Hmm. Either embroidery or crosstitch would work I think.  Embroidery, I'm guessing you'd just trace the lines. I can probably do that much

Does anyone have any suggestions on websites/tutorials/whatever for making a pattern out of a photograph? I'd love to do a pic of my grandparents

Sugar and Cream is what I used when I first was learning to knit and from what I remember, it got softer (a little at least) the more it was worked with.  And after washing with a ton of fabric softener.

I started a blanket w/ sugar and cream.  I don't know what I was smoking

Updated stash photo, since my recent purchase and now w/ possibly better lighting.

Here are my babies (resting comfortably w/ my other obsession--old cookbooks).  They don't look menacing, but really they taunt me.

You can't tell but I did use quite a bit of that big ball on the far right last week.  I'm making some improvement.  A teensy bit at least
25  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: I want to display my cute calendar pics... on: June 05, 2005 02:04:56 PM
I had a little pin-up calendar, and wanted to do something w/ the pages of the pin-ups doing housework/cooking to go in my kitchen (which is decorated in 50s housewife)

I was going to decoupage but I'm far too lazy, so I just bought a big frame at Michaels and used the back side of the white paper that was in it for the backing.  Then I glued the pictures around the edges. And in the middle of the frame is an old dishwasher ad.  It cost like 5.00 for the frame so was really cheap to do.  But I think it's cute and I get lots of compliments on it.  It's simple, which matches everything else in the kitchen, but you could get more creative w/ the frame or the backing. Or get a few smaller frames and do a few collages. 

eta: (crappy/badly lit) pictures of what i did:

Yahiara, you should check out www.zooba.com. I just got the book for 9.99 w/ free shipping from them (it's a membership thing, 9.99 a month and one book per month w/ free shipping)

I'm so happy to finally have this book. I had checked it out of the library a couple of times.  I keep looking at the pictures and drooling

Ok, I'l give explaining it a go.  Math is not my friend, so I may screw it up

k3 (equals 3 stitches)
ssk (1)
yo (1)
k5 (5)
yo k1 (2)
yo k1 (2)
yo k1 (2)
yo k1 (2)
yo k1 (2)
yo (1)
k5 (5)
yo (1)
k2tog (1)
k3 (3)

equals 31 stitches.  Are you remembering to do the (yo, k1) 5 times?

Your yarn overs will add 8 stitches, and you'll decrease by two w/ the ssk and the k2tog  (25 plus 8 minus 2=31)

Hope that helps

My branching out is on hold until my new yarn arrives. I really thought one ball would be enough, but there's my math skills for you.

It's a pity too, because I was on a roll there for a bit and am nearly done

Well I was in three different yarn stores and didn't buy a thing. I thought I was doing so well then I came home and bought yarn online.
I bought the skein I needed to finish a project but so that I could justify spending so much on shipping I bought two skeins of lornas laces shepherd sock.  I don't even know how to knit socks!


I think I'll be taking that acrylic button now.  What's lower than acrylic? hrmph.

The Knitpicks catalog came in the mail today. I think I'm screwed.
