1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What type of yarn is good for scarves, socks, etc? on: October 19, 2007 07:25:56 PM
I want to knit some scarves, socks, hats, etc. for a charity my church is giving to. I've already made a scarf (and a pretty nice one, I think), but it's super itchy. What type(s) of yarn is comfortable and good for these projects?

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Small, Colorless Room - What to do? on: August 03, 2007 01:24:19 PM
I have a smallish (maybe 12x12) room and all it has in it right now is a bed and craft supplies (all over the floor). It has carpet (which I HATE) and a low ceiling. What to do with it?! I have an OK closet as well.

I don't know what color to paint my walls. I want it to be a very sunny, bright (but not TOO bright) room since it's in the basement. I was thinking maybe a light springy green or blue, maybe even orange. =/ Help!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting Lingo? on: July 27, 2007 09:31:48 AM
Okay, I see all these different "acronyms" everywhere in patterns and online. What do they mean? For example, I've seen W&T, RS row, WS row, etc. Is there maybe a knitting "dictionary" as to what all these mean? Can someone help? Thanks in advance for your time!

4  UNITED STATES / Missouri / St.Charles? on: July 26, 2007 04:42:46 PM
Anyone in the St.Charles area? Sorry if this post is completely pointless or not allowed here. I just wanted to know if I'm all alone in St.Charles.
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gift for a Friend on: July 26, 2007 08:27:03 AM
My friend's birthday is August 8th (I think-somewhere around there) and I need some ideas for birthday presents for her. She is having a luau party (she sent these AWESOME message-in-a-bottle invitations in an actual bottle!) soon and would kind of like to get/make her something that would match the theme. Here is some info:

Occasion: Birthday
Relationship to me: Friend
Gender: Female
Age: Turning 14 I believe.
Likes: blue, stuffed animals (maybe not one this year since she got ALL stuffed animals last year), christian music, country, crafts (I guess), being outside playing
Dislikes: I don't really know.. I have to ask her about some of these things.
Hobbies: Reading, Singing, listening to music (country and christian mostly), making clothes for a stuffed bear she has (hand sewing), cutting pictures from magazines to tape on her wall (her room is the size of a closet-- literally)
Style: Modern, sporty (kind of), she doesn't really have a style. It's well, average.
Other: She has 3 dogs and 1 hamster and is fairly tall. She likes walkig (we walked around her block about 15 times in 90 degree weather!!), designing and drawing (I think), and just lots of things.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What Needle Type Works Best? on: July 19, 2007 08:11:24 PM
Okay, I am a beginner knitter and while I was knitting, it seemed my (aluminum) needles had somehow bent or curved. It made me questions whether I should get different needles or not, which brings me to my question, what needles work best? Wooden, Bamboo, Aluminum, Steel, what?
7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Tons of Stuff - Not So Many Ideas on: July 19, 2007 04:45:56 PM
Stated in the title, I have TONS of items I could use, but either no ideas or ideas, but no supplies to make the craft (like a glue gun, drill, kiln, etc. stuff like that). Well, here's my loot:

-Bottlecaps (2)
-Cardstock (2 packs)
-Tacky and Elmer's Glue (1 of each)
-Wine Bottle Corks (4 or 5 I think)
-Piece of Cardboard (2)
-Black Wire (1 roll)
-Masking Tape (1 roll)
-Duct Tape (1 roll)
-Magazines (5)
-Clothespins (5 I think)
-Puzzle Pieces (Numerous pieces)
-2-inch Yarn Pieces (LOTS)
-Extra Hemp (Not big enough for jewelry)
-Acrylic and Watercolor Paint (1 large "kit" of Watercolor and 6-7 bottles of Acrylic)
-Watercolor, Tracing, Sketch, Etc. Paper (1 pad of each)
-Scrapbooking Stickers (1 pack)

And I probably have tons more, but I can't remember all of it. Help?
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Sailor/Ship Swap? on: July 17, 2007 09:35:25 AM
How about a sailor or ship swap. It could even be piratey! This idea was inspired by the CUTEST/COOLEST anchor/sailor wallet ever, that I got from a previous swap. It got me thinking that now I need a cool purse to match. x] So, what do you guys think?
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / 10x12 Basement Room on: July 16, 2007 07:37:06 PM
I have a small 10x12 "room" in the basement. I say "room" because well, it's not finished. It doesn't have a door or walls. It's just studs. It's really dark, cold, and I don't have much storage. I am nothing but a poor middle school student (though I have a bit of money), so I need cheap-ish ideas. Anything will do! Thank you everyone!
10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Candy/Sweet Swap! on: July 02, 2007 08:15:14 AM
Hello! I think a candy or sweets swap would be a lot of fun. People could make things from clay, stencil, the ideas are endless! And everybody likes SOME kind of sweet or candy. Right? Post your comments!
