681  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Circular Shrug / Vest - Scale Model - TUTORIAL on: May 28, 2007 11:05:07 PM
I tried this pattern, can't remember where I got it, but it had a very nice illustrated drawing on it that showed the exact folds - but I still couldn't figure it out. It was easy and went fast so i figured, might as well ... and it turned out really nifty! The only change my target audience (sister) wanted was to sew up the sleeve with a little seam as the fit was rather strange. So next visit to the US I will take some of the yarn to do that little thing for her.

It was fun to knit up something that I couldn't figure out how it would end up looking (if that makes sense!)

It is in my Picasa album, not sure how to post pictures here, but this is the link. (My mom is modelling it!) If you look at the second picture you'll see what I mean about the sleeve.
682  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 14 skeins of "thick" sari silk - what to make?? on: May 28, 2007 07:38:20 PM
I got 14 skeins for 1000 baht in thailand, thats roughly $27 or so CAD

iwhat do i make so i dont feel like i'm wearing a hammock, and not so dull that i dont lose my mind?

any suggestions would be awsome!!

I know I'm chiming in here rather late - and you've probably already used up the yarn! I live in Thailand and found that stuff up in Chiang Mai and loved it. Have made several scarves from it ...

but the biggest hit was a pattern I found on knitty.com for a bag. It was a HUGE hit with my niece. I made it a bit larger than the instructions called for because she likes a deep bag and also lined it (well, my mom is doing that part!) so she could have a place to put wallet and cell phone. The pattern is very interesting and really shows that yarn off perfectly. Here is a link to the pattern: http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTunbiased.html
