1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Can someone help me identify this type of bracelet? on: December 11, 2010 02:55:06 PM
I'm interested in learning how to make these, but have no idea what they're called to even begin looking for tutorials.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I desperately need your help!!!! on: June 25, 2008 12:31:32 PM
Tried to get help on ravelry, but my thread is always pushed off the board before it gets many reads.
I'm currently working on my first cardigan (Hexacomb cardigan) having only previously finished socks and 1 dishcloth, so I don't have all that much experience.
I'm at the point where I have to divide for the fronts and back, it tells me to work the stitches for the right front in pattern, bind off 8, work back stitches in pattern, bind off 8 again, then work for the left front, & place stitches for right and back on seperate holders.
Now, I've only had to bind off once...ever. That was even months ago. I found instructions for the basic knit bind off, and it seems as if I do that, when I go to knit the back, since the yarn will still be hanging from my working needle, I'll connect the pieces together when they should be seperate. Do I cut the yarn after the bind offs? What bind off should I use?
This isn't clicking in my head, for some reason. I've been breezing through everything else, but this whole cardigan thing is confusing.
Someone please enlighten me! I would be so ridiculously grateful.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I don't know where I started my sock! on: March 20, 2008 03:53:15 PM
Okay, after successfully completing a dishcloth and a cabled scarf, I decided to move onto a pair of socks. I had a real hard time with the first one, had to cast on several times and rip out not even a full round later. When I finally got the hang of it, I was so excited that I forgot to place a marker when I joined in the round. I have no idea where I started! I used a long tail cast on, so that string is still dangling, but I don't know where the join is in relation to it. Can someone help?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / New knitter needs help with selvages. on: January 22, 2008 09:55:53 AM
I very recently picked up knitting.
I made my first FO last week, a dishcloth in plain stockinette stitch with a garter stitch border, mainly just for practice. I noticed on my dishcloth that my edges were "knobby" or "knotty" looking, not nice and neat and almost braid-like that I've seen on other projects. But hey, it was a practice dish cloth so I didn't care.
For my second project I wanted something a bit more difficult So I went with Kinsey's Cable Scarf.
I started the cable and everything was going very well..except my edges. This time I have one decent one and the other one looks as though it got caught in the garbage disposal. How can I fix this? I'm going to frog it and start over once I know what I'm doing wrong.

^^Decent Edge

^^Crap Edge

^^Whole thing.
Sorry about the terrible quality, I only have a webcam on hand at the moment.
I would really appreciate any advise anyone has to offer.
5  UNITED STATES / New Jersey / Anyone near cumberland county/ south jersey? on: January 04, 2008 04:47:58 PM
Lately I've found myself locked in my room, alone, doing crafty things because my friends just don't "get it".
I would LOVE to have someone close by who shares the same interests as me, so I wouldn't have to craft alone, and all my trips to yarn shops and fabric stores wouldn't have to be made solo.
If no one is available in the area, I would always settle for a crafty pen pal or something like that.
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / thread jamming. please help! on: December 25, 2007 12:13:31 AM
I just purchased my own sewing machine this afternoon. It's a Shark #7133. It was sewing fine for quite a while, but now my thread is consistantly jamming. It has gotten to the point where it won't sew at all, it just jams.
I pulled the bobbin out and rethreaded the needle and everything. It all seemed perfectly normal to me. Still, all it's doing is immediately jamming. I have no idea what to do.  Sad
