1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy - Don't Panic! on: June 02, 2010 12:57:33 PM
I made it up entirely as I went along, which, in hindsight, was not the best of ideas...it all came together in the end  Grin

And thanks pixieval! Cheesy I'm quite proud of it...
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy - Don't Panic! on: May 31, 2010 04:20:24 PM
This is my entry for the Novel Knits challenge.
I decided to make my very own Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!

The big friendly letters are made of felt and keep the guide closed so it doesn't activate in your pocket Smiley

I hand-embroidered an article title and text on the screen...

And used short rows to give it body
Back view:

It's also kind of squishy Cheesy

Thanks for reading! Smiley

Wow, thanks for ALL your help, guys!
My mum bought me one from B&Q for 25; it lasted at least 5 minutes from taking it out of the box, including the time it took to plug it in and thread it  Angry

I've looked into the other ones though; they seem really good  Smiley

I'm going as truth or dare with a friend Smiley. We're planning on making matching capes,one white with TRUTH in blue or silver applique, and the other black with DARE in red/gold, and carrying boxes full of truth/dare questions, and a big spinner. Not sure what we'll wear under the capes though, or whether there'll be time to do it all...:p

I would think that indefinite button holes can be done any size and shape, so that if you have a really awkward button or placement you can make the hole fit the button. I have no idea about the mirror images though Smiley

I want a small sewing machine that will fit in my room, and I'll be able to take away to university next year - can anyone suggest a good one?

Smiley I can knit ambidextrously, so I don't turn the work when knitting flat, just start at the other end. It completely throws my tension though - knitting onto the left needle comes out wayyyy looser at the moment - so I ended up with a sweater with one sleeve 2 inches longer than the other (I figured out 2 handed-ness about halfway through)

You're probably best off using separate balls so that you don't end up with loads of yarn wasted as you carry it behind.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Simple Fair Isle Charts? on: February 22, 2009 02:00:30 PM
I'm making a pair of Urban Necessity glittens in a really bright emerald green and, 3/4 of the way through the first one, I've decided that it's just a bit too bright for me, so I'm going to give them too a friend and make another pair for myself. I'd quite like to do something interesting with colours - I have 2 different DK wools that I'd like to use, but no idea what sort of pattern to do, although I'd love to try fair isle, especially as it's quite a small project. So - does anybody have any suggestions of simple fair isle patterns, or where I could find them?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / DPN phone cover pattern on: February 05, 2009 02:11:17 PM
I'm very very very nearly finished my first pair of socks, and I got asked to make a phone cover cozy type thing for a friend. I've got my wool - a dark blue-grey mohair/acrylic blend that's only vaguely fluffy. I want to make it vaguely interesting (ie not stocking stitch) but not too difficult - does anyone have any suggestions?
