11  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Umbilical cord hat on: December 23, 2005 06:11:21 AM
It's finished! And on a baby's head!! The yarn is Yarn Bee Baby Chenielle. Very inexpensive and good for a prototype.

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Wool Head For Babies? on: December 18, 2005 05:08:50 PM
So I'm looking at the bag full of yarn from my last LYS shopping spree, and I realize that the charming hot pink Cascade I bought with the intention of making baby hats might not be the best thing for a baby.

Is it true that many babies have allergies to wool? Have any of you made wool hats for baby heads? Share any thoughts you have.

Gee, it may mean that I will finally have to knit for myself! Roll Eyes

Hooray for this hat! I am working on my first, and it's my first time to knit in the round. I am cautiously optimistic--it's going well so far! I am working in a variagated Baby Chenielle--pretty cute so far.

Now, here's the odd question of the day: when he saw me working on this hat, my 57 year old dad asked if I could make him one. Has anyone tried this for adults? Were they mocked openly for wearing it? How would you change the decreases?

Just thinking...

So I finally get around to seeing Sideways with my friend from knitting class. Great film, loved it.

There is a climactic scene where a totally nude man appears...except he's not totally nude.

As the scene ends, I lean over to my friend and say, "Isn't that the hat pattern we got in class?"

Wow. Look what I have become.

Well, Boo, truth be told there is this really cool skirt... Wink

I do want to do this stuff, though. It seems silly to throw yarn at all the world's problems, but it's a start.

I agree with baast, what I am hoping that this hobby will do for me (after all the damn holiday gifts are done Sad ) is to give me a stash of stuff that will cheer people up and perhaps help out.

I teach HS and I want to have booties to give my pregnant girls
I want to make hats for preemie babies
I want to make scarves quickly enough to always have an easy gift that is meaningful

I think I told the story on this thread of how many great conversations I have had with older women in craft stores, they are so happy to see younger women (and men!) take up these crafts. Face it, if we didn't do this stuff, it would die off. My mother speaks constantly of how she wishes my great grandmother had taught her tatting before her eyes went (Grandmother's, not mom's).

The things we make are heirlooms (ok, maybe not the phallus-es or vibrator cozies, but you have to have fun too! Wink ) and should be enjoyed as such.

There. I just sounded like my mom except I said "damn" "phallus" and "vibrator".

My favorite comeback to "You have too much time on your hands" is "No, I just manage it better".

Doesn't make me friends, but it sure does satisfy!

Although it looks like I am having a talk with myself here, I will continue my thoughts from my last post in hopes that someone is reading.

I have visited Gourmet Yarn Co. a couple of times, they are very helpful, they have a nice selection, and best of all they have a ball winder!

I still visit Carol's often as well. She is truly one of the nicest people! Her desire is to have different things from Gourmet Yarn, the market is big enough in her mind (it bears mentioning that last time I was in GYC, the woman tried to trash talk Carol while Carol was nothing but kind about GYC.)

Are there other places? Does anyone read these threads? Hellloooooooo?Huh

How cute! I saw this pattern to knit but never to crochet. They would be adorable out of a light cotton for spring!

You know the next question, don't you?

Got a pattern? Wink

I teach HS and am working on my Christmas projects at school. I have gotten to where I can work while I help the kids. The other day a kid saw me knitting (I also crochet) and remarked to my 30-something, single, knitting, school teacher self and said, "Please, just don't get a cat."

However, when I am out and about wrapped in my handmade scarfy goodness, I get compliments all the time! I can't go to Michael's without a conversation with an elderly woman thrilled to see me doing needlework!

The fun thing is I have convinced several teacher friends at my school to take classes with me!

Yarn IS the new black, friends!
