Re: cheap way to keep your needles and other bits safe

My cookery teacher keeps all her cooking stuff in a big man's tool box which I think is a really good idea, and I love the juxtaposition. Most of my knitting stuff lives in an old fashioned square vanity case and the needles all live in a leather needle case which I was given. I don't take knitting ...

Re: Sizing patterns for unusual shapes!

Right so I'm going to order the yarn for the shapely tank now. I love the way that some yarns don't tell you how long they are and also that some state it in yards and some in metres, because this isn't already confusing enough right?!! If I'm reading the pattern correctly, I need approx 700yds of y...

Re: Sizing patterns for unusual shapes!

Cor blimey, tell me about it! I'm finding all this yarn business really baffling! Thanks for that though, I'll pick one of those. So the yarn I wanted to order for my mum's wrap (Louisa Harding Grace and Sari Ribbon) would cost about £62 to buy which seems a little on the excessive side so I'm tryin...

Re: Sizing patterns for unusual shapes!

Thanks ladies. I looked through my folders again last night and she did pick out a front twist wrap which I think should be do-able. I can't find it exactly on Rav but this one isn't a million miles away http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/twisty-turns" onclick="window.open(this.href);return fal...

Re: Sizing patterns for unusual shapes!

That's a very sensible suggestion. I was kind of hoping she'd pick out a wrap or something tbh! Thanks for that link, not sure any of those are exactly right for her but I'm looking on Rav now and am going to go through my magazines tonight. Though I'm not sure a shrug is necessarily flattering for ...

Re: Sizing patterns for unusual shapes!

Well I think that's why she picked it as it would undoubtedly be quite flattering but honestly I think it would be a bit much for me at the moment. And I'm starting to realise that The Art of Knitting is a bit of a crap magazine. I found their instructions on sock knitting with dpns and it was rubbi...

Sizing patterns for unusual shapes!

As I mentioned in another thread, I have promised to knit something for my mum as a gift. Given my recent experience with my tanktop which is too big, I obviously want to get this one right. Never let it be said I don't learn! She picked a couple of patterns she liked from The Art of Knitting which ...

Re: Lilac cardi

Agreed, that sounds hilarious and I for one think it's only right that we get to see some before and after pics!
