1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Changing colours - what am I doing wrong? on: October 02, 2005 01:56:49 AM
Bearing in mind that I am a complete beginner and even so haven't picked up needles in years, I decided to make a striped scarf yesterday, but I'm doing something wrong and I'm not sure what.

When I change the colours, the first stitch of the last row of the previous colour is coming up into the first row of the new colour. I'm changing the yarn at the other side, though.

I'm not sure if any of that made sense. Here's a photo:

Also, I'm using a 60% cotton, 40% acrylic. Do I need to block it?

3  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Seven Deadly Sins Swap POSTPONED on: September 28, 2005 05:36:52 AM
Swap name: Seven Deadly Sins
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: jadey_mcshadey
Sign-up date range: 28 Sep - 19 Oct, 2005
Date to send item by: 18 Nov, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? no

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:

Let's celebrate the Seven Deadly Sins! We will each be crafting 7 items for this swap, one for each sin, six little baby crafts and one bigger for your partner's favourite sin.

The idea is to make six small (effort, not size) and one medium crafts, which may mean six bookmarks and one sketchbook or six screenprinted patches and one screenprinted tshirt.


Please be aware of another rule that I have added for this swap. Do not send me your information without commenting in this tread. I don't care if you comment with one word or a pirate joke or your favourite recipe, it just makes it easier for me to contact you and check on your details.

The five rules are vital if you want to be in this swap. I won't be allowing anyone who doesn't meet these conditions to join the swap.

I'm leaning towards one item for each sin, but DEFINITELY nothing too time consuming, maybe one medium effort item and six small items?

Signups starting tomorrow and running for three weeks?

A doona is a quilt stuffed with feathers that has an interchangable cover, they call them duvets in the UK.

I'm excited about Halloween! People around here just don't get it, but I didn't have the time or energy to join the big swap.

My mum still uses the line that 'your appearance reflects on me, you know, people will think I didn't teach you how to dress yourself' but it's ok, because my brother has dreads, so I'll always be the good, well groomed child.

Ok, next month will definitely be halloween, I was thinking that it might be easiest to just combine bags and accessories and make dresses last.

Also, hoodies are a great idea for outerwear. I'm so in love with hoodies, but sweatshirts make me look ginormous, so I have to make my own out of thinner fabric. I'm seriously impressed by 8 shirts, spitbubbleluv, for some reason, I didn't even think of screenprinting.

This craftalong is going to keep me very busy over the months.

That's awesome, because I think I know what I would make you (depending, d'accord, on your questionaire answers!

I love it. I'd probably try papier mache. Definitely go with the velcro, though.
