21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Tarot swap on: September 13, 2005 12:46:05 PM
When do you think most people would be interesting in doing something like this?  I've never organized but I wouldn't mind organizing this (if nobody else wanted to) if it wasn't too huge.

Sounds like an amazing idea...I would def. be in for this one!
23  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Fall Bag swap? on: September 13, 2005 06:38:13 AM
I really like this idea.  I would LOVE if it went through too, since I need a new bag.  Wink
24  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: anyone know whats up with xXcherrie-lynnXx on: September 13, 2005 06:17:06 AM
Stargirl...Maybe there's more to the story, like maybe the person had been sick for awhile and they knew that death was likely or maybe, she thought she was dealing with everything okay and then it just hit her.  I was like that when my grandfather died...I was "okay" for weeks, left home to get back to university and broke down totally when I got there.  I understand that you're frustrated but, like someone said, it's a risk you take when swapping, even if the other person isn't trying to be mean, sometimes the swaps don't work out.
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: NEED: a good learn to knit site on: September 11, 2005 09:33:19 AM
Knittinghelp.com is a great on but I think there are other sites that people have used too and found helpful.  Of course, I can't remember the sites and never bothered bookmarking them.   Roll Eyes  Try doing a craftster search, you should get lots of hits since I know this is a popular question.  Good luck!  Grin

I like the idea of seeing what people can do with all those grocery bags.  Personally, my family has dogs so *ahem* we pretty much use all the bags we get but I would still really be interested in seeing what people come up with.  So far, I only know of people who cut them into strips and then crochet or knit with them...there must be MORE to use them for!!!

Oh man...just checking back.  Yeah, I'm SOOO blind for not seeing the link. Embarrassed  At least now I know where the pattern is...

*skulks back into dark corner to hide embarassment*

Oooh, ooh.  Shara, I seem to share your affliction of buying "sample" yarn.  What is the project you have in the works?  (if you don't mind me asking that is...)

I NEED to figure out something to do with all this yarn because I cannot BEAR the idea of getting rid of yarn but I'm on a yarn diet now until the stash is reduced.

Yarn diets suck.   Embarrassed

Some of the places online have great yarns for great prices.  Check out www.knitpicks.com or www.elann.com.  I would also have to second checking out second hand stores, if you're not looking for yarn for a HUGE project (say, you're only making mitts, a shrug, or a hat) you can find some good yarn at thrift stores.  You have to keep your mind open about colour but if you check fairly often you can find some bargains.  I pass a giant thrift store on my way home from work and I stop in about every other day (well....I used to, before my stash got so big it started threatening to attack me), I've found amazing yarn, much of it all natural fibres, for $1 a skein or less.

If you're looking to make a single coloured sweater for your 6'5", 300 lb uncle...you will probably have to shell out the money to buy yarn the "expensive" way.  If you want to make smaller projects, or don't mind having stripes, the thrift store is your best friend.   Grin

As for recycling a silk blouse...I'm not speaking from experience so I could be wrong but I think you would need quite a few blouses in order to recycle them and get enough fiber to knit anything substantial.

Good luck!

Silly but quick question...where is this pattern from?  I'm newbie-ish and have wanted to move onto cabling but was a little intimidated by the idea of a cabled sweater (what can I say...I get bored quickly with projects, a cabled sweater would NEVER get finished).

Everyone's scarves are turning out beautifully...I really would like to give this a try.  Smiley
