7561  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: My CuppyCakes! on: June 27, 2007 05:27:47 AM
Excellent! After seeing a knit version posted recently, I was going to try to figure out a crochet pattern, so now I know it can be done! I could probably figure it all out from your pics, except for the part where the pink top joins the brown bottom.

About how big would you say each cupcake is? And how long did each one take?

Thanks for sharing!
7562  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Re: YARN DYEING 101 - KOOL AID on: June 26, 2007 08:16:16 AM
Hmmmm...picking out a project first is a good idea. Good thinking Miss_Vicki and Dulcinea! Would it be awful if I picked out a project that I know I would love? Wink But then I'd be crushed if she made it and gave it to someone else  Cheesy

My only choices for buying the yarn are AC Moore and Michael's, at this point. Maybe I'll have to do a bit of poking around in the store, and the book, to see what I can match up.

I should be okay with the gauge, as long as it's listed and I don't have to do any knitting!

Thanks again for your help- I'm sure I'll be back for more!

I want to dye some yarn for my sister-in-law's birthday. I got her a copy of One Skein. I don't know much about yarn, so about how much (in grams, I guess) is a typical skein...or should I think in terms of yards? I want to make sure that she has enough yarn to complete a project.

WOW! I love this little box! I keep scrolling back to look at it. I love the bronze sparkly clay and the funky design of the box overall. The impressions of the swirls is a fantastic touch (for some reason, I am very partial to swirly designs like the one you used), and the twisted rope of black sets everything off nicely.

Very, very, very nice!

You know, a second pocket or pouch just for receipts might not be a bad idea (particularly a clear one)--just to make it really clear that you're on the up-and-up, and so you can produce the receipts really quickly if someone asks.  Or making a mesh or clear vinyl tote-style bag for non-grocery shopping--maybe based on the round-handled plastic shopping bags they use in clothing stores.

This is a good idea! Someone above mentioned using the "make your own fabric from plastic bags" tutorial- I wonder if it would work as well with clear bags? I was planning to make a pouch to keep my bags in,  so maybe I could clip a clear "receipt pouch" to that. I don't know if I have any clear bags, though...Definitely worth looking into...

Here's the pic of my Book Purse Kit from balletfreak! She sent along a book, funky fabric and a snazzy black ribbon. It also came with a lovely card, and a great little booklet of hand-written and drawn instructions. As soon as I finish reading the book Wink , I'll be making the purse!

Thanks, balletfreak! I love it!

I bought some reusable bags from the chain grocery store that I usually shop at and for the first month that I used them, they still looked pretty new. The cashiers always wanted to ring them up as a new purchase!

I've found that I need to make an effort to get them to put stuff in my bags. If I just put them on the belt, the cashier pushes them aside and the bagger ignores them. Usually not a problem, but if I'm not paying attention, half my order is already bagged in plastic. Once, when this happened, I asked the bagger to put my items in my own bags- she took the items she had already bagged, plastic bag and all, and stuffed them into the bags.

*sigh* Some people just don't get it...

7570  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / Re: 6/9/07 - Craftster got a face lift! on: June 23, 2007 11:14:16 AM
I couldn't figure out why I was still seeing the dots...and then I dusted off the screen...

And, now that I've had a chance to cruise the site more, I love it even more (although I still wish I could organize my bookmarks better Wink )!

I really like how clean the home page is, and the new graphic icons are great too! I haven't encountered any glitches that I didn't already have (but I think those are just computer issues, not site issues- sometimes when I hit back to go to "New Replies to Your Posts" it either gets rid of all of the posts, or shows only one, or something like that. When I hit refresh, it's all good).

So thanks again for making Craftster such a fun place to visit!
