1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Robot+Guitar Pick+Toggle Clasp+Sparkly Beads=Awesome Bracelet! on: August 29, 2005 05:42:29 PM
Ok, so I found this old guitar pick lying around my desk. And I remember that I used to have a super hot guitar pick bracelet with a toggle clasp, but it got too small, and the plating started coming off, etc. I was like, twelve when my friend bought it for me. (I'm eighteen now and my wrists are fatter!  Grin)

So I had a brainwave to make an equally cool bracelet that would remind me of the one I had before I wore it out. And here it is:



Made with standard beading wire, crimping tubes, a toggle clasp, a few jump rings, and my kickass robot guitar pick!  Cheesy
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / *kills Fair Isle Scarf* Help Please! on: May 04, 2005 12:12:23 PM
Ok...I was getting floats on both sides of the knitting, so I started twisting the yarn for every stitch, but now I get different colored purl bumps in my patches of color! I am working in garter stitch on normal needles. What am I doing wrong?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / A question about stripes... on: April 29, 2005 06:25:39 PM
Okay, I want to make a stripy scarf for my friend's birthday. But my stripes are doing something weird on the other side!



I understand this is probably inevitable, so in order to get all of these "mini stripes" on one side, do I have to do an even number of rows, or odd? I'm not any good at math. I want to make the stripes about an inch wide each, and I'm using number 11 needles. How many rows should I make?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hey, to all you yarn hoarders... on: April 29, 2005 11:15:52 AM
Does anyone happen to have any Lion Brand Fun Fur eyelash yarn, in 113 red, dye lot 1047? It's probably a long shot, but if anyone had any, I'd be willing to pay more than it's worth, I need it to finish my scarf. Sad I checked Ebay, but no one has any listed. I bought this yarn ages ago at a Michael's, so I dunno if anyone had any. I bought it in Maryland? I really wanted my first scarf to be long enough.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting Knewbie needs help!! on: April 28, 2005 05:05:49 PM
Ok, so I'm about halfway through my first scarf. I go back to my S&B book to check and make sure that I am doing it right, but then I realize that after pushing my needle through, I wrap the yarn clockwise instead of counterclockwise! Is this going to be detrimental to my scarf when it comes time to bind it off? So far I've had no problems with it...but maybe it's going to become evil when I finish it, and be like "haha, you didn't wrap counterclockwise, so I'm going to unravel now and make you cry!"
