821  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Summery Lace Head Scarf/Band on: July 15, 2005 04:27:59 PM
What a great idea - cool lace for a head scarf/band during the hot days!

Looking at your picture of it blocking, I was reminded of a knitted bookmark.
I always look longingly at patterns for them, but I detest the thought of actually using a *knitted* bookmark.  (Because it would be too thick and would damage the book.)

Thank you for giving me the idea of knitting a lace bookmark for my head!

I like the gauntlets but I looove the sweater!

I'd ask you to gift me the sweater, but I only have two of the three characteristics you mention - I am very very wide, with long arms, but NOT flat-chested - so unfortunately it wouldn't fit.

Great work! I've not been brave enough to try a pattern generator yet.

Why not try a second hand store --- look for a sweater or a knitted top and unravel it?

Am not a huge fan of Stevie Ray Vaughan so I have no idea what the significance of the leather hat band is, but ... this IS gorgeous!

And when I saw it I immediately thought of using a cord instead of leather. Not because of any offence but rather because I have cord on hand and no leather strips.

Thank you. Knitty's loss is our gain.

Verrrry cute! They are good to go for all year round.

Don't you just hate it when your feet get cold? ... when the temp is SUPPOSED to be warm. I end up shivering all over.

Great job!

Many thanks for showing the steps to making these!

Now if I could only convince myself that without a fastener of some kind they would stay in place ...
I'm not crazy about wings - but I don't want to suddenly have to make a quick exit from wherever I am, holding my crotch to keep things from slipping any further out of position.

Perhaps the addition of a small piece of velcro to the bottom-side of the pad would work. And it could attach to ... a piece of cloth (cotton or flannel or whatever) wrapped around the crotch of the underwear, which also has a small piece of velcro attached to it.
And the underwear velcro-cloth would be removable ... so one wouldn't be stuck wearing one pair of undies all the while the pad(s) were needed.

Either you didn't get back, yahaira, or you forgot about posting.

My bulky yarn acquisitions are beginning to feel lonely and unloved. And I don't know anyone with the S-'n-B book to check out sararosa's suggestion.

Why can't I be more inventive on my own? Sigh. I get jealous looking at craftster forums.
828  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Red lacey belt. on: May 29, 2005 12:04:12 PM
Love this belt! Good work.
Many thanks for the pattern as well.

I have added it to the incredibly looong list of things I MUST knit.

(When in second hand stores, I usually check through those Golden Hands hardcover books for patterns or ideas - just b/c they're old dosen't mean they can't be used.)

I wonder ... if an i-cord would look OK and/or work OK - instead of a long fringe?
For some reason I have an irrational phobia about hanging strings/threads.
I have this idea they would "hang" all over the place after a while, start fraying or disintegrating almost immediately, etc. etc.

Well, I won't know until I get at it. Right?
Thanks again.

I have just come into possession of several dozen balls of bulky yarn, and had no idea of what to do with it.
Another sweater I do not need! But I love your scarf!
(And it being a quick knit is an added bonus.)

Could you post your pattern please?

Thank you in advance,

I am in awe. Both of the material and of the shape - very handy for not losing things. And I'll bet that it is very comfortable to use - not heavy and flexible.

However did you do it?
Although I doubt that I could ever. (I can just see the wrinkles and ripped paper that would result if I ever tried something like that.)
