11  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / looking for shrug pattern on: April 16, 2005 02:39:54 PM
Does anyone know of any shrug pattern for crochet that looks like "I do" from Knitty? http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTido.html
I love this, but I'm a crocheter and and haven't the faintest about how to knit. Any ideas?
12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / What I learned about spray paint... on: April 16, 2005 09:51:40 AM
For my boyfriend's birthday, I decided to make him a "guide to Japan" in a box because we're going there in about a month. My materials for the "box" were one of those old jumbo cookie tins, a carboard stencil, black spray paint and red spray paint. I covered the tin with black, and that went well enough. HOWEVER, a few days later, I tried to stencil with the red spray paint.

Not only did I learn that I need to cover the whole surface of the tin before I paint, and that I need to use something a little more efficient that card board for a stencil, but I also learned that red spray paint eats black spray paint! This actually would have made for a cool effect if the part that I was attempting to stencil hadn't bled.

So, after a few days of sanding and re-blacking, I attempted a red sharpie on the beast....and I was pleasantly surprised! While it doesn't look anything like what I was going for, it did turn gold, and I love the way it looks.

Moral of the story: f*** spray paint, I'm stickin' with my sharpies!
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Yarn holder? on: April 14, 2005 10:24:15 PM
Hi there,
I'm not sure where exactly I saw it, but it was this clear plastic canister thing that you keep your yarn in to keep it from rolling away while you're working on your project. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I'd love to get one...
Thanks!
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Spring scarf! (AKA my first posted project) on: April 14, 2005 10:02:19 PM
Wee! Three days of avoiding homework, and this is what I've come up with.





It's about 4 feet long (which I think is too short, but I ran out of yarn, so whaddya gonna do?). It used to be one of my first attempts to make a cap, but I like it much better as a scarf.

Comments/critiques welcome...Thanks!
15  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Making pencil permanent? on: April 03, 2005 05:53:09 PM
This may be a silly newbie question, but how do you go about making pencil on paper permanent? I thought perhaps hair spray, but I'd rather not destroy what I'm working on before I talk to someone who knows what they're doing.

Thanks!
