21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: August 22, 2006 03:21:13 PM

I have a scar on my arm from sanding. Well, it's not quite that simple. I was turning a spindle whorl and I was sanding it, and my arm ran into the tailstock of the lathe (it was a live center, meaning it was TURNING). I yanked my arm away, but some of my skin already came off. Sad

If you can't work out something with the seller, I'd leave at least neutral feedback because she didn't contact you, and didn't send the package quickly. We had one similar issue, where because our domain was in limbo, we changed contact email addresses, but we worked with our customer (and included some 'bonus' stuff for the inconvenience).

christy_cooper - loving the spindles - could you make them with a notch as well? - i know my secret pal is after I think its a bottom whorl with a notch. I'm gonna pass your etsy shop link to her, cos I know she collects them Smiley They're beautiful!

I can make a bottom whorl with a notch; just drop me a note here or on etsy and let me know. Smiley

I've actually had really good feedback from customers on my spindles... and after taking one with me to my knit group's spin-in, well... let's just say I ran out of room to draft before I ran out of spin. Cheesy I was rather pleasantly surprised.

The only thing selling out of my etsy shop have been my spindles. I can't keep them in stock.

I've been getting good feedback on them, though! Smiley
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question about a pattern on: January 09, 2006 04:01:59 PM
I'd say it's tubes of stockinette -- rapid increases after the ribbing, and rapid decreases as you get to the elbow ribbing. Not that 3-d modellers have to make things close to 'reality'. Cheesy

I'd make them reversible, if possible, so that you can wear them either way. How I'd do it would be average the below-elbow and wrist measurements, and knit a ribbing that's not too tight for the elbow, but not too loose for the wrist. Do an increase in maybe every knit stitch of the ribbing, and then mirror those increases for the decreases. ie, if you've got a k2p2 rib, increase in the knits, and say, k2tog twice, k 2 for the row leading to your ribbing.

Just kinda thinking "out loud" as it were. Smiley

I bought my Boye set this weekend at Michael's with a Joann's 50% off coupon! Cheesy

I have a friend who has both, and I just don't like the feel of the denises.
Then again, I don't like Addi's either, so I'm one of the weirdo knitters. Wink

Most spools have notches on only the top. Try putting your spool on the other way, and you won't get snagged. Smiley

39's not actually up yet (if you change that number to 39, you get a blank page with the sidebars on it), and the link on the site leads to 33 (although by changing the last number you can get each issue up to #38).
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: New Adriafil is up! on: August 14, 2005 06:46:15 PM

just replace the number at the end with the issue number. thank goodness for reverse engineering. Smiley
30  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: under the hoodie pocket help on: August 08, 2005 02:14:50 PM
Work the rows stockinette. Do the border pattern on the first 5 stitches (kpkpk iirc), and knit (on RS, purl on WS) to the last 5 stitches, and work them in the border pattern.

Ignore the other instructions until you've gotten to them. You need to work these rows first before you do any decrease rows so that the pocket turns out right.
