1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: what I've finished since Christams on: January 13, 2008 03:46:12 PM
Wait, you've finished all that since this Christmas? As in 3 weeks ago Shocked
I think that's more than I did all last year.
Everything looks great. I especially love the sweater. Nice design and great color!
2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Modifying Patterns on: December 02, 2007 01:58:24 PM
This may not be the most appropriate board for this question, but here goes.
Just got Son of Stitch N Bitch and LOVE it. I'm working on the argyle scarf now which is super fun to knit.
Because I'm selfish, I have chosen to knit more things for myself and my girlfriends before knitting for my man.
I don't know how to modify the patterns to fit girl sizes!
For example- Ernie sweater The smallest size is 40" chest. I would want to make maybe a 36" chest. So every 4" is about 8 stitches according to the pattern.
S (M, L, XL, XXL) 40 (44, 48, 52, 56)  and CO 94 (102, 110, 122, 130).
So, for a 36" chest, I'm thinking CO 86.
Ok, that's fine. But then when I would begin shaping I'm not sure how.
I guess trial and error works, and if I take close measurements for anyone for any sweater, and keep measuring while creating, it will be fine.
I guess I must be just looking for encouragement or something.
I've been knitting for a short while but still feel pattern-bound.

Funny, the one you said you didn't like that much is my favorite. I love the perspective.
Great job!

That is awesome!
I'm an elementary teacher, and I think that if you sent these photos to a publisher, they would be interested!
The poems are adorable, and I love the hands-on activities. You have a lucky kid!
5  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Post here, if u made or altered a skully sweater from Stitch n Bitch on: August 27, 2007 09:49:29 PM
i have finished the front and back, and just finished the 3 needle BO for one shoulder. then, the pattern says to PU 54 stitches for the collar with RS facing. does this mean the RS facing me, or each other? i can't exactly figure out how to do this, unless i have the sweater pieces next to each other, like conjoined twins, with the RS facing me. is this what i'm supposed to do?
otherwise, it seems like i'd have to use a circular needle, just to be long enough and flexible enough to get around.
i'm sure if i just try starting it the way it seems right (conjoined twins) it will make sense, i'm just worried about ruining anything i have already made.
this is my first sweater attempt. thanks for your help.

So cool! I love them. I've never used Mod Podge before. Will the shoes hold up in the rain? What about do the pictures lay pretty well on the shoes, or are there bumpy and texture problems?
Great work!!!

Thanks! I think I will get some extra cork and just try it first with different scrap fabrics I have piled up. If they work I'll get some extra random coasters for me!   Grin
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / patches to coasters- HELP on: December 17, 2006 08:07:00 PM
I found some patches that used to be my dad's old police patches. I was thinking of making them into coasters for Christmas. Is there some sort of liquid enamel I could brush on top and it would harden?
I'm not sure how to go about doing this, but it seems like an easy project if I have the right material. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm thinking of using decoupage medium, but I've never worked with it. Can it adhere a fabric patch to cork??

Wow, you have inspired me.
I started knitting a blanket as one of my first projects not realizing that it takes an ETERNITY to knit a blanket in garter stitch using size 8 needles.
Now I am set to finish mine.
Yours looks great, and I bet it's really comfy and soft.
