1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Gimme a project for this yarn. on: April 03, 2007 08:22:04 PM
I've got 4 skeins of dk weight wool/cotton, each a different color.  They look good together, so I'd love to make something with colorwork.  The problem is that 200g isn't enough for a sweater, but it's too much for a pair of gloves or something.  Any ideas for a medium-sized garment?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What's alpaca like? on: March 07, 2007 10:49:24 AM
I have never knit with alpaca, but I hear that it's significantly warmer than wool.  Thus, would it be logical to knit a fall/winter sweater out of 100% alpaca, or would it be a total sauna?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Banana yarn on the hunger site! on: February 20, 2007 01:52:21 PM
Has anyone knit with banana fiber or seen it before?
It's being advertised on www.thehungersite.com.
I haven't bought any yet, but it looks like fun.  I just thought I'd spread the word.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Tree Gloves for my sister on: January 23, 2007 04:34:48 PM
Well, they're fingerless gloves, really.  I wanted to make my sister some real tree gloves, where the fingers would be the leaves... but I didn't leave myself enough time before Christmas to make up that kind of knitting intensity.  Instead they're just... these:

cabled green trunks wrists and green openwork on top.

Aww, cute, right?  (Don't mind my face, it was early.)
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Beautifully shaped plastic bottle on: December 16, 2006 11:24:17 AM
I have a bottle that once held pomagranate juice (maybe you've seen them... it looks like this minus the juice, of course).
I couldn't bring myself to get rid of it, it was just so nice and shapely.  But now, what to do with it?  I think something involving paint and light, but help me out with ideas here.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Not enough yarn!! on: December 11, 2006 01:15:13 PM
So I got a nice, beautifully dyed 50g ball of wool to knit my friend an entrelac scarf for Christmas.  I am using huge needles, but apparently not huge enough.  I don't know what I was thinking only buying one ball and expecting this to be the longest scarf ever.  Roll Eyes
I'm about halfway through right now and there is no way I'm going to shell out 8 more bucks for another skein of that stuff when I already banned myself from any more yarn purchases (hey--I'm being good here).  Would it look weird if I picked it up with a different color for the entire middle section and then used the rest of the yarn for the end?  Like black?  Or is there another way to integrate the pretty yarn with a neutral one I have a bigger quantity of?  I don't mind ripping out at this point.

I'd appreciate any suggestions greatly.   Undecided  Thanks.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Pretty Socks on: October 06, 2006 09:29:32 PM

I really like the pattern (my own), but I don't think I used a very good yarn for it.  I'll probably use a solid next time.  Other than that, I dig them.
What do you think?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rainbow Gloves on: September 19, 2006 04:00:26 AM
This is my first pair of gloves!  Grin yay.
I made them using rainbow yarn I dyed with PAAS Easter egg dye and a fun zigzag stitch.

I finished them a long time ago, but until now I didn't have the patience to weave in all those ends (and by "weave in," I really mean "snip as short as I safely can and tuck inside somewhere")

Hope you like them!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitty's Topi (modified) on: August 08, 2006 10:31:23 AM
I usually don't use patterns, but I love this little hat to no end.
Of course I had to modify it... I gave it a much shorter brim and some little X's on the sides for decoration.

The yarn is Caron Simply Soft.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rainbow Bass Clef Felted Tote on: August 08, 2006 07:52:08 AM
Here's a bag I made from Knitpicks Dye Your Own + Easter egg dye.  I love how the colors came out, but I wish there had been more pooling.
Anyway, I used my own pattern so I'm excited that the shape turned out so nice after felting.  Hoorah!
