Hello and welcome to all the friends of The Point, former Knitting Cafe. I know I'm seriously bummed to have lost that amazing community (not to mention my job); I'm offering virtual hugs to all of you who are also feeling that loss. 

Or perhaps you're just here looking for some of the great patterns that were produced for The Point over the years, and that's cool too. I'm working on getting up everything I designed for The Point up on this site, but it will take a few days so bear with me. I'll also be hosting patterns here from Alyssa, Leia, and Megan K - also formerly of The Point. 

So say tuned, more soon!

Seems I've got a tie thing. Try a Bowtie.

Since I knit this one for that store that owns my soul, it is unfortunately not free. But! This is: Bowtie with Jazze Pha, Outkast, & Sleepy Brown.

EDIT 5/9/09: Due to The Point's unfortunate demise, this pattern is now being offered for free. Download here.

Knitting with Duct Tape

That's me, brazenly going where no knitter has gone before. . . 

DIY: Tear the duct tape lengthwise so you have a strip about a quarter of the width of the roll, and fold it in on itself. Keep pulling this narrow strip off of the roll in one continuous piece and folding it on itself to create your "yarn". Try to cover all the sticky side when you fold it so it will stick to your needles as little as possible. Use large (size 15 or up) plastic or metal needles, and go to town. I did have to clean off my needles midway through the project - some of the adhesive will get on your needles regardless.
