21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Penis Cozy! (work safe) on: December 24, 2005 01:00:38 PM
The pattern linked worked fine for me so it isn't just you. 

The perfect gift for a hunter or as I call them "the blind and deaf guy asleep up in a tree."  You can be on a walk with them with turkeys roosting in the trees over head and they will say, "I haven't seen a turkey yet this season."  Seriously. I think they may need a bit of protection.  Hmmmmm, do we knit it in tones of green or bright orange..... Smiley  I know just the person who needs one!

BTW That knitted digestive system is fab-u-luos!  I'll be knitting that for my friend who is doing his residency.  He'll love it.  Perfect for explaining stuff no one wants to hear: "If you look at this knitted digestive system, this is where the problem is." LOL!

Great projects!

UPDATE: Scrapbook Central (Just north of I-275 on St.Rt.42) is closing.  Currenlt the entire store is 40% off.  There is still a good selection of paper and stickers and pens but adhesives and refills are mostly gone.  They may still have some of their paper racks left.  They were taking names for those and as they clear out their paper they will call down the list. This is the type they have: http://www.thescrapbookplace.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=4523&HS=1
They are probably going to be $50 but you must pick them up.  No shipping.  Anyway, here the letter about why they are closing and directions:

There is an Archivers over at Deerfield Town Center (north on Mason-Montgomery from I-71) 5125 Deerfield Boulevard 45040.  Sign up for their newsletter as you get a coupon for free cardstock each month.
23  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: white elephant anyone? on: December 10, 2005 08:18:29 AM
That's a perfect idea.  Same situation here. Found out yesterday that we need a $10 gift for a white elephant gift exchange.....tonight.  I haven't given a gift to a stranger since I was in gradeschool.  I haven't bought un-needed gifts in ten years.  I had no clue.....but I do have a scarf I knitted for myself.  Now I just need a tag.  Thanks for the idea.

Here are some ideas my book club told me just in case someone else needs ideas: a stud finder, a traffic cone with current magazines on topics no one would want, a big box of scrap paper, white glue, scissors and crayon, a fruit cake and finally, a wood box from the craft store filled with nails, bolts, screws and the like, which is my favorite.
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Reshape a Hockey Jersey? on: December 08, 2005 01:56:41 PM
I have to admit that since our AHL team left the city this year, I decided to give them, except for the 2 I sold on ebay and the 2 for my NHL teams, to the place where my husband plays so they have extras when they need them.  Strangely, I actually managed to profit a few dollars.  No sense in altering the cheap $5 garage sale find if the team is no longer in the city.  Oh well. My plans for the hockey jerseys are gone....

I wouldn't worry.  I think it was in at least a couple cats so it was just probably time to remove it in the normal course of their product turnover.  I think it usually only about 3 or so months they keep stuff in stock there.  If you found it in a store, it would probably be on clearance ... for $69.98  Grin
26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Easy Knitted Dog Collar on: December 06, 2005 08:43:00 PM
My greyhounds are so wonderful that I thought they should be on my new years card this year.  But their collars have been very mistreated since they have learned the skill of removing them and leaving them outside for me to hunt down after rainstorms.  So I decided to knit them some fun collars to wear in the photo.  They are staring at a treat that my husband is mocking them with so I could get a photo.  Yes, they each got one after this photo.

How to knit this collar: I used a bulky yarn (Mint Blue is Caron Simply Soft Boucle) and a super bulky yarn (Purple is Bernat Velour).  Both were knitted on size 13 needles (9.0mm).  For the greyhounds, I casted on 30 stitches.  Depending on the neck size of your dog (or cat or boytoy or whatever), youll either need to add or more likely subtract.  Anyway all you do is cast on row 1 and then just cast off row 2.  Thats it.  I added a button later for attaching purposes but a nice little bow works too as they are here in the photo. 

It is nice and stretching so if the dogs get it caught on something, they can get out of it without too much effort.  It is also much lighter than my normal collars for the greyhounds and they cant use their normal trick to get out of it.  Normally, they just lean their heads down, put their ears forward and shake until gravity takes care of the pesky collars.  Next will be a little knitted bag for covering their dog tags so those stop making so much noise.

(Yes, both of my greyhounds are rescues and as lazy as a cat! I think their old collars were uncomfortable during all their naps.)

I think Anthropologie is on to us.  The capelet from Winter collection is no longer on the web site.I hope no one was dying to pay $98 for it instead on knitting it yourself.  Ouch! Cheesy  Thanks for the tut!  On my list after the project I started today.

AWynkoop - From the looks of the photo, we're about the same size.  This should be great to make.   Thanks for posting and answering my questions.  I'm going to have to figure out which color of yarn (no white!) to give this a try on.  The husband is going to love it!  Cheesy
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Knitty"s Allusion on: December 03, 2005 04:36:23 PM
That is so cool! I'm so making one for my husband's birthday.  He'll love it! However, after looking at the mannequin with almost my skin tone (and how did she get my hair!), I'll be going a color other than white. 

Now, my questions: How long did it take you to knit it? Did the cup part work out ok? Does the eyelet border bug you when you wear it?
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Christina Ricci Inspired Fur Coat on: November 25, 2005 10:22:01 AM
I like it too!  It looks great and one of a kind.  Which pattern did you use?

I've had the same problem with my cat when I made a "fur" cape for a halloween costume.  I ended up making her a pillow of the leftover fabric and a kitten sized stuffed "friend" so she would be happy.  If my greyhounds even got near that pillow, she would hiss and wack them on their noses.  Very entertaining watching 70 pound dogs run from a 9 pound cat.   Cheesy
