21  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Fabric Cording / Straps on: May 01, 2005 12:06:15 PM
I have discovered that I have a considerable amount of fabric cord/strap in my possession.  I'm not sure what the correct term for these is -- they look like they could be spaghetti straps for tank tops.  I've got a few different colors, and each bundle of cord/strap is a couple of yards long.  Beyond well, straps for shirts, and perhaps edgings, what could I do with these?
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sparkly Girly Scarf on: April 29, 2005 02:37:51 PM
Yes, this was a photo of the scarf while it was still unfinished, but I have completed it!

Materials: one skein (on discount for four dollars!) of glitterspun in gold, size nine needles.  Finished scarf: 3 1/2 inches wide, almost sixty inches long.

A picture!

Edit: I don't understand why when I try to include the link for the pattern I adapted it from, it comes out very weird and not a link at all.  It's p_faux_lace_scarf_lc.html on www DOT madisonknittersguild  DOT org
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Looking for Patterns for Carpenter Pants on: April 27, 2005 07:09:12 PM
I'm looking for a pattern for carpenter pants.  More specifically, I own a pair of loose-fitting corduroy carpenter pants, and they are now falling apart.  I managed to find some fairly inexpensive material to make my own, but I'm having a tough time finding an appropriate pattern.  The pants are slightly wide-leg, straight cut and sit on my hips.

Does anyone know offhand of a pattern that fits the bill?
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Linen Stitch Scarf on: April 08, 2005 06:23:59 PM
Technically, it's not a completed project, but I was so excited about my results, I felt compelled to post.

I originally purchased some sport-weight yarn in hopes to make a lacy scarf, but then I experimented with the linen stitch.

(Apologies for the quality, it was the best I could muster.  Also, to note: this was knit with needles one size larger than suggested. Yarn: Red Heart Luster Sheen in Autumn.)

The dense stitch complements the thinner yarn quite nicely.  In addition, since every other stitch each row is slipped, you get this really interesting effect with variegated yarn.  (None of the traditional solid striping that tends to happen with plain stockinette stitch.)

* Linen Stitch
Row 1 (RS): K1, *slip 1 with yarn in front, k1; rep from *
Row 2: K1, p1, *slip 1 with yarn in back, p1; rep from *, end k1
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Little Leaf Pattern Frustration on: March 13, 2005 03:18:14 PM
http://members.shaw.ca/siviaharding/leaf.html <--The pattern in question.

Somehow, I can't get this to work.  The pattern calls to cast on 47 stitches, which I did.  But once I come to the leaf pattern itself (as opposed to the 7 starting edging rows) I find myself lacking stitches.

On the second row of the pattern, I'm left with one stitch left, when I have "ssk, k1" left in the pattern.  On the fourth row, I have two stitches left instead of three.

Do you think think that the Row 7 instructions apply to the leaf pattern itself?  (All right side rows, it says to slip one stitch purlwise, knit 2, work the pattern across, and then knit 3.)  I'm sort of perplexed by these directions.

Anyone wiser and more experienced in reading patterns care to assist me?

Much thanks.

This one made out of very many craft sticks, glue, and a candelabra socket from Home Depot.  (Yes, and a bulb!)

Does anyone have any suggestions for books/websites that have instructions for modular/spherical origami?

(Maybe this one? http://www.prospero78.freeserve.co.uk/ori2/sphere.jpg)

How strong is fishing wire? (My current lantern requires something clear and string.)

30  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can Cables "Turn"? on: December 23, 2004 06:14:00 PM
So, I was wondering if anyone knew how to do a cable pattern that "turns".

[ Deleted the ascii art, since it didn't represent what I had in my head as an idea.  See my post a few replies down. ]
