Very, very cool. It looks like something for sale in a totally chic store.

I still have a billion handouts from when I took Japanese, you totally inspired me.  Smiley

Hahahah, I would love to walk into a craft store and see an elderly lady buying fabric like that.

Wow, you're right. That fabric totally is The Shins. So weird! I wonder why that is.

I love the skirt by the way. I'd totally wear it if I'd ever be daring enough to wear a skirt above the knees. Smiley  I've nearly flashed people while wearing ankle length skirts somehow.

Mannn! I can't stand those yarn bitches (as I tend to call them). When I was in high school my knitting club advisor was one of those, disparaging my "cheap" yarn choices (I like Wool-Ease just fine) and all that. Those people are nuts, no matter how long you knit or how good you become they'll stay the same. Don't worry about them, they're just insecure. There are lots and lots of really great people out there, who understand everyone really can't afford that expensive yarn and will help/encourage you along with your knitting.

About yarn choice, I usually like it if it has at least some natural fiber in it although there are some really great yarns that are surprisingly purely acryllic. I started out on Red Heart Supersaver skeins, now, lemme tell you, that's the definition of a bad yarn at least for me. If you feels like you're knitting plastic, it's uncomfortable, and just doesn't look the greatest. However, it's very cheap and some projects it may be best for. I'm trying to bust all my Red Heart I still have with thigh high stockings, which are working suprisingly well despite my hate for the yarn. So whatever works I suppose.

You'll be better able to judge good yarn with experience, but for now just go with what looks good to the pocket, eyes and touch. It'll come.

Yeah, they are. I just thought it looked in the picture that they weren't stockinette.

It looks like there are ridges of purls on the cable, at least on the side that crosses in front. It's so hard to see what's up, but it looks like you might be working the cable section in garter stitch (knit one row then purl one row while working in the round)? It looks really nice besides that.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: BewbsLOL Nintendo DSlite cozy on: January 22, 2007 09:44:01 AM
I just had the most awful idea of making a bra for the cozy (for the sake of going out in public, of course)... think that's going overboard?

There's a little strip of red skin between my thumb and first finger from the crochet needle. I better wait for it to go down a little before doing anymore!

Hahahahah! Awful? That's amazing! I want a DS Lite case that needs a bra to avoid public nudity. Then again, you could just have a nudist DS . . . that wears a cozy. I'm not quite sure how that works out, but bra or no it's awesome.
