1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Flight of the Conchords Cross Stitch - if that's what you're into on: August 17, 2008 06:44:47 PM
Flight of the Conchords -- definitely worth crafting over! I'm totally into it Cheesy

My mom died in April 2001, and my dad and I are finally getting our lives back together, which means a lot of work. Our house is completely filled with junk, and we too have had a cat with a peeing problem. Thank you for sharing -- now I know I'm not the only one.

What a gorgeous spine! How long did it take?

I would KILL to be in a fibers class.

That's totally brilliant. The fabric is fantastic. How durable is the glue?

Mad love to Norway, also!

Oh hell yes. Very grim. Decidedly awesome.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Pushing Daisies Knitting to the rescue! on: October 11, 2007 02:53:00 PM
There was an episode of Hamtaro that had knitting in it. Not that I watch Hamtaro.

I hope that, on Pushing Daisies, they have a dramatic plot point in which Emerson Cod is outed as a male knitter, and finds out that lots of men knit. Kind of a "very special episode," only about knitting instead of crack.
8  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Re: spray paint on: September 10, 2007 01:47:03 PM
Yeah, I had a feeling this wouldn't be such a great idea. Either that or it was going to be revolutionary. This summer I got acquainted with metallic gold spray paint at the summer camp I was working at, and for a while I was fantasizing about spraying everything gold -- I wanted to spray paint a couch gold, which I recognized as a terrible idea right away. I guess this is a similar urge.

I think I'll try it anyway, just because I don't think it would be too expensive just to try, and if it did work out then that would be awesome too.

Thanks for your reply!
9  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / spray paint on: September 09, 2007 11:52:35 PM
This is probably awful, but I was wondering if it would be a good idea to spray paint yarn. I have cotton crochet thread in mind, and I would crochet or knit something before painting it. I'm sure the paint would rub off, but do you think I could spray some kind of sealant on there so it wouldn't rub off too badly? If it caused the knitted piece to become stiff, that wouldn't be so bad, it might add some interesting possibilities (perhaps some structural integrity for knit/crochet jewelry or sculpture).

What do you guys think?

Thanks! I decreased by k2tog every 1.5 rows, which took some concentrationbut I think it was worth it. I've been experimenting with knitted cones lately and I like the fact that the slope is more severe with a decrease every 1.5 rows, but not quite as tedious as every other row.

I think stocking caps really could be the hot new fashion. I can just see a couple dozen runway models in Milan fighting over the last Gucci stocking cap; designers making huge poofy ones, long skinny ones, short fat ones; Urban Outfitters stealing a hat pattern from a lesser known artist.
