 i love love love slouchy hats... and scarves...
and i am 21...i am alos pretty sure that they would love anything that you make them. A cabled scarf with pom poms is quick and easy and is everywhere this season... so it would probably be a hit too if they really like mainstream stuff!
Good luck!
3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: stitch 'n bitch page-a-day calendar on: November 29, 2007 05:23:19 PM
thats a really good question actually! another question for the repeat buyers.. do they repeat the same paterns from the books all the time?
I bought the one this year and found that most of the patterns I had already... or were variations of ones in the book.
hmmmm....

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: My name is Anna, and I failed at knitting my first sweater on: November 25, 2007 09:07:54 AM
Hi Anna!

Don't feel too bad. I have been knitting for about 4 1/2 years now and i still have yet to knit something other than a scarf or a hat or a purse that i love to wear. My sweater I am currently working on has been frogged three times already and is on its way to the frog pond yet again (4th times going to be the charm! Roll Eyes)

Sometimes i think its yarn karma... or luck. If you hate it even after you put on the other sleeve, just rip it and use the yarn for something different. Its the beauty of knitting, if it doesn't work out you can start over... and curse at it. Plus if you throw yarn/ projects at the wall they won't break and its very theraputic Wink

Good luck on your next project!

In the spring/summer 2006 issue of Vogue Knitting there is a knitted corset that is actually boned and functional. It looks a little more advanced and a lot more trouble than it could be worth..

It also looks a tad bit short on the model but you should be able to modify it to get it where you want it... you may want to try and find the whole magazine because there is a section in there in the middle about attaching the boning with a crochet hook

I think there is a pattern in Alterknits as well but i think its only a mock corset...

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Advice needed on Franken-Cowl-Minidress on: September 01, 2007 05:27:00 PM
hmmm....
I don't have the pattern for somewhat cowl but it looks like its just a top down raglan with a big U neck ( which later has the ribbing- the cowl- added to it) I would work that until below the bustline, add the waistband by changing to the smaller needles as indicated by vogue and work the k1, P1 rib... I don't even think you need the increasing that is written there and then work the skirt in reverse like it was mentioned before by spaghetti.

To be perfectly honest... I would do it all in the round, since its started that way. If you have gauge widthwise with the 5.5's, I would use those needles for both parts since the stitches for the width is the same and since patterns usually say knit for so many inches you should be fine with the difference. so instead of going nuts trying to figure it out... I would probably work the bottom of the skirt in what ever the rib at the bottom is supposed to be... for the first row evenly increase to what number of stitches there is supposed to be at the waistband of the skirt(this number should be double the book- front and back together since you are in the round).  Work the rib pannels. then however often it told you to decrease, increase one in the edges of the purl sections of the pannels. So your ribs are the same size like shown in the picture but the parts inbetween that you don't see vary. Do this until you hit the number of stitches you are supposed to have for the skirt (this number should be double the book- front and back together again). Work a couple of rows of garter stitch and bind off...
And hopefully that works.. or makes any sense to you what so ever... I have an idea in my head, whether or not it makes sense to other people is sometimes a different story!
As for the sleves i don't know what you are planning on doing but for some reason I can picture, elbow length sleeves that have the ribbing at the bottow that has a slit and a couple of buttons!

Good luck with this project and please post it after you finish!
