1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Raggedy Ann Skirt, YAY! on: September 08, 2007 12:11:16 PM
I made myself a Raggedy Ann costume for Halloween this year, and I need to find a top to go with it, since I have no shirt-sewing skillz... But I wanted to show off my crafty little RA skirt anyway, lol!
Here she is...



and

I made a wig too, I have to trim to so it's more Raggedy-ish.



But I need to find an easy-to-do top idea... thank goodness I have 2 months to go! Smiley

she's right, and you didn't make a mistake! Smiley you bind off the whole side, then once you get around to that part again, you cast on 22 stitches. i think that is my least fave part of knitting this bag. just be careful not to get it twisted and you'll be fine.

no you don't have to send a square to your angel - although I am sure you could and they wouldn't mind - but that's why they're called angels, 'cause they're giving and not asking to receive, bless their hearts! Smiley

Ladies, I have a favor to ask. I have been having to work not only my full-time job (some of you may remember, I got it after this swap satrted YAY!) but also at the restaurant hubby and I own too, we've been very shorthanded of late. I've been doing about 50 to 55 hrs a week, PLUS the twinnies and big sis, WHEW! So anyway I was hoping that one of you might volunteer to follow up with our angels, and make sure they're all still planning to send? I have kept this thread updated with the angels list, and I can add that hairstylinmama's angel and mine both sent me DC #'s this week, I just got the msgs.

If someone can volunteer, they can go ahead and start PM'ing the angels, and once I get a chance this week I will change that person's feedback to reflect co-organizer status. I am SO sorry that I can't see this through til the end, but there has just been so much going on, but I want to let you all know I didn't forget you - I just can't hardly get here, LOL!

I'll check in on my lunch hour the next couple of days, if I can....

(((((hugs)))))

Thank you!  And one more question... when knitting with circular needles, how is it that you get a stockinette stitch when you're just knitting and not purling at all?  Shouldn't that end up being a garter stitch?

No, because you are technically doing one continuous, never-ending (or so it seems after 14 repeats, LOL) row. If you were on straight needles and you were knitting every row you'd have to stop at the end of the row, turn your needles and work the other direction. But with circulars, you only work in ONE direction. You are always moving forward, not back and forth like on straights. Does that make sense? (I am a bad explainer, LOL.)

You'll see once you get started - honestly the only tough part is wrapping your brain around that very first join, then it'll all be clear, lol! Smiley

Updated list of who has angels so far... If your name has a line it means I have given your mailing address to the person by your name, and you should expect to see some squares soon! Smiley Those of us with no angels yet, we're still on the list and hopefully there'll be some more volunteers! Smiley
