1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitted oval... thing on: November 05, 2007 09:19:05 PM
Hi everyone!
My friend's birthday is coming up and she really likes eggs (not cooked eggs, just like the egg shape) so I wanted to knit her a stuffed egg.

Please let me know if you have a pattern for this, it's basically just an oval that is wider on one end. I want this to be a really squishy egg and about a foot long (maybe smaller). Thank you in advance!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / razor cami help on: January 27, 2007 11:50:12 PM

i've been knitting the razor cami from ohmystars (search razor cami on google i think) and it's supposed to be easy. i guess it is, but i keep messing up one thing or another.

after i finish knitting the lace row every time, there is one less stitch. the lace looks fine, and there's enough stitches for the pattern up until the end. i don't know if that's supposed to happen, or what i'm doing wrong. please help!!!

Hi all!

If anyone could direct me to a pattern that is similar to this hat, it would be greatly appreciated. I wasn't quite sure if this was knitting or crocheting.


4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / beautiful pattern... horrible directions on: June 05, 2006 10:25:21 PM
oh gosh!!

Before I was thinking "maybe I'll knit me a nice, easy tank top for summer".
Now I am thinking "when am I going to finish the goddamn thing?"

I am using this pattern:
The smallest size seemed to be too big so I made it one size smaller.

I'm on the front where it says to shape the cups work as follows: work over the first 45 sts. work 4 sts in garter sts, 17 sts in Stst, k3tog, p2, sl1, k2tog, pass slst over, 12 sts in Stst, 4 sts in garter sts.

Since I have a size smaller, I have to work over 42 sts. The problem is, they only give directions for the first row of the cups. How do I know how many stitches to do for the other rows, since I decrease, I obviously can't do the same number of stitches.

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / AGE LIMIT FOR SELLERS PERMIT? on: April 29, 2006 06:56:25 PM
I am 13 years old and was interested in selling some crafts at the local flea market (De Anza) until I found out that I would have to obtain a seller's permit to sell handmade goods.

Does anyone know what the age limit is for seller's permits?
6  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / skully questions on: January 06, 2006 05:49:47 PM
couple of questions about skully (i know everyone is really tired of these... sorry Embarrassed)
this will be my first big project and first sweater
i haven't started yet but am about to, and i read through the pattern:

- im pretty small (well i am in middle school) so i dont know if size small will be too big. any ideas on how reduce the size a little Huh (other than altering the pattern)

- if i use a different yarn like simply soft or something that is a different gauge, will it really matter that much? what is really the best yarn to use, for people who have made this before? (i dont want to use the suggested yarn because wool+mohair=superitchy Undecided)

- for the armhole, it says BO 1 st at beg of next 6 rows. does that means in St st?

- for the neck, is there a specific reason i have to join the 2nd skein of yarn right then, or just because you run out of yarn?

- the pattern says both shoulder sections are worked at the same time with separate skeins, should you just BO 1 st at the beg and end of the next 6 rows? otherwise, if you shape the right armhole first, wont the other end stay a rectangle?
-last of all, the sleeve says: with RS facing and MC, pu and k 43 sts at armhole. so are you just knitting right onto the shoulder, is so how the heck do you use straight needles (or use circular needles?)

i am really, really, really sorry for asking these questions, but i dont want to screw up on this. if there is anything at all anyone can help me with (especially people who have already made it) i would love you foreeeevvver (not as a stalker of course.... Kiss)

p.s. if anyone who has made skully before wants to post a pic with some tips or warnings, that would be awesome!!  Cheesy
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / super simple? on: September 24, 2005 10:28:51 PM
i was just going to dive right into making my first quilt without looking up all these directions and stuff, but i really dont want to sew everything (hand-sewing!) and then find out that not even my dog would use my quilt.  Undecided

i have this idea in my head, but i kind of browsed through this section and im not sure if it will work Huh. i was planning to:

1. collect a bunch of old tshirts and cut same size squares, then hand sew them all together
2. sew the now huge rectangle of squares to a huge solid backing of material
3. leave a space on one side to stuff the batting (or whatever filling stuff) in
4. borrow friends cheapy one stitch machine and go over all the seams from the squares so the backing will have little sections too

so.... is it that simple? like do i have to put interfacing (what the heck would that do anyway?) i think the tshirt material should be strong enough. also could you recommend a good backing material (super soft and cozy) and batting (SQUISHY AND SOFT).... as you can tell, i really like soft stuff

thank you thank you thank you to whoever can help me.  Grin
