1  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. 

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Where or where has Eunny's blog gone? on: January 31, 2007 02:10:25 PM
It was bad enough to have gone over a month without an update - but now?  I can't get on the site at all?  I hope, I hope she's just changing servers or something...  Anyone have the inside scoop?  Huh
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What would -you- do with a bunch of rowan summer tweed? on: December 21, 2006 06:45:27 AM
I made a "cozy" (from Knitty) from a bunch of rowan summer tweed and have a good amt leftover.  It's kind of a funny yarn and I'm not sure what to do with it.  I've been thinking maybe an "argosy" scarf?  What would you do with this stuff?  It's a 70% silk, 30% cotton blend, gauge is 16st and 23 rows/4" on US8

Thanks!  Grin
4  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Anyone for Sarcelle? on: December 19, 2006 12:12:18 PM

I just ordered the pattern and my yarn (Handmaiden Sea Silk in Sangria) to make this little pretty.  I'll probably start after the holidays...  Anyone want to join in?  It's my first real lace project aside from Knitty's "Cozy".

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need some help! Prettyknit's Jackie O cardigan on: December 10, 2006 01:33:23 PM
Okay, I want to start on the Jackie O cardigan but I'm a little bit lost with the following abbrev.

k2 - b (knit sts in row below/prev)

I know this should be a no-brainer, but I can't seem to wrap my mind around this one.  And what does knitting the stitches "below" do, anyway?


ETA: I'm answering my own question, but just in case anyone was curious, I found http://www.maggiesrags.com/tips_knit_below.htmwhich gives a pretty good 'splanation.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / ssk's in entrelac on: November 12, 2006 06:26:15 AM
Hi all -

I was hoping someone could help me.  I'm making the knitty Danica scarf and everything is moving right along, but my ssk's on the 2 center squares look really loose and sloppy.  Any quick fixes for this?  It's my first entrelac and it's fun, but I really would like to redo it so there aren't those loose sections.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Mitten charts - need help! on: August 13, 2006 11:06:53 AM
First of all, I haven't knit from charts very often.  I bought the wonderful book "Folk Mittens", but I don't think I'm smart enough to figure out the charts.  There are two separate charts, one for the mitten body and one for the thumb and gore. How/when do you change from the body to the thumb?  Also, the chart has "missing" blocks, so it  kind of stair steps -  are these no stitch spaces, like in lace knitting (which I've never done, either)?  I feel like I should be able to figure this out on my own, but it's just not happenin'.  Thanks!
