1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / turning a work in the round on: May 13, 2009 05:45:11 PM
OKay folks, please bear with me! I'm a lapsed knitter who (masochistically?) has decided to pick up needles again and make a tea cozy. Someone bought me a tea cozy book and I'm trying to follow a pattern and drawing a wicked blank. The author has posted the pattern on her blog, and I'm stuck at row 5 (not boding well for my knitting future :/ ). This is the pattern: http://www.grandpurlbaa.com/2006/05/wild-tea-cosies-rosie-posy-pattern.html

Can anyone explain to me in simple terms how I do this? I'm having a hard time working it out, I'm so rusty!

Thank you!  Kiss
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a Pig pattern on: July 22, 2006 04:39:53 PM
Hello Knitters!
After knitting a cat, mouse, and penguin for my coworkers, one has requested a pig. I was wondering if anyone knew of a free pig pattern, OR a book with a fairly decent looking pig pattern in it? I was thinking of doing a sheep and just changing the face a bit, but I just can't figure out how to do the nose!
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Rent tote on: June 26, 2006 03:49:45 PM
This is a bag I made for the Rent Swap (II). My partner received her package, so I figured it is safe to post now!

It's a Seasons of Love bag.
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Chuck Norris Waits. on: March 20, 2006 05:45:11 PM
So my roommate has recently become obsessed with Chuck Norris Facts, with his personal favourite being "Chuck Norris' tears can cure cancer. Too bad he never cried." Being just slightly offensive, I asked him what his second favourite quote was, and it was "Chuck Norris doesn't sleep. he waits." It was said roommate's birthday last friday but he went home, so on a whim I stole a chuck norris image from the website, made a stencil out of it, and bought a cheap orange tshirt. The stencil turned out ok, but I guess i got lazy with the text and it turned out kind of murky. But I don't care. It was made with love. I swear. Okay, and a bit of curiousity to see if he'll ever wear a homemade tshirt, and to test how sensitive he thinks I am when crafts turn out badly (hee! This is part two - the first part was a Jayne Cobb hat he actually wore outside. Once. To put the garbage out at 11 pm. But he still wore it!)

Without further ado, here is my completely unoriginal Chuck Norris tshirt, complete with black smudge from a dropped letter stamp (sigh, the stenciling gods were against me on this one).

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / sewing seams on: January 07, 2006 11:16:45 AM

fiew. got that off my chest. I just feel so incompetent when it comes to sewing seams. I can do a ton of stuff knitty, but my projects always end up looking... well, not as good as they good if i have to sew a seam. Case in point? the knitty legwarmers (postmodern: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring03/PATTlegwarmers.html). I made a pair of them, and they looked fabulous - except for this gross looking seam. I have read every book on sewing a "seamless" seam, and I just can't seem to succeed.

Does anyone have any secret tips that might help a girl out? I'm noticing a tendency to do everything in the round, so i don't have to do a seam, and I find I'm limiting myself!
