1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Yarn Swap: continued info on: May 10, 2005 06:29:57 AM
I am the person that she was suppsed to send it to.  Sniff!  I was really looking forward to revamping my stash.  Funny, I hosted a yarn swap on the Knittyboard with 15 people on it and it went around in less than 6 months with no hitches.  Maybe Rae will eventually feel really bad about it and send the box on.....

Is there going to be another issue of Magknits?  I know that they stopped doing thier newsletters and nothing has been posted in the forum for ages.  The winter issue should be coming out soon.

Does anyone know what happened to Magknits?  Is it ever coming back?
5  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Re: YARN DYEING 101 - KOOL AID on: August 18, 2004 06:38:14 PM
I just finished dyeing yarn for a project using Wilton's icing dyes.  They come in a lot of colors and these can be picked up in the cake decorating isle of Michael's for less than $2 a jar.  You only need a little bit for a lot of color.  I dipped the handle of a spoon in the jar (it's a gel-like substance) and that is all it took.  Thye come out in really vibrant colors since it is so concentrated.  I used it with the directions from Stitch n Bitch and made sure that I used vinegar with it.  Plus, I am sure that they ahve icing/cake dye in other countries!

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Blender Dave Chappelle hat on: July 29, 2004 04:46:37 PM
This technique is explained in the Weekend Knits book.  I made a hat out of it, but my guage was really tight, so it was very tough to work on, and very confusing.  Basically you cast on with 2 colors and do a 1x1 rib, purling in one color and knitting on the other.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: help with circular needles on: July 24, 2004 08:00:41 PM
29" are perfect ofr knitting flat items on circs.  I almost never use straight needles anymore, I always end up poking someone with them.  Just think of them as 2 separate needles (each end) and knit back and forth, turning the whole thing after every row.  Hope this helps!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ballet-style wrap top??? on: July 24, 2004 07:36:00 PM
There is one in the book Hollywood Knits that is exactly what you are looking for.  It hink it is even called a Ballerina Wrap.  I have been wanting to amke it myself, but I really don't know what I would wear it with.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Overwhelmed with Old FIlm Slides!! on: July 18, 2004 07:17:37 AM
I recently was given a large box of old slides from when my father was in the Phillipines in the 60s.  We have hundreds, even a complete tray of slides on the theme of how rice is made.  I am already making a lampshade, but I am wondering if anyone had any other ideas for these?
