1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Triangle wrap-wearable 2 ways shirt? on: July 10, 2011 10:31:20 AM
my description is horrible- sorry- but it is what it is--- Found this today - http://www.stylearc.com.au/stylearc/index.php and I think it is really do-able without paying $13 for a pattern for cutting two armholes in a triangle... but I am not really great with pattern drafting/the math part and was wondering if anyone could eyeball the dimensions on this???  Thank youuuuuuuuuuu!!!!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / ISO pattern for BASIC toddler sized pullover to do in Patons Cha Cha on: October 15, 2007 07:55:48 PM
so yea, that says it all.  Smiley  I have spent the past hour scouring various websites for a SIMPLE, no frills, round neck, toddler (sz 24mo or 2T) sweater that I could do in a fun floofy yarn.  Cha Cha is on clearance a the local Michaels!  Does anyone have something like this off the top of thier head?? I see raglan calculators, but me doing math to make something... scares me....
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / elephant hat w/ ears for toddler... help! on: October 12, 2007 10:10:14 AM
Ok so all the patterns I seehave these helmet style hats, with the trunk attached.  I can see that lasting about 5 seconds with my daughter.  She won't do hoods, either, but will do a hat.  Does anyone have a pattern online somewhere for a SIMPLE fleece hat for a toddler that I can modify and add ears to?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Another Anthropologie sweater redux, need help pls! on: July 18, 2007 05:10:26 PM
OK, so I was cruising the Anthropoloie site today looking for things to rip off, haha!! Well, I found this: sorry for the screwy URL, I am rushing, here... http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&id=710440&parentid=APP_SWEATERS&pushId=APP_SWEATERS&popId=APP_SWEATERS&sortProperties=%2BmarketingPriority%2C-startDate&navCount=3&navAction=poppush&color=lac
I really like it, at least the silouhette of it... Im not crazy about the sideways stitching on the top section.  I was thinking that the Belle Epoque from Knitty could be modded to suit the idea, but with a heavier guage yarn, like a worsted maybe?  I have NO idea how to adjust a pattern for a different yarn, and would have zero clue how to event start.... OR is there a different pattern somewhere that nips in like that and has just a cute cap sleeve?? Moving to Virgina and I need "real" Fall clothes... Fall here in FL requires.... flipflops and OH NO, LONG pants, haha!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitpicks- CotLin vs Shine? on: June 18, 2007 08:11:17 PM
OK, I am REALLY wanting to make the "Beaded Cami" in the featured knitting projects section and wanted to try some yarn from knitpicks.  I see a cotton linen blend and a cotton modal (whatevertheheck modal is) blend.  Which would lend itself better to this tank?  They are the same price, and I lurrve the sound of a linen blend buuuuuut, I have no prior experience with either to know.  CotLin says something about being good for washcloths...  Undecided  So, experienced knitpicks users... tell me about these yarns! Smiley
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Gauge help pls, I am clueless LOL on: June 14, 2007 10:01:04 AM
OK so gauge hasn't been a big issue for me in the past, because I have always done hats, scarves, felted stuff, etc.  Well, I am going to make a sweater for my dd, and I am having trouble with gauge.  I bought a ginormous spool of really awesome mega bright pink yarn that is supposed to be the correct weight, but I don't seem to get the right stitches per inch when I swatch.  I am doing the accordian sweater from knitty in the toddler girls size- so the gauge is supposed to be 20st and 32 rows = 4x4.  Welllllll... on sz 6 needles, I get less than 4" out of 20st, more like 3.5.  On sz 7, I now have just at 4" with my 20st across, but I am at 16 rows and it is 2.5in long... so I am going to be a whole inch off in length.  What the heck do I do? Tongue   Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh  I am clueless.  Oh, also-- if I have a similar yarn that I want to use as stripes, I should swatch it, too to be certain, right?  What if I want to dye that yarn befor eI use it--- I should swatch AFTER dying, right?  Thanks so much in advance!!!!!!
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / ceramic mugs + non toxic paint + ???= dishwasher safe mug to use?! on: March 29, 2007 01:57:09 PM
I want to put my sweet baby girl's hand print on mugs to give as favors to grandparents for her first birthday party.  This obviously means nontoxic paint... BUT... What can I paint over the nontoxic design with in order to make it dishwasher compatible?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Interweave Knits: Waterlilly Top- too much for a 1st sweater/preg/labor project? on: March 05, 2006 08:55:26 PM
OK, so I am very pregnant (3 weeks til due date) and want to have something fairly easy and distracting to knit for early labor... and wanted to make something for myself that I would be able to wear that might cover any post-baby lumps I might have... I saw the Waterlilly top in Interweave Knits and it looked perfect- BUUUUT sounds complicated.  I think it might be too much for a first sweater/actual garment project.  I have made many a hat, scarf and multiple pairs of fuzzy feet slippers, but no actual shirts.  Anyone made this top yet, and can anyone lead me to something similar that might be simpler?  Thanks!!!!!!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help with dismantling a pattern- how much yarn for just part of Knittys coronet? on: January 06, 2006 12:57:57 PM
I was just looking through the knitty hat patterns and found this one:

I have some yarn that I might want to use, but I don't have enough for a whole hat I know for sure.  I was thinking, the cabled band is knit separately anyway, that might make a cute headband.  How much yarn, ya think would that take?

thanks guys!
10  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Can you dye Kidsilk Haze with Koolaid? on: December 07, 2005 11:39:22 AM
I am going to make the Airy Scarf from Last minute Knitted Gifts for my aunt using this sort of pale oatmenal colored kidsilk, and thought maybe I could use the oher half the ball for a scarf for my cousin, but my cousin would want something brighter- like bright green.  Can you dye kidsilk with Kool Aid?
