The white tassles on the end were a nice, subtle touch. ;P

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Mary Jane slippers from scraps! - TUTE ADDED! on: January 16, 2008 07:02:19 AM
Someone asked about a sole. I made a bunch of these for Christmas, and I CO 30 Stiches and K10, P10 and K10 (and on the reverse side I'd P10, K10, P10). It's flexible and comfortable, but it also helps a surprising amount with the shaping of the slipper.

The second hat has a gorgeous colourway, what yarn is it?

The jumper looks so, so, so niceeee!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting in Public: Where you do it on: January 10, 2008 04:35:12 AM
It basically depends on what I'm doing and what level of concentration it takes for me, but this year (at uni) I generally don't knit in classes because it deprives me of eye contact and since the classes are so friggin' big I would feel out of touch with what we're doing. It's also very notes-heavy, and a lot of it requires my full concentration. So I will doodle while listening, but I won't knit because it's too over the top. I did knit in my school last year, and it did help my concentration back then? But I wasn't knitting stuff I found difficult, so it was all about mechanics. It might also have something to do with the fact that we didn't get any grades at that school. Now I have to pay some level of attention to what I'm doing. I do knit everywhere else, though - on the bus, in the park, in restaurants, with friends. I love knitting!

Another thing to remember (that I always forget myself Tongue) is that when buying items, you're also paying for the design and different designers value that aspect of their work differently (in the litteral sense, not that they think it's less important or anything). So all of a sudden you have a big factor X when calculating the price of whatever it is.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Friday Night Knitters Book... on: January 08, 2008 03:23:07 AM
It wasn't life-changing, but it was a good read. I'm a litterature student, so I've read my share of the classics, but I do have a secret, shameful stash (hidden wayyyy back in my cupboard, like it was porn or something Tongue) of chick lit. The kind that makes Bridget Jones Nobel price-worthy. I've read my share of the fluffy litterature, but it was a really nice change to read fluff centered around one of my biggest hobbies and the things I appreciate about it that go unnoticed (the sense of community, friendship) instead of shopping and cosmopolitans!

Is this the same as the friday night knitting club? I bought the pocket version at the airport, and the woman in the bookshop was knitting this awesome traditional sweater. She just winked at me, and I felt as if we were in the same club or something... Like the Knitting Illuminati!

I'm just into my second repeat of Liesel and if it looks anything like yours I will die a very happy woman! I love the colour you've used, it suits your mother's colouring very well.

Thank you for the pattern! It's such a tempting knit, but I'm still a wee bit intimidated. It's in my "some day" queue! And my Ravelry queue, haha.
