1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Dog Bandana that slides onto collar on: June 07, 2010 02:44:17 PM
 Hey! I got a new puppy a few weeks ago and while i'm not the kind of person to go dressing up their dog i cant resist a bandana!

Here is Grizz the Border Terrier puppy wearing his new bandana, yes he does look a little bewildered but honestly he likes it!

There is a tutorial on my blog http://eefweef.wordpress.com/

i hope you like it  Cheesy
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / summery sweater/cardigan (is there such a thing?!) ideas for a 5 yr old girl? on: May 29, 2007 01:38:10 AM
Hey Cheesy,

I want to knit a sweater or cardigan for my little cousin, who will be 5 in july. i bought yarn to knit her a sweater for her birthday LAST YEAR! but it never got beyond a few inches. the sweater i was going to knit her was kinda babyish and in the last year she has turned into a real girly girl and loves all pink and fluffy. the problem is i have 5 balls of navy and 2 balls of red dk merino wool. its ok if i dont use the red in the garment, and it would be ok if i bought a few extra balls in different colours or something, but i cant really afford to go buy a whole lot more yarn.

although i would consider myself a good intermediate knitter, the only thing i have ever knit that had to actually fit someone was a hat, so something that the sizing was forgiving would be great. i love this pattern for a pinwheel sweater http://elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=138024 but it uses a different gauge yarn and im crap at adapting patterns for different gauges.

I have already attempted Reid from knitty, which would be gorgeous,  but i struggled with the lace pattern and sizing, so i've ripped out what i did, so my yarn and needles are waiting here to start something else.

any suggestions? Huh

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with Knittys Fuzzyfeet on: April 18, 2006 03:36:26 AM
hiya, im knitting knittys fuzzyfeet and im having trouble at the first hurdle! Huh im a bit confused about this bit:

[on 22 stitches]

Knit 11 sts past the marker, then turn and work back over the stitches you've just worked [ignoring the other 22 stitches on your needle, which will be held to become the instep] and

Heel Row 1: sl 1, p 21, turn
Heel Row 2: s1 1, k 21, turn

the bit i'm confused with is what happens after you knit 11 sts past the marker, i turn back and purl them, ok, and then it says "ignoring the other 22 sts", but there are 44 sts in all, 44 minus 11 is 33, so is the 22 a typo?

it then says to slip 1, purl 21, turn. is this the 22 sts that i am meant to be ignoring?

this is my first sock project, sorry if it all sounds a bit stupid and amateur!

i'm knitting it on dpn's, but i dont think it should make it much more difficult, i know a lot of people did in the fuzzyfeed KAL.

i'd really love some advice on the matter, thanks! Cheesy
