Thanks for that info! I'm hoping my next try won't be as papery, but it's nice to know that it really doesn't matter all that much anyhow.
4  COOKING / Dessert / Re: kitty litter box cake...YUCK on: April 15, 2005 01:16:07 PM
Hey, I made the litter box cake a couple of years ago for my boyfriend's birthday! It was lots of fun. I used a coconut almond cake for the light parts and some other kind as the second cake, but I forget what it was. I spelled out HAPPY BIRTHDAY with the tootsie rolls and served it all up with a litter scoop and put it into plastic animal food bowls.

It was not so well received at first, but when he was forced to try it, he loved it!

Wow, that looks great! Good idea.

I hope you get the results you want from the felting process. I've found that sometimes it takes a lot longer to get to the felt ideal. How are you doing it? I have found that throwing in some jeans and putting it in the dryer has helped. A lot of instructions say to never put anything felty in the dryer, but I say "instructions be damned".

Good luck!

Here's my first attempt at the transfer thing:

I'm sure I did a few things wrong, as I'm impulsive and I didn't do my research and barely followed the instructions that came with my paper.

I don't know if you can tell from the pictures, but there are areas where the paper didn't come off and I had to scrape at the little pieces that were stuck. The shirt I used has 2% spandex, so I'm wondering if that had something to do with the problem. Also, I'm using paper that came with the printer I had two printers before the one I have now (I've been meaning to try it out, really) so I'm wondering if that might have contributed to the problem as well. These are Canon t-shirt transfers, BTW.

Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to trying it out again once I hit the thrifts and find some more shirts.

The image is of chairs designed by Paul McCobb that we like to collect and use with our dining room table. I found the picture online and converted it to duotone in Photoshop.  I'm trying to get results good enough that I can make a shirt for my boyfriend - he caught me picking at the transfer paper stuck on the shirt and thought the image was incredibly cool, so really, I'm halfway there.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: what's your favourite knitting tip or trick? on: April 13, 2005 07:55:07 AM
Here's one for counting rounds on DPNs that I learned from a member of our SnB:

- Use a permanent marker to color in the tip of one of your DPNs and make this your first working needle.
- Place a marker at the beginning of the round, or just use the tail as your guide.
- The next time that you have the marked needle as your working needle *and* you've got your marker/tail in front of you, you have done 5 rounds.

I just mark my units of 5 on a piece of paper. That's 1/5 of the marking right there!

Excellent sweater!

Thanks for mentioning that book! It's available at my local library, but it's currently checked out. I wonder if another craftster member has it... (Chicago Public Library - Harold Washington branch, anyone?)

As soon as I get my hands on the book, I'm making one of them sweaters!
