knitters... a solicitation


Hello!

Are any of my knitting friends taking custom orders/willing to do a commission thing/needing extra cash?

This is something I'd want within the next month, and probably hella easy. I was looking at Etsy but why not help out a friend while being a consumer?

Depends what you need... I'm on a big knitting kick right now and could probably knock something out. Email me if it's a sekrit.

I'm looking for a hat & cowl/neckwarmer combo.

Hats I like:

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16131332
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=11403606

*particularly* the last one which I adore including the wacky colors. When I saw the word "remnants" I knew this was the kind of hat I would like.

Cowls I like:

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15790219
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16249557
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15738827
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9537714

That last one mainly matches the blue stripey had linked above.

Most people make stuff in wools and I have a reaction to wool/alpaca/etc so I want cotton. So basically a ridiculous gnome hat and matching cowl with horrific kitschy buttons. The gnome hat should not be so tight it smooshes my newly curly girl hairs.

I am excited about the idea of making something in a chunky yarn. However, it's probably going to need to be acrylic--cotton is heavy and inelastic, and they don't normally make bulky yarn out of it. I'd love to make it, though. All I've been working on so far this year is gloves and mittens, and I need a break from teeny needles.

Hit me up on AIM tonight and we can work out details, if you like.

I'll be in class til 8:45 but will try to log on once I get home to discuss! I'm OK with acrylic, some of the acrylics are really soft.

I don't wear wool either, so I know how to pick nice acrylics. :)

If you don't catch me online, email me with some colors you like.

if you find instructions or a pattern, I would love to see them...

Now I want a pixie hat!

I think she's gonna make her own pattern. I'll try to convince her to share or publish. :)
