1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Oh Jan! (girl's dress from knit and tonic) on: June 24, 2006 06:13:10 PM

A few of us over on this post are going to knit this.  Anyone else in??

I just got the yarn- Cascade Cotton Rich color 5800 (http://www.yarns-and.com/fabrics/Cascade/CAScottonRich03.jpg).  I will swatch tonight and hopefully start knitting on Monday.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / anyone made the "hug-me-tight" shrug from vintage styles for today? on: June 13, 2006 05:21:05 PM
I keep checking out this pattern at the bookstore and couldn't decide if I should buy the book considering I probably wouldn't want to make anything else from the book.  Then I came home to google other peoples results with the pattern and I found it free!  http://www.randomhouse.com/crown/pottercraftnews/mar06/pattern.html

Anyone make it?  I would love to see some all knitted up!!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / baby & toddler socks with contrast toe and heel on: June 09, 2006 10:06:53 PM
Anyone seen a pattern for babies/toddlers/kids with the contrast heel and toe?  I've never knit socks before and figured I may as well start with teeny socks for my kids and I LOVE this style.

So has anyone seen a pattern?  It doesn't have to be free.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting with Twine {IMG heavy} on: May 26, 2006 07:17:08 PM
So I was in the pharmacy stationary aisle today and decided to pick up a ball each of cotton and sisal twine.  I played around knitting a bit with the two strands held together.  One is more yarn-y and the other is more twine-y.  Here's how it turned out. 

I did it on size 15's and it's a very firm fabric. I am thinking of making the French Market Bag from Knitty, skipping the felting of course.  What do you think?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Linen Pants for my son :) on: May 25, 2006 07:04:41 AM
I have a TON of scrap fabric leftover (I sell baby slings) and it's taking over my tiny apartment so I had a girlfriend come over and we made pants for our sons.  It was my first time trying to sew clothing even though I sew everyday, even though it went pretty well.  I find linen particularly hard to work with when doing anything other than a straight hem cause it changes shape on me.  Anyways, the pants are not so exciting, but I am proud and this pic is just too cute not to share!  My son is the one on the left. 

I really need to work on my fnishing techniques to make them look more professional on the inside.  I wish I had a serger!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / ONLINE Scrub/Pajama Pants pattern for kids? on: May 15, 2006 05:16:13 PM
I am looking for an online pattern for wide-leg drawstring scrub/pajama pants patterns for children.  Or anywhere that will show me the basic shape to cut-out for the leg. I wanted to make a few pair for my 2-year old tomorrow with all my scrap fabric.  Anyone know where I can find that?

TIA!  Grin
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / attractive knitting needles on: April 24, 2006 05:17:21 PM
OK, i know this is silly, but I really like beautiful knitting needles, but I can't afford to keep buying $18 lantern moon needles for every new project.  Anyone know of any attractive needles out there that are more affordable? I really don' like the metal or acrylic/plastic look.  It just makes me so happy to knit on pretty needles! Wink
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Buttonhole Bag ***FELTED PICS*** on: April 23, 2006 10:59:21 AM
I just completed the buttonhole bga (pattern from http://www.masondixonknitting.com/archives/2005_01.html#000847).  I LOVE it!  It's for my mom made out of double stranded Manos del Uruguay. 

This is my first knitting project that I would actually not be embarrased to show off.  Actually I end up frogging most things!

Here it is...

Any felting tips? I have never felted.  I am not sure when I will get to it as I live in the city and all the laudromats have front loading machines!

I can't wait to make more buttonhole bags!!
