81  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: little girl's poncho on: May 21, 2004 08:30:20 AM
Rowan has a book with a lovely little poncho:


Here's a good look at the finished poncho:


Of course, if you're like me, you'll check out your local library and see if they carry it!  I just started knitting the bottom of this little project for my own 2 year old lass, but ran out of steam with all the OTHER projects I had going at the time...thus returning said book to the library with not a poncho completed.  Sigh...

I also just recently knitted the BottomsUP! bucket hat, but I did the felted version, choosing to knit the size medium (my noggin is on the smallish side...maybe...I've never compared!) since I always seem to be knitting closer to the tight-side.  Of course, I haven't thrown it in the washer yet, but prefelted, it is huge-A-mongous....so this post gets me thinking. I will let you know how mine turns out after felting! 

Oh.  And I am SO hoping the "Gigi" pattern is a good one, as I purchased that as well, and am only awaiting yarn (ok, and finishing up with a gazillion projects on the side).  I also love it...the picture, of said sweater, at least!  Has anyone made it yet?  It's interesting to read the 'quirks' (to put it mildly) people have been encountering with these patterns.

I've made one, too!  It is indeed very lovely...but with one skein, it's a smallish bag mind you...a fun, quick project.

Cool!  No really...the notebook idea.  I have a drawer that is literally jam-packed with old recipes/clippings (from various people & oh yes, the plethoria of magazines).  I just don't know why I never thought of it, though....I do the notebook thing with magazine clippings for craft projects & inspiring pictures (I have 3 big notebooks full!).  Thanks for the idea!

85  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re:Internet craft businesses: taxes? on: February 02, 2004 11:22:35 AM
I realize this thread is/was about taxes (plainmabel--thank you for so eloquently & SIMPLY giving those pointers!  Yay!)-- but I just wanted to tell of my eBay success in the past for customized-slash-vintage dolls I used to create.  Like secondhandsmoke stated about her friend, I started with ebay & that pretty much gained me a sort of 'following' (does that sound kind of creepy..err?), leading customers to my then-website & having many 'regulars' & lots of customizing requests & so forth.  I was amazed at how well it was going...I wouldn't have imagined.  Of course this was like five or so years ago when the economy was a bit better off than it is now days.

I do think selling small items on eBay is a good way to try it out...make sure you put your web address!  Just my teensy opinion from experience (I've been ebaying since 96'...does this date me or what?  yikes).

knittinkitten--I'm not aware of the 'over 18' rule on ebay...sorry..no help at all.  But if your b-day is a mere two months away, couldn't you just use this time to produce a nice little stock of your cool items (if possible?), work on your website & be ready to go when you do hit 18?  OK, maybe you're all ready already...but you're SO very close!  Soon.  Much happy luck in your venture!

om-joy!  Thank you for the linkage!  Utterably cool.  The tots love Mr. Potatoe head around here, so I very much want to show them this artsy version....and then of course, create one of my own.

87  Washington / Washington: West / Re:Seattle area on: January 28, 2004 07:34:35 PM
Just popped in to say "hey" to fellow washingtonian craftsters!  I'm thrilled to know
this forum exists.  I am just a wee bit north
of Seattle in Shoreline.  Curious...does anyone belong to/go to "the Church of Craft" gatherings in the westlake area (I believe?!) of Seattle?  How about any of the local "SNB" groups (there seems to be several break-off groups)?  I'm so intrigued.
