We should post our Ravelry IDs, if we have them. Heck, even might make a Sinfest Knitting Club there, for all readers of Tat. Knitting and crocheted projects inspired by his characters. Ah, I can picture it now.

Mine is Greenwick. (Yes, now you know my other internet name!). That's also my DA name.

I'll be taking pictures of some monsters I have made later today. I think Seymour would probably be the easiest Sinfest character for me to do, due to his very round head.

Edit: Okay, I just added some projects. I make a lot of small monsters, but I think my favorite so far is this carrot bag:

i'm whitemouse.

just to explain, because i do stuff because it is TOTALLY LOGICAL and it's not like i'm just compulsive or anything:

i coordinate a yoga class at work, which mostly means i harass people to sign up and then collect the money and send it in. we have to pay up front, so i have to estimate what the per person cost will be when i post the new classes.

so this time, we got more people than i expected, which means (for once!) i can actually give people money back. it came to $12.50/person.

so i was trying to figure out how i was going to deal with all those quarters, and i was looking at my basket full of left-over yarn, and it came to me: i will knit everyone a little bag for the money!

so i have spent the last few days knitting 12 bags (for the class people) plus a larger one for me (because there are a few people who haven't actually signed up but want to take the class so they pay a per session price). all assorted lace stitches.

i actually did take pictures of all of them, now i have to figure out how to do one of those photo montage things so i'm not posting a whole raft of pictures.

also, i've got yarn to attempt another cat bed.

Added everyone.

Also, my Ravelry is JoeFriday. *shifty eyes*

I'm seriously thinking of dropping everything and working on Mister Stripy. Need to rework the calculations on the sleeve and remake it, seeing the last time I made it, it was too baggy.

Oh, and Mom wants me to make her a sweater. I'm thinking of a Brooks Sweater or a Rib Warmer.

given where you live, i would think she might get the most use out of a Rib Warmer (which is pretty cute, to boot).

you remind me that i really need to make another attempt at making my brother a sweater that actually fits.

Nothing fits someone better than a sweater made with Ms. Zimmerman's percentage system. Cool

Mentioned in Knitting Without Tears but discussed in depth in The Opinionated Knitter. I have both books, so... Razz

I did not make this. A friend of mine received this for her newborn as a gift from a crafty type friend. (PS crocheted)



There are supposed to be pictures of the baby wearing this so when I get them, I'll post it.

Oh hey, I suppose this is a good place to ask my question. Do any of you have recommendations for instructional videos to learn knitting? I have a book but I think watching a video would be a little better.

i don't have any particular recommendations, but i know there are a ton of instructional videos on the web. try searching for the specific thing you want to do - cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch, bind off. one heads-up - there are tons of different cast-ons and bind-offs, different ones for different purposes - so if the one you find first freaks you out because it seems really complicated, just keep looking - there are simpler ones out there.

ok, i have a question of my own, for all you people who make costumes out there. anyone see the movie "the tale of despereaux"? or more particularly, did anyone notice his hat? because i love that hat, i _want_ that hat, and i suddenly realized i had found a yarn of the right color that would felt beautifully into that hat...if only i had a pattern. which i could probably come up with, but felting can be a bit tricksy, and once you have felted something, it cannot be unfelted. and the Perfect Yarn is going to be discontinued, so i don't have infinite access. i have done a couple of searches for patterns just on the google, but the only one i've found wasn't actually there. SO...is there a good place to find patterns for things that come from movies and like that?
