akredhead received the package I sent her of buttons and a couple zippers and she asked me to post my pics.  I only have one and now I'm wishing I had gotten close ups of some of the buttons.  They have neat textures and designs.

I have this really great thrift store near me that selss all kinds of sewing/knitting/etc supplies.  They have GRIPS of buttons.  They're all nice and some are pretty unique.

I think it's either you or me, L.  I don't have any experience organizing yet.

Wow, I love it.  I think it would make a fun wall hanging as well page-next-to-page.  I can see lots of different varieties of this and all of them selling!
1906  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Danica Scarf from Knitty- attempt entrelac! on: January 05, 2006 09:37:00 PM
Okay.
I pfb'ed like this:
Yarn in front of needle (ofcourse) insert needle behind the front stitch, wrap yarn, pull that back out ... like a regular purl
but don't drop the stitch off the left needle!
then insert needle behind the back stitch--here I just pushed the needle the opposite way through the loop on the left needle so your insertion needle is coming towards you (basically), wrap yarn, pull that back out
drop the stitch off the left needle

Does this help?
1907  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: The 2006 wishlist swap! on: January 05, 2006 09:09:42 PM
Hi!  I'm from Iowa, USA.  I'm 22, I graduated last May from the University of Iowa with a doublemajor in English and Art and a minor in Art History.  I love to craft since I don't have enough room in the apartment to make art!  I live here with my boyfriend of seven years and my kitty, Caliope.  In July, we're moving to Denver!

Thank you in advance to whomever chooses from my list!

Crafts
1)  snap holder for my purse---  something small and rectangular in a bright color so I can easily see it when I'm digging for my lip gloss, breath mints, all those things a girl needs.  Maybe 3x5?
2)  So-Fresh Carpet Cleaner---  This recipe is on page 55 of Jean Railla's book, "Get Crafty: Hip Home Ec"  I checked my copy out from the public library, but I don't have any essential oils to add to it.
3)  regular ol' beanie hat---  Just the regular hat.  I'd like it in aqua and orange, but either one as a solid would be cool.Thank you, orangeabsinthe!
4)  full apron---  for painting and cooking!Thank you!
5)  kitty crinkle bag  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57920.msg576150;topicseen#msg576150
6)  Pumpkins  http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTpumpkins.html
7)  Hot tamale---  I would like it a plain color, not black, and no flame design.  http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATThottamale.html
8 )  Cleaves---  I would love, love, love one of these!  A brown or brown tweed.  http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTcleaves.html
9)  Long Wristwarmers... Forearmwarmers?
10)  Felted Marsupial Tote--- from Stitch n Bitch Handbook in aqua and orange
11) Small Trellis for Indoor Ivy---  Or it could just be some wire twisted funkily  (is funkily even a word?)  my ivy is tiny, and indoor, so maybe something a foot high?
12) Cat Sofa  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=30336.0
13)  Mushroom Magnets--- How cute are these?!  http://www.fuzzytown.com/catalog-nature.htm
14)  stuffy-toaster with toast---  Something similar to this cute lil item.  If it could fit in the palm of my hand/your hand, that would be even cuter.  http://www.spiralandcircle.com/wanroom%20magnet.jpg

Supplies
1)  colored thread---  I have bright orange, bright blue, and navy blue.  I prefer bright colors, but you never know when you may need a color!
2)  tiny ink stamps---  One inch or smaller.  I have a flamingo that I adore.
3)  One bright blue sparkly medium Gelly Roll pen
4)  bunch o grapevine---  I have a sweet tut for making a mourning dove bird nest and a skep  (a beehive), but I don't have any grapevine and I'm not sure where to get it.
5)  polymer clay
6)  beads!---  transparent, faceted, teardrop... really any kind will be great!Thank you!
7)  stickers!
8 )  shrinky dink paper
9)  felt squares---  I currently have red, several different pinks, orange, and black.
10)  jewelry kit---  I want to learn how to make jewelry, but I don't have the basic supplies like clasps, the type of wire or string that you put beads on, jump rings..  findings?  Any help would be great!
11)  straight knitting needles---  Please, I don't much care for plastic ones.  Metal is fine.  And if you get them from a thrift store--great!  I get most of my items from thrift stores.  Here's the sizes I need, but don't feel you have to get more than one pair:  US  2, 5, 7, 9, 12, 13
12)  stitch holders--- they look like giant safety pins

Miscellaneous
1)  seeds---  herbs, cacti, you-name-it!  Here's what I already have:  oregano, chives, calendula, mallow (zebrina), lavender, basil, catnip, thyme, mint, and german chamomile.
2)  garden guide---  any helpful advice for raising plants in a small, apartment setting.  I also would like information on how to dry your own herbs and teas for later use.  And how to dry and store seeds from flowering plants.
3) information on Denver---  I'm moving in half a year and I'm starting to get anxious so any advice is great.  Good places to live, good apartment/townhouse rentals, your favorite trails, info on crafting/art communities!

Thanks again!  And I can always add more...

Those last stitch markers are so neat! Are they feathers?

I agree, those stitch markers are awesome.

Was anything happening with this?  Are there any more interested people?
(Is anyone kinda cross that they changed the nightly schedule?)
1910  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Inuyasha swap?? on: January 04, 2006 11:01:45 PM
Oh MAN!  I was just directed to this from a wishlist swap where someone mentioned that there was an Inuyasha swap and I was like, "Oh please I hope it's not finished!"  I'm so in.  Oh I can't wait...
