1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: What are YOU going to wear to 'Twilight'? on: November 20, 2008 04:18:38 PM

Smuckers9, I give you full credit for what I'm going to wear tomorrow. I AM SO WEARING ALL BLACK AND CARRYING AN APPLE! AHHH! =D

Thanks for the amazing idea! I was going to iron on a transfer on my shirt saying, "I drive like a Cullen", but this is an amazing idea!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re-creating the dress? on: November 10, 2008 10:51:49 PM
Hey Guys! A friend(I use the term loosely.. :-/ ) of mine was wearing a really cute dress the other day that looked totally simple enough to be my first dress(or any article of clothing) that I make completely from fabric that I can actually wear(other than a recon). I've never followed a sewing pattern before for an article of clothing. Anyways, here's the dress!

Now, the top looks like just a simple tank-top-type top(wow, try saying that five times fast), and the bottom like a simple pleated skirt thing...but I am at loss where to start with the measuring, ect. Are there any online patterns that look like this or anything? I really like this dress and I'd like to make it!

I am extremely grateful for anyone that is able to help me out! =D

No help for me?  Sad
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Long Loom Knitting Boards on: August 09, 2008 09:09:39 PM
Hi! I am thinking about investing in a wooden knitting board. I've purchased the Knifty Knitters ones, but I can't knit with Bulky yarn all of the time. I would like to be able to knit with different gauge yarns and such. I REALLY want to make a Harry Potter Trapped Bar scarf for the up coming(well, it's coming in November) HBP Release. I've knit a scarf on the knifty knitter long loom with bulky yarn, and it went by REALLY fast! I can probably knit faster on a loom than with needles, and I'd definitely love that if I'm going to knit a 6 foot long scarf.  Tongue

What size should I get? I'd like to be able to knit many things, maybe even a sweater some where down the line if I'm feeling brave. Mainly, I'll probably just be making scarves and maybe some handbags. What length should I get? Also, are there some great books I could pick up on knitting with a knitting board? Thanks a bunch. =]

I'm so joining as SOON as I get my mom's permission. She'll probably be a little weary about having our address on the internet. I have no problem with it, because I trust you guys, but how do you think I could convince her? Ursulaandolive, do you want to PM me or something, or I can PM you? Thanks! =]
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Harry Potter Forever? on: July 30, 2008 01:18:32 AM
I'm a first-timer, too, and I am completely obsessed with Harry Potter(The teaser trailer for HBP came out today, guys! Go check it out! It's amazing.)
I'd love to do this swap! I'm a slytherin in desperate need of some HP-items. =]

I've been bored all summer vacation, so I could definitely use this to occupy my time! :]

I would absolutely LOVE to knit that scarf,
but I am scared of the chart. like, do you
follow the chart only on the right side? or
the wrong side, too? eep! lol. I would be
totally up for it if I get my confidence up a
bit. Smiley

skellerz- haha. the first thing I said when I saw it was, ooh! he's cute! lol.

oh, and I love the scarf, too. I usually have really long scarves that double as a blanket on your legs. lol. but then I hate it when they get in the way, so maybe I should make one of these, too!

Your question is a great one! you pick up the stitches by knitting them on using the right needle.


that picture shows someone's needle in stitch, ready to be knit on. if you need anymore help, just ask! I am stuck on the second part, but I know how to pick up stitches! Smiley
