1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Quilting Advice for Beginners on: July 12, 2005 02:41:48 PM
quilting has caught my eye for some time and being a huge fan of blankets...(i get cold easily)  So anything that's crafty (and warm) is all right with me in my book. I think my first quilt will be a pinup girl/mod print themed raggy quilt, which seems like it'd be a great beginner's project. I'm so excited i can't wait!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Heat therapy bag pattern? on: July 08, 2005 08:43:14 AM
i have a poor dejected mistake ridden sock that is sitting in the frog pond. I worked on this idea for a bit last night and came up with knitting a tube on dpn's sewing up one end of the tube once it's done and felting it. Then after letting it dry thoroughly (rice molds right?) I'd fill it with rice and maybe use some essential oils to scent it.

The pattern I have so far is:

Size 7 dpn's

co 45 stitches, divide evenly between 3 needles and knit all rounds

continue for desired length (im thinking anywhere from six to seven inches would be a fair length)

If anyone wants to try this out let me know how it goes please!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Heat therapy bag pattern? on: July 07, 2005 01:46:59 PM
I was curious, cause i've heard about the toe up socks with out a mate can often become the bags filled with rice. My grammy made them out of fabric one year, but out of fabric, i mean heavy, thick brocade fabric. I'd like to knit one out of the dejected/abandoned sock I made. If there isnt a pattern i could probably develop one myself but I'm hoping it doesnt come to that.
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: attack of the ugly cell phone. on: July 05, 2005 12:01:10 PM
Thanks for the idea of using model paints.  Is the phone fully useable during the 30-60 day curing period?  Would using the phone or putting it in a bag hurt the paint job at that point?  I don't want to use model paints if it puts my phone out-of-use for 1 or 2 months...  That's crazy! 

I have a flip phone that I think looks like an alligator head.  That sounds weird, but it really does.  I want to paint it green on the outside and add eyes for him.  On the inside around the keys I'll paint him a big mouth. 

Just to be safe, I'd be careful about setting it in things for a week or two, just to be safe, the phone is fully usable, but like oil paints it'll be dry to the touch but you can still mess it up a shade.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Alright, I HAVE to ask, I'm going mad. on: June 21, 2005 02:23:34 PM
i suppose you have to look at it this way...what would you prefer your guests see in your bathroom? a toilet roll sitting on the sink or back of the toilet or a cutesy/kitschy sushi roll or doll?
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Star Shaped Baby Blanket on: June 21, 2005 09:15:46 AM
I'm doing an adult sized one too! i had a black and green one going but i lost the hook i was using to crochet it (i must kill my yarn stash for that one) so i may unravel the bits and rework it into a blankie for my cousin or my friend's new puppy, (yay for white german shepards!)

The current one is a scrapghan original, I've got tons of black yarn (thanks to a one pounder) and partial skeins up the wazzooo. So this blanket is going to be a mega stash buster! wee!

i found a tutorial on G4 about modifying cell phones, they say that model paints work best because they're designed to adhere to plastic, also if you want to fill in the bumps/ridges use some sort of filler/compound and sand it smooth. the paint also takes about 2 days to fully dry and up to 30 - 60 days to fully cure but is usable. also a good thing, model paint comes in a really wide range of colors.

how about acrylic paint? would it scratch off? there really needs to be a more defined board for this
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting for a bf? on: June 16, 2005 09:37:00 AM
I'm thinking the curse is balogna too, i mean..if the relationship was really going well...a sweater wouldnt actually affect it, or a scarf for that matter. Currently I'm in the process of working out details on a blanket my boyfriend has "commissioned" me to make, while it did put some strain on us, now that we've struck a mild compromise, things are good, he's listening to me on the technical and I'm trying (so very hard, mind you) to listen to his design ideas. Just be observent, I wasnt afraid to ask if my SO wanted a scarf or sweater or beanie, he said that he's picky about most things, especially hats, so that was out. He wears shorts and hawaiian shirts year round (mostly) so the sweater was pretty much out. Just remember it's ok to ask..projects like that require some pretty open discussion or feelings could get hurt.
