41  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Deb Stoller is my hero! on: March 18, 2005 10:44:32 AM
Interesting. I would think that they would want symbols of fair labor. Or something else that condemned the oppression.

They could have at least encircled the nike symbol in the no-smoking type cross out circle!

I haven't picked up the mag yet, but I found this little blurb online:

MicroRevolt, a group of knitters whose projects investigate sweatshops and capitalism, have contributed their "Nike Blanket Petition. Made from squares donated by knit hobbyists, each square is a petition for fair labor. Currently 14 x 9 feet, the blanket when completed will be sent to Nike CEO Phil Knight along with a letter demanding that Nike apparel be manufactured in accordance with established International Labor Organization conventions. Cat Mazza of MicroRevolt will be at ThreeWalls on Saturday, October 16th, to teach knitters to make 4x4 inch squares which will be used for the Nike Blanket's border.

43  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Marsupial Tote Modification - will it work? on: March 18, 2005 09:28:21 AM
My sister loved my tote, but wanted something a bit different and all in black. So this is what I'm thinking:

Making the base 10x60 (instead of 16x44) and then working in the round 10x30 about 10-12 inches high. I would use the right twists to make the shaping work. Binding off one of the 30st panels. Separating the other panels into a 30st by about 6 inch flap, and 2 10st straps worked in garter. I plan on using the ring method shown in candy stripers to secure the strap. I would add the snap and some other silver embellishments to spruce it up a bit. It would be felted of course.

Do these measurements, concepts sound ok? Basically I want a simple messenger bag/purse with a nice long strap so that she can handle it and her two year old without dropping anything/one.

I have everything to make these now - including the two set of dpns. They are 5 & 7's - I'm hoping I can use them for something down the road - maybe other mittens or socks?

I'd vote for ya Booglass!

No offense to the lovely models in the first two books, but it might have been nice to see a curvier girl, even if she was just modeling a hat or a celly cozy!
47  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: easter chick egg cosies + tutorial on: March 17, 2005 09:54:13 AM
I'm gonna go get some cheapy yellow yarn (probably red heart) and make up a bunch of these. Can anyone tell me how many chickies they got out of a skein (preferably with the wt/yds of the skein as well) so I can calculate? I hate to end up with three million pounds of cheap yellow yarn.
48  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: sigma tank for big girls? on: March 17, 2005 09:22:54 AM
I'm thinking of knitting that tank in the 2x pattern. Haven't decided on a yarn yet. I might do in it in some Bernat denim style that I have lying around from a class I took. And if it works out I would probably consider doing it in a couple of different yarns. Can't have enough tanks around here!

The lady at my lys is a doll. She even gave me tips for joins, etc. when I showed her the project I was working on. I took the book in, showed her what I wanted to make and she gave me a bunch of options.

I still think we should come up with that yarn database folks were talking about in the other thread though!
50  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: GRACE for newbie knitters who want a simple knitalong... on: March 16, 2005 10:55:41 AM
Is everyone's sweater turning out semi see-through? Or are some of you using yarns that will actually be wearable without something underneath? I'd love to make this, but I'm not wearing two shirts in Florida. Sorry, it ain't happening. But it's so pretty!
