41  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Digestive System Knitalong: Part One on: October 29, 2005 07:20:49 AM
Considering most of the time the work is less than 6" around, a 12" circular needle probably isn't going to do it.  Unless you really love Magic Loop.  Cheesy

I've started the Knitalong.  Part One is Yarn and Materials, part Two will hopefully be going up tomorrow.

Part Five:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60493.msg620875#msg620875

My plan is to post a new set of instructions and some progress photos every couple of days.  I'd love to see your progress too.  If you have any questions, or my instructions don't make sense, PLEASE ask me to explain.  I know I need to work on my pattern-writing skills!

Part One:  Materials

You will need:

1 set U.S. size 6 (4.0 mm) d.p.n.s
1 set U.S. size 8 (5.0 mm) d.p.n.s
1 set U.S. size 10.5 (6.5 mm) d.p.n.s
a tapestry needle
waste yarn for temporary cast-ons
stitch markers (or more waste yarn)
a stitch holder
polyester stuffing

Yarn (what I'm using is in parentheses)

Angry Pink:  Worsted Weight, 1/2 oz.  (Caron Simply Soft Brites: Papaya)
Mellow Pink:  Worsted Weight, 2 oz.  (Red Heart Super Saver: Rose Pink)
Shiny White:  Sport Weight, 1/4 oz.  (Bernat Baby Coordinates:  Natural)
Yellow-Pink:  Super Bulky Weight, 6 oz. (Red Heart Baby Clouds:  Creamsickle)
Soft Pink:  Bulky Weight, 1 oz.  (Bernat Softee Chunky:  Pale Antique Rose)
Burgundy:  Worsted Weight, 1 oz.  (Red Heart Super Saver:  Burgundy)
Green:  Worsted Weight, 1/4 oz.  (Red Heart 4 ply:  Emerald)

Here's a picture of my yarns, in the same order.  

This is a great stashbusting project provided you have a lot of miscellaneous pinks.  If not, I'd love to see someone make an alien digestive system with different colors of green or blue!

I know a lot of people are interested in the pattern but I really need to proofread/beta test it before I can expect anybody else to be able to make it.

Soooo, how about a knit-along?  I could post sections of the pattern along with progress photos as I complete version 2.0, maybe 2-3 installments a week.

Anyone up for it?

Wow.  I wish I'd known in High School that all I had to do to get attention was knit internal organs. 

minouette:  Glad you noticed!  It belongs to  my very patient and understanding fianc.
beatnik_chik:  I'd love to see your heart!  I did a search but couldn't find it.
eunnyjang:  I lightly stuffed the colon and the stomach as I went along, and the liver and tongue were stuffed before I wove the edges together.  My sister was trying to convince me to make it so you could pass an object all the way through, and you could if you really tried, but I don't see why you'd want to.
erikau:  That's really sweet.  Do you have any pics of the kidney?
facelikeallama:  Think about it. Wink
orangeabsinthe:  My fianc was modelling it that way for a while, but I forgot to take pics.  Maybe with version 2.0.
lupinbunny:  I know I've seen that somewhere, actually it was an entire family of knitted nude suits, but now I can't find the link.  I'll keep looking.
humblestumble:  Your second post is so much better out of context!
kp:  Ugh.  Is it ever.  About halfway through I wished I'd started at the top so I could've just given it an ileostomy and called it quits.
Duckie:  Yes!  Coming soon.

All your comments are really encouraging.  Thanks everyone.  Theveryone.

In the U.S. you can often find citric acid in the Jewish/Kosher section.  Sometimes it's called "sour salt."  It's the same as the sugar-like but sour tasting substance they put on Sour Patch Kids.

I'm interested!  October's almost over, do we have an organizer and dates?
48  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: I make... on: October 26, 2005 03:10:37 PM
Hey guys - how about posting in the Craftster classifieds under "Finished crafts to trade?"  The classifieds are SOOO under used, and it seems to me like a lot of the stuff people are doing with the wish-type swaps could be accomplished there.  Plus- no swap organizer needed, and it's searchable!

Help me get more people to use the Craftster Classifieds!  The more people who do, the better a resource it will be for all of us.  And maybe we can get the mods to add a "Will craft for trade" section, instead of having a swap that needs an organizer and only lasts for a short period of time.

I have the pattern, but I desperately need to proofread it, and fix it so the liver's a little less freaky looking.  It's also a little too long to post here.  It'll be on my website, as soon as I have a website to put it on (hopefully the next month or so).

Don't hang it on the wall!  It's huggable, squishable (and washable).  If people want to play with it, let them!  You have no idea how hard it was for me to get it away from my friends and family so I could send it to you.  I'm starting another one as soon as I have a break from other projects.

Thanks for the warning about the pendant.  I'll have to think of somewhere else to put it.  It's sooo pretty, but just a little too heavy to wear.

And, BTW, it's ARRmatie.  Cursed be we who have google-able first names.  Cheesy
