31  Cute Knitted Pincushions! in Knitting: Completed Projects by rocknrollfun on: November 08, 2006 11:44:47 AM
I modeled these pincushions after fidget's adorable sewn pincushions in the "there's no such thing as too many pincushions" thread.  here is the link (i have a hard time inserting hyperlinks in craftster posts for some reason, sorry!):


basically i just knitted a ball, then proceeded with her instructions to create these guys.  enjoy!

33  Re: First Project!! Basic Ribbed Scarf in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by rocknrollfun on: September 18, 2006 06:34:55 AM
t's easy, I promise.  When you want to add a new ball of the same yarn, the best thing to do tie the two balls together with a surgeon's knot, then continue knitting & finish off the ends later.  This was a little different, since I wanted the  knot to be at the end of a row so it would look like the yarn magically changed from blue to brown.  Here's what I did, though I understand there's a bunch of ways to do it:

1.  Knit to the end of a row.
2.  Make a slipknot with the black yarn and slip the loose white end
     of the new ball through it.
3.  Push the black knot all the way up so it is snug against the first
    stitch on your needle.  Tighten it so that it ain't moving.

4.  Now just start knitting with the black yarn & ignore the two tails. 
    When it comes time, just finish them off in the appropriate color. 

I hope this helps!  Let me know if it doesn't, I'll take pictures of the whole process.  Thanks for the compliments on my scarf too!!  Smiley

34  First Project!! Basic Ribbed Scarf in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by rocknrollfun on: September 17, 2006 03:19:17 PM
That's right, my first knitted, finished project EVER!  This is almost my first post ever, too, though I've been nosing around Craftster for ages.  Anyway, I finally had the time to teach myself to knit, so I went for the Ribbed for Her Pleasure scarf to practice knits & purls.  I ended up practicing adding a new ball, too, cuz I ran out of the blue!   Roll Eyes


and here's the part that I am most proud of, adding the new ball!


It's basic, but I'm totally proud.  I'm almost finished with another scarf that I will post soon.  I'm a knitting FOOL now!!!   Grin
