311  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / blocking/shrinking a wool sweater on: April 08, 2004 02:00:10 PM
I made a wool sweater, but after I blocked it is seems to have stretched and now it's too big, despite me being careful and laying it flat to dry).  Is there a safe way to shirnk it?  I was going to just try soaking it in warm water quickly, but I thoguht I would check here and see if anyone had experience with this problem and a good idea on fixing it.

Here is a cute one from knitty.com.  Looks pretty easy too.  I have not made it yet, but it's on my list.

I made a shirt for my sister last night.  Since I did not have stencil and can't draw to save my life, I used a big blocky stamp of a leaf that had very little detail.  I stamped the shape on to the shirt, and then just colored over with the bleach pen.  It was easy and quick and came out pretty cool.

If you can poke holes in them...a wind chime/sun catcher or a "beaded" curtain.

Hopefully this hasen't been addressed and I was just dense about finding a thread.  This is sort of along the lines of a copyright question....How much do you have to change a knitting pattern before you can sell it without infringing on someone elses work?  Are differnt colors or patterns enough? Slight changes in the construction?  Or maybe this does not matter at all?

I recently made a couple of cell phone cozys using Lily sugar and cream cotton yarn on size 7's.  You can get it at big craft stores like MC Moore and it's about $1.50 a skien.  So far I have made two cozy's and have plenty left to make more.

If you use vodka does the essentail oil hide the vodka smell...I would not want my room to smeel like a bar-any more than it already may  Tongue
Where does one get polysorbate 20?  What is it exactly?  A liquid?

Reynols Lopi is about $5.50 at my LYS.  I think for 100% wool that is a fairly good price (cheaper than black sheep, but more itchy).  I have used it to make Icelandic sweaters and I am now using the remnants to make a bag that I will be felting.
319  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Felting Stockinette stitch on: March 17, 2004 06:29:45 PM
This may be a silly question, but I am sort of winging it on making a bag to felt (and I have never felted before).  I am knitting it on circular needles in stockinette stitch, I am thinking it will sort of be hobo bag style when done.  I am wondering, will felting flatten out the "roll" you get with stockinette, or will I have a felted "roll"?  Hope that makes sense....
thank you.

I think Zeeby's bag is pretty good for a beginner, it's mostly just making squares/rectangles.  There is also possibilities for really cute variations (see the Star version mention in this thread).  Plus then you have a bag to carry around more knitting.
