1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re:voodoo wristwarmers from knitty on: March 16, 2004 01:56:08 AM
Those came out beautifully, I love them and I am insanely jealous!!  I really wanted to make these with lion brand clover yarn, which is this great spring-y green, and then attatch some crotchet flowers to the  wrist ends..  BUT:  I just couldnt find circular needles small enough.   the smallest I have is the smallest i could find anywhere, i think 22".  I assume im missing out on something rather large, or I just need to get my hands on some real small circulars..  or..   double pointed needles but i don't know how that works....  help?

Filling them with PLASTER!!!!    Such a simple solution for an issue that has plagued me for a while. I posted a very very similar idea before..   the table looks amazing, I love the design, it looks fantastic.   I wonder if you could tint the plaster a different color?    does the actual table have a recess on the top?      ::envisioning wall o' bottle caps::       i am giddy with excitement.  
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:bottle caps? on: December 30, 2003 08:10:11 PM
Hi..  I myself have been quite perplexed with my ever-increasing, almost overflowing supply of stewarts bottle caps. I have seen them used in numerous ways : bottle cap belts ( with the seat belt buckle, cute! ),  filled with resin and little beads,phrases,or iconography placed inside, as pins, magnets, etc..  all very cute, but what to do when you have them en masse?
   so I thought it would be a good idea to make a bunch of stepping stones out of them..  I am not exactly sure how i would do this, a base of hardened cement, then a layer of grout, place the bottle caps into the grout, let dry?  
  Another cool thing I did last summer was take a bunch of them and drilled 4 holes in each cap..  2 on either side, and connected them with little jump rings,  then 2 fasteners and made a great noisy bracelet that hurt quite a bit when rubbed against at all.    
   sorry i may have rambled on.. this is my first post! WOOHOO!
