Hey chickies!!

I'm organizing Orlando's event and would love to see any local stitchers there! Cheesy

Woo Hoo! Grin

Wish List

Sock Yarn - any kind, I just finished knitting my second pair of socks and I'm officially addicted.

Super Mario Bros. themed stuff - coasters, change purse, little things. Thanks highschoolcrafter!![/color]

Crochet Hook Case - mine are all over the place and need a home.

Double-Pointed Knitting Needles - see sock yarn explanation, I have sz. 6s & 8s and would love to have smaller sizes. Used are A-Okay with me. Thanks girlfriday!

How to Needle-Felt Kit - I'm intrested in learning how to do more with fiber.

Handmade Lipgloss - Vanilla, chocolate, lemon, lime, I'm not a big fan of other fruits.

Amigurumi patterns - to take my crochet to the next level.

Necklaces - long and loopy please, I wear a lot of black and don't wear any yellow gold.

Circular Needle Holder - or organizer, they are getting unruly. Smiley

A surprise!

I'll be turning 27 on June 12th! I'm a stay-at-home Mommy to a great little 3.5-year-old chica and am expecting another girl in mid-July. I live in Florida and am trying not to melt from the crazy summer heat. I like kind of preppy Old Navy-esque stuff. Fav colors include black, pink, turquoise and spring green. I'm not a fan of yellows or oranges as a general rule. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me. Thanks in advance. Smiley

Me! That scarf reminds me of a Barbie "scarf" (I don't think the word poncho was in my vocabulary yet) I knit many many years ago, only your Barbie's is so much prettier than my Barbie's. What yarn did you use? I love the colourway. 

I used Berroco Fresco - mostly because I had one skein from a stash swap my SnB had done and when I went to look for patterns I found out it had been discontinued. I'm not sure of the name of the colorway, it wasn't given to me with a label. Sad It has about the same gauge as the recommended Lion Brand Incredible.

Especially if someone teaches you to knit your own clothes.

I found this pattern (& there are a couple more) on Lion Brand's website and couldn't help but bring my new friend to SnB last night. http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/ki-dollPoncho.html

You can print out the little yarn skein labels and 'idea book', the needles I made out of plastic q-tips (they recommend using japanese toothpicks). My 3yo daughter thinks it's awesome and wants more knit clothes for Barbie. There are a couple other patterns available in the 'Chicks with Sticks' line so we'll see.

Note the bottomost 3 white squares and their slightly off-whitey-ness, they were quite a headache. More about that on my blog.

Don't despair knitting gal...

It helps to understand what K2P2 ribbing is -- basically it's columns of stockinette stitch where one column is showing it's Right Side and the next column is showing it's Wrong Side over and over again.

The first few rows can be tricky, because you can't really see it yet and that'll make you nervous, but here are some tips.

1. You have to have an even number of stitches for K2P2 and it's best if that number is divisible by four (12,16,64,104,etc).
2. Start each row K2, you should end on a P2.

For the ribbing to work, you are knitting your purls from the previous row and purling your knits from the previous row.

You have to concentrate on keeping your tension pretty good as you switch from one stitch to the next or you will end up with holes.

I hope that helps...I feel a little rambly. Smiley

Has anyone else run out of White before they finished their 21 squares?Huh I only got 18 squares and it is beyond frustrating because now I can't find the yarn anywhere.

In happier news, I think I have 6 squares left to do, but I've started piecing the squares together and it's not quite as daunting as I feared. Smiley
