1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Thoughts on Solder Paste? on: May 16, 2008 10:55:09 AM
Has anyone used solder paste before?  I've only used sheet solder in my jewelry pieces, and I don't have a ton of experience with it, so I'm wondering if there are any drawbacks to solder paste.  It seems like it would be much easier to work with, so not only am I considering using it for my own work, I'm also thinking of using it in my high school art classroom.  Any advice?

Yeah, what they said. Smiley  LOVE the basketweave scarf.  It looks very impressive and the directions don't seem complicated at all!  Seems like you get a lot of bang for your buck on that one. Thanks for sharing your work!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Taking a sweater IN? on: November 23, 2007 09:33:07 AM
I knit a sweater for my dad last Christmas...and after an entire year, he has finally admitted that it's too big! I'm wondering if I could seam the sides and arms to make them smaller.  I don't know if it makes a difference, but I knit the sweater in the round, so there aren't any seams to begin with.  I know I could mattress stitch the sides and arms and I read something about even maching sewing them...but I guess my biggest question is, what do I do with the excess material?  Is there a way to remove the excess without having the whole thing unravel?

I made mine over the summer and just realized I never posted it! 

I love the Cotton-Ease!  More info on my blog, of course.
Thanks again for the pattern!

By the way, I did wind up getting a sweater stone...and I use it all the time.  It's the best!

I've been eyeing this pattern for a while...but I finally ordered it today after finding Silky Wool on sale for $3.49 per ball at Webs!!  I ordered the dark brown and I'm still waiting for my pattern to arrive.  I usually steer clear of patterns that have miles of stockinette, but this one was too cute to pass up!  I'm sure I'll be knitting this one while watching tv, just like eyeloveit!

I'm using the same cable panel on both the back and the front, so it's just a matter of making sure I add enough extra stitches so that I don't choke myself.  Tongue

I've attempted some fancy math, converting inches to percentages, and I think I've figured out how many additional stitches to cast on, using Amethystlily's numbers.  But any additional advice would be great!

Thanks!  I should probably go pick up some Cotton Ease in a color I really like, but I thought I'd ask---just in case I get the urge to cast on before I can get to the store.  Wink

Did you use up both balls of Cotton Ease?  Or most of it, anyway?  I'm checking my meager stash for yarn subs, but I don't think I have 414 yards of anything I'd want to use for this.
