1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Picot edge--how to? on: March 29, 2005 11:16:38 AM
Hey guys!
I've tried searching this topic with no luck, so I'm wondering if anyone has any links to a site that teaches picot edging. Thanks so much Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I want to knit AND read on: March 02, 2005 04:20:41 PM
  Undecided I'm wondering if any of you guys read while you knit, and how you manage to hold the book up while you do it. Strange question, I know, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask; I have a new Stephen King book I want to crack open, and a top from Knit1 I want to start...
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / "Purple" Haze, 1st sweater! on: February 27, 2005 03:23:32 AM
Here's my first sweater, a pale turquoise version of Purple Haze from Knit Wit. I made a few adjustments (more details and thoughts about the pattern can be found on my blog), and added the buttons because I thought it had a retro feel. I had some issues with the seaming (ugly) but blocking made things a bit less noticeable.

You can sort of see the collar here. It goes around the back of the neck.

Thanks for looking, guys Smiley
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Red Cord Messenger on: February 19, 2005 08:46:30 AM
Hey guys,
here is my first attempt at a bag and at sewing by machine. I did not use a commercial pattern because I'm not sure I would be able to understand those yet, but instead just cut a pattern from cardboard. I added the piping as the last step, but I screwed it up a bit as I had difficulty sewing the outer fabric, lining and piping at once. Anyway, what do you think?

Thanks for looking Smiley
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A Mohair Hug on: January 20, 2005 02:12:33 PM
This is my Hug from Magknits.com. Its made of a mohair blend (Mohair Plus, I think). I apologize for the terrible pictures--my boyfriend was busy tonight  Tongue

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A Pink Bag! on: January 20, 2005 02:09:37 PM
This is a bag I made over Xmas. This was my first bag, and the pattern's from Helloknitty.com :

It was super easy, and this is a nice knitting site to check out.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Weekend Knitting--errata page? on: January 16, 2005 05:22:42 AM
Hey guys,
I indulged last night and bought Weekend Knitting...its beautiful! Some of you guys have mentioned this book before, but if you don't have it, and you're looking for an nice, inspiring knitting book, I suggest this one.
Anyway, I was just wondering if there is an errata page online. I googled but came up empty. Maybe there are no errors? Ha ha   Tongue
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rowan "Floss" on: January 09, 2005 11:29:12 AM
Here are a few pics of "Floss" I recently completed. It was a fun, quick project, the pattern was great and straight forward, and I loved the yarn (Polar), however, I definately would have used smaller needles had I realized how much Polar can change (for the bigger) when blocked. Gertie you warned me, I know...Smiley I think I may have to rig up some kind of drawstring around the top, as my boobs aren't holding it up much. Thanks for looking!

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Controlled shrinkage? Possible? on: January 05, 2005 04:49:50 PM
After finishing "Floss" tonight, a Rowan tube top sort of garment, I see that its too loose. I'm really disappointed because I was looking forward to this being finished, and I spent so much money on the yarn...I wonder if there is a way to shrink it a bit. I wouldn't want to felt it, and I don't want frog and redo the whole thing (there's embroidery and the whole works   Embarrassed ) Any suggestions?
Thanks guys,
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Rowan "Floss" pattern-wording on: December 31, 2004 12:17:50 PM
Hey  Smiley
I'm wondering if I'm just reading this wrong:

"increase 1 stitch at each end of 8th and following 6th row."
The thing is, there is no "number of rows" , so should I just assume I work 8 rows then start over to do another 8 rows, and increase again when I get to the 6th? Or is it just one set of 8 rows and I increase at the 6th then the 8th? I would think in that case the pattern would say "6th then 8th", not "8th then 6th".
I know its difficult to answer this without seeing the pattern, and with the One Hour Hat episode in mind, I'm trying to be extra careful about copywrite issues. Thanks for any help  Smiley
