1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my first knit project post on: October 18, 2006 12:44:35 PM
I have been knitting for about two years now and I finally got around to posting some f.o.'s here. These two scarves are nothing super special. They are done in plain garter stitch because I thought the yarn was fancy enough on its own. Smiley

this has beautiful pinks purples and some blue mixed in. My crappy camera didn't do the colors justice. I believe the yarn is N.Y. yarns but I lost the label.

this was for my daughter made from red heart light and lofty in a bubble gum pink (excuse the shoes in the background I didn't feel like photoshopping) lol

Thanks for letting me share!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / cable needle? on: October 11, 2006 08:04:15 AM
I am a fairly advance beginner at knitting, I can make 2 needle mittens, scarves and two needle hats. However, I have never done the cable stitch. Do you have to use a special needle for that? I thought  I heard somewhere that you could use a third knitting needle, but I am probably wrong.  And also, is there a good beginner pattern I could complete fairly easily?
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / ideas? on: October 10, 2006 12:53:17 PM
I need to have a gift for a 15th birthday celebration on Saturday (i just found out I was going today geesh!) it is a big hispanic celebration....forget what it is called.... anyway, I want to make a gift and wondered if anyone had any ideas for a special gift that could be completed in a few days. I was thinking a pretty prayer shawl or something....does anyone know what kind of gifts you give? Basically, I want something a 15 year old will open and not go ewww!

You can make/request anything that falls under the scarf category (neck warmers, cowls, wraps, etc) as long as you or your partner is willing to make it. You can PM each other and discuss it. If you would like to include extra items okay it with your partner first so no one feels disappointed.

Make sure you put "scarf swap2" in the subject line.
I will pair everyone as best as I can by what they want/can make so everyone can hopefully get what they want.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.
