YKYACW...You see ShinyThings' avatar and go into ms paint and make 10 more in different skin colors, hair colors and clothing colors...Just because you can.

YKYCW... you comb and collect your cat's fur with visions of spinning the greatest orange yarn ever.

"Here kitty kitty, mommy needs a new hat."

I felted my cats hair once...it was acually cool, but I threw it out because the thought was kinda nasty.

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you let a muggle down nicely when they ask you to knit something? on: June 29, 2007 04:48:51 PM
I don't usually have much trouble with folks asking me to knit them stuff other than the odd joker who thinks I haven't heard it before.  Roll Eyes  But just a few weeks ago the weirdest thing happened.  I was stopped by a guy asking for money.  Not unusual, well except for the part about him asking for exactly $4, that was slightly odd and he wasn't getting it anyway on my 'poor' day (right before pay day).  I told him I was sure I didn't have that much change but that he could have whatever change I had, it took me ages to find my purse in my giant craft bag.  In this time he was checking out the scarf I was wearing and said he liked it very much.  This was nice I thought, and made me feel better about getting my purse out while standing next to a complete stranger (which I am sad to report has always made me feel nervous, after which always comes a feeling of guilt at having been so cynical about strangers Embarrassed).  So anyhow, what I ended up giving him probably added up to a little less than 2 bucks, at which point he asked me if I would knit him a scarf.   Shocked  I'll pay you for it of course, he says, and proffered his mobile phone number so I could let him know when it was done.   Huh  WTF!?  I really had no idea what on earth to say, my standard replies weren't going to cut it here as the whole situation was so illogicall. 

I would be a little confused too! He's asking for money, but can pay you for a scarf and has a mobile phone?

I created an Etsy account a little while back but haven't listed any items yet.  Does it always take a few days for the listing to appear, and is there really that much downtime? 

Usually the items come up right away, that was just a glitch. There really isn't that much dontime at all. And when there is, its only a few minutes at a time.

You go into Michaels craft store looking for the felt and and wind up helping 5 people find what they need. Then the lady behind the desk asks you if you want to apply for a job there because "None of the other youngsters know where stuff is!"

YKYACW...You wish you did have a job there!

I agree, but there are alot of positives. The forums are usually quite nice. Just because a few people are rude, doesn't mean they all are. I do agree with the pay more view less thing. It just pisses me off really. I set up my shop, get ready and my listing costs 2 times as much? Less time really sucks, because people usually wait a while longer, especially for those selling seasonal things.......
