So I'm knitting a hat in 2x2 rib in Dennis the Menace red and black stripes! I have 84 stitches. Am I right in thinking that, to decrease, I should divide them into 4 (16 sts), and knit two together at the beginning of the 16, and purl two together at the end of the 16, and continue? Also, can I do this every row?
I bought a lovely 3/4 sleeve swing style jacket quite cheaply. The only problem was that it was white. There was no label to tell me what fabric it was, but it felt like natural fibre to my inexperienced hand. So I thought I'd dye it khaki. It has come out an extremely pale green. Therefore it is obviously some kind of synthetic fibre. Is there any way I can dye it?
I am really proud of my latest creations, even though it was just a case of ripping off the raised button holes from the backs of the buttons and gluing earring posts to the back with epoxy resin. They were buttons I bought on ebay.
I have just got a big bag of goth clothes for free from freecycle. I dragged it accross London and it were very heavy indeed! In it were some old corsets, some missing eyelets and lacing, etc. I wonder if anyone could use them for something, because I'm sure I don't know what I'm doing with corsetry! I would be happy to post them to you.
I'm a newbie here. This site is fantastic, and I wanted to get involved, so I'm here to show off the first thing I ever made - a button and bead elasticated bracelet which I think is rather cool and punky. I also made a wristlet clutch bag which I won't be posting because it was just an experiment. Anyway, here's my bracelet. Comments and suggestions appreciated.
