21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Bowtie scarf on: October 11, 2008 06:54:50 PM
My great-grandmother used to make these for her many grandchildren when I was very young!  I have wanted to make them for years but have never found any sort of pattern or any old one to work off of.  We wore them all out growing up!!  Would you happen to have a pattern? I would love to surprise my family with them at Christmas. 
22  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Where the Wild Things Are Costumes WIP - lots of pictures! on: October 08, 2008 04:59:12 AM
those masks are fantastic!! 

when my son was two i made him a duck costume by cutting out and sewing and overlapping the end of felt feathers to a sweatsuit. sorry no pictures.  it was nothing as awesome as yours but maybe it will give you an idea.
23  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Do you have a recipe for green tomatoes? on: October 03, 2008 03:47:02 PM
So I have been literally canning and freezing and preserving all summer long!  I'm glad fall is finally here.  However I am trying to squeeze out the last produce from my garden.  Here in central Illinois the weather has cooled with highs in the 60's and 70's and lows in the 40's therefore my tomatoes aren't ripening as quickly as they were.  My plants are filled with green tomatoes though.  I've made tons of green tomato salsa to try to use some before a frost.  Does anyone have some other type of green tomato recipe that I could can or freeze?  Thanks!

Beautiful yarn, i'm sure your mom loves it.  I never would have guessed there was a mistake in the ribbing, most people won't either...unless you tell them! 
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what is a good first cable project pattern? on: September 08, 2008 04:50:32 AM
I have been knitting a couple of years and have made socks, mittens, sweaters, blankets, scarfs and have the basic stitches covered (garter, stockinette, yo, psso, increase, decrease, etc.)  But I have never done a cable project...it looks intimidating!! Embarrassed  Does anyone have a good first cable project pattern?  I'm looking for something small and not too time consuming like socks, mittens or a scarf.  (i.e.  instant gratification)  I don't want to jump into anything big like a cabled sweater quite yet, although that is a goal for the future.  Thanks for any patterns you could pass on!

 Gorgeous!  Do you have a link to the pattern? 
27  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Interested in cloth diapers for baby #3!! on: August 27, 2008 07:23:07 PM
Congratulations on baby #3!  I used cloth diapers on my twin boys, who are now four, and ordered prefolds(pins and plastic covers)  from www.katieskisses.com. People thought i was crazy using cloth diapers on twins but doing laundry was easier than hauling two babies to wal-mart for diapers!  I loved cloth and had very little trouble with them.  I'm also pregnant with baby #3 and this time around I want to use AIO's so I am trying to make some and use the cloth diapers as the inside.  Here are some diaper patterns I have found, maybe they will be helpful.

and i have found this website has affordable AIO's to buy
www.loschiquitosdiapers.com

good luck!
28  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Elann's pinwheel sweater on: November 06, 2007 12:15:50 PM
I started mine about three weeks ago, also knitting in every spare second, and am on the first sleeve.  I'm so excited at how it is turning out!  I agree, the i-cord edging took forever!! but I am so glad I did it because it looks great.  I opted to use only one color, like the child's version, and I think I like it better because it isn't too busy on the edge. 
29  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: recyled yarn KAL? on: October 08, 2007 03:51:08 AM
erikasewing, thanks for the gorgeous pictures! The more I read this thread the more excited I am to get started!  I unraveled four sweaters and this is what I have to start with. Sorry no before pictures. I didn't wash them, but next time I will. 
 
about 14 balls, i just wish I had more of the blue..it was a small sweater but I loved the color.



I am moving this week so this project,my pinwheel sweater, is going to have to be put on hold for a while.  Thanks for all the advice everyone!!

30  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first (successful) socks...and a scarf!! on: October 06, 2007 01:08:41 PM
Is it just me or does everyone get ecstatic when they have finally figured out the whole knitting in the round and the great sock challenge?  Grin My first pair of knitted socks was not a good experience.  They were knit inside out and the heel flap was backwards, the wrong side was on the right side.  I was less than thrilled.  Huh So finally I decided to tackle another pair of socks and after the first one was done I was jumping for joy!  The toes have a weird point to them but they look fine once on your feet.  I don't have an action shot because I made them for a friend with much smaller feet than my own.   

Here they are my first successful pair of socks! 

and a close up

I used this pattern http://www.spunmag.com/article/050605socks and I used sock yarn my great sister gave me, Rio De La Plata Multicolor 100% Merino Wool yarn on #3 needles.  I love this yarn!  www.riodelaplatayarns.com

Plus a stash buster scarf...chunky knit on #10 needles in garter, 2 1/2 inches wide and 75 inches long.

and a close up



Thanks for looking...these were fun!!
