I'm in, but it may take me a little while to get started.  I think I'm going to do a seamless yoke sweater for my daughter, but lengthen it to a sweater dress now that fall is around the corner...

I love this!  I can't believe you figured out the pattern and executed it so well.  Totally hit "this rocks" on this one...

As an aside, my daughter's (she's 1 1/2) name is Mairen, and I just about flipped out when I heard that was the character's name on the show.  Didn't think it was that popular...

This post made me realize that I should get cracking just 3 months before I need to get this stuff shipped - ack!

For my dad - the tartan scarf from the latest rowan
sister - probably socks and a scarf or a hat and a scarf
mom - nantucket jacket from last winters IK

And I'm planning on making those hemp open knit market bags to package the handknits in along with a CFL lightbulb and maybe a terrapass (to offset carbon emissions) - because I'm a nerd like that!

Wow, that looks great.  I've done all of 2 squares of mine (in Silk Garden).  And that was back in Feb or something.  Great job!

  Sadly, my pattern was not picked to be included in the July issue. 

Hey!  You tricked us!  Congratulations!
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Sewing with minky on: August 04, 2007 08:50:35 AM
Hi everyone -

I am brand, brand new to sewing so forgive my ignorance.  I want to make a floor cushion for my daughter - minky on one side and cotton twill on the other.  Any tips for sewing with minky?  If it's going to be a pain, I'll just get a different fabric, but I think she would love the minky.

I love this - yours turned out so great!  Was the ripping/re-knitting due to how the pattern was written? 

Great job!

I am also working on a lizard ridge and had never managed to do short rows successfully.  I was pointed to a great explanation of short rows and different techniques for them on the web.  If you are interested go to


 and scroll down until you see "Japanese short rows" .  That is the last part of a 3 part posting to Nona's blog on short rows.

Personally, I have found that the Japanese short rows work for me as the safety pins make it easy to find the place where you need to do something to close the gap.

Good luck,


Hi everyone - I just started my lizard ridge and will be adding blocks as budget allows.  Anyway, the yarnover short row has been working out great for this project - it's quick, easy to see where you k2tog and looks invisible.  There's a tut on nona's blog for the yo short row method, too.

Love seeing all these lizard ridges!

My favorite method for doing short rows in the round...

I'm usually pretty "meh" about summer issues in general, but I thought this one was quite good; I liked it much better than the spring issue. Sleeveless tuxedo shirt, blouson, notre dame de grace, little smocked cardigan, syncopated caps, lace blouse, montego bay scarf and the boot socks were all great, for me, anyway.  I am so excited to see the next issue under Eunny's direction.   Grin
