Yarn work Question

Hello! I'm Jordan the Knitter and I'm new to instructables. This website is amazing! I thought it would be fun to start out with a question. Is there anything you would like to learn in the realm of yarn work? I've been working yarn for about eight years. I spend a good bit of time avoiding homework by instructing others and making my own designs.

Harry Potter- Knitted Dark Mark Bag

I'm a big Harry Potter nerd, so a friend passed this link along to me. It's definitely cooler than just knitting house scarves!

Alphabet Soup You Can Wear

The magic of laser cutting has been shown once again, this time with these alphabetical or numerical scarves. While they look like they are made out of paper, they are actually micro fiber suede. This could be the start of a new fashion trend...Link via core 77

Christmas 2009 inspiration

Each year I do a "Christmas Project" that I give to friends and family. I'm completely uninspired this year. Anyone have something great they've made? I have to be able to make it for 15 or so people and the cost is usually $5 to $10 a person (though some years I have a more expensive project so I give to fewer people). I've done velvet scarves, candles, curry mix, blacken seasoning, kleenex holders, spiced nut mixes, caramels, painted dinner napkins, bent rebar garden art, and a few more I can't think of (I wish I had step-by-step photos for all of these!). Thanks for the ideas.

Controversy drives sales - will tabloids never learn?

There's a small family company, BrickArms, which plies its trade online, selling modified Lego minifigs.They are genuine Lego pieces, but modified into (mainly) military garb.Recently, their sales rose so dramatically that they have had to stop taking orders. Not bad, for a company selling individual Lego figures for ten times their originalpurchase price in the middle of a credit crunch.What happened?The media, that's what happened. In the UK, right-wing tabloid Daily Mail found out about the company, and immediately got all in a tizzy because the characters glorify terrorism - they all wear head-scarves or Nazi uniforms. They got a quote from a Muslim and a Jew to say how horrified they were. They got a quote from Lego to emphasise they were not official.They completely ignored half the company's range - as well as Germans and desert-clad figures, they have US marines, a Bond-style secret agent, a Colonial Marine and a zombie-assault set. The figures are meant for diorama-style displays, not to be played with by small children.Things aren't all bad, though - as soon as many readers saw the article, they went straight off to find out where they could be bought. Sales have soared. Even their UK distributor has had to close their ordering systems to catch up.Maybe somebody from BrickArms ought to write a letter of thanks?BrickArms website
