12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / False princess seams on a sweater knit in the round? on: July 26, 2005 03:31:43 AM
I'm currently making this:


and have opted to do so in the round. This is the first sweater with shaping that I've done in the round and I'd like to somehow give it princess seams or at least the illusion of princess seams while still doing all the necessary decreases/increases. I've come across a few references to slipping sts on the non-dec/inc side of stitch markers in order to create the illusion of a seam, but I've never done something like this before and am sort of lost.

Anyone want to walk me through this or point me to somewhere online that will do so?

Please? Undecided
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Anthropologie Fall 2005 knits on: July 07, 2005 02:07:04 AM
I'm looking through the new 2005 collection on anthropologie.com and there are a TON of absolutely gorgeous knits on there. The really neat thing is that you can zoom way in and see crisp details of the stitch patterns, piece shapes, everything. Anyone want to help me figure out patterns for some of them?
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / I've finished my workroom. Well, almost. on: April 21, 2005 05:46:21 PM
Pictures are worth all sorts of words:

I would like some aubergine curtains, but other than that I think it's done.
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I love this shirt but I need to make it into something I will wear. on: March 15, 2005 12:29:06 AM
Soooo....I love Nightwish to death. I have only this one of their shirts, and it has the most gorgeous screenprint on it, but it's also, like, a XXXL and crappyass sleeves and I shall therefore never wear it.

Any ideas what I should make it into? My personal style is rather executive goth with some 40s thrown in.

Oh, and the print is BIG. We're talking like 20" square. It seems a bit of a shame to mangle it, so ideas that involve keeping it intact, please.
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What should i make with this yarn? on: March 08, 2005 11:46:39 PM
I frogged a horrible ugly sweater and now have quite a bit of thin black boucl-ish yarn. It's...mmm.....sport weight? yeah. thin uneven bumpy sport weight.

What should i make it into? I've been on a sweater kick ever since i learned to knit simply because i like being able to wear my addiction, and when knit on 6s it ends up being very light and lacy, buuuuutttt i can think of no patterns that i've found recently that would work perfectly with it.

Any ideas?
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to make a garter belt? on: March 03, 2005 09:57:40 PM
Sooo.....I need a garter belt. Having looked around the interweb for one that really appeals to me, i've only found one. it was worn by a suicidegirl in exactly one photoset and there was no mention of where it came from. The interesting thing about it was that, unlike most garter belts i've seen, it wasn't lace. or mesh. it was solid red panels with black edging. Now, i'm certain i could manage the construction of this, but i haven't the faintest idea what sort of shape to make the panels and no dummy to attach fabric to in an experimental way.
so my point is: does anyone know of a free online pattern for a garter belt or could anyone sketch me out a pattern that i can use as a starting point?
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Nonplussed skull purse for a birthday gourd on: February 25, 2005 03:32:17 PM
Sooooo.........my radness advisor is 21 today. And had not nearly enough 1) purses or 2)opportunities to explain one of her favorite facial expressions in everyday conversation.

contrast stitching in her favourite color, tiny black&white check lining, pink-line zip pocket on back:

19  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / I have a cute tin. It needs a new purpose. on: February 10, 2005 10:45:53 PM
Sooooo....i just ate the last bittersweet chocolate wedge. now i have a rad empty chocolates tin. what should i do with it?

20  KNITTING / Knitalongs / "Tatania" knitalong on: February 02, 2005 01:07:54 AM
So I found this free Berrocco pattern while scouring the interweb for, well, free patterns the other day


I quite like the shape and ribbing and whatnot, although i'll probably make the sleeves much shorter (i.e. cap sleeves). The recommended yarn has been discontinued and I prefer acrylic anyway, so I'm thinking of doing this in Plymouth Encore D.K. ($1.50 at smileysyarns!) burgundy tweed.

Anyone care to join me?
