1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Ideas for Sackboy Costume on: August 30, 2010 12:10:09 PM

My four year old wants to be sackboy from Little Big Planet for Halloween.  The only tutorial I can find is http://makeasackboy.com/the-full-guide/ and while I think that would work for an adult I believe it would be too heavy for my little guy.  Does anyone have any ideas how I could do this?

I thought I could get a big brown sweatsuit and draw knit stitches on it.  I'm at a loss on how to do the head and have it not too heavy.

Thanks for any help. Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Jess Hutch Bunny Help on: November 27, 2007 10:18:20 AM
I'm working on Jess Hutchison's bunny and I'm stuck on the arms.

I've got 12 st on 3 needles and I need to do round 13 [M1, K6] twice to get 14 st.  My question is about the M1. 

Do I consider the last stitch on the right needle to be the first part of the M1 and pick up the bar in between the two needles before the first stitch on the left needle?

Or do I knit the first on the left and then pick up the bar after that? 

When I do either I don't have enough stitches to do the K6.  Where am I going wrong? 

The M1 is considered the first stitch and the bar stitch right?  Or am I grouping the stitches together in my head when I shouldn't?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lost stitches in ribbing? Help! on: November 12, 2007 03:45:25 PM
Okay,  I'm doing a scarf in k2 p2 ribbing.  Somehow I have lost a knit and a purl stitch.  I thought it was a dropped stitch but I can't find the loop that is unraveling.  I'm a new knitter so I don't think I'm looking at the stitches right. 

Can someone help me?


On the picture I've got my thumb over one of the purls, then a purl next to it, then a knit, and then I had my little slip because the next one was a knit stitch and now it's gone.  I know it was on there but I did something with my needles and it slipped off.  Then a purl must have slipped. Then it starts purling. 

If anyone has any direction they could point me it that would be great.

4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / First FO Go Go Garter Scarf on: November 12, 2007 11:00:22 AM
I recently started learning to knit after my sister gave me her SnB book.  After some trial and error and watching how to videos on-line, I am quite happy with my first FO, the Go-Go Garter Stitch Scarf.  I used Wool-Ease Thick and Quick.


I had a question though, in the book she said that only natural fibers need blocking.  Since this is 80% acrylic and 20% wool, do I need to block it?  Do I need to block scarves at all?  I tried reading up on blocking but I got more confused.  Sad

Anyway, I'm just starting with the ribbed for her pleasure scarf.  It surprised me how slow going it is compared with the Go-Go Garter because of the smaller needles and yarn.

Well, off to knit.  Grin
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Baby Link on: November 12, 2007 10:19:35 AM
For my one year old's first costume I did Link from Legend of Zelda.  Specifically Wind Waker Link.  Here are the pictures.

Baby Link by Ullygecko, on Flickr

The pants and long sleeved shirt were from Zutano.  I made the hat, tunic, and all accessories.  The socks were from the Gap.  The socks were a size larger and slid over his soft shoes.

The triforce has a sound recorder in the green triangle part that I recorded the zelda theme. When you squeezed the triforce the theme would play!

I'm very happy with the results and I think he is very cute as Link.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cable Sweater Dress Pattern? on: November 08, 2007 10:53:11 AM

I'm brand new to knitting and I'm ashamed to admit that I've become addicted to scouring the internet for patterns. Grin

I saw this dress  in one of my sister's catalogs and I wondered if anyone had seen a pattern for something similar. 

Any advice would be great!
