1891  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Geek Pride Swap! (Sign-ups Nov. 04 - Nov. 14) on: November 14, 2005 09:05:11 PM
I'm excited about it, too.  I'm wondering if I put enough info up...  Can i add that I just bought a 9 1/2 inch tall posable figure of Tartarus from Halo 2?  He's real sweet looking.  He's currently battling with my figure of Ghozer from Ghost Busters.  I'm a nerd for toys Tongue

I am not sure how your project will felt.  I think the wool part will felt, but the acrylic definately will not.  What you can try is knitting a swatch and felting it.  You don't necessarily have to use a washing machine to felt your projects.  You can knead it in your sink, if you have the time and energy.

Cascade is another good brand that felts well, but all you really need for felting is a non acrylic yarn meaning your yarn needs to be made out of a fuzzy animal.  so stuff from sheep, alpaca, angora rabbit... 
And it doesn't hurt to ask your yarn supplier for help or even if they'll order the yarn for you.

The basics for felting is just your project, a little detergent, and a pair of jeans.  You don't have to get the felting detergent or felting bag or anything else. 

Post up your pics when you can!

I finished the second pair.  I'm not sure when I'm going to felt them, though.  I'll post pics after I do.
Now I'm onto the next project:  the Belle Star poncho from knitty for my bf's sister.  Only four more projects and I'm finished with christmakah gifts!

aw shoot.  i had a very small amount when i finished the first pair.  i kept thinking:  I'm going to run out, i'm going to run out.  but hmm..  where did you run out at?  if it was on your first sock maybe you could unravel some of it and make part of the toe another color.  i did that with a bag i was making--  i had one panel and the gusset finished, but not enough for the second panel, so i unravel the first and knit that yarn into the second until they were even and finished the bag in a different color.  it turned out very nice.

This is great.  Way better than what I expected when I saw the title.  I'm sure your aunt will love it.  I know mine would!

I love this!  I used to get Orthotricyclen, but then my copay went up to $25 and I already pay $75 for my other meds so I switched to the generic brand ($10).  It's in a yellow square case, not as sturdy as those pink ones.  I tried putting stickers on my old one, but they'd always come off.  And I told the pharmacist not to keep giving me compacts because I always reused the same one, but they gave me a new one anyway.
Great job.  Maybe I can make my yellow one fun, too.

Yes, I love it, too!  The design of it makes me want to put buttons on it (pin backed).
