1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: The Purllace Hat on: July 09, 2011 01:38:08 AM
I'm a beginner, and I quickly learned that it's SO EASY to decrease stitches and SO ANNOYING to increase. Especially when you're starting with, like, 4 stitches and going to end up with a large circle.  Sad

But I would love to see the pattern if you wouldn't mind posting it! I'm mostly knitting small hats, but who knows. Smiley

...Oh my god. I clicked this thinking "I wonder how she got/made mood changing stones?"

What I found was even better.  That's an amazing idea! The different metals even make the face features stand apart more.

Wow, I actually made something a lot like this a while ago.  I even used copper, too!  For some reason the copper makes it look different and stand out even more. 

I love these types of necklaces; it makes me wish I had more bags of random mismatched beads to make them with.

I like that in the hematite color! That's one pattern/weave/whatever you want to call it that I've never tried, simply because I was afraid it would look to sloppy. But it fits with the color of the rings.

I agree with what funkyjunkdesigns said, too--I'm only a beginner as well, and it's a lot more fun to work on smaller and simpler weaves first.  I like the box chain and byzantine.

A really, really simple, classic  idea I see a lot in drawings and comics is a skull pendant sewn, strung, or glued onto a piece of black ribbon.  Either use a clasp especially made for ribbon from the craft store, or just let them tie it around their necks as chokers.  Skulls are so in fashion, I'm sure you can find some appropriate pendants anywhere in a retail craft store, or if not on a site like firemountaingems.

He's adorable! I had no idea that sort of pattern was available for free; I haven't seen many octopuses.  Thanks for the hint, I'm going to have to look up the pattern, too. Smiley
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anybody participate in Knit in Public Day?? on: July 08, 2011 11:42:48 PM
I thought every day was knit in public day Wink  Just kidding. 

You mean it isn't?  It is for me!  I've never heard of this day before.

I've knitted in public ever since I started, probably.  It's particularly relaxing long bus rides, and on slow nights at my job (or even the few minutes I have free during busy nights)... and when I'm watching patients to make sure they behave. 

Thanks to this, I'm pretty good at knitting in the dark.  Just not with black yarn... yeah....  Embarrassed

I probably look just as strange knitting on a public bus as you do knitting after running a marathon.  Grin

Woah, that picture with the key in the eye is pretty gruesome.  I love it! Tongue

Before I even opened the topic, I was wondering how you would combat the yarn slipping around the doorknob instead of turning it.  But I see you have a fantastic solution to the problem!  I'm going to have to keep this idea in mind for the future, especially around Halloween.

Very pretty! The knitting pattern looks so delicate, but the final product still looks fluffy and warm.

This makes so much sense, I don't know why I never thought of it before....

Thanks for sharing!  Smiley
