1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Fair Isle Owl Not Quite Right - Help Appreciated :) on: April 07, 2010 09:35:26 AM
Blocking would solve much of the problems. From looking at it, you might also be pulling in on the edges when you switch needles, which makes the sides of you mitten get that "bump".

As for size....you could knit a lining for them, that would make it a bit smaller!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Will Clover 29" bamboo circs work for magic loop??? on: April 07, 2010 09:31:17 AM
When I use the 29 inch circs it is more like the single loop/doing a modified magic loop where you just pull the excess cord out of the way. I do tend to find that I get more stretched stitches than if I am just knitting in the round.

4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Shipping help? What packaging do you use? on: July 24, 2009 04:57:58 PM
I use recycled packaging and for just 1-2 items a shipping envelope. I use pretty much all recycled packaging (including tissue paper if I have it in stock).  It is part of my business structure to package this way.  Yes, I could package it more like a gift- and some businesses should- but for me it works.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Converted shirt to shorts on: July 09, 2009 02:59:30 PM
This really isn't a post about crafting if you're not telling us anything about it HERE on Craftster. 

Just trying to not put too many giant pictures on Craftster- it takes forever for me to load a page as is.  Sorry, there is really not much more to it than cutting and sewing the hem down anyways.  They are nice and comfy though, I have been wearing them while working!

See this shirt? It fits funny, not flattering in the least. The elastic bunches up higher than the waist should when you move around leaving you lookingodd.

S0 I converted it to a pair of shorts, using the elastic as the top, and the bottom edges as is so I didn't have to sew more hems.

(More on how I did it and the tutorial I used on my blog entry http://www.microfemme.com/2009/06/converting-a-shirt-to-pj-shorts/  )

I intended them to be Pj's, but have been wearing them around the house when I am working too.  Quite comfy!
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Sushi! on: July 03, 2009 04:28:38 PM
nat_attack- I can find all the ingredients near me in regular grocery stores. 

I like to make it with avocado and a bit of cucumber.
