Hi! I can see this is an older thread, but I hope this may still be of interest. I just got 2 new books in the mail yesterday that look so yummy:

Sampler Workbook by Caroline Vincent (all cross stitch and/or needlepoint)
A Rainbow of Stitches by Anges Delage-Calvet (both cross stitch/needlepoint and regular embroidery)

The motifs in both books are really wonderful!!

Good luck, Katie

This is great! I'm reading a book right now that features H.P. Lovecraft as a character, so this is particularly timely for me. Thanks for sharing!

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Wishblade Questions on: December 05, 2007 10:33:53 AM
First, I hope this is the place to post this! Apologies if it is not. I have some questions for Wishblade owners:

1) Do you like your Wishblade? Do you often create/import your own art and cut it?

2) Does anyone use a Wishblade with a Mac? How does that work for you?

3) Anyone heard anything about the current problems with ordering the Wishblade right now?

I'm using garter stitch.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Matching decreases with increases? on: November 08, 2007 11:23:08 AM
I bought an a**-load of sugar and cream to make Xmas hand towels and dishcloths. That day, I see the fun bias-knit squares goin on over at masondixonknitting.com. An idea is born.

The problem:
When I try to make squares, they are not square. My decreases don't match my increases.

The Question:
Which increases go with which decreases? I've tried M1L with SSK and ended up with two sides that were too long. Pulling it into shape off the needles helped, but not enough to make it look decent.

Thoughts? Feelings?

I've started a test patch with Plymouth Yarns Encore worsted and I'm liking it a lot. It knits up warm and with a nice loft.

Do you say other than washcloths because you've already made one? Because I looove making hand towels, washcloths, etc. I use ombre Sugar N Cream or Peaches N Creme and just knit that s*** up in garter stitch. Perfect for the train, and the pretty colors keep it from being too boring. At the end I make a little braided strap so they can hang from a hook. And with a baby on the way, I can imagine that you'd use a lot of them!

Best wishes, by the way!

I'm facing this same decision right now! Here's what I've come up with:

I think I'm going to use either Plymouth Yarns' Encore worsted, or Cascase 220 superwash. I'm going to make a swatch of each and wash them to see how they'll knit up and wear.

I also might end up doubling up and using two strands, because my husband would like a heavy throw, and I don't like enough of the colors that Encore bulky or Lion Bran Woolease chunky comes in.

The advantage of the two yarns I listed above is that they both come in a lot of colors!
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Best sources for wool felt? on: September 17, 2007 01:14:48 PM
I'm looking for a good source for wool felt.

Does anyone know of:

  • A good online store?
  • A national retailer that sells good wool felt?
  • An independant store in the Boston area?

Thank you!
