1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: How's Your etsy Shop Doing? on: June 24, 2006 08:48:26 PM
If you can find them, I know some online sellers take checks---they just wont ship your item until it clears, so it takes like 3 weeks to get your stuff.

Also I've bought stuff with money orders. Those are actually faster than checks.

I think people are creatures, not of habit, but of convenience.

4  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Off Topic on: March 09, 2006 07:39:47 PM
I recently got into a discussion with jMi about the subject of off topic conversation. There are a few problems that come into play. A short list of them would include:

1. Bandwidth
2. Time spent by mods cleaning up the boards.
3. Craftsters upset that their post was deleted.
4. The fact that this is a craft forum, not a chat forum.

I'd like to present my solution, which I feel, solves all of these problems.

We set up a board for off topic conversation that constantly expires according to time. This would mean no work for anyone cleaning it up, no one can be upset because their post was deleted, bandwidth shouldn't be a problem, and although I know this is a craft board, there's been lots of people interested in simply chatting with one another for many reasons. It's been pointed out that there are a million other forums to chat on, but I think Craftsters have a sort of camraderie and would like to expand upon that. jMi said an expiring board was possible and that I should bring it up and see what others think.

So, how do you all feel about it? Is it a good idea? Do you have suggestions as to how it can be better?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cap Sleeves or 3/4? Knitted Shell. Need your opinions... on: February 26, 2006 10:40:09 PM
I vote for 3/4 sleeves. Suppose you want to wear it over a top that's not a tank top? Whatever's under it, I think 3/4 would be sexier, and it would make for a more versitile garment.

I did a 2X2 rib scarf with similar yarn (Cartwheel) and size 15 needles. It looks great, I wear it all the time!

I actually have so much thick hair knitting needles are all I can use to put a bun in my hair. I'd been doing it years before I started knitting. Start doing it routinely, watch the looks and smart ass comments you get. It does help to ward off sleazy guys though Smiley

Well, the guage is 3 stitches per inch. My arms are 11 inches so that's 33 stitches---which doesn't quite work out with the increases. I opted to go with 32 since I liked how the tight ones looked.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What yarn can I Use? on: February 23, 2006 08:44:09 PM
I did my first and only shawl on size 15 needles, no fancy stuff---just garter stitch and it took about a week. I'm not trying to scare you off, honest. It's just what happened to me and I'm not a super slow knitter. I don't want you to start it and not finish and be bummed.
