Thank you both! Smiley 
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I don't know where I saw this pattern on: October 30, 2007 12:57:53 PM
Argh, I suck.  So there was this pattern for a sweater, which I didn't like, so I ignored it.  But now there's a sweater out there at Gap that has the same shape, different cables, so I need that pattern to see if I can modify it to the Gap cables and make it for less than $78.   I thought it was on Lion's website, but no luck on a quick go-through. 

The gap sweater is here:  http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=8998&pid=480405

Any ideas where it was?  It's a relatively new pattern.  Thanks for any help. 
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Star Trek Blanket on: October 22, 2007 10:16:35 AM
um, hi.  I made a Star Trek blanket.  It's still not finished, as I still have to sew a lining on the back to cover up all the loose ends. 

Colors in the second pic are more accurate.  I used about 10 balls Bernat Satin on sz 7's for the blanket and Lion Brand Glitterspun (two gold, one silver) for the logo, which I duplicate stitched because my gauge was totally different for the two yarns.  You can't really tell from the pics, it's stockinette with a 2" seed stitch border.  It ended up being 42" wide x 56ish" long.  If I had to do it over again, I'd switch the silver and the gold so the writing would stand out more.  My initial plan was to have the circle in the middle and a small communicator from each of the series in each corner, but alas, the charts weren't working out so well and by the time I finished the middle circle, I wanted to kill the thing so I decided to quit. 

ETA: fixed the pics.  It took me about 3 months or so....I was unemployed at the time so it didn't take too long Smiley

if you don't have the book, you might want to find someone to lend you or see if your library has Stitch n Bitch Nation.  They talk about how to modify a pattern to fit the gauge you're getting.  It's a bunch of math and I don't have it in front of me otherwise I'd tell you myself...

Am I the only person that the link does not work for? Sad:(

It's not working for me either, and I can't find it off the main page. 
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / scoop neck vest pattern? on: July 08, 2007 10:59:55 AM
I'm wondering if any of you guys know where I can find a pattern for a scoop neck vest.  People on TV have been wearing them recently with button-up shirts, the neckline comes like halfway down the boob.  Mariska Hargitay wore one on SVU in the Philadelphia ep while she was on the couch with her brother, but I can't find a pic.  And I haven't found one in the stores yet that isn't permanently attached to some pretend shirt (though I have to say I've only looked at 2 stores). 

I can modify patterns, so even if it's cabled or intarsia or whatever, I've just never done a vest or a scoop neck anything and I need the basic shape.  I'm having a hard time looking myself due to dial up hell.

Thanks for any help Smiley

The most I've spent on yarn for one sweater was probably $45, from knitpicks.  Then I have a cardigan I knit for about $40.  My very first disaster of a sweater I got Lion Brand Polar Spun off ebay for $15.  Second sweater was simply soft, total about $7 (with joanns coupons), and my latest sweater I used recycled yarn from a 2XL poncho I scored at a rummage sale for $1 (I'm a medium and there's enough yarn left for me to make a tank or short sleeve shirt, so it's really more like 50 cents).

Average cost = $21.60.  I *personally* would never knit a sweater that costs over $50, because I don't like to spend a lot of money on clothes.  The most expensive clothing item I've ever purchased (aside from dresses) was $66.  So for me, spending more money on yarn than I'd ever pay for something pre-made then having to put in all that time to make it hardly seems worth it.  I'm sure it also helps that I have sensitive skin, so wool blends are usually way too scratchy for my taste anyway.    Smiley

A good artist can totally shade things in different hues (shades) not sure which is the correct term - but a friend of mine had a beautiful dragon morphing into a lion done all in just black and then shaded it in.  It's gorgeous, so I know that shades of black/grey are all possible.  Explain in great detail to your artist what you want and I'm sure they can do what you are looking for.  Have fun!  Katie

awesome, thanks!  Smiley

I've got a question.  Are there different shades of black tattoo ink?

I've got what I want drawn up (not scanned, sorry), and I want it outlined in black, but filled in in parts with a lighter (duller?) black.  It's a small zebra lying down, so it's pretty important that the outlining stand out otherwise it'll just look like a glob of lines...I've thought about just doing a thicker outline than the lines inside, but I'd rather not do that if I don't have to.
