1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A Victorian Shoulderette and a Wisp on: July 04, 2007 05:15:05 AM

Two FO's in two days. 

The first one is Sivia Harding's Victorian Shoulderette, which I really like, and have already worn out once.  Knit out No No Kitty Yarns Prime Alpaca DK in 'WipeOut' on size 6US needles.

The second one is Cheryl Niamath's Wisp; I can't put into words how much I love this piece.  Knit out of overdyed Habu Textiles Silk/Mohair Kusa on size 7US needles.

They're both simple knits, but I think the results were worth the little bit of boredom involved.

5  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / blank greeting cards: online shop? on: April 06, 2007 11:34:54 PM
I've been looking for an online store here in Oz, that sells blank greeting cards that I can then print images on.  I'm looking for something along the lines of the Strathmore Blank Card & Envelope packages.  I just ordered some from Dick Blick in the States, and got hijacked on the shipping costs, so I was hoping that someone would know of an Aussie online store that sells something similar.  I've done a few searches, but they haven't turned up anything usefull.

Thank you for any help you can give.

I don't know if this is still relevent or not. 

I live in Alice Springs, also a Yank; my hubby brought us here back in September of last year.  If you're still looking for info, please feel free to send me your questions.

Sorry it took me so long to see this; I haven't been on this board in a while.

Tattersalls, I think that's the correct spelling.  It's a magazine/news shop here in Alice Springs, but I think they're widespread.  They're usually in malls and shopping areas.

If you head over to Tattertails(sp?) Newstand, they're selling little shrinky dink kits at the cash wrap.  Complete with markers.

Wow.  That layout is stunning.  Very cool blog you have there wildgarden. 

I have a couple questions for you.  Did you ever pick up the Handmade in Melborn book?  If so, what did you think of it?  I haven't had a chance to flip through it yet (books are slow to make their way to Alice).

Thanks in advance,

That's true of most movies made from books. My friend couldn't make it past the first chapter of Eragon, said he couldn't get into it, but I think I'm going to borrow it and see if I fair better.

Very cute. Gonna see Eragon? I don't know how I feel about that movie. It doesn't look like it's going to be great.
The books will always be better. Wink
Great work on the dragon., I havethis pattern printed out and waiting to try. You're is the cutest dragon I"ve seen amde with it so far! I love the wings!
The first two chapters are a bit slow. But once you get into it it's really worth it. Some people just are impatient. Wink

Funny thing, my hubby got his copy of Eragon from his cousin who never made it past the first chapter.  I agree that once you get past the first chapters, it's hard to put down.  I can't wait for the third one to come out.

I actually have pretty high hopes for the movie.  It's not done in Hollywood, where IMO they try to chop up a good book and end up with a not so great movie.  I also just think that the books will translate well to screen if the director dosen't try to put too much of himself into them.  Which seems to be the case of bad book to film transitions.
