Ah! Sorry... I didn't know you were in New Zealand. I would play it safe with large. I wear a large (size 12) and have a 36" inch bust and that's what I would do. I thought the sizing in the pattern was a little out of date because it lists a 12 under medium, which maybe sounds like an older sizing convention. Hope this helps--I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

Perfect name for the yarn, too!  Smiley

Crap. I'm rereading it now. The only advice looks to be on the first page, where it says that a small is a 6-8, a medium is a 10-12, and a large is a 14-16... and then nothing later on. I'm sorry there's not more... will you still be able to make it?

That's really awesome: I love the political context to it, too!!

My boss is crazy for knitting with VHS tape. They started doing it at Parsons in the 70's, and he still adores the texture.

Emma told me at our knitting group Saturday that she'd thought about using audio tape, too! I think it would have been easier to knit because it's thinner... maybe as a fringe to video tape scarf? That could be a weird, wearable tribute to the digital age! The tape was a little tight to knit and "crunchy" is the only way I can describe it but it looks kind of glittery and jewel-like when it's done. And it's really easy at least with VHS because it's already on a spool and you keep pulling it out as you need it--no tangles! It's not really soft, so it would probably make a good purse like some of the other entries have done! Maybe I need to start working on the rest of our tapes!!

Thank you, guys! And Tomas is happy to once again be "craft famous!"

Very very cute. What movie(s) did you sacrifice?

I'm not sure which movie it was--I kind of intentionally didn't want to know! It's either "Spice World" or my high school graduation, which my mom regifted to me in the spring!

Here's my submission: VHS tape knit in garter stitch on Size 15 straight needles. I don't think I've seen a project similar to this on Craftster, but if I have, thanks: all of you inspire me a lot!

19  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: How's Your etsy Shop Doing? on: August 19, 2005 02:24:45 PM
I think buying Christmas gifts on Etsy is a very good idea... If I need something (a new shirt for example, Leah!:) I try to buy it on Etsy. I figure the more money we put into this economy, the more we'll all see!
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Doggie Cape on: August 19, 2005 11:33:29 AM
I am pretty much a beginner knitter. Did you start the larger end, then cast off some stitches each side to make the narrower part? Or how did you do that? How did you attach the crocheted ties? Are they chain/slip stitch ties? Or what?

Thanks so much!


Hey, CM! I can't crochet anything at all so I just cast on a big bunch of stitches (as long as I wanted the ties to be) and then bound off right away. This probably isn't as neat as crochet, but it's all I could do!
