2  UNITED STATES / New Jersey / Decoupage studio?? on: July 09, 2007 01:33:50 PM
hey crafters!

i have been trying to find a craft studio where i can decoupage.  I know i can go to Michael's and get the supplies there but i had been to a decoupage studio in Los Angeles and the forms i could choose from were so varied and Michael's (and other craft stores) just have the usual boxes and circle cardboard forms.

I am in North Jersey but am very willing to travel!

i feel like i should have been able to figure this out but will i have any island problems with this stencil?


i read all the tutorials but maybe since it is sunday morning, i just can't seem to wrap my head around this whole island/bridge thing.

i want to stencil this on a canvas purse.

Thank you so much for help!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help w/ 5 hour baby boy sweater on: January 31, 2007 11:41:12 AM
I am at the point where I am almost done with the first sleeve and I got to this paragraph:

**********Bind off leaving last stitch on needle. With right sides together slip stitch sleeve closed being careful to close up all the holes at the underarm. Place last stitch on left hand needle. Knit 2 tog and knit across to next marker. Place back of sweater stitches that you just knit on a stitch holder or piece of waste yarn.**********

My confusion is, how do I slip stitch the sleeve closed without breaking off the yarn?  And I only know how to slip stitch with a darning needle not a regular knitting needle.  Am I missing something?

here's a link to the full pattern

Any help, suggestions, advice would be greatly appreciated!!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Baby sweater pattern with Dalegarn Stork on: January 08, 2007 06:35:20 PM
Hello fellow knitters

I hope you can help me.  I was asked to do a baby boy sweater or cardigan and the woman who asked me bought a bunch of Dalegarn Stork yarn to use.  The Dale of Norway baby patterns that I looked at pretty much all use size 0 needles.  I was hoping someone out there has used this yarn but with a pattern with larger needles. I know I am going to have to use at least 2 strands put together.  I have experimented with some patterns (other than Dale of Norway) with larger needles but those patterns usually call for yarn that has some texture/nubbiness to it, making the final product interesting looking.   

Thank you in advance for any and all suggestions. : )
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hourglass Sweater question on: October 16, 2005 12:38:56 PM
Hello crafters

I have searched the other threads for questions re:Hourglass Sweater but have not found what I am looking for.

I have divided for the yoke, doing the K5 and then placing the last 10 sts on a holder.  I should have 87 sts for the front and back but I do not.  I have 84 for one side and 90 for the other.  So you would think i messed up in putting the 10 sts on the holder but when I look at where i have the increases (where the 10 sts are being held) the increases are perfectly in the middle of the 10 sts but obviously i have done something wrong. 

Has anyone had this problem or know how I can correct it?  I figure all i have to do is take 3 from one side and put on the other side but I feel like the increases will be off then the sides will look funky (And not in a good way ;-) )

Thanks for any help.
