Crafting away on the big project.  I have a list of 8-9 things I *want* to make, but probably will not make all of them.  Tomorrow morning, after work, and doing an equipment check at work, I will be going to one of my favourite shopping haunts to pick up some supplies.  Because I will likely be sleep deprived and highly open to suggestion and impulse buying, some extras may also fly into my bag too.

OK, so I am thjinking it is probably the patterned metal cut as a rectangle with tapering ends.  Then a piece of metal to frame, cut in the same shape, slightly larger.  Smooth/file sharp edges.  Fold long edges over of the larger piece, to enfold the patterned piece, then fold the folded edges in the middle another 45 degrees approximately, and buff?  If the edges of the large piece are folded closely enough, it should encase the patterned piece securely, otherwise an adhesive could be used (or rivets, or soldering, whatever?).  Wrap around form to make the curve for the wrist, and finish/shine/buff?

Don't they coat the insides of drink cans with some kind of plasticky coating?

3975  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Addi Click interchangeable needle set - opinions? on: August 02, 2010 02:14:40 PM
That was my concern - that the interchangeables would not be as nice!  YAY, good to hear that they are.

I only learned to knit on circulars a bit over a year ago, but I am so much so a convert - I love it!  With learning the magic loop method, I have found myself converting non-circular patterns to circular whenever possible to avoid sewing seams (which I LOATHE). 

I used to use bamboo needles, but I found that one brand had a cord that was too stiff, and after trying the regular Addi Turbo circulars, then going back to my bamboo because of size for a project, I found that the bamboo felt like it was sticking too much.  The smoothness of the Addi felt less fatiguing and so slick.

It also looks like I could buy the laceweight tips individually too, if I need smaller sizes than what is in the kit.

Woohoo!  Happy Birthday to me!

Usually I get myself something special for my birthday and this year I was thinking of treating myself to this set and was wondering if anyone has it or has tried it and what your opinions are.  I have tried the addi turbo circulars and love them, but the set with the interchangeable cords sound like they have more potential.

I was thinking thin tapered rectangles, in graduated sizes, with side links, to make a collar type necklace would be neat, of one image separated.

I was thinking aluminum also for the $$$ factor, while we are experimenting, and probably adhesives would not be needed if it was a tight enough frame, but I thought it would be neat also to put a layer of resin or something similar over top for that kind of enameled look to and to protect from scratches, since some of those decorated cans can have the paint scratched off.
