1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sock Wars--have you seen this? :) on: August 01, 2006 02:31:07 PM
Check out http://yarn-monkey.blogspot.com/2006/07/are-you-ready-for-sock-wars-2006.html

The gist of the game is that you race your "target" to knit a pair of socks.  If you get them your socks first, they're "dead" and they mail you their semifinished pair plus the name of their target, and on and on.  Last one "living" gets a prize.  (Everyone else gets the socks that killed them. Smiley )

It's like knitting Assassins! Smiley Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Citrus bag on: July 14, 2006 01:34:37 PM

My own pattern, per my sister's instructions (she wanted a bag shaped like an orange).
Yarn:  Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky, doubled; remnants of brown and green knitpicks yarn
This is the first thing I've felted!  It was a lot of fun to make and pretty quick.  (That I-cord though...yeesh it took forever Smiley )

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pattern for leaf? on: July 01, 2006 02:11:03 PM
Does anybody know a good pattern for a stand-alone leaf?  (One that would look okay with citrus fruit?)  I'm making an orange-shaped bag for my sister and need to make a leaf for the top.   I know there's one in "Knitted Embellishments," but the library doesn't have it and thirty bucks is a little pricey for a book.  Thanks!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Felting knitted bags on: June 20, 2006 12:08:29 PM
I'd like to knit and felt a bag for my sister, but I've never felted anything before (not even by accident!).  I have a couple of questions:

--About how much does knitted stuff shrink when you felt it?  (I need to estimate how much yarn to buy and how big to knit the bag)  I'm planning to use Lamb's Pride Bulky wool, but I could also use worsted weight wool if that works better.

--I saw a pattern that said you shouldn't let the felting stuff go through the spin cycle on the washing machine, but I'm at a dorm and the washing machine locks through the entire cycle.  What happens if your felted stuff goes through the spin cycle?  Is it going to get ruined?

Thanks for your help!
