131  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: First shawl - what's your advice? on: May 21, 2006 06:02:01 AM
thanks for the link!  i'm waiting on some interlacements and had planned on making a silvia harding pattern.  it's my first lace ever, and i'm feeling sort of chicken about doing it.
132  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help! k1p1 nightmare!!! on: May 21, 2006 05:58:48 AM
i'm in the middle of the anthropologie caplet, and strongly suggest you cast on more the 49 stitches!  i'm a size 4, and it's a really tight fit.  i used noro yarn, not the muench the pattern i have suggests, so that maybe the issue, but thought i would mention it.  if i make this again, i would probably add three stitches on each front (i'm getting 3 stitches/inch) and maybe add four to six stitches on the back.

as long as you remember to move your yarn to the front of the needles to purl and to the back to knit you will be fine.  remember that on that pattern, there are places where you do the yarn overs, and then you're in that awkward at first place where you have to knit the funny stitch just like it's a normal one to get the little holes that demarcate the raglan sleeve line.

you start each row of the ribbing by knitting.  i did mine as a knit one purl one because i like the look better, but it is a bit more work. good luck!

i think it's jonathontalbot.com or just google for him.  he's in the new york/new jersey area, but does classes all over the country and is an excellent teacher.  i'd like to do another set of classes with him later this year.

136  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / a shepardess? on: May 20, 2006 01:50:18 PM
my seven year old wants to be a shepardess for halloween this year.  you know, it a long billowing white dress with a crook.  and, get this, she wants her 3 year old brother to be the sheep.

um, what do i do here?  do i just take a couple pounds of undyed merino roving and strategically glue them on the three year old?  seriously, if anyone has ideas or maybe wants to make me costumes (i would trade LIBERALLY from my store if anyone wanted to save my life here), i would love to hear about it.  she's been bugging me about this every day for other three months now.  it is NOT going to go away.

137  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / help me! first art show on: May 20, 2006 01:46:57 PM
i'm applying for my first art show.  it's a small one, for emerging artists, and it's "artwalk" style.  no place to hang stuff--but you get tables in the business that houses you.  i'm going to show small collage and assemblage pieces, as well as some wearable art.  does anyone have good ideas for me about cool but affordable ways to display things?
138  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting my first handspun on: May 20, 2006 12:05:04 PM
oh cool! why didn't i think of that?  and best of all, it means i can frog it and have the pleasure of knitting with it again! (it's bfl and it feels fabulous).  i had this vague idea i would use it as the back panel of a fall sweater and knit out around it.  how's that for a disaster in the making?
139  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / collage work on: May 20, 2006 11:57:50 AM

i'm so excited!  i was able to take one of jonathon talbot's collage classes, and his method has really clicked for me.  i just wanted to share one here, and recommend his class to anyone who had the chance to take it (no affiliation).
140  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Knitting my first handspun on: May 20, 2006 11:48:58 AM
this is sort of a stupid thing.  i was so entranced with my first handspun yarn (on a high whorl spindle) that i just started knitting, stupidly trying to convince myself there was enough for a scarf.  there isn't.  but it's so pretty, lol.  i love the colors.  what should i do with it?
