411  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Question: blocking 100% polyester yarn? on: June 10, 2005 11:04:43 PM
I tried the search feature on this subject and found some posts about the ineffectiveness of blocking projects made with acrylic yarn...is this the same as 100% polyester? (dumb question?)

I am working on a project using Lion's Brand "Lion Suede" - it is the right size but the shape is a little wonky. I wondered if blocking it might help. Thanks for any advice!

413  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: what sells.... on: May 24, 2005 02:09:16 PM
I spend most of the summer (all two or three months of it!) in denial that winter is going to return before I know it so I, personally, would not be too excited about buying a big wintery toque or scarf. However, if it was light and airy (i.e. it doesn't remind me of impending winter!!), I might consider it. I know a girl who has done quite well at outdoor markets selling toques made from lighter yarns like cotton or hemp. I have also seen gorgeous scarves made out of ribbon yarn, etc. that might be more appealing to your summer shoppers!

Hope this helps! Good luck with your "crafty business venture"!

Thank you everyone for your advice...I am going to try another round of transferring madness on the weekend, so I will have to try using some of these tips!
415  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Baby/Child Swap (no actual kid swappin!) (SIGNUP 5/13-6/01; MAIL BY 6/30) on: May 21, 2005 07:52:17 PM
pajama_mama1 : I think that is the point of the survey you fill out when you sign up for the swap - when you get your partner, the organizer will send you their information (kids ages, likes, dislikes, wishlist, etc). Hopefully that should give you some ideas of what to make. (At least, I hope that is what happens...)

This is my first swap too...so if I am way off here, maybe a veteran swapper can fill us both in!!  Smiley

Thanks for the fantastic idea, OCEANofAWESOME!

I only made the apron & napkins "from scratch".

I bought the coasters for $1.99/set of 4 at Superstore (kind of like the Canadian version of Super Wal-Mart). They were the kind that come apart so that you can put a photo in. I found some Bettie bondage pictures online, resized them to fit and printed them off. Super cheap & super easy! I am sure that you could find something similar at your local dollar store (or, if you are in Canada, at Superstore or Loblaw's)!

This one sounds like fun - for any Canadians out there (or anyone else), there could be infinite possibilities for some "Trailer Park Boys" themed crafting! OMG I am addicted to that show...even though it is TERRIBLE!

I am a newbie swapper though and need to get my first swap done (end of June) before I can pariticpate in any others.
