521  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Woman's Hoodie from Knitting To Go on: June 15, 2006 02:10:19 PM
Lovely jumper! I'm absolutely puce with envy.

I like the simple shape of it and the colour of the yarn really suits it.

Dang. That's neat. I thought it looked 'okay' in the book, but seeing it on your hand gives it added 'oomph', because it's 'real', you know what I mean?

YOur g/f is great for allowing you to 'mooch' off her account, and it's grand that you did such a fantastic job!

Absolutely smashing.

Knit while watching telly, especially a really boring movie.

The knitters I know do try to do some small projects in between the big ones, like knitting a small scarf or oddity or something. I normally have two knits on the go, so if I get bored of the hard slog on one, I tend to switch to the other.

You've gotten this far, so keep on going. Think of how envious us craftsters will be when you're modelling your blue cardy!

Go get 'em, tiger!"=]

You go, girl.

Stitch and Bitch Knitting really made the knitting 'click' for me. It's a very good reference book, and I remember how I literally glowed when I did my first bind off for my garter stitch scarf.

Soon you'll be knitting up a storm. It's a grand hobby to get into, just grand.
525  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: More Mrs. Beetons, warm and cozy! on: June 10, 2006 01:38:37 PM
Waaah! I want them too.

I have a confession to make: I've bookmarked the site since the pattern was first posted, went out and bought some noro and kidsilk mohair to make 'em - and I haven't started anything.


ETA - good effort, by the way. I'm very charmed by it. Your mum must be dead chuffed. I would be.

*sighs dreamily, twirling my hair around my finger*

One day. One day.

I still need to tackle fair isle and intarsia.
527  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: bottle of booze, intarsia-style on: May 30, 2006 12:06:40 PM

I love this version of intarsia! I do hope you were compensated handsomely for it, because that is artistry.

Hats off to you me darlin'.
528  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: frosted cupcake on: May 30, 2006 05:35:27 AM
Love the outcome!

Sorry to be a bother, but which size did you do? I'm 33" on the bust, and 36" would swamp me! Or did you find the yarn to be stretchy? I know that cotton tends to sag after a while, so I'm wondering.

I so want to do this top for myself, but I'm still stumped by the joins for the Garden Scarf pattern!
529  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Garden Scarf Problem Decifering Instructions on: May 30, 2006 05:07:47 AM
Oh, thanks for that. I've been having the same problem with the stitch 'joining' as well, and the colour changes aren't as clear as they could be.

Thank you. Will redo and report.
530  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: New to sewing clothes ... where to start? on: May 10, 2006 02:16:02 PM
I'd recommend buying a good sewing book (or getting it from the library), like Sewing for Dummies and just having a leisurely read.

Also, if you can look at someone assembling a pattern that would be good too, in the sense of seeing it moving from the package, to pinning, to assembling.

Good luck! Smiley
