1  Re: Dishalicious Dishcloth/Washcloth Swap Round 3 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by KnitsyBitsy on: July 08, 2007 11:39:17 AM
Finally I'm getting around to posting pictures!  I received a wonderful package from the very talented Mrs.Veghead on Thursday:


First, both washcloths were wrapped in cute little bundles with some Burt's Bees products.  Mrs.Veghead how did you know I love Burt's Bees?!  (Then again, who doesn't?  Grin)


Here's the knitted dishcloth in a pretty basketweave design, and Bay Rum Exfoliating Soap and Banana Hand Crme.


And because she's so versatile, she crocheted me the other dishcloth!  They're both a lovely Granny Smith Apple green, which matches my kitchen perfectly!  Thank you so much Mrs.Veghead!  Kiss

Wheeee!  I received from berol last night!  Since we're across the pond from each other we agreed to exchange little goodies exclusive (or so we think) to our respective countries as well as dishcloths.  I got some great stuff!  Here's everything all together as it arrived:


A nice note on a cute postcard, yummy chocolates, a box of tea, and two beautiful dishcloths tied up with a pretty lacy ribbon.  (I've sampled most of the candy already.  Yum!  And I'm enjoying a cup of tea as I type  Smiley)


This dishcloth is so pretty!  I love the lacy look to it.  Funny enough, it matches my dining room perfectly!  I may have to find a use for it in there, like as a doily under my wine decanter, instead of using it for a dishcloth if that's alright with berol.  Smiley


This picture does not do justice to this dishcloth.  The stitch pattern is so cool!  I know a bit of crochet (though knitting needles are my weapon of choice), and I spent a while last night looking at the stitches wondering, how did she do that?   And I love that she thought to add the little loop on one corner: I imagine that will help it dry much easier.  Oh, and I also must add how soft this dishcloth is.  I don't know if it's the stitch pattern, or the yarn, but it just feels nice to touch. Cheesy

Thank you so much berol!  Grin

3  Re: what's your favourite knitting tip or trick? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by KnitsyBitsy on: March 23, 2007 08:26:50 AM

Just a quick tip--use a dental flosser (the ones that are flexible plastic with a little loop at one end) to thread beads onto yarn. 

You don't mean this type, right?


Trying to figure out how this would work...

I think she's referring to what I've always called a dental floss threader.  You thread the floss into this thin plastic thing, then "thread" the floss between your teeth.  It's great for people with braces (which is how I know of them).  Here's a picture of one that I found for you:

That's a great idea to use them to thread beads!

Thanks for explaining it Jen!  I re-did my Balkan block last night and it came out much better!  Here's both my Depression and Balkan blocks:



Yeah, the colors are a bit crazy on the Depression block.  I decided to do this to get rid of some of my scraps, and as I was putting the block together I realized just how much some of the scraps clash!   Cheesy

I got a wonderful package from Jazzybelle last night!  I was so excited to get it!  And I just love everything!  I took lots of pics, so this will be pretty picture-heavy:

First, I got cute notebook:


A Cruella DeVil wallet:


A crocheted purse that looks like Pluto!  How creative!  Love this little cutie!


A keychain that had me confused for a brief moment.  Looks like Nemo's aquarium on the outside...


But there's an emergency sewing kit inside!  So clever!


And I got a great non-Disney bonus!  Shortly after the swap started, I looked at Jazzybelle's website and commented to her how much I loved her crocheted hats.  Well, she sent me a hat, and a scarf and earrings to match!  (Oh, and the little flower that was in the notebook picture was wrapped around the scarf.  I'm thinking that could be wrapped around a ponytail?)


Thank you for everything Jazzybelle!   Kiss

6  80's Cartoon Barrettes in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by KnitsyBitsy on: June 20, 2005 03:44:08 PM
To begin with, this has nothing to do with the 80's cartoon swap that's going on.  My friend had an 80's-themed birthday party over the weekend, and I decided to make some fun barrettes to wear!  I used Leah's wonderful instructions for making marble magnets, but instead of attaching magnets to the back, I wound pink ribbon around two little barrettes, glued the marbles on, then glued little pink rhinestone hearts in the middle.  I'm so pleased with how they turned out!

   

Sorry for the glare in the picture, it's the best I was able to get.  In case you can't tell, the images are Rainbow Brite, a My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, and a Care Bear.
