1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Question on modifying kittyville hat on: September 17, 2006 08:29:25 PM
Actually, could the sharper decrease have anything to do with the fact you k the 1st st and then the next 2tog? maybe if I knit the 1st 2tog it would be different.
In any case thanks for the reply, i'm just gonna play around with it using your suggestion.

It's pretty much an every other row decrease. Heres the ear directions.

"pu 12 sts
work 2 rows in seed stitch
Row 3:*K1, K2tog, seed st to last 3 sts, K2 tog, K1
Row 4: seed st
Rep rows 3-4 until 4 sts remain. Then K1, K2tog, K1, turn: K1, K2tog, turn: and K2tog. Break off yarn and pull through last stitch"

It's not a super sharp triangle, but even if I worked a straight row when I had say 6, or 4 stitches left on the needle, it wouldnt be very round from how they look to me.
3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Question on modifying kittyville hat on: September 17, 2006 07:02:41 PM
I've made a few kittyville hats with no problem. I would like to make the ears on my current one rounded, basically making it a mouse hat. I also wanted the ears to be a bit wider so I figured id just pu a few extra stitches.
My boyfriends sisters birthday is coming up, and she is pretty obsessed with mice. I thought it would be a cute present.
Anyway, I think with some trial and error I could wing it, as I'm not sure how to make a more gradual rounded decrease for the ears. I just thought maybe I could ask here first if anyone knew how to do this, I'm pretty much a knitting novice in the sense I'm a pattern slave.
Any ideas?
Thanks Undecided
4  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Anyone ever infuse vodka? Or make schnapps/liquers for gifts? on: September 07, 2006 11:36:28 AM
I'm a bartender, and myself and one guy I work with are constantly in competition for new yummy drinks. After he came up with a with a great wasabi bloody mary mixture, I got thinking about gingers.
I'm currently tooling around with ginger infused vodka for ginger martinis. Next i'm hoping to fool around with saki some. i think a ginger saki martini sounds fabulous.

I've also painted mine with nail polish. Nothing too cheap,  I usually get my hands on some semi pricey stuff from Sally's.
Its always held up well,  but that being said i'm not prone to dropping my phone, or really even using it that much.

A friend of mine where I live(upstate NY) has a mainly clothing consignment shop. Clothing is 60/40 you, but her craft consignments are 80/20....it may be less for other people, but that's what I get. I think 60/40 isn't so bad.
7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Glass Head on: August 26, 2006 07:43:57 PM
I'm not sure what to do with it, and i'm not sure if I missed someone mentioning it here, but i'm fairly sure those are worth quite a bit of money
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Using religious iconography/objects in your crafting - right or wrong? on: August 26, 2006 03:58:24 PM
I consistently bastardize religious imagery in much of the sculpture that I do. I suppose in that context it lends itself more to being pop art and I am trying to elicit a reaction.
Though my goal is not to offend, it happens  and i'm happy with that because any reaction achieved makes me feel accomplished. I want to move people, in any direction really. Well in honesty I like to shock people.
That being said, I find religious and iconic artwork to be some of the most beautiful, and have a whole room in my home devoted to just that, as is, no bastardisation if you will.
Religious items come down to your perception of them, and I don't think one person using them in a way they were intended is blatantly disrespectful. Bottom line is, If your not Christian what does the rosary really mean to you, probably nothing. But it may make a damn fine necklace, and that I think is fine.

I say take this opportunity to learn how to do some super simple sewing. All you need to do is sew a straight line. It would be quick and easy to do by hand if you dont have a machine.
Just fold the top of your fabric over so there is enough room in the fold to slip the curtain rod through, and then fold over and sew any unfinished edges.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: HELP! I need ideas for a cafe! on: August 15, 2006 07:55:57 PM
My boyfriend and his family own an extremely successful jazz focused cafe unlike anyplace i've ever been. I give much credit for their success to atmosphere.
It really feels like your at home. Cluttered but not messy. There is soft lighting, candles chinese lanterns etc. Many framed album covers, and tons of artwork. The color scheme is warm oranges and yellows. Lots of plush seating mixed with vintage style dining room tables. The ones made of formica. They have alot of interesting board games, and coffee table books, bookcases, magazine racks. There are communtiy bulletin boards. Hmmm....what else.
They have a piano, geez I can't think of anything else. it just feels warm and lived in. The complete opposite of those horrible starbux type chain places.
