you can look for this stuff called "bubble jet" that you can coat a piece of fabric with and print on it with a regular ole ink jet printer. it has a much nicer effect than iron on transfers...
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / in photoshop HELLLL!!! on: November 05, 2005 08:55:46 AM
okay guys, here's my dilemma.... the professor for my silkscreening processes class has the ability to separate an image into very fine diagonal (hatched) lines and can even separate a CKMY image into 4 separate printed layers for printing. I just got adobe photoshop cs and i cannot for the freaking life of me figure out how to print an image with the hatching. i have gone into the print preview window and have selected "color management" and "separations" as the tutorial on the adobe website says, but it is not giving me hatched lines as in shows it should. my profs computer has a completely different number of print options on the print screen and i learned that way and can't seem to figure my version out because it is different....

i need the hatching because solid fields of color or pixelization don't allow for enough detail...

any help i can get would be very much appreciated!

um, so what's the point in removing people's "politically charged" comments? part of the reason we are all here is to make our own statements with the things we make, right? haha.. i guess just find censorship to be really out of place on a website that should be all about expressing yourself-- what do you guys think?

Where is the other apostrophe?Two letters are missing, not just one! You can't flout English grammar just because you're "hip"!...

P.S. Any cowgirl worth her salt knows you can't make a decent lasso with yarn, but they promote this myth, too...scandalous!!

hahhahahhaha. that was so great.

its actually not loose at all because the ribbing allows for a lot of stretching... i think my measurement was taking that into account. also, the way i want to wear it is kind of long, almost to my hips so it needs to be able to fit comfortably over my jeans a little. hahaa. it is so difficult describing these things... hopefully sooner than later i will have it finished and ready to show.

...that makes sense why i needed none of the increases then. i was kinda shocked at how big it was going to end up being had i kept them in- hahah... i would have had to stuff a D size bra if i ever wanted to wear it. i think i would like to try the mohair eventually, but for now i was just kinda eager to start and since it is winter i want to wear it right away when i finish! i think this is a cool pattern because there is lots of comfortable room for variation on a pattern that is really very simple.

oh yes! and thanks a lot Debbie for helping us out on this one!

hey! i'm happy to see that there is actually an error, because i noticed that too but have already gotten through like 2/3 of the sweater... maybe now getting to the sleeves will be much easier once we know the correction....

i am using the jo sharp silk road tweed! (haha. funny we picked similar yarns.) anyway,  i am knitting the whole thing in the same yarn and have found that when i got to the top portion i didn't need to add any of the 73+/- stitches it requires. (i suppose my bust area isn't really in need of it, and the bottom is already comfortably 34" around so that is plenty of room for me) i am making the small size.... so i hope maybe that gives you an idea of the gauge since we are using virtually the same type of yarn. also, when you get to where the yarns change i suggest you take the circular needle out and take its place with some other scrap piece of yarn, (to keep from losing your stitches, of course!) stretch the stitches out on the yarn and try it on, because 144 stitches (or however many stitches you have on there) are really scrunched up tight on a 16" circular needle and it can help you figure how many more (if any) stitches you might need to add for your bust, or if you want the ribbed part to be longer than what the pattern calls for (i did). so yay! i just started on the top portion though, so i don't know if not adding any stitches at all will look right or fit... i hope it does! :p good luck! it is a fun pattern to work on...

bah! people need to realize that the only thing that makes a word a "swear word" is the context its in. for example, i know a few people who refuse to swear so they just say the first letter of the word they really mean instead of saying the full word. they don't even stop to think about the fact that what they are saying means the EXACT same thing as the word they are trying to avoid using. it is all about context and intent. what you want a word to mean is what it means.  i hope all of that makes sense.

my point really is that in the title of the book "bitch" isn't even in the context of a swear word - it means to sit around and talk/complain - whatever.

hehe. that was my two cents!

do you guys think lamb's pride is expensive? i think it is really really reasonably priced and a nice quality... plus, the worsted weight can usually sub in well for a lot of patterns out there. Here it is only like $5.50 a skien-

I, personally, have a problem with wal-mart in that I don't think they are an ethical company and I refuse to shop there. I think it is worth it to spend a little more money on ANYTHING - not only yarn - to help support small businesses and manufacturers of products who are ethical and don't put profit before people and the environment. I also try to check up on where the yarn I buy comes from too... like, for example, if it is manufactured by dupont I wouldn't buy it because they are one of the top 30 polluting companies in America.

I'm not trying to be snobby by any means... i just can't justify saving a little money over supporting the smaller companies who deserve it. I know a lot of people don't think like I do, but I want to have an idea of where my money goes, and know that its doing some good.
