Finally got the pictures uploaded!

outside of the can, decorated with holiday images

top of can, says 'believe'

whole lot: a container with 'cookie soap,' an ornament/frame, gift tags, bottle of magnetic holiday words (which are awesome!)

close-up of the can with some of the words ( Cheesy ) and the ornament.

can was also filled with red and green jolly ranchers, but um....yea, they've been eaten!

4  rug/underneath dog dishes...what yarn/size needles to use? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by bamfknitter on: September 13, 2007 05:56:20 AM
Question for you knitters.

I've been using Sugar and Cream (love it) for dishcloths and stuff (I can't get enough of them), and the other day my boyfriend asked me to make his dog a mat for underneath his dog's (150 lb yellow lab) bowls b/c he has a tendency to track water everywhere and it leads to a muddy kitchen.  I jumped at the chance...but then realized I didn't know what kind of yarn would work best.  It would have to be something that could be thrown in the wash frequently.  Preferably something that came in blue and green (the dog has favorite colors  Roll Eyes ) And...I'm stumped on the needle size.  I have a couple different sizes...but obviously this is going to be a larger task than a dishcloth.

If anyone has any suggestions on yarn/brand names/needle sizes, I would be grateful!

5  Have an old cat calendar...what to do with it? in Discussion and Questions by bamfknitter on: July 29, 2007 11:23:53 AM
If this isn't in the right place, feel free to move, but my friend loves cats, but her mom is 'allergic' so she's not allowed to have one.  I found a (2005 or so) black and white cat calendar at a thrift store and want to do something neat with it instead of just sending it to her the way it is.  What do you all suggest? 
Here are some pictures? 
A portion of each of the corners got wet somehow (as you can see on the upper right), so I was thinking I'd have to cut it up somehow anyways.

6  how much fabric? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by bamfknitter on: July 07, 2007 08:27:21 AM
I'm wondering how much fabric I would need to make a bag like this (not exactly like this...but similar)...and I don't know if anyone has been to Target recently (I tried to look online, couldn't find a picture) but they have these slouchy/over the shoulder bags..kinda picture if I was taking this bag but making the straps wider and making it kind of 'new york style' (over the shoulder)

How much fabric would that be?

7  pattern...or help? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by bamfknitter on: June 15, 2007 07:46:48 AM
A friend made me a hobo-type bag out of a skirt a while ago, since I didn't know if my sewing skills were up to the task.

Another friend had found a great skirt at a thrift store that she said 'screamed my name one way or another.'  It wasn't my size, but this friend knew that she could make it into a bag.

I have the opportunity to perfect my sewing skills again, and I'd like to give it a try.  However, my mom is used to working off of patterns.  Is there anyway someone can give me a pattern (loosely or so) from the pictures below?  I'm going to scout around the 'net for more, and check out the fabric stores when I go later as well. 

Here is the bag laid out (ignore the mess)

Close up of the fabric b/c I really like it...and can't believe it used to be a skirt.

8  i thought i followed the pattern! what did i do wrong?? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by bamfknitter on: February 03, 2007 07:15:12 PM

I thought I followed the instructions

Cast on 37 stitches
knit 18 in stockinette
next row 1: with rs facing, *K9, K2tog, rep form * to last st, K1
Next row 2: work one row (that means knit it, right?)
Next row 3: *K7, K3tog, rep from * to end
Next row 4: work 1 row
Next row 5: *K5, K3tog, rep from * to end
Next row 6: work 1 row

Next row 7: *K2, K2tog, rep from * to end
Next row 8: *P1, P2tog, rep from * to end

break the yarn, leaving a long tail.  Thread the yarn through the remaining stitches. Pull up tight to create the crown and use the remaining yarn to sew up the hat.

---> pattern is from, "The Cool Girl's Guide to Knitting"

and just for fun (and a size gauge) here is my kitten wearing *MY HAT*
