1  UNITED STATES / Tennessee / Knoxville Knitting/Crocheting Group on: November 10, 2004 07:03:46 AM
Hi all -

There are a couple of us knitters here in Knoxville that have started a group - it's been posted in "Is Anybody Out there", but I wanted to make sure the group could be found easily for anybody interested.  Crocheters are welcome to join too!

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Composition Notebook Journal on: November 09, 2004 07:52:20 AM
I saw this idea on DIY or HGTV - can't remember which, but I wanted to post it because it's quick, easy and super cute!  I made this journal for my neice Leslie who is a cheerleader in middle school.  The nice thing about this project is the composition notebook has a very neat black binding that helps create a finished edge.  Take a look - steps are below.

Materials:
Composition Notebook
Glue - I used some archive safe glue - worked very well
Paper for decorating
Ribbon (optional)
Stickers / other scrapbooking materials as deemed necessary
exacto knife (or some other super sharp cutting device)

Steps:
Glue the paper onto the composition notebook with the paper lining up next to the blank binding.
Wait for the glue to dry, flip it over and trim off the excess paper
Cut the ribbon to the desired length
on the inside front cover, add glue, place the ribbon in the center of the notebook and then add the paper
wait for the glue to dry, flip it over and carefully trip off the excess paper (being extra careful not to cut the ribbon)

Do the same to the back cover

Now - add your stickers, etc to the front to decorate. And voila - a custom journal.

Oh - I found the link to the DIY project - just in case my directions aren't clear:

3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Herb bag? on: November 08, 2004 08:17:49 AM
I apologize if this has been addressed, but I couldn't find the topic anywhere.

I was given an herb bag a few years back as a gift and love it.  It's one of those that you can put in the freezer and use as a cold press or put in the microwave if you need heat for your sore muscles.  We use it all the time and would love to be able to make some for my friends and family for Christmas gifts.  Has anybody ever made one of these?  Do you know what herbs I should put into the bag (and how much of each)?

Here's a link to a site where you can buy them in case I haven't described it very well: http://www.thecompounder.com/warmingbags.html
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting the round w/ different sized needles? on: October 19, 2004 11:06:52 AM
I hope this question hasn't been posted somewhere else, but I couldn't find this topic.  Anyway - I have the Denise interchangeable set and because I knit pretty tightly, my stitches don't want to transfer onto the left handed needle.  I was wondering - can I put a smaller size on the left than is on the right?  The thought being that the right needle determines the size of the loop and the left needle holds it for you to use.  I'm only thinking about going one size down - just to make the transfer easier - like a 15 on the right and a 13 on the left.  Obviously this couldn't be done with regular circular needles, but thought it might w/ the Denise set - or even other interchangeables.

Anybody know why I can't do this? Huh
5  KNITTING / Knitalongs / "Ribbed for her pleasure" scarf on: October 14, 2004 12:37:24 PM
Anybody interested in joining me for an easy ribbed scarf?  Newbies - this is a great project to get started on!

Cast on a multiple of 4 stiches, k2, p2 - repeat to end.  I'm using 10.5's, 32 stiches, lambs pride wool - in a pretty blue.

This pattern is from the Stich N' Bitch book.
