11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fabric Knits? on: January 11, 2009 05:10:39 PM
I got a whole bunch of fabric from my friend, and since I'm hopeless at sewing, I thought I would cut it into strips and knit with it. So far all I've made is dishcloths, and I was wondering what else I could knit with fabric?

There was a post here somewhere about making ribbon wrapped bracelets with using a pringles container, some batting, hot glue and ribbon. Theyre really fun to make.

Thanks y'all.
I finally figured out that the reason I kept losing my little squares was because they were so darn small! After switching to bigger needles and putting the finished squares into a bag the moment they were finished, I stopped losing them!
Thanks so much, and I think I might use the scarf Idea for another afghan.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Afghan Help? on: December 31, 2008 03:28:08 PM
For christmas, my Gramma gave me a $30 Michaels gift card. The next day, I went to michaels and bought a bunch of yarn and paint and such. I bought a big ball of Bernats Afghan yarn in Coffee(or maybe it was chocolate,all I remember is that its a dark brown.). The big ball is about 700 yards. The smaller balls I bought are about 150-300 yards each. I wanted to make an afghan, but since I've never done this before, I was wondering if I could get some help.

First, I started knitting little squares with the intent of sewing them together in the end. But then I realized I would lose squares and not be able to finish it.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I could do this? I really really want to make an afghan.


15  KNITTING / Knitalongs / What Do You Call A Fish With No Eyes? -along on: December 25, 2008 10:22:15 PM
So I was sitting around looking at random blog posts, and I found this:
Finally, a use for my left over christmas yarn!
I am planning on making a full-sized blanket from these fishies, and anyone is free to join.
Although it may take a while, it looks like it would be very rewarding.
Im just casting on for my first fishie right now.

Keep all your scraps!They can work as stuffing when you just dont have time to go out and buy it. Or you can use them as a applique.
I keep all my scaps in a see through duffel bag my little sister gave me(she got a blanket set in it).
If your machine has only one setting...buy another machine to sew other stitches on. Especially if the first machine is filled with family history.

17  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / I need some help with my sewing machine. Its really old. on: December 13, 2008 06:15:17 PM
This sewing machine was bought by my grandmother at garage sale. It was then given to my mother, who has now given it to me. My mom never used it, so when I got it, it had a full bobbin. Now the bobbin has run out, and I cannot figure out how to replace it.
My camera isnt working, but I found a picture of it here.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Little knit purses might be cute for the younger children.
No one in my family wears cowls, though.
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Christmas Present Help!!! on: December 13, 2008 02:51:06 PM
I need some help with Christmas presents! With less than two weeks till Christmas, I've hit a knitting block, and haven't made any presents.
I don't want to do scarves and hats, but i cant think of anything else.
I'm experienced and I knit quick so any help would be appreciated.

This does sound like fun! All my friends delight in giving me old fabric, so now I have a huge stash. Anything to make it smaller would me me(and the rest of my family) incredibly happy!
