31  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Anthropologie-inspired capelet- By julsey723 on: June 02, 2006 10:49:04 AM
I cast on for a second one last night, this time I am using knitpicks Panachein Mulled Wine which I am just loving to knit with. It is a nice blend and is soft and sproingy. I'm not to crazy about the color it is a little subdued for me, but it is for a gift and the giftee should love the color.

Since she already paid for the yarn, and we are just talking labor, I would go with a flat rate of $30. How long did it take you to make it?
33  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Help for a beginning Vegetarian! on: May 24, 2006 04:18:53 PM
Cook a few meals a week in a cast iron pan, this is how our low meat diet pilgrim ancestors kept their iron levels up. I am not a vegetarian, but I eat a low meat diet and I have never had a problem with low iron which I contribute to eating iron rich veges and cooking in a cast iron pan. Another suggestion is to get some mylicon drops for the first few weeks that you increase your grain and fiber intake because while you are getting used to that you might have some gas buildup issues.

Cheesy I am glad I'm not the only one thinking like this. We could be starting a trend. What yarn are you going to use? I've never done a sweater in fingering weight, so I don't even know how much to order.
35  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Circular Yoke, too retro? on: May 24, 2006 02:07:29 PM
I have a great idea for a sweater featuring a skully fair isle pattern that if I were a braver person, I would design with steeks. But I am not a brave person. Plus I have never even knit an existing tested pattern with steeks, so I don't think that I really have any business designing a sweater using them. So I was thinking how about a circular yoke? Is that a style that is ready to come back? The sweater would be a gift for a friend that lives in Minnesota, and he is nice enough that he would wear it even if it was really unstylish. But I would rather not give a horribly unstylish gift. What do you all think?
36  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: The colour of your knitting in the next seasons? on: May 24, 2006 12:43:28 PM
I am interested in doing something with a little bit of orange or corral for fall because I have a fashionista on my gift list, but finding a shape that is going to be hip enough for her is a real challenge.

For my personal color use, I tend to stick to the blues, greys and purples occasionally punching it up with some red or pink. I bought some blues and greys to make Tubey to give as a gift this fall, but now I am no longer in love with that shape, so I was thinking about using that yarn to make a sweater like this http://www.manos.com.uy/Manos05/ingles/coleccion_v06/col_v06a.htm'. Some other colors I am wanting for gifts for next season are jewel tones. But it seems that no yarn manufacturers are thinking jewel tones.

Totally awesome. Normally nursing tops are SO ugly. You should totally sell this idea to Motherhood Maternity. You could be rich.

Like svea says, you are doing a cable cast on instead of a knit stitch. Cable cast on is a pretty edging that you might want to use in the future. You would do it by casting on 2 stitches your regular way then use your working yarn to make the rest of your cast on stitches. To make that work pull a nice size loop through onto your right hand needle like your #4 picture. Then transfer that loop onto your left hand needle. It makes a scallopy edging.

It probably depends on if she plans to use cloth or disposable diapers, but I would reccomend making a coordinating waterproof lined zipper pouch. If you use a waterproof zipper the bag is also pretty smell proof.Much more essential for cloth diapers, but also very handy for disposables, since eau de baby barf is not a pleasant scent.
