Uniqua is my most favorite - her & Tyrone. I adore the music on that show. Me & my 5yo - everyday at 11am before we fix lunch.

That is too cute! My son has a stuffed about that size of Spiderman, we call him Spiderbaby. I should make Spiderbaby clothes! Grin

Oooh! I have a very pretty empire waist dress that I could do this too. It's too short for my long legs, but I bet it would drape beautifully! Thanks for the tutorial!  Grin

Did you guys use "upholstery" fabric for yours? I looked around the fabric store the other day and the only cute things I found were all 100% cotton. Is there a special area of Joann's or the fabric store that I should be buying from? I don't wanna spend all the time hand-sewing this and then have my needles do a number on it!

I made the blanket from this pattern from Michael's.

And the hat came from this pattern.

The blanket took forever, but it's very pretty and soft. The hat was quick and easy! Cheesy

Thank you both so much for the link. I did some searching but must have missed that thread. Off for reading! Smiley

Dang. It turns out I can't this weekend. My husband made plans for us to play cards on Sunday afternoon. But next week for sure!
80  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn Conundrum. on: March 10, 2005 05:32:19 AM
I'm a newbie knitter and I have a few questions about yarn. Let me start off by saying that I'm a very strict vegetarian (almost vegan) so using animal fibers is not something I'm so sure about. But I certainly can't make everything I knit out of cotton or linen. And then there's acrylic = petroleum = ecological nightmare.... *sigh*

So tell me about yarns. 
Are there animal fiber yarns that could be considered "animal-friendly"?
For plant fibers - what brands/types are good, bad, or just plain ugly?

I'm knitting a baby blanket in a very soft acrylic blend right now. It's my first project and I already did a hat in the same yarn. But then everywhere I go I see "acrylic is teh suck!". Who knew knitting would cause such a moral/ethical dilemna for me? Wink
