Re: Knitted autumn leaf

Thank you Tina. It was a multi coloured ball of very narrow 'ribbon' Best way I can describe it. Bought it at a sale price and don't know it's name.

Re: Create a Lining for a Knit Bag

Thank you Michaela. I don't mean to be a nuisance but I have Googled the magazine to try and see if it's available in Australia and I cannot find it

Re: Create a Lining for a Knit Bag

Thank you Michaela - I see that I can order from over there but can you please just let me know if this magazine is distributed in Australia. I live on a mountain and it is a fair way to the coast but if I know it's available I will go down. Just trying to cut on postal costs which I have no idea what they would be
Thanks again

Re: Create a Lining for a Knit Bag

Is there a section where one can ask a question and be sure of getting a reply. I really would like to know about this magazine. I have done lots of searches and cannot find it in Australia. Someone please help^_^

Re: How to Crochet a Button

Linda, I also had an idea of making them into hair ties for my little granddaughter. I did some with yoyos and they looked ever so cute and I think the buttons would too

Re: Magazine Collage Figures

How I wish I could watch videos. We live on a mountain top in South East Queensland and cannot get broadband. I have tried on dialup and it's impossible.

Re: Create a Lining for a Knit Bag

Thank you so much Vicky. I am in Australia. Is it available over here in the newsagents? I have never seen it so if I did order online what would the postage be to Australia. Probably a heavy book?^_^

Re: Create a Lining for a Knit Bag

Love this. Is the handbag knitting pattern available please

Re: How to Knit Everlasting Autumn Leaves: No Raking Required

Thank you Vicky, have just done all that and my post is still where it was. Maybe when I log on again it will have gone to Jeff's project.

Re: Knitting on the Go: Stitches to Take with You

Re: Yo-Yos and Couching: Two Easy-to-Do Embellishment Techniques

I just recently bought a yoyo maker and find it so easy to make perfect little circles and now I have some new ideas of how to use them. Thank you for a great article.

Re: Jeff's paper daisies

Thank you Vicky but I have only just joined up and am a little lost and don't know how the forum works but trying.
Can you guide me as to how to do what you have recommended. I did try again but ended up with two posts the same so had to delete it.

Re: How to Make Perfect Paper Daisies

Thank you so much for such a great design. I have made two already but used them as ATC's

Re: How to Crochet a Button

Wow thank you for this. I knit handbags and sometimes I am at a loss for a clip or closure for the bag. I have stacks of buttons and this would make a great feature either in the same wool or a smart contrast. I can also see these as card decorations. I am into card making especially ATC's
Thanks for sharing
