1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Am I knitting wrong? on: February 27, 2007 03:12:50 PM
Unfortunately I have no video or photo to show you how I knit, but my knitting teacher told me I can't knit "right."

I was working away with a rib knit and she took my needles from me and told me I had to hold the yarn with my right hand.

I'm a right handed knitter but I throw the yarn with my left hand, but she told me I have to throw with my right... Which is really slow, but either way it comes out the same. She told me I'm knitting wrong.  Cry

But I know there's different ways to knit, so am I really doing it WRONG or is she wrong, or does it even make a difference?
2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegetarian food for a goodbye party on: July 15, 2006 06:55:11 PM
I know nothing about vegetarian cooking and I wouldn't be able to get to a bookstore to get a cook book..
My friend is going back home to her native Germany and we're throwing her a going away party and she's a vegetarian.
Problem is, we need to make enough food for about 15 people that is vegetarian friendly and omnivore friendly.
She's the guest of honor so we'd like to make everything vegetarian, but the rest of the guests eat meat.
I would really really, REALLY appreciate recipes and ideas for vegetarian dishes that aren't too difficult to make and can be made in large batches.

Thanks in advance.
3  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / How easy is it to dye denim? on: February 15, 2006 06:00:57 PM
I have a very, very light/faded pair of blue jeans. And I have 3 bottles of navy RIT dye.
Would the denim take on the dye? Is there any possibility it would eat away at it?

Also, I have a corset I bought at hottopic but I decided I want to make it purple, it's already an offwhite/ivoryish color. But I guess it's considered a delicate, I don't put it in the washing machine, so if I were to dye it, would putting it in a bucket of RIT do the trick? I've never used RIT for anything so I don't really know how it works. I don't want to ruin either, I paid a lot for the "corset" so.. in the end would I just be better off not touching it with dye and just buying another?

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What can take 50+ hours of work? on: September 02, 2005 06:24:50 PM
     I have to come up with a project for my senior year in order to graduate. Well, it can be absolutely anything. But I thought a mini fashion show would be awesome. Anyway, I'm terrible with a sewing machine but this'll give me an excuse to get lessons. TO THE POINT. I have no idea what in the world could take 50 hours of work. Or maybe I"m just not taking everything into consideration.

    I wanted to make either a full outfit.
Dress, shoes, purse, and hat.
or multiple dresses. Like prom dresses or something.
   I'd also make my own "patterns". I can't read patterns to be honest  Cry So I'd have to make my own.
   I was also thinking about making multiple corsets, under and overbust and selling them. Like a little entreuprenurship (sp?), but I was told I'd have to hand sew leather and pvc. Sad I don't have patterns or know where to get boning.

    ANYWAAAAAY. I was wondering if any of you could recommend what to make. Or any advice on how to do it.

This got way longer than expected.

Please help me
! Any suggestions whatsoever would rock.
