1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cutting a hole in knitting? on: November 20, 2013 12:04:08 PM
It'll be something like a buttonhole, or look up 'steek'. You'll have to prepare the area first by stitching around it so it doesn't unravel.

STEEK! That's it! Thank you! Forgot it had a name.  Cheesy
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cutting a hole in knitting? on: November 19, 2013 07:28:51 PM
I need to cut a hole in a knit dog sweater, to be able to attach the leash to her halter when it's cold out. It feels like acyrlic, so I can't just slice it and felt the edges.

I used to be a diehard knitter, so I should know how to do this, but I can't remember which of my books it's in and everytime I try to google all I get are instructions on yarn overs.  Sad

Help please? Thanks so much in advance. 
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Lucky Duck :) on: November 04, 2008 08:25:27 PM
This Halloween I went as a Lucky Duck. 

I used felt for the feet, tail, and dress embellishments, with pipe cleaners to straighten and provide support.  I made a necklace with 7 horseshoe charms, and wishbone charm earrings.  This pic was from work - I ditched the white shirt when I went out that night. Smiley















Thanks for looking!  And a parting tip - don't attempt to look for a rabbit's foot the week you need it!  They're not as easy to find as you'd think, which is why there isn't one in my costume. Sad

This Halloween I went as a Lucky Duck.  The dress is from Kohls, the leggings from Wet Seal, the headband from Forever 21, the beak from Target, and the gloves from a costume shop.  All the rest came from Joann's.

7  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 30 ENTRIES / A misunderstanding, a bad pun, a paper bag, one hour, and a pow-wow on: September 05, 2008 07:37:33 PM
So I really have no desire to win the challenge (I couldn't care less if I even make it into the poll), but since a post here inspired my idea I wanted to post what I came up with.  It's bad, no straight lines and only took an hour, but since I love my idea I'm going to make a new one eventually.

I saw phaedra 2's A Tee Pee (toilet paper) Cozy post, and misunderstood and thought it was going to be a TeePee (for TP, get it?).  Since hers had nothing to do with Native Americans, I had to run with the idea. 

And thus, the TP's TeePee: 




Next to the tp for size:




and supplies:



The sticks are bamboo skewers, and I also used markers and hordes of tape and glue.  The yarn is helping keep the skewers from sliding around inside. 

Thanks for looking, I hope it makes someone else smile. Smiley

ETA: I apologize for the poor photo quality and the squishiness of the supply pic, don't know what happened with that one!

awwww, he looks just like my doggie!  I second the request on the pattern, my poor girl keeps running out of her sweaters.  Sad

Love the shell.

As for the four row short problem - would you be able to frog two rows from the one glove, add it to the other, and just be 2 rows short on both gloves?  Don't know if that'll work cause I don't know the specifics of what you're doing, but if it's possible, then it might be easier than trying to match yarn weight and color...
