I love that pattern, very bold. I wish I would have kept my old toybox.

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Welcome to Oklahoma gift basket for a Brazilian exchange student? on: July 22, 2006 07:03:38 PM
My family is hosting a foreign exchange student from Brazil starting next month. When she shows up, we want to give her a "welcome to Oklahoma" gift basket with a few thing she needs and some little gifts and things to make her feel comfortable. We have been chatting with her over email for a few months, but we don't really know her that well.  She is 18.

We know so far that we want to get her a house key made in a cute design, but the rest is all up in the air (some nice soap? snacks? what kind?)

Any Ideas? Thanks!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is crochet harder than knitting? on: July 20, 2006 09:06:14 PM
Personally, I think knitting is easier.

When I first decided that I wanted to learn how to knit or crochet, I checked out a book on each, my mom tried knitting, and I tried crochet. I got frustrated with both after a while and put them away. I was bent on learning crochet because I had heard that it was faster, but then after trying knitting again, it just clicked. Crochet is still hard for me.

Once you get down the rhythm of it, you can knit and watch TV at the same time without looking down more than once every few minutes, which is cool. Also, I think that knitting is more attractive that crochet. All crochet stitches look kind of the same, but with knitting, there are so many techniques that you can use to make the fabric to look different (IE-  different stitch patterns like stockinette or ribbing, cables, and far more varied lace than you can create with crochet. Knitting isn't really all that math-y unless create your own patterns or modify existing ones to fit you. I've also found that gauge is easier to find with knitting.

Another thing that I think is worth mentioning is that knitting has a more extensive community than crochet. Of course, maybe that means that you should learn crochet and help build it up.   Cheesy

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: ...Because wasting time brilliantly is a craft, too!--the revival on: June 17, 2006 08:34:11 AM
Yeah, I posted in that thread. I was just looking for it. I needed some ideas for my 101 in 1001 days challenge.

I don't remember what was posted though. Here are some new ones that come to mind, though:

1.  Buy a universally fun gift, wrap it, and give it to a casheir late at night who has to work
2. You could do the 26 things challenge: http://www.sh1ft.org/26things/
3. Do a bookcrossing:  http://www.bookcrossing.com/home
4. Figure out how to get yourself on TV

That's all I can think of at the moment. I have more written down somewhere
