1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Simple Baby Blanket on: March 14, 2009 06:45:29 AM
Thank you so much for the nice comments everyone! This was one of the first times that I didn't follow a pattern for knitting, but just took a stich and went with it, so I was pretty nervous about it. But I'm happy with the turn out, and I hope my cousin will be too!

I just finished a baby blanket for my cousin and thought that I would share it with you all.

Here it is!

Here's a close-up. It's not that great of a picture, but it gives you an idea of the design.

Let me know what you think!  Smiley

What is your favorite famous love letter, lyrics or quote? It doesn't have to be cheesy or lovey-dovey, but just whatever is your favorite and what speaks to you the most!

I'm looking for some inspiration for a Valentine's day card for my boyfriend and also, I am just curious to read what everyone posts! Thanks! Smiley

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / 'Roseanne' Crocheted Afghan on: December 20, 2008 07:33:37 AM
Hey Everyone!

I need some help on a present for my boyfriend. (not for christmas...i'm not that much of a procrastinator! Smiley) He really likes the show 'Roseanne' and while i was watching it the other day, I realized that a great gift for him would be to make the afghan that lays across the couch in the show. (http://popwatch.ew.com/photos/uncategorized/151231__blanket_l.jpg) Now, I'm a knitter, but I have crocheted before. Would this blanket be entirely too hard for an inexperienced crocheter? Also, does anyone know where I would be able to find a pattern to base this blanket off of?

Thanks for any help in advance!!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Historic Knitting Patterns on: November 23, 2008 07:48:02 AM
Hi all!

Does anyone know of any books or websites that focus on historic knitting patterns? Also, maybe resources that give modern translations of older patterns? I am really interested in projects from the past, specifically civil war era patterns, but I am having a hard time finding them. And the ones that I have found (ex. 'The Workwoman's Guide' from 1840), are very confusing to translate into modern knitting terms. (and they have no images of the items.) Thanks for any help!  Grin

Here are some websites that I've found with patterns from the past, if anyone is interested.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Do you have a sock pattern for serious hikers? on: October 12, 2007 07:46:04 AM
Use wool.  I like Shelridge Farms for mens socks.  Its cushy, yet warm and absorbant.  But mainly,  use wool.

Thanks! I figured wool, but I wanted to make sure. Are those your dogs in the picture? They're adorable!!!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Do you have a sock pattern for serious hikers? on: October 12, 2007 06:59:48 AM
My dad and brother are going on a hiking trip and I thought it would be nice to knit them a pair of hiking socks. I asked them and they said they just need something thick, warm and comfortable.

Anyone have a pattern for men's hiking socks?
If not, anyone have suggestions or tips on making sure the sock is nice and thick?
I'm not really sure what type of yarn to use, any suggestions?

Thank you in advance for any help!! Grin
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / I already have the boyfriend gift idea...but need help on: November 27, 2006 07:24:27 PM
So I already know what I want to make for my boyfriend for Christmas, but I need help in actually making it. So here's my idea: He's really into history, majoring in history and such. I want to make him a collage/collection/whatever thing of all the places that have meant something to him. I want to get old postcards/pictures/memorabilia from his hometown, college town, etc. and create some sort of collage of them all. Now...I am not good at scrap booking or anything of the sort, so this is where you guys come in. I need help on how to display this stuff. I originally thought of framing it all, which i still like that idea but I have no idea how i would make it look nice or whatever. Then I thought maybe I should create some sort of book with it all in it and then maybe leave blank pages at the end for him to put more in for the next step of his life...
anyway, if you guys have any ideas of how i could organize this all or pictures of similar projects, I would be greatly appreciative!!
Thank you!!
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Recycling Bin Separaters on: June 14, 2006 05:55:49 AM
Alright, so this may be a silly question, but I would like help with it none the less. So, we have to get our own recycling bins in the town we just moved in to, so we have this large storage bin that we're using from k-mart. Anyway, I want to somehow put in separaters so that i can have a place to put different colors of glass, so that it's easier for the recycling man. Is there anything that i could put in that wouldn't be ruined from rain and would keep sturdy that would solve this problem?
