1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Beginner sewer needs help with "Snazzy Knitting Needle Case" on: January 17, 2011 05:14:02 PM
I got the pattern "Snazzy Knitting Needle Case" from Connecting Threads (actually, ordered it through KnitPicks but that doesn't matter).  Luckily, it's now a free pattern and you can find it really easily.  So far, it's been going really well. The directions are really easy to follow - even for a complete newbie sewer like myself.  I've got almost all the pockets sewn on but I'm at the end of step 18 and I'm worried there should be more to attaching the cable pouches. I followed steps 14-18 and now have three cable pouches sewn on by their bottoms (actually 6 because they're all folded in half) but because they're not sewn up the side(s) at all, they're incredibly floppy and flimsy. Can this possibly be it?!?!  I was REALLY expecting a step telling me to sew the left side of all these pockets to the lining.  Huh
I really hope this is posted in the right place and there's somebody out there that can help me.
Thank you in advance.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Finished sweater - how do I enlarge the neck?! on: November 18, 2009 10:35:24 AM
Hello all,

I finished making my first baby sweater but, now that the baby is here, I realize the neck is WAY too small. The yarn is very slick (it's Knitpicks Shine Worsted weight if you're familiar) so I'm reluctant to sew seams on the shoulder and cut it, but I think this is the only way because I already did the collar. Any suggestions on how to do this? I did it to a dog sweater I made once. It didn't look very nice in the end... but it was for a dog and it ended up on the dog's tummy so nobody minded much  Wink Being a baby sweater I would like it to look nice. I'm a pretty experienced knitter, but a very inexperienced seamstress.

3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Queen of Hearts Bikini on: October 08, 2007 05:56:40 AM
I knit the Queen of Hearts bikini to enter in my town's annual Fall Fair to spice things up a little. I was skeptical for a long time... until it was finished and I tried it on. I really love it.


Turns out the judges at the fair really didn't like it but that's another story.
