261  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitty Surprise is up! on: October 26, 2004 06:33:20 PM
The glossary on www.stitchguide.com tells me this:

pass slipped stitch over knit (or purl) stitch

Thanks. Smiley

The slippers didn't take too long -- a few hours each, I guess.  I just knit them on the tram on my way to and from work, so I'm not really sure.  I didn't put a button on mine (it's just decorative), but the other side looks the same as the side you can see.

The ribbing on the bottom feels lovely on my feet. Smiley

264  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / a hat and some slippers on: October 22, 2004 05:22:24 PM
Here's some knitting I've recently finished. Smiley

The slippers from this thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=14885.0



And a hat based on the S&B Sparkle Hat, but knit with different yarn on different sized needles, more rows and more stitches CO, with eyelet holes instead of sparkles, and a thin thread of purple sparkly yarn added through the middle band. Smiley

Thanks. Cheesy

My mother and grandmother (and probably great-grandmother, etc.) all were fantastic at embroidery.  My mum doesn't do it so much anymore (she's been working on the same long-stitch thing for years, but had cataract/operations/etc., so can't do too much of it), but I have a beautiful ballerina doilie that she did when she was young.  She also has a bunch of pieces that her mother did (hand-made lace around the edges and everything) which are just beautiful.  I might scan the ballerina embroidery and post it one day. Smiley  So anyway, hopefully it runs in the family!

I got my Stitch-it Kit in the mail yesterday, and just did my first embroidery!  Well, it's technically not my very first embroidery -- I embroidered Bart Simpson onto my sewing bag at high school in 1991, and recently put some letters onto coats I was making for my puppies -- but it's my first apart from those. Smiley

I'm going to do the kitty on the other tea-towel, and I've bought myself some more linen to make a whole set of tea-towels.  I also plan on doing some arty-farty embroidery on paintings for an art competition I'm entering, so we'll see how that goes. Smiley

That is the most adorable thing ever.  I love it. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
269  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing Strechy Fabric? Please help! on: October 16, 2004 05:25:19 AM
You should sew stretchy fabric with a zigzag stitch as well.

Also, I'm around a size 8.5-9 (Australian women's shoe sizes) and they fit my feet fine.  If my feet were much larger though, I'd probably add some more stitches to the rows.
