in Lion Brand Micro Spun. It's been going well so far... you can see the progress on http://3starknits.blogspot.com

...but I'm having some problems. I've been asked to put a UGA logo or something of that nature. I know, I know.. if I decide on the logo I'll have to get permission. But I'm running into much bigger trouble:

1. I've never done any colorwork before and I don't know how to make a graph, read a chart, anything.. any ideas? I've seen some videos on knittinghelp.com that kinda helped but I just can't seem to get it right. Is there any good tips out there I should know? Could I duplicate stitch the pattern on?

2. I'm lost without a schematic... and not sure if I'm working from the top down or from the back legs up to the collar?

Thanks for reading... if anybody has some help it'd be greatly appreciated!!
