I want to knit some scarves, socks, hats, etc. for a charity my church is giving to. I've already made a scarf (and a pretty nice one, I think), but it's super itchy. What type(s) of yarn is comfortable and good for these projects?
I have a smallish (maybe 12x12) room and all it has in it right now is a bed and craft supplies (all over the floor). It has carpet (which I HATE) and a low ceiling. What to do with it?! I have an OK closet as well.
I don't know what color to paint my walls. I want it to be a very sunny, bright (but not TOO bright) room since it's in the basement. I was thinking maybe a light springy green or blue, maybe even orange. =/ Help!
Okay, I see all these different "acronyms" everywhere in patterns and online. What do they mean? For example, I've seen W&T, RS row, WS row, etc. Is there maybe a knitting "dictionary" as to what all these mean? Can someone help? Thanks in advance for your time!
My friend's birthday is August 8th (I think-somewhere around there) and I need some ideas for birthday presents for her. She is having a luau party (she sent these AWESOME message-in-a-bottle invitations in an actual bottle!) soon and would kind of like to get/make her something that would match the theme. Here is some info:
Occasion: Birthday Relationship to me: Friend Gender: Female Age: Turning 14 I believe. Likes: blue, stuffed animals (maybe not one this year since she got ALL stuffed animals last year), christian music, country, crafts (I guess), being outside playing Dislikes: I don't really know.. I have to ask her about some of these things. Hobbies: Reading, Singing, listening to music (country and christian mostly), making clothes for a stuffed bear she has (hand sewing), cutting pictures from magazines to tape on her wall (her room is the size of a closet-- literally) Style: Modern, sporty (kind of), she doesn't really have a style. It's well, average. Other: She has 3 dogs and 1 hamster and is fairly tall. She likes walkig (we walked around her block about 15 times in 90 degree weather!!), designing and drawing (I think), and just lots of things.
Okay, I am a beginner knitter and while I was knitting, it seemed my (aluminum) needles had somehow bent or curved. It made me questions whether I should get different needles or not, which brings me to my question, what needles work best? Wooden, Bamboo, Aluminum, Steel, what?
Stated in the title, I have TONS of items I could use, but either no ideas or ideas, but no supplies to make the craft (like a glue gun, drill, kiln, etc. stuff like that). Well, here's my loot:
-Bottlecaps (2) -Cardstock (2 packs) -Tacky and Elmer's Glue (1 of each) -Wine Bottle Corks (4 or 5 I think) -Piece of Cardboard (2) -Black Wire (1 roll) -Masking Tape (1 roll) -Duct Tape (1 roll) -Magazines (5) -Clothespins (5 I think) -Puzzle Pieces (Numerous pieces) -2-inch Yarn Pieces (LOTS) -Extra Hemp (Not big enough for jewelry) -Acrylic and Watercolor Paint (1 large "kit" of Watercolor and 6-7 bottles of Acrylic) -Watercolor, Tracing, Sketch, Etc. Paper (1 pad of each) -Scrapbooking Stickers (1 pack)
And I probably have tons more, but I can't remember all of it. Help?
How about a sailor or ship swap. It could even be piratey! This idea was inspired by the CUTEST/COOLEST anchor/sailor wallet ever, that I got from a previous swap. It got me thinking that now I need a cool purse to match. x] So, what do you guys think?
I have a small 10x12 "room" in the basement. I say "room" because well, it's not finished. It doesn't have a door or walls. It's just studs. It's really dark, cold, and I don't have much storage. I am nothing but a poor middle school student (though I have a bit of money), so I need cheap-ish ideas. Anything will do! Thank you everyone!
Hello! I think a candy or sweets swap would be a lot of fun. People could make things from clay, stencil, the ideas are endless! And everybody likes SOME kind of sweet or candy. Right? Post your comments!
