1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help! I lost my magazine! on: April 05, 2008 05:37:48 PM
Hi Everyone, I was hoping someone could do me a huge favor.  I just ordered knitscene Fall 2007 http://www.knitscene.com/2007/fall07projects.asp, got it in the mail, bought all the yarn for Breton Girl and promptly lost my magazine!  I desperately want to start on my sweater, so I was hoping that someone could scan the first page of the pattern for Breton Girl for me?  I understand that some people might not feel ok about this, and that's totally fine, but if someone was ok with it, I would appreciate it. 
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Here comes Santa Claus!! Edited to include bonus snowman! on: December 21, 2007 08:40:26 AM
Isnt he great?  I made him from the Jean Greenhowe Christmas pamphlet as seen here http://jeangreenhowe.com/booklets.html out of acrylic. 

And here is the snowman I made from the same pamphlet!

PS. I used Lion's brand Vanna's choice (the only white yarn endorsed by Vanna White Smiley) and Woolease
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / pretty paper flowers on: October 14, 2007 07:16:04 PM
Since the kawasaki rose is way way too hard for me (I think i might be a little slow when it comes to paper folding) I decided to make 3d flowers for my vases another way.  By glueing two together. 

I used http://www.oriland.com/studio/diagram.asp?ID=Jasmine to make each flower, then i glued two together and popped them on a stick, and voila instant decoration!

now if I could just figure out that stupid rose!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Pretty pretty print of the wave on: October 13, 2007 07:38:35 AM
My office is really cold, so I thought i'd make a nice thick wrap to keep myself toasty.

I love this lace pattern, it's so pretty.  Especially in the Andean Alpaca regal I used, it's so nice and springy for the upcoming long winter. 

I think I'm in love with it...
5  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Frosted Birthday Glasses on: August 12, 2007 12:18:36 AM
These were for my roommate's birthday, they spell her name, Soley.  I used the tutorial from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17742.msg3393;topicseen#msg3393.  She seemed to really like them, and it was super easy!

Here is the set, it was really hard to photograph, because they had clear bits on both sides.

and my favorite letter, the "o"

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / I need help finding something! Waldorf dolls martha stewart style on: August 05, 2007 08:02:15 AM
Less than a year ago, Martha Stewart had this tutorial on how to make these dolls that were super cute, and Whipup.net featured the tutorial.
the link from whipup is here http://whipup.net/2007/01/29/tutorial-easy-dolls/

I had been planning on making these, but put it off, and now it's not on the martha stewart site anymore!  Did anyone save the tutorial/does anyone know of something similar?

Thanks a ton in advance!!!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Harry potter Wrist cuffs!!! (updated with pattern) on: August 02, 2007 03:38:50 PM
Here are my awesomely adorable wristcuffs that i threw together for the grand finale of the Harry potter book parties!

They're made from crappy redheart, but my friends and I loved them anyway, and wore ours the whole time we were reading the books haha.  

There was no real pattern, i just sort of casted on, and went for it.  

Pattern for spiral:
yarn: worsted
Needle size7 dpns
cast on as many stitches as is necessary to fit around wrist, there isn't much stretch, so it should be just big enough to fit over your wrist.  I cast on 30, make sure it is divisible by 6 and it was a little tight.  

Knit one row MC
begin color pattern in stockinette, carrying the other yarn behind m=main color, c=contrasting color

continue on until long enough for your tastes, mine are 3 inches long, cast off using main color.  

Thanks for the compliments, if you have any questions, let me know!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Garter stitch dogsweater from summer IK07 on: May 22, 2007 09:05:59 AM
Yolanda loves her new sweater!  I didn't have her around me when I knit it, so i had to guess, and it fits perfectly!

the hole for her halter even looks great!

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Candle flame question! on: April 23, 2007 06:27:39 PM
I really love this pattern http://web.archive.org/web/20020624070248/www.balart.com/CANDLE.HTM, but i don't like that it's a triangle.  I tried just knitting this section from the star to the end where it says repeat from,

Row 21: (K, YO, K), *P2, K4, (Sl 2-k1-p2sso), K4, P2, (K, YO, K) repeat from * to end
Row 22: P3, *K2, P9, K2, P3 repeat from *
Row 23: K1, (K, YO, K), K1, *P2, K3, (Sl 2-k1-p2sso), K3, P2, K1, (K, YO, K), K1 repeat from *
Row 24: P5, *K2, P7, K2, P5 repeat from *
Row 25: K2, (K, YO, K), K2, *P2, K2, (Sl 2-k1-p2sso), K2, P2, K2, (K, YO, K), K2 repeat from *
Row 26: P7, *K2, P5, K2, P7 repeat from *
Row 27: K3, (K, YO, K), K3, *P2, K1, (Sl 2-k1-p2sso), K1, P2, K3, (K, YO, K), K3 repeat from *
Row 28: P9, *K2, P3, K2, P9 repeat from *
Row 29: *K4, (K, YO, K), K4, P2, (Sl 2-k1-p2sso), P2 repeat from *, end with CO 3 sts
Row 30: *P1, K2, P11, K2 repeat from *, end with CO 3 sts after last P11

 which i thought was the repeat, but it didn't look right when i knit it twice across and twice through. 

Does anyone know how i would go about knitting this in a rectangle?
