211  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: iPod Cozies on: July 23, 2004 08:20:07 AM
I just bought an ipod (since the prices dropped 50 bucks AND amazon.com was giving a $50 gift certificate!).  I was wondering...  People keep saying how easily the ipods scratch... has anyone had a problem with the wool cozies scratching?  I know it would kill a pair of eyeglasses!

I was thinking it would be really neat to knit a ribbed arm band to the cozy, kinda like a sweater sleeve.  When I get the ipod, I'll work one up and post a picture!
212  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Craft The Vote! / legality issues on: July 19, 2004 07:39:48 AM
I just posted this under another thread....

I just trained to register people to vote (you HAVE to take a class in Delaware) and they told us it is illegal to give away items in exchange for registration.  You have to give it to anyone and everyone.   We are giving out condoms that say "stand up and be counted, Vote!" but we are giving them to everyone, people passing by and what not.

They (voting officials) even told us a story of little old ladies (they said in their 80's or something!) giving away baked goods for registering and they got in trouble!  not serious trouble, but still... It just takes one complaint to void all those registraints!

So please check your state laws! Smiley
213  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Craft The Vote! / Can't give away things for voting/registering on: July 19, 2004 07:31:32 AM
I just trained to do voter registration (in some states, you have to take a class).  It is illegal to give something away in exchange for registering to vote (in delaware at least).  You CAN however, give a button to anyone who asks and you must make it clear that they are free to everyone.

I trained through Planned Parenthood and we are giving out condoms that say "stand up and be counted, Vote!"  But we are just handing them out in general, at the registration tables and also in a bar, although we hope that people will decide to register.

My name is Carolyn and one of my 4 sisters is named Karen.  When my neice was learning to talk, she thought we had the same name and called us both "haykyn" (pronounced "hay" + "kin" - I think we made it end in yn to be closer to Carolyn, but who really knows?). 

One day, she looked at me, looked at my sister... said "1 haykyn, 1 haykyn.... 2 HAYKYN'S!"   This has now become my online personna.  Smiley

I was always dying for a nickname growing up anyway, so it works.  Smiley

216  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: tulips A-line skirt and fall tree A-line skirt on: July 07, 2004 09:56:22 AM
I made them myself. I took left over fabric and cut them into shapes.  Then I ironed on double sided fusible web to the back of the cut out shapes.  Then ironed THAT to the skirt.  I finished with a small, tight zig zag stitch around all the edges to add a finished look and to make sure the shapes stay on after a few washings and to keep the edges from unraveling.
217  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / tulips A-line skirt and fall tree A-line skirt on: July 07, 2004 06:14:51 AM
Hi!  This is my first post.  I just wanted to share some applique's I've been doing.  I think they came out well.  The tree was inspired by a friends talk of a tattoo and all the fall catalogues that have started arriving (with my favorite fetish, sweaters)!

The skirt is a vintage Simplicity A-line pattern from the seventies.  For the applique, I iron double sided fusible on the cut out shapes.  Then, I iron that fabric to the skirt and then go over it with my smallest zigzag stitch twice.  It doesn't take too long.  I think the tree took me an hour and a half.  The circles by the tulips are shell buttons and the stems are ric rac.
