1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Lace fingerless glove (pattern + instructions) on: November 30, 2007 12:37:19 AM
Found a photo!  You can see it on the first page in the original post.  If you don't have laceweight, use sock yarn - in fact, I recommend sock yarn.  Back when I first wrote up this pattern, my LYS didn't carry sock yarn, so I didn't have any to use.

I'm really sorry you've all been in the dark!  I thought I'd deleted this account (I have a different username here now), so the email notifications and whatnot were going to an email address I hardly ever check. 

Unfortunately, I don't have photos, because they got eaten when my hard drive crashed a couple of years ago.  I don't have the gloves, either.  I'll see what I can find.  Personally, I think this pattern could use a rewrite that would give it a thumb gusset; right now it's just a tube with a hole in the side for the glove.  Rick rib is a lace pattern that looks like strips of zig-zags - you can see a photo of the lace at the Walker Treasury Project.

what do you think about the teal dress and the green dress?
I like the layering and the colors, and they would look great with a sash - you could tie it around the ribcage or around the waist.  Would look really cute with a shrug, too. Awesome that you are taking this one item and trying it out in different ways!

I have a "wedding" dress in my closet - the dress I pull out when I'm going to a wedding.  It's simple and classic and I know that I can do things like eat and sit and dance in it.  For events like weddings, I like knowing that I'm wearing a predictable outfit and I'm not going to wonder what will happen if it's windy, or if it will ride up really far when I sit down, or if the waistband will slip down and I'll have to keep yanking it up...you know. 
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: little flowers for my hair on: May 21, 2005 07:22:45 PM
and on this site, http://www.helloknitty.com/videoinstr.htm, there is a video of knitting a flower but no instuctions, can anyone tell me what she is doing?
The pattern for the flower comes with a couple of the hat patterns they have for sale (http://www.helloknitty.com/fall2003/fallwinterhats.htm).
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: why do they make "baby yarns" that arnt baby friendly? on: April 05, 2005 02:43:48 PM
Keep in mind that these are yarns on the lower end of the quality scale - you can machine wash and dry them, which a lot of parents appreciate, but you are right about the shedding.  Write to the companies and ask them why they have baby-unfriendly yarns, I say.  Not all of their yarns shed, and some of them are good for making baby items but aren't labeled as being for babies - all you need is a yarn that's not itchy, that breathes well (natural fibers or natural fiber blend), easy to care for, and appropriate for the item you plan to make. 

Dale of Norway Baby Ull is a fingering weight machine washable merino wool, soft enough for a  (non-allergic) baby and it wears like steel.  Berroco Lullaby is soft nylon ribbon that can be used for baby clothing and blankets.  I've used Pakucho organic cotton for baby hats and washcloths, and I'd like to make a baby blanket with it someday.  Your LYS should be able to make good recommendations based on experience

Some knitters can read a chart for a crochet or cross-stitch pattern as if it were for knitting, and then add the image to a basic pattern for a hat, bag, etc.  If your mother doesn't want to bother with anything but a complete pattern (unlikely to come from anyone but Sanrio, due to copyright issues), maybe you can find someone else who would be willing to knit to your specifications?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Spunmag is UP! on: February 15, 2005 11:27:40 AM
but they also were inflammatory enough that a few people unsubscribed to our lists because of that and IMHO.

Oh, that's too bad.  I kind of understand, though -  I was over at my sister's house when I read Spun, and IMHO kind of took me by surprise.  I finished reading it at home, 'cause it didn't seem to be appropriate while my nephew and his friends were running in and out of the house.  He's had the birds and the bees talk but I don't think my sister wants to have to discuss oral sex with him ever yet.  And then I'd have to tell my sister that it was because I was reading...a "knitting lifestyle" magazine.  Maybe some people unsubbed because they check their email at work?

Ohhh, cute!  Where did you find it?

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / iPod cozy toy on: January 10, 2005 08:23:38 PM

I like to think of it as my iPod's cosplay cozy.  The front is stuffed, so it has a plush toy feel to it, and there is a pocket between the plush front and the cozy sleeve so I can tuck the earbuds in there when not in use.  The strap on the back was made with two button-down shirts - I cut off the button-down parts, so the top of the strap has a buttonhole for the earbud cord and a buttonhole to fasten at the bottom, and then used another strip of fabric from the shirt for the carry strap (which I would make longer if I was doing this again).
