Starsview, in regards to your university's colours... the Gryffindor scarf is exactly the same colours as a football team over here, so when i wear mine i always get "So you're a Brisbane supporter?"  Drives me crazy, but it is amusing to reply "No, Gryffindor", and see if they get it or not... Wink

Oh my god! You're Australian! *waving*

What about something like this: http://zieak.com/projects/barbie_wreath.htm but with the dildo's of course?

That barbie wreath is hysterical!  Now I know what to do with all the 2nd hand Barbies I've got.

I think the event has come and gone. It was part of the melbourne scarf festival.
If you want to get in touch with stitch and bitch Melbourne, I'd PM the person who posted this.

Lace pattern from Vintage Girls Jumper (thats "Sweater" in Australian) pattern

I found this great lace pattern in a Vintage pattern for a girls top. Unfortunately it has vintage pattern knitting abbreviations like w.r.n. (wool round needle), and wl. fwd. (wool forward).
I've been treating the "wool round needle" as being like a yarn over. And I guess that "wool forward" means put the wool in front, like you do when your purling.

I think the bit where I got confused is in row 3, (which is where I'm up to) it says:
          P1, K.2tog, wl.fwd., K1
why wool forward when its already there when you just purled? and then the K1 after that means you wrap over the needle before you knit like a backwards yarn over, thereby making another stitch? Row 3 has quite a few of these wl.fwd and then Knit things.

So I"m posting the pattern here first of all to share, as others have so generously done, and in the hopes that others will have a go at the pattern and share their "wool round needle" and "wool forward" insights with me.
I tried to balance file size with not too much blurryness which was a project in itself, so I hope I don't ruin anyone's eyesite.
I really love lace knitting but I gotta tell you sometimes those instructions have me tearing my hair out with frustration. Oh and the backpage of this pamphlet with the abbreviation key is missing, though after googling I doubt there would have been more than the 3 word the descriptors which still leave me saying "yes but what does that mean?"!!! Anyway, I'm ranting now.

Here 'tis. (sorry about the different text sizes).

980  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Re: kool aid dying - wool on: August 12, 2005 05:25:55 AM
the reason that kool-aid works and food coloring doesn't is that kool-aid is really acidic.
So if you use food coloring and vinegar, that should work (but it will smell like vinegar instead of like kool-aid, so it will be a *little* bit less fun).
I don't know how much vinegar to use, though. 

There's a thread in the knitting section of crafster all about cool-aid dyeing, and a few pages in theres a section about dyeing wool with food colouring. Smiley
