1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need help with my first intarsia... on: July 05, 2010 05:17:27 AM
I have a great idea for a scarf but don't know how to quite execute it! I'm a huge Beatles fan and thought of doing one of their lyrics down the length of the scarf (either "All you need is Love" or, depending on how many rows would make it long enough, "And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make") but I have never done this kind of work.

So, what I thought I would do is this--st st with a garter st border, using a XS alphabet, and in white on black (maybe with the word Love in red, or the O being a red heart).

Anyone have any idea on how I can design this pattern? How many stitches and rows and some basics on how to knit it? Is it too difficult? Do I need bobbins? When I knit it, the design is shown on the purl side and the knit side I should just knit the white wherever it shows up, yes? Thanks for any and all advice!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Has anyone here bought a grab bag from Webs? on: March 23, 2010 12:21:30 PM
Re: Webs Yarns at www.yarn.com

I'm SO curious, but don't want to spend over $100 on itchy yarn and want to know if you get really good stuff or if you were disappointed. I was wondering if anyone had bought a grab bag and, if so, what they got. I found one person blogging about her box, and she took pictures. Some of the yarn was on cones and looked super-scratchy, but she also didn't state if she bought the 'standard' or the 'luxury' grab bag. I'd love to build up my stash, but if its not really worth it, I'll stick to smileys and ebay. Thanks!

totally voting for this. Very cute, unique and you took the time to make this!

PS: My cat is named Stella. Great minds think alike!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn website similar to Smileys? on: September 12, 2009 07:38:57 PM
Having discovered Smileys (yay!) I was wondering if there are other websites out there with deep discounts on yarn...any thoughts?

I haven't gone through all 15 pages of this thread yet, so forgive me if this idea has been given...but I think it would be neat to do vintage knitting, knitting a pattern from a book published before, say, 1960. Or even a specific decade.

thank you madamq! I'm making these for the 3 nieces for Xmas, which will make them happy for 15 minutes or so until they are destroyed after I strictly tell them to be somewhat gentle with them. But I'll be the auntie who rocks, I'm sure, and I'll have fun making them! Such a great idea. I'm making stars as we speak!

In love...

I'd also love a tute, I think I can figure out how you did the outside but its the putting it all together (and the folded in sides) that I'm not totally getting. I'd love to make this for my mother using travel magazine pictures, she's quite the jet-setter, for Christmas.

Love this. Just beautiful.

OK, new to Craftster, so I know this post is old...but man, this bracelet is AWESOME!

I have a question, and I've read through all the pages. I know you are putting them on headpins and then attaching them to a chain bracelet, but how do you punch the headpins through the stars without messing them up? Do it before or after the mod podge? Do you use a tool or just shove the headpin through?

I so love this bracelet. You did an amazing job.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / T-shirt into pants...I can't find this anywhere on: September 01, 2009 09:58:23 AM
Not on the tutorial list and can't find it on google. I need the tutorial for turning a T-shirt into a pair of pants. Much appareciated!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / It's my birthday! And I got 3 skeins of Cascade "Jazz" yarn! What to make? on: May 16, 2009 11:32:05 AM
From my sister!

Not much, only 55 yards a skein, so it's scarf time. But I've never made anything with yarn like this before--it alternates thick and thin.

Garter stitch? Or Stockinette? Or a rib stitch? Ideas? I'm not a hat person, and I searched for patterns specifically for this yarn and came up with nothing. Thanks for any help you can offer!
