11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / your first ever FO? on: February 24, 2007 08:44:43 PM
O.k. all you knitting 'xperts,  what was the very first item that you knitted and finished?  Did it turn out how you planned?  Do you still have/use it?
12  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / your first handspun knit project on: February 16, 2007 08:47:42 PM
I have a hank of my handspun yarn hanging there in my closet, begging me to knit everytime I open the door.

So, show me what you knit/crochet with the first yarn that you spun?
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / repeat rows in pattern? on: February 07, 2007 01:57:30 PM
O.k.  For an example pattern:

Row 1 - K
Row 2 - K (P2K2) across
Row 3 - P
Row 4 - P (k2P2) across

Repeat rows 1-4 a total of 18 times.

Here's the question,  do the first 4 rows that I knit count in the eighteen, or do I knit those rows THEN repeat 18 more times for a total of 19 rows?

You'd think I'd know this by now.  Thnx.
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Multi-purpose pillows on: January 26, 2007 04:02:06 PM
I made these pillows to use in our travel camper. The fabric is leftover upholstery fabric that I used to redo trailer curtains,  (I don't like the colors now but it hasn't been long enough to redo them yet,)  and the buttons are antique from my collection.  They look and function as a couch pillow.  But....instead of regular pillow stuffing, they hold a tightly folded twin-size blanket.  Perfect for a small camper, or dorm room, or anywhere you might need to hide an extra blanket.

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knit, then felt, then embroider? on: January 12, 2007 08:14:43 AM
My goal is a felted bag with some wicked embroidery on it.  Is it possible to embroider after the bag has been felted, or should I embroider first with an acrylic thread that won't felt?

I think it should be the first, but want to check with you guys first for advice.

Edit: Sorry...this should have been in Questions....
16  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / skein photography on: December 29, 2006 04:16:58 PM
So many of you take such great pics of your skeins.  What camera/lens do you use?  Do you use photobucket or flickr or what to host your pics?
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How do you wear your hats? on: November 30, 2006 04:59:08 PM
O.k. dumb question:  I'm from Texas.  We don't have many cold days, but when we do, I want to take full advantage and wear some of the rocking hats I've knitted.  Here's my question for you who live in the cold - how do I wear them?  If I wear a hat on the way to work, my hair will invariably be completely smuched down.  Do I pull it into a tight ponytail for the rest of the day?  Do I re-fix it after I'm at work?  What do you do?

Please hurry with your answers, because by the time you've posted, the cold front will have probably passed.  Wink
18  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / bulky plying with lazy kate and drop spindles on: November 19, 2006 07:23:12 AM
I need advice. How do I ply using a LKate and drop spindles?  I can do it, but my spindle fills up quickly and then I have breaks in my yarn when I have to unroll it and put it on a boobin.  How do yall solve this problem?  thnx, Jill
19  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / tips for spinning angora? on: November 11, 2006 08:07:25 PM
Yeaaaayyyy!  I just brought home two adorable, cuter-than-should-be-allowed Angora rabbits.  I groomed them a little and then spun it just to get a feel.  But, I'm having trouble predrafting, I guess.  My drafting gets thick b/c I can't  seem to get it thin - it's always sticking to my fingers - like plastic wrap.  Any tips?

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / suggestions for scratchy Shetland? on: November 05, 2006 01:55:37 PM
I've got some Shetland wool that I've recycled from a sweater and redyed, but it's scartchy, scratchy, scratchy.  I don't want to throw it out.  any suggestions on what I could do with it?
