31  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / At last, I finished Prepster on: May 12, 2006 07:30:17 AM
 Cheesy Hooray! I kept putting it to one side because it was annoying me, but today I finally sewed some buttons on!

32  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First sock - pathetically excited *now with added second sock!!!* on: May 02, 2006 01:47:41 AM
When I saw that sock yarn is available with glitter in it, I knew it was a sign.

I've given myself a bit of a shock really..omg, I actually made a sock! (Already started on sock number 2 - can't wait to wear them!  Cheesy)

AND, I've actually started to update my blog! oh. my. god.

Edited to add:

And then there were two!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cheesy

33  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Wool/acrylic mix blocking question with bonus husband as recipiant angst on: April 01, 2006 12:19:39 AM
I have knit a jumper (sweater!!) for my husband ("Jolly Rodger" from Knit 1), and have almost finished sewing it up.  Firstly, it's a 20% wool, 80% acrylic mix, will blocking work on this mix? It's chunky/bulky.

Also, the arms are a bit too long (about 2") and the body is a teensy bit snug (I did a gague square!!!) - could this get sorted by blocking?

or, should I rip it out and start again  Cry
34  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Spring in Winter Hat on: March 21, 2006 12:29:26 PM
Woo! I made this:

(Sorry I'm so bad at photography  Embarrassed)

It's not the yarn from the book... and it looked a LOT less neon in the shop.  Not sure if it'll ever get worn outside due to uber-brightness  Smiley

I also almost finished the matching scarf, before I relised I'd done the whole thing in dc instead of tr  Cry   Damn those US/UK same-but-different crochet terms!!!!!
35  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Cold Shoulder on: March 08, 2006 02:38:59 PM
Wooooo!!! My book arrived at 11 am this morning, and look what happened this afternoon!!:

(It hasn't been steamed yet, I was just sooo excited I had to show you!!! Embarrassed)

I'm still very much a novice crocheter, and it was brilliant to be able to manage a pretty stitch pattern like this - the instructions are super clear and the schematic made such a difference!

I pretty much want to make everything in this book - I love it!  Cheesy
36  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Alexander McQueen nautical top - my homage! on: February 28, 2006 08:26:31 AM
I saw an Alexander McQueen top in a shop in Manchester and I really liked it. It was on the cover of a magazine last week - I have a photo somewhere, but I can't find it at the mo Roll Eyes .  Anyway, this is my homage:

It's a t shirt recon, really!

What do you think?!

Edit: Here's the picture I was talking about:

37  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / How can I shorten a zip? (is it possible even??) on: February 28, 2006 04:21:38 AM
I have searched but I can't find an answer to this question - although I'm sure I've read somewhere that you can shorten zips - don't know if it was on craftster or elsewhere. 

Anyway, I confidently bought a 6" zip yesterday for a skirt I am making, and this morning I've realised that the pattern calls for a 9" zip.  Angry 

I can't get another for aaaages, but I have a reallly long old zip - can I shorten it for my skirt??

PS my husband bought this new ergonomic keyboard which is all curved and dome shaped and wierd. So sorry if I'm tying badly at the mo.  Embarrassed
38  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knit 1 Magazine in the UK?? on: February 19, 2006 03:17:42 AM
Does anyone know where I can get a copy of Knit 1 magazine in the uk?  I got a copy of the men's issue  (fall '05 issue) from the magazine man in my local market, and I loved it, but he says he can't get hold of any more issues  Cry 
39  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Do daytime knitting groups exist? Specifically in Manchester/Leeds type areas?? on: January 20, 2006 09:06:23 AM
um...so, do they??  Huh
40  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Tips needed for choosing knitting patterns to suit body type on: January 17, 2006 05:20:14 AM
Does anyone have any tips (or any links to tips) on choosing which patterns suit which people? I have tried to knit clothing, but tend to stick to scarf type stuff, because I know i) it'll fit me and ii) it won't make me look fat. 

The (few) items of clothing I have made have been frogged, because they made me look fat.  I don't know if I'm picking the wrong yarns, the wrong patterns, or what.  Sad
