14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: In need of Zen-themed wedding ideas! on: December 24, 2007 08:37:56 PM
incidentally, it's against chinese superstition to write a wedding invitation in black and white because it it severe bad luck (and only used for deaths) if that's any interest to you. (and sorry if you all ready knew that).
it sounds like a really beautiful and elegant idea for a wedding.
i don't really know anything about zen, but i say keep things simple.  maybe not a lot of busy patterns, but solid colors and geometric shapes.  does that make any sense?
maybe you could use cherry blossoms/flowers as part of the theme?
like this:

that's what i mean by geometric.  it's clean and elegant.
and this website came up in google:

16  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / i lost my pattern! on: December 21, 2007 05:32:15 PM
does anyone have a copy of the "modern granny" afghan?
i think it was on a DuPont acrylic yarn wrapper, if not DuPont, then some sort of acrylic yarn.
the original pattern called for brown, red, dark yellow, and fisherman.
you made 24 squares on a K hook and it finished at 40'x60'.
it was advertised as "written in plain english" rather than crochet abbreviations.
that's just about as much as i remember.
the afghan was pictured draped over a chair and the colors were mostly yellowish and there was a lamp in the background.

i'm trying to get it made for my best friend in time for christmas, but i left the pattern at my friend's house last night.
thanks for anything!
17  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / another best friend ash/pikachu duo ETA: more pictures! on: November 01, 2007 10:46:45 PM
this idea started off with me joking about what my friend and i could be, but he wanted to do it, so we did.



my costume (Ash):
-shoes, bought a long time ago
-jeans, "borrowed" (indefinitely) from one of my best friends
-tshirt, borrowed from one of my residents
-shirt, reconned from two shirts
-hat, reconned with extra white fabric from one of my shirts with the symbol (that you can't see) sharpied on
-gloves, self-crocheted

his costume  (Pikachu):
-shoes (not really part of it) his own
-pants, his own (pikachu was standing on a stump)
-pikachu feet, (that you can't see) he cut out, drew on toes, and sewed on himself (old, yellow, thrifted sheet)
-pikachu tail, we both made with cardboard, the old, yellow, thrifted sheet, thrifted brown material, a brown sharpie, and a stapler (it was sfety pinned to his pants and in two places to his hoodie)
-pikachu ears, we both made those out of the old, yellow, thrifted sheet, the reverse side of the thrifted brown fabric, and stuffed with polyfil
-pikachu beanie, i crocheted and appliquéd crocheted eyes and nose
-hoodie, american apparel hoodie i bought for him and appliquéd stripes        on with the brown thrifted fabric
-tshirt, extra blank shirt i had for stenciling

it went over really well, except some of my friends (who didn't know pokemon or saw me without pikachu) thought i was a truck driver or homeless person.
he painted on his red cheeks with costume make up and i did the "lightning bolts" on my cheeks with eyeliner (these you also can't see).
i wish i had better pictures of us.
i have a lot of pictures of his costume i haven't uploaded yet.

ETA:














i know he looks like he's being tortured, but he asked me to take pictures of him and posed himself.
18  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone cut their own hair? on: October 31, 2007 02:59:34 PM
i've cut my hair and my friend's hair for a couple years now.
i have basically straight  hair and i cut really haphazardly and do the back by feel.
i keep the scissors angled down when cutting (layers) and cut the edges with them pointing straight up so it's not  blunt.
start smaaaall first. no big cuts right off.

that was is this summer (i've been growing it out)
