1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / i knit scarves! (img intense!) on: August 20, 2007 10:02:09 PM
the first one is tragicheroine's anthropologie scarf. i first attempted this right when i learned and i kept messing up the k2p2 rib. i had to start over like 6 times until i gave up. i tried it again later and realized that while i was doing k2p2 for the first row, i wasn't switching to p2k2 for the second row. i was still doing k2p2!  Roll Eyes

i used 2 balls of yarn bee icelandic jewels in peridot with size 10.5 needles. i used the clover pom pom makers and man, i can't believe i ever tried to make them by hand.

this one is my own pattern, a drop stitch scarf using two balls of patons sws in natural earth. took only two days to finish!

i like to call this one the grimace scarf! two balls of moda dea curious, made for a friends birthday.

this is also my own pattern, a drop stitch scarf knit lengthwise. i didn't bind off loosely at all and ended up with a corkscrew scarf. oops! used two balls of yarn bee aurora in deep water.

aaand lastly i finished danica using patons sws in natural blue. this one took a lot longer and my gauge really stinks. i still haven't blocked it!

2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Fall/Winter Scarf swap? on: August 15, 2007 03:24:00 AM
fall is coming and so is winter...how about a scarf swap? you could weave, sew, knit, crochet, braid, quilt...i'd love to see someone set this up! (my brain couldn't handle the organization...my daughter takes up like, 80% of my brain.  Undecided)
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / knitty's edgar - my first FO! on: May 23, 2007 08:29:02 PM

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / spiral bound books! on: April 02, 2007 09:52:32 PM

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help on Knitty's Unbiased bag on: March 02, 2007 05:24:17 PM
Hello all! I am a new knitter and have only finished one scarf. I am confused on one part though.

I get this part. Knit, purls, bind offs are no strangers to me. ------>CO 3 sts. K 1 row.

This part I don't. What does it mean to knit in FRONT and BACK of first stitch?  I looked on KnittingHelp.com but couldn't find anything!   ------> *Row 1(RS): Knit in front and back of first stitch, knit to last stitch, knit in front and back of last stitch. Use small safety pin to mark this as the right side.

Any help would be appreciated!!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / taking great pictures of yarn and FOs on: February 23, 2007 12:10:44 AM
What's the best way to take pictures of yarn with a digital camera? I'm thinking either a nice sun filled room or the bathroom (they have the best lighting). The one thing I hate the most is taking pictures of my FOs and yarns and having them turn up too dark to see accurate colors, stitches, etc. Any tips would be appreciated!

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / What's your favorite crochet website? on: January 10, 2007 12:34:38 AM
I don't know if this question has been asked before as the search turned up nothing. So, tell me your favorite crochet website!
10  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / super blue/red fluffy bunny slippers on: January 06, 2007 12:12:32 AM

made with red heart in red, and yarn bee's playful in blue waltz. i made these in my third trimester and they were hell on my wrists since my hands  were so bloated! it also didn't help that the yarns together were kind of thick and i used a g hook...but they're soft and cozy and worth the pain  Smiley
