Please tell me where you got the cable + clips thingy that you have hung little pictures on.  I've been trying to find something like that.

The room is awesome!

Well done!  I knit Continental, because, like you, I was a crocheter first, and holding the yarn that way made way more sense to me! 

Good luck on those mittens!

Thank you!

flyingmouse, she's a Japanese Chin.  But she's really small... a runt!

I had a ball of Knitpicks Andean Silk leftover after knitting an Argosy scarf (maybe I'll post that someday too) so I decided to make a sweater for my puppy!  She's actually almost a year old but she's very small, even for her breed, so one ball is PLENTY of yarn... I even had some left over!

Here's a shot of Miyo with her sweater (she really likes it)!  I had to take the picture when she was sleeping because that's only time she holds still, so that's why she looks a little out of it.  You can see big sis Chi snoozing in the background:

Here's a better shot of the cable detail on the back.  I had a hard time getting her to not be wiggly... she knows exactly what the camera is:

And here it is next to a tape measure so you can see how tiny:

This is my first non-scarf, circular and dpn project.  It's just so darn funny to see the wee sweater on the wee puppy that I had to share.

I got the pattern here.... it was the only sweater pattern I could find for circs that I could easily make smaller for miss Miyo.  I did it in stockingette instead of rib and added the cable with the help of this tutorial on cabling without a cable needle.

Figure out how to make my own shaped sweater pattern (I'm going to start with a vest).

great idea!  I saw that in a restaurant one time too.

I have hung up all my ornaments WITHOUT the tree this year.  Because of the pets...
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: It's impossible to find a pattern for a stitch like this! RAWG RAWG! on: December 13, 2007 02:40:33 PM
Definitely knit.  Some sort of entrelac.  Which just means that it is angled by adding stitches to one side and casting them off from the other.

I say this because perhaps you could accomplish the diagonal thingy with crochet in a similar manner?  I don't know.

Alternatively, you could learn to knit.  I was a lifelong crocheter but took up knitting.  I've only been knitting (and not continously--only finished a couple of things so far) for about a year and I've mastered entrelac already...

Yeah, Craftster IS for crafts, but if you post something, you have to know that you're asking for feedback and that all of that feedback may not be positive.  That being said, everyone who had any negative feedback made sure to state their opinions in a respectful and non-judgmental manner.  That's more than I can say for the condescending and rude tone of your post.  Where's the rule in Craftster that says you can only post if you're going to say how much you just love something?  Last time I checked, the 1st amendment was still intact and that gives people the right to disagree with something just as much as it gave sookie74 the right to start this thread in the first place.

I am very impressed by everyone's nonjudgmental remarks.  It just goes to show you how great a forum Craftster is.  I'm pretty sure, though, that the First Amendment does not apply to speech on Craftster.

I feel like a dupioni trenchcoat in charcoal gray would be very nice.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: pencil skirt how- to on: October 26, 2007 04:42:21 PM
I haven't yet met a pencil skirt that didn't have a walking slit if it was at the knee or longer.  Smiley

I made this sheath dress awhile ago and I forgot to slit the lining.  How dumb was that!   Grin
