That's gorgeous. Congratulations on your marriage!

I'm in, and I'm Dame Emma. So far I've only put my books and needles in. I'm afraid to add my stash...

Got my yarn! I am going to take a crack at this in Rowan Yorkshire Tweed. Stay tuned for progress pics.

What do you all think of Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Chunky for this? I found a great price on it, but the "official gauge" is 12 st on size 11s.
Think I could get gauge on 10.5s? 10s? or would my garment be bulletproof?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Slipping stitches for a neat edge? How does this work? on: September 25, 2007 04:04:09 PM
I have a stole pattern from Sivia Harding, and she says to slip the first stitch with the yarn in front--that gives a very nice edge if you don't have to pick up or seam.

I've blocked hats on a bowl, or stuffed them full of plastic bags.

Mason-Dixon Knitting has a bathmat (google Absorba the Great) made with multi-stranded Sugar 'n' Creme. You could just do a smaller version of that, maybe. Essentially, it's a big log-cabin mat--all garter, super easy.

Aww--thanks y'all. Necessity was the mother of invention. The vet was closed, and we didn't have a plastic cone, and I have to say that this seems MUCH better. The one other time she had to have a cone, it was basically her all-day, every day project to get it off. Just constant furniture rubbing and head smashing.

JeepChick--She's a pitbull with a very square face. But she's a bit of a mystery special. Who knows, maybe there's a boxer in there somewhere.

So, the girlie had to have some surgery, and she's Franken-dog.
She is missing a bit of her ear, and has a big scar down her inner thigh--that she was licking compulsively.
Solution: Old foam pillow + scrap fabric=soft dog "cone".

She didn't like it at first:

But eventually she gave up and took a nap:

So far, it's stayed on all last night, and all day today.

Thanks for the replys, y'all. I'm going to go for it.
I have 1000m of Fleece Artist Blue Faced Leciester 2-ply, which might be a little thin, but meh, if it's drapey and see through, that will be ok.
If I have to, I'll do a solid colour button band.
