1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What the heck does this pattern say/mean?! on: May 09, 2008 08:37:20 PM

I am trying to make these for my DD, and I cannot figure out how to finish them off. Any ideas? Anybody?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Socks on 2 circs question.... on: April 07, 2008 10:59:15 AM
Okay, so I ordered a kit from Knitpicks that had Cat Bordhi's Book in it with 2 circs, and a hank of sock yarn. Now the first question is, in the book she refers to the sizes of the first sock as a "medium child, medium women, medium mens" sock. However, nowhere in the book is any reference made as to what defines a childs medium or a womens medium. I am thinking my size 10 feet are probably not in the "medium" definition. So how much do I cast on to make size socks for my size 10 feet? What about DHs size 13 feet?
I am in a quandry! Can anybody help?
I would like to make DD socks as her little foot would be much better to learn this new method with. She is 2.5yo, and wears a size 8 in toddler shoes. What do I cast on for that with typical fingering wt sock yarn?

So a month ago I coudn't knit. A couple books and a zillion You Tube videos later we have this! I am hooked! I have already finished 1 sock for DH (have to get more yarn) and have started another pair for my self.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I did it! OMG, I made socks! on: March 08, 2008 01:38:46 PM
I can't believe it! So I ave crocheted for years (self taught) and 3 weeks ago I decided that I would learn how to knit. So I bought a "Complete Idiot's Guide to Knitting" and started reading. Made a couple of dish cloths and then decided I would try to make some socks for the 2yo. She picked out the yarn and I started watching You Tube videos and read "Getting Started Knitting Socks" (Ann Budd).
I made one of the basic patterns with some crappy acrylic. And WOW!
The heel turn was hideous, but enough You Tube watching and I finally got it!

Now, I have found a LYS that I visited yesterday, bought some new bamboo DPNs and some great speckled lime green wool and I am going to try socks for my size 10 boats next!

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / It's done! It's done! on: January 10, 2008 05:36:55 PM
Last summer I was looking at all my scraps and wondering what to do with them. Then it hit me! I will make a quilt for the twin bed we were going to be buying our oldest daughter (as baby #2 was due in Oct). So I start cutting squares- gotta love the rotary cutter for that! I have made alot of scrub tops, shirts, skirts, etc in the last 10 years and had a really bright and colorful mix of fabrics.
I cut out 6" squares, I then laid them out on the floor to find a great mix of colors/patterns. Then I sewed them into blocks of 9. Then sewed them all together until I had a twin bed size quilt top. The backing fabric is flannel, which I thought may help keep the quilt from sliding off the bed. However, a few months passed between the original purchase and piecing it together. I don't recommend that!  Cheesy
I ended up needing more backing fabric and they did not have anymore of the original stuff I bought so that is why there is a band of darker green!
Anyway, just thought I would share with folks that can appreciate a good quilt story!  Grin
The label is a nifty little trick my new Pfaff can do!

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Crackly stuff in baby toys? on: December 27, 2007 06:22:01 PM
I was wondering what you all would use for that crackly stuff you find in baby toys? I was thinking of making a small fleece square with ribbon "tags" all around it and thought maybe some crackly stuff between the fleece squares would be a nice addition.
Any ideas?
