11  Arizona / Arizona: Central / dollar needlework supplies! on: February 08, 2006 09:17:10 PM
the .99 store by hancock fabrics behind gold bar espresso at southern and mcclintock has US8 14 inch needles for a buck, and also a kit that has a US6 circular needle (maybe 24") and a matching 4mm hook, also a dollar. And a kit of tiny crochet hooks and other stuff that I didn't get a good look at as Lily was acting up. Anybody up for a meetup?
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Illegal or my first troll... on: January 25, 2006 12:10:53 PM
hey. So I have this blog (http://soysilk.blogs.com/knitting_with_jenny/), and I posted my version of the ubiquitous panta pattern to which I made several changes, and now I have this comment on my blog from this lady who's all... well, I'll quote.

"Just to let you know that the "PANTA" is a Garn Studio pattern.
You might want to re-think taking credit for a pattern made by another company and posting it on your site as your own, and really, have some dignity, don't be a HACK!
I have emailed them to let them know what you have done here. Good luck with them intelectual property laws! I for one am EXTREMELY disappointed in Jenny!"

Does anybody know the law in this case? I am not selling this pattern, and I thought I was pretty clear that it wasn't even my original pattern, and I made changes to it. Should I take it down? Am I just freaking out in the face of a troll? Does this lady have a point? Also, she didn't spell intellectual right. I'm calling that ironic.
13  Arizona / Arizona: Central / stitch n bitch phoenix - where is it? on: January 18, 2006 10:33:53 AM
Suddenly, this group does not exist on yahoo anymore as of today. Is it my computer? Is it the sew fast sew easy storm troopers? Just curious as to what happens now. Thanks.
14  Arizona / Arizona: Central / Yarn related job opp in Tempe on: January 10, 2006 03:23:17 PM
hey guys. There may be a job opening up where I work. It's full time, and involves a good bit of telephone work, but you get to talk about yarn. PM me if you're interested.

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / one skein ideas. on: January 03, 2006 03:09:18 PM
I have one ball of a new yarn from work and I'd like to do something interesting with it. It's a pinky purple blue variegated worsted weight soy ribbon yarn, and I have 175 yards. Any ideas? Thanks.
16  UNITED STATES / Arizona / crafty business idea... sort of on: December 30, 2005 08:26:14 PM
I know there's a topic for this more generally, but I wanted to see what you guys thought, first. I got yarn harlot books for christmas, and she talks about how she taught knitting at a toy store, which I thought would be a pretty cool gig, and so I was wondering how I could get some creative teaching gigs and I came up with this. It's like party clowns, but instead of baloon animals and face paint, you learn a craft like knitting or tie dyeing or soapmaking or whatever. And no one dresses up like clowns. That's an important part. I'm pretty sure no one would be rolling in the dough from this, but it beats a poke in the eye. I just had this thought today, I haven't taken it any further than that. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / exhaustive sock resource sought on: December 23, 2005 04:05:16 PM
I am looking for something that will tell me all I need to know about knitting socks. For instance, I would like to know which types of heels are best for, well, whatever you would use a different type of heel for. I've been looking through lots of sock books and they seem to be all sorts of different color combinations and gauges, but basically one sock pattern. It's not exactly that I want to know it all (though it's possible that I do), but I would really like to know where to look to find it all. I have checked around at the sock knitter's listserv, but I haven't asked them anything yet. Thanks guys!
18  Arizona / Arizona: Central / knitted historical figures $8 in mesa on: December 23, 2005 12:41:58 PM
I admit it. I troll bookstores looking for knitting books. And the other day at half price books on southern by superstition springs ctr I found jan messent's knitted historical figures for eight bucks, and they had a few copies, so I thought I'd pass it on. It's definitely interesting as a reference text and it's got some gorgeous stuff in it. I also got a book on sock styles of the eastern hemisphere or something like that. Merry wonky christmas to me. Anybody else seen good knitting books in PHX bookstores? Preferably used ones? I'm at bookman's at least once a week, and they occasionally have a good book (recent score: wool as a cottage industry) but nothing to write home about really. happy holidays guys.
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / two color scarf dilemma on: December 23, 2005 12:12:17 PM
Hey. So I have to knit this two color scarf for work, and I want to do something fun, but I've played around with it and nothing is working for me. I tried a slipstitch pattern, but the back looked awful, and so then I tried it in the round, and, wow, too much work for something that is not very pretty. I'm using orange and black in a feltable wool blend. Also, it should be moderately manly. Please help. Thank you.
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting TMBG puppets. on: December 18, 2005 08:20:42 PM
So I've gotten lots of good looks at the puppet johns in the new TMBG dvd, here come the ABCs, and I can see how they were knitted, mostly, but I know nothing about puppet construction. Any help would be awesome. Also, I completely recommend this dvd. It's like 120 minutes for toddlers.
