1  Re: postage stamp necklaces... (tutorial added.) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Alice 3000 on: December 13, 2005 11:19:23 AM
I'm having fun messing around with this technique. Mess being the operative word.  My second attempt (the ornament with the dog in the picture) is of my sister's black lab/English bulldog mix, Truck. My sister is due to have her first baby any minute. Hopefully her birthing skills will be better than my soldering skills. Lump city. I'll probably still give it to her, but I don't think it's worthy of being wrapped. 

Attempt #3, the snowman, turned out much more smooth, I think because I switched from silver solder to a tin/antimony blend that was easier to use. All of it was lead free, of course. 

Is anyone having trouble with moisture inside the glass? As I work, little oily spots appear. Perhaps it's the flux leeching in? Does anyone know how to fix this?

2  Cool pompom scarf... any ideas? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Alice 3000 on: November 11, 2005 07:18:15 AM

I found these scarves in the Title Nine catalog, and I'm trying to figure out how to make hand-made versions. I've never seen yarn with big pompoms, so the only solution I can think of is buying a skein of yarn and a bag of pom poms and stringing them every few inches.

I've been trying to think of a way to add the pompoms while knitting, which would be cool, because you could create a pattern as you go -- sort of like intarsia. I guess you could manually sew the pomps in, but I really like the way they're embedded in the scarf.

So what do you think, Craftsters? Any wicked creative  ideas?
