1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: felted coasters for mother's day on: May 07, 2008 06:32:26 PM
I don't know if this is helpful.. but I've made coasters from SWS before and the color changes are more apparent than you would think for a small project.. well I think so anyways.. lol  I crocheted mine.. but it would probably look similar if knitted...

before felting:

after felting:

Can't wait to see what you come up with! It'd be great to see a different design for coaters... I've been wanting to make more for some friends.  Smiley

I love all the coils everyone seems to be doing lately.. they look so much fun!

I especially like your super squooshy yarn jazzturtle!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question about knitting with impaired vision? on: February 25, 2008 04:31:10 PM
I work at an optometrists office and we have a lot of low vision patients that knit. Some do it by feel, and others use low vision aids to help see the stitches. There are lots of daylamps and magnifying aids that are really helpful for them.

But then again I don't know how bad your vision is and how much use you're getting out of both your eyes so I don't know if those would be helpful?

I find that the more I knit, the easier it is to not have to look down so much.. I''ve been trying to learn how to knit by feel just so I can pay more attention to people and actually watch tv while I'm knitting... I also think those lighted needles would be helpful for seeing stitches as well.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Band tee to cute halter top.. 1st tee recon! on: January 06, 2008 12:27:10 PM

i just met them a few weeks ago. they were at up or on the rocks after the wccc ho ho ho-y xmas at the webster and all the webster folk went there so we did too. apparently i've seen them maaannny times before, years ago at local shows that are so underground it's almost invite only.

i love the shirt! i hate orange, but whatever, it's hot! the black siding is perfect to compliment the lettering. i was searching "band" in recons for ideas so i can cut up n wear my favorite local band's shirts: look west, pullout method, and forline orphans.

aren't they awesome? I've met them and I've hung out with Jeff(one of the guitarists) and Jimmy(the drummer) a few times... They're great guys! And it's red.. but my camera doesn't pick up the colors well.. lol I hate orange too... I'm hopefully going to go see them play at the Bodog Battle of the Bands show in Boston on the 19th... I hope they get enough votes!

wow.. thanks for the tut!

I have one question though.. Are you sewing just the scraps together? or are you sewing them to the piece of muslin?

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knittin' for the kitten on: October 02, 2007 06:10:49 PM
He'll probably be fine or just find someplace warm to curl up.. my kitties get underneath my covers and blankets all the time when I'm not home and the temp is set to a bit lower than comfortable.

Although I have to admit, I've stufffed both of mine into sweaters before.. lol They didn't try to get them off, they just crouched down really low and walked around like that for a while. It was pretty funny. But err.. yeah.. I don't think kitties like sweaters too much. Blankets or a snuggly kitty bed would be wonderful though. Cheesy
