1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Changing colours - what am I doing wrong? on: October 02, 2005 01:56:49 AM
Bearing in mind that I am a complete beginner and even so haven't picked up needles in years, I decided to make a striped scarf yesterday, but I'm doing something wrong and I'm not sure what.

When I change the colours, the first stitch of the last row of the previous colour is coming up into the first row of the new colour. I'm changing the yarn at the other side, though.

I'm not sure if any of that made sense. Here's a photo:





Also, I'm using a 60% cotton, 40% acrylic. Do I need to block it?

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Christmas Swap? on: September 27, 2005 02:08:53 AM
I looked and looked but I don't think this has been done before. It must have, though, so I hope I'm not stepping on any toes.

That said, I'm almost completely ready for Christmas this year (thanks to the Christmas craftalong) and I've a little extra crafting energy for a swap.

I'm thinking along the lines of crafty_dame's halloween swap, where you send two small items or one small and one medium (effort, not physical size) item and maybe pad out your package with a couple of little store bought items.

You could make a couple of ornaments or a stocking or cards and gift tags.

I'm thinking along the lines of stuff that you might have been making for other people so that it's no trouble to make an extra one or two.

FYI, the halloween swap I was talking about is here:

5  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Sydney spinners / wet felters / needle felters / fibre artists? on: September 27, 2005 01:20:57 AM
I'm really into spinning and fibre arts at the moment and dabble in a little wet felting and needle felting when I have the time.

Anyone else in Sydney with similar interests?

I was hoping that we could either make this thread a place to share our resourses and tips or that maybe we could have some kind of meetup or crafty gathering?

SQUIDS! OCTOPI! CUTTLEFISH!! OH! THE SWEET MOLLUSKS!

Craftin' with mollusks in mind, let your imagination go wild. A cephalipod case (get it?), a stuffed giant octopus, a skirt with an embroidered squid. I'd personally like to see a knit hat with 8 legs and an ink steam, but that's just me.

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Seven Deadly Sins Swap? on: September 24, 2005 09:46:19 PM
We could either make something to do with each sin, ie. 7 bookmarks, each themed to a sin or 7 shrinkiedink charms, etc, or we could chose our favourite sin.

Ideas:

Gluttony: a photo frame covered in M&Ms
Wrath: a toy to take your aggression out on
Sloth: a pillow
Avarice: a tshirt printed with 'it's all about me'
Envy: green-eyed stuffie monster
Lust: embroidered, lacy pants
Pride: decopaged mirror

ok, some of those are crap ideas, but you know what I mean.
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Swap etiquitte: taking over the second round of a swap... on: September 24, 2005 08:06:17 PM
I just noticed that someone has taken over the second round of a swap that I organised. I'm really, really offended by this as the instigator didn't even have the courtousy of asking me whether I was intending to do another (though, I've mentioned it all the way through the first swap thread and gallery).

Am I being super sensitive or is this extremely rude?
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Bathroom revamp swap? on: September 24, 2005 07:57:12 PM
Anything bathroom related:

  • paint a shower curtain
  • embroider a handtowel and washer
  • make some soaps and a body wash
  • decorate a soap dish
  • weave a bathmat
  • create some toilet themed art (ok, maybe not)
  • SUSHI TOILET ROLL HOLDER
10  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Pin-up girl swap angels FOUND!! thank you! on: September 14, 2005 11:46:05 PM
It looks like we have two flakes in the pin-up girl swap.

I was hoping to have four (three, plus me) angels to each make something small, so that no one has to make a full swap worth of stuff.

Any volunteers?
