oooo... I haven't swapped in a while- I think because my subconscious has been waiting for this topic!

You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

Your bag makes me happy AND it makes me want to try intarsia.

I'm guessing it wasn't completely by accident that it complements the color of your bike so well?  Wink
13  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Butterfly a-long (Rowan 37) on: June 06, 2006 09:41:45 AM
Hi there,

I am making butterfly in dress form, and I think that it is coming out super long. Has anyone else had this trouble? I'm 5'2" and making the small size, and am at the waist shaping. Holding it to my waist makes it hang nearly to my ankles though!

Luckily I am not knitting it in the round, so I am stopping the side that I am in the middle of, and starting the other side while trying to tinker with the row count. If I were a more experienced knitter I would try to knit it from the top down, but I think that would be too confusing for me.

If anyone has any tips it would be greatly appreciated. But maybe I just have terrible gauge...

Ooh, I was just looking at this pattern yesterday and thinking that I'd love to make it non-tunic length. Was it easy to modify?

It looks beautiful on you- I love the brown.
15  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Not Monkey Blanket (post worked this time!) on: March 23, 2006 09:16:33 AM
Thanks everyone!

Lilhatshack, I think you designed the cutest baby set ever! I love how gender neutral it is.

And thanks for offering to help- I don't think the problem is the instructions though. It was me waiting till the last minute and then not paying enough attention to what I was doing.

The baby was born 10 weeks early Sad which is kind of why I had to rush it. He and mom are both great though!
16  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Not Monkey Blanket (post worked this time!) on: March 21, 2006 07:39:17 PM
My computer quit when I tried to post this yesterday.

Anyway, I had a pretty busy week last week: I started a new job, welcomed a 13 year old dog into my home, and learned how to crochet! Of course I had to have my first project be a baby blanket that I had a mere 5 days to complete. I used Lion Wool-Ease Chunky and Homespun.

I loved making granny squares! They are easy peasy, and gave the 14-year-old girl inside of me that once only wore vintage clothes from the late '60s and early 70's a special thrill.

And did you notice that there is a lack of monkey faces? By the time I was ready to make them I only had a couple hours to complete them, and they were just a bit too confusing for that me to figure out in time. I made one and it is pretty ugly.

The recipient really liked it even sans monkeys.

I got the books Alterknits and Hand Knit Holidays, both of which I love.

And my adorable BF got me a Craftster T shirt! The skull with knitting needle crossbones- I'd wear it every day if I could.

If I were a mail carrier I'd want to steal them! Beautiful!
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Now, a knitted dress. Must belt tightly. on: October 16, 2005 06:46:38 PM
Wow, that's amazing! When I saw "knitted dress" and "belt" I thought Tiffany in the 80's, not va-va-voom. It's beautiful! Please post pictures of everything else you make for the fiber arts show because you are talented. You could definitely sell your patterns.

Wow, that is really unique and beautiful. I love how rich the teal is in the Lamb's Pride.

I'll have to remember that knit skirts help out in the ass department; I don't have much back there so I need all the help I can get!
