1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help With Pattern on: November 13, 2009 07:48:31 AM

I have been making this Spidery Tank: http://www.interweaveknits.com/galleries/bonus/summer-2009/Spidery-Tank.asp since the summer and have finally got to the shaping of the top. This is my first time knitting a garment ( I just taught myself how to knit last winter with a scarf) and ran into a little hiccup.

I have finished the right front strap and put the rem.  stiches on a stitch holder as the pattern says. Then it says to start the left front strap. Okay, but my yarn is still attached to the very top of the right strap.

Do I fasten off, leave a long peice, or grab a new skein of yarn and leave the rest of that ball attached?  I have read through the rest of the pattern and it doesn't say. What is the best way to proceed?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / New to Knitting on: July 08, 2008 01:43:09 PM
Hi there! 

I'm a crochet'er and I would really like to learn how to knit. Before I pick up the long and pointy needles, I was wondering what sort of patterns/items are the best to learn with? Any suggestions are appreciated, the last thing I want to do is start a project that I won't be able to make sense of and abandon it.  Smiley
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Knit pattern to crochet pattern on: June 05, 2008 12:57:53 PM
A friend of mine found some vintage crochet and knitting magazines at a garage sale and picked them up for me. There are some really cute tank/halter top patterns from the 70's in one of the magazines that we would like to try and make. Unfortunately, they are knitting patterns, and I only know how to crochet. Does anyone know how to convert a knit pattern into a crochet pattern? Or should I just learn how to knit? Thanks!

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Ideas for a Tea Party Bridal Shower on: April 03, 2008 11:28:46 AM
Hello! My mom is remarrying this June and my sister and I are in charge of the bridal shower. It's not going to be a typical bridal shower with gifts, but it will be a surprise for her.

We were thinking of a vintage tea party (1880-1900), but when I was googling vintage parties 1920's and 50's were coming up. Does anyone have any decorating ideas or things to do? We want to try and stay away from the traditional games, they don't really apply anymore (what to name your first child, recipies to get you started, etc.) so we are a little stuck.

Any help or comments are greatly appreciated!

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Advent Calendar for my boyfriend on: November 27, 2007 10:17:42 AM
I was inspired by burstandbloom's advent calendar so with lots of help from skelectica I made my own!





**EDIT** Inside everyday is a peice of our favorite chocolate and about half the days have a little something extra. I made coupons for dinner out, game nights, etc. and he's also got a video game and a scarf, which are wrapped individually and sitting outside the calendar with the right date on them. Thanks for all the great comments!

I finally finished this afhan that I started a year ago. It's my second one, but the first one won't stay together so I'm quite proud of this one  Cheesy
