1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: What Are These Ball Chain Connectors Called? on: April 24, 2009 12:09:36 AM
Hi does anyone know what the name is for the following ball chain clasps/connectors and anywhere online that sells them. I live in the UK and I am finding it hard to locate them as I do not know what the proper name for them is.

Here you go: http://www.mailorder-beads.co.uk/STS-necklace-findings.html - hopefully the necklace ends/clamshells on that page will do the trick, or failing that you could drop the shop a line and see if they can help? Smiley

just got back from seeing this - now I get what everyone means!

I think Hermione's Gryffindor sweater looks like it's ribbed but with some cables (fine ones, about the same width as the ribbing) down the sleeves and also down the front. Very cute!

Luna's Ministry cardigan *looks* hooded to me, but with that hair it's anyone's guess really. Either way it's fab!

Not sure I can help you with the hook size, but the yarn looks something like Rowan Biggy Print: http://www.knitrowan.com/html/yarns_results_new.asp?groupcode=14&weight=null&spec=null&guage=null, to me.

There might be others which look similar, though!

5 st/in makes it 20/4in, so yes, I'd say that's a DK/light worsted.

As for whether there's enough for a top - I wouldn't have thought you could get a long sleeved top from that amount (unless you were very petite, maybe), but you may be able to get a short sleeved top or a tank from that amount, depending on size, neckline, stitch pattern etc. This site might help as a rough guide, although it's estimating based on a higher necked long-sleeved garment:


I think I read somewhere that long sleeves take up about 1/3 of the total yarn of your garment - does anyone have any idea if that's vaguely true?

Ok, now I'm hungry! Weirdly I would never have thought of having tofu raw before, so I'll definitely have to try this.

Oh, I love that - I've been on the lookout for lacy boleros as they're so useful for spring/summer, too! Yours looks fab Smiley
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: color question on: April 28, 2007 03:06:39 AM
What a great idea - it'll be a perfect summer dress!

It depends a bit on the fabrics you use, and I'm not an expert, but I think either vanilla or chocolate in the middle - darkest or lightest colour in the centre, basically. I think that would draw the eye in nicely.

Unless maybe you altered the pattern so there were more but thinner stripes of each colour and you could put brown (ie, darkest) stripes on either side so they frame you? Darker shades as a frame is a classic flattering trick for most shapes - the eye then focuses on whatever's inside the frame.

Koshka - your sweater is beautiful! Did you do something different with the neck border?  I was just looking at Soft Lux and thinking of this pattern, just a few minutes before I saw your post because it's on sale at yarn.com (I still haven't started the SKB but STILL plan to!).  From your blog, I take it you liked the yarn?

Thanks Smiley Not too much different with the neckline, actually - I just did 20 rather than the 15 rows of purl ridges suggested for my size to make it a little wider and the v not quite so deep.

The soft lux is lovely! Not so much stitch definition, though, because of the angora fuzz so if that would bother you it's probably not the best one to choose. I like it, though - it's very soft and warm.

Everyone's skb is looking really good!

It seems I'm a bit of a rubbish KAL participant - I posted way back when I cast on and then promptly found myself without camera until it was almost finished! Here's the end product, anyway:

There's a few more details on my blog Smiley

Oh, it looks great! I've had this pattern for ages and not found quite the right yarn for it - I might have to look into the cash iroha now Wink
