Question [Oct. 4th, 2008|11:13 pm]

I may have to fly out of town for a family emergency. Has anyone had any problems bringing DPNs on a flight? I don't want to have to check a bag, since they are charging through the nose for it...

Knitting WIP [Apr. 27th, 2008|10:14 am]

Cross-posted to other knitting blogs in the hope of breathing some life into them!!

My mum taught me to knit when I was 5, and i've dabbled with it off an on since then, but not as seriously as I have in the last six months. I have since taught myself to knit socks and baby jackets while having a lot of fun.

Socks behind here!Collapse )

I made a deal with my boyfriend, if I knit 10,000 baby hats we can have a baby! Haha. If I ever get to 10,000 we will be broke!

Baby hats galore!Collapse )

I'm a cheap knitter, so I'm always keeping an eye out for wool on sale or good discounts. In the photo of my stash, the larger blue and purple balls of wool only cost $1.99 NZD per 100gm, which is by far the cheapest, and it knits up nicely as well as the fact that it just feels good!

And finally my stash!Collapse )

I hope someone can help me.
I'm looking for a pattern for a lizard or a dragon. It seems almost impossible to find, but I have faith in my fellow knitters.

HELP! Help! Help! [Apr. 24th, 2007|09:30 am]

Hi guys!

I read this article that someone wrote about the recycled sari silk yarn. It was first person, almost a story of this woman's travels to India and Tibet where she describes the beauty of the yarn and the people so well I can almost taste the curry and feel the hot humid wind on my skin. I've been search my book marks but I can't find it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Do you have a link? *begs*

sock done! [Sep. 14th, 2006|01:07 pm]


By glanna

Well considering I ran out of yarn midway thru the foot and
changed from #3 needles to #5's at the ankle it doesn't
look half bad And it fits fine. However now I have to knit
this sock a mate. Hopefully a second sock will go faster as I
have my 1st trial sock done.

Help! Someone stole my pattern! [Aug. 6th, 2006|10:21 pm]

Let me backtrack.

Last year, I went on honeymoon and bought the Spring 05 Interweave Knits. I fell in love with the pattern called "A Good Bias." I knitted it, then stored the magazine for a while. I decided to knit it again, and started carrying the 'zine around with me. After a while, it fell apart, and I began carrying just the page with the pattern on it with me.

One day about two weeks ago, I went out to my car to go to work in the morning, and someone had thrown a landscaping brick through my window to take my purse, which he or she apparently fancied.

I've looked for the pattern everywhere, and all I can figure is that it must have been folded up in the purse when it was taken. I am about halfway through the second sleeve of the work, and I have the whole thing memorized except the three increase rows (where I am right now), and the number of repeats for the remainder of the work.

Does anyone have the 05 Interweave who would be willing to help me? I only need the graph of the second sleeve. I can photograph my WIP and my falling apart fall issue if necessary to show I'm telling the truth.

Thanks in advance. misslilly at gmail dot com.

The finished result [Nov. 4th, 2005|09:11 am]

[mood |accomplished]

Remember last week, when I bugged ya'll about figuring out my son's hat? I did use 84 stitches, and made it about 6" long before I started the decreasing. I used dpn's for the last 3 rows, and then ran a needle through the remaining stitches, pulled shut. I also used the suggestion to do the ribbing on straights, and sew a seam. I washed it, dried it, now it is in the mail. I hope it fits him! It was just a little big on me and my husband, which is good because our boy's head is big, 23" around, and he has big hair so to speak.

You can see it behind the cut. Thanks to all who helped!
