1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sports Classic Slipon on: December 06, 2005 07:01:57 PM
This pattern is from McCalls Fall/Winter 1961 issue. 

It's made from a baby alpaca called "Inca Gold" that I think is produced locally (Montreal). 

More pictures of me looking goofy in it in my blog, dullknits.blogspot.com

Thanks for looking!
2  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Pants Factory on: October 18, 2005 02:38:07 PM
Can anyone recommend a good pants pattern? I have not had much luck with them.  I'm not sure why but the fit always seems to turn out odd. 

I've been looking at Vogue 8131
as I like the style and Vogue are usually cut well. 

Any thoughts?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / decreasing methods on: September 15, 2005 06:32:14 PM
Is there any way to make a right-leaning decrease from the purl side?
4  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / bias-cut slip on: August 28, 2005 06:32:41 PM
Does anyone have a recommendation for a pattern for a bias-cut slip/nightgown?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / iron-on mending patches on: May 23, 2005 09:54:14 AM
I must be rough on my jeans because they're always getting worn patches and holes.  I don't mind darning and patching them, but even with that, existing holes just keep getting bigger and then I have to fix them again.  I have one pair that I keep fixing with this one orange cordouroy, and I swear, by the time I'm finally finished wearing these pants, they're going to be completely orange from the patches!

I'd like to try using that iron-on mending tape to fix these holes, because I think it must bind to all the loose threads and keep the fabric from unravelling further, no? The only thing is, I'm afraid it will make the repaired area very stiff and silly-looking. 

Does anyone have experience with this stuff? Does it work?


6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / gusset question on: May 02, 2005 09:19:04 PM
I've noticed that most of my bags have a seam in the middle of the gusset, at the bottom of the bag.  I wonder if this is a design feature, for added strength, or just done out of convienience?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / LYS on: April 14, 2005 05:53:55 PM
So, this is a word/term that one hears quite a lot around here.  For a long time I assumed it was the name of a chain of knitting and/or craft stores in the States (I'm in Canada).  Then today a brand-new crazy idea occurred to me: could it actually be an acronym for "Local Yarn Store"? Please let me in on the secret of LYS! I'm dying to know!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitty tulip socks on: April 11, 2005 02:25:06 PM
Has anyone tried the Knitty socks with tulips on the heels? I love them! But I am a little confused--in fact a lot confused-- by the last line of the pattern, which reads "graft two sets of eight".  Now, at this point you have sixteen stitches left of course, so I assume it just means to cast them off together. But Huh how??
9  CANADA / Quebec / montreal - knitting on: February 20, 2005 03:35:07 PM
Where do people go to shop for wool in Montreal?  There is only so much I can do with the stuff they sell at Zellers...
