I prefer circs for carrying my stuff around, so what cord length would be best for doing this?

I was looking around and found some booklet thinggie tucked in with my circs..
Acording to AERO this should be knit on smaller than 16".. seen as there are 4,5 stitches per inch and there are 66 stitches in total that would mean the best length is 14.67" circs.
I think 16" would work fine, maybe give you a bit more space

OR you could just work with one long circ.. there's a how to floating around somewhere..

I can't wait to make this myself but I can't find the right color green anywhere  Angry

I remember vaguely that keeping your head warm makes hair grow faster.
BUT take in to mind hair will also fall out quicker also.

There is no miracle cure to a short hair cut. I have to wait for my hair to grow also.. It's sad but time is the only thing that will make your hair grow, vitamins, minerals and whatever suplement wont help grow it but will help it grow somewhat stronger perhaps.

Viri, I'm not sure about massaging your scalp. It could help blood circulation but it might also over stimulate the hair folicles and just give you greasy hair.. but maybe it just feels nice and that makes it worth it Smiley

And besides, if there were a miracle hair growth thinggy.. don't you think everyone would know about it?  Roll Eyes

My final suggestion I guess is this:

People say that you can will thing to happen, like women willed their boobs to grow and they supposedly did. Maybe in this dire situation we could will out hair to grow by thinking about it? Or is this just my I just got out of bed head talking nonsense??? Wink

I'm pretty anal with keeping notes/patterns.

I bookmark everything, each in their own folder (knitting, crochet, sewing, jewlery, soap, embroidery and general crafts) plus name them so I know what they are. I also bookmark the blog if I got a pattern from it also in a nice folder named Blogs.

If i want to make something I print out the page and put it in a folder that is also tabbed in the same way.

Then when I start to make it the page gets put into a ring binder and gets a nice piece of note paper added to it.. binder is also tabbed for my pleasure..  Undecided I love organizing paper and files.

If there is a pdf available I save it in my wonderfully organized crafts folder..

and magazines.. I tab those with post-its in different colors.. coordinating with the type of craft. If I want to make the pattern I photo copy it and it gets added to the binder.

I'll stop before I scare myself with the ammount of time I put into storing things instead of making them! I don't get how this can be so organized but my room looks like a dump site!

The only thing i suck in is getting pictures of my finished projects.. or knowing what to use the yarn I have for!!

Well I finished last week but some things came up and I didn't get to post.

Anyway, my mom claimed it for herself and I'm happy she wanted it because the guy and I sorta kinda broke up for some reason unknown to me yet. I'll bribe him with the letters he sent me promising he would never leave me later, but first, Pictures!!



I did 20 straight rows on 5mm needles, with the wonderfully cheap yarn <3 It's a bit over 2 meters long!!! It only took just over 3 balls (I guess that's 3 and 1/4) so it cost me 6 euro's  Shocked I swear I thought I'd need tons more balls for this but I'm bad at making an estimate. The colors in the back of the pic are the closest I think to the real thing

Here's my mom wearing it (modeling it.. she had to do a whole pose thing.. 25 pictures and this is the only one she kinda likes)

So I've finished the first ball of SWTC bamboo yarn for my clapotis... does anyone have any recommendations for the best way to join the yarn for the next ball?

I joined my yarn by threading the new yarn through the old one, if you thread it through far enough it doesn't come undone and you just pull/tear the ends so they don't stick out so much (I can't find the parts back where i joined at all!!!)

it was ok. quite a lot of yarn/book stalls and more people than I expected and to be honest more older women than younger ones, with the whole stitch n bitch thing going I had expected mostly younger people!

but hey! It's not a bad thing at all.

Anyway, I had fun but I hope if they do it again there will be more things going on, and more room to get to see the stuff for sale!!!

How long did you guys make your clapotis btw? (or how long are you going to make it?)

Mine at the moment is 65 inches but it doesn't wrap nicely yet.. so I guess I'm making it a bit longer..
