1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Call for pattern submissions on: October 25, 2005 04:36:38 PM
Hi all, I am switching my business name, and I decided to use my woolgathered.com site as a space for a(nother) free pattern magazine. I'm looking for pattern submissions for knitting as well as crochet, and also articles about the crafts. 

Please submit your original idea to [email protected] by November 8th. I can't pay anyone yet or give out free yarn for the patterns *yet*, but hopefully in the future I wll be able to. The first edition is slated to go live sometime in mid-January, so projects would need to be finished by the middle of December. I'll be sending out more details to submitters after Nov. 8th.

Please visit my blog for a little more info: http://woolgathered.typepad.com or email me with any questions.

ps-- spread the word, pretty please!!!!! I know you Craftster people will do me proud and submit awesome things.

Where did you find the pattern?
I think it was in the Spring IK or the Spring Vogue- I can't remember which. It's a Debbie Bliss pattern, though.

Let's see- I don't think I posted this here when I finished it in May! I made the Fiery Bolero from some mohair that I got from MDS+W (from a vendor called Mohair Motion). I like it, but I don't like how big the sleeves are. Also, I love the color, but honestly, I can't find anything I like to wear with it! I was thinking of getting some brown tweed pants and see how that might look.

Has anyone tried to knit this in the round yet?  Damnit, I'm 75% done with my kyoto and finished a few other things as well...but this blasted hat still has my mind going wonky. Huh Tongue

My pattern is in the round.

Love the hat and yarn- but I have to wonder what the thought process was when designing that yarn!

If you like bigger yarns, get a wheel with a large bobbin capacity. But honestly, you'll only know what you like until you try a few out.

You should really talk to a vet- giving your pet something that's meant for humans could seriously make it ill or kill it.

You and your partner have a new baby (the machine, I mean!!!), eh? Very awesome! I am totaly JEALOUS of your find-- have a lot of fun with it!!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sew and then block or block and then sew? Any Difference? on: June 18, 2005 05:52:05 PM
Well, if you block, then sew, you run the risk of blocking things at slightly different sizes, and even if you line things up, your garment could pucker. I would sew, then block-- I've personally never had a problem with mis-shapen garments doing it that way.

Its going to look huge, don't worry. It does wrap around. It won't look right until you put it together. Stick with it! once you are done the arms (and start the fronts) its smooth sailing!! Oh, and USE a lifeline for your lace, its a pain to keep ripping out.

Good tip about the lifelines! And thanks for answering my question about it wrapping around- I was getting worried before I saw your post!
