1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Yet another shrug (self designed) on: September 27, 2005 04:25:03 PM
Did you knit the sleeves flat and seam them later? I can't figure out how you did it if it was knit in the round, but I'm not great at deconstructing patterns.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: cat scratching house on: July 27, 2005 04:43:36 PM
I've been looking for a cat tree, something tall that doesn't take up a lot of room, but EVERYTHING you can buy commercially is really ugly. I have found a couple of exceptions if you're interested, but still not what I want:

These are awesome, real logs but they start at $800 for what I would want. No way..We don't have access to that kind of wood so I don't know i

I've asked by boyfriend, who is an interior designer, to try to dream up one he can build. He is particularly opposed to cat furniture because it is so ugly, but my baby needs a place to climb so he doesn't ruin the designer couch.

This is another good option but I'm afraid that since it is merely covered in upholstery fabric that it might lead the cat to thinking that any upholstery fabric is suitable for scratching. Also, it doesn't quite work for climbing like a tree.


Lastly, I would spring for a commercial floor to ceiling basic tree, but besides them being ugly, I'm not wild about them being made of carpet, sisal's much better for cats.

3  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Apricot Jacket from Rebecca 27 on: June 27, 2005 06:31:19 PM
I'm an intermediate knitter, I've done hats, scarves, purses,mittens (on dpns'), some circular ponchos, and am finishing the Perfect Pie Shawl from Weekend Knitting. I have shyed away from sweaters-mostly because I don't have need for them. Sweaters are too bulky for LA weather and I am to bulky for sweaters! That said I love cardigans and blazers and this sweater I just fell in love with. I bought the pattern 9 months ago but haven't even thought about starting it. I've never knit from a pattern chart before, I can get some help from a friend who owns my LYS. I'm just wondering, if you've never done a sweater before, is this setting myself up for tears?

Your patterns are great, a big inspiration and also, really well photographed! I too have been thinking of doing real fingerless gloves, but have only been brave enough to do the ones that are truly fingerless. I'll give yours a try!
