1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Blizzard/snowstorm coloured contacts costume question? on: October 01, 2008 05:51:36 PM
This year, I want to be a blizzard.  (a snowstorm, not an icecream treat.)  I'm still not entirely sure how I'm going to do it, but I've decided there will be lots of makeup, spray in hair colour (I'm a brunette... NOT going platinum...), lots of flowy clothing, and hopefully light blue coloured contacts.  I've heard that the Crazy Lens ones are the best/cheapest, but has anyone had any experiences either way with them?  Also, where did you get them?  I've been looking online, and everything is either in pounds (I'm in Canada and would liek minimal shipping) or listed on pretty sketchy looking websites.

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / doggy legwarmers? on: November 24, 2006 08:05:17 PM
So, it's so cold right now, my friend's dog gets leg cramps when he goes outside.  I could make him a doggy sweater to help with the heat loss thing, but some sort of doggy legwarmers would probably address the problem a little more directly.

Any thoughts?
I'm thinking if I basically make tubes, they can be slipped on over his legs... it'll probably need to be a bit stretchy, so I might knit them instead, or make them lace up?

not sure...
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / What do YOU look for in a yarn? on: November 04, 2006 02:20:13 PM
Hi guys.  Looooonnnng time lurker (uh, like two years) first time poster.

SO.  Here's some stuff about me:  I'm currently in New Zealand doing some post-graduation travelling - I'm due to return to smalltown Alberta (Canada) in a month, but have fallen head over heels in love with the AMAZING wools here that I can't seem to find anywhere at home.

AND.  I have decided, that perhaps I should open a yarn shop - however, I must do some relatively intense market research first, to make sure it would survive.  (My hometown has a Walmart for craft stuff and that's about it.  The nearest specialty shop or Micheal's is just over an hour away.  But a 'need' doesn't mean it will be successful...)

SO!  If any of you are interested in helping a lady out by answering a few craft-purchasing related questions, please PM me!  (How often you buy wool? how much, on average, you might spend per purchase? Where do you shop for wool: specialty stores, craft stores, or walmart type stores?  How large is your city?)

ANYHOW, onto the other things (for stock decisions, etc.):

What are your favorite yarns?
What do you look for in new yarns?  Is price or quality more of a factor?
Do you have a favorite brand?

thanks everyone!
