I have a limited income to spend on this, but I need your advice, thanks!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / rant about lack of local knitting places.excuse the mess on: January 03, 2008 06:51:35 PM

I received a wee bit of money for CHRISTmas....I wanted new knitting goodies..

I went to my only local LYS, Wally world...

they only have the prepackaged cheap needles, and not all the sizes, 2 different sized circular needles, and yarn. that was about it.

I am so upset. I am so angry.

by the time I drove to the nearest LYS it would use up most my money and I wouldn't be able to buy anyway.

I am so mad

am I the ONLY knitter in northeast Alabama? I mean come on people. Surely not. They had all kind of crochet needles, and crochet books, but NOT KNITTING. Can you believe that?

I ask you to please forgive my rant. This is ugly I know. I just simply don't understand why no knitters love. I am upset for sure.

what do you knitters do when theres no local LYS & you don't have a credit card to buy on line?

stepping down off of my ranting box
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / magic loop wooooooes! on: November 28, 2007 07:20:36 PM
I am trying to make up socks for my CHRISTmas gifts this year (strapped for cash, you know the drill...so make it! LOL)

I have tried making them with the magic loop method & I end up with a tangled mess.....

is there a particular size circular needle I need to use to create this?

I have a

 6.00 mm (us:1) 29"-73.5 cm circular needle

can I magic loop with it?


6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / no sock yarn, now what??? on: November 28, 2007 05:58:01 PM
hello friends!

I have knitted 2 pairs of socks....and I did so using double pointed needles *yea me!*

They have ended up looking a bit stiff & I believe its because of my yarn....we have no sock yarn in our WalMart & theres no LYS around where I live...

what yarn can be substitued for sock yarn???

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what's up with 'The Misfits' love? on: November 04, 2007 10:06:23 AM

I have noticed that many of us have the same common loves

you will see a good many cat lovers that are knitters

and a good many that are dog lovers as well

but I have noticed something else

the love of The Misfits musical group

whats up with the group called misfits and the love that comes from the crafty among us?

my hubby (poor soul) loves The Misfits & even helped Mikey dress up like Glenn Danzig one year for Halloween.

We were looking thru posts on Craftster & Ravelery & we have seen many pics that have The Misfits somewhere in the background if not the center of what the craft is about.

We were just discussing this between ourselves & my oh so wise Boo suggested I post this question to you all..

whats with The Misfits love?

I have just purchased a 6.00 mm (us:1) 29"-73.5 cm circular needles
have a pack of 4>> 3.25MM-(us:3) dbl.

where do I go to find patterns for socks that are for a beginner, if I can?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / doggie sweater from a knitting loom.......yea me! on: September 23, 2007 01:48:19 PM
hello, gang!

we have this silly little dog that just shivers all of the time & I worry about him being really cold at night (and it's not even winter here yet!)

I made this up along the way as I loomed it. I couldn't find a pattern for a loom sweater for a dog....

this is my first try

he didn't know what to think about it here.....lol

it makes me feel better to know that he will be a wee bit warmer. The next ones I loom I'm going to make a few small changes, but I'm still pretty happy with how they turned out especially since I made it up as I went! (if you knew me you'd be amazed I did this. LOL)
