1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Keri Russell Sundance Hat on: February 19, 2007 04:35:05 PM
So I love, love, love Keri Russell's hat.

It looks really simple.  I'm assuming I just cast on a larger amount than "normal" and then work in 1x1 rib for about 10 inches?  Then probably k2tog for a more rapid decrease than a regular cap?

Basically I'm looking for a little confirmation before I delve in  Grin
2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Kitty hat seed stitch question on: February 25, 2006 04:06:49 PM
Maybe this is just in my head, but the instructions say to cast on 84 stitches and then work in seed stitch... if you're knitting the hat in the round shouldn't it be an odd number of stitches for seed stich? Otherwise I'll end my first round on a purl and start the next round on a purl, won't that make a band on the seed stitch portion that doesn't match?   Huh
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / easy flat stocking pattern on: December 06, 2005 10:38:43 AM
Okay, I feel like this should be on the boards somewhere, but I've searched and searched and cannot find what I'm looking for.  I was hoping to knit a stocking, just two flat pieces and sew them together, no turning of heels or DPNs or what-have-yous  Grin
something along these lines:

I can figure out the striping, letters or whatever I need for within the pattern, I just don't know how to make the shape?  can anyone help me out, or point me in the right direction?
4  CANADA / Ontario / toronto Craigslist - Fashionista <?> wanted on: May 13, 2005 11:36:14 AM
it says it's for a "fashionista", but I think they're talking about folks who sew up their own duds... "Can you convert old dingy clothes into something special? Are you confident and skilled at the art of sewing?"
It's for some sort of new TV show.

It says reposting this message is not okay, but I really think this is more of their target market, so I"m just trying to help out Smiley

6  CANADA / Ontario / Toronto craft fair on: September 04, 2004 07:50:05 PM
alright, I'm seriously considering organizing a craft fair for craftsters in the Toronto area.  First I need to see if there is enough of an interest in this, and second I need suggestions for venues. 

I looked into the north building at St. Lawrence market, but they have strange hours, either 8am - 4pm or 5pm - 1am.  Plus with the farmer's market on saturday it cuts down on availabilty. 

Also my friend had a jewellery launch at The Church at Berkeley and it seemed like a nice place, however i'm not sure about the parking situation, and that can be important for customer traffic.
Any other suggestions?

8  CANADA / Ontario / Toronto Fabric Stores on: July 16, 2004 08:54:01 PM
hey guys,
I found this page and thought i'd pass it along to my fellow torontonians <sp?>


It lists various places to find fabric in the area, the type of fabric in certain stores, what the sales staff is like, etc. etc. 

I'm not sure how current the info is as I haven't checked any of it out, and I mostly buy my fabric on ebay  Grin
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / beaded candles on: July 11, 2004 10:52:22 AM
I just saw the coolest thing on while you were out (this is probably a repeat  Tongue)
To fancy up some candles she laid out a tray of tiny beads and then heated the outside of a candle with a hair dryer and rolled it in the beads.  It was very pretty Smiley
i'm sure it's probably an old idea, but i'd never thought of it, so i thought i'd put it here in case others were interested.
