1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Any stash management sites? on: December 02, 2009 08:32:47 PM
My name is Scotskipper, and I am a fabricholic.

Can anyone point me to a site like Ravelry for yarn (another weakness of mine) that helps one keep track of fabric and patterns in the stash, and a list of projects planned or cut out?

I need the help of some higher power.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / White House outreach to US! on: May 19, 2009 10:21:23 AM

No free yarn. (I checked) But a nifty post about the Obama administration talking about issues --in a LYS

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pet-Free swap? on: December 31, 2008 07:16:37 PM
Inspired by the Child-Free Swap, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=275437.0;topicseen, is anybody up for a Pet-Free Swap?

I am NOT against other people's pets, or companion animals, or fur babies. Just as I'm not against other people's babies.  They're just not for me.

anyone else out there with the same low tolerance for the ittle-precious cutie pies?
5  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Jane Austen's Knitting Book on: March 29, 2007 08:28:08 AM
Inspired by indie-knitters fabulous Mrs Darcy sweater in the thread

and how are you this evening....Mrs. Darcy? (message id #1616922)
in Completed Projects

Dang! I can't get the link to go live.

I speculated on what kind of knitwear other Austen characters might wear. And since Miss Austen's work is timeless, the patterns can go through time, too.

For Mrs Collins: a baggy saggy grey tweed cardigan. With maybe a rhinestone pin for dinner at Rosings.

Lady Catherine de Burgh would wear a floor-sweeping poncho in 15 different novelty yarns (imported, of course) with cables and lace knit on tiny needles.

According to Aunt Carrot, Aunt Norris (no relation!) would wear thrifted acrylic.

I think Aunt Norris would even wear thrifted acrylic CROCHET. (Sorry in advance to my hooking sisters.) But probably cashmere bed-socks, which nobody else could see or enjoy.

So -- what about other JA characters?

Jane Fairfax?
Jane Bennet?
Lydia Bennet? (that would be a one-skein wonder...)

Long cabled wool socks for Captain Wentworth to wear at sea

And what would you knit for Mr Darcy?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cardi pattern for jojoland varigated worsted? on: February 15, 2007 12:32:33 PM
I used my Xmas money for this divine yarn:

It's varigated, in loooong blocks of color. I'm thinking
vertical stripes or mitering
set-in sleeves?

Any pattern or design suggestions?

PS: Jojoland was so easy to deal with. I had a question, and Jojo her own self called me back!
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Calendar "slipcover"? on: December 04, 2006 02:21:23 PM
Last fall when I was in Paris Grin I bought a calendar as a souvenir. Rather than tossing it, I'd like to use it again for 2007.

Does anyone know a program to print out calendar pages to about 7" X 5"?

8  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Chanel jacket: knittable in novelty yarn? on: October 04, 2006 05:48:25 PM
My first original post. Hope it works out!

I saw this today on eBay. Check out the close-up pictures. This could totally be knit on biggish needles with novelty yarn:


Note they very thoughtfull tell you the yarn is 79% mohair, 19% wool, and 2% polyacrilicsomething. And the lining is poly/cotton mesh.

Essentially, it's a big-gauge sweater on a lace-y cotton lining with a mess of big loops.

Even if you paid $200 for the really good yarn, you'd still save enough to buy a good used car. You could use $50 of cheaper yarn, and get a decent sound system.
