That's really sweet! If you added some pointy, pointy teeth and some dripping blood, it could be the killer rabbit from Monty Python!
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: mispronunciations! 'fess up! on: March 20, 2008 11:59:43 AM
I've only heard voile pronounced like boil, but who knows how right that is.  Most of my Jo-Ann coworkers are pretty good about pronunciations, but that one doesn't come up too often.
voile should be pronounced like "vwall" (in French, the oi dipthong is pronounced "wa")
Also, earlier someone asked about how to spell "wa la," like when you unveil something. It's spelled "voi-la." Translation: "Look at that!"
I had way too many years of French in school...in Indiana! Never mind that my mom is Japanese.

Maybe a colored sharpie? It seems like the mat could absorb the color, which would keep it from rubbing off on you. You would have to use a pretty dark color, though, based on the color of your mat.
Another option might be some of that paint used on those foam craft things that kids make door hanger signs and stuff like that. I think there is a kind of marker for those things that helps with contrast. If you have a shiny side and a not-shiny side, you would probably want to use the not-shiny side.
Hope this helps!

Maybe you could make a quilted box, kind of like how you sew a bowl, but make it a box. If you use some stiff interfacing, you could applique some appropriate imagery, like a CTR or something like that. I would bet that you could make it really scrappy and cool looking and it wouldn't have to cost very much.

I think the term you're looking for is "duplicate stitch." It's a great way to get color work on your knitting without having to mess with intarsia or fairisle techniques. You can find all kinds of information all over the place, now that you have the terminology down. One person's instructions that I like is Jennifer Stafford's in her Domiknitrix book. Good luck!

OMG! That's so freakin' awesome! I know that getting that variation of color to make it 3D is difficult as all hell. I'm hitting the "this rocks" button for you!
