1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Finish on Knitpicks Options on: August 11, 2007 07:54:25 AM
Has anyone had the finish on their knitpicks options go dull? Mine are no longer shinny and smooth. The nickel has gone funny, and well looks like an old 'nickel.' They are particularly bad around the join - the tips are still smooth.

hihihi learned a new word today...clogs.
thank you all for your compliments

Are you from Amsterdam? I have the exact same pair of wooden shoes that we picked up while visiting my husband's Oma and my father-in-law tells me that the markings (arrows) on the wooden shoes are for Amsterdam.

anyway, you are really talented. I saw the posting of your children's rooms and the dutch clay figurines are really creative.

Vaseline can leave a greasy stain on your clothes. I don't have thunder thighs or chicken legs, I'm somewhere in between, but I sometimes do have this problem and I have found that diaper rash cream works the best. It soothes the area and helps to clear it up, while preventing further chafing.

I know... I just don't know where to buy dowels here... and the chopsticks i've found are not good for it... like thick to thin... so they don't work... I'll look for dowels once i've moved... but still... they wouldn't work for the purpose of this topic... Tongue

You can get dowels at any hardware store!
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Stamp Collection! (with pictures!) on: May 24, 2007 04:31:02 PM
I used to collect stamps as a kid and they are usually only worth $$ if they are unused with no post mark, the perforated edges are clean, and the backing were the glue was is clean and in good shape. I remember as a kid you could buy stamps in a bag for a buck or two at Kmart and and then buy a book to collect and display them in - was like collecting stickers when sticker albums were popular. Most stamps that are worth money are those that were special runs i.e. not your everyday postage stamp (unless there was a major printing error) and this is what was mainly in these bulk packages you used to be able to buy at Kmart.

Some dollar stores (at least around here) are carrying plastic needles - so you don't have to use your Susan Bates crystalites. I think I'll have to give this one a try!

It's not Value City, but Market something-or-other, not Worldmarket - maybe Marketplace?? Anyway, you might also want to check out Kirklands, if there is one in your area - they have super cheap and nice stuff. (I live in a border city, so we frequently shop in the US) We got our reception thank- you gifts there - little china pumpkin candle holders for $1.99

Edit: I just noticed you live in Ohio - there must be a Kirklands there - they are all over Michigan. (I live on the Ontario/Michigan border)

Sadly, bird cages are expensive. I looked for links for you because I *really* like that idea. Here are bonsai links:

http://www.bonsaiboy.com/catalog/under.html

You can get crafty and jazz them up. Maybe an origami hanging from a branch?

Actually they're not! I recently bought a brid cage for our wedding at Home Sense for around $15.00 (I know for sure it was under $20). Home Sense is a Canadian store, but it has an American equivalent. Market - something-or-other. It is like the Winners version of a home store and I know Winners is like TJ Maxx. Maybe someone else here knows the store I'm talking about??
We are using the bird cage instead of a money/card box. It's a decent size, big enough for a large card to slip through the wires.

elann.com has their own yarn line that is just as cheap as knitpicks, plus you get credits for every purchase you make. Their prices are in US and CDN dollars.

Beautiful shawl. I'll be knitting 4 (1 for myself, my mother and my 2 bridesmaids) this summer for my September wedding, so thanks for the tip on the bobbles.

 
Good luck! That's a whole lot of work!

Thanks! I've knit up a practise shawl to familiarize myself with the pattern. I'm knitting this shawl from IK:

So far it has taken a little over a week, knitting only in the evenings and I am almost done. The bobble tip is going to make it go a lot faster. I'll be knitting 2 in Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud Sand (mom and bridesmaid who hates pink) and 2 in Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud Peppermint 23499 (me and matron of honour who loves pink). I'll post pics when I am done.
