1551  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Jayne Cobb Hat! on: January 14, 2007 05:03:42 PM
Yes, it really depends on what yarn you can get your hands on. I recommend the thickest you can find, it makes the knitting SO much faster! I'm all about the instant gratification!  Grin

And then use the thickness of needle that the yarn band recommends. That's assuming you go and buy all new materials (which I rarely do, in fact most Craftsters probably scavenge through their enormous craft stash like me).
You can definitely find some Jayne hat patterns for free online. I did.  Smiley Show us a picture when you're done!

I'd be buying all new materials.  My main vice is cross stitch, so I don't have much in the way of a yarn stash (embroidery floss, yes... yarn, not so much), and I don't own any circular needles.  I may hit my LYS tomorrow, if they're open (I have the day off, for Martin Luther King Day).  I'm sure they'll steer me right.

Have the wedding you want.

It's perfectly ok to elope, or have a destination wedding with just your immediate families and closest friends present, and then have a big party for all your friends later on.

Another browncoat here.  I love it!  Now I want a Jayne hat too...

Looks like it's not too difficult to make, with a circular needle and some thick orange and yellow yarn.  Any recommendations for needle size and type of yarn?  (I didn't read the whole thread, so my apologies if this info has already been posted.)
1554  UNITED STATES / Connecticut / Metro-North commuters who stitch? on: January 13, 2007 07:04:39 PM
Just wondering if anyone is like me...

I live in Fairfield County, CT, and I have a full-time job in New York City.  I always carry a small needlepoint or cross-stitch project with me, and I stitch during my evening commute.  A few fellow commuters have admired my work.

I've occasionally seen fellow commuters doing needlepoint or crochet.  It's a great conversation starter.  There's also a group of 4 men who always take the 6:13 train out of Grand Central, and play bridge during the hour-long ride to South Norwalk, where two (maybe three) of them detrain.

Anyway, if there are any New Haven Line crafty commuters around here, please let me know.  Perhaps we can start a mobile stitching group? Wink

I wish I'd seen this thread back when I still lived in the Danbury area.

I still live in Fairfield County.  Is this group still active?  Bethel is so quaint Smiley

My first job out of college required weekly travel.  I used to take cross-stitch projects with me - usually a kit along with some nail scissors.  (This was before 9/11.)  I'd stitch on the plane, while waiting to board, during long layovers, and in the evenings if I wasn't stuck in the office or hanging out with my coworkers.  More than one fellow passenger admired my work, as did a few flight attendants.

I recently flew while carrying a needlepoint project in my carry-on.  I was also carrying nail clippers (the TSA specifically allows nail clippers) to trim thread.  I stitched away while in flight.  No problem whatsoever with security.

Knitting needles are specifically allowed by the TSA, but the final call is up to the individual screener.  So my knitting stays home, just in case.

I'm a n00b here myself, but this thread jumped out at me, as I'm also a BSG fan.

It would be ironic if you made her a toaster cover, possibly with the "frak" design SKerri13 posted stitched onto it.

Heck, I might make that for myself! Wink
