Free online magazine. Tons of free patterns. Forums (coffeeshop link at the top), I'm Arsinoe Selene there, too.

Let's see, how can I combine ren garb with knitting...

Pattern ideas? Difficulty is not a problem for me. I've done sweaters, socks, lace shawls...

You can make stockings. I've been working on Cookie A's German Stockings for my Jester garb.



I'm also working on a bag and have a bunch of stuff favorited on Ravelry I want to make.

Yeah, I don't do socks. I'm not afraid of turning the heel, working on DPN's, now, I don't care. I like a challange.

I have tried making socks, but I don't like them, and it takes me forever. My mom loves 'em, I hate them. I'm making a pair right now, and I'm on the second sock, and I started the first one... oh, a few months ago.

Oh, Ravelry! Is your id the same there as here?

Knitting loom question:

when making a hat for an adult, when choosing your loom you pick green or yellow (according to the kniffty knitters set). Is the size also determined  by the length of the tube?  I find that even though I use the right size loom I stiil make my hats too small.
i've  got the kniffty knitter looms I find the smallest two sizes are too small for adults my next largest is perfect circumfrance for adults if you make it too short though it won't fit an adult either. I've made several for adults and they all seem to fit ofcourse i use my head as a model if it will sit on your head comfortable then any adult should be able to wear it

Possibly weave in a non-stretchy material such as a decorative rope or ribbon?  Possibly as some type of accent edging?

I've been working on this shawl:


In pretty bright colors!  ;D

I'm using the handspun yarn from the roving Mag brought me from his trip to Michigan. It has lots of reds, oranges, and blues in it. I'm about a quarter the way through the bottom edging (the first part to be worked) so it will take some amount of time.
I've been turned into a cow. May I be excused?

volans: Congratulations!! Booties are kind of tough for a first project. Right stinkin' on!! There's a simple pattern for a bias baby blanket on the web somewhere (can't find my printout of the pattern with the addy on it) that's good for beginners, too, since it's simple but is a bigger project. It also teaches you how to work a flat piece on circular needles. Very handy to be able to do. ;)

Lady C: Here's hoping! I love it so far, but... well... it's unusual, to say the least. (This opinion coming from the person who thinks the teal, raspberry and mauve lace socks with ruffled tops that Mag won't let me wear are absolutely wonderful.  ;D ) Problem being, at the rate I'm going, it will take a good couple of years to finish.

spinster if it takes a few years to complete it still will be well worth the effort

hey! Here's what I've knit so far. I knit a baby hat, but forgot to photograph it before I gave it away. I taught myself how to knit on YOUTUBE of all things, haha! I started knitting in May.
