greenchick--- you weren't kidding when you said it was forgiving.  although it smells like bigfoot's armpit at the moment, i am in love!! wooo hooo.... felting rocks.

on the CC i threw in a strand of this sparkly stuff and i absolutely love it.  the zippered pillowcase thing did the trick in 10 minutes flat.  wow!!!  although with my obsessive tendencies, i must admit i opened the washer about 6 times to check and see how it was coming.  

Look-- i put it on my bed to get a good pic and my kitty, Binks just couldn't stop nosing at it.

3  How to Lengthen Sleeves? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by gretchen28 on: March 15, 2004 11:42:46 AM
ok creative peeps,  i need some ideas...

my friend matt needs my help in brainstorming how to make the sleeves longer on this really fun and tacky western shirt he HAD to have.
the thing is, he's got these arms that go on forever and ever and the bottom of the cuffs hit him about 3 inches higher than he would like.   nice, huh?

Here's his email to me explaining more of what he would like:
Anyway, I really want the sleeves to be ultra long so even when I play the guitar the cuff will still be way down on my hands.  
And in an ideal world I'd want the cuffs redone to be bigger so they slide up the hand and i'd love to have five or six snaps instead of three and a really big flare on the cuff with the cuff being in a teardrop shape when snapped... as opposed to round.  Know what I mean?  Kind of like a "french cuff"

Sooo, i am thinking that this sounds very complicated and i should forget it?!   How do you put snaps on?  how the heck do you sew a custom cuff??  Can you all think of other options here??

hey, i LOVED making my wine charms last year... these are a little "dirty" but everyone loves them.  or so they tell me.  maybe they secretly hate them but who cares, they wiled away many an hour.

Thanks for the INSPIRADO!

you know, if you're just begging to crochet it's wonderful to get a HUGE crochet hook and use 4 strands of yarn as one...  your scarf will go so quickly!   For fun i usually use 4 strands of similar colors, that way you wouldn't even have to worry about changing colors at the end of rows.

for example, i made the throw below in just 3 nights using 4 yarns as one.   if you like to finish things QUICKLY before you get bored with them like i do, it's a great technique.
