11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Identification of technique? on: December 13, 2007 06:14:52 PM
Is this what you're looking for? 
This tutorial was posted on Craftster after a l-o-n-g discussion about these great purses.  If you search for "candy wrapper purse" you can read the saga.
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: It's impossible to find a pattern for a stitch like this! RAWG RAWG! on: December 13, 2007 05:34:49 PM
It is a knit hat, so I'd suggest posting your question, with that great photo, to the knitters.  There are some real smarties over there who might be able to help with a knitting pattern.  Then you can enjoy learning to knit if you don't already.   
13  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Paper Mache Recipe? on: December 13, 2007 05:17:04 PM
Do you have access to a library?  I have found many craft books with a million different recipes for paper pulp and all kinds of ideas for paper mache.  Since I can't afford to purchase all the great books full of ideas, I'm a real fan of the library and always recommend it.   
14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Fancy cupcake wrappers - how did they do this? on: December 13, 2007 04:29:08 PM
Gosh! Those are just fabulous and far too exquisite to just rip away from your everyday cupcake.  And maybe laser cut?  The image of the one lying flat was enlightening.  They are just the sides of the wrapper, wrapped around the cupcake which must be in a "real" paper wrapper.  No bottom.  Just the curved strip as wide as you'd want the wrapper to be tall.  You could figure out just the right curve and length of paper strip to fit around your little cakes and then go to work making a decorative top edge.  I'd think fancy scissors and punches might work, of course not for the incredible detail of those in your link, but still mighty cute.  I was thinking red paper with a cute edge and little hearts punched out for Valentine's Day.

Carol Duvall's show CDW-304 has directions and diagrams.  Here is the address:
If that doesn't work, go to www.HGTV.com and enter CDW-304 into the "search" box.  They are called "Velvet Ornaments"  in the list (because they made them out of velvet, of course).  Enjoy!

Another possibility is Vogue's "Ribbed Socks" which is a vintage Vogue pattern but it's also included in Vogue Knitting's The Ultimate Sock Book.   It's a basic top down sock.  The pattern says the child size finished foot length is 5 1/4".  That book is a wonderful reference and might also be available in your local library.
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Provisional cast-on? on: November 02, 2007 02:44:15 PM
Here's another method that might be easier for you, from Stahman's Shawls & Scarves:  use waste yarn of a bit heavier weight and a crochet hook larger than your needles.  Crochet a chain about six stitches longer than the number of stitches you are to cast on.  Cut the yarn and pull the end through the last loop to fasten.  Turn the crocheted chain so that the "bumps" are on top, facing you.  Using your knitting needle and the "real" yarn pick up a stitch in each crocheted stitch until you have the right number cast on.  When you are ready to get rid of the crocheted row, just undo the end and "unzip" the crocheted chain. 
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Where did the even rows go? on: September 24, 2007 09:51:01 PM
I agree...those directions weren't the greatest.  I guess the important part of the sentence is "as they appear".  As you start to work on the wrong side of a row of stitches that you just knit, they "appear" to be purl, so you'd purl them.  And you'll end up with stockinette lace rather than garter stitch lace, as mentioned previously.  Lovely scarf!
