1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: jewelry making kit for Mom's bday - what to include? on: March 14, 2007 12:15:27 PM
Thank you!  That's a great list and exactly what I needed.  Smiley
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / jewelry making kit for Mom's bday - what to include? on: March 14, 2007 11:49:38 AM
I'm a knitter, not a jewelry maker, but my lovely Mom has been getting into beads and I'd like to set her up with a jewelry making kit for her birthday next month.  What do ya'll think are the important tools and stuff to include?  Right she's just doing individual strands of beads - mainly bracelets - and I'd love to see her branch out to earings and some cool necklaces. 

Thanks so much for your help!  Smiley
3  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: 1st socks knitalong? on: January 20, 2007 09:30:05 PM
I'll join your first sock knitalong!  Socks have been on my list of things to try for  long time now so might as well try now!

Any luck deciding on a pattern?  Were you thinking of trying the magic loop or two circulars methods?  I have some links for both of those bookmarked I could dig up.

Hopefully this won't be totally frustrating!  heehee!  Smiley
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / paintbox clutch from knitting bag - pattern question on: January 17, 2007 08:48:41 PM
I'm getting started on the Paintbox Clutch from knittingbag.com. Seems like a simple enough pattern but I need a little help...

The beginning of the pattern reads,
1.   Work st st for 4 rows
2.   Purl 1 row on the right side (RS)
3.   Then work st st for 4 more rows.  Purl 1 row on RS
4.   Work st st for 8 rows.

So, maybe I'm over thinking this but when I start the second set of stst on the 3rd line do I still start with a knit or purl row??  Smiley

Oooo...that turned out very nice!  I had that pattern bookmarked and had forgotten about. Might have to raid my stash and see if I have some yarns that would work.  Thanks for posting!  Looks great!
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: Clothing ideas for the hospital? on: January 04, 2007 10:02:43 PM

have you seen the Binsi skirts?   I'm sure you could sew something similar.  Having something that was two pieces, rather than a nightgown would be best, I think.  You'd feel covered up and comfy but be "accessible" enough.

My daughter is 25 days old now and I totally obsessed about what clothes to wear and bring but in the end I wore the hospital gown with a comfy cami underneath.  I labored at home and hit the hospital fully dilated so I'm not sure what I would have liked to wear if I labored at the hospital but I'd highly suggest the cami since it was easy to nurse in but kept me from flashing all my visitors when the ugly gown fell open or came untied.  I was worried about what to wear on my bottom half afterwards but really there was so much blood and crazy disposable underwear and icepacks (etc, etc) that I didn't mind wearing the hospital gown.

I hope the birth goes like you plan and your baby is happy and healthy!  It's an amazing experience! Congrats!

Congrats on the new little one and the great looking new sling!  He looks nice and comfy in there!

I am the proud mama of a 25 day old baby girl and have been eying some instructions and posts about making slings myself.  I bought a New Native sling but I can't seem to get it right - I think it's too big!  Might as well return it and make my own!  Would you mind sharing which tutorial you used? 

Congrats again!
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: Cribs-style kid's kitchen from an old entertainment center on: December 30, 2006 03:29:45 PM
Soooooooo cute!  We have the exact same entertainment center and it's been banished to an empty room since we got our new one.  I showed your pictures to my husband and he said, "Wow!  Save that!!" 

Hahaha!  Keep in mind our daughter is 20 days old so we have awhile before she needs a play kitchen.  I think I will print your post out for future reference.  Thanks for sharing all of the details with everybody!

SOoooooo smart!  This is WAY better than the one we just bought because it doesn't add bulk to the baby at all.  Love it!  What a great idea.  I'm sure the pockets will come in handy too!
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Earflap hat w/ pompoms on: November 20, 2006 03:21:53 PM
Ooops, oops!  I got so excited about the cute hat that I didn't realize I was in the crochet section!  The knitted hat link probably won't do anybody any good in here.  Sorry!  Smiley  Darn!  Now I wish I knew how to crochet.
