ugh, wristwarmer drama! i typed up the pattern for the wristwarmers because i didn't want to take the book with me (i'm at the beach), and now i'm looking at it and going... eh? it used to seem so logical.
my question: are you supposed to cast off any stitches? do you knit the WHOLE THING flat, or leave off a section? .... or, more logically, is the hole shaped, or is it more of a slit?
has anyone done this on DPNs? this is the first part thats throwing me.. eegh. HELP!!?
question--- what did you use to stick the buttons to the chair? and are you having any problems with buttons falling off?? i loooove buttons, and i used some as 'decorative accents' on a chest i decoupaged tarot cards too, but the buttons fall off pretty easily.... i was hoping/wondering you'd used a different fixative and it worked, so i could start sticking them back on with that as they come off.
madmiffy - one of my friends did that last year, and it was AWESOME. she got a crazy bright-pink-and-silver leotard-thing from a thrift store, some neon blue leggings, and wore arm and leg warmers, tons of silly jewelry and bright makeup. it was fantastic. what are you planning on wearing?
AND - its good to see that there's another buffy fanatic on craftster
owl costume: i had two ideas immediately pop into my head, both aren't super-easy, and they're kind of different owls.. hm. if these make no sense, i apologize, im not really awake yet.
one, sew up a furry costume, make yourself some wings, and add paint your face. this one seems really impractical to me, but that's possibly because the idea of wearing a big furry bodysuit with a belly sounds DREADFUL.
two, the one that i would do, would be make a posterboard body, and wear it like a sandwich board (you know, with straps over the shoulders? protesteres wear them a lot), and wear a mask or paint your face... wings, you could either make something to attach to your arms or just have wings on the back-part of the board..
ha, or you could combine the two! wear a fuzzy bodysuit UNDER the board!
aah! that sounds so cool!! nobody i know has the dedication to throw a party with a theme.. or, you know, a party that goes beyond a gathering of drunk people. sometimes there are movies, or free alcohol (!!!), that's always neat. ... i need new friends.
haha, that's awesome.... oh, and as a random sidenote: i have been sitting here and being obscenely amused by the random naked girl in one of your pictures on myspace. ...the random naked girl, and your facial expression. priceless.
i wish my school would cancel class on halloween actually, even more then halloween...i dont want to go to class the day after. there is NO WAY i'm going to be able to be a productive member of ANYTHING on november first. it is just impossible.
i've done what was indicated by the picture on the website amey posted - but i really feel like i'm just knitting at a different ANGLE then knitting the regular-way, and it hasn't made much of a difference at all. i'm hoping that it will still be a cool hat without the inside-out knitting... or, at least, when it felts it won't make too much of a difference.
as for herringbone stitch on circs - i have no idea.
