1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / 100 Afghan Squares to Knit KAL on: November 30, 2006 08:38:53 AM
I'm working on my first afghan from this book, and it's a bit overwhelming because of all the pieces and the fact that I usually try to avoid grafting at all costs.

Is anyone interested in doing a knitalong based on the afghans featured in this book?
2  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Endless Loop Scarf from knitpicks.com on: July 03, 2005 12:07:50 AM
Knitpicks.com has a free pattern up for an Endless Loop Scarf. It's really really basic, but I thought it would be fun to see everybody's different results. Is anyone interested?

Here's the pattern:

Details of swap:

Basically make anything dealing with the sushi theme. No strict guidelines on what to make, just have fun with it! I would like most of the items in the package youre sending out to be made by you, but its okay to mix in some purchased items too if you wish.

Send MORE than just one item. I dont want to enforce a strict number because of the strain it can put on participants. If your crafts take more hours then its understandable if you send fewer items, but if you are making quicker items, then I encourage you to send more. I just want everyone to feel like the swap was fair.  Smiley

- send out ON or BEFORE ship out date

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Recommend a sewing machine? on: April 07, 2005 11:16:27 PM
Could you recommend a small sewing machine that isn't over $100 that works pretty well? Maybe the Brother Brother LS-2125? Or Simplicty Sew Precious?

Here's a link to the Sew Precious & the Brother LS-2125:

I know the general opinion is that the small sewing machines, such as Handy Stitch, aren't worth it. But these machines seems slightly sturdier. Other small machines run about $20 or less, but these are $50-80. I'm hoping that means better quality.

I'm a beginner when it comes to sewing, and don't have the money to invest in a more expensive machine. I'll be using it mostly to make cotton linings for my knitted bags, reconstructing tshirts, and other smaller projects. Maybe some wallets.

What do you guys think? Any opinions are appreciated. Thanks!  Smiley
7  Texas / Texas: Coastal / Yarn Stores in Houston on: April 14, 2004 12:14:41 PM
I'm a knitting newbie, and was wondering if anyone can recommend some good yarn stores in Houston. I generally go to Michaels and Walmart for yarn if I need to practice, but they only sell the metal yarn needles. So I thought I should invest in some wooden ones. Thanks!
