Aw man!! I had NO idea they were closing the site. :/ But I've been in kind of a crafty-funk lately and haven't been on Craftster in months, so I guess its no surprise that I've missed some things. Needless to say, I'm wishing that I had printed/saved more of the patterns rather than just bookmarking them.

I try and print things out, especially when they don't come from brand name places like Lion Brand, etc. I have huge notebooks filled.  Shocked

You could always make something and donate it to a cause near you.  Smiley

You know....that yarn isn't BAD in my opinion. I think it looks kind of cool.

Here are some at KnittingontheNet.com

Have you checked out Lion Brand's website?  Roll Eyes

Bernat has a few nice ones, like this...

Try looking around because I know they have some more. Look under accessories instead of the ladies section.




25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Patterns for 8 yr old boy? on: July 09, 2008 08:25:37 AM
My cousins are coming to visit in the next couple of weeks, and I would love to knit their children something simple. They live in CA so I know I probably won't be able to get away with anything too wintery.

The older child (girl) is going to be in the 7th grade (what age is that?)
Here are some ideas that I was thinking for her, even though they are somewhat winter related.

or.....

Would either one be ok? I have never been to CA so I don't know how cold it gets, and if hats and scarves are used or not.

My skills are very simple. So the thought of making a tank top or something similar that is wearable is above my skills currently.

Can you think of anything that could be comparable or something that an 8 year old boy would like that is knitted? I really appreciate your help.  Smiley

I agree. One of the best places around.  Smiley

Almost everyone starts with a scarf because it is easy, and afterwards you have something you can actually use. Same way with washcloths/dishcloths.

Some different dishcloth patterns you might enjoy!

A good scarf for those who are learning, and where you can try different stitch patterns. You will probably need to sign up for a free account at Lion Brand if you don't already have one, but it is so worth it. You can access 100s of free patterns.

Thank you!  Cheesy
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Scarf problems on: April 17, 2008 01:05:42 PM
I've knitted several scarves (who hasn't!  Roll Eyes ) and noticed that after wearing them once or twice, the part that is right behind my head tends to get thin and stretched out. I've even got a few that I haven't worn yet and they are slightly thinner there than any other place on the scarf. What gives? Do other people have this problem? Because when I see pictures of peoples work, their scarves look perfect. Is this because the scarves have not been worn yet? I have also noticed that the ends of my scarves are slightly flared too. Anyone got any help for me?  Embarrassed
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Brain fart question - 5:10 basketweave ? on: April 09, 2008 12:53:56 PM
I just want to make sure that this is correct, but to make a 5:10 basketweave pattern you would do the following?

* Knit 5 stitches. Purl 5. Knit 5. Purl 5.
* Repeat for ten rows.

* Row 11, purl 5, then knit 5, purl 5, knit 5.
* Repeat for ten rows.

 Roll Eyes Is that correct?
