21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Buttons? on: October 03, 2007 06:36:11 AM
I have a bunch of vintage buttons and a lot of them are really big like you are looking for.  For cool vintage buttons you can try a second hand store and buy some garments with neat buttons.  Also, sometimes they sell big bags full of them that people have donated from their sewing stashes or something.  I bet you can also buy them in lots on eBay.  You should check.
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lion Brand Microspun - Any Pattern Suggestions? on: October 02, 2007 06:25:44 AM
I knitted a skirt out of microspun and it has not stretched out, which is amazing considering my booty has expanded a bit since I knit it... ha ha.  The stitch pattern is a butterfly stitch and that might be holding the shape together a little bit.  You can see the FO on my blog.  (And yes, it is very heavy!)

The yarn was so much fun to knit with because it is so soft, but the FO pulls pretty easily - at the slightest snag one of those little microfibers yank out.  Nevertheless, I would knit with it again!

Good luck!

p.s.  I'm in your same stash predicament - no new yarn until it is down to a manageable size!  I think it is cosmically unfair!

Sheldon from Knitty!  In multiple colors.  Everybody wants one!
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / A safety line how to? on: October 02, 2007 06:10:58 AM
I've heard many mentions of threading a "safety line" into your knitting to provide a place you can frog back to when you are about to knit into perilous waters, but I can't figure out exactly how to do it.  Is it as simple as just threading yarn through all the stitches on your needle?  (Am I that dumb?  ha ha)

Does anyone know of a place to get instructions for this (and/or instructions on how to properly put the stitches back on the needle when you frog back to it)?  Merci!
25  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: anyone recognize this stitch? on: August 24, 2007 04:01:30 PM
Thanks so much! Single crochet, eh... lol  I should have guessed that one.  Smiley
26  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / anyone recognize this stitch? on: August 24, 2007 01:31:16 PM
I inherited this half finished afghan from my aunt, but I'm pretty new to crochet and I can't figure out what stitch it is.  Whatever is it, it looks pretty simple, so I'm hoping I can finish it up.  Any help is greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

(it's double stranded)

Great job! Don't show your friends or you will turn into a mice making sweatshop (I know from experience!)

Funny story: I've only made one of the balls and string things and for some unknown reason one of the balls is twice as big as the other... lol  Increasing is not my forte....
28  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / I rolled my own! on: August 21, 2007 06:44:41 AM
I've had a crappy needle holder for ages that my needles always fell out of, and I've been meaning to make a new one ever since I got S&B, but never got around to it.  WHY DID I WAIT?  This needle roll is awesome!  It is HUGE - holds all my needles, plus room for duplicates and the giant flap across the top keeps everything in its place.

Tapestry fabric is pretty expensive, so I used some lovely printed corduroy and one piece of embroidered corduroy for my holder.  I'm pleased that I went with a heavy fabric like the pattern recommends - it made a nice sturdy case.

Looks great kelseymelissa.  As long as you like the yarn you choose that's all that matters!  I think those colors are fab.  Keep us updated!

I did 3/4'' sleeves and have notes on my blog about my sleeve decreasing.

May or may not be helpful.

There have been two of these pink and grey ones so far in the KAL.  They're the Simply Soft colors.  You should make one and join the club!

sdawson - I love your FO.  It looks cute short! 

You did a great job! I've been wondering how pink and grey would look for this. It's beautiful.
