1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: My own PINK sweats. on: March 20, 2007 09:24:31 PM
Hi - I also want to make some sweatpants and have been stumped - what exactly is the name for "sweatshirt fabric"? And does anybody know a good online source?

Thanks so much!
2  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Found a variety of cheap handles for fat bottom bag on: April 21, 2006 11:09:18 PM
Wow, those are great deals, thank you. You guys saying this is expensive for shipping are nuts. Factor in the NO TAX you pay for ebay purchases, this is by far the cheapest I have seen. Have you all visited mjtrim.com (or mjtrimming.com?) which is where a lot of handles are sourced? They are about $7 PER HANDLE (not pair) for the same exact thing...

your hat is very cute.

Just in case anyone was wondering, they have all the Bernat yarn called for in the  pattern online at joann.com, and some of it is now on sale. Smiley

Hi - I saw a post a few down from Debbie Stoller with a link to a corrections page for HH - I looked at it and I'm pretty sure the correction for Cupcake addresses this issue. (I looked because I just bought the yarn to make this too. Smiley  I'm a brand new crocheter, so I hope I'm able to do this one!

Thank you Veronique and Londone for your kind words! Even on that yucky picture with my tummy all bruised!

Anyhoo, Londone, yes, I used doubled-up yarn (just went and checked) - the elann highland chunky or whatever it's called. I can't remember exactly how much I used (but you can find it I'm sure up earlier in the posts) but I had a lot left over. Fortunately I think the yarn was only $2.50 a skein or something, so I wasn't too upset about having ordered extra and now I have some nice wool for some hats. Smiley

Londone before you start be sure to check the author's blog Glampyre.com I think it is - and get the pattern corrections.

Veronique - After all these months I'm almost done with my candy!! Will post soon.

And in the finishing what I started department, here are photos of my completed Ubernatural:

I can't say that this was my favorite ever project, but at least I have been wearing it. And I get lots of compliments on the buttons. Smiley

8  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / Re: Smiley's yarn in Queens on: February 17, 2005 01:43:35 PM
Thanks, Meenah! I maybe should clarify, that I am a certified yarn snob (there, I said it!) and really would only be shopping for natural fibers or higher end novelty yarns. That being said, I still love a bargain! Still think it's worth the trip? I'm thinking it's a good hour away on the subway...do they have more/better in person than online?

Thanks so much!

Is it worth going out there? They are apparently having a big sale...but I'm in downtown manhattan and it looks kind of far on the J train....any opinions appreciated!!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: making money on: February 10, 2005 08:58:13 PM
Sadly you probably would have to live in a 3rd world country. The amount of money that a company would pay you to hand knit a sweater is far below the legal minimum wage in this country, considering how long it takes to knit a sweater. If you SERIOUSLY want to do this, I would put up a note on a community board in NYC (or other fashion-oriented town) like craigslist saying that you want to be a pattern knitter (that's what they're called), or a knitter for a knitwear co.

You're honestly probably better off knitting up your own sweaters and selling them on a little website you make.

Good luck to you though. Smiley
