1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sock Pattern Q on: November 26, 2008 09:15:05 AM
Hey all, I'm working on my first pair of socks and I'm stuck at the heel flap. The pattern says:

Now knit the heel flap:
Divide stitches for heel flap
Knit 16 stitches (to end of needle 1)
Set 32 stitches aside (on needles 2 and 3) for instep
Turn work. S1, and purl back 15 stitches (all stitches on needles 1 and 4)

So where I'm confused is that I cast on 64 stitches, so there are 16 stitches on each needle. If I'm purling back 15 (+1 that was slipped) that's only the stitches on needle 1 and not 4. I would need to purl 32 stitches to work all of the stitches on needles 1 & 4. So...what on earth do I do here.

This was my first time working with a lace pattern, and I think it came out pretty good!

Close up of the lace:

I can't wait to take it to yoga on monday!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First Cardigan on: October 20, 2008 04:28:53 PM
I started the Go Everywhere, Go with Everything cardigan from Sn'B three years ago. I only had half a sleeve left when I put it down for a year the first time. I picked it back up, finished it, sewed it together and then didn't bother to weave in the loose ends or crochet on the boarder. Then last night out of nowhere I got it out and finished it. It's a little to short for me, but it looks okay with a long shirt.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / High waisted skirt on: February 17, 2008 12:05:32 PM
Project I recently completed for school. First project I've gotten all possible points on:

High waisted skirt with yoke and pleat. The fabric is an old bed sheet I found at goodwill that doesn't wrinkle, ever.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Casette Tape Cases on: April 26, 2007 05:45:58 PM
My boyfriends record label is putting out a cassette tape by the band The Capstan Shafts. He asked me to help with the packaging.

They're made from recycled toilet paper rolls that have been folded and machine stitched together on the sides. After that we had to go back and loosen up the stitches so the tapes would fit in.
The band drew the art work which we made into stickers and stuck on the front of the tape cases and the side
The red line is just a cute decorative paint job
The tapes have all been hand dubbed
Only 100 copies were released because it was a lotttt of work

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Dinosaur Fabric Dress on: April 03, 2007 07:29:15 PM
I made a halter top out of this quite awhile ago. It's been reborn in dress form (pun intended):

It actually looks a whole lot better on me.

7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / i need sewing machine help ASAP on: March 19, 2007 08:14:44 PM
I am about to cry I am so frustrated.

I sew on the test piece of fabric and it's absolutely fine but the minute I touch my actual pattern with it though the thread starts to jam. It starts to form a nice little ball of thread on the underside of the fabric.

I have absolutely no idea what's going on. I've adjusted the needle and bobbin tension ad nauseum. I've looked through the manual and can't find anything. Help? I'm desperate. Feel free to suggest even the most obvious things because I'm completely out of ideas.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Red and black houndstooth on: January 15, 2007 01:46:47 PM
It's been awhile Craftster.

No before pictures sadly. Just picture the following as 12 sizes too big, long sleeved and with a hemline reaching to mid calf.

I'm not mad I swear! This'll probably be needed to worn with some tights. It's a tad skimpy.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / fitz patterns on: October 17, 2006 03:12:22 PM
I just found this site and fell completely in love! (www.fitzpatterns.com) I was wondering if anyone knew of any other places on the internet with downloadable patterns.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Dress Forms on: September 10, 2006 04:32:40 PM
So I tried the whole duct tape dress form thing and it was a bust  (pun intended). So I was wondering if anyone could tell me how good the dress forms you can buy from a place like Hancocks are. You know the ones with the cranks> THANKS
