1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with a sweater? on: October 30, 2008 06:16:51 PM
I'm sure this has been asked a dozen times, buuutt...

I'm fairly new at knitting, I just taught myself recently after years of crocheting.  Anyway, I came apon a pair of circular needles in my mother's stash and decided to experiment. I now have a really nice looking tube that would fit me perfectly as a sweater, but I have no idea how to go about shaping the neck and making sleeves  Huh

I've tried looking at other sweater patterns to get an idea of what to do, but I just get all baffled and frustrated. I dont want to do anything extravagant with it, just like....maybe a v-neck or a scoop neck? I'd love to put on a hood, too, but I know thats a little out of my league Cheesy

Any help at all would be so so so sooo appreciated!
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Brick of beeswax? on: July 29, 2008 08:44:35 PM
I found a 1lb brick of white beeswax lying around...I would hate to throw it away.

I know you can make lip balms and candles, but are there any other good uses for it?

thanks!  Cheesy

...literally. But I'm just so darn proud of it! Of course pictures dont do it justice, but the whole thing is a basketweave and it just has shell edging. I didn't use a pattern, just kept on going till I was happy with it.

The center part is like an off-white, ivory color aaand I ran out of yarn, so I ended up using that light green/tealish color to do the rest (those Caron One Pounders). I really like the way it ended up, though. There's a row of dark green around the whole thing, too...it doesn't really look green in the pictures. Also, the border looks bigger on one side than it is on the other, but they really are the same size.....and it's a nice rectangle, not some weirdo shape like it looks. I just didn't have enough floor space to lay it out properly x.x

It isn't that big, about 3.5 by 5 feet, but it's large enough to wrap around me when I watch tv! And after washing, it has a really great drape to it.

Close up of the stitch and edging.

This is my first post (long time stalker)...actually I used to have an account, but cant remember my username/pass Embarrassed
