those are beautiful!  After a month of knitting, all that I had done was a couple of garter-stitch scarves.   Grin  You should be proud!

there's a Goodwill on Mass Ave in Central Square as well.  It's next to Phoenix Landing.

There is a HUGE Goodwill on Harrison Ave, on the Boston/Roxbury line.  I don't know the exact address, but it's right off Melnea Cass Blvd.  I have no idea how to get there via public transportation.  It's really big, but not as well-organized as most Goodwills are.

If you have a car, there is a decent Saver's in West Roxbury, on VFW Parkway, but I think you can only get there via car.

Oh! and Centre Street in Jamaica Plain (easy to get to via the 39 bus or Orange Line -- Green Street stop) has a Boomerangs (run by the AIDS Action Committee, I think), and nearby South Street has a men's clothing thrift/vintage store called Gumshoe.

If I think of any more I'll let you know.  I've been a thrift store rat since the 80s and have seen many of them come and go.

I love this thread!  Grin

We have a ball python, Sunny (we also found out she is a she after about 10 years!), and we've joked about me knitting a leg warmer to use as a sweater for her.  She might like it; she tends to crawl into dark warm spaces.  It just can't be fun fur, she freaks out if she touches hair.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lace Camisole from Vintage Knits (Sarah Dallas) on: June 28, 2007 01:18:40 PM
I found a bunch of blogs where the people either (1) made it and frogged it (there is a poster on Craftster who recently re-used the yarn for a gorgeous t-shirt sweater of her own design) or (2) don't seem to have ever posted a finished object.

People who finished it mostly complained that it was waaay too big and boxy.  I'm making the medium, which would usually fit me (36-inch bust, 28-30 inch waist), but not sure now.  As I said, I'm off work all next week so I'll have time to finish or frog!

Thank you for everyone's input!

Thanks. . . it may have been a user error if other people haven't found errors.  I was watching zombie movies while knitting and maybe got distracted.  Grin

I'm going to try to finish it over the next week, and will post results when I do!  I'll probably wing it.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lace Camisole from Vintage Knits (Sarah Dallas) on: June 26, 2007 06:23:01 AM
I'm having trouble finishing this, and even though I'm almost done, I'm close to frogging it.

I finished the right side of the front, where it goes up to a triangle to cover the bust. Following the pattern for the left side, the triangle ends up much bigger and wider than the right side. I'm not lopsided (well, not noticably), and I don't want my camisole to be!!!

I heard a rumor that this book (it's the Sarah Dallas one) is full of errors, and there is no errata anywhere. I'm thinking of scrapping the pattern instructions and just going with my own instincts to work up the left side so it will match. I've already tinked back twice. I think I did the right side correctly, because it looks right.

So, has anyone made this and did you find errors in the pattern?  What was your fix?

That looks awesome!  Your color choices are amazing, and it must be great to wear with this cold spell we're having (I haven't been warm since I got out of bed this a.m.)

Thank you!  I got all of these supplies at A.C. Moore, including the Victorian Rose molds!  They really cried out "pick me!" to me, because they are so classically pretty.

The frog and turtle molds cried out to me because, well, they're frogs and turtles! Grin

I may be giving a couple of them to a friend today.  They do make great gifts!

Here's my first attempt:

I made the Victorian Rose soaps and my husband made the frog and turtle soaps.  I did layered colors on mine (lilac and peach) and he used lime green on his.

I think I'm going to like doing this!  Grin
