1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Henry's New Sweater on: January 22, 2007 09:13:15 AM
That is TOO cute! What kind of dog is Henry?

I have two Shih Tzus, and I am getting tired of crocheting their sweaters. I wanted to try my hand at knitting. Do any of ya'll know any good dog sweater patterns for beginner knitters?

Mkay, I have another question. I started this scarf, and the beginning chain was off....or from what I counted it was. I counted 33 as the beginning chain, but I ended up having to add two more chains to make the first row come out right.

From there I followed the pattern, but now I am confused how to repeat the pattern. The last row and the first row don't line up right when I start over with the first row. Does that make sense? What am I doing wrong? I really liked how this was coming out so far, and would hate to be stuck and not finish.

Don't think me stupid, but I am a beginner to knitting, and I haven't gotten the hang of changing colors yet. How did you tie off the ends? I love this scarf, and I have a TON of scrap yarn from all my crocheting projects. I would love to make a scarf like this. Did you just knit your rows, or did you purl anywhere too?
I also noticed that someone said they just tied their ends together and knit. Do you have any problems with the knots coming undone? Lots of times when I close off a crochet project with some of the softer yarns, like Homespun, my knots come undone. Is there another way I can do this without it coming apart?

I absolutely LOVE this scarf! I also have the Branching Out pattern, but haven't been brave enough to try it. This I can do. Yipee! And I agree with everyone else, NO FRINGE! Its beautiful the way it is.

I do have one question, though. In the second pic, you have a bracelet on. It is hard to see, but I can tell that it is black, and it almost looks like a pineapple. Am I seeing wrong? Just curious....when I saw it, and had the idea that it was one, I thought, "Wow, that would be something unique and cool!" So if that is indeed what I think I saw, do you have any other pics of it, or a pattern or idea how you made it? And if its not what I think I am seeing, anyone got any ideas on how to turn a pineapple into a bracelet/cuff thing? Haha! I'm ok, really. Just tired. But I get my greatest ideas when I am tired. Haha!

Thank goodness I have  a 5 year old daughter to justify this Hello Kitty adorableness.  I think I might be just a little too old to actually use an HK tote. 

You don't have to have a 5 year old to justify HK. Look at all the adults that swoon over their favorite NASCAR drivers (me) or their favorite comic books....having big super S's on the back windshield of their cars. Its no different. Besides, HK is cute....how could you NOT like her? My hubby likes that penguin...what's his name? Myself, I like Chococat. I had a pet rabbit that I named ChocoBunny, and I'm 26 (hubby is 37)! Hehe.

Ah! How cool! Thanks for the graph. I am just hoping that you don't get in trouble for posting it. Isn't it kinda against the copywrite to post it? I really hope not.

I just started a new job, so it is taking away from my crocheting/knitting time. I am hoping on one of my days off I can sit down and make a square. I think it is SO adorable!

BTW, I have tried to access the Shop Crafty link, and it keeps giving me an error message. Is there something wrong on my end, or is it Craftster?

OMG it is SO cute! I can't tell you are a beginner at all. Now I am envious....I wanna make one.  Cry

If I missed it, forgive me, but wha tother patterns were in the book besides the square?
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need Pattern Ideas for a yarn on: April 15, 2006 02:54:42 PM
Hi Ya'll. I am fairly new to this site, but am already enjoying it very much.

I am hoping you all can help me. I bought some yarn today that I just couldn't resist. It is an older yarn, from an older lady that owns a LYS near me. She likes to take her old yarn and mark it down to get rid of it. So lucky me I got this yarn for $1 a skein. Now I don't know what to make from it!  Cry

This is all that it says on the label:

46% angora  39% Lambswool 15% Polyamide F.
Count 1/2500
Made in Italy
6-7 needles
Conditioned weigth [not a typo...this is what the label reads]
weigth 20 GRS (0,70 oz)
length 55 yds

It is a beautiful, sport weight, cream color with a hunter-ish green and in the green is very small flecks of color, like purple, yellow, red, etc. I couldn't pass this up, and now I have 15 skeins of this yarn...at $1 a piece, and her regular price tag said $4! Now, what to do with it?

Normally I make things to sell, but I am afraid that I wouldn't get the price I would ask for something made from this yarn, [most people don't really know the value in hand made things and don't want to pay a lot...at least around here] so I am wanting to make something for me.

I mostly crochet, and I am teaching myself to knit, slowly. This yarn looks better knit, but beings I am a beginner, I may have to stick with crocheting it. I am not really in to hats and scarves, and I am afraid that may be my only choices with such a little ammount of yarn.  If any of you have any ideas on what I can make from this, let me know. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance! Grin

Oh my goodness! That is SO cute! Is it all Hello Kitty, or are there other characters in there as well? I am really taken with Chococat, for some reason. She is my new mascot. Hehe.

When you get the book, and actually make something from it, you'll have to post it and let us all see.  Grin

Just checked this post....can't see the pics. Was wondering how you, or anyone else for that matter, made your collars. I would love to make some. Now that I have a female dog, I love to dress her up. I've been making her crocheted sweaters, and I find that her collar doesn't match them all. HAHA! If anyone has a pattern, design, or can lead me to a pattern, that would be great. I just LOVE looking at the fabric in Wally World and saying, "Gawd, wouldn't that make a cute collar?"
