This is a terrific idea. I was cutting down old bottles to make candle holders and one of my friends brought me a huge bag of bottles after gathered all of the bottles I needed. I didn't have the heart to throw them out so I might use them to do this project.
12  UNITED STATES / Kentucky / Lexington Knit in Public Day Event on: June 03, 2006 04:35:25 PM
For all of you in or around Lexington, next Saturday (June 11) the Lexington snb is going to have a Knit in Public Day Event. We have a booth at the Artists' Market in Phoenix Park (in front of the downtown library) and we will be having the event at the booth from 9am-3pm so drop by any time. We will also be offering free knitting lessons for anyone interested. If you come, please bring a chair or a cushion to sit on and your knitting supplies. There will be extra yarn and needles for the new knitters.
13  UNITED STATES / Kentucky / Lexington Artists' Market on: March 24, 2006 01:57:22 PM
Every Saturday from June to August there is an artist market in Phoenix Park, around the corner from the Farmer's market. The cost for a booth is $25/week or $125 for the entire summer. The Lexington snb is going to have a booth, but it would be great to see other craftsters.

This is truely amazing. I love the pinks and greens together, so vivid. Also, those round chairs are fabulous.
15  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Best vegan cookbook? on: March 13, 2006 12:39:21 PM
Vegan Planet by Robin Robertson might be just what you need. It is huge, the largest vegan cookbook that I've seen, and it contains almost everything you will need. If I could only have one cookbook, that would be the one, but I think it is alway better to have a nice variety. Every chef has something to offer and I consult every cookbook I have for a different things. As you become comfortable with vegan cooking you might want to add some non-vegan cookbooks for reference, you'd be surprised at the things you can veganize.

Other Cookbooks I really like..
La Dolce Veagn by Sarah Kramer
New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook by Louise Haglar and Dorothy Bates
Vegan World Fushion Cuisine by the chefs of the Blossoming Lotus
16  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: what is a fair price to charge for basic knitting lessons? on: August 12, 2005 04:23:00 AM
$10/hour for group classes is what my LYS charges. I have found that it is easier to teach knitting in small groups because the students start to teach each other. Maybe you could get everyone together for a group lesson at a discounted rate.
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How slow can you go? on: August 12, 2005 04:19:27 AM
I think that it's just the summer. My knitting always picks up in the fall when it's cooler and there are more people at the snb. I only do little projects during the summer to keeep myself busy.

How'd you like the book?  What all did it address?

I got Getting Things Done because I was becoming overwhelmed by all of my projects at work. A co-worker recommended the book and it was really helpful, I am more organized and I use my time more effectively. Basically what the book teaches you is how to do things in the most efficient way and how to get things out of your head and into an organization system so that you aren't constantly stressing over them. The system works, but it takes a chunk of time to set it up which can seem daunting when you have 100 other things to do. Also, many of the methods were overkill for what I needed so I made adaptations. The book has kind of a cult following so if you search on google you should find tons of stuff, 43 folders was the site I found most useful.
19  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: hand-spun swap.. interested?? on: May 08, 2005 01:17:34 PM
I actually don't have a lot of experience with large swaps, the only one that I've ever done was one were we all mailed our stuff to one person and she sent packages back to us which is why I suggested it that way. If that way doesn't work I am up for mailing a bunch of little packages, whatever people want to do.
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How do you organize all of your project ideas? on: May 08, 2005 08:34:48 AM
I just finished reading Getting Things Done by David Allen which forced me to think about my personal organization systems. The most intersting thing to come out of this is my new system for organizing past, present, and future projects and project ideas. My old method of marking projects for later was to bookmark the page on my computer, this resulted in a ton of bookmarks that we really unorganized and often expired when I got around to looking back at them. Now I import pictures into iPhoto and separate them into albums (i.e. intarsia graphs, decorating ideas, project ideas, etc.). The when I am motivated to work on a certain kind of project I can go to that album for inspiration. Another thing I did was set up a "how-to" folder on my computer where I keep patterns and tutorials of things that I want to do later. I print all of these to pfd from the web so I don't have to worry about compatibility issues later.

I was wondering if anyone else has a similar system or a different system that they would like to share.
