21  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Broken Machine on: October 21, 2004 11:05:35 AM
Hi there,  Smiley
I'm Tere, I'm usually hanging out in the knitting section, but I thought I'd cheque out what you guys were up to.
I have a sewing machine that was my grandmother's, and I would love to learn how to use it, however, it isn't working, and since it's built into a table I can't take it anywhere to get it fixed. Does anyone know whether sewing machine repair-people make house calls, and what the average cost for something like this would be?
Thanks so much,
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / My stepdad's b-day is coming up! What to knit? on: October 19, 2004 08:11:32 AM
Does anyone have any suggestions for what I could knit my hardworking stepdad for his birthday? I was thing a hat, but I'm sure there's something more original out there I'm just not thinking of Undecided
Thanks and have a great day.
23  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Sparkle Hat on: September 05, 2004 05:51:01 AM
Has anyone tried the Sparkle Hat? I'm going to give it a shot this weekend. But I think I'm going to use little buttons instead of sequins. Just wondering how it works out.
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / circular needle issue on: September 05, 2004 05:46:52 AM
Hi guys,
I got so excited about knitting this particular hat yesterday that I rushed out during my lunch break and bought some circular needles. But then after looking at the pattern again I realize I got the wrong length (75cm instead of 24inch). I've read that you cant knit something smaller that the lengh of your circulars, is that true? Is there any way to "trim" them or avoid this problem? I don't wanna have to wait till next week when I can go exchange them to knit my hat! Sad
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sewing up seams; problems! on: September 03, 2004 11:14:07 AM
I just finished another Hot Head hat and I had major problems when it came to sewing up the edges. I think the first one I did was bad too, but not so noticeable because it had several colors, which hid flaws better. This one is all pink, and the seam is all over the place. I tried doing the mattress stitch (the hat is k2 p2) but was never really sure where to poke my needle. Does any one have any tips or suggestions? My hat is even shorter at the "foot" of the seam now. Jeese.

Hi there,
I just wanted to mention, if you haven't tried the Hot Head hat and you're looking for a quick and fun project, you should try it. I just finished it and had started yesterday (and I'm a beginner, so its really quick). I changed the colors completely and used different wool since the brand mentioned in the book is unavailable here, and it still worked out ok. I will post a pic soon. Try it!

27  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my first completed projects! WooHoo on: September 01, 2004 03:45:39 PM
Hey there,
I started knitting a couple weeks ago and i thought I'd post what I have so far. One (the verigated pink, brown and orange), is in k1 p1 ribbing, with Bigga yarn--I love that brand name! The other (rust coloured) is in moss/seed stitch, with Red Heart. I can't stop knitting. I'm even hauling out the needles at work when there aren't many customers. Thanks for any feedback!        Tere
P.S. I would like to acknowledge my boyfriend Chris' handiness with the digital camera; thanks Chris. Smiley




28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hi, I'm new! on: August 31, 2004 03:43:46 AM
 Hey there,
I'm Tere, from Halifax, Canada, and quickly becoming addicted to knitting! I'm also getting very poor very fast, as I can't help myself when I see some of the pretty yarns they have out there. By the way, yesterday I bought a small ball of reeeaally pretty orange "Sunshine" yarn from the discount bin at my LYS; I only have this one little ball and its so nice...I wonder if anyone has ideas on what I could make that is quite small. Thanks,  Smiley
