1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: February 24, 2005 10:25:12 AM
  I got this weird electric shock feeling all the way through my body. 

My brother calls that 'doing the bacon dance'.

Ah I do like Everyday Food, it has saved my life, although I am suspecting that the recipes are starting to recycle and get tired. How many variations of chili and recipes with sweet potato are there? But I find that NONE of the recipes from the regular Martha Stewart magazine have turned out for me. Sometimes the main problem is that I can't get white-purified-truffle-jerusalem-artichoke-artisinal-first-press blablablab ingredients in my small town. Fascist.
I like that magazine. I look at the pretty pictures. Laugh a bit, then usually put it away.

Dear lord! The other day MY sewing machine needle broke up and hit me in the head! Close calls...

When I was little I got too close to the sewing machine and whacked my forehead pretty badly on the little lever that goes up and down with the needle.
Then i tried to make a button hole for my Barbie dress by stabbing a big pair of scissors through the fabric, right into my index finger. I have a lovely triangular scar there to this day.
As a jeweller, I often came home with no skin left on my fingers. I once got a finger infection (in my nail bed) that required antibiotics.
My favourite one comedy-wise was when a friend of mine was working at a toy store, and tried glueing a wooden toy soldier back together with crazy glue. I got a phone call to go help her (I was a supervisor) and she just stood there and held her hand up, toy soldier attached. it was stuck to at least three fingers.
You know? I think these are battle scars - signs that we're actually DOING something instead of just idly-handedly watching tv. Good for us.

Don't despair. I am of the belief that every person knits differently. It's a highly personal thing, and as long as the end result is ok and you're able to follow patterns ok, no worries.
My mom taught me to knit, and she's dutch, so I am a pit-knitter (keep my right needle tucked in my armpit). But different needles and different projects call for different methods, so keeping an open mind is what it's all about.

Where I fall down is in the sewing-things-up stage. I just make it up as I go along. Tongue

I think your cat looks like he just KNOWS how dapper he looks in those ties. He's feelin' handsome.

If I treid that on my gang of marauders, they'd team up and kill me in my sleep.
