It's only been eight months, rather than a year this time, so progress? I've been on a 'two projects from wool in the stash' to every new wool purchase kick this last year or so, and it seems to be working out. My stash doesn't seem to be getting any smaller, but it's not getting any bigger either...

Finished items, all from wool that was already in my stash! )

Hi everyone!

I've mainly lurked here so far, but I wanted to draw this post to your attention:
http://justice-turtle.dreamwidth.org/231877.html

The poster, after a life full of medical and family issues, is in dire financial strains and selling several knitting/crochet patterns in an attempt to raise money to cover a student loan bill. (If you like the patterns but can't/don't want to donate, they'll be available for free from Aug 1, so it's still worth keeping an eye on this post.)

There's doll's wings, a baby bonnet (which is really cute and I'd totally be tempted to knit it, but I don't currently know anyone with a kid that young),and mesh backpack.

(I'm not sure if this type of post is allowed, but I couldn't find anything that said it wasn't--moods, please delete if inappropriate.)

Today was my first day of classes for the semester, and I brought my scarf (almost 24in now!) along to work on during lectures. So far, the plastic bag from the yarn store is holding up as a method of transportation, but I expect my needles will eventually end up punching through like they always do.

Does anyone have favorite patterns for (sewn, fabric) bags to hold knitting? My sewing skills aren't really up to the same "make it up as you go" skills as my knitting, and while I'd love to knit/felt my own project bag I somehow don't see that happening soon.

I'm looking for both large bags, and smaller bags for projects like scarves/hats/etc.

Thanks!

I don't know whether non-Ravelry folk can see this, but perhaps the only people who might be reading this will as a matter of course be Ravelry members anyway: Pimp Your Bike. Crotcheted wheel skirts—very fabulous!

Felting!

I am going to be felting tonight, for the very first time (on purpose ;).

I am doing the lopi tote (ravelry link, sign-in required) but I used 11 needles instead of 13, though I am knitting it veeeery loosely.

I have a front loader that can't be interrupted mid-cycle. Any tips on how to keep it from shrinking into a tiny little handbag instead of a moderate sized tote? Maybe do the wash with warm, instead of hot?

And is 7th Generation laundry soap okay to use?

Thanks!

Okay, I know this is going to sound like the dorkiest project ever, but anyone ever knitted a Stand Mixer Cozy? I need something to cover my pride and joy (a bright, candy apple red KitchenAid stand mixer) because it sits next to the stove and I'm going to admit, I'm lazy enough that I don't want to wipe it down every time I cook something. Lazy. Lazy. Or really smart? You decide.

Any suggestions are welcome!

I've joined the 52 Projects in 52 Weeks challenge group on Ravelry and we've had to post up our game plan for June. (Challenge starts on June 1.)

Soooo...my plan for June:
  1. Nintendo DS case
  2. Scarf for Ally
  3. spin/ply 4 oz of stashed fiber
  4. dreamerknits’ heart and stars blanket - WIP rescue

The whole thing is probably wishful thinking for me, but oh well. Worth a shot :)
