That cake is adorable. I hope the diapers are not used though Sad lol

Parents love wine. Especially mommies after not drinking for nine months.

Great job. It will be well loved.
212  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Chawlie the three legged octopus on: March 09, 2009 11:27:14 AM
This is Chawlie. All the other octopuses laugh at him because he only has three legs, or tentacles if thats what you want to call them. He decided to move into our home and live with my four month old son. I like to think he is very happy here. He is only one leg short in our household. In octopus world he is missing four legs.

I started making my husband a knit birthday hat (his idea), then it turned into a jelly fish hat, and then I bound off to tightly and Chawlie was born. I used a mixture of cheap yarns, and put him on DPN, but I have no pattern otherwise I would post it. Chawlie was free hand. I hope you like him. My son, Azimuth, sure does.

Oh thanks so much. That is so helpful. I have a tiny apartment with carpet in the living room. I am going to have to lock the kitties in the bedroom. Smiley

What type of pen or pencil do you recommend for marking the fabric with?
215  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Basic Question on: March 07, 2009 08:50:05 PM
I apologize if this question is really basic has been asked already (I wasn't sure what to search for).

I can never get my large pieces of fabric measured right. They always wrinkle and get messed up, so nothing comes out right. I have tried to use pins and irons, but I must nor have been doing it right. Could someone give me a step by step on how to measure without getting loads of wrinkles? Huh
216  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: Excuse me?!?! Dumpster Diving on: March 07, 2009 12:15:48 PM
Thanks for all the great advice. I worry I will try to bring too many things home.

As far as the legality of garbage, it is considered abandoned property. However, it is difficult to connect evidence to the owner of the trash can. Anyone could have thrown something in there. I do know that cops harass homeless people for sitting in the park, so I was curious if that extended to anyone in looking in garbage cans.

I recently found a great essay called "On Dumpster Diving" by Lars Eighner (I can't remember how to spell it). It is about general things and not just crafting, but still very interesting.

Also, do you open bags? If you so do you try to tie them up afterward.

Sorry, I am such a worrywart.

God how did you and the tourist get up there? Brandy seems like a fitting name. Or maybe Icarus.
218  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: Excuse me?!?! Dumpster Diving on: July 14, 2008 04:23:07 PM
I have long been fascinated with the idea of getting things that are waiting for the trash man and giving them new life. Any tips on finding things like yarn? What parts of town pay off? Do the cops ever yell at you? How do you get over the social stigma? And how do you avoid nasty kitchen trash?

Thanks for any help.
219  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: Recycling your old books on: July 14, 2008 04:19:33 PM
Homeless shelters also accept books. At least TPI in Portland did.
220  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What Do You Listen To While Knitting? on: July 12, 2008 02:12:04 PM
I listened to Grapes of Wrath on book tape. That is just the right size for a big project or a bunch of small ones. I talk to my hubby or watch TV. Don't knit while movies are on for some reason. I also like to listen to cheesy 70's music and modern trip rock. And the Kingston Trio.
