Oh my goodness! I can't believe all of the stuff that has been posted since I looked last night! Such awesomeness- now, I'm even more excited!

That pendant reminds me of butterflies, too! I love it!

And, those stitch markers are really neat. I love how bold they are.

And thanks to zombiekilla for organizing (and panda for taking up the reins when needed!). This swap was really fun and I'm inspired to try out some new shrinkie techniques!

I'm with you folks on the Kindle/electronic book thing. It's a future I dread, but one that may be unavoidable. I love curling up with a book, smelling the old book smell, and being able to flip back to re-read something I missed. I can appreciate the books=paper=trees but there is just something so special about books for me that I almost don't care! I buy books because I like to have them on hand. I tend to buy a lot of reference books. It cracks me up when libraries have field guides- you're not allowed to check out reference books, so how can you use it as a field guide??

I will read library books, but it grosses me out when hair falls out of it, or there is some crusty goo on the pages...

And, I love young adult literature. I bought almost all of the books for my bookshelf in my classroom and I read every book I bought before I put it on the shelf. That way, I could recommend the books to certain kids, or discuss it with them, if they wanted. But, it used to break my heart when they treated them badly!! I know a few ended up on the floor/at the bottom of a locker and then in the trash. Even though they were clearly labeled... sigh...

So, I almost never loan out my books...

Anybody read The Satanic Verses by Salaman (sp?) Rushdie? I couldn't get through the first chapter, the writing style was sooo hard for me.

I have it...and I've had it since it came out...and I still haven't read it...

Both of those owls are adorable!! Love the little night owl...

Yay! Thanks for the recipe! And, I also laughed out loud at Kosher hot dogs being wrapped in bacon and stuffed with cheese.
7377  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Babette's blanket from IK Crochet 2006? on: June 22, 2008 06:27:03 PM
yep, the ch3 are there. I even thought it was the ch3 the problem, that I somehow did the chains too big and they lifted everything up, but tried using a ch2 instead and the same problem was there

I have a closeup, please excuse the bad light  Embarrassed

now I am thinking I may be doing something back when waving in the changes of colors, because I do it as I go, but I can't think what it may be.

oh! and I'm not a beginner, but neither an expert! nobody I know here crochets, so I learn from errors and from the internet...  Tongue

Hmmm...I'm not an expert either, but I've progressed beyond beginner, too Wink

It does seem like the problem is happening when you do your color change. How do you change colors? I know you're supposed to do it before you finish the last stitch of the previous color, but I don't know if it is the same when working in rounds...

Since all of us here are "friends of craftster"s I would just like to ask why some people don't fill out their fav projects made by them and by other people. There are a lot of people with like 5 million posts *exaggerating* and so they obviously spend tons of time on here and are addicted like me  Wink So why not add some things to your fav list. I mean if you are browsing and see something you like all you do is click the camera next to it and select that it is either something you made or something someone else made. And they are great ways to find something you like quick if you want to refer back to it or show someone. Or if you are in a swap and other people joining are trying to see what their potential partners have made for them to quickly see at least 12 things you've made that you are proud of.

It's waaaay too hard for me to pick 12 things that others have made (I wish I could make my bookmarks public!). I never thought about picking out 12 things I've made...

I love the hand-carved stamps (in fact, the penguin and robot original posts are bookmarked!)!  I also love the knit dishcloths. They are so much better than a sponge! And, I crochet, but if I win that handspun yarn, it's going to my knitter SIL, along with a skein of hand-dyed wool (once I get around to figuring that out) and a copy of the book One Skein. And, if I'm lucky, maybe she'll knit something for me out of it Wink

Ha! Based on your work that I've seen, dragonslair, I wouldn't worry about that! You make great stuff!

Hunter S. Thompson wrote Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. He used a lot of psychedelic drugs, too! Johnny Depp played him in the movie of the same name. To be honest, I tried to watch it and couldn't get through it. I haven't read anything by him, either. But he certainly was a distinctive character...
