Wow - I guess I'm the only one who HASN'T loved the last two issues!  I haven't seen anything that I've been drawn to.   Sad

No, you're not alone. I was a bit disappointed. Ah well.

I just saw your post on the craftsters on Ravelry board!!!

Wait a minute - that must've been someone else, cause I'm not in that group. Er, well, I just joined, now that I thought to since you mentioned it.  Grin

Thank you!  Grin Man... I do wish I'd written things down as I was knitting it, so I could more easily write a pattern - but I ended up altering it to fit me because my initial pattern was just an approximation. I may work on a pattern someday, though. Smiley
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: My sister is going away to college soon in Missouri.... on: July 14, 2007 06:08:25 PM
Ooh, where is she going?

I live in Kansas City and go to UMKC.  My dad used to live in Florida.  You're right, it is a huge climate change.  Once Christmas vacation I put my feet in the ocean and came back to snow the next week.

Yay, Kansas City! I'm from KC, too. However, I went to college in Minnesota, and now the idea of Kansas/Missouri winters being rough is amusing to me. Try winters where you're overjoyed when the high temperature reaches 20 after weeks of being around 0, with windchills of -20... Tongue

But anyway, yes, I can understand that Missouri would still be a big change from Florida.

Thanks, chipper! That's good to know. I'm excited to learn to weave. Smiley

Question for chipper or anyone else - I am a prospective weaver and am going to take a class first, but if all goes well, the loom I've been eyeing is the 32" harp. Here's my question: does that refer to the width of the loom or the width of the fabric it creates? I'd love to be able to weave fabric wide enough to sew clothing, and so I wouldn't want it to be any narrower than 32".

Thanks! Smiley

So, I got all excited when I saw this thread, and then I remembered, "Oh, yeah, I graduated two days ago."

So I'm not technically a college knitter, but I was. I started knitting my freshman year and never looked back.

I'm with the person who said that knitting is a good method of procrastination.  Tongue Well, sometimes it worked that way for me. Sometimes I avoided studying for finals by knitting, though sometimes I let my knitting go by the wayside when I needed to study (I haven't knit at all in the past couple of weeks, between writing final papers and the hubbub of senior week and graduation).

One thing that was a bummer for me is that in my college's town (which was small), there was only one shop selling yarn, and it was expensive. So, as far as budget goes (and availability, if your situation is like mine), knitpicks is your friend!

Edit: As for where I kept it all -- a giant plastic bin. Big ol' purple thing that's 2' x 18" x 18" or something like that.

Nope, I actually didn't block it at all. I tend to not block unless I absolutely have to...hah, I am lazy and impatient to wear things once I finish them. Smiley
