I just found the most amazing store today and thought I should really add it on to this post. The Habitat for Humaity ReStore under the Morrison bridge on SE Water St. is so cool!!! So many tiles(I see many many mosaics), paints, spray paint for 50 cents a can, wood stains, polyuruthanes plus house builing stuff like doors, knobs, wood, cement, linoleum.

It was great!

oh wow.It has happened. I FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT!! I used this pattern http://lupinbunny.blogspot.com/2007/01/baby-e-noro-entrelac-scarf.html

Somehow it cliked and I have about 4 repeats done so far!! Yippeee!! Thanks so much for your help everyone. I had some trouble picking up stitches without slipping and it is pretty messy so I think I'll frog it and start over.

dropped stitches are inevitable--luckily you have crochet hooks to pick them up with!! Smiley

I would use a less slippery yarn--I get mad at my acrylic blends so I use wool for projects where slipping is a problem. But really, you will get less as time goes on (until you try dpns *evil laughter* and then yea... wool).
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / entrelac instructions? on: March 03, 2007 11:43:31 PM
I am trying to learn entrelac from a pattern at awww.frecklesandpurls.com--it is pdf on the right hand side. I keep getting confused and I think I need to take it in more baby steps--I can get to tier 2 and then it is all over.

Are there any great online tuts for this? Even a book you learned from? I really want to conquer this technique and show it who's boss if ya know what I mean. Wink I have taught myself all kinds of stuff and I refuse to accept that I will need to go down to the LYS and pay for a class to learn entrelac.

Thank you!!

8  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / [SOLVED] gardening board? on: February 27, 2007 09:43:17 AM
What do you guys think about a gardening board? I am just starting up and have realized that my greatest reative resource is null or info!!! ARG!

Is gardening crafty enough? I would think so, but perhaps not. I'm sure a lot of craftsters have beautiful gardens though....I want to PICK THEIR BRAINS MHWAAHAHA!

Im going mega extra slow with my knitting recently!! I have a scarf and will make a hat but I think that may be it for me. I am gonna send a bunch of other things like 100 sewing kits and some thrifted clothing. This project is more about sending out ANYTHING at all to me to get back in the swing of giving.

Smiley Good luck all!!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Seattle Knitting Expo--any thoughts? on: February 24, 2007 07:18:15 AM
I just found out about this and seeing as I live only 3hrs away I will probably need to go. Has anyone been? I am looking forward to cheap yarn--is that a reasonable expectation of this type of expo? Are classes worth a wad of cash on a college student budget? I am excited but I need to know what I am getting into. I just started knitting in november but love it and knit almost everyday.  Tongue

Thanks so much!
