 So cute -- I LOVE the octopus design. The heart-and-skull design is great too.

 Very nice. They look very soft Smiley I especially like the white one.

 I'm obsessively organized, yet I just can't seem to get my knitting stuff organized. Bits of yarn everywhere, not to mention the projects themselves. Smiley Hopefully soon I'll be able to get a plastic tub to store the stuff in.

 Worsted or sport weight is probably the easiest to work with. As for quality.. most people prefer yarns with wool blends. I'm not fond of wool at all, though. Wink If you want something cheap, Red Heart will do the job.

 Very pretty! I love the colours.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: obnoxiously simple fingerless gloves on: November 22, 2004 08:51:59 AM
I had one (sort of stupid) question. When you say to sew them up the sides, do you mean with an actual needle and thread? Or with the yarn?

 Sort of. There's a very handy thing called a tapestry needle that has a wide eye used for sewing-like activity in knitting. (Think attaching parts of sweaters together.) Use whatever yarn you used in the project to sew up the sides with the tapestry needle.

 Anyway.. I wish I had my digital camera. I made three pairs of fingerless gloves and they turned out wonderfully! I was experimenting and discovered that using US 9 10" circulars achieves almost the same effect as the size 7 straights. I knit in stockinette for 28 rows and bound off, sewed it up and they fit perfectly. Smiley

You said you didn't want seams in front, though, right?  Most ponchos knit that way are worn with the points down in front and back, putting the seams directly in front and back.  However, it doesn't have to be that way.

 Ach, I should have been more clear -- what I really despise is those ponchos that have some gaudy tie, like a ribbon, on the front. (Although that would be more of a capelet, wouldn't it? I'm dumb.) I like the pointed front but the tied-at-the-side is my preferred style.

  The poncho you knit is adorable! The Brunswick one looks good, too. Thanks a lot for posting those instructions. Smiley

 Thanks for the drawings -- it took me a second but it makes a lot of sense Smiley I'll try it out soon once I go yarn shopping.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How hard is it to knit or crochet? on: November 20, 2004 01:03:10 AM
 I haven't crocheted (have some hooks.. need to learn), but knitting is easy. I recommend finding someone who knows how to help you, along with the help of a book. Going by a book is good, but seeing the stitches done in real life is easier than illustrations. Good luck!
