"everybody needs a bosom for a pillow"  Grin  Grin

Did you nuke the yarn in the microwave? If you did, did you leave it in the jars of koolaid or take it out and wrap it in film?? Still wating to give this a go.  Roll Eyes
223  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Choccy creme egg cosies/cozys!! (& patt.) on: March 22, 2006 10:47:42 AM
This last week I have been making furry egg cosies for my daughters Girl Guides easter chocolate raffle. They wanted a donation of 2 large and 3 small eggs from each guide, and to be quite frank, I'm skint!!  Embarrassed So I dived into my stash, and came up with these, I've done 16 so far.  Grin

The guider in charge was so pleased with them, I've now got to make as many as I can for Saturday!!  Shocked She said she'd rather have these on the stall than the easter eggs!!  Cool Me, pleased?? Oh yes!!  Grin

They are really easy to do;

28 stitches and 28 rows. (all rows garter st.)
5mm needles
double knit yarn
fun fur yarn (or similar)

Cast on 28st
knit 1 row in double knit
2 rows in fun fur (or some kind of fluffy funky stuff)
2 rows double knit
repeat the 2 rows fur, 2 rows double knit until 27 rows.
1 row dk
cast off in dk

To sew up;

Sew cast on and cast off edge together, then make running stitches through 1 end, pull together and fasten off, leave other end open. Push fastened end inside the 'tube' until it will fit a creme egg in. Make a tie from the yarn/ ribbon/ beads etc to fasten  above the top of the egg. It doesn't matter which side is inside or out, because you get a different effect with both.

The shorter closed end one was made with 22st and 28 rows, and I fastened both ends.

Heres a pic of the results.  Grin

ooh I love it!! Cool My daughter is 13, and would be well chuffed to get one of those, so I think your on to a winner!!  Grin

 It's amazing to see how much the size changed too, I've only ever seen before or after pics of felting, not both together.  Cool
226  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Re: YARN DYEING 101 - KOOL AID on: March 20, 2006 05:37:01 AM
Ok, I decided to get off my butt, as I promised you lot, and dye the Opal sock wool I got the other week. Went to wind it off the hank (I wanted to space dye it in 3 jars).  Cool

I thought, 'how am I going to wind it'?? I got my sons KNex out, and made a 3 pronged thingy I could wind it around, with a prong in the centre for the direction change (so I can knot it in the middle to seperate the 3 sections iykwim). Twas too heavy for the knex. Getting frustrated, and on the verge of meltdown (cos I've been wanting to try this for ages now) I nearly went and got my son out of bed to help me build a stronger one!!  Shocked  Roll Eyes

My lovely hubby looked over from the pc and told me he will make me a winder from dowelling and wood... one that will last forever, so I can make lots of lovely funky wool!!!  Kiss  Grin Isn't he fab!!??!!

Must remind him today  Grin

Rebecca magazine (no 30 sep-dec 2005) have a lovely knitted skirt in 'coco' yarn. Its a basic a line, knitted on circs. It was also featured in Vogue knitting magazine too, can't remember whic one, but it must have been recently.

Are you planning on making your own pattern??
228  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / manual for knitting machine- anywhere online do them?? on: March 20, 2006 05:15:10 AM
I'm trying to find somewhere online that does manuals for old knitting machines, its a 1980's Knitmaster.

I know I've read a thread on the sewing forum about getting one for a sewing machine, but can't find the tread. Any helpful links, please post below!!  Grin
229  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Music to knit to? and links to yarn images needed-help!! on: March 17, 2006 06:22:20 AM
Ok, why does my pc not like posting on this forum??  Cry

Each time I try a 'discussions' forum, it messes up!!  Roll Eyes

Right, I need to find a piece of music to play at the end of a radio interview, which I'm doing about knitting!! (Its also broadcast on the net if anyone is interested)  Grin

If I can't find anything knitting realted, they will end up with Aerosmith  Grin

Also I'm panicking about not having designed a poster yet, towards a knitting exhibition I'm organising for April. Antone gat any good links to knitting images?? I've tried google, and not been that impressed.

Cheers.  Kiss

I did write it down, sorry should have mentioned the wool is varigated but does come up in a pattern of stripes when knitted, but I've got no way of knowing WHAT pattern from the start of the ball. Sorry  Roll Eyes
