  1. I missed issue 61 of Let's Get Crafting Knitting and Crochet and would like to get my hands on it. Is there any where to buy back issues? I keep looking on eBay but have missed out on several occasions.

    Alvin Owl pattern

    I'm struggling with this pattern too - I keep ending up with too many stitches.

    Show us Your Sewing Makes!

    Heres my doggy draught excluder which I made for my sister's cold house. I found the pattern on ebay it was originally from a magazine. This was my first attemped at sewing on a machine since school (24 yrs). Not perfect but it does the job and my nephew thinks I bought it! Love the cushions - I want to make some similar but wasn't brave enough so I strarted with the sausage dog. I know sounds harder but not got to worry so much about sewing in a straight line!

    Thanks everyone. Not superfast took me a while!
  5. I'd like to knit the baby tank top in issue 54 as a xmas gift however the pattern only states "baby tank top". I want to knit this for a three year old. My guess is this would be too small but I'm new to knitting and need help on resizing. I may have been able to find info on the web if I knew the original size. I'm aware there I will not have enough yarn in my kit so have an alternative yarn (particularly as I want to make the mittens too!) I would be grateful for any help. Thanks

    Issue 54 Baby Tank Top - Re sizing?

    Thanks. I did eventually find a suitable tank top pattern on ravelry. It was surprisingly hard to find one without cabling etc. There's a nice pattern on it too which I might use after xmas. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dressing-for-style-in-fair-isle--his-vest-w356

    Here's my collection of makes. I'd not knitted sine I was 7 (chick egg cosie in the Brownies!) so I was pretty pleased with myself.
