22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What the..felt?! on: January 29, 2005 08:28:41 AM
I'm currently working on a pair of 50/50 wool/acrylic socks for my friends birthday. Saddly, their coming out bigfoot size, he's got big feet, but not THAT big. So, knitted up a swatch and tried to felt it. The problem is, it came out BIGGER after felting it than it was before! Are my socks doomed to be a sci-fi disaster? Help please!
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Men's Ski Socks on: January 24, 2005 06:44:17 AM
Ok, I decided to tackle a pair of wooly socks. Their going to be a birthday gift for my mucho mucho amazing friend I'm living with. He's a big cross country skier. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on patterns for men's socks? That would work well in ski boots? Thanks!
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Felted Kiddy Mittens on: January 24, 2005 06:24:12 AM
My friend has this great purse made out of fun fur and 100% wool. It's felted so it's really heavy. Her two year old nephew, is in love with the "Aminal Purse" and I wanted to make him some little doggy gloves, loosly baised around the SnB Nation Croc mittens. I want to felt them though, so should I make the adult size or the large children's size, to felt down to fit a toddlers hands? Thanks so much! I can't wait to get started on them!
25  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / HELP - SnB Razor's Edge Poncho on: January 01, 2005 09:07:22 PM
I'm currently working on the Razor's Edge Poncho from SnB Nation. For some reason my eyelets in the lace pattern are not lining up. Oh, and could someone please clarify the last 7 stitches in the lace pattern, because it looks to me like you should be working with 8 or 9, not seven, I always come up a few short.
I hope that makes sense. Thank you!

28  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / gift in 3 days! eeeek! on: December 14, 2004 10:03:17 AM
I dropped off my boyfriend's christmas present over the weekend, because he's leaving soon for Atlanta for Christmas, and the last time I get to see him is at my birthday bash, but I didn't want to give it to him there. So, now all my other posse have decided to exchange christmas gifts at my party (groan) and he'll be the only one without something. I'm now looking for a three day project that I can give to my gorgy German boyfriend. Anything will do at this point. The cheaper (and sentimental) the better! Thanks again! You guys are great!
29  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Winter Woolies Swap on: December 09, 2004 09:13:25 AM
As a knitter, I've been knitting non stop since October to his production quotas for Christmas  Smiley
However, I have nothing for me, I actually feel slightly guilty knitting for myself.
SO, how about a winter woolies exchange? Scarves or mittens. Knitted or croched. After Christmas.
Sound like fun anyone?
30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Anyone seen Grandma's crochet hook? on: December 02, 2004 04:56:09 PM
This is actually my dad's story not mine. My great grandmother was quite a crocheter, millions of afagans. When my dad was in middle school she was staying with them for the holidays and lost a crochet hook. Well, my dad being the bright little kid he was, found it and ran it into the living room to Grandma. Where he tripped over the footstool and the crochet hook went strait through his hand, by his thumb and got hooked on a tendon. When they got to the E.R., because it was a crochet hook and the hook was stuck on the tendon, and because it was the 1960's and medical technology was crap, the doctor pushed it strait through his hand to get it out!
So, now my dad is always looking out for my knitting needles. Tongue
