1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quilting Computer Program on: May 23, 2006 07:15:03 PM
I'm a first time quilter, long time craftster looking for some help. I'm trying to make a quilt for a full size bed (yes, ambitious for the first time project) and it's getting a little out of hand. So, I was wondering if anyone can recommend a quilting program that I could use to design it.

I searched the board and someone recommended Electric Quilt, alas, I am but a poor undergrad student without $60 to spend on a computer program.

Even if you don't use a program, I would appreciate any quilters tips for drawing out my design by hand. Thanks a lot!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: All About Felting on: December 27, 2005 07:34:40 AM
I went through all 7 pages of this thread to make sure my question wasn't addressed, but it's kinda early, so forgive me if I missed it.

I felted my fuzzy slippers (knitty) last night as my first felting project and they're finally PRETTY dry but they smell like wet cat!

Any tips?
3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Total newbie question about dpn.... on: March 08, 2005 05:13:17 PM
Ahhh... I'm so confused  Huh Huh

I'm stuck on the third step of the Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers, but that doesn't really matter because most knitters should be able to help me out with this.

So it says to cast on, and divide stitches among 3 dpn with 11 st, 10 st, and 11 st. Then it says "Join and beg and ending with k1, work in 2x2 rib until piece measures 1.5" from beg."

I don't understand the meaning of the word "Join" here. Why do I have to divide the stitches just to join them together again? Also, how do I end with k1 on a 2x2 rib with 32 sts total? I'm so lost....

Thanks so much to anyone who helps out this poor little beginner Smiley

WHOA! This is by far my new favorite way to knit!!! You are my heroine of the week  Cheesy Thanks so much. The pictures are GREAT!

I have a question: how much yard does ths method use up? Is it about the same amount as knitting regularly? I know the stockinette tubing method uses twice as much yarn...

My, those are some EXPENSIVE clothes pins! My cousin is getting married next month and she was looking at name ...holders. You know, those little card holders that tell you where to sit. Anyways, yeah, we went to iParty and they're like $3 for one, so she didn't get them.

It never occured to me that it could be made so easily. Well of course, those were a little fancier with little metal clips, but oh well. I can make mine cool in a differnet way. So yeah, awesome idea. It'll be my wedding gift to her  Wink Thanks for sharing it!!!

I'm guilty of never putting the new roll into the dispenser.  Cheesy I love this idea! Very ReadyMade-esque.

I've spilled nail polish before (shaking bottle without the top screwed on tightly = huge mess). I scrubbed it out with nail polish remover and a LOTTT of elbow grease. Good luck!
