1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Kaari from Norah Gaughan Vol. 1 on: September 18, 2008 12:20:23 AM
Thank you so much for all of your help. I'll sign in to ravelry and have a look there too. And it's nice to know that I can use up some of my stash for this project. It's the perfect sweater for me. I'm grateful for all of your help. Thanks again.  Kiss

Wow, what a fabulous sweater. I love it! And it looks great on you. I've been searching for the perfect sweater pattern for a couple of weeks now. And nothing really jumped out at me until I saw yours. The pockets are a great idea too.
I would never be able to find the pattern for this sweater, in the area that I live in. It's a french speaking area and finding patterns in english is impossible. So, I would have to get the pattern online.
Could someone please point me in the right direction, to where I could get this pattern?
And would I have to buy the whole book in order to get this one pattern?
Would it be ok if I asked you what the gauge/tension is for this sweater? I'm just wondering because then I'd know if it's best to get a chunky yarn, or if I could use up some of my worsted weight.
And one more thing.
I was wondering about the fit. Is the fit true to the pattern? Or is the sizing a little generous? Or does it tend to be a bit on the smaller side?
I would really appreciate any help that you can give me. For finding the pattern online, and how the sizing is.
And I hope it's not too difficult for an advanced beginner.
Thanks so much.

Wow, what a fantastic idea. It's really cute. My daughter is a former ballerina and I'd love to make her one of these. Is there any chance that you might be posting a pattern for it? It would also look adorable, to make a pair for a little girl.

Wow, your skirt is fabulous! Are you ever lucky to have a Mom who put in so much time, effort, and love, to make you this beautiful skirt. Do you have any idea where she might have gotten the pattern from?
Because I've never seen a knitted skirt I've liked before. Until I saw yours. This skirt I would definately wear.
It looks great on you.

I'm sorry that it took me forever to answer. But I haven't been on here in a very long time. I would like to keep the length of the sleeves the same, but just with less ribbing.
And I was wondering if anyone tried to make this in a larger size? If so, I'd love it if you could please share the pattern with me. It looks like such a cosy sweater and I'd really like to try and make this. But I think that the size small would be too small on me now.
I'd really appreciate any help from anyone, who's made this in a larger size.

Thanks for the link to the pattern, and the info. on the yahoo group. I think that I'll join if I can find it. Because I have a mountain of worsted weight yarn to use up.
Thanks again, and what a great job you did on both.

I'm amazed at such talent for a first time sweater maker.
My first sweater was a bit of a disaster with the buttonholes. But yours look fantastic.
Wonderful job. I've often pondered about making the 'Presto Changeo' sweater. It looks complicated but when I read the pattern, it doesn't seem too difficult.
Congratulations on becoming an aunt twice.
And one more thing. Would you mind if I ask you where you got the pattern from, for the grey sweater?
And keep up the great work.
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: My greeting card project hit a snag, any suggestions? on: August 21, 2008 08:57:28 AM
What a lovely card you made. I'm new to card making myself. But I purchased both a gold and silver pen for writing inside dark cards. The gold and silver will also go great together when you want to do some embossing in those colours. I'm now searching for a white one.
Do you have a ribbon punch? You have a bit of red on the face of your card. So I think that you could attach some white paper inside your card using ribbon. I think that red would look best. Feed the ribbon to the front of the card, and tie it vertically in a bow. If you want it to look old fashioned, try using natural raffia to tie it up.
That's my 2 cents worth. I hope that it helps.  Grin

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / The Knitting Pal on: December 01, 2007 04:47:27 PM
Hi everyone,

I have the opportunity to buy something called "The Knitting Pal" from someone, and I'm hoping that somebody might have some information for me on how this Knitting Pal works.
Apparently this item can speed up your knitting time dramatically, and you can use any type of yarn with it. It also come with a few patterns. I think she said 3 or 5 of them. It also comes with a few needles, clamps & 5 sections. I know of 1 person who used 1 of these in the past, and she completed a very large blanket within 3 weeks.
The person selling it is not a knitter so she can't answer any questions that I have about it.

Because I have never seen one in person, I have a few question in the hopes that somebody can help me out.
Oh, this is for the older red  one. Not the pink one apparently "As Seen On Tv".
I would greatly appreciate any input about this item if you know how it works. Or if you could explain the concept on how this all works and what it can do, that would be terrific.  Grin

# 1 - Can you use this item with any pattern?

# 2 - Do you have to use it clamped down to a table or can you use it for making smaller items, by putting it
        on your lap?

# 3 - Can I use it with all of the sections attached to one another for making wider items, by just putting it in
        my lap? Or, do I have to clamp it down?

# 4 - How do you use this to make large blankets when it only comes with 5 sections, and each section is 7
        1/2" wide? Or do I have to knit a certain width of a blanket the regular way, and then add width to it by
        using this item also?

Thanks so much for any help that you can give to me.
