1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Butterfly a-long (Rowan 37) on: June 07, 2008 12:12:57 AM
I'm glad to find there's still a KAL going on for this dress.

How did you guys decide what size to make? I'm going to make it for my SIL and her hip measurement is 6" bigger than her bust.

It would be nice to do this in the round. Has anyone who did it that way have trouble with it not having the thicker seams?

I did all of mine in the round with no ill effects. I say go for it. Seaming lace is a bitch.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / How best to combine handknits with machine sewing? on: June 05, 2008 01:02:55 PM
I have this idea for a series of purses that are sewn from canvas or something similarly sturdy that each have a panel of handknit fabric inset on the side. I'm not one who finds handsewing fun or durable, so is there a way to combine these two materials without destroying them or my machine?

Also, I have access to industrial lockstitch machines and sergers, if that helps.

Nothing wrong with curvy...that's what defines a woman!

Now on to the blazer. It looks so professional. I love the bias tape around the edges (you have the patience of a saint...) and the bows add the perfect feminine touch. Is that just decor over some buttons or do they actually keep it together?

I get really into certain detail tasks (like bias binding) and yes, the bows actually hold it together.

Wow this is beatuiful I do have another question for you though I have heard a lot of people had problems with the pattern did you? If so what did you do to fix it? I want to make one for myself but I have been avoiding it since I am not sure about the pattern itself.

Once I learned the lace pattern and the math/logic of shaping I had no problems.

I know it's off-topic, and cool skirt and everything, but I really like your userpic.

Thanks. ^_^

I lined mine with a little swatch of coordinating cotton fabric.

I had my eye on a really vivid red, actually.

I'm totally up for this as soon as I finish the other three projects that are almost done and laying around my house. Does anyone know if brown sheep bulky would be a good substitute?

landry - Is there a particular reason why you're waiting until the end to tack your hem in place instead of just knitting it in place when you were working the hem? I'm rather new to this whole turned hems thing and was wondering if it makes a significant difference.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Best Purse Pattern for Knitters? on: May 17, 2007 12:28:11 AM
I'm trying to design a pattern for a new purse. I need something fairly large (I was thinking about 18" x 11" x 6") with plenty of pockets, including an interior one for my knitting. Are there any patterns floating around out there that are like this? At this moment in my life I'd rather just follow a pattern than have to devote a ton of thought to making one.
