I haven't received yet, I'm afraid, but hopefully my partner will be posting soon! Smiley If she'd like me to post them, I do have pictures of two of the items I sent her, but I forgot to photograph the rest, so I'm looking forward to her post for my own records too. *laughs*

Actually, knitting a tube-scarf on the small blue round Knifty Knitter produces something that looks good and is incredibly warm, according to my mother. Smiley Some of that was probably the yarn, as she picked out a really fluffy fuzzy soft one (I don't remember the exact type), but since it's a tube, you're effectively getting two layers of scarf for the price of one.

The rest of your explanation is kind of confusing, I'm afraid. If you do take pictures, I'd love to see! Smiley I managed to do the "psuedo-crochet" ending I found online -- use a crochet hook (or your Knifty tool, very carefully) to pick up two loops, pull one through the other, pick up another loop, pull that through the leftover, pick up another loop, pull that through the leftover, etc until you're done -- but it looked a little off since the start was just a bunch of loops. (I'm going to post pictures in Completed Projects sooner or later.) So other endings are definitely welcome. Smiley

Real life always takes priority. Smiley Yaaaaay for the gallery being up now, though! Just set it to Notify, so I don't miss anything. Cheesy

I haven't seen the gallery thread go up yet, and I've got that forum on notify . . . Irish_chicky, is it going up soon?

redheadgeek: Eeee, you really like them? Cheesy I'm so glad; it was my first time making . . . pretty much everything in there, and between that and first-swap anxiety . . . Yeah. *laughs* But I'm really glad you like!

(And you totally shouldn't worry; I'm sure I'll love what you sent. Smiley )

I'd definitely start with craft felt. As long as you're careful with what you make, washing isn't a big deal; it's really easy to sew; and after you work with it a little, you'll have a better idea of whether you'd like to stick with craft felt, switch to wool felt, or leave felt altogether in favor of other fabrics. Smiley And you can make a perfectly good medium-sized to small-sized plushie with only a dollar's worth of craft felt, plus stuffing.

Hmm, I think I get it. I'm going to bed soon, but I'll try your idea tomorrow and see how it goes. Smiley Thank you!

Re the thread: I mean, I searched for "knifty knitter" before posting, and I didn't find the thread linked off the stickied post. I found it once I actually looked at the stickied post, though. Smiley

I'm not sure I understand the other part of your comment? Do you mean unraveling part of the too-loose beginning and then . . . I'm not sure about the next step. *laughs* Just tug it tighter, or hook it back on the loom and knit backward, or . . . ?
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knifty Knitter scarf help? on: February 06, 2007 08:15:06 PM
. . . huh, searching on Knifty Knitter didn't pull that thread up, or else I just overlooked it. *blinks* Weird. Thank you, though! There's a link in there that has flat removal methods, which is what I need; theirs involve crochet hooks, but I think I might be able to fake it, or get over to a craft store and buy one. Smiley Now I just need to figure out what to do with the start . . .
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knifty Knitter scarf help? on: February 06, 2007 07:51:43 PM
My mother bought me the Knifty Knitter round-loom set for Christmas year before last, and a skein of yarn she wanted me to turn into a scarf for her. After a lot of delaying (I sew way more often than I knit), I finally managed to get it long enough, but now I've got a couple problems.

First and foremost, can anyone help me figure out how to end the scarf? It's done in the round, on the blue loom. She doesn't mind if I leave the end open or closed; I have a slight preference for open, but I don't want to take it off and lose my stitches or anything weird like that.

Secondly, when I started it, I didn't loop the yarn tightly enough around the pegs, so the beginning is really loose compared to the entire rest of the scarf. Does anyone know a way to fix that without starting over from scratch, or is Mom just going to have to deal with it and/or try to stretch the rest of the scarf to look consistant? Smiley

And lastly, this isn't as much of a question, but if anyone has good patterns for Knifty Knitter socks, fingerless gloves/armwarmers/wristwarmers, or anything else winter-y, and felt like sharing, I'd be really grateful. Smiley I bought a second skein of the scarf yarn because I didn't think one would be enough, so now I have most of it left over, and if I can do something else with it for Mom, I think she'd like it..

Thanks in advance!
