21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted/felted Christmas ornaments or pins for clothing on: November 27, 2006 11:46:42 PM
I experimented this past weekend and made some simple Christmas gifts.  I made them to be lapel pins for clothing- but, they could just as easily be Christmas ornaments or tied onto packages.

I loosely knitted a tree shape out of green wool and added a brown trunk.  I felted one to see if I was on the right track-- size wise (you can tell that the prototype is a bit bigger in size Cheesy) and made a few more- felted them.. let them dry for 2 days. 

I sewed and stitched trim and some bangles/beads and whatever I could find in my crafting supplies for the decorations.  I just happened to have a star shape for the top.. w/ a hole in the middle and I discovered that if I stitched the star on in every direction-- the stitching looked like another star.  They will have pins sewed on the back so they can be put onto coats or clothing.  If you need more help- just let me know- but, truthfully.. I just winged it and no matter what they all ended up looking about the same.

22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby cabled Jacket- now w/ a photo! Thanks for the person who fixed it! on: October 20, 2006 02:14:12 AM
I knitted this for a co-worker's new baby.  I made it pretty big so that they baby would be able to wear it this winter.
*This is my first time to post a photo- just hope it works!  Cheesy  (If it doesn't can someone help me?  I did set up an account w/ Photo bucket and did follow the directions: upload image/etc.  Ok, crossing my fingers and holding my head just right in the hopes that this does work.)

23  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need a guide to understand knitting sitches/directions for a Japanese chart on: October 09, 2006 07:45:46 PM
I bought a knitting book- 'Japanese' and I can understand the knit and purl symbols (from looking at the photo of the completed sweater) but, I can't figure out some of the other symbols.  There isn't an 'explanation' chart for the symbols used in the book.   The entire book is written in Japanese.

SO, is there a standardized guide that I can find on the Internet to help me understand the symbols/etc?   

Thanks so much for your help.
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / The Barnyard (movie) on: September 03, 2006 04:04:13 AM
I just saw this movie- and noticed that a local famer's wife was knitting -- however, she was holding her needles upside down and knitting with the needles held downward towards her lap.   

*However, she was talented enough to knit lace- even using this 'awkward' knitting method.   Grin Cheesy

YOU would think w/ all the money that they spend to make a movie- that they could actually find someone who knitted and notice such a simple thing as to how that person holds the needles.  BUT, at least knitting was featured in a movie!  Cheesy
