1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lace Issues on: August 07, 2008 11:11:24 PM
All right, so I've learned only just the basics of knitting from my Aunt Colleen. And by the basics, I mean, knit, purl, cast on, bind off.
Thus far I've been able to make scarves. Lots of scarves. My favorite of which (the Gryffindor Scarf) has been lost to the world. My Dad was in charge of making sure it got home from winter break, but alas, it did not. However, as I search for the right yarn to make a replacement, I though to myself "Wouldn't it be excellent if I could make a sweater. You know, one I'd actually wear." I'm a rather finicky 17 year old and as far as fashion goes, most knitted things go out the window.
BUT I found a pattern I LOVE and I feel like I can make.
I have one issue.
The lace confuses me.

This is the pattern.
I get the knitting and purling on sides, I get the knitting two together.
What the hell is "slipping two stitches as if you're going to knit them, and then knit them together"? Isn't that just knitting two stitches together?
Also, what does it mean to "yarn over"?

I'm sorry if these are stupid questions, but I've made enough scarves, and I'm sick of people thinking that I'm making Cat-in-the-Hat-hat. By knitting. I'd like to try this, but I don't know how to start as the pattern starts you off with the lace.

Thanks in advance for your help.
I hope to see you all much more frequently!

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / 4 Necklaces and 1 Pair of Earrings on: June 21, 2007 09:48:47 PM
This is my first post! Call me Chelsea,I'm 15 and pretty new to jewelry making. I've been hovering around here a little bit, not posting or anything, just hanging out and watching everything you all are posting, and figured it was about time I put some stuff up. Please be nice, I've only been making jewelry for a little bit!


That's one I made for my friend, Amanda. It's for her birthday.
Swarovski and a pretty bead I found.


Swarovski & 2 little glass hearts.


These are made from thick wire and 2 swarovski crystals (as well as one that died in the process of being made. We mourn it's loss) After shaping the wire, I had to hammer it so it would stay in place (hence the death of one crystal)


And finally, this one took me all through Monty Python and the Meaning of Life AND Monty Python and the Life of Brian to make. It's a three stranded necklace. One strand is chain with a fused dichrotic glass heart charm. One is turqouise seed beads. And the other is white seed beads with blue crystal-like beads in there.

edit: forgot this one!

This is for my mom for her birthday. It's a shell we picked up in florida and a clear bead.
All right so there you go! Fire away!
