Ha ha, awesome.. that happened to me a couple times, and once I figured it out I was super excited..

Glad to see I'm not the only one!

P.S. Yours looks very nice, nice little ringlets.

Aw! Thanks! I figured out how to do it on my own last night..

I would definately donate, but we're poor.. and I mean poor.  We've got $50.  Yep.  Ha ha.

I do have one question though:

It says to repeat rows 2 - 3,  6 times (13 rows total).. (I hadn't thought of this part.. hoorah!) my gauge is 14sts by 18 rows..

Would I have to do the math (multipy or divide some by 6? or the number of sts, whatever)?

I don't get it - I can make my own patterns, but when it comes to pre-made ones, I get all.. overthinky.

Very cute!

Good thing you triple stranded! Homespun tends to stretch.. a lot!

Good idea! Muy cute!

I'm way too poor to buy yarn, so I have to make do with what I have.

I double stranded the Simply Soft (after trying it on every needle size in a fit of desperation), on 9s, 10s, 10.5s..

and on 10.5s, I got really excited, but then recounted - 14 sts by 18 rows in a 10cm square  Cry

If I go to 8s, the rows will.. increase? but.. hm.. I'm so terribly confusled.

Does anyone know how I can convert this? I want to cry.

Roe - I used oh-so-cheap and oh-so-soft Caron Simply Soft. I think my gauge was way off, because I had to make quite a few alterations.. But ya know.. "all's well that ends well"


I just cast on and knit the eight rows, before it occured to me: check yo' gauge foo'!

What kind of alterations did you make? I'm using the same yarn!

Other people: Lionbrand Jiffy knits up at: 14.5sts + 18 rows = 10cm with 10s.  Close enough? Ha ha.

I REALLY want to make this, and can't afford to go out and buy any yarn ;____;

My first name is crazy, and super ethnic: Killoran.  I feel your pain.

My last name was Gordon (still is!) Now it's Gordon-Frash.  Ha ha.. like backwards Japanese Flash Gordon.

Go us.
17  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: domain name and web hosting? advice please! on: April 13, 2005 10:26:26 PM
Not sure about how to show inventory amount, but I did find a hosting service where you can host your site for free (and still use your domain name, and not have their advertising). It's www.doteasy.com. I just used it for a site I'm working on for my brother's band (www.thebikes.net). In the past I've used other hosting services, but as the band has no money...we tried doteasy and it seems okay so far. Haven't tried it yet but they also have scripts for photo galleries and blogs as part of their free stuff. I have no affiliation with them by the way. Just thought I'd pass this along.

I'm asking for the free account, but it made me pick a yearly thing.  Now it's asking for my card number.  Will my site still be free?

Wow, that looks great.

The texture of that fabric is lovely!

Great photos!

Hi! I'm Killoran! I'll be starting Tempting soon - as soon as my wrist stops hurting (knitting), and my head/neck/shoulder stops hurtng (husband dropped me on my head  Sad)

I'm going to use Caron Simply Soft, and I was wondering.. any tips from those who used this? How many skeins do I need.  I bought two, but I have a feeling I'll need one more!

I told my husband that YOUR husband is from Longbottom, andd he said "..I know where that is." Well duh.. ha ha
