1  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Re: Project Runway 3 (see first post) on: November 21, 2007 07:30:15 AM
Elisa is, allegedy, pretty well-known, but not as a fashion designer. I think she lives in New Mexico, which is basically NorCal East (just kidding. Kinda.).

I think they picked unknown designers with significant talent. These people are in the middle rungs of  their careers, which gives them much more potential to become big fashion designers. That said, I was pretty underwhelmed by several of the designers first efforts, which is kind of inexcusable since they had so few restrictions on their designs (real fabric, no "theme," etc). Rami's dress was gorgeous, Chris' dress was pretty nice, but there was, to quote the immortal Laura Bennett, "some serious ugly in that room."
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Diaper Soakers/Covers on: October 26, 2007 04:02:39 PM
I should have known craftsters would save the day! I was just on ebay looking at soakers and discovered that they cost $15 and up for the wool ones. Then I saw one that was made from a felted, recycled sweater. Doesn't get much more enviro-friendly than that! Then I thought, somebody on craftster must know how to do this and voila! I find this thread. I know its slightly OT, but has anyone tried felting instead of knitting a soaker? I imagine it would be pretty simple, just curious if anyone has pointers...

PR 4 starts November 14th.
I'm pretty jealous that PR Canada a) has a much more diverse group of designers (as in, not majority white), and b) is hosted by Iman. I would love to see the David Bowie-themed challenges they come up with.
4  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Eunny Jang's Deep V argyle vest on: July 23, 2007 07:51:27 AM

Kadreath posted a green version with skulls in the argyle.  She also posted it in a seperate thread here:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120342.0

It has a link to her blog where she provides the skull chart, good luck and have fun!

Hey, thanks for the link. I think you misunderstood what I was getting at, though. I was just noting that the latest designers at Target seem to have been "inspired" (read: ripped off) by Kadreath's design. I thought it was interesting is all, I'm not going to make one (I already started one of these a year ago that I have gotten about 6 inches into, and now I'm 5 months pregnant, so it wouldn't fit me anyway!)

I am too lazy at the moment to slog through 29 pages to find out, but didn't someone post a version of this vest in this thread where they substituted skulls for some of the argyle diamonds? I remember thinking it very cute, which is why I was shocked to see this version of it at Target:
You think the designers at Libertine are Craftster members?!

Oooh, exciting! This is only a few blocks from where I live! I heard somewhere that Michael Levine also sells yarn. Did you see any?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Movie Knits - Penelope Scarf on: February 17, 2007 08:47:13 PM

I just saw the trailer for the movie Penelope with Christina Ricci that is coming out this spring. It features a fantastic scarf with a honeycomb pattern. If anyone knows where I can find a pattern for a multicolor scarf like this, I'd be thrilled.

Check it out at:

That looks like what I have heard called a "honeycomb" stitch. You can find a pattern for it in Mason Dixon Knitting in the pattern for the "Big Dotty Cushion." It's essentially two rows knit in color A (in your pic that would be the black), then you switch colors and slip two stiches every six stitches (*k6, sl2*--this isn't exactly right, but you get the idea). You could probably look this up under slip stich patterns as well.

The only thing about this pattern is that it will only look good on one side. And it reeeeeally needs to be blocked. I did something in this stitch in cotton and I was not very happy with the results. I recommend wool, or something that stretches and blocks well.
Good luck!

*melts* This is the best thing I've ever heard! Thanks, low_budget_diva!
You're quite welcome. I am so sad they don't have the release date on it. My guess is it will all be very well timed: PR4 will probably start up in June and when it wraps we'll get the premiere of Tim's show on Bravo which will coincide with his (sure to be) fabulous book being released. Keep your fingers crossed!

Fellow Gunn acolytes, get ready to pre-order:


Also, I guess Bravo will be giving Tim his own show based on his yet-to-be-released book. Yay!

I just spotted this, too. This one is made for craftsters! I would enter if I knew how to work with those materials. Anyway, I will already be living in L.A so it's not much of a prize for me  Undecided
