Re: ~~ You Give Wool a Bad Name ~~ Monday!

I'd love to try your skirtie pattern when it's done too! I love having girls. Now I just need to find, or dye, a yarn I love for DD's b-day in June. Since I haven't seen 3IG's Teague anywhere for sale besides their site. Of course I do have a few months .

Ok, need to get ready to leave station for audit and review. After 24hrs I just want to go home! But DH is off work so I really don't have an excuse to skip it this time.

Have a good day! I'll be back at some point, depending on how the girls (and DH) are today.

This morning, I woke up and there was no coffee. We ran out this weekend and forgot to go to the store yesterday. Hubby is hitting the starbucks drive through on his way to work, but the boys are both asleep so starbucks can't help me. I went digging in the cupboard and found a box of flavored coffees that someone gave us for christmas a few years ago. Yes, I am desperate. I don't like flavored coffee...but I don't care at this point. I need caffeine and I need it fast...
NO COFFEE!!!!

Off to make some...



I'll share!! Anyone else?

my gauge is changing now that I'm working in pattern and these are going to be too big.

*sigh* Casting on again.

Re: ~~ You Give Wool a Bad Name ~~ Monday!

Woolie Mamas, I thought you could help.
I bought this scrappy custom and we are going to do scrappy girly shorties with a ruffle hem. (I am omiting the colourway on the furthest to the right) What trim should I do? I am leaning towards pink or white.
http://hyenacart.com/prod_details.php?id=94477&vid=1451
Anyone ever knit shorties with a white trim? Is it too bold? Or does it make the colours pop?
THANKS!

Okay, tell me if I'm crazy--I'm thinking I'm going to need to work the short rows into the leaf pattern. I have a plan for this, but would it be better to just knit on really tiny needles so I can still get enough stitches between the pattern repeats that I can work the short rows between them?

(oh, and if the mama who ordered the custom happens to be reading this thread, I swear they will look nice when I am done--don't lose faith!!!)

Re: ~~ You Give Wool a Bad Name ~~ Monday!

OK ladies, so I havea question for ya all. My daughter and her fam (including my sweet CD'd lo) will be visiting from Israel for 3-4 weeks in late March. With luggage restrictions, she (kukoo here on DS) is thinking of not bringing her dipes and using an eco friendly diaper service while here (if that is even possible for short term). WHat are your thoughts? Or should she just bring 2 doz prefolds and flats and use them? Pls LMK!
