31  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitted Curtains on: July 29, 2005 02:55:42 PM
Two friends of mine just moved into an old crappy house in a funky area of town.  They're painting the living room all sorts of different colors, from bright red to pea-soup green to mustard yellow.  Don't cringe.. the colors all go together..
Anyways, my friend asked me if I could knit curtains for this room, which I think is a great idea.  I think it would be fun to have some funky looking curtains in there.

My question is.. does anyone know of any knitted curtain patterns? Or perhaps some really open lace?  I think working on size 17s or 19s would be great.  Perhaps I could modify something like "branching out" from Knitty into curtains...

oh, I guess I should add that these are two guys, so I wouldn't want anything too frilly.
32  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / Inherited Workbasket mags.. on: July 05, 2005 02:10:01 AM
Some time ago, my mother and I came into possession of at least 30 Workbasket magazines from various female relatives.  Most of them are from the 1970's, in addition to a few other random knitting and crocheting books/mags from that time.
I'm just wondering if it was ok to scan and post the patterns from them since they're not exactly new.

I also have a Woman's Day magazine from 1971 that has a ton of knit hat patterns in it.. in addition to many unintentionally hilarious photos.

I'm scared to go digging further into the closet because there are probably even more hiding in there... eek
33  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Intarsia + Ribbing? on: May 17, 2005 01:49:22 AM
I'm attempting to recreate the pattern of a purse I bought a few years ago.
The flap is made in 1x1 ribbing and I had a random idea to make an intarsia design there.
How would one go about making a design in 1x1 ribbing?
Would it be similar to shadow knitting?
Or would one simply follow the design as charted?
34  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Knitting Garden's Chunky Print Wrap on: April 22, 2005 12:15:51 PM

I finished this a couple weeks ago.  I knitted it first in some fuzzy green scrap yarn.  I loved the pattern so much, that I had to knit it again in this lovely wool I bought on impulse.

My photos probably aren't the best, but oh well


35  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Patterned Scarf help.. on: April 06, 2005 11:16:29 PM
I want to knit a scarf for my friend, but I'm not sure which stitch to use.

I'd like to have (in intarsia) one big white anchor at each end of the scarf.
Should I just use garter stitch or is there some fancy stitch out there that allows intarsia, but won't curl like stockinette?

edit:  Actually, since I'm making a scarf, I probably shouldn't use intarsia, should I?

edit 2: I suppose I could use intarsia if I knitted in the round.
Any suggestions on how to use intarsia with knitting in the round? or is it pretty much the same as with straight knitting?
so many questions  Tongue

i made this last year for my notebook for school.  i used metallic pink acrylic paint to add accents.  i got the images from various magazines and adhered them with Mod Podge.  i also used to coats of Mod Podge to protect it.

the caption above Einstein reads "The name's Einstein.  Albert Einstein."
the girl with the pink hair "Go on. Spoil me!"
the caption next to James Dean "We love a brooding man like James Dean."
