1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / felting superwash yarn on: August 24, 2009 06:58:48 AM
So I bought some yarn for various felting projects. The problem is that I didn't notice that it's superwash. I have tried to felt it just by running it thru lots of cycles, but it hasn't worked yet. Is there anything I can do to make it work? HELP! 
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / holes when increasing in mitten pattern on: August 24, 2009 06:55:13 AM
I've been using a mitten pattern that, of course, has some increasing. The problem I'm having is that where I've increased there ends up being holes. Any thoughts on how to fix this?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / felting with partially synthetic yarn on: July 16, 2009 08:23:16 PM
Does anyone know if it is possible to felt with yarn that is part wool and part acrylic? I'm thinking that it should work but take longer and/or not shrink as much.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / multi-textured baby blanket on: June 01, 2009 05:37:05 PM
I made this blanket a month or so ago for samann1121's new baby.

I used this book http://www.amazon.com/Harmony-Guides-Knit-Purl-Stitches/dp/1596680563/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1243902846&sr=8-1 to find interesting textures.
I had trouble with
1) 2 of the squares curling and
2)making all the squares the same size
Any thoughts?
5  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 39 ENTRIES / Lightbulb decoupaged with ikea lamps on: June 01, 2009 05:25:27 PM
Sorry, all the photos are linked, this is my first try at this.
I was changing a lightbulb and had a lightbulb moment.

I used decoupage (modge podge) to cover the bulb. All of the lamps are from the most recent IKEA catalog.
A few more angles:

And then, I decided that I needed to know how strong the decoupage made the lightbulb.
So I smashed it:

Not as strong as I hoped but a lot more than the plain bulb.
