1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Ball Winders? on: October 12, 2006 09:00:59 AM
I really want to get a ball winder, but the 2 listed at Joann.com seem to have problems with quality - based on reviews.  I've looked everywhere locally.  For those of you that use them, which ones are the best?  Thanks!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Best place online to buy Trekking yarn? on: October 04, 2006 11:29:11 AM
I've found it several places.  Looking for places that offer discount codes or free shipping or something.  =)  I've bought it from littleknits before but the shipping is pretty high - $10 - $12.50
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need help finding a child's sweater pattern on: September 28, 2006 07:47:18 AM
Looking for something worked in the round - preferably a free pattern.  In a size 4/4T.  Unisex or Boy.  I've looked at all my usual haunts and haven't seen anything.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I need to crank out a sweater in the next 10 days or so.  =)  Thanks!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What to make for someone you don't like very well? on: September 20, 2006 07:03:24 AM
I know it's an odd question, but this year I'm making everyone's (except my children's) christmas presents.  This includes my dad's wife - my stepmummy - of a few years.  She's alright and I don't hate her but I don't particularly like or have anything in common with her. 

So, what would you make for someone like that?  I don't want to make something too labor intensive but I do want to make something that looks like a little thought and time went into it.  She's kinda "rough" if that makes any sense at all.  I wouldn't go so far as to say she's trashy, but she's walking the edge.   Wink
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / A butt-load of yarn and never anything to start a project? on: September 19, 2006 02:30:29 PM
I have a scary stash.  And I don't normally by onesies twosies either.  I have enough of quite a few things to make sweaters.  Problem is, I can never find anything to make.  Is there anyplace online where you can search for patterns by yarn weight or gauge or anything?

For example - I bought some Plymouth Fantasy Naturale with the sole purpose of making a toddler sweater.  Now, I can't find a pattern.  I've looked through tons of my books.  Skimmed dozens of websites....  Any suggestions?

PS - Fantasy Naturale is:
18 sts / 4 inches
Size 8 needles
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted Kureyon Handbag - First FO Xmas Gift! on: September 18, 2006 10:53:37 PM
I'm really pleased with the way this turned out.  It really didn't felt up as much as I would have liked, but after about an hour in the washer I said screw it.  I ended up using a suede-like purple lining to firm it up some.  I unintentionally modified the pattern.  The handle part was supposed to be worked in the round, which would have made it stockinette - I didn't read that part and worked it back and forth - which made it garter.  Oh well, I'm still happy with it and hope my sis will like it.  I can't remember the colorway I used.  It took 3 skeins.  1 for the handle.  1 for the front and 1 for the back.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Half-Assed FOs (Is there a support group for this?) on: September 18, 2006 10:47:55 PM
For some reason, I can only do 1 of anything.  I say - "I'll do this one, then one of another then go back and do the match for the first" - but I end up moving onto something else.  Anyone else like this?  I really need to finish these up because these would make some nice gifts, I think.  =)  Well, except for the socks, which are for my little guy.

Someone on craftster posted a pattern for these.  Love 'em.  Done in Caron Simply Soft Shadows.

Done in SWTC Karaoke Mermaid Mix

Done in SWTC Karaoke Intensity

Done in Moda Dea Sassy Stripes (I think the color is Lucky, or Crayon)
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Working on my 1st sweater and need a little help/support, please on: September 14, 2006 04:59:39 PM
It's super easy, but I'm doubting myself the whole way.  I started small - a sweater for my 4 year old.  Here is the pattern:


On the "Sleeves" part:
When it comes to descreasing as for raglan armhole shaping for back - just do the dec on either side like I do for the back?  For some reason that doesn't make sense to me.

On the "Finishing" part:
Set in raglan sleeves - what does that mean?

Thank you!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Rowan Denim Yarn Sub? on: September 12, 2006 09:02:11 AM
I'm looking for a sub for Rowan Denim that I can get just about anywhere.  I'm in a hurry and don't have time to order online.  I have quick access to Wal-Mart, Meijer, Hobby Lobby and Michaels.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Organization for Circulars? on: September 06, 2006 09:50:13 AM
Wondering how everyone deals with their circular situations?  I am a freak about organization and I'm going nuts here.  Straights and dpns are easy.  I've got my yarn stash under control - but have no idea what to do with my circs.  I like them to be tucked away but easily accessible and to be able to pick out the right needles quickly.

I was considering a dayplanner type thing and just getting more pockets.
