Sorry it took me so long, I was having issues with my computer. This is the hoop I received from mthrasher138. I told her I loved brewing a pot of tea and curling up in my chair. I got married in October so she put the little heart in the tree for that. I love it!

Thank you so much!

This is the hoop I sent mthrasher138. I saw she had Calvin and Hobbes pinned and found this cartoon. I tried to keep it looking as close to the comic as I could. It is colored in with colored pencils and then back stitched for the outlines.

So I received my awesome hoop from Daphadilly Art today. Unfortunately after all the issues in the mailing process the hoop on the outside got broke but have no fear I will just replace it.

I love how she took the bad wolf/rose cross over and made it awesome!  And the silence hash marks on the outside of the package is awesome!!!!!!  Thank you so much!!!!!!!  I am working on yours now and hope to send it out early next week!

So I received my hoop today from RetroGypsy! I had a rough day at work, and coming home to this brightened my day!

She made me a hoop based on my wedding!! Yay!! I am a huge rubber duckie fan, and the wedding had rd cake toppers, and blues and yellows throughout. She also sent me a little picture frame ornament, for our first married Christmas! Smiley Thank you!

RetroGypsy if you have a clearer picture of the hoop please feel free to post it! It is beautiful work, and I love that you made little rubber duckies!!

Here is what my cake looked like Smiley

Thank you so much RetroGypsy!!  Grin

8  Sewn knitting needle roll! in CHALLENGE 78 ENTRIES by twisted5whispers on: September 10, 2012 12:18:17 PM
First challenge entry!

I recently bought a set of bamboo dpns and straights and needed a place to store them all. I picked out some precut fabric from walmart and went to work! I have 18 pairs of straights so I needed at least that many pockets wide. I laid all my needles out over the different fabrics and decided 3 rows would be the best way to go. I first measured around all the sets of dpns thinking they were bigger and needed more room and the other pairs would fit either way... I didn't have enough room for the 18 sets of straights. So I measured out 18 spots that where about 1.2 inches wide. Success!

It took a bit more fiddling to find out the right heights for the 3 rows, and I opted for the 3rd row to be slanted in case I need to fit some smaller needles back there. I left enough fabric on the top so that I could have a flap that folded over to keep any stray needles from falling out.

I got a lot of inspiration from looking at pictures on google and such, but didn't follow anyone particular.

It's not perfect, my seams could be straighter but I love it. I'm so glad I chose the colors I did! They make me happy!

Here is a close up of it..

And here is what it looks like rolled up! It is huge, I feel like I'm holding a yoga mat or something haha I love the red on the outside!

9  Made myself a knitting needle roll! in Knitting: Completed Projects by twisted5whispers on: September 10, 2012 09:34:11 AM
I'm not sure if this goes here but it has to do with knitting... Feel free to move if neeeded!

I recently got myself a set of bamboo dpns and a set of bamboo knitting needles. I decided I needed a better way to organize them other than just in a drawer where they just look messy. I bought a package of precut material from the store and went to town!

I had a hard time figuring out how wide to make the pockets. Originally I had different marks for each of the three pockets then realized that wouldn't work, so I use the biggest needles I had for a guide and made each spot about 1.2 inches wide. I love how it turned out!

Here is what it looks like rolled up...

It is huge. But it holds all of my knitting needles.. (so far!) There are 19 pockets for each row. It holds my dpns, and straights and there are pockets for my circular needles! Now I don't have to dig to find the right needles for anything!  Grin

C&C welcome!

10  Re: How do I figure out how much yarn I need for a wedding blanket? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by twisted5whispers on: August 29, 2012 11:23:37 PM
Thank you. I figured out something like 16 balls of yarn or so. To be save I went to the store and bought more yarn so I have 2 balls of the mc and another of the cc. And I have been knitting up a storm tonight. My next question is.... how many final rows will this square have? I cast on 90 stitches, so 45 per side. and I am decreasing 2 times every other row. I did some wonky math and figured out I would have 45 rows total, but I think I messed up. I wanted 5 color changes so I made each color 9, well actually 10 rows. I am to what is suppose to be the last row and it does NOT look like it will only be 10 rows.

This is what I have so far...

I'm kind of bummed. I thought I did all my calculations right. And I'm not sure if I should just keep knitting the 10 rows like I am or maybe make the last chunk all the red color and then as long as I make all the squares the same who cares? OR If I should take it out and recalculate how many rows so I can have 5 color changes?

C&C are VERY welcome!!
