1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help! my mittens need to get a grip! on: January 07, 2009 05:12:42 AM
I knitted these doubleknit wool mittens for my husband cuz its COLD here in MINNESOTA , but he won't wear them because things slip out of his hands! I need suggestions for a remedy ( they took forever to make and I want them to get some use). Any ideas? I sure would appreciate them, thanks       
2  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 34 ENTRIES / mad for mags and Mod Podge on: January 02, 2009 01:55:24 PM
Suddenly I had a bunch of cannisters from food and a shoe box and some other boxes. What to do - decorate them of course! Using brown paper from a recent mail order and Mod Podge I covered the cannisters , I started cutting out words and phrases from some old science mags and alternative newspapers. I tried to customize the containers to the recipients interests or activities. This quickly became addictive! I really liked the way they turned out and my family loved them (I think more than the gifts inside!).    there are more pics here http://www.flickr.com/photos/26513294@N07/sets/72157611842153001/

I had lots of time in the evenings and on the train while traveling from        Portland to St Paul so I knit myself a sweater- something I rarely do . I thought it went well what do you think?

I bought these pants at Savers cuz I loved the pockets but they were too low cut for my taste, so presto chango they became a skirt.

      So I've been hoarding can tabs forever and wanted to use them in a totally cool new way -so I combined them with shoelaces and the usual fabric and hardware to make this backpack. I gave it to my 17year old niece (the art student) and she loves it!
