1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Rachel Comey Fur Helmet on: October 11, 2008 08:43:33 AM

I'm desperately want this Rachel Comey Fur Helmet:

(http://www.shop.creaturesofcomfort.us/ then click accessories, it's the second item)

But I don't love the $300 price tag, or the fact that it's made of real fur. Also, because I'm pretty sure I can make this one myself. Does anyone know of a similar shaped hat pattern? Also, I've never worked with faux fur before, so any tips would be greatly appreciated!


2  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Stella!!! on: December 08, 2006 09:54:16 AM
er.. Stella McCartney for Adidas that is..

I love this sweatshirt.

I do not love $180 for a sweatshirt. I can make this, I'm sure of it, and in a week, I have a month off of school. This is my quest. This is my excalibur!

any tips, advice, warnings, naysayings?

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / The Thick and the Dead on: November 19, 2006 11:31:28 AM
So, here I am sequestered away at college with not a LYS in sight. So I have, as of late, become obsessed with finding online catalogues and websites that sell yarn that is more special than that at Michael's. The problem, of course, is that one can't touch the yarn before purchasing, and the photos are often quite deceiving.

I want to find the thickest gauged yarn in existance. (I'm serious, I want like garden hosed circumferenced yarn here. well, maybe not garden hose, but you get the idea.) more like the circumference of a nickel.

I think Rowan's biggie is too small, as is Lion Brand's Big. I want massive, huge, ridiculous, impossibly huge yarn.

Any suggestions (preferably in online ordering form??)
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting with Lurex? on: November 14, 2006 09:00:08 AM
Hello my lovely craftsters,

I'm planning a scarf of the anthropologie, enormous gauge, ridiculously chunky variety,using a brioche rib, or a fisherman's rib and I'm considering adding a lurex sparkle to the mix. Is there any way for me to add the lurex in vertically without having to knit it with the chunky yarn the entire time? (let's say I have 5 ribs running vertically, can I just add the lurex on the ribs? if so, how so?)

If this is so not possible, does anyone have any suggestions for how to use the lurex? I want to sparkle, dammit! sparkle!
