11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: ROLLER DERBY!!!! on: May 06, 2006 03:38:46 PM
So... when would be a good time to start swappin'? I'm wrapping up finals this week, and I leave for Chile mid- July. Think we can shoot for a mid-June send off? How long would you like the crafting period to be? What kind of expectations would you have for your partners in terms of actual time spent crafting and/or size of finished project? Is it more important that the items be derby-related or just derby-girl-made?

That's a lot of questions. Whew. I guess this means I'm stepping up to organize (unless someone else wants a shot...)

And no, I'm not on the DVD. Sigh. I just started bouting in February.

Might it be worth it to combine the cup shaping and lining instructions for the 'bikini in a bag' withe the skirt for 'blissful'? It seems like there are better examples in the book on how to make a non-nipple-baring top that keeps one's breasts inside!

OK rollergirls, whaddaya say? There's new Sublime Stitching patterns, homemade helmet covers, bags for smelly gear, cute sachets to make said gear less smelly, and anything else quad skate-related. I know you're here somewhere... let's do this!

Thank you soooo much!!! All the crafty girls on the roller derby boards are psyched. Mine should get here this week, and I hope to be among the first rollergirls to sport a freshly embroidered uniform this season. Rock on, and if you're ever in Tucson, we'll hold a bout ticket for you!

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: knitting through the back loop????? on: April 30, 2006 09:29:29 PM
I knit through the back loop, too, and I worried at first. But then I realized that the only times that it'll really impact your work is when you're increasing and decreasing. And even then, you just need to know how your technique affects your results.

Increasing- A common increase calls for you to knit into both the front and the back of the stitch. As long as you know that you usually work through the back, no big deal.

Decreasing- When the pattern calls for k2tog, make sure you goi through the front of the stitches, because k2tog is for right-leaning decreases, and if you just knit 'em together your way, it'll lean to the left. However, when your pattern says SKP, it's calling for a left-leaning decrease. Just knit through the back loops (so much easier!) and the decrease will go right exactly where you need it to.

Hope this helps!

Yay desert! I'd like a swap, or a fabric hunt at SAS, or a craft night at Shot in the Dark/ coffeehouse of your choice...

Have you checked with your local roller derby yet? I met a few of them at the national tournament in Tucson this February, and they seemed pretty damn cool. Here's their site: http://www.bayareaderbygirls.com/

Looks like it'll be great for these mild spring nights. I'm also in Tucson, and this may be the thing that finally gets me moving. To the fabric store!

Dear geek-patrol-

Sorry I wasn't able to post sooner. I recieved Thursday, listened to them that night, and loved them! The music was fantastic, the covers were absolutly gorgeous, and it was great to have a lyric sheet- so thoughtful! I sincerely appreciate all of the effort that you put into this project, and I am so sorry that I didn't give you the kudos you deserved in a timely fashion. I know what the "I wonder if she got it? I wonder if she liked it?" headscratching is like, and I feel like a bad spud for doing it to you.

P.S. But now I am a bad spud listening to Arcade Fire, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Pavement. Yay!!!

Dear everyone else-
These playlists are awesome. Four CDs?!!!??? You guys rock.
