Wow!  Look at that drape!  I am in absolute love.  I want to make one but was worried about the bulk around my shoulders- what a great solution!

Very nice!  I really want to make this, and you've inspired me to have at it.

I'm working on the waistcoat right now and feel like putting my eyes out with my own needles.  Oh my GOD.  Most confusing thing ever.  I'm to the bodice and before I go any further, I am making my own chart because it's just going to get more confusing. 

It'll be cute, though.  I hope.

Hi everyone!  I would love to have a penpal or two and so here I am.

My name is Guin, (short for Guinevere) and I am from Indiana.  Quite unfortunately.  Land of corn and soy.  Put 'em together, that makes sorn.  I am 23 and in my last semester of college.  I've had three different majors, but am finally getting out in May.  Woo hoo!

I am a comics writer/illustrator, and most of my time is taken up by working in the studio.  I have a book coming out in December called "SCARS", and it's gonna be great.  I hope.  I love to knit and sew, as well.  Anything crafty is right up my alley, really.  I'm an avid reader, and usually have six or seven books going at a time.  I love to talk about books and stories in general, as well as trading them.  I like to learn about different parts of the world, particularly the state of women in different cultures.  I'm a sucker for an ethnography.  I don't watch a lot of tv, but am a total geek for the new Battlestar Galactica, and admittedly, the Gilmore Girls are my guilty pleasure.  I love bad movies and tacky things- If I don't love them, who will?

I'd really love any sort of penpal(s).  Really.  I have a drawerful of stationary just rarin' to go!

You've got a cool step-dad!
Also, red vines plus Mr. Pibb equals crazy delicious.

I love how you did your buttons!  I'm making Mariah too, and I was dreading finishing it because I don't like zippers in sweaters but didn't have a clue how to finish it otherwise.  Now I do!  A proper kick in the pants.

That is cool- there are a bunch of different charities that do this sort of thing.  And I know some knitting groups do it as well, just on their own to donate to a charity. 
I think just asking people to use what they have to make the squares is a good idea.  I make a couple this weekend while we were driving to kentucky, and I just used some leftover Cascade 220 I had in my stash.  I'm glad to get rid of these little balls left over from a ton of different projects.

Maybe.  I think that obviously animal fibers will provide the most warmth, but some people don't do the whole wool thing.  The same weight thing would probably be a good idea- like, worsted weight would be the way to go, more than likely.  Easy to get access to, easy to knit up relatively quickly.

I don't know, what do you think?
28  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Blankets for Canada KAL on: October 13, 2006 01:27:13 PM

I am very cold today.  The weather is decidedly nasty, and I am only in the Midwest.  So.  I was on the internets today and came across Blankets for Canada (www.blankets4canada.ca) and it really made me want to help out with something.  I don't think I can knit a whole blanket by myself before the weather turns.  There are 48 8x8 squares needed for a blanket. 

It's a huge commitment, a blanket.

An 8x8 square, not so much.

So, I thought why not ask the Craftster community?  If you want to knit an 8x8 square, ANY 8x8 square, patterned, garter, stockinette, whatever, and send them to me, I will put them together with mine and send them to the charity.  Tis almost the season to do something good with your skills. 

Anybody up for this?

Also, blog details for those interested.
