Mustaa villaa: Three reasons to love Garter Stripe Beanies Three reasons to love Garter Stripe Beanies 1. The colours.I really, really love knitting with colours.

nupp, nupp, nupp | pepperknit The Swallowtail Shawl is done! And I wore her to work today (to many wonderful compliments). Pattern: Swallowtail ShawlSource: Interweave KnitsYarn: Shelridge Farm “Soft Touch Lace,” 100% wool, 2-ply laceweightColor: MandarinSkeins: Less than 1; a skein is 500 yardsNeedles: Addi Turbo size 5 circ, then a size 8, then a size 10Preblocking size: 34″ wide by 16″ high at the tipPostblocking size: 54″ wide by 22″ high at the tipStarted: Thursday, May 17 (evening)Finished: Monday, May 28 (evening) Modifications: I chose to make the shawl larger, increasing the number of center back motif (“Budding Lace”) repeats. Now, what I didn’t pay attention to was that the Peaked Edging repeat is 8 stitches wide. Note that the pattern says, “The shawl can be made larger by working it with fingering, sport, or worsted-weight yarn on larger needles.” I’m really happy with the modified size. Now, my decrease modifications. The other decrease modification I made was to the “sk2p” (sl1 kwise, k2tog, psso).

Tutorial: Sew A Lining Into A Crocheted Bag This tutorial shows you how I hand sew a fabric lining into a crochet bag. There is a line of stitching at the top of the fold in my lining as reference. If you make a lining, you don't need the stitching line.

Detailed instructions (text is above its corresponding photo) · Pin the lining into the bag. 1) Find the crochet row where you will be sewing the lining into the bag. 2) Use a stitch marker to mark the midpoint of both sides of the handbag. 3) Put the lining in the bag. 4) I put the snaps in my lining in the exact middle of each side. 5) Close the snap and fold the handbag flat to find the right and left edges of the crochet bag. 7) Hold the bag so it's flat between two of the pins. 8) Make sure you don't stretch or bunch up the crochet. 18) Pull tight.

Hema-breiboeken In de jaren zeventig en tachtig van de vorige eeuw waren de Hema-breiboeken razend populair. Eén keer per jaar werd het winter-breiboek uitgegeven door de Hema en later volgden ook de zomer-edities. Binnen de kortste keren waren de boeken na verschijnen uitverkocht. Eind jaren zeventig bereikte de oplage van het breiboek een recordhoogte van 250.000. Zelf truien breien werd nog populairder dan het was. Het modebeeld verschoof en het breiboek hield uiteindelijk op te bestaan. In 2011 heeft de Hema de draad weer opgepakt. Veel breiplezier!! >> Wie op Patronen in de linker zijbalk klikt krijgt een overzicht van de geplaatste patronen. So I bought the Boye Needlemaster set a while ago for a few reasons: 1. Price (cheapest set available, especially if you have a 40% off coupon, heh) 2. Tons of tips (2-15! no other set has this range of sizes) 3. Pretty colors (yeah, this is silly, but they're so purty!) The cables that came with them, however, sucked. So in a fit of insanity, I decided to make my own. I hesitated making a tute for this since it seems pretty extreme, making your own cables, but I figured if people are willing to take a tap and die to metal needles maybe someone would be interested in how to make their own cables. So after lots of measuring, trial and error, trying to find perfect materials, I got it, and let me tell you, these cables are awesome. These are really easy to make, seriously. So not including the stuff laying around the house I spent probably 8 bucks total on this, and that's including 200 feet of weed eater line (that's a lot of interchangable cables!) Items Needed: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 7. 8.
