1  CANADA / Ontario / Re: Zeller's Craft Departments in Ottawa--which is best? on: May 02, 2008 09:47:14 PM
I think the Zellers on Merivale Road has(had?) a big supply of yarn. Well, big as far as Zellers goes - a whole aisle's worth! But they recently renovated, and while I've been there a few times since they moved stuff around, I haven't actively looked for the crafts section so I'm not sure where it is.

I should be going there tomorrow to pick up some stuff, so I can check and get back to you. In the meantime, perhaps call the stores individually and find out if they carry it? Might be tedious, but that way you'd be sure.

Hey all!

I need a listing of craft sales/places I can sell my crafty wares, in Ottawa. I know of Ladyfest and their regular craft sales, but what about others? I can easily fit in to a grandma's craft sale, anyway; my stuff is for all ages!

Anyone have anything they know of? Even a few hours outside of Ottawa is fine.

Featured project! My first one! I am so giddy and giggly right now. Cheesy Cheesy Thanks to everyone who hit the This Rocks button! You guys and gals are supercool!

And Jenicat, the hat is awesome! Looks great! I'm amused that I've made a pattern that so many gamergeek guys can now bug their wives/moms/girlfriends/girls-who-knit-that-they-know to knit these for them. Cheesy I'm glad I made it an easy knit!

OMG heeeee happy *bounce*

haha! Very cute!

The pattern is up over on my thread, but yours looks great too! Shorter hat is indeed a good idea for younger kids. Smiley

Thanks for your patience all, it's finally here!

Aw, thanks for all the nice comments, all!

And hey, when you make the hat, POST PICS HERE! I would adore seeing variations of the hat.

I was thinking of making different coloured ones.  Cheesy

Thanks all!

UPDATE: The pattern is so close to completion I'm going crazy with anticipation. I will show it soon! Promise promise!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Chain Chomp Hat (pics and pattern link!) on: January 16, 2008 11:28:02 PM
Hey all!

I, like many a gamer, have an unhealthy fascination with the chain chomps that inhabit the Mario Bros. World.

So, I knit one!

It was easy and quick to make, and I definitely plan on making more for friends!

The pattern is available here, through my blog. Any comments/suggestions/errata are more than welcome!

EDIT: The pattern is also on Ravelry, for anyone on there! I'd love to know if you guys are knitting the hat, and to see pics!

(The link will not work if you aren't a Ravelry member, sorry!)
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Jack's Beanstalk Blanket on: January 09, 2008 05:31:46 PM
Hey all!

I wanted to share my newest FO, which is also a design of my own creation: Jack's Beanstalk Blanket.

The blanket was designed and knit for my new baby nephew, Jack, who was welcomed into the world in early December. I finished casting off the blanket only an hour before I got the phone call announcing his birth!

Here's a gross yellowish photo of the unblocked blanket. (Thumbnails lead to big image)

And here's the finished product:

Knit with Patons Classic Wool Merino in a deep foresty green.

The pattern is simple, consisting of three Vandyke lace columns and a seed stitch border.

It's one of the biggest projects I've done, and I'm very proud of it.

The pattern will be available soon, and I'll be sure to post it here!

Hey guys and gals!

Thanks so much for the kind words. Cheesy Just a pattern update: The crappy, scribbled pattern is currently being test-knitted by a pal on Ravelry, and I'm waiting for her careful notes on the subject before I write out a full pattern. BUT, as she is knitting it -right now-, the pattern should be ready for early January at the latest!

Sorry for the not-ready-for-Christmas-ness! But I'll update here as soon as the pattern is done!
