11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Anthropologie is a total rip-off! on: October 15, 2007 05:50:05 PM
I'm sorry, people just need to learn how to knit:

Anthropologie even refers you to the pattern (that we've all seen before here on Craftster) from Twinkle's Big City Knits!

$228?!

Sorry, I just had to use some exclamation points when I saw this on their website.  Don't you love knowing that you can make this for a fraction of the price...

absolutely gorgeous.  I think I have another project to start now.. you know, after the 400 other ones in my Ravelry queue.

Here's my hat!  I used one ENTIRE skein of Manos del Uruguay, held double.  I added a couple rows before decreasing, and then added a few more rows near the end.  I need to recenter the button on this, but after that, yippee!!
Thanks for the pattern!  I will be making my husband one this time... actually, this was supposed to be his, but I ran out of yarn.   Wink

I love it!  I think I might buy that book now... the sweatshirt looks great on her!  It goes well with her eyes... you sure you don't want to keep it?   Wink

I knit this about a year ago using the same yarn... I never check gauge (c'mon, you know I'm not the only one), but it fits.  I don't have any pics because my mom is doing the crochet edging for me.  yes, it's taking her a year to get around to it... she thinks I should learn how to do it.  Have fun!

Awesome!  I just added your pattern to my queue on Ravelry.  I was showing my husband and he decided he wanted one for himself.  AND he likes your version better.  Thanks for sharing!!

I love it!  Kudos to you for modeling it for us-- it is so much easier to see how it turned out rather than just looking at a flat picture of the knitted items.  It looks nice on you Smiley

Me again! 

What caston method did everyone use?

I used the double cast-on from stitch 'n bitch.

bluesmom:  How many skeins of cotton ease did it take for the blanket? 

You did a beautiful job on it, by the way!

Thanks!

I used just over 4 skeins.  If I cut out one repeat of the pattern, it would have been 4 skeins.  I used size 9 needles, but probably could have gotten away with 8s because the blanket was a little too wide in my opinion.

A lot of people seem to like audiobooks... myself included...

I was thinking, since the whole filosophy of craftster is DIYODS (If you don't know what that means, look at the top banner every now and then)...
I have a scanner, and OCR software... anyone knows of a decent text-to-speach software (freeware, or open software if available?) 'Cause I have a lot of books to read, a lot of stuff to knit, and too serious a case of astigmatism to read from a book while knitting (I hate knitting with my glasses on).

Tongue


There is a program that I use with my students that have severe reading disabilities.  It's called Kurzweil 3000.  It's very expensive (the school bought it), but I believe there is some way to get a 90-day trial version... just for fun.  It reads websites, pdfs, whatever.
