21  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dorm Room Ideas... on: July 18, 2004 09:11:00 AM
I'm also about to go to college and I've been thinking about organization dorm room stuff too.  I have a plastic hanging shoe caddy, a big sheet with lots of pockets for stuffing shoes in and I was thinking of either buying or making another one of those to hang in the back of my closet to store random stuff.  I was thinking maybe underwear and socks (as long as the caddy isn't clear!) so they're not taking up drawer space, and so that I can maximize my closet space.  This post is pretty incoherent.  It's hot.  Sorry.  Hey, where are you guys going or where did you go to school?  I'm going to Emerson College in Boston.

Stockinette stitch is knit a row, purl a row.  You just keep repeating that.  Once you get maybe 4-6 rows done, you'll be able to see the distinction between the right (k) side and the wrong (p) side.  The right/knit side will look like a lot of v's and the wrong/purl side will look like a bunch of horizontal bumps.  You can see the purl really well in your third picture.  It looks like every couple of rows, you're just doing the incorrect stitch, like you knit on the purl side or purled on the knit side.  Does this make sense?   Hope it helped.  I can take some pics later if youu need it.

I made the same pattern awhile back with the new cotton Manos, but it's pretty shifty so I haven't worn it out of the house yet.  It's good for cleaning on hot days though  Grin

Does it, um, stay put, in the water?

Dizzer and Kate - You guys totally should make that stuff!  And trust me, it's wicked fun to walk around wearing it.  Everybody smiles at you in supermarkets and things.

KaJ - Probably, but I'm not too sure how to go about it yet.

dahlea - The hat is really basic, with a rolled brim.  We call it the "vanilla bean" hat in my house because it's so plain.  You knit it on circs, and you just knit two rows, purl one row, then knit for 5 inches and then start decreases - k12 k2tog repeat for a row, then k11 k2tog for a row, k10 k2tog, etc.   The ears and face I just make up as I go.

Everybody else - Thanks!!!  Grin

That one is adult, but I'm starting to make some kid and baby ones too.

Thanks guys!  Glad you like it!  Yeah, the ears and facial features are always really hard to place, so I love it when it turns out well.  Other times it can look like a Mr. Potato Head gone wrong or something.

I have expanded my arsenal of cute hats (there's an old thread about the cat hat somewhere on here) to include.... the bunny hat.


The yarn is Lion Brand Thick & Quick charcoal and the acrylic fiber must be reflective, because the color of the hat is actually a lot darker than in the photo.  Also, the ears are very posable.  They can stay stuck straight up, or they can be flopped, whichever.

My sister just sent this link to me, and it looks pretty cool.  Probably already been discussed somewhere on Craftster, but it's neat enoght to deserve another go.  It's a big network of people giving/recieving stuff for free!

Hi!  One of my sisters sent this link to me the other day, and it looks very cool.  It's probably already been discussed on here, but hey, it deserves to be mentioned again.
