I like my partner! I've got a ton of ideas and can't decide which to do. If I did all of them it'd be like 15 points worth!

I finally decided to make up my mind on what to make...so that I can go yarn shopping tomorrow.  Can't wait Cheesy

Have just about finished item no. 1 for my lovely partner. Just have to attach pockets and it's all done. Then I gotta figure out the best way to do the other things lol.
I agree you did a great job on partners Pix, you picked an awesome partner for me - we've been chatting about everything but crafting for days now lol, it's been great fun to log on everyday and see a new humorous message for me to read.
I've learnt more about parts of America in those few days than I have in the past few years lol.

Grrrr. I went to my local yarn shop, I was finally going to give in and buy a yarn from the store (I'm just not a big fan of the owner). They didn't have it. The closest store is about 45 minutes away. I guess I will be ordering it online. Which will allow me do the other pieces first. But geez, I wanted to do the ________ FIRST! Not Last!

I'm back from my camping trip and ready to get going now.  I've got to look through my patterns and pick ONE.  Ideas galore are swimming around my brain as I've had time to stew over this one.  So excited to spend some quality time in my crafting room.

I've heard it both ways.

I'm looking to swap some knit &/or crocheted crafts for handmade CP/HP soap.

Crikey, I hope you live somewhere that isn't 95 degrees and humid like it is here. I couldn't imagine knitting outside in this heat.


I have a question for all you yarnies out there! I'm trying to find a yarn that when I felt it won't be stiff and itchy? I'm used to double stranding lamb's pride bulky to make felted items, but that's for things that I need to stand up on their own or what not (ie, a bag). I was thinking of doing a single strand of lamb's pride bulky with a bigger gauge or using lamb's pride worsted. But I'm nervous to try and have it not work out.

Anyone have any yarns that will felt and not end up rough and itchy? I'm open to any suggestion!

Try Cascade 220.  It's a worsted weight, and can be felted to be quite stiff, but it doesn't have to be.  There are a TON of colors too, so you can find pretty much anything you want.

Felting?  I've wanted to try felting something for awhile now.  I've got a beautifu sweater that I absolutely love that's been washed one too many times and no longer fits.  I just haven't found the right project for it yet.  And I'm still in love with felted balls, too.  They just feel so good in your hand.  And who doesn't enjoy wizzing the little buggers at hubby's head?  Maybe that's just me Roll Eyes If he doesn't get over this obsession with jumping out of corners at me, and making me scream bloody murder, I may have to knit a pair of numchuks and take him down.

Well, I've decided what I want to make, I've purchased the yarn, AND I've started crocheting. I'm having to write up my own pattern though, so there's been a lot of frogging going on!!! All attempts were turning out great - just not great enough to my satisfaction. I think that with all the frogging I've done, I would have had time to finish two Cheesy The curse of a perfectionist...
