21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Your honest opinion about wedding decor on: August 04, 2006 12:06:52 PM
I think it could go either way, thrown together or cohesive. For my wedding - which is in 36 days - we are having basically 3 different centerpieces. We are actually having 6 different center pieces over 22 tables, but we are having 4 kinds of mini topiaries, vases filled with fruit, and then a more traditional floral arangement. I didn't want them to all be matching, but I didn't want too much going on. Besides making 22 different centerpieces is too much work.

There are all kinds of stabilizer, some is water dissolving, some breaks down with heat, some is kind of like paper that you just tear away, and some is sort of like a liquid that you spray on.

If your pressure is ok, you might need some stabilizer.
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Why is this so bad? on: July 13, 2006 11:13:17 AM
It is sad when people become isolated, no matter what the reason. What I am saying (not very clearly i guess) is that is one thing to enjoy being around cats and knitting all the time, or to enjoy being around your baby, or to enjoy working all the time and to choose that path and it is another thing to become a hermit because you were too busy knitting, being a mom or working to notice.

TheDishclothQueen: Wait! That's "crazy cat lady" criteria? Oops... xD I do that kinda stuff all the time saves money and you get something spiffy.

rhiandmoi:I'm guessing he thought I'd cut myself off and not know what to do, but I love being around people so I'd never do that, but whatever

I do not mean to be a downer, but these things happen to the most fun loving and people loving people, and that is what makes it sad. That is when people think about you, stitching away in your rocker and sigh "She used to be so outgoing and fun, such a shame that she is alone with all those cats." 

If it makes you happy, be however you want to be. But it is sad when a fun outgoing person becomes a crazy cat lady with no freinds.

The problem is if you become so absorbed in a solitary hobby that you fail to go out, meet people and socialize regularly. If you chose to be alone with cats knitting because that is what you prefer that is completely different from ending up like that because you have systematically isolated yourself from the outside world and even if you wanted to go out into the world again you wouldn't know how.

The booty is the easiest place to make pattern adjustments. Even knowing how to adjust a pattern in the neck, shoulders, armscye and bust (thank you 4H sewing)  I will still make the size that fits best in the bodice and adjust the booty. I am an anti-pear with narrow shoulders though. So there are always some shoulder adjustments.

It is a boxy dress with very little waist shaping, so if that is what you want, what I woud do is make the top from the waist mark up in a size 8 and from the waist mark down in a size 10. I would just blend the line gradually. That will take out a lot of the extra from the waist up and still leave you with plenty of ease in the hips to sit down.
If you want to preserve the work that you have done on this dress already, I would take in the side seams about half as much as you are pinching.

Here is one that is knit long-ways, I can't tell which direction the original was knit in.
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Share the Yarn Love on: June 02, 2006 10:59:18 AM
Last night I cast on for the Julsey Anthropologie Mini Cardi using knitpicks Panache and I am just loving this yarn. The stitches are very well defined, the yarn as a nice amount of give, it is fabulously soft and I just love it. I knit this before using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, and I think I like this yarn better. I definately like the price better. Anyone else in love with the yarn on their needles right now?
