1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Mystery yardage - Anyone heard of this yarn? on: January 23, 2007 02:38:10 PM
I received three skeins of "Laines Jacques Fonty" 100% wool yarn this Christmas. I don't want to use them until I know how much there is (100g hanks).

I think it's a DK weight, but how do I confirm? I googled both Jacques Fonty and Laines Jacques Fonty and didn't get any useful information.

Do any of you out there know what I'm talking about? Have had experiences with this yarn? Can tell me what yardage to expect from 100g of wool probably DK weight?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first Colourwork, first hat, first working in the round... on: December 24, 2006 01:03:20 AM
Hey guys, thought I'd teach myself a bunch of new skills with one project (Knitty's centre square hat - the pattern on the front of the latest issue).

So I learnt fair isle, continental knitting, knitting in the round and ssk.


Here are some pictures.

This one shows the overall shape.

And this next one shows the colourwork close up.

The modifications I made were that instead of using two strands of worsted held together, I used a single strand of Garnstudio's Eskimo line. (The hat used two balls, in the end I had about 2 yards left of each colour). I didn't do the crown decreases until there were 8 stitches left before drawing the yarn through - I drew the yarn through the remaining stitches when there were 32 stitches left (hence the bunchier top than the one you see).

Anyways, thanks for looking. Any and all comments appreciated.

4  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Please Help, Yardages on: June 19, 2006 08:06:27 AM
Hey guys:

I'm on vacation and about to hit up a yarn warehouse, but sure as things are, I didn't pack my copy of HH. I would really appreciate it if you guys could look up the yardages of the patterns below and reply here or PM me. I am interested in:

Short N Sweet (all sizes)
Go for Baroque (could you list the measurements that correspond to the sizes and the yardage?)

Thanks guys. I really appreciate you guys helping out a scatterbrained fellow craftster. Smiley
5  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / I'll be in Melbourne for a week and I need help! on: May 26, 2006 11:06:20 AM
Hey guys

I'm going to be travelling to Melbourne from 20-27th of June. I need alot of help. I've been looking at travel websites wanting to book a hotel/motel (since I'm staying 7 nights I need it to be cheap too!) and I just don't know where I want to stay (in terms of accessibility).

I'm given options such as St. Kilda, South Yarra, Melbourne E, Melbourne W, Melbourne CBD....and all I want is a place where I can commute comfortably around and participate in a few day tours. I will also need to drop into the University of Melbourne (main campus and the school on Victoria Parade in East Melbourne).

I guess you can tell that I need help. Please reply here or PM me if you are willing to correspond with me. Much thanks.
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / I can't knit but I can crochet (and vice versa!) swap? on: November 22, 2005 09:23:52 AM
I can crochet quite a number of things, but I can't knit anything but scarves and I'm sure there's alot of knitters that feel that way about crocheting. But then once in a while you encouter a knit/crochet item that you MUST have, but you can't make.

I say we pair up knitters and crocheters and let them list wishes for knit/crochet projects (none too big!) and SWAP!

P.S. I don't actually know how to organize a swap so I would love either someone to help me out, or someone else to orgniaze this outright. Pretty please?
