1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Resize too-big jeans TUTORIAL on: June 26, 2009 12:46:12 PM
i'm trying this but not quite understanding how you're doing step 6 so that it lines up somewhat neatly and without a lot of extra bulkiness.  i put the right sides of the unfolded band together but it made a weird pucker at the top.  the belt loop would've probably covered it up but it was bulky enough to seem like it was going to be uncomfortable to wear. 
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: something's not adding up! on: December 14, 2008 01:38:03 PM
So I pass the slipped stitch over the stitch created by the k2tog for the PSSO.  Is that right?  I think what I was doing was working the slip 1, then the k2tog, then the next two stitches for the PSSO.  Noooow I get it.   Wink  Thank you!

Hi!  Wondering if someone could help me figure out what's going on here...I'm trying to make this scarf (the version without fringe) 

http://www.thisisknit.ie/swishscarf.pdf

and it says to cast on 31 stitches.  But then for row two, doesn't that come out to be more than 31 (I'm getting 41)?  Both adding it up mentally and trying it out, it's not working out right.  I'm sure it's probably me doing something wrong rather than a pattern typo.  Hmmm... 

Here I'm trying to explain how I understand it, the numbers in parentheses being number of stitches...hope it makes some sense.

k1 (1) [yo, k1 (1), slip 1 (2), k2tog (4), psso (6), k1 (7), yo, k1 ( 8 )]

so the stuff in the brackets adds up to 8 for me, times 5 as it instructs equals 40, plus the k1 at the beginning equals 41.   Huh

Are you on Ravelry?  There is a free (in English) pattern on there for equally comfy-looking felted handcuffs on there, called "Fuzzackles".  As well as some other naughties.
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Baby food jars on: September 30, 2008 11:39:57 PM
not so crafty but i love small jars for keeping herbs/spices/tea, especially since i tend to buy them in bulk.
6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / i need, rather than have, something to recycle for this one... on: September 30, 2008 11:34:34 PM
i'm looking for creative ways to recycle something to package my handmade jewelry!  anyone have any ideas, sites, anything?  thought about (well washed) squares of styrofoam trays that things like mushrooms sometimes come on for earring cards.

i think they were originally for my brother's "magic: the gathering" cards or something similar...  got 12 of 'em.  might do something not-so-crafty and just write quotes or something and use these instead of laminating.

haha, i'll let you know if i happen to go on a scrubbie-making spree!  i've been thinking of sewing myself some reusable produce bags and now i think maybe i'll just toss a few of these many nets in with the reusable grocery bags instead.  that'll take care of a few...though i'm worried it will confuse the cashiers (they seem to have a hard enough time wrapping their heads around the fact that i don't WANT a bag, not that there weren't any to be found in the produce section), i'll have to make sure to cut off all labels and stuff.

any crafty ideas on what to do with these?  other than maybe cutting into strips and knitting/crocheting into scrubbies for either dishes or shower...which is fine, but one only needs so many scrubbies!  and i've got a HEAP of these things...  in winter they are good to hold suet for the birds.  what else?

yeah, definitely no need to buy special fabric...a cotton sheet should work fine!   Smiley
