2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / impressive looking baby hats? on: February 20, 2007 01:21:42 PM
I have about five preganant co-workers and we are having a big shower for all of them at work.  I need a baby hat pattern that will impress.  Something that I can make in a couple nights of knitting.  I've looked around knitting pattern central and a few other places, but haven't been struck by anything...

can anyone help?
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Weekend Swap...48 hours? on: February 02, 2007 10:42:58 AM
A while back I participated in a weekend swap, where you only had 48 hours to complete one small project for your partner.  It was my favorite swap and I would love to do another one...I am too busy to organize...anyone interested?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / sock patterns...suggestions? on: December 21, 2006 07:59:10 PM
I just bought some sock yarn for my first sock project...I plan to tackle this on the plane as I travel home for the holidays...

one problem...I can't figure out what pattern to use.  I am an advanced intermediate knitter, but these will be my first socks...should I go totally basic or will that be boring?  Anyone have any suggestions?  My flight leaves in the morning, so quick responses are most appreciated!

Thanks all!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / yarn suggestions? on: November 17, 2006 09:52:13 AM
I have a problem.  I have a sensitivity to wool and as a knitter, it puts me in a bad spot.  Anyone have any yarns they love that are either a low wool content blend or completely wool free?  I want to make some sweaters, but I don't want to be all itchy!

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / purse handles...banana leaf vs bamboo on: August 14, 2006 11:41:16 PM
I am going to be knitting a felted bag and I had planned on using round bamboo handles.  As I have been shopping around the internet, I have seen banana leaf purse handles.  They are similar to the bamboo, but look smooth.  They also seem to be a bit more spendy than their bamboo counterparts...heres a link:


anyone have any experience with these?  Opinions?  Thanks!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / fair isle newbie! help please! on: July 15, 2006 11:06:52 PM
I am attempting my first fair isle project...the Manresa Leg Warmers from Knitty.

I am having a problem with my floats...there are places in the chart where it calls for the strand to be carried across something like 24 stitches!  I was under the impression that you shouldn't carry a float for more than four or five...what am I missing here?  I have crazy strands everywhere!

Please help!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Sterling Circles Necklace on: July 06, 2006 02:44:24 PM
Just thought that I'd share my most recent jewelry creation!  Let me know what you think!

9  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Manresa Leg Warmers on: July 06, 2006 12:43:55 PM
Just ordered my yarn for these...
seems like a good first attempt at fair-isle for me.  Knitpicks' super slow shipping will give me some time to finish up some of the stuff I already have on the needles, but I am looking forward to starting these soon!

Would anyone like to join me?

oopps! edited to fix link!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / incredible growing sweater! on: June 19, 2006 10:22:56 AM
I just knit a beautiful capelet with Debbie Bliss cashmerino super chunky.  It fit perfect, but I thought that it would look a bit more finished if I blocked it...so I did:


Now, I've had things gain a little length when blocked, but never anything like this!

Should I just frog it?

Will it happen again, or has the yarn already "stretched"?

If I reknit, do I go with smaller needles, or change my # of stitches, or both?

I've been tossing these things around in my head all morning...I would love to hear some other knitters' thoughts.
