*snickers* I'm glad no Grandmas were hurt.

Though possibly rendered uncomfortable.
13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: help for the girl who was "never getting married" ? on: July 24, 2008 04:30:23 PM
My wife and I were married just over two years ago, and the marriage commisioner stumbled over my name. It just didn't want to come out. And you know what? It was a great tension breaker. I was so nervous standing up there that I couldn't think straight, and when he screwed it up, my first thought was, "Every freakin' time!" But then I found THAT thought funny, and it was a great reminder that it was, really, just another day.

Onto crafting topic: My mother made our wedding cake. Nothing too fancy, but she made it herself, and with love for my bride and me. It was more special than any store-bought, picture-perfect cake. Practice your cheesecake - you've got some time before you need it finished! Or, enlist a baking-inclined friend to make you the cake as your wedding gift. You don't need everything to be flawless to still be your perfect day.

so the price isn't as great as some of those quoted above, but Walmart has kiosks that you can bring a cd/memory card/whole camera, or an image to scan, and print off pics in front of you. It's damn handy - we use it all the time.

Pins. Be they snarky or political, it can be fun to wear your heart on your sleeve (or back, as the case may be).

Great backpack by the way.

That's great! I think I want to make one for my little one when he heads off to preschool. Smiley

Second the humble request for adding a little ditty to your tutorial about the inside zippered pocket.

Please and thank you?

Heh, I just finished (ok, not finished yet. ALMOST finished) a weekender that is going to serve as my nappy bag.

I like how the change pad goes with the bag. Great minds think alike Grin

That's beautiful. I've been a bit nervous to try my hand at making my own wand (so until I get ball-sy enough, I've been going wandless Sad ) but your results are very encouraging.

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Patterns for 8 yr old boy? on: July 10, 2008 02:48:44 PM
Knitted toques (or beanies, or whatever they are called in your area) or usually a good fashion choice for boys, regardless of weather (especially if he's into skateboarding). Fingerless gloves can be a cool choice as well. My favourite knitting book is the knitter's handy book of Patterns by Ann Budd. Simple, no frills patterns for hats, gloves (including fingerless), mittens, sweaters, and vests, in multiple sizes and gauges. Great starting points for designing your own.

If you have a chance, you might also like to read Debbie Stoller's Son of Stitch n' Bitch. Her introduction is all about knitting for guys, and as a guy, I can say that her rules and guidelines for knitting for guys is pretty much right on. Plainer is usually better, don't just blindly make something of his "favourite" colour (it might be his favourite, but not his favourite to wear).

If he's into video games, 8- and 16-bit characters transfer wonderfully to intarsia. And you pretty much cannot go wrong with skulls (no matter how overdone they are today).
