1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / jewelry making kit for Mom's bday - what to include? on: March 14, 2007 11:49:38 AM
I'm a knitter, not a jewelry maker, but my lovely Mom has been getting into beads and I'd like to set her up with a jewelry making kit for her birthday next month.  What do ya'll think are the important tools and stuff to include?  Right she's just doing individual strands of beads - mainly bracelets - and I'd love to see her branch out to earings and some cool necklaces. 

Thanks so much for your help!  Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / paintbox clutch from knitting bag - pattern question on: January 17, 2007 08:48:41 PM
I'm getting started on the Paintbox Clutch from knittingbag.com. Seems like a simple enough pattern but I need a little help...

The beginning of the pattern reads,
1.   Work st st for 4 rows
2.   Purl 1 row on the right side (RS)
3.   Then work st st for 4 more rows.  Purl 1 row on RS
4.   Work st st for 8 rows.

So, maybe I'm over thinking this but when I start the second set of stst on the 3rd line do I still start with a knit or purl row??  Smiley 


3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / crunchy, noisy fabric for baby toys? on: November 12, 2006 12:47:19 PM
I was wondering if anybody knew what the crunchy, noisy stuff that is often in baby toys is?  I'm working on some little stuffies for my new bebe and would love to have the ears be crunchy like the ones you see in the stores.  Smiley 

Any ideas?  I can't figure out what that stuff is!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Malene Birger Shawl Cropped Cardigan - - any thoughts on construction? on: October 13, 2006 09:01:35 PM
Somebody posted a link to some great knitting inspiration pictures today and on that site I stumbled across this super cute Malene Birger Shawl Cropped Cardigan. 

Any similar patterns out there?  Or any thoughts on how to go about constructing this?  It seems fairly simple but I haven't branched out to doing my own patterns yet.  Any thoughts on the construction would be great!   Thanks!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / children's earflap hat pattern on: March 18, 2006 10:54:06 AM
Hi all!
I've been googling and searching all over for a really cute kid's earflap hat pattern for my 3 year old niece.  I'd love something super cute like Kate Gilbert-style.  Any recommendations?
Thanks!  Smiley
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / hmmm...is this a drop stitch scarf or done w/ two needle sizes? on: September 27, 2005 11:17:00 AM
Quickie question for a strictly st st knitter so far...I found this pretty scarf on etsy.com (http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=14262)  and was wondering if it is done w/ a drop stitch or do you think that it is done w/ two different size needles?  Isn't it lovely?  I may need to buy it 'cause it's so cute and chunky!

Thank you!
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / advice on tshirt booth setup on: May 12, 2005 11:32:14 AM
My husband, brother-in-law and I are are venturing into our own tshirt business.  We are planning to be web-based but will be doing festival/fair type things as well. 

Our very first festival is the Fiesta Filipina in San Francisco in June.  We will have 13 different shirts (Mens and Womens) total in sizes S-XL.  All shirts priced at $20 each.

I would love some advice regarding a few things...
1) How in the world can we manage the large number of product we'll have in our little 10x10 booth?
2) Any ideas on how to display the great graphics on the shirts w/o hanging 13 different shirts up on the front of the booth?
3) For packaging, do we need bags?

That's it for now!  Thank you in advance for the help!  I'm going to go read through allll of the posts in this topic now.  Heehee!
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / business in one state, shipping out of another on: May 09, 2005 11:31:23 AM
Hi all,
I've been reading these business-related boards for the past few days and have found great advice - thanks! 

My husband, brother-in-law and I are starting an online retail site selling mainly tshirts at this time.  The design, development and printing of the products is all taking place in WA state where my brother-in-law lives as he is the founder of our little project.  My husband and I will be managing the business from a day-to-day perspective from our home in CA - this includes processing orders and shipping out the products to customers. 

That's what confuses me...should we get our business license in CA or WA...or both? Anybody else come up against a similar situation - your advice would be helpful!  I'm planning to call about it in both states but I'm realllly hoping to end up licensing in WA since the fees are much lower.  We'll see...

Here's to all of our new business adventures!  Whoop!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what stitch is this - raised V's on: April 04, 2005 06:51:06 PM
Just wondering if anybody could tell me what the raised V stitch is used on the Paintbox Clutch from knittingbag.com? - http://www.knittingbag.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/221
I saw it and think it would be great on something I'm playing w/ right now.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / weekend knitting fluffy throw - classic elite bravo sub? on: March 29, 2005 07:11:38 PM
Hi all,
I am loving the look of the "fluffy afghan/lap blanket" in Melanie Falick's "Weekend Knitting" book but the cost of the Classic Elite Bravo is a little too much for me right now.  Any ideas on a good sub that just happens to be in the great colors that the Classic Elite Bravo comes in?  Probably wishfull thinking.  Smiley

Here's the specs on the Classic Elite Bravo -
40% rayon, 35% mohari, 13% silk, 6% wool, 6% nylon
3 sts. = 1" on size 11 needles

Also, if anybody has done this throw I'd love to hear your comments and see pictures.
