1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Startitis! on: June 03, 2005 04:54:16 AM
Lately, I've been really restless while knitting.  My solution, apparently, is to just keep starting new projects.
Right now, I've got:
I Do (half done)
Bad Penny (mostly done, but need to frog back to armpits)
Cable Shrug from the Holiday 04 VK (I thought I would like it, but so far, it's just ...eh)
Trellis (upsized for me)
Seed Stitch Jacket from Winter VK (seed stitch is really boring!)
Sitcom Chic for my mom (also boring)
Felted Furry Foot Warmers from SNBN
Candy Stripers laptop bag from SNBN

AND I'm still considering some other projects!  When will it end?!

How about the rest of you?  Do you have many WIPs?  How do you deal?

Edited to add:  I'm thinking about casting on for the lace leaf pullover in the current IK today.  Somebody stop me!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn Weight? on: March 08, 2005 01:53:50 PM
So, I've been seeing yarns listed like this a lot (mostly on ebay).  They will say something like 3/11 weight.  I'm finally curious enough to ask what these designations mean.  Anyone know?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Wow! I knit THAT? on: February 14, 2005 01:15:49 PM
So usually I am very matter of fact about my completed objects.  I will accept compiments with a sort of "Aw shucks. 'Twerent nothin'"  attitude.  But today as I was leaving my last class, I got ready to put on my scarf (Irish Hiking Scarf) and for some reason, I suddenly saw it in a whole new light. 
I was VERY impressed with myself Smiley
So, has this ever happened to anyone else?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Mother's Day Fuzzy Feet on: February 12, 2005 09:27:03 AM
I'll be starting my first pair of Fuzzy Feet for myself next week.  While thinking about how comfy I hope they'll be, I had an idea for Mother's Day gifts.  I'll try to make Fuzzy Feet for my maternal grandmother, all my aunts on my mother's side, and my older cousin who has two kids.  This will be A LOT of Fuzzy Feet (10 pairs!!).
I plan to use Lamb's Pride Bulky that I already have for my Fuzzy Feet.  I probably will only have enough for one other pair, though, when I finish mine. 

My question is, what kinds of wool have ya'll used for successful Fuzzy Feet?  LP Bulky? LP Worsted? Lopi?
How much wool did it take you for one pair?  I will probably have to make the majority of mine pretty big, because  most of the women in my family (except the ones that married in) have big feet (US Women's size 10-12).

I would like to keep cost as low as possible, so if anyone has any tips for cheap feltable wool, I'm all ears!


ETA:  I'm also ordering the Fiber Trends felted clog pattern, so if anyone knows if this uses up less yarn or is easier to make, please chime in!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn rec please on: November 09, 2004 01:33:28 PM
I'm not exactly new to these boards, but this is my first post.  I want to make the hug shrug from magknits.  The cashmere yarn used in the pattern is a little too rich for my tastes (US $15 per skein!).  I'm looking for a cheaper alternative (around $25-30 for 250 yds.) that feels soft.  I was looking at Lopi yarn, but just from pics, it looks pretty rough.  Any help is appreciated. 

P.S.  I love these boards.  Looking at everyone's finished projects is so inspiring!
