I think its a great idea, but would work better if the colours matched more closely.

I have the same problem with my jeans, I generally patch them once, then wear through that, then decide its time for new ones Smiley

6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: I bet this is a first timer... on: February 15, 2006 03:04:08 PM
... just dousing it with bleach. ...

AFAIK, bleach + organic material = nasty chemical reaction.

But I honestly have no idea what one would do with a cow skull.

I do want to see it when you're done though Smiley

cast on 2
knit across
increase 1 every second row (ie, k1, kfb, k1, turn)
knit the odd rows (no incs)

every 4 rows (so, row 1, k all, row 2, k, kfb, k to end, row 3 k all, row 4 k kbf, k to end) add the dropped stitches (k, *2yo, k) -- continue in this pattern until it is as long as you want it to be (and half the length)

decrease rows are exactly the same, only with k2togs instead of kfbs

I left a 6 stitch border all the way around, so the first 13 rows (and last 13) have no drops

original pattern is here : http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/free_patterns/scarves.php (Beginner. Elongated Stitch Scarf.)

Thank you! I used 11's and really loose stitches, even on those.

My first project was the drop-stitch scarf on knittinghelp.com, and the pattern came together really quickly and easily for me.  I've been thinking about a shawl, since my office is bloody freezing, and eventually decided that I could adapt the pattern into shawl-form by adding increases and decreases!

So, here it is, my first shawl :

I knit my boyfriend slippers, and he never wore them. (they don't quite fit, so, ok..)

So, here's my theory : They don't appreciate it as much as you (the girl) think they should. This leads to tension, but you'd never say "You don't like my sweater as much as I think you should!" so random things set you off more.. Boy senses this, and goes on the defensive. Breakup imminent.

I did it myself, only I said "You don't appreciate my slippers as much as you should, jackass!" and he said "They don't fit. Plus, there are funny holes in them. I like my slippers with soles and felt and warmness, etc. etc." End of fight, end of curse.
