71  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Avast ye craftsters! Thar be a Jolly Roger ahead! on: May 30, 2006 02:26:23 AM
So when I got Happy Hooker days after it came out, I flipped through and found my first project.  I love Pirates and anything of that nature, so I of course picked the Jolly Roger sweater to work on.

I've searched this entire forum and have yet to find anyone else to start a thread about this wonderful project.  I started not long after purchasing my copy, then neglected it due to school.  Now that school is winding down, I'm working on it again, but I won't have it done before I go away for the summer... I'd like to, but I just can't see that happening.

I'm doing some variations on Jolly Roger, it'll be white with a pink skull and cross bones, done in red heart acrylic.. unfortunatley I'm allergic to wool and a poor college student.. a double threat leading me back to my beloved Red Heart.

When I make more progress I plan to post some pictures.  I'm almost done with the front, yay!

Anyone else who has done this project or is currently working on it, please feel free to post your pictures as well!

I simply love this scarf. Have you had any other ideas involving Miyazaki Characters? you could do a Miyazaki scarf series.. like a red one with the Radish Spirit, or a purple one with No Face.  Now my quedtion is, how did you add the felt characters on?  By simply sewing?  This is a wonderful idea I may try out myself when I my more time...  But yes, once again wonderful idea and wonderful job.  I give you major kudos!
73  Florida / Florida: Central / Disney area craft stores on: July 18, 2005 03:11:07 AM
I will be moving to Orlando for the Walt Disney World College program in a month.  I was hoping to find some craft stores close to the resort area because I won't have a car, so I'll either be using to company bus or riding with roomies to the craft store.  I just don't want to make any one go out of their way, but I will be suffering from yarn withdrawls... I just know it. thanks a bunch!

74  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Kyoto pattern on: July 16, 2005 02:40:39 AM
Has anyone ever tried the Kyoto pattern from knitty.com ?  I was just wondering how many other people have tried it. I'm doing mine in peach with the sash part in a bright blue.   And if anyone is wondering, here's the link:  http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTkyoto.html
75  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: To Dye For sweater on: May 31, 2005 09:24:00 PM
Wow, this is a fast going sweater. I've already finished the back and now I'm doing the front, I would have probably finished it by now, but I distract myself with all my other yarns and all the other patterns I have.  I just started the cell phone cozy from SnB on Friday, and I'm almost finished with it.  After that I'll get bacl to my sweater, I love the yarn I'm using, it's Caron Brights in LimeLight.  It's so soft and bright! Grin I can't wait to get all these projects of mine done,  I've only been knitting for about 2 to 2.5 weeks.  When I finish it I'll post pics.
76  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / To dye for on: May 21, 2005 01:16:38 AM
I just taught myself how to knit last night with SnB.  I've already decided that I'm going to try To Dye For later on when I have a hang of things, make it my first big project.  I was just wondering if anyone else had tried this pattern.  I'm not going to dye the yarn though, I found the perfect lime green yarn that's just oh so soft.  The thing is, the yarn is acrylic... I hope that will be ok to use.  Has anyone used a non animal fiber yarn on this sweater?  I can't use wool or anything in that family because I'm allergic and my hands puff up red and swell if I handle wool for more than a few minuets at a time.  And that sucks, because I know there arejust some wonderful wool yarns out there.. I find Noro to be beautiful.   

Any suggestions?  Do you think the acrylic will be ok?  I'm open for anything, and please let me know any alteration made on the pattern, I kind of want mine to be less airy.

So thank you all for your help.  I know I'm just beginning, but this sweater is my motivation to practice and get better.  Thank you!

77  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Japanese sweater patterns on: May 18, 2005 10:48:23 PM

This is a web site I found that had some very beautiful sweaters for both crocheters and knitters.  The problem is, these come from a magazine in Japan and the pictures poste have no patterns with them.  The magazine is called Watashi no teami fuku and this particular issue is from September 2004. if anyone may be  able to find patterns or these magazines, please let me know!

This is the pullover I would love to make.  So if anyone has any suggestions on how to make this, that would be wonderful!

Thank you all so much!
