11  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crochet boots on: January 15, 2006 08:42:38 PM

According to People magazine, these are now officially trendy, the new Ugg, now that Sienna Miller's been spotted wearing them. Who's going the first on craftster to reproduce one?
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help with American Doll sweater on: January 15, 2006 10:46:42 AM
Somebody please help! I am doing the sleeves and coming to the caps. I have 25 stitches. As I understand the directions, a total of 4 stitches are decreased (one stich at each end every other row twice), but now I'm suppose to have 15 stitches. How am I reading this wrong? I would appreciate any help. Dolls clothes are great knitting projects for those of us when we need instand gratification! That is, if you can understand the directions.

Here are the directions:


Cast on 16 sts.

K1, P1 ribbing for 4 rows. Purl next row, increasing 3 sts evenly (19 sts).

Work in st st, increasing 1 st each end of the needle every 5th row, 3 times (25 sts). Work until 5 inches from the beginning (37 rows of st st).

Shape cap
Decrease 1 st each end of the needle, every other row, 2 times (15 sts). Work 4 rows even. Decrease 1 st each end of the needle, every row, 3 times (9 sts). Cast off 2 sts at the beginning of the next 2 rows (5 sts). Cast off.
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knit1- men edition on: November 25, 2005 06:26:11 PM
Has anyone seen it? What do you think? I wasn't thrilled with a lot of the stuff in there, but they had some very nice 'manly' scarves. I also liked their suggestions for doing surgery on finished garments and adding knitting to them. I was disappointed in the men knitters they chose to profile as most of them were already in the artistic/creative fields like designers, yarn shop owners and dancers. I thought they should have featured what most would think of as atypical knitters like Marines and lawyers and engineers and firefighters. We know they're out there!
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / ssk question on: November 01, 2005 08:34:13 AM
Now, are you supposed to slip the stitches p-wise or k-wise? I've read different directions for it, one even said slip p-wise for one stitch and slip k-wise for the second stitich. Does it make a difference in how the pattern turns out?
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Family Circle Easy Crochet magazine on: October 05, 2005 08:29:52 PM
Has anyone seen this magazine? I saw it unexpectedly at the LYS and had to get it. It has some really fun and hip and elegant  patterns. I particularly like the capelet and matching cloche which I made in about three hours today. They used a lot of Paton yarns for their projects and maybe because of the yarn, the pieces did not look like usual crochet. Anyway, it's worth checking out.

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / careful when buying knitting books on: September 09, 2005 10:10:17 PM
Yesterday I bought the Lion Brand Just Hats book from Borders book store and when I was looking through it today I noticed someone had ripped out pages from it for particular patterns. The thing is, I did not buy the 'display' book I looked at at the store but a nicer, never-handled looking one. So when buying a knitting book, make sure all the pages are still in it because some *jerk* knitter might have swiped some patterns. Luckily, I can exchange the book, but it got me so spitting mad that someone, a fellow knitter no less, would deface a book and basically steal.
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / purse from Junior Knits on: July 31, 2005 07:46:52 PM
I made this for a birthday present for my daughter's friend and I was too pressed for time to embellish it. The pattern is from Junior Knits by Debbie Bliss. The outside and the lining are all knitted in one piece. You just seam the sides and one end with the wrong sides together, then pull it to the right side through the handle hole and voila!

18  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / caterpillar toy on: July 08, 2005 07:38:14 PM
I found the pattern for this caterpillar in an old Woman's Day magazine. It's cute, but it's got kind of a diabolical smile. Hope it doesn't freak out the little baby it's intened for!

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rebecca Tank on: July 08, 2005 07:29:30 PM
I got the pattern from Rebecca magazine #23 and I used Bernat Baby Softee, which in hindsight is way too thick for this project. It's too big for me, especially as I've no bosom to represent, so it'll have to go to a friend. Got to do short rows though.


20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help with a Rebecca tank pattern please! on: June 29, 2005 05:56:48 PM
I'm working on the black ribbed tank(20) from Rebecca #23. I'm working on the bodice which is worked crossways in short rows. I've done short rows but I'm stumped by this one particular line. Please interpret the bold part for me!

Cast on 24 and work in rib patt, starting 1st WS row with edge st., P2. Cont with short rows, turning on a yarn-over each time and on foll row K or P yarn-overs tog with foll st. Work 3 in patt, turn and work back, work 5 in patt, turn and work back, etc, etc....

I don't get what they mean with the yarn-overs. Thanks for any help!
