21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Huge tank top and super-cool fabric become skirt!! on: July 31, 2005 05:08:56 AM
I found a really cool tank top in a thrift store but to my great horror it was way too big. I just couldn't take my eyes off it and bought it anyway. The fabric I bought a few months ago when I fell in love with it in the exact same thrift store.
So here's what I started with:

And here is what I ended up with:

The pattern I found in one of my grandmother's magazines and I altered it to fit me and to make it look a bit more... up to date.

I couldn't come up with a way to turn the print over without cutting the whole top up, so I let it stay upside down. I think it looks pretty col that way though..
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How do I convert needle sizes? on: June 04, 2005 01:40:09 AM
I have always been using sizes around four, and when I started checking out tutorials here, they were talking about sizes sevens and eights and nines! After a few seconds of total confusion, I realized that American knitting needles must have their very own measurements to confuse us poor Europeans.

Now, I would really like to know how to convert the sizes! I have no idea what to google on so I was sort of hoping that someone here could help me out!

Is there a table of the sizes, or is there some funky equation? What Europeans sizes are US 9?
