11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can someone help me understand directions? on: October 03, 2008 08:27:57 PM
OK I am knitting the Chemo Earflap Hat

I am to here:
Begin with a purl row, stockinette stitch straight for 8 (9.5,10.5,12)cm. End with a purl row. For the toddler size hat you will need to increase 1st at each end of the last row (=90st). For the child size hat you will need to decrease 1st at each end of the last row (=96st)

Why would I need to increase at the top of the hat? Is it just to get a good number to work with?
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Ear Flap hat with WW instead of DK? Or know a pattern on: September 25, 2008 07:57:40 AM
Ok I found This pattern that I really like BUT I just want to destash some and use my WW yarn, pattern calls for DK.  Think if I made the size smaller than what I need?? How would one go about this

OR

Does anyone know of a simple toddler ear flap hat pattern that takes WW yarn?? I think I have seen every size/yarn combo except what I need.
13  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / What can I use for arteries?? on: September 22, 2008 08:43:59 AM
Hmmm not quite sure what they are really, but the red hangy thing if you were to say pluck someones eyeball out?  They red hangy arteries or muscle...

Anyway I have some eyeballs to hang from my tree but I decided they were not *quite* nasty enough so I need to attach something to the backs for the red stuff.  Preferably not yarn as they doesn't look as real as I want plus with rain and probably snow before then... they'll just get nasty.

Any suggestion? 
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Am I insane/ can this be done by a newbie?? on: September 16, 2008 10:06:07 AM
OK I know how to sew... I have done a *few* projects that were fairly mediocre (PJ pants, a few McCalls Sew Easy tops...) on the skill scale. Even so, I have decided on my Halloween costume and I found 2 patterns that I like to suit my needs

Or:

http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5444.htm??tab=costumes&page=2

How hard exactly are these? Which would be better to give a whirl on?  Or... should I just look at buying a cheesy one at the costume shop
15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / What can I do with closet doors?? on: September 08, 2008 05:57:25 PM
I have taken all the closet doors off in my house.  I offered them up on Reuseit but no takers.  I hate to toss them but I can NOT keep them much longer.  They are the cheap hollow doors, some are about 3 ft long and I have some bi-folds too...
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting in 1870's on: May 24, 2008 07:23:40 AM
Anyone know where I can find information/pattens (most willing to buy them!) from the 1870's?  I am starting at a historical museum and would like to knit while I am there.  I know they will have information for me when I start... but I am inpatient.   Grin
17  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pillowcase dress on: May 14, 2008 11:34:19 AM
Not very original I know... but who doesn't love them???  My daughter has requested several of them... so off we go to the thrift store to find some more!

and ummm ignore the mess (kid and house!  Grin  )






18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Frecycle ottoman fug - to...well something better at least on: January 08, 2008 12:24:57 PM
My first attempt at reupholstering anything so well it looks like a first attempt.  But I'd take that over what it WAS.

What I started with:


Midway though rippin' that baby apart:


End results: (please ignore ugly matching chair I got with the ottoman, I have plans for that baby!... but man is it comfortable!!!Oh and the obvious need for a vacuum  Shocked )


I plan to replace the legs with something a bit nicer but for the moment I painted them to match (and I am somewhat impressed seeing as how I can't paint a sick person correctly) plus bonus shot of my dogs head Roll Eyes
19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Taggie blanket (does that go here?) on: December 09, 2007 07:27:36 PM
It is simple but I just learned how to sew (specifically for this Christmas to handmake my kids' presents) so I made my baby a taggie style blanket.  Pardon the pictures and they are not the BEST show off ones (husband took it) but its what I have and I want to brag  Grin Oh and there are more tags then it looks like in the picture... they just all seem to blend.
20  COOKING / Dessert / What to make with leftover cake? on: December 05, 2007 08:28:32 AM
Ok well not really leftover  Embarrassed... I was making cupcakes with my daughter but they came out WAY to crumbly (over mixing??) to use as cupcakes.  I couldn't waste the cake mix! (it was a double batch even) so I went ahead and baked it up.  Now what can I make from this?!?! There has to be something!!
