1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: hi! and a question on: May 10, 2006 07:29:57 AM
I once had project that called for Paternayan and also had difficulty finding some. I finally resulted to ebay and found a lot of it (in lots of different colors) for $6.50... so you may want to keep checking ebay.

come to think of it, I never got around to that project so its all just languishing in my stash somewhere. I've got that book on my list so maybe I can put it to use when I finally give up on someone else buying the book for me for mother's day and just buy it myself!

okay, that's it! I have printed out the trellis pattern no less than 3 times but have yet to actually knit it. You've inspired me to take the leap finally.

How long did your's take?

Love the blue, by the way.

I agree, looks like worsted, maybe a heavier worsted, but not necessarily bulky... if that makes sense at all. The letters are definitely I-cord shaped into letters and stitched on...

Fabulous! Perfect color too! Did it take ages and ages? I've been looking at the merino style. I keep promising that I'll make myself a sweater... alas, I'm currently in sock hell... and it's the first of the pair  Undecided

Too cute! I'm addicted to felted bags right now. I love the green lining  Cheesy
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Spend on yarn vs. clothes on: February 21, 2006 08:26:21 AM
I'm such a bargain shopper when it comes to clothes. My goal is to spend $5.00 or less (unless we're talking shoes)... I'll do $10.00 if it's something fabulous... and pretty much only spend more if it's for something special. Don't get me wrong, I have some fantastic clothing, I just buy it on clearance.

Now.. yarn is another story entirely. I just spent $32.00 on two rather smallish skeins of Kureyon Big without thinking twice... then there's my weakness for Lantern Moon needles. But hey, I'm not a yarn snob.. I'll use acrylic/inexpensive yarn, depending on what I happen to be making. I check the Hobby Lobby ad every week and will wait around for a sale on what I want.
Oh... and Knit Picks and I are close, personal friends. Wink
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cool pompom scarf... any ideas? on: February 09, 2006 12:26:43 PM
Actually, last time I was in Joann's I noticed yarn with little pom poms...however, I'm fairly sure it was only available in candyish pastels. My first thought was "my god that would be a bitch to work with"... of course, the second thought was "oh, but it'd be so cute!"

"hello, ignore my bloody fingers and hairless head... isn't my scarf fabulous??"

Oh sweet jesus... I too adore a guy with an Edward Norton, American History X vibe. We must share an affinity for crazyesque men with shaved heads who seriously need a good anger managament course.

Oh, I did notice the sweater first. American History X Ed would so beat that guy up.

Now that I've somehow accumulated a feral kitten and she's somewhat acclimated to living indoors I so need to make one of those for her.

Not to mention her orange brother who is still outside but is slowly warming up to me...
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: irritating comments on: June 22, 2004 06:54:20 PM
I crochet, knit, and embroider and get the "old lady" comments all the time... then again I am 30, so in comparison to you all....

I'm also often called a nerd, weird, odd (actually, I'm the only person I know that actually uses the word "odd")... then again I work in a high school and all the kids beg for the beanie hats made by my nerdy, slightly-off, old self.

of course, I don't take many of their comments to heart since they also make fun of me for reading....

the one that drives me nuts is, "you have way too much time"... No, I just know how to spend the time that I have  Smiley
