41  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I don't knit but I need this "knitting/knotting" yarn on: November 30, 2012 11:47:20 PM

I bought the above yarn at Hobby Lobby a few months ago. I have long since tossed out the package and don't remember the name of it.
I know someone's going to say "just go to Hobby Lobby and see" but the nearest one is nearly seventy miles away and it would be more efficient for me to order it online, if I can.
I tried looking it up online but I have no idea what it's called. I had someone tell me it's called "eyelash yarn" but searching "purple eyelash yarn" is very broad.
I do remember that the package said the yarn could be used to knit a scarf or knotted in a few places to make a knotted scarf. The package also had a cartoonish girl on it that was wearing a fuzzy scarf made of the yarn.
I'm attempting to crochet the yarn for the mane and tail of a plushie I'm making  and I have a feeling that I'll be needing more.
I know I said I'm crocheting but I posted it here because I hoped maybe a knitter would have used it or heard of since it was aimed at knitting.
Thanks for any help!
42  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Masterball pincushion on: November 30, 2012 12:57:26 AM
I've been playing Pokmon for nearly as long as it's been available in the US.
I have loads of felt, especially purple (since it IS one of my favorite colors), that I got really cheap.
One day, while playing Pokmon Black, I suddenly had a brilliant idea: make a Masterball pincushion.
So I did a search of the patterns saved to my computer and found a simple ball pattern (http://www.thesilverpenny.com/FeltBall.html) that I had saved. I made half the segments in purple and half in white. I also cut some vaguely oval shapes from pink felt and glued them on along with an M cut from white felt. The black band, black circle, and white circle were all sewn on and are also made of felt.

43  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hello people :3 on: November 28, 2012 10:41:37 PM
I'm twenty-three and learned to sew, craft, cook and bake at my grandmother's and mother's elbows, which means that I learned by watching them.
I have many a happy memory that includes some form of art with my grandmother. I especially loved watching her draw out patterns on newspaper. She would often go shopping, find something she liked, turn it inside-out to study it then go home and make something similar, only much nicer.

I need to get myself back into a crafting spirit. I have such a large craft stash but no ideas, which is sad.

My family has learend to live with finding pins, needles, and bits of thread in a trail wherever I've gone.

On another note:
I was once a member of this site some time ago. I shared an account with my younger sister, who took over because I was more into DeviantArt because I have loads of friends there.
Sadly, she is very childish and I decided not to go back to that account (I didn't want to be associated with some of the things she said), just to let her keep it but I never made one for just me.
The account didn't get limbo'd or anything, but the email attached to it is no longer valid due to such a long period of not being checked (I had made it to go with the craftster account and she never checked it).
