31  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
32  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
33  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Making stripes match across the front of a coat?? on: March 15, 2006 11:16:41 AM
I started knitting A 3/4 length coat in 'Colorado' (which looks akin to carpet shreds)  Roll Eyes Its made in 2 halves for the back, and the same 2 halves for the front. Only prob is, now I've finished one side, how the heck do I make the other match?  Huh

I'm using a raspberry shade, so its all similar shades in the stripes, but the pattern in the Rebecca magazine has 3 different colours in it, and the stripes are perfect, right down to the shading!!!  Shocked (Its called 'Gray and Red coat')

I see either 2 choices ahead if I can't solve it;

1. rip it back and knit a different coat on circs, and I hate circs.

2. Carry on and have a rather mismatched looking coat.

What to do... what to do???
34  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dr Who/Dalek dress up outfit... how the??... on: March 07, 2006 11:53:38 AM
Right, who stole my message??  Grin

The pc was playing up this morning, ah well  Roll Eyes

Ok, I have to make a Dalek outfit for my sons 'world book day' at school- go as your fave book charecter. I know Daleks arent strictly a book charecter, more a tv charecter, where the programme is aslo made into books, but my son HATES dressing up, but seems really keen on this!  Grin

I thought I'd run this by you, in case you had any good ideas, or if you thought it might work.

I have a load of dark yellow hot air balloon fabric, and I am going to construct a 'cone' shape, ankle length, pinafore type thing.(Bit like pulling a full length underskirt up under your pits)  I have 2 sets of hoops usually used to stick out the bottom of wedding dresses. I'm gonna put one in the middle of the cone, and another at the bottom to get the general Dalek shape. Then make the bumps on the Dalek out of orange circles of material.

The helmet has already been made from papier mache, and old landrover lenses (original Dalek lights were made of these!!) with battery powered fairy lights inside!!!

I'll see if I can get my hubby to put a pic of it on here.  Cheesy

So, is there an easy way to do this full length tabard/dress type thing?? Shall I make the top bit first, or the whole length at once? I've never used the hoops before.  Huh
