1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / glass on glass action on: November 06, 2010 09:53:41 AM
I'm fastening glass to glass... thrift store vases mostly, artfully (I hope) piled on top of each other.

I've started with some home cement type stuff. Goopy and SUPER NOXIOUS. Also takes a while to dry and is pretty sloppy and expensive. in other words, not ideal. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for gluing glass to glass. I'd like something that dries clear and is thick enough to fill in the gaps in between the ridges and patterns on the glass, and form a tight seal. I'm thinking some kind of caulk? but I've never worked with it. I don't think a hot glue gun would be secure enough, but that might be close to the right consistency of goo.

Also, how about drilling into glass? Porcelain drill bit? Or am I making that up?

Photo is of a work in progress, just getting started, so don't be judgy! : )

Your hats look great. I love mine, but i have to admit, I look like a total dork in it! The 2 lovelies pictured in the book both have bangs, and i think that would help. Also I have big black glasses, which I think does not help. I still wear it all the time because its super cozy.

I used some Lamb's Pride worsted weight, Blue Blood Red or something. I love that yarn. And I love my circular needle which is really shiny, and slick and fast. It seemed really expensive when i bought it, but it has been worth it.

I think this is also a great learning project for picking up stithces which I think is a really cool technique - intimidating at first, but really pretty simple to do.

I will try to post a photo someday soon, of me in all my dorkilicious glory!

That is super cool.

ALso I think I understand it better when i realize you wrap it around your back. i kept looking at going, "where does my head go?" Then I realized what was the long flap on the T is the back. Am I just confusing people more? If so, sorry.

When I get the time I just might have to do this. I have some flugffy angora I've been looking for a reason to use.

I JUST finished this hat. I had a real hard time with the string ends ( I wound up adjusting the pattern a little and came out with triangles instead of diamonds)and putting the horns on was pretty far out. It was a really great learning project.I wonder if I was dong a cable cast-on wrong, but it worked, so I'll just leave it. Also, I wish I would have positioned my horns better. They are too far back.

Also it's a good way to learn about picking up stitches for attaching the earflaps and the horns.

Maybe I will post a pic later. Good luck!

This is georgeous! I also checked your "future projects" on flickr. You're ambitious, and have fabulous taste. that's a great idea a great way to get inspoired and keep track of your ideas.

Hey, am I missing some crucial information about knitting in the round or stockinette stitch? I have finished the 1.5 inches of seed stitch the pattern starts with and did about 4 rows of the SS, and it looked like garter stich or something. SHould I be starting wiht a K row or a P row? Or wil lit just flatten out eventually?

Originally I started with a knit row and when I finished that row, switched to purl, and so on. It doesn't look right. That is how you do stockinette, isn't it? I'm confused!  Please help?!

Thank you in advance!

(ps. other kittyville wearer: looks great with yr pink hair!)

Craft geek, meet math nerd. An article about a prof. who uses crocheted forms to demonstarte mathematic principles. It's pretty cool. I hope the link works... you might have to register for NYT online if you really want to read it. No chartge, no hassle.

Just thought you hookers might get a kick out of it.
