You could make lip gloss and add little bits of it to tint the gloss.  If it's *that* old, though, it might not be a good idea...

Wow!  That's really awesome!  But I must say, I've been looking for a good, cheap pair of Doc Marten's on Ebay lately, so it hurts my heart a bit to see them all chopped up.  But then again, I adore mary janes with all my heart, so...  It evens out.   Wink

Rosebride, I found that my HP scarf improved a lot after blocking.  since it's a tube, blocking makes everything lie flat and straightens everything out.  It makes it less bulky, too - as I was knitting it, I was unsure as to whether it'd really be practical to wear, since it's so thick and so bulky.  But after blocking, the scarf lies, flat, is even, and drapes better.  so that's my two cents.

I see...Thanks! Kiss Even though I was feeling lazy, I blocked it anyway.  It's just about dry right now, and you're right, it does seem much flatter and less stiff. I never understood the magic that a bit of water can do, but I've become a believer! Wink

P.S. Luv2stitch, those scarves are beautiful!

Yay!  Congrats, everyone on their scarves!  I just finished knitting mine today.  (yes, it did take me that long...) Now I just have to block it and add on the tassels and I'll be all set...

Now, I have a question...Not that I'm lazy or anything (hah!) but what's the advantage to blocking a scarf?  I mean, I understand the importance of blocking a sweater or something, but a scarf just seems to me like it would be the same before and after...  (As you can see, I've never blocked anything before Tongue )

I did 15 stripes instead of 19 because it was just getting too long...and who wants to knit a scarf the first week in July? (spring turned into summer...jeez was it boring to do!)

You know, I was just wondering about that.  I think I'm going to run out of yarn around stripe 16 or so...but I really wanted to do all 19.  How long is yours?  It was so hard for me to find this yarn I might just have to settle with 16.  I just hope it's long enough... Undecided

i saw your picture and thought 'aww i remember when mine was that little'. haha, but i got way ahead of schedule

"Little"?  Oh dear, mine must be super-little then.  I'm only on the beginning of the third stripe. Tongue

i seamed up the bottom loosely because people didn't understand how it could be a scarf. but i'm going to take it out before i put fringe on.

You know, that's a really good idea.  I tend to KIP a lot, and people are always like "...wait...how's that a scarf?" and I have to explain it to them...Most people think it's a really long hat. Cheesy

Wow, I've been meaning to knit up one of these for quite a while...  I could never find the yarn, but I took a trek up to Patternworks while on vacation, and I found the Utopia there.  So I've finally started!  I'm doing a Gryffindor scarf and I've got 10 rows done.

You know, I was really intimidated about knitting in the round at first, (It's my first time Wink ) but it's really not so bad.  I think I prefer it to regular knitting! Grin

P.S.  I'm so jealous of you guys who are already done/farther than me!  Your scarves look fabulous!

That is so gorgeous!  It really does look like autumn leaves.  Wink  It would look awesome with a simple black dress in the fall.

I agree! For the first few days I sulked over said persons actions, but when I was skimming through the book I came accross a reference to an argument/disagreement/call it what you may, between said persons, and started to wonder what if affected person was instructing other said person to go through with actions, but said person didn't really want to, but knew he had no choice.


I never thought about it before, but now that it's mentioned, I really hope that's the case...  I still have a lot of faith in the hated person.  I think something was going on between the two people that we didn't know about, because although the hated person did the hated thing, I don't think the person was really doing it for the reasons we think the person did it for...  Does that make sense? Huh
