Hi all,

Firstly thanks to [personal profile] skud for the permission to post this here.

I started a new comm last week [community profile] crafts_for_kids, which as its name suggests is for people who are interested in finding/showing crafting ideas that can be used with children. I'm hoping for as much variety as possible - any craft, for any age (young through to teens - it's all good), and it doesn't matter whether it's something they can do alone, with help and just with guidance. I'm hoping that, over time, the ideas bank will build and will include a whole bunch of cheap, fun things to do to make gifts or fill rainy days. Things that are suitable for groups of children as projects for classes or camps are also welcome.

We've already got a few ideas being shared, so do feel free to stop by and look or to come and join us and help us all find some more ideas of things to do. Crafts_For_Kids.

I have a massive skein of bernat handicrafter cotton in a natural off white type tone. I am using it to knit up little washcloths for my cousins kids as holiday gifts. I was wondering if anyone who has experience dyeing cotton yarn with tie dye kits has tried painting the dye onto knitted items rather than dip dyeing the unknitted yarn? Or, if that won't work any suggestions for dye methods that might allow me to, for example, make the duck yellow and the water blue on this?

I have just knitted a child's cardigan in a double knit cotton yarn, and I now need to sew in a zip. 

My question is, should I sew the zipper in by hand with cotton thread, or is it possible to do it on a sewing machine?  If I use the sewing machine should I place it on the machine with the knitted garment under the zipper, tacking the zipper to the knit first?  I am really worried about setting the tension correctly on the machine, but if I hand sew I know it won't be as neat.

Any advice anyone?

I have several more rows of shoulder to knit, and then 8 or so inches of hood.

I know it’s going to be completely adorable and worth the effort, but I cannot wait to finish it and move on to a new project.
