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.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / FO Fiery Bolero on: October 02, 2005 08:08:26 AM
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.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Finished Fiery Bolero (from Summer IK) on: June 01, 2005 04:35:50 AM
Okay, it's not "Fiery", it's "FUZZY AS HELL", haha. I got the yarn at MDSW from http://www.mohairmotion.com - really nice people. They were so cute. Anyway, I made the 35" size because the sizes were really weird, so I don't like how the arms are too big on me, but I can deal with it.

(Please excuse my super tired face!!!! It was 1am when I took this.)

It's from the Summer Interweave Knits, and it took me about a month to finish. I seriously hate picking up stitches (for the ribbed collar and sleeve edgings), and I hate sewing seams, but at least I was patient and took my time with it. Also, mohair like that is DAMN hard to work with while your watching tv, I kept dropping stitches because I thought the yarn was catching, but it was only catching on fuzz sometimes. Oh well. Good thing I know how to pick them up. There were like 12 of them!!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Non-English knitting terms needed on: March 12, 2005 09:38:04 PM
Hi all, I'm curious. I would like to know the general terms for knitting, crochet, yarn, wool, sheep, and needles in languages other than English. I know French has la tricoteuse (sp? It's late!) for knitting, but otherwise I am in the dark.

So, what can you tell me?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Neckwarmer of Looooove on: January 25, 2005 05:23:30 PM
I made up this pattern for a neckwarmer. I call it LOVE BITE, hahahaaaaaaaaa. Anyway:

Please excuse the unblokedness of it and the not-so-cute buttons. FIXED! The lace pattern at the bottom is fishtail lace, which really looks like fishtails!! I have new buttons coming in the mail from http://www.earthenwood.net who makes the BEST ceramic buttons and jewelry and tiles.

ps I changed the picture to show off the new buttons!!!! They are soooo pretty.
6  KNITTING / Knitalongs / EZasPi knit-a-long on: January 03, 2005 09:24:40 AM
Is anyone here doing the Elizabeth Zimmerman Pi shawl knit-a-long? There is a yahoo group called EZasPi that is hosting it, but I wanted to see if any familiar names were also doing it. I am still awaiting my copy of Knitter's Almanac to start it, and I'm DEFINITELY not making it 6' across, and I haven't thought of what yarn to use... I was thinking maybe 3' across so I could put it on my table and maybe make it out of KPPPM. I've never done a real lace project before, and I'm impatient as hell, so that's why I'm reticent to make a gigantic one.

For those of you that have no idea what I'm talking about, the Pi shawl gets it's name from being circular and having it's increases based on Pi. Elizabeth Zimmerman, the knitting master, thought of it and made it famous.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How important is yarn weight? on: November 30, 2004 11:22:56 AM
Most big vendors sell their yarn in 50g skeins/balls/hanks/whatever, but the yardage always varies. When shopping, do you take yarn weight into consideration?  Huh What if you're only buying like 70 yards?
