1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting at a conference? on: October 09, 2008 06:00:50 PM
I am going to a medical conference this week to earn my CME's (continuing medical education credits)  It will be HOURS and HOURS of sitting and listening to lecturers - I'm wondering if it would be ok to bring a small knitting project with me?  Would that be considered to rude or extremely unprofessional?  I don't even really have to look much at what I am knitting....
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / My Yarn Stinks! on: January 30, 2008 05:19:36 AM
This isn't exactly a knitting question...but I just finished knitting a sweater out of Berroco Ultra Alpaca.  It is sitting out being blocked and my whole house now reeks of something akin to "wet dog" smell.  Because of the stench I handwashed the sweater once but it doesn't seem to have helped.  Has this happened to anybody else?  I mean I know this is an animal fiber but that doesn't mean it should stink does it?Huh?  Dry I didn't smell a thing but what if I get caught in an april shower in my sweater - I bet I would clear the room!
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Easter Card Idea for a guy on: April 01, 2007 12:33:34 PM
This is a card for all those boyfriends out there that don't care for the drippy cuteness of the usual easter card.  I unfortunately cannot post a picture, but the idea is this -
The top half of the front of the card has a drawing of a banner with sickeningly cute easter chicks and colored eggs with a hippity-happity spring message.
The bottomhalf says "How women decorate for Easter" (what's so great about all those easter chicks?)

Inside: Introducing the "guy's guy" Easter garland
and there is drawing of the same garland that was on the front, but in place of each little easter chick is a piece of fried chicken and where each colored easter egg is a fried egg.  I am actually also making up full size version of this "guy" easter garland so my boyfriend can decorate his computer desk. 
Anyway I hope this gives somebody some inspiration to make something really cute!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / "Olive You" stuffy on: February 04, 2007 07:22:28 PM
My first felt stuffy!  It is supposed to be a green olive with a red pimento ~ of course since it is for a Valentine present the removable beanbag pimento had to be made in the shape of a heart!!

I once saw a GIANT green olive pillow made out of green velvetine that was the inspiration for this little lovin' olive.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitty's Anouk on: January 22, 2007 07:44:32 PM
This is the "Anouk" design from Knitty.  The pockets I made turned out WAY to large so I chose to embroider a flower on the front. Also, rather then make the side tabs with buttons I just made some ties (the lazy way out!)

And being modeled by the cutest girl around!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted cupcake hat! on: January 22, 2007 07:33:29 PM
I just finished knitting this cupcake hat for my new little neiceling!  It is from the free pattern on Chile con Yarne http://rsveverka.com/chileconyarne/?p=25
The only change I made was to crochet the trim around the middle rather then to knit it.  It was easy, quick and cute!

What could be better then a baby with a cupcake on its head?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Debbie Bliss baby hat on: December 13, 2006 08:52:14 PM
This pattern was in the book Baby Style by Debbie Bliss - the pic in the book is super cute - mine  isn't quite a cute but I think once it is on a little adorable baby head it will look great. This pattern is worked flat and then sewn up the back and is an interesting construction.  Very easy - very cute!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I can't decide? Should I braid the scarf? on: December 12, 2006 03:08:18 PM
I knit three long skinny (about two inches wide) strips that I planned to braid together to form a scarf (as I saw in a Debbie Bliss pattern book sometime).  Now that they are done though I'm not sure the colors actually go together!  Maybe it would be better just to leave them as a collection of skinny scarves?  I am giving them as a Christmas gift and was wondering if anyone wanted to give me thier opinion.  And if I leave them as skinnies - should they be fringed or just left plain? Any ideas?

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fingerless gloves - Knitty's "Fetching" on: December 10, 2006 05:59:29 PM
I started this pair of handwarmers last evening, planning to work on them here and there throughout the next two weeks...after the first few rows though, I was addicted!  Here is the finished product - I am so proud I can't stop smiling whenever I see them  Grin This pattern is found in the Knitty Summer 2006 issue - wonderful!
