1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Intertwined names for baby's room on: September 28, 2012 11:12:44 AM
A friend of mine posted this on her Facebook, and I thought it was just the most amazing idea. So, with her permission, I'm posting it here for all you Craftster's to oogle at too!

She did this in her little boy's room, I think she said she used stickers, but you could use paint or whatever medium you wanted. I thought it would also be great idea for scrapbooking. Her son's name is going horizontal (Aethan), and mom and dad's names (Brittany and Sean) are going vertical. The only thing that makes me sad is that you won't always be able to do this. My name and my fiance's won't work for something like this. But that just means when we have kids, I'll have to think of a baby name that WILL make this work, so I can do it!  Grin

Those......look.... .AMAZING! I have Scandinavian heritage and have been trying to experiment with their baking (I think I inherited my sweettooth from my Norwegian side Tongue). I'll have to stick these on the "To Make" list!

And thank you for the conversion chart. So does "dl" stand for deciliter? I was trying to remember my math/science to figure it out.

It looks great! Though you MUST tell me.......what is that mesmerizing liquid in the decanter in the foreground? I love the way it sparkles in the picture. It reminds me of a potion your fairy godmother would give you to turn you into Cinderella for a night!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help me understand this shawl collar please? on: February 12, 2012 10:58:55 PM
I'm working on "The Dude" (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-dude) for my fiance. I'm ALMOST done with it, but I can't quite tell what the pattern is telling me to do.

I'm doing the shawl collar, I'm at the very end, and this is what the pattern says.....

"Continue working short rows by working 2 fewer stitches each right side row until you have worked to the last 28[28, 28, 30, 30] sts and wrapped your stitches on both RS and WS. After working to the last 28 sts, wrapping and turning on the last WS row, work in 2x2 rib to the end of the row, knitting or purling sts tog with their wraps (in patt), turn and work to the end of the WS in 2x2 rib, knitting or purling sts tog with their wraps (in patt). BO all sts."

The part in italics is what I'm having trouble understanding. Is it telling me to just work the row in pattern, turn, do another row, then bind off? Or am I supposed to be doing decreases where the short-row wraps are?

Wow those look amazing! I love the little details you added to each one, like the seahorse. Very well done; any chance you'd be willing to share some of your secrets?  Grin

Those look great! I love the almost free form look the cables have in the scarf, yet it still evokes the image of a braid.

And that shawl! Shocked What kind of yarn is that and how big is it? Did you knit it with broomsticks?  Tongue

They both look amazing, bravo!

Oh I can't wait to see what these look like when they're all rinsed and dried! I'm curious too what dyes you used. I've seen Jacquard dyes end up this vibrant, is that what you used? If not, please share your secret.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Blocking acrylic yarn? on: November 27, 2011 09:25:26 PM
I'm trying to remember if blocking makes a difference with acrylic yarns. Huh
