23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Yarn dolls are still knitting. Right? on: April 05, 2006 06:40:25 PM
I took this photo a little while ago and thought it might give some one else a laugh.
Here I am with the doll version of my daughter.
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / New Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2006 on: March 22, 2006 12:34:30 PM
I was so excited to find this in my mailbox just now, until I started to look through it. I can't find one thing in it that I would make. The fit of some stuff is so bad that it even pulls in the photo's. If the professionals can't get it right how can we expect to.
At first glance some stuff looks cute, but after taking a good luck none of it works for me.

What do you guys think?
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting Anthology call for submissions on: March 18, 2006 07:56:41 PM
I got this info from my Church of Craft email. I thought some craftsters might have some interesting stories.


I posted some info on That's Clever coming to NYC in the NY section.

Voyageur Press, Fall 2007
There are all sorts of reasons to knit, and knitters wield the needles
in happy times and times of ambiguity; to celebrate, to unwind, to
distract, to show off. Many of us also knit through times of crisis and
uncertainty, through the rough patches that pepper any life. What
determines a crisis is an individual matter: illness (ours or that of a loved
one) and death; war; financial strain; loneliness; radical life change;
stresses from outside forces, or from those that lurk within. Knitting
can calm and relieve, focus our mind and also help it to drift,

For a new anthology of 20-25 essays, I am looking for writers to
contribute essays on ?knitting through it.?  These stories need not
relate directly to the examples mentioned above, but should fall somewhere
within the parameters of the general theme, with an emphasis on the
positive transformative power of knitting. Essays may be about a personal
experience, or the experience of someone known to  ╄ or even, more
vaguely, known of by ╄ the writer. Special consideration will be given
to voices not often heard from in the knitting community, those that
speak of the immigrant and Native American experiences, for example.

Full-length essays will be between 1,500-3,000 words. Payment: $100
Shorter reminiscences of up to 300 words will also be considered but
the editor regrets that no payment can be offered for these.

Please submit only your best work. I am looking for strong narratives
with excellent writing, good storytelling, and diverse voices.

ABOUT THE EDITOR: Lela Nargi is author of Knitting Lessons: Tales from
the Knitting Path (Tarcher/Penguin 2003), and editor of the forthcoming
anthology Knitting Memories (Voyageur Press Fall 2006). She contributes
articles and essays, including many about knitting, to a host of
national magazines, journals and anthologies.

TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK: please send electronically to
lelanargi@earthlink.net, with essay pasted into the body of the email.
in the subject line. Any inquiries can also be directed to this

FORMAT: If accepted for publication, I will request that you
electronically submit a final double-spaced copy, along with a short bio. Please
include your name, address, phone number, and email address with all

DEADLINE: September 30, 2006
26  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / That's Clever in NYC! on: March 18, 2006 07:53:23 PM
I got this info from my Church of Craft email. Hope to see some craftsters on the show.

**HGTVs "That's Clever" looking for New York City indie crafters and

HGTVs crafty show "That's Clever" will be taping artist profiles in New
York City and Philadelphia in May 2006, and we invite all COC members
to apply to be on the show!

If you're not familiar with us, we're in our 3rd season and you can
check us out on HGTV at Noon and 5 pm EST/PST,  11am and 4pm CST.  There's
also loads of info on hgtv.com if you'd rather surf your way to more

I definitely want to make sure we get some fun indie crafters with
super cool projects represented, but we also do stories on what I call
artisans -- you know, the people who straddle the line between art and
craft (and where is that line anyway) -- I'm thinking of potters, metal
sculpture artists, glass blowers, that sort of thing... so if that's you
or someone you know, we need some of those folks too!

If you're interested, live within an hour of NYC proper, and are ready
to show your stuff on national TV,  please send an e-mail to me, Lisa:
LSichi@WellerGrossman.com, and request an application!

If you're selected, a crew will visit you in your home or studio and
profile you and your art/craft project.  We'll be there April 10-25 doing
around 18 stories.
27  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First craftster finished object post: The Sasha bag on: March 18, 2006 04:15:13 PM
This is one of several bags I made over the last week. I am very proud of it. It closes with two snaps on either side of the handles and is lined with purple fabric.

Hope you like.

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What to feel when a sweater dies? on: February 17, 2006 05:49:45 PM
I knit Simply Marilyn after dying for it after seeing Guessica's version here on craftster. I can't afford the D.Bliss yarn the pattern calls for so I used knitpicks Sierra. Different gauge, different nightmare. I also made the sad mistake of keeping in mind the alterations made by women several inches shorter and way more petite than myself. End result too small, too short, and too frogged.

I feel saaaaddd!

I'm hoping that the yarn will be reborn into a self designed raglan.  I'm pretty much just gonna wing it so this yarn be visit the frog pond a second time!

Wish me luck.
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Brown sheep mill seconds? on: February 11, 2006 05:53:51 PM
Anyone have any exprience with mill seconds? This ebay seller has some on sale.
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Mint copy of Loop d loop for sale on: January 18, 2006 10:55:13 AM
I was going to put it on ebay or half.com for sale, but if a Brooklyn based craftster wants it, its; up for grabs.

Amazon.com has them for $20 so I'll let it go for $18, plus shipping if no one in Brooklyn wants it.
