Impressive! I can see how this took a few months...

Great job Smiley

Thanks for the suggestion, Bastet! I'll have to try the shower curtain idea...

Hey crafters,

I know there are lots of good bib ideas on Craftster, but I haven't found the info I need. I'm looking to replicate this bib, or something like it: http://www.shopatron.com/product/part_number=3200-1/476.0.5228.
Cute, but not $7+ cute!

You can see that it's not backed or "middled" with waterproof fabric, but is in fact ALL waterproof fabric, easy to just wipe down. Some crafters talk about washable vinyl, but is that expensive? Gwensmom said that you can use a tablecloth cut up, but it melts and is hard to sew.

Any thoughts? Has anyone tried this?

Thanks, guys! My husband doesn't understand why I hang out on Craftster all day, but it's all about the positive reinforcement. And sharing free patterns! (2 out of 3, at least)

Hey there!

A few FOs here, new (hats) and old (bag). Enjoy!

Irish Hiking Hat, based on IH Scarf and a 96-st cast-on. Donegal Tweed, size 7s. Intended for friend, modeled reluctantly by hubby:

The top's a little wonky but I thought it was pretty good for no guidance.

The HelloYarn top-down bonnet. CiderMoon yarn, Glacier, in the Jingle Bell Rock colorway (doubled) - size 6s. Intended for a little cousin:

My first pom-poms  Smiley

And my favorite, the B4 Bag (bloomoon creations), in Lamb's Pride Bulky. With wooden beads, plastic handles, and a lot of fuzz. Thanks to Katie for felting in her machine!

Premiered at the MD Sheep and Wool fest this past May. Woohoo!

Thanks for looking

I made one of these a while ago, in light blue, for my Dad. Forgetting how very long a scarf can take -- although this one is at least interesting -- I did another, in pink, for a friend.

Size 8s, pink (lotus pink?) Lamb's Pride Worsted. Squooshy and wonderful.

I made another pair! It's a great pattern. Size 4 dpns with the recommended yarn (Glacier). A gift for my MIL this Christmas:

I cannot love this color more. It is gorgeous!

Not sure if you're still around, diamunds, but this is great! One question: is it just a simple basketweave pattern? I think so, but at the same time, the stockinette sections seem to "pop" more than I've seen. I'm going to make my mom a wrap in basketweave and am curiuos what it will look like.

I like it!
39  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: what's your favourite knitting tip or trick? on: August 07, 2007 09:04:18 AM
The binder is a great idea, and one I've finally put into action.

My tip:
When I know I'll need to count rows on something, I leave a long tail when I cast on. (This is not to be confused with the long-tail cast on...though that IS what I use and love!) 

I tie knots -- slip knots or square knots -- in the tail to count the rows as I do them. Like, I'll do a round, come to the marker, and tie a knot in the tail. If the tail isn't long enough or if I've got a lot to do, I do groups of ten, then pull them out and start again. It saves me from having to carry a row counter or a pad and pencil!

This is great, and so strong! Is it difficult to sew that material? Did you use a machine, or did you have to do it by hand?
