2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Paper Shrinking on Scrabble Pendant on: November 18, 2009 08:17:56 PM
Hello, I tried making scrabble tile pendants with square pieces of wood instead of actual scrabble tiles. I used japanese paper, applied mod podge to the back to adhere it to the piece of wood, mod podge to the top, and then used DG3. They are not dry yet (I made them last night) but when I checked on them I noticed that the paper shrank.  Is this a problem with the paper, mod podge, or is it because I didn't use actual scrabble tiles?

any help is appreciated!

Is this the yarn of the moment or what?  Their are so many FO's made out of this stuff.   Is it really that great?  And why?  I am so curious.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Loop-d-Loop Octagon Purse on: February 10, 2006 09:26:32 PM
Has anyone tried the octagon purse from Loop-d-Loop? 

I decided to make it for the Knitting Olympics and cast on at 2 today, and then cast on again, and now, things just don't seem quite right with the short rows.  Actually, I think I have the concept of short rows, I just don't understand the directions. 

If anyone has tackled this one, and has any advice, I would appreciate it.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Disturbing Knit Ads on: January 30, 2006 07:48:02 PM
OK, I have to comment on the Knit Care (by Fairfiled) ads that are in every knit magazine...there is just something not right about them.  See page 31 of the Winter Vogue Knitting to refresh your memory.  There are always three young ladies in knitted bathing suits and although that sounds ok, they always creep me out. And this feeling goes further than disgust at the saggy knit bathing suit crotches, they disturb me. 

Am I alone in this?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / those happy hookers on: December 21, 2005 02:05:08 PM
I just took a peek at the crochet threads, because hey, I too crochet!  But oh my, are they into some craaaazy stuff.  There are stuffed animals up the ying yang  Roll Eyes and dare I mention the male body parts Shocked?  whereas we have a digestive system. 

Interesting stuff over there, but I will stick to mainly knitting with crochet edgings and what not. Wink
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fuzzy Soft Caplet and Ribbon Shrug on: August 13, 2005 02:51:42 PM
Hello All!

The caplet was my first large project.  It was made with 10 balls of Skacel Luxor I bought at the Yarn Lady's bag sale.  The pattern is from Easy Knitting magazine (spring/summer 2005).  What i loved the most about the caplet is that the collar is knitted to be knit side out and it, plus this was my first time working with shoulder shaping, it was great!  The edging is crochet.  I really think they left something out of the patrtern (I even contacted the magazine, but they said it was fine Cry ) so I really winged it for the end half.

The shrug started as another project in the same magazine, however, there was a gauge problem and I ended up frogging it Embarrassed.  Let me tell you, it was well worth it to purchase a ball winder for that, especially since there were 7 balls of yarn in there!  Its a drop stitch pattern and the yarn is LLH/GGH Venezia (also from the bag sale).


I am trying to learn from my gauge problems, and have been starting with the gauge swatches (and I did for the drop stitch but changed it up anyway, dumb me).   Cheesy 
8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Needle Holder and Dowel Needles on: August 13, 2005 02:37:02 PM
I am finally posting the slightly altered SNB needle holder (full of some dowen needles).  I took a craftsters advice and added an additional pocket for the smaller needles and used bias tape.  It was a hard project for me because I really do not how to cut rectangles that must fit together.  I figured I was doing it wrong when I couldn't figure out how to do it without using my dads woodworking square. 

I am really pleased with the end project, but you can tell by the pic of my cat, he was so bored with me.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fringed Triangle Ribbon Scarf on: June 13, 2005 08:54:25 PM
I just finished a Knit One, Crochet Too pattern for Ribbon Triangle out of Trendsetter Segue ribbon yarn.   The cool thing about this pattern is that the fringe is made by unraveling the last 4 sts after the inc/dec when the scarf is all knitted up.  I was so afraid that if I had made a mistake that the whole scarf would unravel; it looks like I did it right!


By the way I love this yarn, it is so beautiful!
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fuzzy Crochet Flip Flops on: April 10, 2005 05:36:59 PM
These fliop flops are so easy to make!  and with the $1.99 flip flops at Wal-Mart, you can't go wrong. 

My favorite are the green ones with the bamboo bottom; they look like grass and remind me of summer.  I wore them to Home Depot, and recived a lot of nasty looks from the men in the wood section (I was getting dowels to make knitting needles), but, while in the garden section, someone remarked that I was going to have to mow my sandals!  The yarn is Red Heart Foxy.

I can see little girls loving the pink ones, they look like they should be worn to a birthday party.  The yarn is JoAnne Sensations Breeze.


Hope you like them.  I used the Lion Brand crochet technique:

I hope you enjoy them.
Coming soon, two more pairs!  A tasteful black, and not so tasteful orange and yellow.
