21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Terrified to cut. Felted or Not Quite? on: February 25, 2007 04:30:24 PM

Ive only just started felting knitted wool, so I'm no expert but as you can still see through it I wouldn't say It was felted enough.

I actually put some knitted pieces in the in the machine last night one or two didn't come out as I hoped but the rest I was so pleased with.

Ive found to get a really good thick felt with a mohair mix its worked well putting it on a 40 degree wash twice.

I'm still amazed how it comes out and by how much it shrinks.

Good luck with your ipod cover  Smiley

I have no criticism what so ever thats just so cute!

I want one (and I'm 30 Grin)
Unfortunately I have the biggest hair ever and I don't suit hats so I might make one for my daughter instead.

What a great shrine!

My dad calls me his own Freida Kahlo (I don't look like her, I certainly don't have the eyebrows!) but I do love to wear bright things and often  wear flowers in my hair.

I wanted to reply because you may already know but just incase you didn't there was a vogue Knit 1 edition summer 2006. It was called the Art edition and featured Fredia Kahlo inspired knits and other bits  Smiley and bobs.

Heres a link http://www.dreamweaveryarns.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=95&products_id=1180
26  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Crafting and Your Mental Health! I Need Your Input! Edited to Add Another Q on: February 21, 2007 06:10:10 PM

I'm not sure if me doing this will be any good as I have OCD so that will make some of my answers strange but here goes .... Smiley

How do you feel when you're crafting?
Sometimes I feel blissfully happy as I love making things (sometimes I just sit back and enjoy the moment).Unfortunately the OCD creeps in though and I can actually feel quite anxious and also a little upset because I worry I'm going to contaminate whatever I'm making.

Why do you craft?
I craft because Its just who I am (sorry that sounds uppity, cant think of how else to explain it).Since I was little Ive made things.(My mum regularly found me in a pile of paper and bits. At first she would be cross about the mess but then she would be made up when I showed her my latest creation) I also got told off for using her scissors and not putting them back!
I couldn't imagine not making things. I often wonder what people who don't craft do with their spare time.  Grin

Who do you craft for?
I craft for me mostly. I would like to craft for others but thats where my fear of contamination comes into play again. Friends have said they like what I do and should sell stuff but I'm too afraid I may put germs on things (not that I have germs its a whole weird brain thing )

How many hours a week do you average crafting?
As many as I can. Again though this depends on the OCD. When I'm having a really bad phase I cant do any,Ive gone nearly 7 months before now without being able to touch a thing. Lately its been a bit better and Ive been going up to my little studio the last few nights and doing anywhere from 2-4 hours knitting whilst watching my Buffy dvds (my idea of heaven).

I actually feel quite nervous about posting this. Undecided

Here's mine it's on my lower back (yes it is rather hairy for a girl  Embarrassed)

Don't feel bad, I'm a girl and I'm covered in hair, especially on my back and shoulders.  Roll Eyes

def. no shame in it I'm in the same boat, and your tat is super cute LilKitty
Thankyou Meg and Kurtzie

Glad to hear its not just me... Grin

I didn't want something someone else had so I actually designed it myself. It took many doodles but this was the final result... theres a slight mistake but I still love it! Smiley
