Welcome to "What'cha Knittin'"!! :waving:

This forum allows us to provide project inspiration to other knitters, while at the same time receive LOTS of kudos for the AWESOME work we all do...

Here are some guidelines that will help us all get the most out of this forum:

Post each of your FOs ("Finished Objects") or WIPs ("Work in Progress") in its own thread. Include that designation in the Subject line of the thread (Example: "FO - Husband Cozy!")

Include all the information you possibly can about your piece....link to the pattern if you can or tell us the name of the book in which we can find it, tell us what yarn you have used, etc., etc., etc.!

If there's anything you think I have left out, please post your question below, and Ill add it!

Bump, sorry I didn't read this first, I posted a "bunch" of FOs, although the pics were all on my webpage. :)

Example: "FO - Husband Cozy!")

:roflhard: :roflhard:

Ah ha! Another project for which I can get lots and lots of yarn...and, since it's not for ME, then I don't have to feel guilty!

Got a pattern for that husband cozy, Kelly?

Guess that doesn't require as much yarn as I'd hoped...

Great Idea KK! I love to look at everyone's WIPs and FOs--however I always seem to do more ripping out than taking lovely shots of FOs!

I did finish my grandson's red hat--with Red Heart worsted and sz. 8 needles, and another pair of socks. The socks pattern is in 'The Knitter's Handy book of Patterns 'by Ann Budd, in Superwash Sockotta, I think,-self-patterning black and white thread. It was on sz. 2 bamboos, which I love to work with. It just about ruined my eyesight for good!

SO I do have 2 FOs!!

And my WIPs are a scarf for my SisIL's Christmas--in Plush Eggplant and Pistachio stripes on size 7's. Also have just started another pair of socks on Sz 2 bamboo dps with a self patterning Regia in Patriotic colors.

where did you get the Turkey Costume for your Chi, KK?

Kelly's "Turkahuahua" costume isn't her own, she found the pic somewhere else! Looks like Howie, but it's some other chihuahua in the get-up. :lol:

I just have to say YIPPEEE, I'm SOOOOOO glad I finally decided to make this it's own forum. It's so much easier to respond to individual posts! Thanks to all y'all who kept at me to make this its own forum category! :heart:

can I ask, so when we are working on something we start a thread for it individually and when we finish an object we start a thread individually? Just checking cause we could have like 500 threads in no time if everyone has wip and gets stuck and goes onto something else like i do and then end up buying more needles cause i have needles hanging on items. opps too much info.

That's a good question! What if you post a WIP & then change the name of the thread to "Knitted thing....NOW FO!" when its done? Feedback? Anyone? Anyone? Buehler???

I'd like to show off this wonderful patterned piece I just completed. It took a while to get started. Long story if you've gotta a minute.
Went to the cafe to pick up a stiche, brought it home and it made me itch. Tried to complete it but it didnt look finished so I pulled it apart and ate alot of spinach. I picked a new pattern that seemed ohh so delightful and thought it would fit but it become unsightful. So I pulled it, unknotted and finally arrived at the origin of the yarn and to my surprise begun the next project that I just completed. Sew, here it is and hope it feels warm ,when put on it is certain to warm. Its a dlightful little number that I thought would be fine. :XX:

I may have missed this but... are we allowed to post copyrighted things? As long as we post where we for that pattern and/or directions ? ex. I am making a Dora afghan for my daughter. Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer my question.

Yep, you can post pictures of things you've made that are from patterns with a copyright. You shouldn't post the pattern if you didn't write it, but you can link to an outside sourc that has the pattern available. Of course, we all have to remember that we can't make money (i.e. from selling a piece we made) from a pattern that isn't our own.

good question! :thumbsup:

What camera res and/or file size (and format) is acceptable for posting pix of FO's here?

How do you post a picture to a thread?? Each time I try my pictures show up really really big.... Even after I believe that I have decreased them in size?? How do you find out the url of your image when it is stored in my pictures folder on my computer???:shrug: Wendy

Use the attachment button (paperclip icon) instead of the insert picture option. Then you can browse the pictures on your computer. Make sure you click the upload button after you've selected your pictures.

As Roseybee said, click on "manage attachments" below the text box or use the paperclip. From there you can browse for a photo on your computer to upload it. It will end up looking like this screenshot I've attached here.

Do resize them before uploading them though because they may not work if too large.

I was wondering after you post a WIP, when it's finished do you start a new thread or edit that one?

Just finished a pair of fingerless mitts-actually there are short, partial fingers--from Patons Next Steps Seven. Used Kroy Socks Cameo colors--for my daughter. They were a challenge, but came out very nice!! linknit41
