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! : )

2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / am I stupid? re: kittyville hat on: September 05, 2006 07:35:20 AM
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!)

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / where nerds collide on: July 11, 2005 06:22:46 AM
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.

4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / felt scraps to cool to ditch, too small to sew on: January 12, 2005 09:26:36 AM
I have all these great felt scraps, from sweaters I felted to make hats out of.  I have a notion that I can use them to make little felt balls or beads or animals or something. I've seen projects like this discussed, but only using raw wool. What do you think?  Any felters out there with advice?
