hi guys,
i've had a hectic few weeks with uni/college coursework,so appologies for no posting around here (well, i'm not scheduled to get the journal for a week or two anyway)
Anyhow, please PM me if i dissappear off again and you get worried about who to send it off to.

also, are there any other uk swap thingies going on at the mo or in the pipe-line? i really wanna do another!

personally i would get it framed if you have different colours..
my mum has loads as she used to sell antique kimonos here (UK) but now they're boxed up and are occasionally taken out when we move house. when I inherit them, I am so getting them framed up really artsy style. maybe in different shapes/positions.

i remember there being a rock group who sent out stickers for one of their singles and ran a competition getting people to take photos of the sticker in the most interesting place.

perhaps you can get people to mail you a stamped-addressed-evelope and send them 20 or so back, and then see what happens. maybe set up a website for the best ones. it could be a really cool cult experimental art project. quickly go register www.july31st2006.com!

find someone with a business opening on that day...
maybe a night club or something.
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What to do with eyelash yarn??? on: January 14, 2006 12:02:40 PM
well, i thought about giving it to a charity store, but then no-one really knits in the UK (well, some old people do, but not many young 'uns).
I recently bought a copy of Simply Knitting magazine (UK knit mag) and they have tonnes of ads for that awful eyelash stuff. I mean, who honestly in their right mind wears a bit poncho of fluff? you'd look like a giant mascot!
However, there is a pattern for a penguin and seal knitted in the stuff (they use black and silver for the penguin and silver for the seal) so i'm thinking novelty toys are the only route i'd go for....
if my eyelash (that i was donated a year or two ago) weren't made of 100% synthetic and could actually take dye, i would space dye it so atleast it looked OK as a throw mat.

i'd love to do it all again, provided the journals didn't keep coming to me everyweek as i'm overloaded with coursework at the moment (and then it'll be exams soon after that!)
i'm just thinking up themes;
one over the summer could have "favourite holiday destinations ever"
there could be a "tutor/write about how to do your favourite craft" -i.e. knitting instructions, or how to make a pair of earrings, or something like that
favourite music
favourite food (perhaps with recepies as well as pictures, though no samplings as they might all go off by the time it goes around enough times)
'time travel'

i'm just throwing ideas around here

there are some previous threads discussions:
i'd join, but need to find time before i can commit!
29  ASIA / Japan / kyoto yarn shops on: January 08, 2006 03:28:29 PM
hey there, I've just returned from a trip to japan and thought I might add two yarn stores I came across whilst in Kyoto. They're both close to Kyoto Eki (the big main-line station, and the underground station is also called Kyoto). One is in the "porta" shopping centre (its all underground) and the other is in the basement of the Kyoto Observation Tower. The Porta yarn store is far nicer in terms of yarn, but the tower store has more knitting gadgets (nice bamboo needles, needle felting stuff) and cheap yarn (if you dont mind acrylic) although their nicer yarns are on the pricey side. There is also loads of beading stuff, and sewing stuff (actually, pretty much anything crafty you could think of)
I just thought I would add these up here, though i'm sure any locals amongst you will already know these and perhaps better suggestions?

the scarf looks far simpler than you imagine; it's just a stocking stitch scarf (the tell tale sign is that the edges curl around). just deciphering the appropriate colours is probably more difficult
