1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Fiber Friday September 12 on: September 12, 2008 04:21:37 AM
Holy cow I'm first! I have really missed Fiber Fridays and all my yarn friends.
This week I made Cocoon a blend of space dyed wool in mulberry and a soft yellow with slubs of butter colored silk.


I can't wait to see your latest and greatest. Happy Friday! Grin
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / I'm so excited! on: March 20, 2008 02:45:17 PM
I'm not sure whether I can post this as it's also sort of knitting related. I figured that since the prize was hand spun I could post here.
     In the beginning of January The Knitters Challenge was to break out and try something new. I am the world's worst knitter so I donated a yarn prize instead. Voting ends TODAY!  Ack! It's killing me to find out who won. Hooray for challenges,lol.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Has anyone knitted Knitty's Antifreeze? on: January 30, 2008 12:28:15 PM
It's the snowboarding/ski mask? I am about 75% finished and wondered how it was working for you? I'm worried about the back of the head length being too long. Undecided Any help would be greatly appreciated.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Blocking an alpaca scarf? on: January 09, 2008 05:33:41 PM
I spun and plied this yarn for my DD.  Now it's all knit into a scarf and I'm terrified of ruining it. Roll Eyes
Is blocking necessary for her scarf? It's ribbed K3P3 and I don't want to lose the ripples. BTW there is nothing more satisfying than hearing  "I don't care if it's hot, I'm wearing my scarf FOREVER."  Grin
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Daughter's First Knitting Project on: January 05, 2008 08:02:26 PM
Celeste is nine and she knitted this headband for her best friend. I wanted to show her how proud I was so I put her project on Craftster. (She is a Craft Diva in Training,lol)

WTG Celeste!

I can't believe I'm first!

This is Corazon is 95 yards of soft merino wool. It's the first time I have ever spun a bulky. It was pretty fun! I think I'll make another. I bought 1/2 pound of this colorway. I love it! I'd probably knit Corazon on size 9-11 needles.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / So...knttting with glass needles? on: December 13, 2007 05:31:34 PM
  I thought about getting a pair for my husband. He knits so tight that he can dent aluminum needles,lol. I thought he might like them, but I wanted to find out if glass needles were just a gimmick or if they worked as well as bamboo or nickel plated.
Has anyone knit with glass needles before? They're pretty pricey. More importantly have you broken one yet?
8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / A sort of poll....Do you pre-draft your fiber? on: December 11, 2007 06:45:53 PM
 The other day I bumped into another spinner at my LYS. We were both buying fiber and she mentioned that she never pre-drafted, never! I have always pre-drafted and was really surprised. That got me thinking.......Are you a pre-drafter?
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Translating a crochet pattern into a knit pattern and vice versa on: December 10, 2007 01:25:07 PM
Okay, I am not much of a knitter but I am HORRIBLE with crochet. My entire family can crochet, so I have no idea what's wrong with me. However- I found this pattern for a lace-weight shawl that I love, but it's in crochet. Is there some way to translate this? Is there a website or a person that does it? Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hee hee...Yarn cake! on: December 10, 2007 12:53:30 PM
My best friend's birthday was last Saturday. She's a knitting diva so we threw her a party at the LYS. (You can't see her Tshirt but it says born to knit,lol) The cake is dark chocolate, pecans and Bailey's Irish Cream. I had to post it here because a) It's the only forum she ever reads b) Only yarn divas would get a yarn cake and I'm pretty sure she has the first yarn cake ever!
Happy Birthday Girl!  Grin
