1  UNITED STATES / Missouri / Help - Looking for yarn stores to visit on: June 22, 2007 09:15:38 AM
My sister and I will be going to a family reunion in Branson, MO for a week this summer and we would like to hit a few yarn stores on the way there and back to make the drive more palatable.

We are going to go to both Springfield and St. Louis, so if anyone has any great yarn stores that they have either been to or heard of I would greatly appreciate the input...we would also be willing to go around Branson of course during the week  Tongue (might be necessary for my sanity!)

Details of swap:
This swap is dedicated to the many crafty ways to use Perler beads (or any generic brand of this type of bead).  If you dont know what a Perler bead is http://www.perlerbeads.com/ is a really good place to start.  There are other brands of this type of bead, I personally dont know what they are called, but if you know a brand, please leave a message in the thread!

Basically this swap should be pretty easy, it would likely be a good first swap if you are a newbie.  You will make 3 medium items or 4 small items out of Perler beads (be creative, there are the multi colored, glow in the dark, and sun catcher beads) based on the info that your partner provides you.  And make sure its something your proud off and would like to recieve if you were in your partners shoes.
Also, if you have experience with Perler beads, please dont send something you have already made and no longer want.  Please make sure that the item is made for this swap, and based off your partners info!  No one wants hand me downs 

For inspiration please see:
Round 1 Swap Gallery:

If anyone has some great sites for graphs and the like, please post it in the swap thread and I will move the link up to the third post on this page...to get us started I have added a few there already.  Also if you google image a picture, I am sure you can come up with a bunch of stuff.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HELP - Curling on: January 24, 2007 08:48:41 AM


I just started knitting this scarf for my sister using the Dimples stitch out of the first Vogue stitchionary.  I am using Debbie Bliss's Cashmerino Aran on size 8 needles if that matters.

The problem I am having is that it is curling something fierce at the bottom.  This picture was taken right after I had stretched it out a little.  Will this problem be resolved through blocking or will it always do it?  I read the FAQ and don't think that that information applies since this isn't a straight stockinette (if I am wrong I apologize) and I don't really want to add a border as I think it will detract from the pattern.

Thanks for any help that can be given...Whit

Looking through the archive of the first four bookmark swaps I am totally jealous!  So, I want to do another spin of this swap...anyone interested? 

Here are the links to the first 4 swaps:

Bookmark Swap Round 2 Gallery
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=44867.0

Bookmark Swap Round 3 Gallery
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51424.0

***If anyone has the link to the Round 1 and 4 galleries please put it in the thread because I can't find them!***

I was thinking about sign-ups from 2/1-2/28 and a sendout date of 4/2...what does everyone think?

I think I am going to let everyone pick the number of bookmarks they send and receive as well, but I will be putting a maximum on it and I think it will be 7.

Hopefully some interest will be generated for this swap to continue!
