1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Mesh Count Formula? on: February 21, 2007 12:06:44 PM
Is there some type of mesh count formula that relates to the resolution of your image? I am printing on 100% cotton t-shirts (with plastisol) so I know what the overall range I should be using but how can I know exactly what it should be?

In true addictive personality form I will go way overboard in purchasing what I need to start screen printing t-shirts.

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Am I a Smug Married???? (Wedding Portrait Dilemma) on: March 31, 2006 07:18:43 AM
Is it a smug married move to put up a picture of yourself from your wedding prominently displayed in your living room? I have 2 5x7 pics up on my living room wall (matted in a nice frame). 1 is of me and dh right after we were pronounced married and they other is of me standing alone. My family (including my husband) are totally ragging on me for putting up a picture of myself.

I'm latin...latin's put up 20x40 self portraits with the fuzzy haze glowing in the background as the subject stares into the sublime abyss (looking virginal I might add). I think my choice of photos & placement is not a cheesy move.

Any opinions?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitters Wanted in Fairl Isle, Scotland on: March 10, 2006 08:16:30 AM
I just came across this on NPR. Might be on interest for those wanting to get away.

All Things Considered -
The National Trust of Scotland is seeking tenants for two properties on Fair Isle, the most remote inhabited island of Scotland. Anne Sinclair, a resident and historian of Fair Isle (pop: 65), says someone with knitting or construction skills would have no trouble making a living there. The knitting cooperative, for example, has more orders than it can fill.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Spend on yarn vs. clothes on: February 20, 2006 07:03:54 PM
I will drop $100 on yarn for a project with out batting an eyelash...yet on any given day I am Old Navy/Thrift Store/Marshalls/Ross down. I am known (to myself) as the $5 tee queen. Even though I don't spend a ton of cash on clothes I still dress cute and 99% of my clothes are machine washable (thank u Old Navy for those not found in nature fabrics that even armageddon could not destroy or wrinkle for that matter). I just, for the most part, would never spend the same amount on one off the rack garment...ya know?

Anybody else out there like this or do I have a serious problem that only a step program could help me work through?

P.S. My husband says I sound like a crack addict when I want to spend extra cash on yarn "Honey, if I just buy this ----- I won't need anymore yarn for a LOOOONG time."
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sub for Blue Sky Alpacas Cotton on: February 19, 2006 05:39:14 AM
My brain is on the brink of exploding. I have been scouring the web for too long trying to find an acceptable cotton or cotton blend sub for the Blue Sky Alpacas dyed cotton. I want to knit Simply Red (ok simply red is band I mean Something Red check it out here http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/knitandtonic/) from Knit and Tonic and don't want to spend so much ($9 for 150 yd skein).

Please help before the men in white coats come to carry me away.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / 2 Socks at once & Magic Loop Method on: February 02, 2006 08:21:26 AM
What length circular should I be using if I want to knit 2 socks at once (I've never knit socks but I can already tell I suffer from SSS - second sock syndrome)?

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Short 70 yds for Clapotis on: January 30, 2006 02:24:05 PM
Okay...I am in the straight rows section and realized that my ADD kicked in bad and I ordered 1 ball less than I needed of SWT - Karoake in the 278 colorway for a full size clap. aaauuuggghhh. I have 2 options:

1. Buy the ONE extra ball of yarn I need and pay shipping - BOOO! Tongue (there are a couple of LYS in Miami but it's hard for me to get out...work full time and have 2yr old, need I say more?).

2. Shorten the clap. I have no idea how to calculate 70 yds of yarn relative to how many less repeats of the straight rows I should do. Make sense?


9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Whats the point of Sl1s @ the start of a row? on: January 11, 2006 05:17:34 PM
I am working on 2 different patterns that call for a Sl1 at the beginning of a row. One asks for the usual slip 1 (purlwise) and one calls for a slip 1 knitwise. (the 2 patterns are clapotis and ruffles from Scarfstyle respectively). What is the point of slipping the 1 stitch at the beginning of these rows? Just curious.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Angelica by Stephanie Japel on: January 10, 2006 05:28:51 PM
OMG, Why have I not been alerted sooner that this ultra beautiful pattern existed?! Doing an image search for the hot lava cardi I stumbled up on this beaut by Stephanie Japel on Hip Knits.  I did a search here in craftster and there hasn't been much chatting about it. See KAL setup on blogger and see the  porn:


go here and get the pattern:


P.S. there is a picture of it at glampyre - not sure how I missed it. For others that may have missed it...this post is for you.
