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

Lellibo, I hate it when that happens! I made a face for a sock creature the other week and it was Way too big for the body once I got that done. I'm going to save it to use on something else though, it was labour intensive!

Ah Pix, never fear. You chose great partners even if I didn't know it yet. It's just not like me to not have a thousand ideas straight off. Usually I can't decide and end up making Tons of stuff but this time I was just... at a loss! Totally fixed now. Have to choose from way too many ideas now Cheesy.

Lucky you, I spend hours embroidering that face Tongue. Good thing I can salvage it!

I'm antsy to get started but I have to go to a fabric store first and that will take a few days. It's gonna drive me Crazy!

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.
