11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / dying finished garments? on: April 18, 2006 01:42:35 PM
Has anybody here tried dying garments with kool-aid (or with anything else)?  How did it come out- more saturated, less saturated, blotchy?  I have a whole bunch of white superwash sock yarn, and I don't want white socks- but I also am kind of itching to start knitting socks, and I probably won't have a chance to buy kool-aid/dye the yarn for a while.  I'd love any feedback about whether this is a good idea or a bad one.

Thanks in advance!
12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / one-sided paper book ideas? on: December 20, 2005 11:27:10 AM
So, here's the deal.  I have all this scrap paper (paper that has been printed on one side only), and being conservation-minded, I'd like to turn it into notebooks for next semester.  I've done this with japanese stab binding before, but I'm looking for alternate binding methods (the japanese stab method is good because you don't have to fold the pages, so the blank sides of the paper all face in the same direction, but I find it to be really stiff, so the book doesn't stay open or lay flat well).  If you have any suggestions about adapting the stab binding so the book stays open, that would als be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / 350 yards of mohair??? on: December 10, 2005 06:47:47 PM
So, I have about 350 yards of mohair yarn (I think it's fingering weight) in a lovely dark brown color.  Any ideas about what I could do with it (other than an shawl)?  So far the only thing I've thought of is a mobius scarf or stole.
Thanks!
