1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: December 18, 2007 09:59:53 AM
Two years ago I brought home two recipe tins from my Grandma's house that belonged to my great great aunt with the intention of scanning them and making a book for my family members (my super crafty idea here).

The night before last I FINALLY got to them. I took both drawers out and laid them on the floor so I could look through them. After an hour I got a little bored and went to do laundry. While I was putting away the laundry I tripped over one of the tins. It had a bent corner in the back and caught between two of my toes! Yea! It bled profusely and I had to have my DH tend to my foot.

Ironically my aunts name was Grace. haahaaaa.

I volunteered for Operation Christmas Child last holiday season. Here in the US its run by Samaritan's Purse, which I have no idea if it is in other countries (and frankly I'm too lazy to look it up right now Wink). Samaritan's purse is run by Franklin Graham. You know, the creepy son of creeepy Billy Graham...  Anyway, it was a nice experience, I went with my brother and his friend, who both have Down syndrome, very hands on and easy for them to understand.

On with my rant:

My problem:  We were required to give contact information "in case of emergency." APPARENTLY "emergency" meant "in case they need money." We were getting two letters about every other week asking for money (my husband went too, hence the two letters). So wasteful and irritating. I then wrote them asking to be removed from their mailing list.  What do I receive in the mail a few days later?? Not one, but TWO books (you know, one for me and one for my husband Roll Eyes)!!!!!  I was ticked off!  I wrote to the explaining how I felt harassed and that after asking to be removed from the mailing list they sent me a book! WTF?!

Anyway, the point of my rant: if you want to volunteer, make up an address or something on their "emergency" forms!  They only use it to pester you for money!

oh man, I got the whole body part done and I ran out of yarn.  crapola.  I bought the yarn a year ago too, so I don't think I'll be able to match it.

 Embarrassed  thats what I did at the sleeve increases and I had holes. Am I doing it wrong?  you pick the bar up and then knit into the back, right?

I have a general question about making increases.  When I did the increase for the sleeve part, I got a big hole. My friend who is a pro knitter said that that would happen with that kind of increase and showed me this magical "invisible" increase which I promptly forgot.  So when I got the the increasing on each end, you know, k5, m1, whatever, I did the increase where you knit into the front and then you knit into the back of the same stitch. so I got a bump that looks like a purk stitch AND a hole.  So I don't really want my sweater littered with holes, so if anyone has any pointers I would really appriciate it!  thank you!
8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: What's the best project for learning cables? on: August 18, 2005 07:55:16 PM
I learned how to do cables with the basic cable hat in snb nation.  It was really easy, the instructions were super easy to follow too. I also made the hat in hip to knit, the round one with the poofy ball on top. It was cute but the instuctions were kind of hard to follow and you knit it flat so you end up with a dorky seam up the back, unless you're really good at seaming stuff up, which i'm not.

quartney......... I understand and accept your HA! cause a few months before that I broke my foot in 12 places cause I was walking down the sidewalk. And that's the entire story. Just said "Ow! I thinks its broken." People always are saying "HA!"

this isn't a craft related injury, but your post reminded me. When I was a sophmore in college I broke my big toe when I tripped over the cord to my nintendo.  I had to have surgury and a pin and they put a cast on my leg all the way up to my knee!   It was really embarrassing when people would ask me how I broke my leg and I would have to admit that I didn't break my leg, but that I broke my big toe on the nintendo.  Embarrassed

Not to be annoying or anything, but there seems to be some disagreement about political discussions on Craftster. If you click on the help button it says under the "ettiquette, tips, and dos and don'ts" to "keep your discussions on the topic of crafting."
