  1. I love my knifty knitters, its the only way I can knit anything .. I'm all thumbs when it comes to trying to knit with needles. I have both the round looms and the long looms, along with an 18" small gauge knitting board from www.knittingboard.com I love all my looms. I made this scarf on my pink long loom from a pattern I purchased from Denise Layman at http://www.knitchat.com/ So far I have made three of these scarves. One in purple jiffy, one in blue wool ease and this one in Wool Ease Pines. Enjoy
  2. Ooooooooooh I love her to bits!! Great job
  3. That is absolutely beautiful!! I love it
  4. Gorgeous afghan .. I have that book and have been eyeing that pattern for a while now ... quick or time consuming?
  5. OMG .. I just noticed you posted that ... there's a HARRY POTTER CAL??? HOw in the world did I miss that??? I'm a HUGE HP fan
  6. Thanks ... I actually goofed making the handles .. they were a tad too long .. so I decided that I would attach them starting under the bottom of the bag .. extra support you know Copchic .. I loved the fabric so much I had to buy what was left on the bolt I think it was a total of 4+yards .. I just LOVE Joann Fabrics and Alexander Henry Fabrics
  7. What a great outfit!! I really love the tiered skirt and the flower on the hat reminds me of Peonies! If you ever get the pattern written out, I'd love to make this for my 10 year old.
  8. Great bag!! Thank you for sharing the link to the pattern
  9. Ok, I just have to say this .. I LOOOOOOOOVE Christina's crochet patterns. Here is her Hot Pink and Black Long Skirt. I made this is Caron Pounders ... Raspberry and Black. My lil turtle loves it!! Thanks Christina! Here is the Link to the pattern I used.
  10. LOL I love the lining fabric so much I bought 4 yards I have a love of most things gothic/dark/macabre. I know, I know, I'm 41 and insane :rofl
  11. Thank you all. Yes, I just started making baby clothes without a pattern. Normally I have to have written instructions so that things come out right. Give me a few days, I need to buy more yarn to redo the dress (I have two pregnant friends) and write the pattern down as I go. Since I didn't think to write it down the first time.
  12. Ok, this is my attempt at a baby dress without using a pattern ... be honest Please.
  13. Hello all .. I just finished a new shoulder bag for myself. My backpack finally gave up the ghost so to speak, so I needed something good sized to hold my stuff ... This was my first attempt at lining and putting a zipper into a bag. Good thing I know the advanced basics of sewing LOL. I used two skeins of Black Caron Pounder yarn, (with about half left), a J hook. I started with a basic oval the size I wanted and then used a HDC around to the height I wanted and finished off with two rows of basketweave stitch. To keep the handles from stretching, I crocheted them down the length. I still want to add a pocket on the outside, and have a graph charted, I just need to perfect my graph crochet technique, so it doesn't look like a mess LOL. Now .. on to the pictures. The inside with all my junk the lining fabric I LOVE IT! Empty Outside
  14. Oh my!! That is stunning! My sister is pregnant and I would love to make this for her .. where did you find that adorable pattern?
