1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitted flames hat pattern? on: August 06, 2006 09:25:35 PM
Can anyone suggest a pattern for a knitted hat with flames coming up from the brim? I've searched around craftster and the net but haven't found what I'm looking for....Thanks in advance!
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Zip bag from recycled argyle sweater on: February 23, 2006 09:32:16 PM
I started sewing little bags last year.  I made this one out of a sweater I had bought for myself awhile ago...I washed it and it shrunk a little too much. I really need to take better care of my clothes...but it made a really cute zip bag.

I'm going to try to find some more sweaters to recycle at thrift stores.
3  California / California: North / New Craft Meetup Group in Oakland, CA on: February 20, 2006 10:21:30 PM
Hi gals and guys, I'm starting a meetup.com craft group for the Oakland area!  We're planning on meeting most Sundays and an occasional weeknight.   Please join the group if you're interested.

First meeting will be Sunday Mar. 5th.  Location TBD depending on how many people want to come, I'd like to try to do Julie's Coffee and Tea Garden in Alameda if the aren't already having a group that day and are okay with us hanging out for a few hours.  I went there with two ladies last weekend and we had a great time.


All crafts and crafters are welcome!

If you have any questions feel free to PM me

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pattern Question - cables on: December 10, 2005 02:09:42 PM
Okay, I have knit cables before and wasn't an issue but this pattern is throwing me off a little.

"Place cable row every 6 or 8 rows (instead of working row 1) depending on if you want a tight cable or a looser cable."

So do I knit 6 rows (row 1, row 2, 1, 2, 1, 2) andTHEN cable?  Then start again at row 1 or do I go to row 2?  Or do I knit 5 rows (ending on row 1 and then cable and then start back at one again?  I think the "instead of row 1" is what's throwing me off.  Help?

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How to tell if the last row was knit or purl stich? on: October 10, 2005 10:01:57 PM
I checked the FAQ and searched the board, so I apologize if this was asked before.

I'm working on a scarf and knitting 3 rows and purling 3 rows.. basic stuff.  If I lose track of what the last row was, what's the easiest way to figure it out?

I saw an illustration once in a book that showed the stich having either a "noose" of yarn or a "necklace" of yarn but I can't remember which is which, and is that when you are looking at the row from the side as you start working the next row?

8  California / California: North / East Bay SNB Groups? on: August 21, 2005 11:15:46 AM
Hi there, I know of 3 Oakland knitting groups, an Alameda and Berkeley one...

Is anyone a member of a SNB in this area that they can recommend?  I'd like to choose one that has a good size group of people meeting on a regular basis and is welcoming of new people.
