1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Two Kureyon Bags (now with tutorial on page 4)! on: September 11, 2007 07:00:38 PM
I am a fan of kureyon yet I have never knit with it. I have three skeins to make wrist-warmers from SnB nation. I am afraid to start and mess up my project with this amazing yarn. But if I ever get a job, i'm buying kureyon and knitting EVERYTHING THAT CAN BE KNIT IN KUREYON!
Ditto! I love Kureyon but have never had the opportunity to buy it (poor college student, boo Tongue) but once I can, everything that can be knit will probably be knit with Kureyon. Mmm.
2  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Zimmerman KAL?? on: August 26, 2007 09:12:28 PM
I got the pattern for the BSJ in the mail yesterday (thanks, Loop!) and plan to start it soon. A friend of mine's friend just had a baby girl and was wondering if I could knit her a blanket, but I thought maybe clothes would be simpler (not to mention more fun!)

Not sure about the yarn I'm going to use, though.

I have, and it's actually really easy.  All you have to do is open up the seam so you can see the yarn used to crochet it together.  Just snip the first line on one end of the crochet seam, and then yank at one of the freed yarn ends.  The seam should "unzip" all the way.  It might actually take a couple of snips to get it to start "unzipping" but it'll usually happen if it is crocheted together.  Then all you have to do is unravel the pieces. 

Here's a really good tutorial that helped me figure out how to unseam a sweater:

Hope this helps.
I have a cotton sweater with a "good seam" but it's been a bitch to unravel, and I've pretty much given up on it Sad

Here in GA there isn't too much to choose from at the Goodwill when it comes to sweaters.

Ooh, this would be a great gift for my friends who just got married. I told them it may take a while to get your present (a knit blanket) but I may do this on the side as well Smiley

I like the vibrant colours of that!  And good job making it really "pop" in the photo.  Looks great!

Thank you! I am so proud of it!

I finished a while ago, but just now got a picture of my capelet Smiley My next one will be made with Bernat Softee Chunky in a dark, navy blue.


There are two detail photos and a progress photo here

I've been looking for a shrug/sweater like this for a while. Do you plan on writing out the pattern?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitted wedding gifts? on: April 30, 2007 08:43:40 PM
I made my friend's wedding shawl - it's the Clementine Shawlette from the most recent Interweave.  I made it with Blue Sky Alpaca's Alpaca and Silk in Ecru - that stuff is SOOO soft, and the pattern was relatively fast and easy. I hope she likes it.  I'll have to get a picture of it to post.
Ooh, I have that issue! But I'm not sure if the shawlette is really her style. Maybe if I make it in her favorite colors...

have you tried Knitting Pattern Central? they have a whole listing of wedding items....


a lot of people give lingerie as wedding gifts... a knitted thong for her, willy warmer for him...  Grin Cheesy

coffee cup cozies might be appreciated if they're coffee drinkers.

and i've seen a pattern for a large mitten that's made so they can hold hands... it was in the winter issue of knit.1 not sure if you can find it online.

and coasters are easy to make and a lot of people use and like them.
Actually their list isn't very long at all, only 6 things. Including a wedding dress, wow o.o

I have that knit.1 issue..hmm. Maybe, but I live in Georgia and they wouldn't really ever have a need for it. I owe her fiance a pair of fingerless gloves, so maybe I will make them matching pairs Cheesy

lol willy warmer? Is that like a mitten with no thumb? XD Well we are throwing her a bachelorette party, and I have that issue of IWK with the thong pattern. Hmm, decisions decisions. Thanks for the suggestions!

How about a throw blanket?  It would be a lot of work though... the 12th isn't that far off.

LOL @ the idea of a willy cozy  Cheesy
What if I make the throw with big needles? I've always wanted to try like, size 50 needles Tongue They both like red and black, so there we go! I will definitely think about that, thanks!
