I love how cozy it looks.  It is very welcoming; you should leave it as is.

Who doesn't like sequins?  Not me!

I made some sparkly ornaments and I can't decide if I should just keep them for myself or make them for family and friends.  Do you think they could have a wide appeal or are they too cheesy?

4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Baby's first tattoo with stars on: July 23, 2006 05:52:27 PM
It only took about 1.5 weeks.  I think that finishing was the hardest part. (Seaming up the arms and finishing the neck band.)  The star was created by using the contrasting color and stiching over the regular knitting stiches.  (Not the instarta method.)  It was actually kind of fun to do the star!

Here is the baby sweater I made for my new baby cousin.  (Due in January so he/she will need lot of cozy warm clothing!)  It's my first attempt at a sweater of any kind, so it's a it rough around the edges but a good learning experience.  I hope it gets lots of wear.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / how exactly do you knit a blanket on: July 20, 2006 08:55:59 PM
I've been thinking about knitting a blanket lately.  My only question is, how do you knit a blanket?  The needles seem like they would be too short and even if you could squeeze the whole blanket on the needles, they would bend or break under all the weight. 

Are you supposed to knit on circular needles or knit in pieces and seam them together?  I am interested in trying a lace blanket and perhaps a cable adult size blanket.

I'm getting hitched May 27, 2007.  I don't have many craft plans yet but I want to join in!

My "Save the Date" Cards are in the process of being made, but they aren't fancy at all.  Just plain old ink-jet printer and cardstock with a cool retro image.

I've been leaning toward orange and blue as wedding colors lately and now I am convined, they look so cool!  It's really nice and very inspirational.  Thanks for posting.

My mom can crochet, but she doesn't do it often.  I've never been interested in crocheting but I have wanted to knit ever since I was 6 years old and saw it for the first time.  I was fascinated by it, much more so that crocheting.

I tought myself to knit when I was 18 by looking at the illustrations in a book.  An older lady friend helped me to brush up the basic skills but other than that I am pretty much self-taught. 

I'm 22 now and I have knitted all through college.  I knit on the bus, in the cafeteria, in the food court, at the library, in the Union.  Most people thought it was cool, or they were impressed.  A lot of friends tried to learn, but I am not a good teacher so I don't think too many are as gung-ho as I am.  I have gotten the grandma comments but I think it's more because I don't ever go out.  I can't help it, if I'm working on a project, it's all I can think about!  I want to get home so I can work on it!

My fiance tried to learn how to knit, and he was doing a good job but he became bored after knitting about 5 rows.
