41  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting pattern chart in italian - help? on: April 16, 2004 12:01:37 PM
Ok, so there's this nifty set on the adriafil site (bottom right corner, it's called 'Sunny') with these little laddered motifs in the pattern.  

The pattern is in English, but the key to the chart is in (I'm guessing) highly abbreviated Italian.  There are 4 special symbols (which I've replaced with 'o') with the following 'explanations'
o = 1 gett.
o = 2 m. ins. a dir.
o = 1 m. lasciata cadere
o = m. ras. dir.

Can anyone translate?
Does anyone know how to make little patches with controlled ladders (runs) that don't take over the whole sweater?
42  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / snazzy lined messenger bag on: March 31, 2004 06:09:51 PM
This bag is loosely jordy based.  The main pieces (outside and inside) are one piece each, then there are the pockets and the strap.  So a minimal amount of piecing things together.

43  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / how big is British money? on: March 29, 2004 05:53:29 AM
Hey craftsters,
I want to make a wallet for my Scottish cousin, but I know their paper money is crazy big, so I want to make sure it will fit.  Could one of the Brits here maybe measure a 20 pound note for me? (She's 14 so I doubt she'll have anything bigger in her wallet for a while).

I made a couple of little purses from jordy's famous tutorial for a wedding I'm going to be in.  I made the handles from strings of beads and attached them by threading them through small buttonholes (with a large, flat bead on the inside) the bridesmaids' dresses are blue with white satin trim, so I made all the purses out of white satin, with a blue lining and blue beads for the maids' purses.

Take 1 knitted, felted poppy that is really too big to be worn as a pin, add a couple of circles of black taffeta, a loop of ribbon, some lining fabric and a zipper.  Sew it all up and voila! a purse that's actually kind of cute.

As Buggirl suggested (over in this thread)I've made a bag for travelling with your undies.  It has two zippered compartments - one for clean and one for dirty.  I then embroidered 'wash me' and 'wear me' on the two sides (so you know which is which) and attached shrink plastic pinup girls (like in this thread) as zipper pulls

the wear me zipper pull
47  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hairy red hedgehog! on: March 08, 2004 08:23:10 AM
I got the pattern from this thread:
https://www.craftster.org/yabbse/index.php?board=23;action=display;threadid=3326 and then altered it for my own devices.  Instead of the pattern for the back, I  used Patons Allure yarn, and I just did reverse stockinette.  As you can tell, the yarn I used for the body (some chenille I had laying around) wasn't quite thick enough, so I lined it with tshirt scraps before stuffing.  Anyway, I made it for my cousin, because every girl deserves a hairy red hedgehog!

pattern from http://www.magknits.com


It came out really big - maybe 6" across.  I think next time I'll try making it smaller  But it is really cool looking  - I just need to figure out a way to use it.

50  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / my "roll your own needlecases" on: March 08, 2004 08:14:53 AM
I made a pair of the "roll your own needlecases" featuring fabric from Ikea.  One for my mom, and one for me.  I also added an extra layer, so that it can store twice as many needles.
