371  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: *Boogie Dancing* hot recon dress (now with directions) on: February 22, 2005 04:28:50 PM

If you have time, would you post slightly more detailed instructions on how you did the zig-zagged bottom part of the skirt? A close-up picture might work too. That part really adds a lot to the dress, and I know if I tried to wing it, I'd mess it up.
372  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Voulez Vous Crochet Avec Moi? Call for submissions for next SnB book on: February 22, 2005 03:45:37 PM
I'm also wondering about the 'already been published' rule. I work part time at my LYS and we have a big (but unofficial) file full of xeroxed patters that the customers get free when they buy the yarn for the project. I will definitely refrain from sharing my patterns with the customers if it means the submission won't be accepted.

It seems like I signed up for this months ago. I'm guessing everyone else feels the same way, since we're all almost done making our stuff  Grin I can't wait to see what kind of loot I get!

This is coming along much faster than I thought it would. (I'm double-stranding both yarns.) Progress so far on the back panel:

376  UNITED STATES / Texas / Re: favorite TX thrift stores? on: February 18, 2005 10:14:52 AM
Houston has TONS of good ones. For super-cheap thrift stores, Savers, Retropolis and Value Village are good. For higher quality vintage stuff, The Way We Wore is my favorite.
377  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Got my yarn yesterday on: February 16, 2005 09:09:35 AM
It's a good thing I decided to buy my yarn at the store instead of ordering it over the net. Not only was Homespun on sale at Joanns for $4 a ball, but the color I wanted turned out to be really ugly so I changed my mind. I went with pink body/black fur:

I'm having lots of issues with gauge, though. I'm thinking I should have sprung for the $140 worth of fur it suggested, because double stranding this Nordica stuff is having strange results. I already had to start over 3 times because what I thought was going to be 25" wide across the bottom turned out to be 30". I guess 2 gauge swatches weren't enough  Angry (But that's why I'm making this a year in advance, right?)

I really like the one with the ribbon. I think I might do that for a cozy I'm making for a friend of mine. I never would have thought of it. Well, maybe I would have, but it would have taken a while.

I love your user name, I think it's cute. My mom's name is sheryl, and she uses Trisheratops for her internet stuff
379  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: my first yarn!! on: February 13, 2005 02:49:42 PM
Great yarn, I can't wait to try spinning. I work Saturdays at my LYS (the woolie ewe) and I wish we sold spinning accessories so I could try it. Speaking of that, I propose a spinning forum on Craftster so's I can learn from you guys.

I found this place in California that will spin your pet's fur into yarn for you, and I think I'm thinking about doing it. I have a long haired white kitty that I'm brushing feverishly to collect enough ounces of hair. Also, they claim to remove all the enzymes from it, so you wont get yarn back that has dog-stink when you get it wet. She sells wolf-yarn, cat-yarn, and other stuff too (presumably so you can buy it if you don't have a brushable pet of your own)
380  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Jaeger "Foxy" fur-trim coat--Any brave souls care to join me? on: February 13, 2005 02:12:47 PM
I guess it's weird that I'm starting my first gigantic sweater/jacket project now, but I figure this way I'll have almost a whole year to mess up/start over/perfect it by the time next winter gets here. It's the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen:


The yarn it calls for is pretty expensive, so I'm ordering Lion Brand Homespun as a substitute for the body and still looking for a cheap big-big-fur to use for the trim. According to the gauges given on the pattern and Lion Brand's website, Homespun knits up a bit bigger than Jaeger's natural fleece, which works out well because the XXL-42" bust is still a little too small for me.

Unfortunately, the pattern isn't free, but the book where I found it has lots of great patterns in it, so I think its worth a splurge. (Are we allowed to "share" patterns?) Here's a link to where you can buy it--Jaeger's JB23 collection: http://www.theknittinggarden.com/ja-magjb23.htm
